With whom does Zonda share your information?
Zonda shares your information with its affiliates and business partners, including agents such as third-party mail processing facilities. We may employ contractors to help with our operations. Some or all of these contractors may access the databases of user information. These contractors are and will be subject to confidentiality agreements that restrict their use and disclosure of all information they obtain through their relationship with Zonda.
In limited circumstances, Zonda may also share information about its subscribers with third parties in whose products or services Zonda believes you may be interested or third parties who may be interested in your products or services. Subject to applicable law, we may sell, rent, license, trade or otherwise disclose your personal information, including but not limited to your mailing address, phone number, and other registration information, to third parties for marketing, merchandising, or other purposes, and you should presume that your personal information may thus be subject to future transactions. When sharing your information with third parties, Zonda endeavors to oblige the third parties, via limited use or nondisclosure obligations where applicable, to follow practices substantially similar to those of Zonda with respect to such information.
Zonda will also share your information if required or permitted by law to do so, to comply with applicable laws or valid legal process such as in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry or order, or to another organization for the purposes of investigating a breach of an agreement or contravention of law or detecting, suppressing or preventing fraud, to protect the rights or property of Zonda, or as otherwise may be required or permitted by applicable U.S., Canadian, or other law or legal process, which may include lawful access by U.S. or foreign courts, law enforcement or other government authorities.
Additionally, if part or some of our assets are involved in a prospective or completed purchase by a third party, Zonda will share your information with the purchaser of all or part of our assets. If you use our “tell a friend” service to e-mail one of our articles, reports or product descriptions to a friend or colleague, Zonda will automatically send this person a one-time e-mail, attaching to the e-mail the content you wished for your friend to receive. You must ensure that you only refer individuals with whom you have a personal or family relationship, and who would want to receive the referral. Your e-mail address will appear on the “From” line of this e-mail, thereby disclosing this information to whoever opens and reads the e-mail. Zonda may provide users with the opportunity to request additional information from product manufacturers in our online directory or from our advertisers. If you specifically request information from a manufacturer or from one of our advertisers, your contact information will be given to that manufacturer or advertiser, to allow them to decide the best way to fulfill your request. Some of our advertisers may display ads on the Sites that solicit, or contain technology to collect, information about our users. This information is collected and used by our advertisers and is outside of our control. If you have any questions about an advertisement, you should contact the responsible advertiser directly.
Residents of certain U.S. states can learn more about how we may share the personal information we collect from and about you in the Supplemental Notice for Residents of Certain U.S. States section here.
What options do you have about how Zonda uses or shares your information?
How does Zonda respond to ‘Do Not Track’ signals?
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. We do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.
What kind of security measures does Zonda use?
We have put in place reasonable and appropriate administrative, physical, technical, and managerial procedures to attempt to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online. However, please remember that no transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us or from us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use our best efforts to ensure its security on our systems. Zonda, however, will have no liability for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmissions or the unauthorized intervention of third parties.
Passwords may be used by a Site to protect your personal information. We recommend that you do not share your passwords with anyone, and notify us promptly if you believe your password security has been breached. Zonda will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited e-mail. Also, if you are using a computer that others have access to, such as one in a computer lab, Internet cafe or public library, always remember to log out and close your browser window when leaving any of our Sites. In addition, any personal information or sensitive data that you disclose through any discussion boards or other public online forums hosted on the Sites may be collected and used by others. We recommend caution when giving out personal information to others in these public online forums. When you provide information on these forums, you do so at your own risk. The information you share may be viewed by any other user of the Sites.
What is Zonda’s position on children under 16 visiting the Sites?
These Sites are not intended for children under the age of 16. We will not knowingly collect personal information from Site visitors in this age group. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose online. If a child has provided us with personal information, a parent or guardian of that child may contact us via e-mail at the above e-mail address if they would like this information deleted from our records. We will use reasonable efforts to delete the child’s information from our databases.
Links to non-Zonda Websites
Many of our Sites contain links to websites owned and operated by unaffiliated third parties. These links are provided as a service to you, and do not constitute Zonda’s endorsement or support of the third-party websites. The third parties who operate these sites have their own information collection and use practices, and Zonda is not responsible for either the privacy practices or the content of these sites. When you follow a link and leave a Site, you do so at your own risk. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of each third-party site before
providing your personal information, and to contact the providers directly if you have any questions about their privacy policies.
Social Media Sites
A Site may contain links to third party social media sites, such as Ning, Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. The operators of such social media sites may collect personal information and use and disclose such information in accordance with their own privacy policies. For each such site, you should check with the site operator regarding its policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.
The Sites do not offer goods or services to data subjects in the European Union, nor do the Sites monitor online behavior that takes place within the European Union.
