This policy is written by Journal Post Inc. for all users of its website, app, and any other services. Wherever this policy mentions Journal Post or ‘We’, it refers to Journal Post Inc. and all of its services. When it mentions ‘You’, ‘User(s)’ or ‘Viewer(s)’, it refers to any and everyone making use of our services.

  1. How We Use Your Data

Journal Post ensures that all collected data is used only for purposes made clear in this privacy policy. If the data is used for any other purposes, users will be notified of the purpose as well as the legal grounds necessitating the usage. We generally use the obtained data, including both directly identifying and indirectly identifying information, to understand who our users and visitors are, how they use our services, and what they prefer with regards to our services. This is then used to improve user experience of our services. The following are specific ways Journal Post uses your personal and log data:

 

  1. Who We Share Data With

Your data, both direct and indirect, is secure with Journal Post. All information shared is specified in this section. Unless otherwise stated, no other information is shared or distributed in any manner. Generally, only indirect data is shared with third-parties, unless otherwise specified in this section. Direct data is not shared, and will not be shared unless the circumstances are exceptional and explicit content is obtained.

  1. International Transfer of EU Data

Data processing and usage may require for the information of EU users – defined as those residing in the European Economic Area (EEA) – to be transferred and processed internationally. Third parties that data is shared with may also be based outside the EEA. Whenever this transfer takes place, Journal post ensures data is protected as consistently and wholly as it is within the EEA. We ensure our third parties follow our protection standards, and value your information and legal rights as much as we do.

  1. Cookie Policy

Journal Post collects user activity information through small data text files known as ‘cookies’. These files are stored from websites your visit on your computer’s hard drive, and are then transmitted back whenever you visit these websites again. This helps a website identify you as a unique returning user. Journal Post stores and uses cookies in order to understand your usage of our site, and to provide you with content better suited to your preferences.

You may disable cookies through your browser or external tools and add-ons. However, disabling cookies means you may not be able to access all of our features, products, and services. We suggest you keep cookies active, since these are used entirely to enhance user experience. Following are the types of cookies, and other similar web technologies, used by Journal Post.
