Information We Collect
You may visit our Site without providing any information that identifies you personally (“Personally Identifying Information”). However, if you wish to receive communications from us, such as a weekly digest of content, alerts or mobile alerts, you will need to register for the given Site by providing us with certain Personally Identifying Information. You may also choose to provide us with Personally Identifying Information in any communications you send us. The types of Personally Identifying Information that we may collect about you include: name, age, gender, income level, religious affiliation, marital status, address, corporate alliance, email address, telephone number, fax number and information about your interests in and use of our products. You are not legally required to provide us with Personally Identifying Information, but if you choose not to do so, you may not be able to use certain aspects of the Site or Services.
We offer you opportunities to engage in public activities through our Site and Services. “Public activities” are any actions you take that are designed to be visible to other users, including comments, recommendations, reviews, ratings or any other items that you submit to a Site. We may also, at our sole discretion, permit you to start a blog, post events or open an organization page on a Site. Any information you disclose in your public activities, along with your screen name or ID, or any image or photo, becomes public and may be used for online and offline promotional or commercial uses in any and all media. If you choose to engage in public activities, you should be aware that any personal information you submit there can be read, collected or used by other users of these areas, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the Personally Identifying Information you choose to submit in these areas and we have no responsibility to publish, take down, remove or edit any of your public activities or any of your submissions that are a result of your public activities. By choosing to participate in public activities, you are electing to share and display such public activities via the Site.
When you share or recommend (with or without adding your own comments) any Site’s content to your social media profile, that action is governed by the social media platform’s Data Policy. We do not track or store a record of those comments or actions.
If you have registered for a Pomi.org account, we may track and aggregate your public activities onPomi.com, as appropriate. If we collect this information, we will use it in connection with our operation of the Site and Services.
We may collect information regarding your activity on the Site, such as your browsing history and amount of time engaged with the content. We also may collect certain non-personally identifying information when you visit many of our web pages, such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using and access times.
The Site may look up precise information about your location via your browser, but only with your consent. This information is not stored by us and is used solely for the purpose of location-based searching. We also may collect your IP address or information about the mobile device or other device you use to access the Services, such as geo-location information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language or other information. Information that we collect that does not personally identify you is referred to herein as “Non-Personal Information.”
How We Use Information
We will not share Personally Identifying Information provided to us with third parties without your explicit permission, except as set forth herein or as we believe in good faith is required by law, regulation, subpoena or court order, or to cooperate with any investigation carried out by a law-enforcement agency.
We and our affiliates will use Personally Identifying Information for the purpose for which you submitted it to us, such as to respond to your inquiry, to send you information about us and about our products and Services, to fulfill a request by you for written materials (such as a weekly digest, email news alert or SMS news alert) or to carry out transactions which you have requested. If you no longer wish to receive a specific digest or alert, you can notify us via the contact page on Pomi.org page.
We may use the information you provide to provide you with customized reading recommendations or targeted advertising on our Site or our mobile applications. We may use information about your device in order to personalize your experience toward the specific device you are using or to send specific advertising. We may use location information to provide you with information-specific content or advertising.
In addition, we may provide you with the opportunity (on an opt-in basis) to receive promotional emails, which include content provided by our partners or advertisers that we think may be of interest to you. Such partners and advertisers will not be able to access any of your Personally Identifying Information. We will not send unsolicited messages to you if you indicate that you do not wish to receive such messages. In addition, you may remove yourself from any or all of the electronic newsletters’ mailing lists at any time by following instructions for unsubscribing found at the end of every email.
Other Uses of Your Information
We may disclose Personally Identifying Information in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. In addition, we will fully cooperate with any law-enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity, behavior or digital content of any user suspected to have engaged in illegal, infringing or offensive behavior on the Site.
We may exchange information with third parties (including, but not limited to, merchants) for the purposes of fraud protection.
We may transfer our databases containing your personal information if we sell our business or part of it, or merge or partner with other companies and businesses.
We or our affiliates may hire other companies to provide Services on our behalf. These companies will have access to only the personal information they need in order to provide such Services, and will be obligated to maintain the confidentiality of the information and will be prohibited from using it for other purposes. Personally Identifying Information may be stored and processed in the United States or in any other country in which CJP or its affiliates or service providers maintain facilities. Some countries may not have adequate data protection laws or may offer differing levels of protection of personal information that are not as high as in your country of residence or business. By using our Site, you consent to such transfer of information outside your country.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Most web browsers are initially configured to accept cookies, but you can change this setting so your browser either refuses all cookies or informs you when a cookie is being sent. Also, you are free to delete any existing cookies at any time. Please note that some features of Pomi.org may not function properly when cookies are disabled or removed.
Our Commitment to Security
We have put in place physical and electronic procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use the information we collect online. However, no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100 percent secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personally Identifying Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that Personally Identifying Information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Policy. Regardless of the precautions taken by you or by us, “perfect security” does not exist on the internet. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk.
