Privacy Statement

Z Gallerie is committed to protecting your privacy. This policy applies to information collected on zgallerie.com, computerized devices, in our stores, and through any location where the policy is posted (collectively referred to herein as "Sites”) and applies to data collection by Z Gallerie and/or its subsidiary and affiliated entities. BY VISITING OUR SITES, YOU CONSENT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND TO OUR PROCESSING OF INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSES STATED BELOW.
We firmly believe the continued success of the Internet is dependent on security and privacy. In support of this, we will use the personal information you provide in accordance with the terms outlined below.

Information We Gather

We collect two types of information from visitors to our Sites: (1) Personally Identifiable Information; and (2) Non-Personally Identifiable Information, such as your IP address or cookies.

(A) Personally Identifiable Information

"Personally Identifiable Information" is information that identifies you, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, or company name. Some examples in which we may collect and store your personally identifiable information on our Sites:

  • We may collect your email address if you sign up to receive email updates from us or contact us with a question;
  • We may collect your name, company name, business license number, address, phone number, email address, and social media information if you apply to participate in our Designer Trade Program;
  • We may collect your name, address, email address, credit card and billing information if you make a purchase of a product;
  • We may collect your name and address if you request a catalog from us;
  • We may collect your name, address, and email address if you create a registry or other account on our Sites; and
  • We may collect your name, date of birth, and email address if you choose to participate in a contest or sweepstakes.

The above list provides an example of the personally identifiable information that may be collected on our Sites.

(B) Non-Personally Identifiable Information

"Non-Personally Identifiable Information" can be technical information or it can be demographic information, such as your age, gender or interests. Non-personally identifiable information does NOT identify you personally. We’ve provided some examples of the non-personally identifiable information collected via our Sites and a description of how this information is used:

  • Internet Protocol (IP) address -- Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data -- such as the webpages you view. We use this information to deliver our webpages to you upon request, to tailor our Sites to the interests of our users and to measure traffic.
  • Cookie -- A "cookie" is a small text file that may be used to collect information about your activity on the Sites. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other users to our Sites.
  • Web Beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages.
  • Demographic Information -- "Demographic Information" may be your gender, age, zip code and interests, which you voluntarily provided to us. We use this information to provide you with personalized services and to analyze trends to ensure the information provided by our Sites meets your needs.
  • Geolocation Data --We may also collect your location if you allow us to track your location through our Sites, or if your personally or non-personally identifiable information indicates a certain geographic location. This information may help us provide recommendations to you based on your location.

The above list provides an example of the non-personally identifiable information that is collected via our Sites. Please note that we consider aggregated information, which is not personally identifiable, to be non-personally identifiable information. We may also tie non-personally identifiable information with personally identifiable information in order to ensure that the Sites and our services meet your needs. When we tie non-personally identifiable information with personally identifiable information, it is considered “personally identifiable information” for the purposes of this policy. That means that we will be using and sharing this combined data in the ways described in that section below.

Use of Gathered Information

(A) Personally Identifiable Information

  • To provide personalized content and services;
  • To deliver your catalog to you;
  • To alert you to special offers and updated information;
  • To process requested commerce transactions or to contact you regarding a specific transaction;
  • To fulfill the terms of a promotion;
  • To respond to your request or contact;
  • To allow you access to limited-entry areas of our Sites; and
  • To notify you of a material change to this privacy policy or our other relevant terms.

(B) Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Non-personally identifiable information is used as described above and in other ways as permitted by applicable laws, including combining non-personally identifiable information with personally identifiable information.

Sharing and Disclosure of Information

(A) Personally Identifiable Information

To better serve you we may share or disclose your personally identifiable information in the following instances:

  • To fulfill your request. For example, if you request one of our catalogs, we may share your information in order to fulfill your request. In addition, if you email us a question, we may use your email address to respond to your question. Also, if you are entering a sweepstakes or contest, we may use it in order to fulfill the terms of that promotion. This means that we may share the information for prize fulfillment purposes or with mail carriers. We also may share your information with the co-sponsor of that promotion.
  • To affiliates, strategic partners, agents, third party marketers or other unaffiliated parties who are offering products or services that we believe may be of interest to you or who require your personally identifiable information for research, administrative and/or internal business purposes.
  • To unaffiliated third-party service providers, agents or independent contractors who help us maintain our Sites and provide other administrative services to us (including, but not limited to, order processing and fulfillment, providing customer service, maintaining and analyzing data, sending customer communications on our behalf, and entry collection, winner selection and prize fulfillment for contests, sweepstakes and other promotions).
  • To complete your purchase. If you choose to make a purchase we will share your information with unaffiliated third parties that assist us with order fulfillment and with credit card processing.
  • To track and analyze non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical information from our visitors and customers and provide such information to third parties.
  • To comply with the law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the requirements of law or comply with legal process served on us, protect and defend our rights or property, including our rights and property and our Sites or act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our end users.
  • To third parties as part of any corporate reorganization process including, but not limited to, mergers, acquisitions, and sales of all or substantially all of our assets.
  • To protect against potential fraud, we may verify with third parties the information collected from these Sites. In the course of such verification, we may receive personally identifiable information about you from such services. In particular, if you use a credit card or debit card to purchase services with us, we may use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your card information and address matches the information that you supplied to us, and that the card has not been reported as lost or stolen.

Except as described in this Privacy Policy or at the time we request the information, we do not otherwise use, share or otherwise disclose your personally identifiable information to any third parties.

(B) Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We use non-personally identifiable information collected on the Sites in the manner disclosed above. We may share this non-personal information with third parties.

