2. Collection of personal information
To serve you better and understand your needs and interests, Zya collects, exports, and uses personal information with notice and consent, along with required filings with data protection authorities, when and if applicable. For example, when you order products or services, request information, subscribe to marketing or support materials, register yourself or your Zya products or services, use Zya products or services, operate on the Zya Website or environment, enter contests or participate in surveys, upload content onto third party sites, or apply for a job at Zya, we will ask you to provide personal information to complete these transactions. The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include contact information such as your name, address, telephone number, and email address; financial information such as your credit card number; and other unique information such as user IDs and passwords, billing and transaction information, product and service preferences, contact preferences, educational and employment background, and job interest data.
If you post, comment or share personal information, including photographs, to any public forum on the Services, social network, blog, or other such forum, please be aware that any personal information you submit can be read, viewed, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to contact you, send you unsolicited messages, or for purposes that neither you nor Zya have control over. Zya is not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums. In addition to the information you provide, Zya, as well as any third-party advertisers and/or service providers, may also collect information in connection with the Services, or during your visit to a Zya Website, or a website “powered by” another company on behalf of Zya, through our Automatic Data Collection Tools, which include web beacons, cookies, embedded web links, and other information-gathering tools. These tools collect certain traffic information regarding your use of the Services or that your browser sends to a website, such as your browser type and language, access times, and the address of the website from which you arrived. They may also collect your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for the computer, mobile device, technology, or other device (collectively “Device”) you may use to access the software application or Zya website, information about your Internet Protocol (IP) address, click stream behavior (i.e. the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with the Services), and product information. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Devices use Device Identifiers to communicate on the Internet, allowing users to browse and shop. Zya may also use some of these Automatic Data Collection Tools in connection with certain emails sent from Zya and therefore may collect information using these tools when you open the email or click on a link contained in the email. To learn more, read “How Zya uses automatic data collection tools”.
Zya may also collect information from commercially available sources that it deems credible. Such information may include your name, address, email address, preferences and demographic data. For example, if you are on another web site and you opt-in to receive information from Zya, that website will forward to Zya your e-mail address and other information about you so that we may contact you as requested. You may also choose to participate in third party applications or features (such as one of our Facebook or Twitter applications or a similar application or feature on a third party web site) through which you allow Zya to collect and share (or the third party to collect and share) information about you, including Personal Information. If you access the Services through a third-party connection or log-in, Zya may also collect your user ID and/or username associated with that third-party service, and any information you have made public in connection with that service or which the third party shares with partner services. In addition, Zya may receive information about you if other users of a third party web site give Zya access to their profiles and you are one of their “connections” or information about you is otherwise accessible through your “connections” webpage, profile page, or similar page on a social networking or other third party website or interactive service. The collection and use of this information is pursuant to such third party’s information collection practices, which are typically outlined in a policy like this one, provided on the third party’s website or application.
Zya also may supplement the information it collects about you through the Services with other information from third parties in order to enhance Zya’s ability to serve you, to tailor content to you and to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that Zya believes may be of interest to you. Zya may combine the information it receives from these third parties with information Zya collects through the Services. In those cases, Zya will apply this Policy to any Personal Information received, unless Zya has disclosed otherwise.
3. How we use your information
The information Zya collects to understand your needs and interests helps Zya deliver a consistent and personalized experience. For example, Zya may use your information to:

4. How we share your information
The Services are a social experience. Accordingly, Zya may share your information with third parties for a variety of purposes.
Zya retains service providers and suppliers to deliver complete products, services and customer solutions, to assist with the functionality and services associated with the Software and the Application, and to assist Zya with marketing, communication, initiatives as well as providing the Zya services and products. These providers and suppliers include, for example, credit card processors, providers of customer support and live-help, marketing, email service providers, automated data processors, customer insight and social media analytics providers, and shipping agents. Zya also shares personal information with its strategic partners for the purposes of, among other things, effective distribution and sales of the Software, the Application, and other Zya products.
Zya may also share your personal information, including any names used by you, including your professional name and user name, likeness, image, voice and biographical information to promote and advertise the Service and products and services located on the Service.

