Please read this Privacy Policy carefully so that you understand our online privacy practices. By visiting this website, you agree that your visit, and any dispute over our online privacy practices, is governed by this Privacy Policy, Visitor AgreementContent Guidelines and Author Rules.

PERSONAL DATA

 

Personal data means any information about material or personal circumstances of a specific and identifiable natural person. This includes your name, your telephone number, your address, as well as all application data that you share with us in the course of your application.

 

TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

 

The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information (for example, your name, address or credit card number) that you voluntarily supply (for example, when you register as a visitor to the website, customize the NIJIRI.com service to provide you with information about services specific to your neighborhood, or participate in the features we may offer through the website (such as providing comments in a discussion group or blog)), and (2) information gathered on usage patterns and preferences as visitors navigate through our website. In some cases, one of our Affiliates or agents may collect the information on our behalf. Third-party Service Providers (as defined below) featured on or linked to by our website, such as vendors of products and services offered through our website, may be gathering the same kinds of information.

 

Registration Information

 

To make use of certain features available through this website you will need to register and to provide certain information, such as your name and email address as part of the registration process. (You may be able to bypass some of the steps within the registration process by using your user name and password associated with your account on certain specified social networking sites when you register for our website, but you will still have to complete the registration process after entering that information.) We may also ask you to provide us with other demographic information about yourself, such as your age, sex, and zip code, and we might request information on your interest in sports, personal finance, the performing arts, and the like.) The information you supply will help us to offer you more personalized features, to tailor our website to your interests and make them more useful to you.

 

Billing Information

 

In order to purchase a Listing Plan or an Ad Campaign, you will need to provide us with billing information, including a credit card number, so we can process your payment. We will not store your credit card number on our systems. Accordingly, you will need to enter it on the payment page each time you purchase a Listing Plan or an Ad Campaign. Our Service Providers may store your billing information in order to facilitate your purchases of a Listing Plan or an Ad Campaign.

 

Contests and Other Promotions

 

From time to time, we may offer contests, sweepstakes or other promotions on our website. If you enter one of these contests, sweepstakes, or promotions, you will have to provide information about yourself (such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address) so that we can contact you if you win. If you do not want us to collect the information requested in the registration form, please do not enter the contest, sweepstakes or promotion.

 

E-mail Newsletters

 

We may offer you the opportunity to subscribe to e-mail newsletters on topics that we believe are of interest to you. These e-mails newsletters include the Great Deal offers and other deals, recommendations and topics. If you have opted to receive newsletters, you may always unsubscribe later if you decide not to receive further mailings of any newsletters from us. Each newsletter will include instructions on how to unsubscribe from future issues by using either a designated reply e-mail address or hyperlink.

 

Cookies

 

To help make our website more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we keep track of the pages visited by our users by placing a “cookie,” a small entry in text file, on your hard drive. The cookie does not actually identify you, just the computer or mobile device that you use to access our website. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example), we will not know who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer or mobile device. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply. A cookie can not read unrelated data off your hard drive. Our advertisers and Service Providers that provide products or services through our website may also assign their own cookies to your browser, a process that we don’t control. We use cookies to help us tailor our website to your needs, to deliver a better, more personalized service. For example, we may use cookies to allow you to search for those businesses closest to your home. In addition, we may use cookies to track the pages on our website visited by our users. We can build a better website if we know which pages our users are visiting and how often. You can manage your browser’s cookie setting through the “options” menu on most commercially available web browsers, including options to set your browser to notify you before accepting a cookie or to disable cookies entirely. Of course, you can set your browser not to accept cookies, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other visitors to our website.

 

Web Beacons

 

Our web pages may contain electronic images (called “single-pixel GIFs” or “web beacons”) that allow us and our Affiliates, Service Providers, and, where necessary, our advertisers to count users who have visited particular pages of this site or sites owned or operated by third parties or to access certain cookies. We may use these tools and other technologies to recognize which pages users visit, and the links on which they click. These features may also be included in our email newsletters so that we can learn which messages have been opened and acted upon. We may also be able to verify your online purchases from us or from third-party sites that have agreed to share such information with us. We may use “clickstream” data collected using web beacons and cookies to help us tailor the content of promotional messages, including email messages, to the perceived interests of our users.

 

Browser Level Information and IP Addresses

 

Our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer configuration or your mobile device when you visit our website, including the type of browser software you use, the operating system you are running, the resolution of your computer monitor, the Web website that referred you, the type of device you are using, and your IP address. (Your IP address is a numerical address that is used by computers connected to the Internet to identify your computer so that data such as the web pages you want to view can be transmitted to you.) We also use IP address information for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. Your IP address does not tell us who you are. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor our website to the interests of our users, and to measure traffic within our website.

 

STORING OF YOUR APPLICATION DATA

 

For our application management we use servers located in Nigeria. The storage is happening within the framework of a data processing agreement.

