Information from cookies & other technologies: A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Our website uses cookies and other technologies to help us identify and track visitors, usage, and access preferences in our website.

Information We Collect from Other Sources

We may also get information about you from other sources. Such as, if you purchase  our courses, we’ll receive information relating to your payment account, such as your email address, payment information, and phone number. The information we receive depends on which services you use or authorize and what options are available.

Use of Information

We use information about you for the purposes listed below:

To provide our Services. This includes providing customer service, processing payments, assessing applications, notifying updates, contacting you, and providing services.

To ensure quality, maintain safety, and improve our Services. For example, by providing automatic upgrades and new versions of our services. Or, for example, by monitoring and analyzing how users interact with our services so we can improve features to make our Services easier to use.

To protect our Services, our users, and the public. Such as detecting security incidents; detecting and protecting against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; fighting spam; complying with our legal obligations; and protecting our rights and property, which may result in us, for example, declining a transaction or terminating services.

To fix problems with our Services. Such as monitoring, debugging, repairing, and preventing issues.

To customize the user experience. For example, to personalize your experience by serving you relevant notifications for our Services, recommending content through our posts.

To communicate with you. For example, by emailing you to ask for your feedback, or keep you up to date about our programs; contacting you to verify your payment; or providing customer support. If you don’t want to hear from us, you can opt out of marketing communications at any time. (If you opt out, we’ll still send you important updates relating to your account.)

Sharing Information

How We Share Information

We do not sell our users’ data and information. We share information about you in limited circumstances, and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy. These are spelled out below:

Subsidiaries and independent contractors: We may disclose information about you to our subsidiaries and independent contractors who need the information to help us provide our services or process the information on our behalf. We require our subsidiaries and independent contractors to follow this Privacy Policy for any personal information that we share with them.

Third-party vendors: We may share information about you with third-party vendors who need the information in order to provide their services to us, or to provide their services to you or your site. This includes vendors that help us provide our services to you like our payment processor provider, which process your credit and debit card information, bank information and others that you choose to share with us. We also might share information for fraud prevention services that allow us to analyze fraudulent payment transactions, postal and email delivery services that help us stay in touch with you, customer chat and email support services that help us communicate with you; those that help us understand and enhance our services (like analytics providers); those that make tools to help us run our operations (like programs that help us with task management, scheduling, word processing, email and other communications, and collaboration among our teams).

Legal and regulatory requirements: We may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request.

To protect rights, property, and others: We may disclose information about you when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, third parties, or the public at large. For example, if we have a good faith belief that there is an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury, we may disclose information related to the emergency without delay.

With your consent: We may share and disclose information with your consent or at your direction. For example, we may share your information with third parties when you authorize us to do so.

Information Shared Publicly

Information that you choose to make public is disclosed publicly. That means information like your public profile, posts, your profile picture, bio, other content that you make public on your website, and your “Likes” and comments on other posts are all available to others.

Please keep all of this in mind when deciding what you would like to share publicly.

Keeping Information

We generally discard information about you when it’s no longer needed for the purposes for which we collect and use it — described in the section above — and we’re not legally required to keep it.

For example, we keep web server logs that record information about a visitor in our website, like the visitor’s IP address, browser type, and operating system, for approximately 30 days. We retain the logs for this period of time in order to, among other things, analyze traffic to our website and investigate issues if something goes wrong on one of our websites.

Managing Your Information

Your Rights

Limit the information that you provide: If you have an account with us, you can choose not to provide the optional account information, profile information, and transaction and billing information.

Opt out of marketing communications: You may opt out of receiving promotional communications from us. Just follow the instructions in those communications or let us know through our email at jmrinstitute.secretariat@gmail.com. If you opt out of promotional communications, we may still send you other communications, relating to your account like some course information, notices, and more.

If you request your data to be deleted, it will not include any data we are obliged to keep for commercial, administrative, legal, or security purposes. For example, we may need to maintain records of credit card transactions or products or services purchased by you from us for a period of time in the event any dispute or other occasion arises whereby that information may be required by third-parties or government entities.

You may request that we delete information provided by you to us by emailing or if you believe that we have inaccurate or incomplete information about you, you may request an update to your information by emailing us at jmrinstitute.secretariat@gmail.com.

To maintain the integrity of our website and the information you provide to us, we may copy that information to a secondary information storage device (in forms of back-ups).  In the event that you request that we delete your information, we will also delete it from our back-up data storage to the extent that it is commercially reasonable to do so.  Nevertheless, we do not access our back-up storage except under circumstances where data from our primary storage has been compromised (such as may occur during power surges or other situations where our primary storage may be damaged).

Security

While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so. We monitor our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.

Cookie Policy

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you request your data to be deleted, it will not include any data we are obliged to keep for commercial, administrative, legal, or security purposes. For example, we may need to maintain records of credit card transactions or products or services purchased by you from us for a period of time in the event any dispute or other occasion arises whereby that information may be required by third-parties or government entities.

You may request that we delete information provided by you to us by emailing or if you believe that we have inaccurate or incomplete information about you, you may request an update to your information by emailing us at jmrinstitute.secretariat@gmail.com.

Updating Our Privacy Policy

Although most changes are likely to be minor, we may change our Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the change log below, and, in some cases, we may provide additional notice (like adding a statement to our homepage, or sending you a notification through email). Your further use of the services after a change to our Privacy Policy will be subject to the updated policy.

Disputes of Our Privacy Policy
