Note that we may process your personal data for more than one legal basis.


Updating Your Information And Opting Out

If you do not wish to provide us with your personal data and processing such data is necessary for the performance of a contract with you and to fulfil our contractual obligations to you, we may not be able to perform our obligations under the contract between us. Where you provide consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time and free of charge, but without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. No withdrawal of consent will be effective until we receive it and have had a reasonable time to act on it.

INOVEM Ltd and Jonas Software As Data Processor

In certain cases, we also operate as a data processor, collecting, processing, and transferring personal data on behalf of our business customers to provide our services and products. In these circumstances, we are acting as a data processor, but our business customers remain the data controllers with respect to the personal data they provide to us.

Our business customers remain the data controllers for any personal data they provide us for our services. To the extent that we are acting as data processors, we act in accordance with the instructions of such customers regarding the collection, processing, storage, deletion, and transfer of customer data, as well as other matters such as the provision of access to and rectification of personal data. We will only use such personal data to provide the services and products for which our business customers have engaged us.

Our business customers are responsible for ensuring that these individuals’ privacy is respected, including communicating to the individuals in their privacy policies who their personal data is being shared with and processed by. Where we are acting as a data processor, we will refer any request from an individual for access to personal data we hold about them to our customer. We will not usually respond directly to the request.
As data processors, we may share personal data when instructed by our business customers. Where authorised by the business customer, we may also share personal data with third-party service providers who work for us and are subject to security and confidentiality obligations.
We will retain personal data that we process on behalf of our customers for as long as appropriate to provide services and products to them, in accordance with any agreement with them or as permitted by applicable law.


Disclosure Of Your Personal Data To Third Parties

We may share your personal data with our group companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, or contractors as appropriate to carry out the purposes for which the information was supplied or collected (i.e. to provide the services and products you requested) or as otherwise provided in this policy. Personal data will also be shared with our third-party service providers and business partners who assist with running the Site and our services and products (including hosting providers, email service providers and payment processing partners). Our third-party service providers and business partners are subject to security and confidentiality obligations. They are only permitted to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Changes to GDPR post Brexit

In addition to the existing legislation, the UK government has issued a statutory instrument titled ‘The Data Protection, Privacy and Electronic Communications (Amendments etc) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019’. In simple terms, this amends the original law and merges it with the requirements of GDPR. The outcome will be a new data protection framework known as the ‘UK GDPR’.

Having left the EU as a non-member state, it will be reclassified as a ‘third country’.

The ICO will remain the independent supervisory body of UK data protection legislation.

The UK government will continue to work towards maintaining close working relationships between the ICO and other countries’ supervisory authorities.


International Transfers

If you are based in the EU or EEA

We may share your personal data within the Jonas group of companies. This involves transferring your data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) to Jonas’ affiliates and third-party service providers in Canada, United States, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Malaysia. Canada and New Zealand have been deemed by the EU as having an adequate level of protection for personal data.

Whenever we transfer your personal data outside the EEA to the countries identified above, which have not been deemed by the EU to have an adequate level of protection for personal data, and specifically to the United States, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by using standard data protection clauses approved by the European Commission (as permitted under Article 46(2)(c)) that are designed to help safeguard your privacy rights or by certifying under the E.U.-U.S. Privacy Shield and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield.


Security Of Your Personal Data

The security of your personal data is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal data we receive. We use commercially reasonable measures to safeguard personal data, which are appropriate to the type of information maintained and follow applicable laws regarding safeguarding any such information under our control. No method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage can be 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal data. The Internet is a public forum, and we encourage you to use caution when disclosing information online. Often, you are in the best situation to protect yourself online. You are responsible for protecting your username and password from third-party access and for selecting secure passwords.


Data Retention: How Long We Keep Your Personal Data

We will retain personal data, which we process on behalf of our customers for as long as it is appropriate to provide services and products to our customers following any agreement with them and for other legitimate purposes. When you contact us, we may keep a record of personal data in your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. Your personal data may be retained for as long as appropriate to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including to satisfy any legal, accounting, or reporting requirement and other legitimate purposes. We will consider all relevant factors to determine how long we will retain personal data.


Your Rights

You may request from us access to, correction of, blocking of or deletion of your personal data in line with applicable law. You may also withdraw your consent for us to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing before you withdraw your consent. Where your personal data is processed by us with your consent or for the performance of a contract by automated means, we will, to the extent required by applicable law, provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format upon request.


