We use the Demographics and Interests features of Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics provides tools to help us to analyze users’ demographics and general interests, such as age, gender, affinity categories, and in-market segments on a non-personalized basis. Using cookies stored on your web browser, Google compiles reports analyzing use of the Site and the demographics and interests of Site users. Google may share the data it collects with other Google services and may use the data to contextualize and personalize ads of its own advertising network.

If you access our Site Okanjo from a shared or publicly accessible location, your User ID, account activity or other information may be visible to other people who later use the computer.

If your password becomes compromised, immediately notify Okanjo and change your password by contacting us at support@okanjo.com.

Cookies

From time to time, we may use “cookies”, “web beacons” or similar technology for the convenience of our users and to enhance your experience in using the Site. A cookie is a small text file that is recorded either temporarily or persistently on your hard drive by a web page server and is not used to deliver viruses or other harmful programs to your computer. Rather, cookies enable us to recognize a user without requiring the user to repeatedly log in when using the Site. Web beacons are graphics designed to collect web log information such as pages viewed or messages opened. You may decline Okanjo cookies as allowed by your browser; however, this may interfere with your use of our services or the Site. By relying on cookies, web beacons, and similar technology, we may be able to deliver a more efficient service that is more personalized for each user. Additionally, these technologies may allow us to monitor traffic patterns, Site usage, and session information to make the Site more useful.

Site Security and Personal Information

We use various security tools (e.g., encryption, passwords, and physical security) to protect your personal information, which is stored on servers located in the United States, against unauthorized access. Nevertheless, third parties or other users may attempt to unlawfully intercept or access communications, data, and personal information and may successfully obtain and misuse your personal information collected from our Site. As a result, despite our efforts to protect your privacy, you agree and understand that we cannot promise or guarantee the privacy of your personal information or communications.

Registration and Sharing Through Third-Party Services

We may offer single sign-on services that allow you to use third party login credentials to sign into Okanjo. With your permission, Okanjo may also transfer profile information contained in your third-party profile. Okanjo may also, for your use, enable you to import information about whom you are connected to, such as importing contacts from other third parties, as well as enable you to share information with those third-party sites. If you wish to discontinue such sharing, you will be able to do so through your Preference Settings. We collect the username and password for the email account you wish to import your contacts from and will use such information only for that purpose.
