1. What Personal Information About Customers Does ZED USA Gather?
information we learn from customers helps us personalize and
continually improve your experience with our Services. Here are the
types of information we gather:
Information You Give Us:
We collect, maintain and use information you give us as necessary to enhance and provide quality service and products. You provide us with information when you search, buy, participate in a contest or questionnaire, or communicate with customer service. For example, you provide information when you search for a product; make an order; communicate with us by phone, e-mail, or otherwise; complete a questionnaire or a contest entry form; or apply for a job with us. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name, phone number and credit card information.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Examples of the information we collect and analyze include the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; purchase history; the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through, and from our Web site; and products you viewed or searched for and phone number used to call our 800 number.
If you chose to receive emails from us, we may send you emails describing special offers or services. At any time, if you do not want to receive future emails from us, please let us know by emailing email@example.com
Information from Other Sources:
For reasons such as improving personalization of our service (for example, providing better product recommendations or special offers that we think will interest you), we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. We also sometimes receive updated delivery and address information from our shippers or other sources so that we can correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily.
2. What about Cookies?
are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard
drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize
visitors’ preferences, record session information, such as
items that consumers add to their shopping cart, record user-specific
information on what pages users access or visit, and record past
activity on a site in order to provide better service when visitors
return to our sites.
The "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.
3. Does ZED USA Share the Information It Receives?
about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are
not in the business of selling it to others. ZED USA customers must
opt to share their information. If you have opted to share your
information, we only share information with ZED USA business partners
who also respect privacy concerns.
We may release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of ZED USA, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, sending e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
In the event that ZED USA is acquired or acquires another company, customer information will be one of the transferred assets.

After verification of the information, we will delete the information from our records.
