Our use of the term Services in this Statement has the same definition as in customer’s applicable Services agreement with us, or the applicable Zone service (“Services”).

This includes sales, marketing, business contact or registration activities conducted by Zone, but does not include any personal information you or your end-users input or upload into the Services.
TYPES OF DATA AND COLLECTION METHODS
Information you provide to us through the Websites: Through your use of the Websites, you may choose to provide us with certain personal information. For example, when you request information, a free product tour, schedule a consultation, use any Chat Now function, subscribe to a mailing list, subscribe to Services, respond to an online survey or otherwise contact us, we usually collect personal information such as your name, e-mail address(es), postal address(es), telephone numbers and any other information you choose to provide.
You can opt out of providing information by not entering it when asked. If information is required in order to allow us to respond to your inquiry, you will receive a notice advising you of this. If you do not provide us with some or all of the requested information we may not be able to provide the requested information or Services to you.

For example, when you visit a Website, we track certain information about your computer and Internet connection, such as the IP address of your computer and/or Internet service provider, the date and time you access the site, the Internet address of websites from which you link to our Websites, the computer technology you are using and your movements and preferences on our site.
We do not deliver third party online advertisements on our Websites, but we may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads for our Services when you access and use other websites, based on the information relating to your access to and use of our Websites, as well as information received from third parties. To do so, these companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser (including through use of pixel tags).
