At usZipData we respect your right to privacy and we understand that, as a visitor to the usZipData website, you prefer to control your own personal information and preferences. For this reason, we may ask you to register or to provide personal information and preferences when you visit certain areas of the usZipData website, download free software, request information, or subscribe to our newsletter.

We will guard the personal information you share with us to ensure the content, services, and advertising that we provide on the usZipData website are always tailored to your current, designated preferences.

When you provide usZipData with your name (or alias), e-mail address, mailing address, or telephone number, and you do not 'opt out,' usZipData and usZipData representatives and affiliates may use the provided information to alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information, classes, new services, and other usZipData information.

If you do not want usZipData or usZipData representatives to contact you, you may "opt out" of this preference at any time, whether you're online or contacting usZipData directly. As part of your preference flexibility, you'll always have the option to opt back in and have usZipData contact you based on your previous or new preferences by logging into your account and editing your membership information.

If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still visit most usZipData websites; however, you will not have access to areas that require personal identification.

Personal information that you post to online forums is accessible by other forum participants.

usZipData Membership

usZipData offers free membership to all usZipData website visitors. In order to establish membership, visitors are requested to provide both personal information and preferences. This information is stored and protected by your user-established Member ID and Password.

There is an additional "Remember me" option. By selecting it, you allow usZipData to store your Member ID and password so you can access certain areas of the website without re-signing in. The sign-in information is stored until you explicitly sign out. It also allows you to return to any usZipData website on subsequent visits without having to re-enter your information. usZipData remembers you by placing a log file (cookie) that contains only enough information to identify you upon return visits. A "cookie" is a small line of text that is stored with your web browser for record-keeping purposes and helps usZipData provide better service to you. Your browser has options to accept, reject, or provide you with notice when a cookie is sent.

No information, other than that found in the Membership cookie, will be accessed by any usZipData system. Access to your membership information always requires both your Member ID and Password.

usZipData also utilizes visitor log files (cookies) and hosted tracking with our website. Once a user enters our site, a cookie follows them through their click stream path. Examples of information being collected by these cookies and the hosted tracking include the number of times a user came to our site(s), and the paths they took to get there. usZipData uses the data collected from website visitor cookies and hosted tracking in aggregate form only and does not collect any personally identifiable information. Use of this information helps us better understand what users are seeking and learning at our website(s) and helps us identify potential navigation issues.

We also gauge effectiveness of our communications by inserting transparent images in our HTML e-mails. These image files are not unique identifiers and do not gather any personally identifiable information. They simply let us know the number of e-mails that have been opened.

How to update your personal information and preferences: You can help usZipData maintain the accuracy of your personal information by notifying us when you change your name, address, title, phone number, e-mail address, or your content preferences. If at any time you wish to update your information or preferences, or you prefer to stop receiving communication from usZipData, you may do so online at any time.

How usZipData will protect your personal information

usZipData will always protect the personal information that you share with us. usZipData stores information internally in a controlled, secure environment. If, for example, you make a purchase online, we route all transactions through SSL (Secure Socket Layers) and will process your credit card number only to secure your current payment. The SSL transaction does not retain your credit card number subsequent to the transaction at hand and will not use the number for marketing purposes.

usZipData does not sell or rent customer lists.

Of course, usZipData may disclose personal information if legally required to do so or if necessary to comply with legal process served on usZipData, to protect usZipData's rights or property or to take emergency action to protect the personal safety of users of the usZipData website or the public.
