Jona considers data privacy and security as the foundational pillar of its operations. Our data policy below clarifies how we source, maintain and use our data.
Whether you're a journalist or a PR professional looking for answers about our listed data's security and compliance, this documentation seeks to address all data-related concerns through our rigid Data Policy.
This Privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice”) is for individuals who would like to review, modify, restrict or take ownership of the information that Jona may have about them, explains how Jona collects and safeguards that information and how our Customers use that information. If at any time you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Notice or the services provided by Jona, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jona’s purpose is to facilitate the important relationship between journalists and public relations professionals and stop PR spam.
Like you, we want to see journalism thrive; that's why we’re committed to promoting and helping journalists succeed in today’s media landscape.
With technology and our team of experts, Jona aggregates information from a variety of sources (like data available on the Internet that’s indexable by any search engine like Google). Our goal is to give Customers and journalists the tools they need to build more valuable connections and promote the impact and importance of news and journalism.
Over the course of your career as a journalist, you’ll likely write thousands of articles for dozens of publications. You could manually track down those outlets, search for your links, check to make sure they’re still valid, and then create and continually update an online portfolio of your work. Or you can let Jona do the heavy lifting for you and get you pitches relevant to your specific field.
Our technology discovers newly published articles and automatically assigns those articles to your profile. We keep your portfolio up-to-date and safe while enabling you to customize your profile so that you’ll get more relevant pitches and other journalists will be able to easily find your work.
A thriving journalism community is important to us, and we want to support the journalists who make that possible.
Communications professionals can help journalists locate a source, uncover never before seen data, and offer resources for producing news that our world needs to know.
Because of how legacy media databases and platforms have been built, in the past, communications professionals have been forced to work with outdated, broad information about what a journalist covers. This results in errant emails, event invites for cities you’re nowhere near and a host of people trying to contact you with news that you likely won’t cover.
With Jona, communications professionals use our industry-leading data engine to find journalists based on the articles they’ve written and other information published publicly.
In all cases, our goal is to give Customers and journalists the tools they need to build more valuable connections and promote the impact and importance of news and journalism.
You may access, edit, or restrict the personal data in the profile Jona maintains for you from any country in the world. We may ask to verify your identity using your email or social media accounts before taking action on your request. If you ask us to delete or erase your data, we may still have to retain certain data about you only to ensure that your personal data does not re-enter our system and to protect your rights. Specifically, we will mark your Personal Data to ensure your data is no longer used in a profile that Jona maintains.
