2. Information collection, use, and sharing
J3 is the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
J3 will use your information to communicate to you or to respond to your queries/concerns to about our Services and our web site. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order, submit transcripts, or inform your employer of your training status.
3. Data We Collect
When you decide to purchase our Services, we directly collect certain data from you, like information you disclose about yourself, data about your participation in course(s), and data from third-party platforms you connect with J3. We also collect some data automatically, like information about your device and what parts of our Services you interact with or spend time using.
3.1. Data You Provide to Us
We may collect different data from or about you depending on how you use the Services. Below are some examples to help you better understand the data we collect. When you create an account and use our Services, including through a third-party platform, we collect data you provide directly, including:
|Account Data||In order to use certain features (like enrolling in a course), you need to create a user account. When you create or update your account, we collect and store the data you provide, like your email address, password, gender, and date of birth, and assign you a unique identifying number (“Account Data”).|
|Profile Data||Use of our Services requires you to provide profile data like your photo, your profession and PRC License Number which we use to create your Certificates of Completion of the course you purchased and to submit reports to government regulating bodies like PRC to facilitate CPD requirements for professionals, Department of Public Works and Highways for training requirements of Project Engineers’ Certification, Philippine Contractors Accreditation Board (PCAB) for the processing of new and renewal of licenses. The same data you entrust to J3 will be stored for purposes of verification/authentication by people or entities who might be interested in your training record or yourself when you need reissuance of Certificate, when needed.|
|Shared Content||Some activities involved in the training course you purchase from J3 may need you to interact with other users of the Services and in the process of the interaction information or content may be shared publicly such as posting of reviews on a course page, answering questions, or reacting to some postings by other users. Such shared content may be viewed publicly depending on where it is posted.|
|Course Data||When taking a training course on J3 online, we collect certain data including the courses you purchased, quizzes and tests you completed, your answers to questions, and other items submitted to satisfy course requirements.|
|Student Payment Data||When you purchase any of our Services, we collect certain data related to your purchase (such as your name and zip code) as necessary to process your order. You must provide certain payment and billing data directly to our payment processing partner (PAYMAYA), including your name, credit card information, billing address, and zip code. For security reason, J3 does not collect or store sensitive cardholder data, such as full credit card numbers or card authentication data.|
3.2. Data We Collect through Automated Means
When you access the Services (including browsing courses), we collect certain data by automated means, including:
|System Data||Technical data about your computer or device, like your IP address, device type, operating system type and version, unique device identifiers, browser, browser language, domain and other systems data, and platform types (“System Data”).|

As a general policy, we do not collect or store any credit card data locally on our computer systems or in paper form. All credit card data collected is stored in an encrypted form by our credit card processor.

Only employees (all are to accomplish a Non-Disclosure Agreement with J3) who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files stored by your browser as you browse the internet. They can be used to collect, store, and share data about your activities across websites, including on J3. Cookies also allow us to remember things about your visits to J3, and to make the site easier to use.
We use both session cookies, which expire after a short time or when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which remain stored in your browser for a set period of time. We use session cookies to identify you during a single browsing session, like when you log into J3. We use persistent cookies where we need to identify you over a longer period, like when you request that we keep you signed in.
|Authentication and security||To log you into J3
To protect your security

|Preferences||To remember data about your browser and your preferences
To remember your settings and other choices you’ve made
For example, cookies help us remember your preferred language or the country you’re in, so we can provide content in your preferred language without asking each time you visit.
