Thank you for visiting Zuko.com. Your privacy is important to us. To
better protect your privacy, this notice explains our information
practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is
collected and used by Zuko.com.
The Information We Collect
Through the Zuko.com website, you can view our products, request information, express an opinion, or subscribe to our online newsletter (if we chose to publish one). You are able to visit and view much of this website without providing any personally identifiable information. Sometimes, however, we do need your personally identifiable information to provide you with information on any of the products and/or services that you request. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected at Zuko.com include, but are not limited to: name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, and information about your interests in a variety of topics or your use of various products, programs, or services.
We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit many of our web pages such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.
How We Use the Information
We may use the information you provide about yourself to fulfill your requests for information on products or services, or to respond to your inquiries on various topics. We may also use this information to offer you products, services or announce special promotions that we believe may be of interest to you.
We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our publication and/or website. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage.
We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request.
Agents and contractors of Zuko.com who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for Zuko.com
Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Notice. Inadvertent disclosures may result, for example, when third parties misrepresent their identities in asking the site for access to personally identifiable information about themselves for purposes of correcting possible factual errors in the data.
All associates or employees of Zuko.com and E'Media Inc. operate under strict guidelines with regard to emailing practices.
We do not tolerate and we are never involved in the following:
- Opt-out email: The ongoing sending of emails to individuals, with the onus upon them to unsubscribe.
- Bulk email: The practice of sending out unsolicited emails to large numbers of recipients.
- The acquisition of mailing lists from other companies or individuals.
- The sale or passing on of mailing lists to other companies or individuals.
Our intention is do our part in raising the level of professional accountability in internet marketing. As such, we only use “Permission-based” (Opt-IN) email.
Simply stated this means that you will only receive email from us, if you have first given us your permission to send you email, and you will also have the right to opt-out (unsubscribe) at any time you may choose.
We Never Send Unsolicited Email.
If it appears that you have received an unsolicited email from us, it is very likely a ‘forged email address’ (an email deceptively manipulated to appear as though it came from us.) Rest assured however, that it is not from us.
We recommend deleting such email immediately without ever opening it.
