It also describes your choices regarding use, access and correction of your personal information.



This Privacy Policy covers the treatment of the personal information gathered by Jonamo when you use or access the Services, or when you view or interact with a Jonamo link (either our links or one of our branded domains). This Privacy Policy also covers Jonamo’s treatment of any information about you that Jonamo’s customers share with Jonamo.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of other businesses that Jonamo does not own or control, including other companies’ websites, services and applications (“Third Party Services”) that you can access through the Services, such as Facebook or Twitter, or to individuals that Jonamo does not manage or employ. We cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those Third Party Services. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any Third Party Services you access.


Information We Collect

Jonamo may collect personal information about you as described in this Privacy Policy when you

  1. register for the Site and the Services with Jonamo, including registering through a third-party service (your “Account”),
  2. use the Services, or
  3. view or interact with a Jonamo link (either our links or one of our branded domains) on a third-party website.

We collect the following types of information from you, some of which might be considered personal information under applicable law.


When You Register for a Jonamo Account

When you create an Account, we may collect personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, company name, industry, job title, company size and email address. If you create an Account using your login from a third-party account, such as Google, Facebook or Twitter, we will access and collect the personal information about you that the third-party account provides (which is based on your privacy settings with the third-party account), so that you can log into your account with us. We use your contact information to send you information about our Services and communicate with you about your account, your activities on our Site and Services and policy changes. You may unsubscribe from receiving certain types of these messages through your Account settings, although Jonamo reserves the right to contact you when we believe it is necessary, such as for administrative and account management purposes.

Some features of the Services allow registered users to provide their content to the Services, such as written descriptions of URLs, comments, images and video. Unless you request deletion of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy, all content submitted by you to the Services may be retained by Jonamo, even after you terminate your account and may continue to be shared by third parties, as described in this Privacy Policy.


When You Create a Link

One feature of the jonamo Services is the ability to create shortened uniform resource locators (URLs) of websites (“Jonamo Link”). Users can create Jonamo Links without registering for an account. When you create a Jonamo Link, Jonamo collects and stores both the original URL and the shortened URL and, if you logged in to your account, we would associate that information with your account. Jonamo also collects and stores your IP address, your location, which we derive from your IP address, the time and date on which you shortened the original URL, and if you share a Jonamo Link on a social networking platform, the name of the platform and your username on that platform.


When You Interact With a Jonamo Link

Jonamo automatically collects personal information about the interaction (such as clicks or views) with every Jonamo Link created through the Services (either our links or one of our branded domains) on a third-party website. This information includes, but is not limited to: (i) the IP address and location derived from the IP address; (ii) the referring websites or services; (iii) the time and date of each access; (iv) device settings, such as browser type, operating system, and language; (v) cookies, as described below, and mobile advertising identifiers and (v) information about sharing of the Jonamo Link on Third Party Services such as Twitter and Facebook (collectively, “Jonamo Link Metrics”). As described in this policy, we use Jonamo Link Metrics to provide the Services, to understand and analyze how our Services are used and to identify trends, and to detect, deter and prevent malicious, fraudulent or unlawful activity. Please see the “Information We May Share” section of this Privacy Policy for a description of how we may share information we collect when you create, view or interact with Jonamo Links.


Other Information We Automatically Collect

  2. the referring websites or services;
  3. the time and date of each access;
  4. device settings, such as browser type, operating system, and language; and
  5. cookie information.

This type of data enables us and third parties authorized by us to figure out how often individuals use parts of the Site so that we can analyze and improve them.

Jonamo may use third-party APIs and software development kits (“SDKs”) to provide certain functions in our Services.


Third-Party Services

Some features of the Services allow you to share your content and Jonamo Links through your accounts with other companies such as Facebook and Twitter.

We will ask you for permission before you authorize our collection of this information. We will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us. We may also collect information about how you are using the Services to interact with those connected Third Party Services. Note that Third Party Services may have the ability to restrict the information that is provided to us based on your privacy settings of that account.

To enable us to infer the location from the IP addresses of computers or devices that visit our website or click, view or interact with Jonamo links as described in this policy, we receive IP-based location information from our third-party service provider. We also get business contact information of our business customer contacts and prospects from our third-party service provider.

Usage Across Devices

For example, if you created a Jonamo link on a computer connected to your private WiFi network, and you soon after that clicked on a Jonamo link on a mobile device connected to the same WiFi network, we may infer that a single individual created and clicked on the Jonamo links because both events were associated with the same IP address in the same period.
