Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Third-party data. JOC may also receive information from affiliates in our corporate group, our partners, or others that we use to make our own information better or more useful. This might be aggregate level information, or it might be more specific information, such as about how well an online marketing or email campaign performed.

In addition, we use third parties like Google Analytics for website analytics. You may opt-out of third-party cookies from Google Analytics on its website.

Who we share your data with

To understand and improve our Services, we carry out research and analyze trends to better understand how users are using the Services and improve them. 

Billing and account management. We use account data to administer accounts and keep track of billing and payments.

Communicating with you and marketing. We need to contact you for invoicing, account management, and similar reasons. We may also use your contact information for our own marketing or advertising purposes. You can opt-out of these at any time.

Investigating and preventing bad stuff from happening. We work hard to keep the Services secure and to prevent abuse and fraud.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data