 

All information gathered on our website is stored within a database operated by us or by a Service Provider on our behalf. Sensitive information, such as password or information, is encoded (not encrypted) for storage. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.

 

LOG FILES

 

Whenever you access the online application form, your internet browser will transmit user data that is stored in so-called server log files. The stored data includes the following details: The data and time of the visit, the name of the accessed page, your IP address; referrer URL (the URL from which you access the NIJIRI Business Network application site), the amount of data transmitted, as well as product and version details of your browser. Your IP address will be deleted or made anonymous immediately after the end of the visit. To make anonymous means to modify personal data in such a way that details of personal or material circumstances can no longer or only with disproportionate investment of time, cost, and labour be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person. We analyse these log files in anonymous form for the purposes of improving the quality and user friendliness of our online application processes and managing our server capacity.

 

DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

 

Why we want to know?

 

We collect information in order to make this website more useful and relevant to you. For example, we may ask you for an address so that you can map a route from your work or home address to that of a service provider, or so you can narrow your search to businesses that serve your neighborhood. In addition, as further described in our Visitor Agreement, we do make available through our website the Listing Plan or Ad Campaign service, which offers you the opportunity to purchase, at a discount, listings and ads (“Plans and Campaigns”). In order to purchase a Listing Plan (Basic or Premium) or Ad Campaign through the Plans and Campaigns, you will need to supply us with certain information about yourself, such as your name, e-mail address, and credit card information, for us to process your order. In addition, we may use information that we collect from you in part to make the plans and Campaigns services valuable to you by providing offers for products and services that you find appealing. So it is important that we be able to tell Merchants who our audience is.

 

Service Providers

 

All or portions of our website may be provided or supported by our third-party service providers (“Service Providers”), and we may share any of the information that we collect from you through this website (e.g., registration information, anonymous information collected through cookies on your browser or through web beacons, information you submit to us to enter a contest, sweepstakes or promotion offered through the website, etc.) with such Service Providers. Their use of the information may be subject to the terms of their respective privacy policies, which you can find on their websites.

 

Contest Co-Sponsors

 

If you enter any contest, sweepstakes or other promotion that we make available through this website, we may share the information you submit to us with the co-sponsor(s) of the contest, sweepstakes, or promotion. We will identify any co-sponsor(s) in the official rules for the promotion.

 

Our Affiliates

 

We may share any of the information that we collect from you (including anonymous information and personally identifying information that you may provide) with any of our affiliates (which include, without limitation, entities owned and/or operated by our parent company(ies) and its/their subsidiaries) (collectively, “Affiliates”) so that we and they can provide you with products and services that may be of interest to you.

 

Statistical Information

 

Much of the information we collect is in the form of aggregated statistics, such as the traffic that visits various pages within our sites, and the habits and preferences of our audience. Such aggregated information does not include any information that would identify you personally. We may use such aggregated information and disclose it to third parties as we see fit.

 

Websites to Which We Link

 

Our website includes links to plenty of other websites, and provides access to products and services offered by third parties, whose privacy policies we do not control. When you access another site or purchase products or services or conduct other transactions through our sites, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting or the provider of such products or services.

 

Other Disclosures

 

We reserve the right to release information about visitors to this website when release is necessary to comply with law, to enforce this Privacy Policy, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our website, the public, our customers, or our company and its employees, agents, partners and Affiliates. As our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that we merge with another entity or otherwise transfer substantially all of our assets to another entity (including, without limitation, to one of our Affiliates as part of an internal reorganization), information collected from this Service would be among the transferred assets.

 

DELETING PERSONAL DATA

 

Your data will usually be deleted automatically three months after the end of the application process. You can always request us to delete your data by sending a mail to: support@nijiri.com. Please note that doing so means that you are withdrawing from any still on-going application processes.

 

PURCHASES

 

When you purchase a Listing Plan or an Ad Campaign through NIJIRI.com, we will use the registration information you have provide us to process your transaction and to contact you regarding your purchase if necessary. As described above, we also may provide your registration information to Merchants from which you have purchased a Listing Plan or an Ad Campaign, who may use such information for their own business purposes, including processing the Listing Plan or Ad Campaign you purchased.

 

SOCIAL PLUGINS

 

Our website uses social plugins (“Plugins”) provided by several social networks. When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the social network. The social network directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling the social network to receive information about you having accessed the respective page of our website. For this purpose, the internet address of the visited site (your IP address included) might be transferred to USA-based servers where the data is stored. This might even occur even if you do not have a social network account or are not logged into a social network at the time. If you are logged into the social network, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to the social network and stored by it. The information can also be published on the social network, and shown to your social network friends. If you are a member of the social network and do not want it to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored by the social network, please log off before entering our website. You can also block social Plugins by using add-ons for your browser. You may refuse the use of social plugins by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. On this website we use the following plugins:
