Z’s protects the privacy of its customers.
Z’s Cotton Confections, LLC (“Z’s”, “we” or “us”) recognizes and respects the privacy of the visitors, customers and members to its websites and social media accounts. We want you to understand the types of information we collect and what we do with that information. Z’s operates www.ZsCottonConfections.com and related websites and social media accounts (collectively, the “Sites”).
Sorry kids, you must be 18 years or older and the age of majority in your place of residence to use, subscribe or register as a member. Z’s Sites are general audience sites and we do not knowingly collect, maintain or disclose personal information from or about kids. If you are a parent or guardian of a kid and become aware that your kid has provided personal information to us, please contact us as described in this Privacy Notice and we will take reasonable steps to promptly remove any such information.
Information We Collect
When you use the Sites, Z’s may collect the following types of information:
Information you provide – You may be asked to provide personal data and/or personally identifiable information (“PI”) in order to register for Membership, use certain Products or Services and/or obtain support or information from Z’s. This information may include your name, e-mail address, social media page address (such as Facebook, etc.), blog address, instant messenger user/screen name, and user/screen name of those to whom you send content. Please remember that any information that you disclose in public areas of the Sites becomes public information. You should exercise caution when deciding whether or not to disclose certain information about yourself on the Sites. Other Users may also provide us with your e-mail address and/or user/screen name in order to send you content. We also collect other profile data including but not limited to personal interests, gender and age in order to, among other things, provide you with personalized product or gift recommendations.
Log information – When you visit and use the Sites, the servers we use automatically record information that your computer’s browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your computer’s browser.
User communications – When you send e-mail to Z’s, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our Sites. Remember that anything posted to a public area of the Sites can be accessed by the public, and can be used by those people to send you unsolicited communications.
It’s Your Information, You Own It
You own your PI, and we own what you decide to share with us. If you'd like us to destroy this PI, we will remove your Member information at any time if you request it by e-mailing us at email@example.com
We'll do our best to remove any PI that is personally attributable to you within 30 days. Please be aware that even after your information is deactivated, deleted, edited, or modified for any reason, some or all of your information may still remain visible and/or searchable on or through Z’s Sites and/or the World Wide Web, including but not limited to any information that has been: a) incorporated into others user’s content, comments, postings, submissions, and/or research; b) copied, stored or disseminated by other users; or c) shared or disseminated by you or others such as in public tags or public postings. In addition, a request to remove PI from our databases may not result in the removal of information collected and already put in aggregate form or information that cannot be removed using reasonably commercial efforts. Moreover, please be aware that even after you deactivate or modify/edit your Membership, your information, including but not limited to your purchases and shared content, may not be deleted in its entirety from our servers, as we may, but are not obligated to, retain backup copies of your information, including PI on our servers or databases (and/or any authorized third party servers or databases we use).
Ways We Use Information
Note that in the event we do collect PI and provide it to third party agents, vendors or contractors of Z’s (“Contractors”), we take reasonably commercial effort to ensure access is granted only upon condition that the PI is kept confidential and is used only for carrying out the services these Contractors are performing for Z’s.
In all cases where PI is collected, we may use this information to forward to you products and services that we believe you will find helpful as well as for some of the purposes set forth herein. At any time, you may opt out of receiving these promotional communications as set forth herein.
We may use PI in several ways. First, we may strip the information collected of PI and create Aggregate Information based upon all users of a particular site. This “Aggregate Information” (such as user/usage statistics, database usage, number of logins, number of profiles accessed, etc.) which will not contain PI, may be used for a number of purposes including providing information to content providers; ensuring compliance with license and royalty agreements, providing the Sites and services to our customers, and internal site management and administration purposes primarily by our technical support staff and Contractors. In some cases, our marketing staff, content providers, and/or Contractors will be provided Aggregate Information to evaluate the effectiveness of certain services and product offerings and to improve the user experience, process and fulfill transactions and providing you with information about our services.
We may also use your PI to track, generally, your browsing habits, pages used or accessed, keywords and search terms, geographic location for marketing or other purposes and then send you information about our products and services.
In addition to the above, Z’s may process your PI for the following purposes:
California has passed legislation requiring certain specific disclosures be made available to California residents who use the Internet and provide information that may be used for marketing purposes. That legislation requires any business that discloses a customer's PI to any third party for direct marketing purposes to provide the customer a method for obtaining the names, addresses and certain other specified details of anyone who might have received that PI.
We would like to offer this option to any Member, regardless of whether or not you are a California resident. As such, you may request this information from us by writing to:
Z’s Cotton Confections, LLC
125 Rickey Blvd.
P.O. Box 1264
Bear, Delaware 19701
Attention: Privacy Rights
or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also reach us by telephone at 570-301-2052. Please note, we are not obligated to respond to more than one such request from you per calendar year.
Member profile information including members’ pictures and/or screen/user names, if available, may be displayed to people in order to facilitate user interaction in the Z’s interactive communities. Email addresses may be used for the purposes of inviting new friends to the Sites, and to send notifications related to the Sites. With the exception of inviting friends, adding friends and notifications, a Member’s email address is not shared or displayed to people within a Member’s personal network. Members within a personal network communicate with each other through the Sites, without disclosing their email addresses. Members’ full names are not directly revealed to other Members.
We may also use a Member’s email address to send updates, a newsletter, gifts, rewards, or news regarding the Sites.
Promotions, Rewards, Sweepstakes and Contests
If you chose to enter a promotion, rewards program, sweepstakes, or contest hosted on our Sites or sponsored by Z’s and/or one of our partners, we (and/or our promotional partner) may ask for your name, address and email address. You may be asked to provide additional information or to answer certain questions, some of which may be optional, in order to participate. We and/or our partner may contact you in connection with a particular rewards program or promotion, such as a sweepstakes or contest, in order to update you of your status, administer the rewards program or promotion, let you know that a promotion has ended, and for other purposes. Promotions that are hosted on the Sites may be sponsored by Z’s, may be co-sponsored by Z’s and another company, or may be sponsored by companies other than Z’s. Some or all of the data collected during a promotion may be shared with the sponsor(s) or companies indicated on the entry form. We may use third-party companies to generate and manage some of our promotional campaigns or rewards programs. We may share with these companies information about those visitors to our web site who participate in the promotional campaigns and rewards programs. This sharing is for the purpose of targeting future campaigns, improving our rewards program and upgrading visitor information used in reporting statistics.
Third-Party Advertising and Third Party Websites
Z’s is not responsible for the privacy policies of websites and services to which the Sites link, or of which the Sites or Service are a part. If you provide any information to such third parties, different rules regarding the collection and use of your personal information may apply. We strongly suggest you review such third party's privacy policies before providing any data to them.
Security & Limitation of Liability
We know that you may have additional questions regarding the privacy of your information when you access the Sites. Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com
