The Jude and Laurel approach to privacy

Jude and Laurel inc. (“Jude and Laurel” “we,” “our” or “us”), is committed to protecting your privacy. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains how we collect, store, process, transfer, share and use data that identifies or is associated with you (“Personal Information”).

This ensures that your payment information is processed with total confidentiality. When you sign up for an account with us, our Secure Socket Layer (SSL) software encrypts all contact information you input before it is sent to us.
