What personally identifiable information does Zift Solutions collect from you?

We gather personal information when you register. During registration, Zift Solutions may ask for some or all of the following information: your name, address, city, state, postal code, email address, telephone, country, username, password, and your permission to contact you with relevant updates about our products and services.

After you register you are no longer anonymous to Zift Solutions and are given a Zift Solutions ID that allows you to take full advantage of Zift Solutions’s Web site and other offerings. We store information that we collect through the Internet or by telephone, and log files to create a profile of our users. A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users that details their viewing and services preferences. Consequently, collected information is tied to the user’s personally identifiable information to provide offers and improve the content of our Web site for the user. This profile is used to tailor a user’s visit to our Web site, and to direct pertinent marketing promotions to them. User’s can opt-out of the receipt of such marketing materials at any time. We do not share your personally identifiable profile with other third parties. Your profile information is shared in aggregated form only.

Further, like most standard Internet site servers, we use log files. These include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer our Web site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Log files are not linked to personally identifiable information in our database, except as entered by the user during registration.

In addition, we might ask you for personal information if you report a problem with one of our sites or services. If you contact Zift Solutions or if we contact you, we might keep a record of that correspondence. Zift Solutions also occasionally asks users to complete surveys that we use for research purposes. Wherever Zift Solutions collects personal information we make an effort to include a link to this Privacy Notice.
