JINITTO collects information about you when you use our mobile applications, websites, and other online products and services (collectively, the “Services”) and through other interactions and communications you have with us. Jinitto is fully GPDR compliant and is committed to protecting your data.
Collection of Information
Information You Provide to Us
We collect information you provide directly to us, such as when you create or modify your account, request on-demand services, contact customer support, or otherwise communicate with us. This information may include: name, email, phone number, postal address, profile picture, payment method, items requested (for delivery services), delivery notes, and other information you choose to provide.
Information We Collect Through Your Use of Our Services
When you use our Services, we collect information about you in the following general categories:
We ask you to give the app permission to Take pictures and record Video: we do not actually take pictures or record any videos, but this is how Android asks the question on your device because it means some apps can indeed take pictures and record videos if they have access to them. But essentially this is the permission required for the app to stream in the video connection that you will have during the consultations or live video tuitions.
We ask you to give the app permission to record Audio: we do not actually record any audio, but this is how Android asks the question on your device because it means some apps can indeed record audio because they have access to it. But essentially this is the permission required for the app to stream in the video connection that you will have during the consultations or live video tuitions.
We ask you to give the app permission to Access photos and media files: this is so you can upload the necessary documents and pictures to the platform from your device.
We ask you to give the app permission to Make and Manage phone calls (Android only): we do not actually make or manage calls through your network provider, all audio and video calls are made via Internet. This particular permission is required to identify our call we make to you to validate your mobile number you provide on the app. Indeed when you signup, we need to verify your number, we don’t use sms for this, but we make a phone call from one of our phone numbers to you, the app identifies the caller and validates your number automatically without intervention if you are using an Android device. If you are using an iPhone then you need to manually type in the last 4 digits of the number we called you from. You don’t have to answer the call.
Location Information: (this feature is not rolled out yet) When you use the Services for professional advice, we collect precise data about the call from the JINITTO app used by the user and the Advisor. If you permit the JINITTO app to access the required services through the permission system used by your mobile operating system (“platform”), we may also collect the precise location of your device when the app is running in the foreground or background. We may also derive your approximate location from your IP address.
Transaction Information: We collect transaction details related to your use of our Services, including the type of service requested, date and time the service was provided, amount charged, type and duration of the call, and other related transaction details.
Device Information: We may collect information about your mobile device, including, for example, the hardware model, operating system and version, software and file names and versions, preferred language, unique device identifier, advertising identifiers, serial number, device motion information, and mobile network information.
Log Information: When you interact with the Services, we collect server logs, which may include information like device IP address, access dates and times, app features or pages viewed, app crashes and other system activity, type of browser, and the third-party site or service you were using before interacting with our Services.
Information We Collect From Other Sources
We may also receive information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through our Services. For example:
If you choose to link, create, or log in to your JINITTO account with a payment provider (e.g., Google Wallet) or social media service (e.g., Facebook), or if you engage with a separate app or website that uses our API (or whose API we use), we may receive information about you or your connections from that site or app.
If your employer uses one of our enterprise solutions, such as JINITTO for Business, we may receive information about you from your employer.
When you request on demand services, our Advisors may provide us with a User rating after providing services to you.
If you also interact with our Services in another capacity, for instance as an Advisor or user of other apps we provide, we may combine or associate that information with information we have collected from you in your capacity as a User.