Minors

Protecting the privacy of children is extremely important to Z Gallerie. Our Sites are directed toward a general audience and are not directed at nor intended for use by children. We do not knowingly collect or intend to collect personally identifiable information from anyone who is under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, you should not provide personal information to anyone. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children's Internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Policy by instructing their children never to provide personally identifiable information through our Sites. If you have reason to believe a child under the age of 13 has provided personally identifiable information to us, please contact us and we will delete their information from our databases.

International Transfer of Information

If you choose to provide us with personally identifiable information, we may transfer that information to affiliates and subsidiaries or to other third parties, across borders, and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. If you are visiting from the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from United States law, please note that you are transferring your personally identifiable information to the US which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU and by providing your personally identifiable information you consent to:

  • the use of your personally identifiable information as identified above in accordance with this Privacy Policy; and
  • the transfer of your personally identifiable information to the United States as indicated above.

Opt-Out

We communicate with our customers and those individuals who subscribe to our services on a regular basis via email. For example, we may use your email address to confirm your request, to send you notice of payments, to send you information about changes to our products and services, and to send notices and other disclosures as required by law. Generally, users cannot opt-out of these communications, but they will be primarily informational in nature rather than promotional.
However, we provide you the opportunity to exercise an opt-out choice if you do not want to receive other types of communication from us, such as emails or updates from us regarding new services and products offered on the Sites or if you do not want us to share your personally identifiable information with third parties. The opt-out choice may be exercised by ticking or un-ticking the appropriate box if such checkbox is available at the points where personally identifiable information is collected or by contacting us. We will process your unsubscribe as soon as possible, but please be aware that in some circumstances you may receive a few more messages until the unsubscribe is processed. You also may opt-out of receiving such emails by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link within the text of the email. Additionally, we support and adhere to the guidelines and practices adopted by the Direct Marketing Association's Privacy Promise to American Consumers. We have agreed to (1) provide customers with notice of their ability to opt out of information rental, sale, or exchange with other marketers; (2) honor customers' requests not to share their contact information with other marketers; and (3) honor customers' requests not to receive mail, telephone, or other solicitations from Z Gallerie.

Forums, Chat Rooms and Other Public Posting Areas

Please note that any information you include in a message you post to any chat room, forum or other public posting area is available to anyone with Internet access. If you don't want people to know your e-mail address, for example, please don't include it in any message you post publicly. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE BY OTHERS OF THE INFORMATION THAT YOU DISCLOSE IN CHAT ROOMS, FORUMS AND OTHER PUBLIC POSTING AREAS.

Third Party Web Sites

This statement applies solely to information collected on our Sites. Our Sites may contain links to other web sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other web sites.

Third Party Advertisers

We may use advertisers, third party ad networks, and other advertising companies, to serve advertisements on the Sites. Please be advised that such advertising companies may gather information about your visit to the Sites or other sites (such as through cookies, web beacons and other technologies) to enable such advertising companies to market products or services to you, to monitor which ads have been served to your browser and which webpages you were viewing when such ads were delivered. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices please visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS POLICY DOES NOT COVER THE COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION BY SUCH ADVERTISING COMPANIES.

Online Tracking

We do not support Do Not Track browser settings and do not currently participate in any "Do Not Track" frameworks that would allow us to respond to signals or other mechanisms from you regarding the collection of your personally identifiable information or non-personally identifiable information.

Passwords


Your account information and access to certain areas of our Sites are sometimes accessible only through the use of an individual user ID and password. To protect your confidentiality, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. Please advise us immediately if you believe the confidentiality of your password has been compromised or your password has been misused. In addition, always log out and close your browser when you finish your session. Please note we will never ask you to disclose your password in an unsolicited phone call or email.

Accessing Your Personally Identifiable Information and Privacy Preferences

We provide you with an opportunity to access your personal information to ensure it is correct, accurate and current. You may update your information by accessing your account, if you have an account with us. Alternatively, you may contact our customer service representatives at (800) 908-6748 or customerservice@zgallerie.com

Assignment

In the event that all or part of our assets are sold or acquired by another party, or in the event of a merger, you grant us the right to assign the personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information collected via our Sites.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy from time to time. When we do, we will also revise the "last updated" date at the bottom of this privacy policy. For changes to this privacy policy that may be materially less restrictive on our use or disclosure of personally identifiable information you have provided to us, we will attempt to obtain your consent before implementing the change by sending a notice to the primary email address specified in your account or by placing a prominent notice on our Sites.

Security

We consider the confidentiality and security of your information to be paramount. We use physical, technical and administrative security measures to keep your personally identifiable information secure and confidential and will not provide it to third parties except as required by law or as otherwise provided in our Privacy Policy. All orders are transmitted over secure Internet connections using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption technology. All of your personally identifiable information, including your credit card information and sign-in password, are stored in an unreadable, encrypted format at all times. Our Sites and--more importantly--all user information are further protected by a multi-layer firewall based security system. However, the Internet is not a secure environment, and we cannot 100% guarantee the security of your personal information; there is some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way to circumvent our security measures or that information transmitted over the Internet may be intercepted. Protecting the security of your login information is your responsibility. Additionally, email and other communication channels may not be encrypted.
If we learn of a security systems breach we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using these Sites or providing personally identifiable information to us you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of these Sites. We may post a notice on our Sites if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.

YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits our visitors who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personally identifiable information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us at customerservice@zgallerie.com.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or our privacy practices, please contact us. All information you provide in any written communication will also be covered by this policy.
