Privacy Policy

Welcome to the website of Jonaize Solutions (henceforth referred to as 'Jonaize'). All online Services on this site are made available subject to this Privacy Policy. By using our Services, you agree, without limitation or qualification, to be bound by this Privacy Policy or any other privacy or data collection policy applicable to Jonaize and to receive any required legal notices regarding our privacy practices through the continuous posting of a clear and conspicuous link to the current version of this Privacy Policy throughout the Jonaize site near the bottom of most pages. If you become an inactive user, we will adhere to the policies and practices as described in this Privacy Policy, which may be revised from time to time.

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:

  1. - 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.
  2. - 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.

Jonaize will not use or disclose such content except as described in this Privacy Policy.

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.

Be aware that Jonaize clients / advertisers have links on the site that take you to external sites. Some of these sites may collect personally identifiable information from you. While Jonaize hopes that all third parties involved adhere to our policies regarding the privacy of our users, our Privacy Policy does not cover third-party data collection practices and Jonaize does not assume any responsibility for any actions of third parties.

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.

Jonaize generally uses cookies to
- 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.

The use of cookies is an industry standard, and they are currently used on most major Web sites. It is possible to adjust your Web browser preferences to alert you when a cookie is sent to your hard drive, or to refuse cookies altogether. While Jonaize does not require you to use cookies, keep in mind that certain client services will not function properly if you set your browser to refuse all cookies.

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.

Educate yourself
Search the Web for as much information as you can about how to protect your privacy. Look for a privacy policy on the Web sites you visit. A good place to start is TRUSTe -- an independent, non-profit organization with a mission to build trust and confidence in the Internet. The Federal Trade Commission has a great Web site with useful information on being a Savvy Internet Traveler along with other privacy initiatives.

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).

7. Updates

Jonaize will update this policy from time to time so please check back periodically. When such changes occur, you will see the word "Updated" next to the Privacy Policy link on the footer of each site on Jonaize. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will prominently post such changes at least a month prior to implementing them.
