Internet user privacy and confidentiality is of the utmost importance to Jalfrezi. Our reputation and integrity is directly related to how we serve our clients and customers. Please find below a description of how we strive to protect the privacy of Internet users, and maintain the Internet as a highly credible medium.
Jalfrezi will not pass on your name, e-mail address or any other personal details to any third party. We will not use your details for marketing purposes, e.g. unsolicited mail (spam), except to reply to specific queries or to send out our newsletter if requested.
The advertisement banners you see at the top of most pages in Jalfrezi are served by a third party, namely Burst! Media. They are a reputable company and have their own Privacy Statement, much of which is reiterated below.
All users who receive an ad served by Burst! retain complete anonymity where Burst! is concerned. As ads are delivered, Burst! does not acquire or collect any personal information about you. Your name, address, phone number, and email address all remain your private properties. Burst! does, however, collect information which is specific to how you use the Internet. Burst! servers note non-personally identifying details such as, but not limited to, the server you are logged onto, the geographic location of the ISP you use, the type of browser you use, and your IP address. This information is obtained solely for the purpose of targeting ads and measuring a given ad's effectiveness on behalf of Burst! clients and customers.
There are instances where a user may provide specific personal information in response to an ad containing a survey, purchase agreement, or registration questionnaire. For such programs, Burst! (or a third party working in conjunction with Burst! and the advertiser) acquires this information on behalf of the advertiser client. This information is used by the client so the user can receive the goods or services requested. When requested, Burst! may employ this information in a compiled format without identifying users specifically to provide to the advertiser client precise profiles of the types of individuals responding to the ads.
Often, advertisers will employ a third-party measurement service other than Burst! for tracking the performance of an ad program. In these instances, Burst! has no control over the information collected by the third-party, and may not be held responsible for the actions of the third-party measurement service where collected information is concerned. If you have questions regarding different third-party measurement services and their respective methods of information collection, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jalfrezi uses WebSideStory's Hitbox software to track page views and other statistics. WebSideStory are a reputable company and have their own Privacy Statement.
WebSideStory's servers note non-personally identifying details such as, but not limited to, the server you are logged onto, the geographic location of the ISP you use, the type of browser or operating system you use, and your IP address. This information is obtained solely for the purpose of gathering statistics to help Jalfrezi gain a non-personal knowledge of our visitors.
Some people (but not many) complain about the cookies used by Jalfrezi. It's either grumbling that they keep getting little windows popping up every time a cookie gets set or they are scared to death we're using them to find out they visited a dodgy site today. About the first thing: Hey! Why on earth do you have your browser set so that it beeps you every time you get a cookie? Turn that off! Unless you're debugging a website or extremely paranoid there's no reason for it.
As for the second issues: Servers can only access cookies that they've made. They can only be changed or read by the site that made them, and when you are at that site. That's the way cookies work. We have no idea where else you've been today. And frankly don't really care.
The cookies on this site are used solely by the banner ad and statistics companies to check if you're a repeat visitor and hence prevent Jalfrezi from artificially inflating hit counts. For a complete rundown on cookies (including how to make use of them yourself!) read Andy's HTTP Cookie Notes and the other sites we've provided in our Links and References.
