2. Information Gathered
Urban Zen gathers personal information about visitors to the Site (the “Site Visitors”) from personal information that individual Site Visitors provide when using the Site (including purchasing products or services or donating money through the Site) or registering for full access to the Site or to use one or more of our services, including without limitation our forums, blogs or message boards, or when contacting UZ through the site or UZ’s e-mail addresses. In addition, user information may be aggregated for tracking data derived by tallying and identifying users’ page views throughout our Site, by depositing and tracking cookies, by logging IP addresses, identifying browser type, and through other technologies. Such information enables us to better tailor our content to our Site Visitors’ needs and to help advertisers and partners better understand the demographics of our audience. More specifically, UZ may gather user information through the following processes:
General Data Collection
To enhance your experience with our Site, some of our webpages may use “cookies.” Cookies are small text files containing information such as your preferences and other information, which UZ uses to make using the Site more enjoyable. Cookies may be used to store user information such as your user ID and login where available, and/or other information including the number and nature of pages visited by Site Visitors.
UZ may provide message boards, blogs and other forums on our Site for discussing various topics (collectively, the “Forums”). Although any Site Visitor may read postings in a Forum, only registered Site Visitors can make posts. Please note that information you post to a Forum will be available for any user of that service to read, and is therefore no longer private.
If you purchase products or services or donate money on our Site, UZ may collect additional information from you, such as your address, phone number, payment information, or shipping information. UZ will not release payment information to third parties except as necessary to complete a transaction between you and such third party, or to otherwise fulfill your order. Credit card transactions are handled by a third-party service provider, which receives the credit card number and other personal information to verify the credit card number and process transactions.
We use Authorize.Net for credit card processing services in relation to the Site. The Authorize.Net Payment Gateway manages the complex routing of sensitive customer information through the credit card and electronic check processing networks (see an online payments diagram). The company adheres to strict industry standards for payment processing, including:
· 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology for secure Internet Protocol (IP) transactions.
· Industry leading encryption hardware and software methods and security protocols to protect customer information.
· Compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard.
Do Not Track
You may have activated your Web browser’s “do not track” signal or another mechanism through which you exercised your preference regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third-party Web sites or online services. We will honor your preferences indicated by such mechanisms by using our reasonable efforts to prevent such sites and services from collecting your information while you are on our site.
3. Use And Disclosure Of Information
Your information may be shared with external third party shippers. These shippers will use such information to fulfill a potential transaction you may have requested.
Your information may be shared with UZ’s joint venturers, sponsors, including for-profit and non-profit sponsors, partners, donors, and licensees (collectively, “UZ’s Partners”) in order to provide you additional products or services. The information UZ collects may be combined with information collected by UZ’s Partners. Additionally, UZ may use your information for other non-profit or for-profit ventures launched either by UZ itself or in conjunction with one of UZ’s Partners.
UZ may work with third parties who provide services which may include website hosting, order processing and fulfillment, credit card clearance, e-commerce affiliation, security, data analysis, emailing, and other services of an administrative nature. Personal information, including financial information, may be shared with such third parties for the purpose of providing such services. UZ will seek to impose confidentiality obligations on such service providers.
