    This Privacy Policy explains how information about you is collected, used and disclosed by Jawa Ventures, Inc. (hereafter "Jawa", "our", "we", or "us"). This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect when you use our website and other online services (collectively, the "Jawa Service") or when you otherwise interact with us.

    We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with more prominent notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you an email notification). We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the Jawa Service to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

    3. Information from Third Parties.

    Jawa may, from time to time, obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through the Jawa Service in order to enhance our ability to serve you, prevent fraudulent transactions, tailor our content to you, offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you, and for any other purposes described in this Privacy Policy. For example, if you create or log into your account through a social media site, we will have access to certain information from that site, such as your name, account information and friends lists, in accordance with the authorization procedures determined by such social media site. We may also receive transaction information from Stripe Inc. when you purchase or sell a good using the Jawa payment solution, including the date and time of sale and the amount of the sale.

    4. Payment Information Collected by Stripe.

    Jawa is integrated with Stripe Inc.'s ("Stripe") services to allow sellers to accept credit card and other electronic payment methods for goods they list for sale on the Jawa Service. Stripe provides these services directly to sellers pursuant to its own terms and privacy policy.
