Introduction

The privacy of the information you provide on this website is important to us. JV Consultants Limited (“JV” or “Jetvory” or “we”) is dedicated to protecting the confidentiality and privacy of information entrusted to it. As part of this fundamental obligation, JV is committed to the appropriate protection and use of personal information that has been collected online.

 

Generally, our intent is to collect only the personal information that is provided voluntarily by online visitors so that we can offer information and/ or services to those individuals. By using this website and submitting personal data, a visitor to our website is agreeing to JV’s use of such data as described in this Privacy statement. We have created this Privacy Statement to govern our commitment to protecting the privacy of your information. Please review this Privacy Statement to learn more about how we collect, use, share and protect the personal information that we have obtained.

 

Data collection

“Personal data” means information about you and/ or third parties you represent. When you visit this website and in the course of providing services to you/ your organization/ your employer, we may collect personal data either: directorly where you are asked to provide data (if applicable) e.g. when you use any “DIY Set up document” or “Registration” features of the website (e.g. name, email address and mailing address); or information we receive with your authorization from third parties; or indirectly, such as using cookies (as described below) or to track your use of certain pages of the websites (e.g. your internet protocol address) and other technical means to monitor your use of the website, or from third parties who provide us with information about you.

 

We will only collect, hold, use, communicate and/ or disclose such personal data, in accordance with this Privacy Statement. In some cases, where you have registered for certain services we may store your email address temporarily until we receive confirmation of the information you provided via an email (i.e. where we send an email to the email address provided as part of your registration)

 

JV generally collects only the personal information necessary to fulfill your request. Where additional, optional information is sought, you will be notified of this at the point of collection.

 

JV only collects "sensitive" personal information when the relevant individuals voluntarily provide us with this information or where such information is required or permitted to be collected by law or professional standards. Sensitive information includes personal information regarding a person's race, ethnicity, political beliefs, trade union membership, religious or similar beliefs, physical or mental health, sexual life or criminal record. Please use your discretion when providing sensitive information to JV, and under any circumstances,  do not provide sensitive information to JV, unless you thereby consent to JV's use of that information for its legitimate business purposes and consent to the transfer and storage of such information to and in JV databases. If you have any questions about whether the provision of sensitive information to JV is, or may be, necessary or appropriate for particular purposes, please contact JV at info@jvchk.com.

 

Automatic collection of data

In some instances, JV and its service providers uses cookies, web beacons and other technologies to automatically collect certain types of information when you visit us online, as well as through emails that we may exchange. The collection of this information allows us to customize your online experience, improve the performance, usability and effectiveness of JV's online presence, and to measure the effectiveness of our marketing activities.

 

IP addresses

An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the internet. It allows computers and servers to recognise and communicate with one another. IP addresses from which visitors appear to originate may be recorded for IT security and system diagnostic purposes. This information may also be used in aggregate form to conduct web site trend and performance analysis.

 

Cookies and log files

Cookies may be used on some areas of our website.  A cookie is a small software application which allows a website to recognise a previous user and to observe how a user navigates within a website.  Cookies are now used as a standard by many websites to improve users' navigational experience.  If you are concerned about cookies, most browsers permit individuals to decline cookies. In most cases, a visitor may refuse a cookie and still fully navigate our websites, however other functionality in the site may be impaired.  After termination of the visit to our site, you can always delete the cookie from your system if you wish.
    
In order to properly manage our website and related email services, we may anonymously log information on our operating systems about the number and duration of visits to the website and identify categories of visitors by items such as domains and browser types, and to track document identification number by way of email acknowledgement or return receipt.  These statistics are reported in the aggregate to our webmaster and system administrators.  In addition, site statistics are compiled by third parties, and therefore your IP address will be passed to third parties for statistical reporting only.  This is to ensure that our website presents the best web experience for visitors and is an effective information resource.
 
Whenever a registered member visits this website, they must identify themselves in order to gain entry.  This data is logged by JV primarily to measure website performance and in assisting to resolve any website technical difficulties.

 

Use of data

Information submitted on this website is used only for the intended purpose stated at the time that the information is collected.  Examples of the types of use are given in the "Data Collection" and “Automatic collection of data” sections above.
    
Where we have obtained your consent we may also send you communications from time to time, for example to advise you of information, technical updates, upcoming events/seminars, or surveys which may be of interest to you.

