The Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ) respects your right to privacy and is committed to protecting your privacy. As certain types of information about users is gathered, the PIOJ wants to ensure that you fully understand the terms and conditions under which you use the site, and information is captured and used. It is the policy of the PIOJ to use any personal information acquired for business purposes only and this information will remain private.
If you send us feedback or register to buy a book and statistical data or join a discussion group, you will be asked for personal information, such as your name, address, email address, and organization. The information provided is used for technical and customer administration of the site only and isn't shared with third parties.
The PIOJ uses a contractual fulfillment vendor for credit card processing service to bill users for goods they purchase. This financial institution does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. This party is not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
Non-personally identifiable information
In some instances, non-personally identifiable information is collected to enable the PIOJ to better understand user preferences and improve its site and services to its clients. The information collected cannot be traced back to a particular individual. Examples of this type of information include statistics on the pages which are most and least frequently visited.
If you do not wish to share your information, you may have access to some areas of the site. However, you will not be able to purchase publications and other goods on-line.
Links To Other Sites
Although the PIOJ’s web site has links to other web sites, it is not responsible for the privacy practices, security policy or content of such web sites. It is recommended you carefully read the policy statements of each site you visit.
Care and diligence is exercised in managing and securing personal information once it is received. As such, the PIOJ employs a range of technologies to protect the information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. The PIOJ uses Secure Socket Layering (SSL) technology to encrypt your personal credit card information, including the account number, while it is transmitted over the Internet between your computer and our website servers. SSL is the industry standard technology for secure online transactions.
