Zweena® Privacy Policy for Personal Data Collected at Zweena Website

This policy is updated and effective as of February 1, 2014

The privacy of your personal information is important to and will be respected by Zweena. We are providing you with our Privacy Policy so that you will understand our commitment to you and your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes what information we may collect about you; how we use your information; how we protect it; and what choices you have on how that information is used. This Privacy Policy governs the use of information at this website and others owned and operated by Zweena. If you have registered to be a Zweena Participant, this Privacy Policy should be read in conjunction with our Terms of Use and the Participation Agreement. Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to online activities. Other activities or interactions with Zweena may be governed by different privacy terms. You will be provided with information about those other terms in the Zweena Participation Agreement.

By using our site, you consent to the collection and use of the information as set forth in this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use.

This Privacy Policy may be revised periodically so we recommend that you read our Privacy Policy whenever you visit this Site so that you are aware of any changes. When our Privacy Policy changes in significant ways, we will make every effort to notify you of the changes. Minor changes to the policy may occur that will not affect our use of individually identifiable or personal health information that you have disclosed. We will only use personal information in the manner described in the Privacy Policy in effect when the information was collected from you. If we determine it would be preferable to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will provide notice and obtain your consent, when appropriate. At that time you will be given the choice to “opt-in” for any additional uses or disclosures of your personally identifiable information that you have made to us prior to the change in our policy. We will not use your information in this alternate way without your consent.

When we refer to ourselves as “we” or “Zweena,” we mean our entire company and our agents. We may share information among companies that we control or with companies working for us, but all information we share will always be protected under the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Pixel-tags or web beacons are similar in function to a cookie, though they are more difficult to detect. We may use pixel-tags or web beacons to measure the effectiveness and/or traffic on the Site. They are used to pass certain information to our servers to personalize the Site and to track usage navigation through the Site. Web beacons may sometimes be included in e-mail messages from Zweena in order to determine which e-mail messages were opened and to note whether an e-mail message was acted upon.

We may also share your personally identifiable information with our contractors, agents or business partners in order that they may perform services for us, or as may be required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations. We require all third parties doing work for Zweena to comply with our Privacy Policy. In addition, we may conduct research on user’s demographics, interests and behavior based upon information provided to us during your use of our Site or our Services. We may combine your information with information collected from other individuals to produce anonymous, aggregated statistical information.

We have a firewall, encryption, and other technology to attempt to safeguard your personally identifiable information, however we cannot guarantee that it is completely secure from people who might attempt to evade security measures or intercept transmissions over the Internet. Zweena has physical and managerial procedures to prevent individuals from accessing the data base center without authorization. These data centers are designed to be physically secure and protected from unauthorized access by unauthorized persons.

We also protect your personally identifiable information by requiring, that all employees and others who have access to or are associated with the processing of your data, respect your confidentiality.

Visitors should be aware that it is not possible to remove from servers each and every record of the information you have provided to Zweena. The need to back up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form. Nevertheless, we promise that upon receiving your request, Zweena will delete all personally identifiable information stored in the databases it actively uses for research and daily business activities, or stored in other readily searchable media. In addition, we will use commercially reasonable efforts not to disclose any personally identifiable information stored in a non-erasable format after receiving your request for removal, except as required by law or court order.
