Like many other Web sites, Digital Jamaica collects non-personally-identifying information. The information includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider ( ISP ), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. This type of information is not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Some visitors to our website may choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Digital Jamaica gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our newsletter to provide a name and email address.
In each case, Digital Jamaica collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. Digital Jamaica does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Digital Jamaica may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, we may monitor the most popular articles on our website. Digital Jamaica may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described in this document.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using our website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Digital Jamaica will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Digital Jamaica discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Digital Jamaica, third parties or the public at large.
