Your privacy is critically important to us. At ZFI INC we have a few fundamental principles:
It is ZFI INC's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, ZFI INC collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. ZFI INC's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how ZFI INC's visitors use its website. From time to time, ZFI INC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
ZFI INC also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. ZFI INC only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to ZFI INC's website choose to interact with ZFI INC in ways that require ZFI INC to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that ZFI INC gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with ZFI INC – by purchasing access, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, ZFI INC collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with ZFI INC . ZFI INC 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.
ZFI INC may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, ZFI INC may monitor the most popular items on the site or use spam screened service to help identify spam. ZFI INC may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, ZFI INC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
ZFI INC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on ZFI INC's behalf or to provide services available at ZFI INC’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using ZFI INC’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. ZFI INC 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, ZFI INC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when ZFI INC believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of ZFI INC, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an ZFI INC website and have supplied your email address, ZFI INC may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with ZFI INC and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. ZFI INC takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If ZFI INC, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that ZFI INC goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of ZFI INC may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to our anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
