Please note that Jonaize contains links to other sites. Web sites that are linked to Jonaize may have privacy policies that differ from that of Jonaize. Jonaize will not assume responsibility of the actions of those sites.
1. What information does Jonaize collect?
Our goal is to foster and develop a closer relationship and understanding between ourselves and our clients. To achieve this goal, Jonaize must collect information so we can understand you as an individual and respond to your needs effectively. While you are not required to register for any services on Jonaize, some Services like the Client Communication and Collaboration (C3) may not be accessible to you.
Information collected online is usually defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable.
Anonymous information refers to data that cannot be tied back to a specific individual. For example, we collect some information each time a visitor visits a page on Jonaize so we can improve the overall quality of your online experience with us. We collect the visitor's IP address, internet service provider (ISP), referral data (e.g. the Internet address of the last Web page visited by a user before clicking over to Jonaize), browser and platform type (e.g. a Netscape browser on a Macintosh platform), date / time stamp and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. This information is provided by your browser and ISP and we cannot use it to trace or track you. You do not have to register with Jonaize before we can collect this anonymous information.
Personally identifiable information refers to data that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name and email address, which may be collected in addition to the anonymous data described above. Jonaize collects personal information in the following ways:
- - Correspondence: If you contact Jonaize through the quotation form or the contact form, we may keep a record of that correspondence. We DO NOT collect and harvest the email addresses of those who communicate with Jonaize via email. We use the information provided so that we may respond to that email.
- - Surveys: From time-to-time, Jonaize may request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and email). Anonymous Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
2. What organisation is collecting the information?
When you use a service within Jonaize, that information is collected and maintained solely by Jonaize unless specifically stated otherwise at the point of collection. If data is collected and/or maintained by any organisation other than Jonaize, we will make that clear to you at the point of collection. If you do not wish to share your information with that organisation, you can choose not to use that service.
3. What are "cookies" and how does Jonaize use them?
In addition to the personally identifiable information that Jonaize actively collects when you use a service, we also collect anonymous information passively using cookies. This technology plays an important role in making the Internet work, but there is much confusion among Internet users about what cookies are and how they are used.
A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a Web site to the hard drive of your computer so that the site administrator may identify your computer and passively track its activities on the site. This unique number identifies your Web browser to our computer system whenever you visit a page hosted by Jonaize. A cookie will not allow a Web site to learn any personally identifiable information (such as your real name and address) that you have not otherwise disclosed.
- Measure statistics such as audience size and traffic patterns. This information is only collected in aggregate form and will not be linked to your personally identifiable information.
- For the login of clients into C3 and/or any online services offered.
Without cookies, it would be difficult for Jonaize to know which services have a larger audience than others. Tracking audience size helps us to better understand when to launch new services and enhance the current ones.
4. How does Jonaize use the information it collects?
Any personally identifiable information you share with Jonaize is maintained and accessible only by us unless specifically stated otherwise. All of the online Services (such as the free quotation and online contact form) are available to you at no cost.
5. With whom do Jonaize share the information that is collected?
By providing Jonaize with information, you authorize Jonaize to internally share that information within ourselves.
Jonaize is authorized to share your personally identifiable information with Jonathan Samraj for the following purposes: to manage, administer, provide, expand and improve the existing services and to offer services; to adapt such services to your tastes and preferences; to send service updates to Jonaize users; to send, by traditional and/or electronic means, technical and operational information relating to the services offered by Jonaize or through any of the sites operated by Jonaize under The Jonaize Network, currently and in the future; and to send you survey forms (if you allow us to do so), which you are not required to fill in. Of course, Jonaize will always give you the option to opt out of receiving any information or notices as described above, other than legal notices and other notices that are necessary to the functioning of the Service(s), during the time that you are using the Services or maintain an active registration with Jonaize. In any event, Jonaize will take precautions to maintain the confidentiality and security of all user information.
Jonaize will NOT disclose information about individual users to third parties whatsoever. However, Jonaize will disclose information about individual users to governmental or judicial authorities or law enforcement agencies, or to other individuals or entities in response to subpoena, court order, or other legal process. In matters involving a danger or risk to personal or public safety, Jonaize may voluntarily provide information to appropriate governmental authorities.
6. What you can do to better protect yourself on the Internet?
Know the risks.
Meeting new people in an online community (chat room, forum, newsgroup, message board, Web page, etc.) is one of the best things about the Internet, but you should always be careful about disclosing personal information such as an actual name, member name(username, email address, and so on. This information may be collected and used by others within the online community to send unsolicited email messages from other parties, outside Jonaize. Some of the messages you receive may be useful to you, but some may not.
Never talk to strangers
Children should not reveal their names or other personal information to anyone they encounter on the Internet. They should also be instructed not to fill out any forms or register at any Web site without parental knowledge and consent. Parents can also prevent or limit a child's access to inappropriate material on the Web by using commercially available parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software, or filtering services).
