1.0 What information we collect and how we use it

1.1 Email Subscription
To subscribe to our email mailings, you may choose to provide Jonesco some relevant information. The personal information you may include will be your email address, first name, last name, country, company affiliation and product interests you would like to hear about from us. We only require a first name for email personalisation, an email address to send it to, and a country so we don’t send you irrelevant information for your part of the world.
We use this information in co-operation with MailChimp, as a 3rd party data processor, to provide us with email marketing services. Information you submit will be maintained within MailChimp’s own database.
Once subscribed you will receive periodic emails that correspond to your email interests when you signed-up to the service.
When you subscribe to our email mailings MailChimp automatically notes your IP address as a record of consent. An email data source may be recorded if we have added your email from another consent source that we need to maintain for our own records.
Alternatively, for existing customers we may occasionally send you marketing information where we have assessed that it is beneficial to you and in our interests to contact. Such information will be non-intrusive and is processed on the grounds of legitimate interest. In addition to the above collected information we may utilise prior purchasing preferences to only send you relevant information. Where used, we evaluate legitimate interest with a thorough legitimate interest assessment (LIA).

1.2 Contact forms and emails
If you choose to correspond to us via email, either directly or through our contact-us web-form, no data is stored on our website or shared to our 3rd parties (section 2.0). We only retain emails on our systems for as long as required in our retention policy.
Should you check the box to consent (opt-in) for selected product news and developments we shall add your email to our MailChimp email platform on your behalf to provide you with that service.
If your contact involves confidential or private information we advise you to send encrypted files with the access password(s) sent separately through alternate means of communication.

1.3 Analytics
Like most websites, Jonesco’s sites uses Google Analytics(GA) to track user interaction. This allows us to determine the number of visitors using our site, how they came across our site, and what pages they view whilst on our website.
We opt to use anonymised IP addresses, where the last two octets are zeros, for a higher level of visitor privacy in our analytics. This still does allow us to roughly geolocate our website user traffic, so we can view visitors by country for instance. There is also basic information collected such as browser type, device information and language which is aggregated into statistics. We use this information to evaluate and improve the services we offer. Google has developed an addon for use to opt-out of GA data collection.
