How We Protect Information
We take several measures to safeguard the collection, transmission and storage of the data we collect.
Although we strive to employ reasonable protections for your information that are appropriate to its sensitivity, we do not guarantee or warrant the security of the information you share with us and we are not responsible for the theft, destruction, loss or inadvertent disclosure of your information or content. No system is 100% secure.
The Services uses industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of personal information and credit card numbers. Just-Roomies.com engages a company that is an industry leader in online security and Services verification to strengthen the security of Just-Roomies.com’s Services.
The Services are registered with site identification authorities so that your browser can confirm Just-Roomies.com’s identity before any personally identifiable information is sent. In addition, Just-Roomies.com’s secure servers protect this information using advanced firewall technology.
To help ensure that these measures are effective in preventing unauthorized access to your private information, you should be aware of the security features available to you through your browser.
You should use a security-enabled browser to submit your credit card information and other personal information at the Services. Please note that if you do not use a SSL-capable browser, you are at risk for having data intercepted.
Most browsers have the ability to notify you if you change between secure and insecure communications, receive invalid services identification information for the Services you are communicating with, or send information over an unsecured connection.
Just-Roomies.com recommends that you enable these browser functions to help ensure that your communications are secure. You can also monitor the URL of the services you are visiting (secure URLs begin with https:// rather than http://), along with the security symbol of your browser to help identify when you are communicating with a secure server.
You can also view the details of the security certificate of the services to which you are connected. Please check the validity of any Services you connect to using secure communications.
While Just-Roomies.com continues to work hard to protect your personal information, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure, and Just-Roomies.com cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Just-Roomies.com. Transmitting personal information is done at your own risk.

EU Members’ Rights
If you are habitually located in the European Union, you have the right to access, rectify, download or erase your information, as well as the right to restrict and object to certain processing of your information.

Where you have previously provided your consent, such as to permit us to process data about you, you have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your information at any time.
