Privacy Policy

ZuuKeeper is dedicated to safeguarding your privacy and ensuring that all of our users have a secure online experience. As a result, we’ve created this policy to help you understand how we collect, use, communicate, disclose, and use personal information. Our privacy statement is summarized below. Neither we nor our platform partner (Optimize LLC) gather personally identifying information about users for the purpose of displaying advertisements through ZuuKeeper. The Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB), a trade organization for the Internet marketing sector, defines personally identifiable information as “information that can be linked back to a particular user and provides personal information such as name, address, phone number, and so on.” Simply stated, it is your personal information that enables you to be identified as a person, not an anonymous profile. We are aware that the information we get from individuals who do direct business with us is often very private and may contain credit card information, FTP information, and other information. This information will be retained by our organization and distributed to employees on a need-to-know basis only (for example, the programmer working on your site will need FTP access to your server). We shall use your personal information only for internal reasons and will never sell or share it with any third-party organization for marketing purposes. We do not collect any personally identifying information on our wholly-owned websites unless it is explicitly requested for business reasons. ZuuKeeper and our platform partner do not collect or utilize information on health problems or treatments for the purpose of advertising. In terms of ad distribution, each of our profiles is anonymous and refers to computers and mobile devices, not particular people. We utilize non-personally identifiable information to show ads that are more likely to be relevant to users than those that we could display without it. For instance, if we have non-personally identifiable information about a user who recently looked for flat-panel TVs, we may use that information to determine whether or not to show an advertisement for a new TV when that user requests a video on a ZuuKeeper site. However, we never know the user’s name, address, phone number, or any other personally-identifying information—the non-personally identifiable information we collect is limited to the IP address and recent activity of the web browser software, to the extent that that software supports cookies. Additionally, we may utilize anonymous information to decide whether or not to display an advertisement to a user… and which advertisement to serve. For instance, we may use a cookie to identify whether a user has previously seen specific advertising, preventing our server from delivering the same advertisement a second time. If an advertiser requests that we provide a series of ads in a certain order, we may use a cookie to record that the first ad was given to a particular user, so that our server knows to display the second ad in the series the next time that person visits a ZuuKeeper site. Cookies are used to gather non-personally identifiable information. Cookies are tiny text files containing a string of characters that are put on your hard disk by an Internet server. When your browser is closed, a session ID cookie expires. A persistent cookie is one that stays on your computer’s hard disk for an extended length of time. ZuuKeeper and our platform partner utilize these permanent cookies to keep the non-personally identifiable information mentioned before, as well as inferences we draw about a user’s potential interests based on that non-personally identifiable information. The cookie used by ZuuKeeper’s platform partner has no adverse effect on your computer and does not disclose your identify to us. This is not a piece of spyware or adware. Spyware or adware is a generic term that refers to a software program installed on your computer for the aim of monitoring your Internet or general computer activities. We do not install any software on your computer, and we have no way of monitoring or tracking your normal computer or Internet use. Cookies may be prevented simply by opting out or changing your browser’s settings. Traditionally, cookies expire after 30 days, whereas data gathered for advertising reasons is retained for a maximum of two years. ZuuKeeper and our platform partner may contract with third parties to display ads and perform analytic services on our behalf. These third parties may collect personal information from you, as well as information about your use of the ZuuKeeper site and other websites, via the use of cookies, web beacons, and other technologies. This information may be used by ZuuKeeper, its platform partner, and third parties to analyze and monitor data, assess the popularity of certain content, provide advertising and content tailored to your interests on websites, and get a better understanding of your online behavior. Please be aware that our website may include links to and from other websites on the internet, and that ZuuKeeper or our platform partner is not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of such websites. Our visitors are encouraged to be mindful when they leave our site and to read the privacy policies of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement is solely applicable to data collected by ZuuKeeper and our platform partner. ZuuKeeper and our platform partner may share user information with third-party suppliers, consultants, and other service providers that need access to your information in order to do work on our behalf. Additionally, we may share information when we believe disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, to enforce applicable user agreements or policies, or to protect ZuuKeeper, our platform partner, our users, or the general public from harm or illegal activity. Due to the fact that ZuuKeeper and our platform partner do not collect personally identifiable information from users throughout our network, we are unable to link any non-personally identifiable information in our possession to any particular individual. As a result, we are unable to comply with requests from an individual to remove non-personally identifiable information on that individual. Please check your web browser’s “help” file or menu for information on deleting any cookies that may have been put on your hard drive by ZuuKeeper or our platform partner. By clicking here or on the “Opt-Out” link at the bottom of this page, you may opt-out of ZuuKeeper and its platform partner’s usage of cookies (used to provide more relevant advertising). This will install an opt-out cookie on your browser, indicating to our servers that no further ZuuKeeper cookies should be delivered. This will disable both cookie collecting and targeting by ZuuKeeper. You should keep in mind that opting out does not prevent you from seeing ZuuKeeper online. However, these advertisements will not be targeted by us as an individual vendor based on your online user interest profile. Other third parties will continue to gather anonymous segmentation data, but it will not be utilized for targeting by ZuuKeeper or our platform partner. By visiting and following the instructions, you may opt-out of getting cookies from some third-party partners that are Network Advertising Initiative members. Although the majority of web browsers are initially configured to allow cookies, you may configure your browser to reject them or to signal when a cookie is being sent. You may delete and/or deactivate cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies by following the instructions given in the “help” file or menu of your Internet web browser. However, keep in mind that certain features of a ZuuKeepers site may not work correctly if cookies are deactivated. We collect email addresses from those interested in subscribing to our newsletter. These emails are kept private and are used only to deliver our newsletter and other marketing materials to our subscribers. We are dedicated to operating our company in line with these principles to safeguard and preserve the confidentiality of personal information.
