ZEBRA Consultants is committed to protecting your privacy. Please read the ZEBRA
Consultants Online Privacy Statement below and also any supplemental information
listed to the right for additional details about particular ZEBRA Consultants sites
and services that you may use.
This ZEBRA Consultants Online Privacy Statement applies to data collected by ZEBRA
Consultants through the majority of its Web sites and services, as well as its offline
product support services. It does not apply to those ZEBRA Consultants sites, services
and products that do not display or link to this statement or that have their own
privacy statements. Some products and services mentioned in this statement may not
be available in all markets at this time.
Collection of Your Personal Information
At some ZEBRA Consultants sites, we ask you to provide personal information, such
as your e-mail address, name, home or work address, or telephone number. We may
also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences,
interests and favorites. If you choose to make a purchase or sign up for a paid
subscription service, we will ask for additional information, such as your credit
card number and billing address, which is used to create a ZEBRA Consultants billing
In order to access some ZEBRA Consultants services, you will be asked to sign in
with an e-mail address/username and password. As part of creating your credentials,
you may also be requested to provide questions and secret answers, which we use
to help verify your identity and assist in resetting your password, as well as an
alternate e-mail address. Some services may require added security, and in these
cases, you may be asked to create an additional security key. Finally, a unique
ID number will be assigned to your credentials which will be used to identify your
credentials and associated information.
We may collect information about your interaction with ZEBRA Consultants sites and
services. For example, we may use website analytics tools on our site to retrieve
information from your browser, including the site you came from, the search engine(s)
and the keywords you used to find our site, the pages you view within our site,
your browser add-ons, and your browser's width and height. We may also use technologies,
such as cookies and web beacons (described
below), to collect information about the pages you view, the links you click
and other actions you take on our sites and services. Additionally, we collect certain
standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as
your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring Web site
addresses. We also deliver advertisements (see the
Display of Advertising section below) and provide Web site analytics tools
on non-ZEBRA Consultants sites and services, and we may collect information about
page views on these third party sites as well.
When you receive newsletters or promotional e-mail from ZEBRA Consultants, we may
use web beacons (described below), customized links or similar technologies to determine
whether the e-mail has been opened and which links you click in order to provide
you more focused e-mail communications or other information.
In order to offer you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions
with ZEBRA Consultants, information collected through one ZEBRA Consultants service
may be combined with information obtained through other ZEBRA Consultants services.
We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained from
other companies. For example, we may use services from other companies that enable
us to derive a general geographic area based on your IP address in order to customize
certain services to your geographic area.
Use of Your Personal Information
ZEBRA Consultants collects and uses your personal information to operate and improve
its sites and services. These uses may include providing you with more effective
customer service; making the sites or services easier to use by eliminating the
need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis
aimed at improving our products, services and technologies; and displaying content
and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences. For more
information about the use of information for advertising, see the
Display of Advertising section below.
We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain
mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information
on technical service issues, and security announcements. Some ZEBRA Consultants
services, such as Windows Live Hotmail, may send periodic member letters that are
considered part of the service. We may also occasionally send you product surveys
or promotional mailings to inform you of other products or services available from
ZEBRA Consultants and its affiliates.
Personal information collected on ZEBRA Consultants sites and services may be stored
and processed in Cyprus or any other country in which ZEBRA Consultants or its affiliates,
subsidiaries or service providers maintain facilities. ZEBRA Consultants abides
by the safe harbor framework as set forth by the Cyprus Department of Commerce regarding
the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union.
Sharing of Your Personal Information
Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your personal information
outside of ZEBRA Consultants and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without
your consent. Some ZEBRA Consultants sites allow you to choose to share your personal
information with select ZEBRA Consultants partners so that they can contact you
about their products, services or offers. Other sites do not share your contact
information with third parties for marketing purposes, but instead may give you
a choice as to whether you wish to receive communications from ZEBRA Consultants
on behalf of external business partners about a partner's particular offering (without
transferring your personal information to the third party). See the Communication
Preferences section below for more information.
Some ZEBRA Consultants services may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with
another company. If you register for or use such services, both ZEBRA Consultants
and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf,
such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support,
hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of
our services. Those service providers will be permitted to obtain only the personal
information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the
confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other
purpose. However, for credit card processing, our fraud detection vendors may use
aggregate data to help improve their service. This helps them more accurately detect
fraudulent uses of credit cards. We may access or disclose information about you,
including the content of your communications, in order to: (a) comply with the law
or respond to lawful requests or legal process; (b) protect the rights or property
of ZEBRA Consultants or our customers, including the enforcement of our agreements
or policies governing your use of the services; or (c) act on a good faith belief
that such access or disclosure is necessary to protect the personal safety of ZEBRA
Consultants employees, customers or the public.
Accessing Your Personal Information
You may have the ability to view or edit your personal information online. In order
to help prevent your personal information from being viewed by others, you will
be required to sign in with your credentials (e-mail address/username and password).
The appropriate method(s) for accessing your personal information will depend on
which sites or services you have used.
Some ZEBRA Consultants sites or services may collect personal information that is
not accessible via the links above. However, in such cases, you may be able to access
that information through alternative means of access described by the service. Or
you can write us by using our Web
form, and we will contact you within 30 days regarding your request.
You can stop the delivery of future promotional e-mail from ZEBRA Consultants sites
and services by following the specific instructions in the e-mail you receive.
These choices do not apply to the display of online advertising. Nor do they apply
to the receipt of mandatory service communications that are considered part of certain
ZEBRA Consultants services, which you may receive periodically unless you cancel
Display of Advertising
Some of the Web sites and online services we offer, as well as those of our partners,
are supported by advertising. Through the ZEBRA Consultants Advertising Platform,
we may display ads on our own sites and the sites of our advertising partners.
When we display online advertisements to you, we will place a persistent cookie
on your computer in order to recognize your computer each time we display an ad
to you. Because we may serve advertisements on many different Web sites, we are
able to compile information over time about where you, or others who are using your
computer, saw and/or clicked on the advertisements we display. We use this information
to make predictions about your characteristics, interests or preferences and to
display targeted advertisements that we believe may be of interest to you. We may
also associate this information with your subsequent visit, purchase or other activity
on participating advertisers’ Web sites in order to determine the effectiveness
of the advertisements.
While we may use some of the information we collect in order to personalize the
ads we show you, we designed our systems to select ads based only on data that does
not personally and directly identify you. For example, we may select the ads we
display according to certain general interest categories or segments that we have
inferred based on (a) demographic or interest data, including any you may have provided
when creating an account (e.g. age, zip or postal code, gender), demographic or
interest data acquired from other companies, and a general geographic location derived
from your IP address, (b) the pages you view and links you click when using ZEBRA
Consultants’s and its advertising partners’ Web sites and services,
and (c) the search terms you enter when using ZEBRA Consultants’s Internet
search services, such as Live Search.
When we display personalized ads, we take a number of steps designed to protect
your privacy. For example, we store page views, clicks and search terms used for
ad personalization separately from your contact information or other data that directly
identifies you (such as your name, e-mail address, etc.). Further, we have built
in technological and process safeguards designed to prevent the unauthorized correlation
of this data.
These companies may offer you a way to opt out of ad targeting based on their cookies.
You may find more information by clicking on the company names above and following
the links to the Web sites of each company. Some of these companies are members
of the Network Advertising Initiative,
which offers a single location to opt out of ad targeting from member companies.
Security of Your Personal Information
ZEBRA Consultants is committed to protecting the security of your personal information.
We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal
information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store
the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which
are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information
(such as a credit card number) over the Internet, we protect it through the use
of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it
is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information
with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always log out
before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent
Collection and Use of Children's Personal Information
Some ZEBRA Consultants sites and services are intended for general audiences and
do not knowingly collect any personal information from children. When a ZEBRA Consultants
site does collect age information, and users identify themselves as under 18, the
site will either block such users from providing personal information, or will seek
to obtain consent from parents for the collection, use and sharing of their children's
personal information. We will not knowingly ask children under the age of 18 to
provide more information than is reasonably necessary to provide our services.
Please note that if you grant consent for your child to use ZEBRA Consultants services,
this will include such general audience communication services as e-mail, instant
messaging, and online groups, and your child will be able to communicate with, and
disclose personal information to, other users of all ages. Parents can change or
revoke the consent choices previously made, and review, edit or request the deletion
of their children's personal information.
We encourage you to talk with your children about communicating with strangers and
disclosing personal information online. You and your child can visit Microsoft's
online safety resources for additional information about using the Internet
ZEBRA Consultants Web sites use "cookies" to enable you to sign in to our services
and to help personalize your online experience. A cookie is a small text file that
is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies contain information that
can later be read by a Web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies
cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to store your preferences and other information
on your computer in order to save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly

