COOKIE NOTICE OF ZONETAP

[NOTE: The EU ‘Cookie Directive’ requires organizations to obtain consent to place and access data (like cookies) on a computer or other internet-connected device. This is often achieved through an “implied consent” mechanism of a notice (aka a cookie notice) available for long enough to be seen by a user before cookies are placed on the user’s device. That is, the users’ consent is impliedly given when they see a cookie notice, understand its meaning and rely on the functionality available to make their cookie choices (n.b., users also must be able to refuse the use of cookies—other than those that fall under the strictly necessary cookie exemption). EU regulators generally have tolerated use of cookies as long as the website deployed some visible on-screen notice explaining that cookies are deployed and those who wanted to learn more could do so before proceeding. But, EU regulators also in the process of adopting a new ePrivacy Regulation that will replace the current ePrivacy Directive. Once the new ePrivacy Regulation is final, EU member states may have the right to create national laws implementing the ePrivacy Directive’s replacement.

If Zonetap deploys a cookie notice certain sections of the privacy policy can be revised.]

* * * * Effective Date: November 28th, 2018 This Cookie Notice applies to Zonetap, Inc. (“Zonetap” or “we”) and our website[s?] at www.Zonetap.com [add?] (together, the “Websites”). This Cookie Notice explains how we use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit the Websites, why we use them and rights to control our use of them.

What are cookies? Cookies are small text files that are sent to or accessed from your web browser or your computer’s hard drive. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., when it expires) and a randomly generated unique number or similar identifier. A cookie also may contain information about your computer, such as user settings, browsing history and activities conducted while using the Websites. To learn more about cookies generally, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

Cookies are widely used by website owners to make their websites work or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide analytics data about the operation of their websites.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Zonetap) are called first-party cookies.  Cookies set by any other party are called third-party cookies.  Third-party cookies enable third-party features or functionality on or through the Websites, such as interactive content and analytics.  The parties that set third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the Websites and also when it visits certain other websites.

Why does Zonetap use cookies? We use first-party cookies and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons for the Websites to operate – we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our visitors to enhance the experience on the Websites.

The types of cookies served through the Websites and the purposes they perform are described below: o “Strictly necessary” cookies must be set to allow us to deliver the Websites to you and to provide specific services that you request from us. o “Performance” or “Analytics” cookies, which help us to collect information about how visitors use our Websites and helps us analyze and improve the Websites. Performance or analytics cookies will remain on your computer after you close your browser. o “Advertising” cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you.

Does Zonetap use other tracking technologies, like web beacons? Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website.  We may use other data collection technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”).  A web beacon is computer code that contains a unique identifier that enables us to monitor user activity and traffic of the Websites. This other data collection technology enables Zonetap to monitor the traffic patterns of visitors from one page on the Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve performance of the Websites and to measure the success of our email marketing campaigns.  This other data collection technology relies on cookies to function properly, which means that declining cookies will impair the functioning.
