Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Zen collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Zen's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Zen's visitors use its website. From time to time, Zen may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Zen also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Zen's websites choose to interact with Zen in ways that require Zen to gather personally-identifying information. In each case, Zen collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Zen. Zen does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Zen may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, Zen does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Zen's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Zen will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Zen discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Zen believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Zen, third parties or the public at large.

Zen takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