When you sign in to a site using your credentials, we store your unique ID number,
and the time you signed in, in an encrypted cookie on your hard disk. This cookie
allows you to move from page to page at the site without having to sign in again
on each page. When you sign out, these cookies are deleted from your computer. We

on cookies, and some advertising preferences that are dependent on cookies may not
be able to be respected.
If you choose to accept cookies, you also have the ability to later delete cookies
that you have accepted. If you choose to delete cookies, any settings and preferences
controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, will be deleted

Use of Web Beacons
ZEBRA Consultants Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons -
sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that may be used to assist in delivering cookies
on our sites and allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver
co-branded services. We may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or
our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted
ZEBRA Consultants may also employ Web beacons from third parties in order to help
us compile aggregated statistics regarding the effectiveness of our promotional
campaigns or other operations of our sites. We prohibit Web beacons on our sites
from being used by third parties to collect or access your personal information.
Finally, we may work with other companies that advertise on ZEBRA Consultants sites
to place Web beacons on their sites in order to allow us to develop statistics on
how often clicking on an advertisement on a ZEBRA Consultants site results in a
purchase or other action on the advertiser's site.
Controlling Unsolicited E-mail ("Spam")
ZEBRA Consultants is concerned about controlling unsolicited commercial e-mail,
or "spam." ZEBRA Consultants will not sell, lease or rent its e-mail subscriber
lists to third parties. While ZEBRA Consultants continues to actively review and
implement new technology, such as expanded filtering features, there is no currently
available technology that will totally prevent the sending and receiving of unsolicited
e-mail. Using junk e-mail tools and being cautious about the sharing of your e-mail
address while online will help reduce the amount of unsolicited e-mail you receive.