JV will not use personal data collected from our website to facilitate unsolicited marketing activities.

 

Disclosure of data to third parties

Information will not be disclosed to third parties except when required by law, when we have your explicit consent where requesting such consent is permitted or in cases where we have engaged the third party specifically to assist with our firm's activities.  Any such third parties whom we engage will be bound contractually to keep all information confidential.

 

Data retention

Information that is kept by us will be destroyed or permanently de-identified after a reasonable period from the time when it becomes outdated or is no longer required.  We may however, retain copies of such information for internal record keeping purposes and for compliance with applicable law or professional standards.

Location-based tools

JV may collect and use the geographical location of your computer or mobile device. This location data is collected for the purpose of providing you with information regarding services which we believe may be of interest to you based on your geographic location, and to improve our location-based products and services.

 

Social Media

JV websites may include functionality to enable sharing via third party social media applications, such as the Facebook and Twitter widget. These social media applications may collect and use information regarding your use of JV web sites. Any personal information that you provide via such social media applications may be collected and used by other members of that social media application and such interactions are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide the application. We do not have control over, or responsibility for, those companies or their use of your information.

In addition, JV web sites may host blogs, forums, crowd-sourcing and other applications or services (collectively "social media features"). The purpose of social media features is to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and content. Any personal information that you provide on any JV social media feature may be shared with other users of that social media feature (unless otherwise stated at the point of collection), over whom we may have limited or no control.

Children

JV understands the importance of protecting children's privacy, especially in an online environment. In particular, our sites are not intentionally designed for or directed at children under the age of 13. It is our policy never to knowingly collect or maintain information about anyone under the age of 13, except as part of an engagement to provide professional services.

 

Access your information

To access your personal data that you have submitted on a request or registration through our website, please send your request to us.
   
When personal data is retained, JV assumes responsibility for keeping a record of the information once a visitor has submitted the data.  JV does not assume responsibility for verifying the ongoing accuracy of the content of personal data.  When practically possible, if JV is informed that any personal data collected through a website is no longer accurate, JV will make appropriate corrections based on the updated information provided by the authenticated visitor.

 

Correction and concerns

To update your contact details (e.g. email, company, title/role, address, phone number), please send your request to us.  If you believe that information we hold about you is incorrect, if you have concerns about how we are handling your personal data, or if you change your mind about our usage of your data, please inform us and we will try to resolve those concerns.

 

Data security and integrity

The information submitted is stored in either email boxes or databases.  JV has implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect personal data from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction.  All JV staff follow a firm wide security policy.  Only authorised JV personnel are provided access to personal data and they have agreed to ensure confidentiality of this information.  This policy is also required for any fulfilment agents of our firm.

 

Sharing and Transfer data

We do not share personal information with unaffiliated third parties, except as necessary for our legitimate professional and business needs, to carry out your requests, and/or as required or permitted by law or professional standards.

In some instances, JV may share personal information about you with various outside companies or service providers or vendors working on our behalf to help fulfill your requests.

In addition, JV may transfer certain personal information across geographical borders to other JV member firms or outside companies working with us or on our behalf. JV may also store personal information in a jurisdiction other than where you are based. By providing personal information on online, visitors are consenting to this transfer and/or storage of their personal information across borders.

JV may also disclose personal information in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of the site to which the data relates, in order to respond to requests of government or law enforcement agencies or where this is required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations. These disclosures may also be needed for data privacy or security audits and/or to investigate or respond to a complaint or security threat. JV does not sell personal information to any third parties. Also, JV will not transfer the personal information you provide to any third parties for their own direct marketing use.

Personal data collected by JV may be disclosed to other member firms in the JV network of firms, where it is necessary (i) to meet the purpose for which the visitor has submitted the information; or (ii) to enable the visitor to be provided with information at a later date which may be of relevance and interest to the visitor based on the nature and purpose of their voluntary requests.  By submitting personal data on JV' website, the visitor is providing explicit consent to trans-border transmission of such data collected on the website for the fulfilment of his/her voluntary requests.

 

Links to third party sites

Because JV wants your website experience to be as informative and resourceful as possible, we may provide a number of links to third party websites.  JV assumes no responsibility for the information practices of these third party websites that a user is able to access through ours.  When you link to these websites, JV’s privacy practices no longer apply.  We encourage visitors to review each website's privacy policy before disclosing any personal data.
