This document contains the privacy practices for the website of Jamaica Land We Love (“Jalawelo”) and Jalawelo's other web sites (collectively, the "Sites"). These Sites are owned and operated by or on behalf of Jamaica Land We Love. We at Jalawelo take your privacy seriously. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you about the information that is collected about you on the Sites, how Jalawelo may use and disclose the information that is collected, how information can be corrected or changed, and your obligations regarding information about others you may encounter in using the Sites.

1. How Does Jalawelo Collect Information? 
Our web server automatically recognizes and collects the domain name and IP address of visitors to our Sites. In addition, we collect information volunteered by the visitor to participate in activities on the Sites, such as making a donation to help fund a project, posting comments and making other contributions to discussions about projects, responding to surveys, registering to create an account, filling out online applications, requesting email newsletters and/or contacting us through one or more of our contact email addresses. Jalawelo also collects personal information when you create an account. When you create an account we ask for information such as your name, email address, postal address, and phone number. If a visitor has enabled cookies in their browser, we also will send a cookie file that will only store a unique, random session ID that is maintained throughout the session to track the pages visited, allowing us to provide visitors to our Sites with certain conveniences, such as delivering unique content. We also use cookies to track the path of users through our Sites, and to keep track of where they came from (for example, if they arrive via a search engine). We also collect aggregate tracking information derived mainly from tallying page views throughout our Sites.

Jalawelo uses reasonable efforts to protect personal information received from users of our Sites from unauthorized use or disclosure. We do not allow unauthorized access via the Internet to the portion of our server that contains personally identifiable user information. All credit card information provided as requested on the Sites for donations is encrypted using the SSL protocol and we do not retain any end-user credit card information after the processing of the transaction is complete.

3. How Does Jalawelo Use Information? 
Jalawelo uses information for the following purposes: 

3.1 General.
Jalawelo uses information to evaluate applications and proposed projects submitted by nonprofit organizations (“Sponsoring Organizations”) seeking funding for such projects, to provide information regarding approved proposals to the Sites' visitors and potential donors, to customize the content and/or layout of the Sites for each individual user, to improve the content of our Sites, our services or programs, and to contact you. 

3.2 Contacting You.
By creating an account on a Site, you agree to receive emails based on transactional activity, which may include confirmation emails, receipts, acknowledgment messages, updates on proposals you've funded, or updates on Sponsoring Organization feedback.

By voluntarily providing us with your name, credit card information, e-mail address, postal address, telephone number, billing address, and any other personally identifiable information, you consent to our use of such information for the purpose(s) for which it was collected, such as processing your donations and/or for providing any other service or product you request. 

3.4 Aggregate Data.
Jalawelo may collect information about the use of the Sites, such as the types of services used and how many users we receive daily. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually. Jalawelo may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing or similar promotional purposes. This may include disclosure of this information to a third party market analysis firm.

Note: Any personal information or content that you publicly disclose in public areas of the Sites become publicly available and can be collected and used by other users. For this reason, you should be careful before you disclose personal information in such public areas.

4.2 Business Transition. 
If Jalawelo goes through an organizational transition, such as a merger or sale of all or a portion of its assets, we reserve the right to transfer your personal information, which will likely be among the assets transferred. 

4.3 Contractors and Other Third Party Service Providers. 
Jalawelo may employ contractors or other third parties.
