ONEKANA™ is a system which makes it easy for businesses and people to share information about their organisations, products and hobbies with others, locally, globally, and visually through the use of visual interfaces overlayed with information and interactive applications incorporated into the interface.

OneKana™ follows three core principles

  • This is an open platform so, “what you see we all see” – you control the content that is visible for others to see, and you control the distribution of that content through partners’ and third party initiatives, as represented on their web sites.  Our default privacy settings allow others to request partnership with you, and allow you to be able to use our networking engine to do likewise – you can then accept or reject requests as per your individual objectives, as can third parties approached by you.
  • The platform is also open in the sense  that you may download and use the applications we have developed on your web site to drive your web site, or manage partnerships and reward programmes with third parties directly through your web site – we aim to make this process as easy as possible, so if you have suggestions or ideas please send them to In order to download and use the applications you will have to accept the terms of use relating to the applications (“Onekana™ Terms of Use”, a copy of the current version of which can be found in your personal account section behind your login).
  • Through our GlobalDistrict™ web sites,  we will publish, promote  and signpost initiatives of a local nature instigated by you and your partners, as well as the content you have made available to share.  Local GlobalDistrict™ web sites will locate and promote members with a view to creating local hubs supporting virtual 3D or artistic representations of geographical locations.  These are designed to act as local platforms for commerce, wealth creation, reward schemes, and community initiatives instigated by you.

OneKana™ means “be visible” in Swahili, and we derive our core principles from this goal of openness and visibility.



Onekana™’s Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how we collect and use the personal information you decide to share, and help you make informed decisions when using Onekana™.

Use of Information Obtained by Onekana™
When you register with Onekana™, you create a profile, which can be corporate or as an individual, Corporate profiles will include details about your office or corporate location. Your Corporate Profile information, as well as your name, email address and company banner or logo, are publicly displayed on the Onekana™ community web sites in order to promote your organisation using the logo , graphics and media provided by you.  This information is also displayed to other business, individuals (sole traders) and organisations on the networks in order to enable you to network with other organisations present on the networks. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by Onekana™ that we think you may find valuable, or to inform you of important updates to the service

All information you make public, including personal information, will be made available to third party search engines, and optimized for search engines according to the policy in place on the third party web site where your content is displayed.  Consequently, any information you make public will appear on the Onekana™ Communities web pages, and by making a page public you are consenting to this.  Third parties who wish to, may place your headlines on web pages owned or managed by them linking either to Onekana™ Community web pages or the relevant page on your web site if you have signed up to such a networking programme.  This is primarily to promote your organisation or content posted by you.  By default you will be emailed notification.  Other members may choose to email you from time to time and by default they are initially permitted to do so

Generally, you may opt out of such emails through your  network administration page, though Onekana™ reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
|Onekana™ may use information in your Profile without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this to enable other members to search and find information about you for the purposes of instigating contact with you, or to link to relevant content provided by you, or for personalising advertisements and promotions that we believe are relevant to you We believe this benefits you.

Where such information is used in your profile, or pages managed by you, we usually allow you to specify  acceptable content  prior to it being made public (e.g.third party endorsements).

Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
Onekana™ is about sharing information with organisations globally, or in your local community, while providing you with privacy settings that restrict other users from accessing information that you do not wish to be made public. We allow you to publish the information you wish to provide to other organisations through Onekana™. Our network architecture and settings allow you to make informed choices about  organisations you wish to work with or promote via their web sites. We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or 3) permitted by you. For example:

  • We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about Onekana™, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, to offer an online job application process, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where we utilise third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the Onekana™-specified purposes.
  • If you, or members of your network use any third party applications developed using the OneKana™ Platform ("Platform Applications", and any developer of a Platform Application a “Platform Developer”), those Platform Applications may access and share certain information about you with others in accordance with  the nature and operation of that application. Before allowing any Platform Developer to make any Platform Application available to you, Onekana™’s practice is to require the Platform Developer to enter into an agreement which, among other things, requires them to respect your privacy settings and strictly limits their collection, use and storage of your information. However, while we have undertaken contractual and technical steps to restrict possible misuse of such information by such Platform Developers, we of course cannot and do not guarantee that all Platform Developers will abide by such agreements. In addition, Platform Developers may require you to sign up to their own terms of service, privacy policies or other policies, which may give them additional rights or impose additional obligations on you, so please make sure that you review these terms and policies carefully before using any Platform Application. You can report any suspected misuse of information through the Onekana™ Platform and we will investigate any such claim and take appropriate action against the Platform Developer up to and including terminating their participation in the Onekana™ Platform and/or other formal legal action.
  • We occasionally provide demonstration accounts that allow non-users a examples of how Onekana™ and onekena work. Such accounts have only limited capabilities (e.g. emailing is disabled) and passwords are changed regularly to limit possible misuse.
  • We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Global Distict service or using the Onekana™ name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
  • We let you choose to share information with marketers or electronic commerce providers through on-site offers.
  • We may offer stores or provide services jointly with other companies on Onekana™. You can tell when another company is involved in any store or service provided on Onekana™, and we may share customer information with that company in connection with your use of that store or service.
  • If the ownership of all or substantially all of the Onekana™ business, or individual business units owned by Onekana™ were to change, your user information may be transferred to the new owner so the service can continue operations. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.

When you use Onekana™, certain information you post or share with third parties (e.g. a an organisation in your network), such as personal information, news events galleries, product, service, or  video promotions, or other information, may be shared with other users in accordance with the privacy settings you select. All such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information in your Profile or when posting, news items, events galleries, product, service, or  video promotions or other items, this information will be publicly available when you elect to do so.
