We reserve the right to modify or amend the terms of our Privacy Policy from time to time and to provide notice of such modifications. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of notice of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.

  1. Contact.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, don’t see your concerns addressed here, or wish to make changes to any personal information we have collected, you may contact us at info@zapposbaytobreakers.com.

  1. Information We May Collect.

Except as disclosed below, we don’t sell, barter, give away, or rent your personal information.

(a) Personal Information. Use of certain features of the Website may require that you provide certain personally identifiable information, in other words, information that identifies or describes you, such as your name, email address, telephone numbers, address, zip code, age, and gender (“personal information”). We also may collect and store personal information about you that we receive from other sources, e.g. the information we receive from ZOZI when you register or from partners when you participate in certain promotions.

(b) Anonymous Information. Even if you don’t explicitly provide personal information to us, when you interact with the Website, we may collect certain non-personal information. For example, our servers keep an activity log that tracks all visitors to the Website. The information in the activity log is anonymous and therefore does not identify you individually. The anonymous information our server collects may include among other data: your IP address, your registered domain or home server, time of access, date of access, web page(s) visited, number of clicks, software crash reports, type of browser used, session identification number, search terms, search results, access times and referring addresses.

(c) Cookies and Spyware. We do not install spyware on your computer, nor do we use spyware to retrieve information from your computer. However, like many websites, we may use “cookies”, which are small text files that are stored on your computer or equipment when you visit certain online pages that record your preferences. We use cookies to track your use of our Website and its features. We may also use cookies to monitor traffic, improve the Website and make it easier and/or more relevant for your use. You may occasionally get cookies from companies with links on our Website. We do not control these cookies, and these cookies are not subject to our Privacy Policy. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but, if you prefer, you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. For more information on cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information provided by the Interactive Advertising Bureau at www.allaboutcookies.org.

(d) Google Analytics. We use Google Analytics on our Website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google. Google Analytics uses cookies to collect anonymous traffic data to help us analyze how users use the Website. The information generated by a cookie about your use of the Website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Website, compiling reports on site activity for us and providing other services relating to site activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. By using the Website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

(e) No Information Collected From Children. Our Website is not directed to children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age. If you are under 13 years of age you should not use the Website, and under no circumstances should you send information about yourself to us. If we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information, we will immediately delete that child’s information from the Website.

  1. How We May Use Your Information.

Except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we do not use or disclose information about your individual visits to our Website or your personal information collected online to any parties other than to service providers, affiliates or those with whom we partner without your consent.

When you submit personal information to us, we may use your personal information to contact you, and we may provide it to certain third parties for marketing or promotional purposes as provided herein.

(c) Use of Anonymous Information. We may use anonymous information to help us determine how people use parts of the Website and who our users are so we can improve our Website. We may also use anonymous information to provide information in aggregated form to our partners and other third parties about how our users collectively use the Website. We may also use or share anonymous information (or other information, other than personal information) in any other manner that we decide is appropriate or necessary.

(d) Third-Parties. We may occasionally have third party representatives, agents, affiliates, service providers and partners that perform functions on our behalf or with our authorization, such as event registration, marketing, analytics, promotions, etc. These entities may have access to your personal information but only as needed to perform their services.
