Waiver and Severability

For purposes of clarification, any information which cannot be used to identify a discrete individual (such as aggregated statistical information) is not Personal Information.
PURPOSE FOR COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
The Jina Parties collect, use and disclose your Personal Information in its normal course of business for the following general purposes:
Jina Parties may otherwise collect, use, and disclose your Personal Information in accordance with this Policy.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT/GENERATE
The information gathered and/or generated by the Jina Parties about you falls into four categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by you when you visit or use the functionality of a Site; (2) information generated by a Jina Party about you; and (3) tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through the Sites.
Information voluntarily provided by you
When using the Sites or working with a Jina Party, you may choose to provide a Jina Party with information to help one or more Jina Parties serve your needs. The Personal Information that we collect will depend on how you choose to use the Sites; and what Personal Information you share with a Jina Party outside of the Sites.
If you request information from a Jina Party, we require you to submit your name, e-mail address, the name of your organization, and any other necessary contact information so we may authenticate you later, as well as enable us to identify if you are an existing customer of a Jina Party.
We may also request other Personal Information as is reasonably necessary so that we can provide you with the requested information or service. On the data submission form, we will indicate by way of an asterisk, which information is optional and which information is mandatory. This information can include:
Any Personal Information that you send us will be used for the purpose indicated on the applicable Site or in this Policy.
Website Navigational Information
As you navigate a Site, we may also collect information through the use of commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and web beacons (collectively “Website Navigational Information”). Website Navigational Information includes standard information from your web browser (such as browser type and browser language), your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, and the actions you take on a Site (such as the web pages viewed and the links clicked).
Session cookies: These are only stored on your computer during your web session. They are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. They usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page. They do not collect any information from your computer.
Persistent cookies: A persistent cookie is one stored as a file on your computer, and it remains there when you close your web browser. The cookie can be read by the website that created it when you visit that website again.
First-party cookies: The function of this type of cookie is to retain your preferences for a particular website for the entity that owns that website. They are stored and sent between a Jina Party’s servers and your computer’s hard drive. They are not used for anything other than for personalization as set by you. These cookies may be either Session or Persistent cookies.
Third-party cookies: The function of this type of cookie is to retain your interaction with a particular website for an entity that does not own that website. They are stored and sent between the third-party’s server and your computer’s hard drive. These cookies are usually Persistent cookies.
The major browsers have attempted to implement the draft “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (“W3C”) in their latest releases. As this standard has not been finalized, the Sites are not compatible with DNT.
For information on all of these categories of cookies, and for more information generally on cookies please refer to www.aboutcookies.org.
We use generally cookies as follows:
These cookies allow our Sites to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced features. For instance, a Site may be able to remember your log in details, so that you do not have to repeatedly sign in to your account when using a particular device to access our Sites. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, font and other parts of web pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as viewing a video or commenting on an article. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymized. They do not gather any information about you that could be used for advertising or remember where you have been on the internet.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a Site, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. They also allow us to record and count the number of visitors to a Site, all of which enables us to see how visitors use a Site in order to improve the way that the Site works. The information these cookies collect is normally anonymous and is used to improve how our Sites works. However, some of these cookies may include Personal Information.
Please consult your web browser's ‘Help’ documentation or visit www.aboutcookies.org. for more information about how to turn cookies on and off for your browser.
When you visit our Sites, we collect your Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses to track and aggregate some Personal Information. For example, we use IP addresses to monitor the regions from which users navigate the Sites.
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION TO OTHERS
Third parties to whom we generally disclose information are required by law or a contract with us, to keep your Personal Information confidential and secure, and to use and disclose it for purposes that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances and generally for purposes as follows:
In the normal course of performing services for our clients, Personal Information may be shared among Jina Parties for research and statistical purposes, system administration, joint marketing, providing you services or information, and crime prevention or detection.
Because a number of the service providers we use are located in the United States, your Personal Information may be processed and stored inside the United States, and the U.S. government, courts, or law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your Personal Information under US laws.
In addition, generally, we will only provide your Personal Information to our lawyers, accountants, tax consultants and employees for the purpose of conducting our business and providing you with information. Our service suppliers adhere to the same protections regarding the collection, use, and retention of data as we do.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy assets. In such transactions, user information, including Personal Information, generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, if a Jina Party itself or substantially all of a Jina Party’s assets were acquired, your Personal Information may be one of the transferred assets. Therefore, we may disclose and/or transfer your Personal Information to a third party purchaser in these circumstances.
Other Legally Required Disclosures
The Jina Parties reserve the right to disclose, without your prior permission, any Personal Information about you or your use of a Site if the Jina Party has a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) protect and defend the rights, property or safety of a Jina Party, a Jina Party’s employees, other users of a Site, or the public; (b) enforce the terms and conditions that apply to use of a Site; (c) as required by a legally valid request from a competent governmental authority; or (d) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third-parties. We may also disclose Personal Information as we deem necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request.
