This policy is updated and effective as of December 2010.
Type of Information Collected
We do not collect any personally identifiable information without your consent. We may collect and store information from you that you voluntarily choose to give us or enter on our website, including, but not limited to, personally identifiable information such as your name, address, e-mail address, date of birth, and phone number. Our primary purpose in collecting and processing your personally identifiable information is to provide you with services you request or to personalize product information and offers to you. We may also use your personally identifiable information to provide you with additional information about our products and services and to send you information on other products and services that may be of interest to you. You might be offered the option to receive information from outside sources on other products and services. Your election not to receive information from outside sources will not affect your other interactions with Zweena. Opt-ins will be clearly outlined in the area of our web site where we collect information for these purposes.
Information We Collect Before You Register
We do track information provided to us by your browser including the web site you came from (known as the referring URL), the type of browser you use, the time and date of access, and other information. Some of this information can be used to identify you. In addition, we gather information about you that is automatically collected by our web server, such as your IP address and domain name. Zweena may use web server and browser information to customize its information or presentation if you proceed to the point of submitting your personal information during registration. Please note, when you register for Zweena on our registration site, you are providing personally identifiable information, and that information must be collected to be a Zweena participant.
Information We Collect When you Register
Visitors registering for services on the Site are asked to provide identifying information, such as name, address, e-mail address or phone number, and other identifying information. On the registration screens, we clearly indicate which information is required for registration, and which information is optional and may be provided at your discretion. You have the choice not to submit any personally identifiable information to us.
Other Information – Cookies and other Tracking Systems
Cookies, log files, and pixel-tags (sometimes called web beacons) are technologies that are or may be used by this Site to identify a user as the user moves through the Site.
Cookie technology allows us to collect “clickstream” or “clickstream data” that reflects the specific web pages visited by an individual user, and, importantly, the manner or traffic pattern by which the user navigates through the Site. Zweena tracks such information within its Site. Clickstream does not contain or reveal any personally identifiable information about the user.
Zweena visitors always have the option to disable cookies via their browser preferences. Disabling cookies will affect certain functionality aspects of the website.
Pixel-tags or web beacons are similar in function to a cookie, though they are more difficult to detect. We may use pixel-tags or web beacons to measure the effectiveness and/or traffic on the Site. They are used to pass certain information to our servers to personalize the Site and to track usage navigation through the Site. Web beacons may sometimes be included in e-mail messages from Zweena in order to determine which e-mail messages were opened and to note whether an e-mail message was acted upon.
The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is also common in the Internet industry. Zweena has no control over, and cannot protect against, the practices or policies of other web sites that you may link to from this Site.
Use of Your Information
Storage of Information
We also protect your personally identifiable information by requiring, that all employees and others who have access to or are associated with the processing of your data, respect your confidentiality.
Once you have provided personally identifiable information to Zweena, we will store and maintain the information you have volunteered for so long as we are required by law, or for so long as you have not directed us otherwise. Retention of your personally identifiable information allows us to continue to provide you with highly personalized services without interruption. Of course, you can always contact us in order to 1) request us to deactivate your personally identifiable information, 2) update the personally identifiable information that you have provided to us, and 3) change your preferences with respect to marketing contacts by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or if applicable, logging onto your account to update your profile.
Visitors should be aware that it is not possible to remove from servers each and every record of the information you have provided to Zweena. The need to back up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form. Nevertheless, we promise that upon receiving your request, Zweena will delete all personally identifiable information stored in the databases it actively uses for research and daily business activities, or stored in other readily searchable media. In addition, we will use commercially reasonable efforts not to disclose any personally identifiable information stored in a non-erasable format after receiving your request for removal, except as required by law or court order.
When you register on the Site, you will be given the option of receiving recurring informational/promotional e-mail from Zweena and third parties working with Zweena. You may opt-out from receiving e-mails when you provide your personally identifiable information or follow the instructions as mentioned in the e-mail or included in each of our programs we send to you to opt-out of such communication streams in the future. Following notification, you will be unsubscribed from any communication stream within ten business days of your notification to us.
We are committed to protecting the privacy rights of children. The Site is intended for adult users over the age of 13. The Site is not designed to attract child users. If we learn that an under-13 user has volunteered personally identifiable information on the Site, we will delete such information from our active databases in accordance with our deletion policy, described in the Storage of Information section above.
