Any personal information you provide to the JAINpedia management team through the JAINpedia website will be treated in accordance with this privacy policy.

We take very seriously the private nature of your personal information. This privacy policy describes how we treat the information we collect when you visit JAINpedia. Please read this notice carefully.

Personal information

When you enter personal information on JAINpedia, you agree that this information can be used by JAINpedia to contact you and can be included in our mailing lists.  An exception is the feedback tabs on the beta website. If you enter your name and email address when you submit feedback, this is not included in mailing lists and is used purely for the purposes of beta testing.

JAINpedia does not collect any other personal information that you do not expressly provide. We will never sell, rent or share your personal information, including your e-mail address, with any third parties for marketing purposes or any other purposes without your express permission.

JAINpedia may share your personal information for the purpose of delivering emails to you or as required by law.

Non-personal information

The JAINpedia management team may also request information that cannot be used to identify you personally but which gives us more detail of website visitors and members. Examples of such information include age, location and occupation. These data are also known as demographic and profile data.

Giving this type of information is optional. We may use this data to improve our site.

We may also share this information with others, such as our partner institutions or funders, in aggregate, anonymous form. This means that it will not contain anything that could be used to identify you.

Usage information

In addition to collecting personal and non-personal information, JAINpedia may also collect non-personal, aggregated information about visitors’ use of our site. This information is not personally identifiable and will only be used to find out how visitors use our website and other services.

For example, this information will tell us how much time users spend on our site, from which other sites users came and to what other sites they go.

The collection of this information allows us to, among other things, prepare for traffic load demands and to improve the website.


JAINpedia uses browser ‘cookies’, as do many other websites. These are small text files placed on your computer’s hard disk by our server. They contain information the site can use to track things such as passwords, logins, user preferences and lists of pages visited.

JAINpedia will never use cookies to retrieve information from a computer that is unrelated to our site or services.

Review and access

Upon your request, we will provide you with a summary of the information we collect about you. You will have an opportunity to correct, update or modify this information.

You can contact us at any time.

Choice and opting out

If we ever send you information by e-mail concerning new products or services that you did not expressly request, we will provide you with an e-mail address by which you may request no future notices.


All information described above is stored on restricted database servers.

Changes to this policy

JAINpedia reserves the right to change this policy at any time without prior notification. However, the management team will post any changes here so be sure to check this page from time to time.
