Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated as you make full use of the website zwickysoft.com. This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.

  3. How your information is used
  4. Who is collecting your information
  5. With whom your information may be shared

What personally identifiable information does this site collect from me ?

We endeavour to collect as little personally identifiable information as possible. However, use of the online forum on our site requires the disclosure of some personal information when you register. During registration you are asked for your email address.

Wherever we collect personal information we make an effort to include a link to this Privacy Policy on that page.

What are cookies and how does this site use them ?

As part of offering and providing customisable and personalised services, the site uses cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. All sites on zwickysoft.com where you are prompted to login or that are customisable require that you accept cookies. (See "What are my choices regarding collection, use and distribution of my information?" for more information on cookies.)

Generally, we use cookies to:

  1. Streamline your experience with the website through use of the forum. This cookie is set when you register or "Sign In" and is modified when you "Sign Out" of our services.
  2. We do not track or monitor audience size and forum usage.
  3. We may collect other personally identifiable information in order to track usage of the site, including approximate geography, language, and computer hardware identification.

How does this site use my information ?

We currently do not utilise, parse, or analyse any personally identifiable information gathered on zwickysoft.com. We reserve the right to change this behaviour and use of information in the future in order to provide you, the user, with a customised browsing experience. This includes personalisation services, interactive communications, and many other types of services, all of which are completely free to you. In order to provide services free of charge, we may display advertisements. By knowing a little about you, we are able to deliver more relevant advertisements and content, and hence better service, to you.

Who is collecting information ?

When you are using this site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with this site alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise. If data is being collected and/or maintained by any company other than us, you will be notified prior to the time of the data collection or transfer. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular service.

Please be aware that advertisers or Web sites that have links on our site may collect personally identifiable information about you. The information practices of those Web sites linked to zwickysoft.com are not covered by this privacy statement.

With whom do you share my information ?

As a general rule, we will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under court order or subpoena.

We may also disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms and Conditions of Use or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.

What are my choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of my information ?

You have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those zwickysoft.com Services that require registration in order to participate.

We do not sell or rent user information to anyone. We will notify you at the time of data collection or transfer if your data will be shared with a third party and you will always have the option of not permitting the transfer. If you do not wish to allow your data to be shared, you can choose not to use a particular service or not to participate in certain promotions or contests.

What is your policy on allowing me to update, correct, or delete my personally identifiable information ?

You may edit your account information at any time by using your User ID and password.

What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of my information ?

Your account information is password protected so that you and only you have access to this personal information. You may edit your account information by using your User ID and password.

We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

What else should I know about my privacy ?

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
