OKJ Discoveries Privacy Policy

Updated as of February 2015

Your privacy is important to me and I have prepared this Pirvacy Policy to explain to you how I collect, use, and share information I obtain through your use of OKJ Discoveries. This Privacy Policy does not govern our use of any information you provide to me when you call me, write to me, or communicate with me in any manner other than through www.okjdiscoveries.com (also referred to as "this site"). Because the Internet is global, information about you that we collect or that you submit may be transferred to, processed in, and held in countries (including Singapore) other than the one in which you reside. By using the Services, you explicitly consent to such use of your information and agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

 

  • Information The Site Automatically Collect.

This site, powered by Squarespace, automatically collect certain information to help understand how users OKJ Discoveries use the Services (which we will refer to in this Privacy Policy collectively as “Usage Data”). For example, each time you visit the Services we may automatically collect your IP address, browser and computer type, access time, the Web page you came from, the URL you go to next, and the Web page(s) that you access during your visit.

I will use such Usage Data to diagnose problems with our servers and software, to administer the Services, and to gather demographic information. Any third-party applications that I use will also provide me reports that will tell me user behaviour such as page visits and ads clicked in a manner that does not identify personally any individual.

  • Information Sharing Practices

(a) Generally. Except as otherwise described in this section of ,yPrivacy Policy, I will never share your Usage Data, Personal Information, Non-Personal Information, or Shared Information (which I will refer to in this Privacy Policy collectively as “User Information”) with any third party without your permission.

(b) Advertisers. From time to time, I may share your Usage Data and Non-Personal Information to enable third parties who serve advertisements on the Services to deliver advertisements that will be relevant to you. I will not share any such information, however, in a manner that would enable the advertiser to personally identify you.

(c) Aggregated Data. From time to time, I may share aggregated User Information with third parties. I will not share any aggregated data, however, in manner that would enable the recipient to personally identify you.

(d) Service Providers. From time to time, I may enter into relationships with third parties who provide services to me (e.g., data management and storage services or credit card processing services). In those circumstances, I disclose User Information that is necessary for such service providers to perform those services and require that they maintain the confidentiality of such User Information.

(e) Other Disclosure Scenarios. Notwithstanding anything in this Privacy Policy to the contrary, I reserve the right, and you hereby expressly authorize me, to share any User Information: (1) in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; (2) if I believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, fraud, or situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person or property; (3) if I believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding significant abuse of the Services’ infrastructure or the Internet in general (such as voluminous spamming, denial of service attacks, or attempts to compromise the security of information);

  • Cookies

We may set and access cookies on your computer. Upon your first visit to the Services, a cookie is sent to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. A "cookie" is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer and stored on your hard drive when you visit a website. Many major Web services use cookies to provide useful features for their users. Each web site can send its own cookie to your browser. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies.

I use cookies for the following general purposes: (a) to track your preferences, such as the address or local zip code you enter; (b) to display the most appropriate advertisements, based on your interests and activity on our Services; and (c) to help me improve the Services by analyzing and estimating our traffic and use of features on the Services.

I may also use "pixel tags," which are small graphic files that allow me to monitor the use of the Services. A pixel tag can collect information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the tag appears; the URL of the page on which the pixel tag appears; the time (and length of time) the page containing the pixel tag was viewed; the type of browser that retrieved the pixel tag; and the identification number of any cookie previously placed by that server on your computer.

I may use pixel tags, either provided by us or by our third party advertisers and ad networks, to collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with our sites and Services and use them in combination with our cookies to provide offers and information of interest to you.

I also may allow certain analytic services and providers of applications used on the Services (e.g., sharing buttons) to collect Non-Personally Identifiable information by placing cookies on the Services that will track the performance of my site, such as, web traffic, click-throughs, etc., in order to assist me and ,y service providers in better understanding the interests of our users and to better serve those interests.

  • Advertising.

I may use other companies under agreements with me to serve advertisements when you visit and use the Services. These companies may collect and use click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over during your visits to the Services and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie, a third party web beacon and/or pixel tags to collect this information. None of them collect any personal information from your computer, such as your e-mail address. Other companies' use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to our cookies.

  • Links

The Services may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any such other website and urge you to review such practices prior to submitting any information to such websites.

  • Changes

I may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. If under any such update I make any material change to the way in which I treat your User Information, I will inform you of such change via email or by posting a notice on relevant areas of the Services. Any updated version of this Privacy Policy will be effective as of the date set forth therein.