Zya may also share the personal information you provide to Zya with non-Zya third parties without your permission, to: (i) respond to duly authorized information requests of police and governmental authorities; (ii) comply with any law, regulation, subpoena, or court order; (iii) investigate and help prevent security threats, fraud or other malicious activity; (iv) enforce/protect the rights and properties of Zya or its subsidiaries; (v) administer Zya’s obligations under the Terms of Service; or (vi) protect the rights or personal safety of Zya employees and third parties on or using Zya property.
Circumstances may arise where, whether for strategic or other business reasons, Zya decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize businesses in some countries. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or the receipt of it from sellers. It is Zya’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.
5. Children’s privacy
Zya does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13 and does not target its Services to children under 13 years old. We encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online activities and interests. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database and close any account controlled by such child.
6. Your choices and selecting your privacy preferences
Zya gives you the choice of receiving a variety of information that complements our products and services. You can subscribe to receive certain product-specific and service-specific information and also choose to receive Zya general communications. You may also be able to inform Zya of your desire that we not share certain of your information with certain third parties. Delivery of Zya general communications will generally be by email or mobile device, but may also be by postal mail, telephone, or other communication methods, in Zya’s sole discretion.
Subscription communications include email newsletters, software updates, etc., that may be expressly requested by you or which you consented to receive. Zya general communications provide information about products, services, and/or support. This may include new product information, special offers, or invitations to participate in market research.

To unsubscribe from messages delivered to mobile devices, reply to the message with the words “STOP” or “END”.
Return to the web page(s) where you originally registered your preferences and follow the opt-out instructions. Access to many Zya subscriptions is available at the My Account web page.
Write to the Zya Privacy Officer. Be sure to provide your name, relevant contact information, and specific relevant information about the Zya subscriptions that you no longer wish to receive.
Please be aware that when you opt out of receiving certain subscription communications or general communications, it may affect the services you have chosen to receive from Zya where accepting the communications is a condition of receiving the services.
7. Access to and accuracy of your information
Zya strives to keep your personal information accurately recorded. We have implemented technology, management processes and policies to help maintain data accuracy. Zya provides individuals with reasonable access to personal information that they provided to Zya and the reasonable ability to review and correct it or ask for anonymization, blockage, or deletion, as applicable. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as requiring a password and user ID, before granting access to your data. To view and change the personal information that you directly provided to Zya you can return to the Software, the Application, or the web page where you originally submitted your data and follow the instructions on the Software, the Application, or that web page or contact the Zya Privacy Officer.
8. Keeping your personal information secure and disclaimer
Zya takes seriously the trust you place in us. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of the information, Zya utilizes appropriate physical, technical and administrative procedures to safeguard the information we collect.
When collecting or transferring sensitive information such as credit card information we use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. The personal information you provide us is stored on computer systems located in controlled facilities which have limited access. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as credit card number or password) over the internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Credit card numbers are used only for processing payments and are not used for other purposes. As part of real-time payment processing, Zya subscribes to a fraud management service. This service gives you and Zya an extra level of security to guard against credit card fraud and to protect your financial data.
Despite Zya’s efforts to keep your personal information secure, no company can guaranty the security and privacy of its services, information and other data. Accordingly, Zya disclaims and does not represent and warrant that it will be able to maintain your privacy or the security of its data in regard to your personal information. Zya’s privacy policies and procedures are “as is” and Zya makes no representation as to the fitness for a particular purpose or merchantability.

How Zya uses automatic data collection tools
The following sections provide additional information about commonly-used web technology tools.
A “cookie” is a small data file transferred to your computer’s hard drive. Zya or its service providers send cookies when you use the Services, surf our site or sites where our ads appear, make purchases, request or personalize information, or register yourself for certain services. Accepting the cookies used on the Software, our site, sites that are “powered by” another company on Zya’s behalf, or sites where our ads appear may give us access to information about your browsing behavior, which we may use to personalize your experience. Cookies are typically classified as either “session” cookies or “persistent” cookies.
Session cookies do not stay on your computer after you close your browser.
