This document was last updated on 23rd September 2010.
1. ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
Subzin is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Statement sets forth our current privacy practices with regard to the information we collect when you or your computer interact with our website. By accessing www.subzin.com, you acknowledge and fully understand Subzin’s Privacy Statement and freely consent to the information collection and use practices described in this Website Privacy Statement.
2. PARTICIPATING MERCHANT POLICIES
Related services and offerings with links from this website, including vendor sites, have their own privacy statements that can be viewed by clicking on the corresponding links within each respective website. Online merchants and others who participate in Subzin’s services are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude towards consumer privacy. However, since we do not have direct control over the policies or practices of participating merchants and other third parties, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of those sites. We recommend and encourage that you always review the privacy policies of merchants and other third parties before you provide any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties.
3. INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
Subzin collects certain information from and about its users three ways: directly from web pages, the user, and cookies.
a. Web Pages.
When you visit our Website, we may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include:
– Your Internet protocol address.
– The kind of browser or computer you use.
– Number of links you click within the site.
– State or country from which you accessed the site.
– Date and time of your visit.
– Web page you linked to our site from.
– Pages you viewed on the site.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and providing personalized functionality.
Subzin reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies using our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into subzin.com a site that relies on third-party cookies).
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Website.
c. Personal Information Users
Visitors to our website can register in order to upload contents onto the Subzin’s database. When you register, we may request some personal information, for now limited to the user email, but in a near future it could be completed with data like address, email, telephone number or facsimile number, account number and other relevant information. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.
We will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to third parties without your permission except to the extent necessary including, but not limited to:
– To protect ourselves from liability,
– To respond to legal process or comply with law, or
– In connection with a merger, acquisition, or liquidation of the company.
4. ACCESSING WEB ACCOUNT INFORMATION
We will provide you with the means to ensure that personally identifiable information in your web account file is correct and current. You may review this information by contacting us here. At any time, you can contact us in order to require the permanent blockage of any personal data contained in our systems, causing the lost of any service provided by Subzin. In any case the personal data could be retained if there are legal statements requiring this information to be maintained in Subzin’s database for a certain time.
5. PERSONAL INFORMATION RELATED TO SUBZIN’ SEARCH SERVICES
Even though Subzin’ Search Services are not intended to disclosure personal information, the information uploaded in Subzin’s databases by certain users could contain personal information. The reason is that Subzin’s is user-centric, and the information uploaded by Subzin’s users is not previously reviewed or manipulated by Subzin, therefore personal information could be disclosed through Subzin’ Search Services without the knowledge of Subzin staff. If that were the case, upon receiving a removal query in Subzin’s administrator mailbox, such information would be removed after evaluation, as soon as possible and permanently from Subzin’s databases, blocking any further visualization through Subzin’ Search Services. It must be understood that this personal information removal service is restricted to search services accessed directly through www.subzin.com or subzin.com. Therefore Subzin is not responsible of third party information manipulation, storing or catching activities over Subzin-rendered services.
6. CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT
Subzin has the discretion to occasionally update this privacy statement. When we do, we will also revise the “updated” date at the top of this Privacy page. We encourage you to periodically review this privacy statement to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the service constitutes your agreement to this privacy statement and any updates.
7. CONTACTING US
If you have questions regarding our Privacy Statement, its implementation, failure to adhere to this Privacy Statement and/or our general practices, please contact us here. We will use our best efforts to promptly respond and resolve any problems or questions.
