Privacy Policy

Protecting the Privacy of Your Personal Information

zeaLOG is dedicated to maintaining and protecting your privacy. By using our service, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. This Policy explains what information we collect and how we use the information so we can continue to provide outstanding service to you.

What does this Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy covers zeaLOG's treatment of personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") that zeaLOG gathers when you are accessing the zeaLOG web site and when you use zeaLOG products or services. The types of Personal Information collected include your full name, gender, birth date, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and credit card information. Also, this Policy covers zeaLOG treatment of any Personal Information that zeaLOG's business partners share with zeaLOG. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that zeaLOG does not own or control, or to individuals that zeaLOG does not employ or manage.

What information does zeaLOG collect?

The information we gather from customers enables us to personalize and improve our products and services. We collect the following types of information from our customers.

When you sign up with zeaLOG, you establish a password-protected personal account for uploading, storing, organizing and sharing any content. The types of Personal Information collected may include your full name, gender, birth date, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and credit card information and password.

The password will allow you access to your account; as such, it needs to be as secure as possible. A good password includes seemingly random letters and numbers, and isn't obvious (such as names of a spouse, child, or pet).

We may occasionally request information from users through surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary. The information requested may include Personal Information, demographic information or attitudinal information. Rest assured, the information collected is only used for purposes of improving user satisfaction with the zeaLOG service.

Any contact with our Customer Service team or communication from you, such as emails, may be recorded to help us provide better service.

zeaLOG keeps the Personal Information you provide on servers that are protected against intrusion or unauthorized access by firewalls and other technological means. They are located in a physically secure facility, and only zeaLOG employees and agents are given access to the information on a need-to-know basis.

If you visit a zeaLOG web site, your visit may be logged and reported back to the site owner for traffic reporting purposes.

Children under the age of 13

No portion of our site directly solicits children 13 years old or younger. We make every attempt to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998.

What does zeaLOG do with the information they collect?

Any personally identifiable information you share with zeaLOG when registering is maintained and accessible only by zeaLOG unless specifically stated otherwise. The following are examples of how zeaLOG may use the information it collects:

zeaLOG uses the aggregate data to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our registered users and visitors, to measure user demographics and interests regarding specific areas of zeaLOG and to analyze how and where best to use our resources. Without such data, we would not know which parts of zeaLOG are the most popular, and we would not be able to change and update the content and services appropriately.

zeaLOG, from time to time, may use your information to contact you about changes or enhancements to Products and Services on zeaLOG.

zeaLOG may be required by law to disclose Personal Information to proper law enforcement authorities, or to other individuals or entities in response to subpoena, court order, or other legal process, even though you might have requested that we don't share your information. This information may be necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against anyone who may attempt to cause injury to another's rights or property. In matters involving a danger to personal or public safety, zeaLOG may voluntarily provide information to appropriate governmental authorities.

Will zeaLOG share any of the Personal Information it receives?

Personal Information about our customers is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. We share your Personal Information only with your consent or to business partners and affiliates as described below:

Agents: We may employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, zeaLOG's agents do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal Information for the above purposes.

Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if zeaLOG, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, customer 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 zeaLOG may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.

Protection of zeaLOG and Others: We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with any law; enforce or apply our terms of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of zeaLOG, our employees, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

You may modify your browser preference to provide you with choices relating to cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies, you may not be able to access the zeaLOG service.

We may also use other technologies such as clear gifs, pixel tags, and scanning navigational data to collect anonymous information about our users in order to help us deliver better service and user experience.

What kinds of security procedures are in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your information?

zeaLOG has security measures in place to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of your user data under our control. Only authorized employees have access to the information you provide us. zeaLOG has implemented strict rules on employees who have access either to the databases that store user information or to the servers that host our services. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur, we take many precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences. Any other particularly sensitive information, such as your credit card number is encrypted prior to transmission.

You are ultimately responsible for the security of your zeaLOG ID and password. Please take care when using and storing them. zeaLOG recommends that you do not divulge your password to anyone.