You can find information on popular browsers and how to adjust your cookie preferences at the following websites:
Microsoft Internet Explorer: http://www.microsoft.com/info/cookies.htm
Mozilla Firefox: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/pki/psm/help_21/using_priv_help.html
Google Chrome: http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer.py?answer=95647
Apple’s Safari: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=safari/3.0/en/9277.html
From time to time, Zya will use Flash local shared objects (LSOs) to store Flash content information and preferences. LSOs perform similar functions to HTML browser cookies and deposit small files on your computer, which are commonly called Flash cookies. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies and cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash cookies. To learn more about Flash Cookies and how to manage the related privacy and storage settings, please visit the Adobe Systems website.
The Services may use web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about your website usage and your interaction with email, as well as to measure performance on the Zya website and websites “powered by” another company on Zya’s behalf. A web beacon is an electronic image, called a single-pixel (1x1) or clear GIF. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date of a page viewed, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. Depending on the context, web beacons may also refer to content on a third-party server, and may be used by service providers to deliver relevant advertising to you.
You may be able to disable web beacons in email messages by not downloading images contained in the message you receive (this feature varies depending on the email software used on your personal computer). However, doing this may not always disable a web beacon or other automatic data collection tools in the email message due to specific email software capabilities. For more information about this, please refer to the information provided by your email software or service provider.
If you choose to receive marketing emails or newsletters from Zya as specified in Your choices and selecting your privacy preferences, Zya may automatically collect personal information about you. For example, through web beacons and personalized URLs embedded in these emails or newsletters, Zya can track whether you’ve opened those messages and whether you’ve clicked on links contained within those messages. For more information on embedded web links, see below.
Embedded web links
Emails from Zya, the Software, Zya’s other software products, and promotional icons installed on your device by Zya, may use links designed to lead you to a relevant area on the web, after redirection through Zya’s servers. The redirection system allows Zya to change the destination URL of these links, if necessary, and to determine the effectiveness of our marketing initiatives.
In emails, such web links may also allow Zya to determine whether you have clicked a link in an email, and this information about the interaction may be connected to your personal identity. If you do not want Zya to collect information about the links that you click, you can:
change your choice about how you receive communications from Zya (i.e. choose a text-based version of the message where available) or choose not to click links in an email that Zya sends or in Zya software products
delete the promotional icons installed by Zya on your PC desktop or choose not to click on those
Zya ads and offerings on third-party websites
Zya may contract with service providers to place ads on websites owned by third parties. In addition, some websites may be “powered by” a service provider to provide Zya offers on Zya ’s behalf. These service providers may send cookies from and use web beacons on these third-party websites and on the Zya Website. The cookies and web beacons may enable Zya to collect information about the pages you viewed and the links you clicked.
Zya may use tools to collect information about your experience on the Services. These tools do not involve the use of web beacons or cookies, but record your interaction with the Services as captured by a Zya server. Certain tools, used in some countries, may enable Zya to replay customer Software or web sessions.
Your California Privacy Rights
The following applies solely to California residents who have an established business relationship with Zya. If we collect personal information from you, we may make that personal information available to our affiliated companies or third parties, for their marketing and promotional purposes. If you decide that you do not want us to share your personal information with these companies for their marketing and promotional purposes, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In this email, state whether: (i) you would like to opt out of receiving promotional correspondence from Zya in general, or via email, postal mail, instant messaging, and/or by phone; (ii) you would only like to opt out of Zya newsletters; and/or (iii) you would like Zya to not share your personal information with third parties for their marketing purposes. Your opt out request will be processed within thirty (30) days of the date on which we receive it.
From time to time, Zya may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Services, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Zya Website, how long they stay on that page and which hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. We collect this information through the use of “cookies” and other tracking technologies, which are discussed in greater detail above. We collect this information in order to determine which areas of the Zya Website are most popular and to enhance the Zya Services for visitors. We may group this information into aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the Services to our existing or potential business partners, sponsors, advertisers or other third parties, or in response to a government request. Zya may also group demographic and preferences information and responses to surveys that we collect from visitors into aggregate data for the same purposes. However, please be assured that this aggregate data will in no way personally identify you or any other visitors to the Services.
