Active Information Collection

Like many websites, this Site actively collects information both by asking specific questions on the registration form, which is required, and by permitting users to communicate directly with us via e-mail, feedback forms, and/or chat rooms. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and so on).

Some areas of this Site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such as newsletter subscriptions, tips/pointers, order processing) or to participate in a particular activity (such as sweepstakes or other promotions). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.

Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as (Internet Protocol) IP addresses, cookies, Internet tags, and navigational data collection.

We use IP addresses on this Site. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our Site, and administer and improve the Site.

A “cookie” is a bit of information that a website sends to your web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences. We use cookies on this Site.

“Persistent” cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (e.g. passwords), helping to determine what areas of the website visitors find most valuable, and customizing the website based on your preferences.

“Internet tags” (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and tell the website server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor’s computer. We do not use “Internet tags” at this Site.

“Navigational data” (“log files,” “server logs,” and “clickstream” data) are used for system management, to improve the content of the site, market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors. This Site uses navigational data.

Use and Disclosure of Information

Except as otherwise stated, we may use your information to improve the content of our Site, to customize the Site for future user preferences, and to communicate information to you for marketing and research purposes as they pertain to JDD and its affiliate companies—including, but not limited to, SanovaWorks—as well as for other purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.

If you provide personally identifiable information to this Site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We will take reasonable measures to prevent personally identifiable information from being combined with passively collected information, unless you consent otherwise.

We may disclose your personally identifiable information to the sponsoring company that agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. In addition, we will not disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties. Please note that SanovaWorks reserves the right to change the Terms of Use under which this Site and its many offerings are extended to you. Your continued use of this Site following such modifications will be conclusively deemed acceptance of any changes to these Terms of Use.

Access and Correction

We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our Site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this Site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on this Site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.