Responding To Requests

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights) under applicable law. This security measure protects personal data from being disclosed to anyone with no right to receive it. We may also contact you for further information about your request to speed up our response. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made several requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights) under applicable law. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. Also, please note that we may refuse a request for blocking or deletion where continued processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation or required for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims or for other purposes permitted by applicable law.

IP Addresses And Aggregate Information

An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is associated with your computer’s connection to the Internet. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, administer the Site, and maintain contact with you as you navigate through the Site. Your computer’s IP address may also provide you with information based on your navigation through the Site. Aggregate information is used to measure the visitors’ interest in and use of various areas of the Site and the various programs that we administer. We will rely upon aggregate information, which is information that does not identify you, such as statistical and navigational information. With this aggregate information, we may undertake statistical and other summary analyses of the visitors’ behaviours and characteristics. Although we may share this aggregate information with third parties, none of this information will allow anyone to identify you or determine anything else personal about you.


Links To Third Parties

Our Sites may contain links to third-party websites. These third-party websites are operated by companies outside our control, and your activities at those third-party websites will be governed by the policies and practices of those third parties. INOVEM Ltd and Jonas Software do not in any way endorse or make any representations about such third-party websites and applications. As such, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of third-party websites and applications subject to their own privacy policies. If you choose to access such links, we encourage you to review all third-party site privacy policies before submitting any of your personal data.


Social Media And Online Engagement

We occasionally use various new technologies and social media options to communicate and interact with customers, potential customers, employees, and potential employees. These sites and applications include popular social networking and media sites, open-source software communities and more. To better engage the public in ongoing dialogue, certain of our businesses use certain third-party platforms, including, but not limited to, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, and Google+. Third-Party Websites and Applications (TPWA) are Web-based technologies not exclusively operated or controlled by us. You may reveal specific personal data to us or third parties when interacting on those websites. Other than when used by our employees to respond to a particular message or request, we will not use, share, or retain your personal data.



We do not sell our services to children, and the Site is not intended for or directed at children under 16 years of age. As such, the Sites are designed for adult user interaction. We do not intentionally collect personal data from children under 16. If you believe that we may have collected personal data from someone under 16 without proper consent, please let us know using the methods described in this policy.


General Data Protection Regulation

Subject to certain limitations and exceptions, if you are in the European Economic Area, you have the following rights under the GDPR:

  • Access to personal data. This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Correction of personal data.  This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
  • Request erasure of personal data (Right to be forgotten). This enables you to ask us to delete personal data when there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete your personal data when you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), when we may have processed your information unlawfully or when we are required to erase your personal data to comply with applicable law.


When rights to be forgotten can be overridden

However, an organisation’s right to process someone’s data might override their right to be forgotten. Here are the reasons cited in the GDPR that trump the right to erasure:

  • The data is being used to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information.
  • The data is being used to comply with a legal ruling or obligation.
  • The data is being used to perform a task that is being carried out in the public interest or when exercising an organization’s official authority.
  • The data being processed is necessary for public health purposes and serves in the public interest.
  • The data being processed is necessary to perform preventative or occupational medicine. This only applies when the data is being processed by a health professional who is subject to a legal obligation of professional secrecy.
  • The data represents important information that serves the public interest, scientific research, historical research, or statistical purposes and where erasure of the data would likely to impair or halt progress towards the achievement that was the goal of the processing.
  • The data is being used for the establishment of a legal defence or in the exercise of other legal claims.

Restriction of processing personal data.  This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) when our use of personal data is unlawful, but you do not want us to erase it; (c) when you want us to hold personal data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of personal data, subject to our  verifying whether we have an overriding legitimate interest to continue using it.

Request transfer of personal data. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format.

Right to withdraw consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time when we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent.



If we receive formal written requests or complaints, we will follow up with the party making the request or complaint. To the extent required by applicable law, where we would not adequately address your request properly, you have the right to complain with the competent data protection authority in your locality (for example, in the UK, the supervisory authority would be the Information Commissioner’s Office).

Otherwise, any complaint by you regarding personal data or otherwise relating to this policy must first be submitted to INOVEM Ltd as outlined in the Contacting Us section, and we must be given a reasonable opportunity of not less than 30 days to investigate and respond to your complaint.  Upon completing such investigation and responding, we and you must then, in good faith, attempt to resolve any remaining aspects of your complaint promptly.  If any aspect of your remains unresolved after an additional reasonable period of not less than 30 days, you may commence litigation against us in connection with the unresolved portion of your complaint only in a court located in the county (or other similar municipality) in which Jonas is located.  You consent to any such court being a proper venue for such litigation and waive any right to object to such venue for inconvenience or otherwise.
