Privacy Policy




Effective as of October 8, 2010

This privacy policy ("Policy") describes how personally identifiable information you voluntarily provide, authorize to be released, or which is publicly available may be obtained and used for purposes of marketing by CPZMedia, Inc. and its CPZMedia.com, Inc. social network advertising operations ("CPZMedia"). CPZMedia is a technology company providing advertisements to consumers who have voluntarily registered with CPZMedia or one of its partners, through third party Websites, social networking applications and other means (together, these third party sources are referenced hereafter as "Publishers"). As used herein, "online" means using the Internet, including Websites and related technologies and "offline" means methods other than online, including in person, via postal mail, telephone and similar means. This Policy does not apply to the practices of Publishers or other companies that CPZMedia does not own or control or to people that CPZMedia does not employ or manage. CPZMedia retains its right to modify this policy from time to time by re-publishing it on the Internet; please check back for updates, as reflected in the “Effective as of” date above. Further, CPZMedia retains its right to enter into new or different lines of business with consumers and if and to the extent it does so, may display a different Privacy Policy to the consumer for such lines of business.

1. Collection of Information.

1.1 Subscription or Survey Information. CPZMedia collects information from you when you voluntarily provide it to CPZMedia or one of its Publishers (for example, by signing up for an email newsletter or through a co-registration offer on a survey), or by others means of online or offline surveys, order forms, or registration pages operated by third parties (collectively, a "User Form"). In a User Form, CPZMedia or a third party may offer you incentives in exchange for providing information about yourself such as name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers, birth date, gender, salary range, education and marital status, occupation, employment information, and personal and online interests (together, "User Information"). Completing the Surveys is voluntary and you are under no obligation to provide User Information.

1.2 Vendor List Information. CPZMedia may obtain information about you after you provide information to a third party and you permit that party (the "Seller") to share the information, which CPZMedia subsequently purchases, licenses, or otherwise lawfully acquires. Such information may include, but is not limited to, your name, street address, zip code, telephone numbers, birth date, gender, salary range, education, marital status, occupation, industry of employment, personal and online interests, and other information which you provided to the Seller (together, "Vendor List Information"). When acquiring Vendor List Information, CPZMedia requires assurances from the Seller that the Seller has a right to transfer the Vendor List Information to CPZMedia and that the CPZMedia may lawfully use the Vendor List Information to transmit offers from advertisers.

1.3 User Behaviors Collected with Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Information. CPZMedia uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about you, such as your Internet Protocol address and what Web browser you are using, with certain of your online behaviors, such as opening or clicking on a particular online advertisement. Additionally, CPZMedia may use other new and evolving sources of information and information gathering in the future (together, "Technology Information").

(a) Cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data stored on the hard drive of your computer that allows CPZMedia to identify your IP address with corresponding information in CPZMedia's database. CPZMedia may use cookies to track individual responses or views of advertisements. You may read more about cookies at www.cookiecentral.com.

(b) Web beacons. A web beacon is programming code used to display an image on a web page and can also transfer an individual's user identification to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired information about the individual. Web beacons enable CPZMedia to track certain Web sites you visit or advertisements you view online. Web beacons help determine products or services in which you may be interested and help track online behaviors for marketing purposes. More information about web beacons is available at http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/W/Web_beacon.html.

(c) Where Technology Information is Collected. Technology Information is collected directly from CPZMedia advertisements or indirectly through Publishers that CPZMedia contracts with to display advertisements. Such advertisements will usually be displayed within one of the following advertising vehicles:

Websites . CPZMedia may set a cookie on your computer when you view advertisements delivered on Publisher Websites. After a cookie is set, CPZMedia may track how you interact with the advertisement and the Publisher Website (for example, registering, purchasing, browsing, etc.).

Software Programs . Similar to Websites, CPZMedia displays banner advertisements in software programs that you may use.

Email Databases . CPZMedia may track your interaction with email advertisements sent to you on behalf of Publishers or partner Websites (for example, when you register, purchase, or browse in response to such email).

1.4 Outside Information. CPZMedia may lawfully receive information about you from third parties, such as information located in public databases ("Outside Information").

1.5 No Information Collected from Minors. MINORS UNDER THE AGE OF 18 SHOULD NOT PROVIDE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION, INCLUDING THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS, TO CPZMedia. If CPZMedia is notified it has personal information about a minor under the age of 18, that information will be promptly deleted from our database.

1.6 Individual Information. As used herein, Individual Information means Survey Information, Vendor List Information, Technology Information, Outside Information, and any other information CPZMedia lawfully obtains about you.

2. Use of Individual Information and User Data.

2.1 Discretion to Use Information. Information voluntarily provided to CPZMedia or lawfully obtained by CPZMedia is the property of CPZMedia and may be used by CPZMedia for any lawful purpose, including for marketing purposes. If you wish to end your email subscription with us or one of our Publishers, you may follow the instructions at the end of each email message to unsubscribe or follow the instructions detailed at Section 4 below.

2.2 Targeted Advertising and Information. CPZMedia uses Individual Information to target advertising and other information, such as business, weather, entertainment, sports and general news alerts and similar information, more effectively. When an individual is online, CPZMedia uses Technology Information to associate an individual with their Individual Information and CPZMedia attempts to show information and advertising for products and services to which the person may respond. CPZMedia may use data collected from a response to one type of advertising or information for targeting advertisements or other information through a different venue. For example, CPZMedia may notice that you responded to a baseball banner advertisement and use that response to deliver a baseball-related advertisement and other information to you.

2.3 Legal Process. CPZMedia may disclose Individual Information to respond to subpoenas, court orders and other legal process as required by law.

2.4 Summary Data. CPZMedia may sell or transfer non-individualized information, such as summary or aggregated anonymous information about all persons or sub-groups of persons.

2.5 Storage of Individual Information. CPZMedia stores Individual Information in a database on CPZMedia computers; the information is maintained and stored in encrypted form. In addition, CPZMedia’s computers have security measures, such as a firewall, to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under CPZMedia's control. CPZMedia also maintains physical and procedural safeguards to protect Individual Information. Notwithstanding such measures, CPZMedia cannot guarantee that its security measures will prevent these computers from being illegally accessed and the Individual Information on them stolen or altered.

3. Privacy Practices of Third Parties.

3.1 Advertiser cookies and web beacons. Publishers who place advertisements on the Internet may use their own cookies, web beacons and other technology to collect information about you. CPZMedia does not control Publishers' use of such technology.
