At Zhibit LLC, we care about protecting your privacy. We have established the following policy to explain what information we collect about you, how we use it and how we safeguard it. We may revise this policy to reflect industry initiatives or changes in the law, our collection and use practices, the features of our websites or technology. Therefore, you may want to review it periodically so that you are up to date on our most current policies and practices.
Information we collect
The types of personally identifiable information that we collect about you include: name, address, email address, telephone number, fax number, and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services. Portions of our site are accessible only to persons who provide us with the requested personally identifiable information.
In some situations, you can submit information about other people. For example, you might submit a person's name and email address to send an invitation to join Zhibit.org. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected about other people at these pages include: recipient's name, address, email address and telephone number.
We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our site such as the type of browser you are using (e.g. FireFox, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using (e.g. Windows or Mac OS), your IP address and the web page from which you came. We use your IP address to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information about you and in order to administer and optimize and to diagnose problems with Zhibit.org.
Each time you sell through your website on Zhibit.org, PayPal sends Zhibit LLC a notification of the transaction by means of Instant Payment Notification (IPN). These notifications include details such as the names, amounts and prices of the items sold, as well as your customer's name, address and email address. We use these notifications to verify and log your transactions, maintain your inventory and email you and your buyers confirmation notices. Zhibit.org's servers will only react to transactions that originated from Zhibit.org; all other transactions are ignored and discarded.
To best protect your privacy, Zhibit LLC does not collect any of your financial information. Instead, we choose to work with PayPal - the leading online payment processor - whenever such interaction is necessary. Any financial information (e.g. credit card or bank account numbers) you enter on Zhibit.org or provide to PayPal is handled and protected by PayPal
and never stored on our servers.
