Zedcom Media Inc. Privacy
Thank you for your interest in Zedcom Media Inc. products and services. We believe in giving you full disclosure about the kinds of information we gather and what we do with it, and in giving you a choice about the use of your personal information.
What is personal information?
Personal information is any information that is related to you as an identifiable individual. It typically includes such information as your name, e-mail address, or mailing address. It could also include preferences you provided at web sites or other information.
We retain only information you provide voluntarily. We will ask for your name, address, e-mail address, or other personal information when you register with a web site or order a product or service. You may also be asked for personal information when you enter into contests or promotions sponsored by us or our partners.
How does Zedcom Media use information it gathers about me?
Zedcom Media collects and uses your name, e-mail address and other personal information to provide you with a product or service that you requested.
How do I unsubscribe from an e-mail newsletter?
Every time we send out one of our newsletters, we include an "unsubscribe" link. Simply click on this link and follow the instructions. You will be automatically removed from that newsletter distribution list.
Does Zedcom Media record information about my computer or my visit?
Zedcom Media collects IP addresses and related information for the purposes of system administration and to create aggregate statistical reports for advertisers. This information cannot identify you personally. Browser information (i.e. the URL of the web page you were just on, the IP address of the computer you are using, your domain type, and your browser version) is automatically recorded as part of transmitting information over the Internet. We may use it to help us display information in the best format for you.
We may develop summary reports for advertisers, to help them better understand our audience and provide advertisements that are more likely to be of interest to you. For example, we may report total number of visitors to our site in general or to specific pages, average length of visit, etc. No identifying data about individuals is reported.
During your visit to our sites, we may record choices you have made and use this to provide more customized content or advertising. The data does not identify you and is not retained after your visit.
What about information on public forums?
Zedcom Media may make chat rooms, forums, message boards and/or news groups available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.
How else can I protect my privacy online?
Generally speaking, whenever you disclose personal information online there is a risk that the information may be intercepted, collected and used. That goes for information disclosed on message boards, in chat areas - or even in e-mail. Zedcom Media is not responsible if that information is intercepted. You transmit information to anyone at your own risk.
You alone are responsible for keeping passwords and information safe. Be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
