Your privacy is important to ZTERS, LLC. This statement describes the information gathering and dissemination practices of ZTERS for our Web sites www.zters.com (the “Sites”), including the types of information we collect and how we may use that information. We only obtain personally identifying information (“personal information”) about you when you actively provide us the information.
In general, you can visit our Sites without telling us your name or revealing any personal information such as your address, telephone number or e-mail address.
In certain parts of the Sites, we may ask you to provide your name or other personal information so that we can provide you with information that you request, respond to feedback that you submit to a Site, allow you to participate in activities on the Sites, such as one of our contests, or otherwise interact with the Sites. Further, we may ask you for demographic data, such as your preferred language or country of residence, to tailor your experience on the Sites, display content customized to your preferences, and to otherwise administer the Sites. You are under no obligation to provide us with this information, but without it, we may not be able to fulfill some types of requests. If you do not want your personal information collected, do not submit it through the Sites.
We make significant efforts to ensure that the personal information you provide to us remains secure. We will not sell, rent, or otherwise disclose the personal information you provide to us through the Sites to parties outside of ZTERS or our advertising, promotional and marketing agencies and consultants unless specified herein. We will disclose personal information if we are required to do so by law or have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform with existing laws or to cooperate with law enforcement agencies or in legal proceedings. Also, if all or part of ZTERS is sold to, or merges with, another company, or declares bankruptcy, some or all of the information collected from you may be transferred to a third party as a result of the transfer of assets. Furthermore, we may use third party contractors to help us operate our business and the Sites or administer activities on our behalf, and may share your personal information with these contractors for those limited purposes.
We may share anonymous aggregated data with other companies that we do business with for market research purposes. For example, we may report to our advertising agency that a certain percentage of our Sites’ users are United States residents between the ages of 21-25.
When you visit our Sites, your Internet browser will automatically send us your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address and information such as the type of browser you use, the date and time you accessed our Sites, and the IP address of the Web site from which you linked to our Sites. We may use this information to give you access to the Sites, to tailor your experience on our Sites, to display content customized to your preferences, and to otherwise administer the Sites. We may also share this information with third parties in aggregate non-identifiable form.
Like many companies, we may store information on your computer in the form of a “cookie.” A cookie may tell us whether you have visited our Sites before and what pages on our Sites you have viewed. The cookies we use do not collect any personal information about you, provide us with any way to contact you or extract any information from your computer. With most Internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored on your computer. Please refer to your Internet browser’s instructions or Help Screen to learn more about these options.
We will use your personal information for customer service, to provide you with information that you may request and to customize your experience on the Sites. We may also use your personal information to respond to your requests, tailor offerings to you, contact you about special events, offers and information we think would be of interest to you, and notify you if you won a prize in a contest. If you would prefer not to receive direct communications from us, you can opt out of this at the time of information collection.