STATE PRIVACY RIGHTS
Residents of some states in the US have certain rights, under the specific state law, as it relates to how their Personal Information is handled. These are the “right to know,” the “right to delete,” and the “right to opt-out.”
Right to Know. You may request us to provide you the specific pieces of Personal Information that we have about you, categories of Personal Information we have collected about you, categories of sources from which the Personal Information is collected, categories of Personal Information that we sold or disclosed for a business purpose about you, categories of third parties to whom the Personal Information was sold or disclosed for a business purpose, and Jina’s business or commercial purpose for collecting Personal Information. Please note that much of the information for which you can make a request is already contained in this Policy. Should you wish to exercise this right, please contact us via one of the methods noted below under “Exercising State Privacy Rights.” If you do not have an account with us, we may ask for some Personal Information in order to verify your identity and your rights to the data subject to your request.
Right to Delete. Some state law gives its residents a limited right to request deletion of their Personal Information. However, this right is limited by a number of exceptions. Fundamentally, if we have a permissible need to retain Personal Information, we are not under an obligation to delete such information, even when requested. Generally, we retain Personal Information so we may complete the transaction for which the Personal Information was collected, provide information or a service requested by you, or reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform a contract between us and you; detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; or prosecute those responsible for that activity; debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality of our online properties; enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with us; comply with a legal obligation; or otherwise use your Personal Information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which your provided the information. As such, we generally do not accept requests to delete Personal Information. However, we will respond to requests to remove Personal Information from some of our systems as a part of a request to close or otherwise disable an account. If you would like to request deletion of Personal Information, please contact us via one of the methods noted below under “Exercising State Privacy Rights.” If you do not have an account with us, we may ask for some Personal Information in order to verify your identity and your rights to the data subject to your request.
Right to Opt-Out. We do not sell your Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties. As such, there is no need for you to opt-out of the sale of information to such parties.
Designating an Authorized Agent. Some state law permits residents of that state to designate an agent to manage their rights under state law. If you would like to designate an agent to manage your privacy preferences, you may do so using the mechanisms noted below under “Exercising State Privacy Rights.” Note that if you do not have an account with us, we may ask for some Personal Information in order to verify your identity and your rights to the data subject to your request. We will also need sufficient Personal Information about your authorized agent to be able to identify them. As part of this process, you must have permission from your authorized agent to disclose their Personal Information to us for the purpose of acting as your agent.
Non-discrimination. Some state law prohibits discrimination against you because you exercised any your rights under state law, including, but not limited to, by: denying you access to goods or services; charging different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties; providing a different level or quality of goods or services; or suggesting that you will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
Exercising State Privacy Rights. If you are a resident in a state which provides separate privacy rights, and would like to exercise any of your rights, you may do so by contacting us at [EMAIL ADDRESS], on our “Opt-Out” page, or via toll-free number [TOLL FREE NUMBER]. Please be aware that we will need to have sufficient information to be able to verify your identity and the rights you have in the data subject to your request.
We have in place reasonable safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information we maintain. Safeguards will vary depending on the sensitivity, format, location, amount, distribution and storage of the Personal Information. They include physical, technical and managerial measures to keep Personal Information protected from unauthorized access. Note that due to the nature of the Internet and related technology, we cannot absolutely guarantee the security of Personal Information disclosed over the Internet, and the Jina Parties expressly disclaim any such obligation.
Our knowing about changes to some of your Personal Information (e.g. email address) may be key to effectively communicating with you at your request. If any of your details change you can update us by e-mailing us at [EMAIL ADDRESS]. Please keep us informed of changes to your Personal Information.
If you have any questions or concerns about how your Personal Information is handled by the Jina Parties, please let us know by sending an email at [EMAIL ADDRESS] or writing to us at:
[ENTITY LEGAL NAME]
If there is any material change to your rights under this Policy, Jina will provide you with notice of such change 30 calendar days prior to the changes going into effect. As part of this notice, Jina may post a notice of the change on a Site in a clear and conspicuous manner for the 30 calendar day notice period. Jina may also communicate the change via email or postal mail if this is the way that Jina normally corresponds with you. Please note that your continued use of a Site once this 30 calendar day period are over indicates your agreement to the changes which were the subject of the notice.
The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most comprehensive EU data privacy law in decades, going into effect on May 25, 2018. Besides strengthening and standardizing user data privacy across the EU nations, it will require new or additional obligations on all organizations that handle EU citizens’ personal data, regardless of where the organizations themselves are located.
Jina is fully committed to complying with the (GDPR).
When your customers interact with Jina on your digital properties, they expect their data to remain secure, and not to be shared with non-desired third parties. We only collect and store information that is necessary to offer our service, and we do this with the consent of our customers. Adding to this, our approach towards privacy, security, and data protection aligns with the goals of GDPR.
Along with a highly secure and robust system architecture, we have in place a variety of security measures that prevent unauthorized access and processing of personal data. To know more about our technical and organizational security measures as a paying client, please check out Terms of Service for our Security Policy.
