Effective April 21, 2018

This Privacy Policy states how and why Zari Consulting Group, Inc. (“Zari Consulting Group,” “we” or “us”) collects, uses, and shares information about you when you use our websites, mobile apps, widgets, and other online products and services (“Services”) or when you interact with us or receive a correspondence from us. This Privacy Policy applies to all of our Services.

Our Data Compiling

We collect the information you provide to us directly when you retain our Services. This includes the following:

Account information.  To create an account, you must provide a username and password. Your username is public, and it doesn’t have to be related to your real name. You may also provide an email address.

The content you submit. We collect the content you submit to our website. This includes your posts and comments including saved drafts, your messages with other subscribers, and your reports and other communications with us. Your content may include text, links, images, gifs, and videos.

Actions you take.  We collect information about the actions you take when using our website. This includes your interactions with content.

Transactional information.  If you purchase products or services from us or sign up, we will collect certain information from you, including your name, address, email address, and information about the product or service you are purchasing. Payments are processed by third-party payment processors, so please refer to the applicable processor’s terms and privacy policy for more information about how payment information is processed and stored.

Other information.  You may choose to provide other information directly to us. For example, we may collect information when you fill out a form, participate in Zari Consulting Group-sponsored activities or promotions, apply for a job, or otherwise communicate with us.

Information We Collect Automatically

When you access or use our Services, we may also automatically collect information about you. This includes:

Log and usage data.  We may log information when you access and use the Services. This may include your IP address, user-agent string, browser type, operating system, referral URLs, device information, pages visited, links clicked, the requested URL, hardware settings, and search terms. Except for the IP address used to create your account, Zari Consulting Group will delete any IP addresses collected after 100 days.

Information collected from cookies and similar technologies.  We may receive information from cookies, which are pieces of data your browser stores and sends back to us when making requests, and similar technologies. We use this information to improve your experience, understand user activity, and improve the quality of our Services. For example, we store and retrieve information about your preferred language and other settings. For more information on how you can disable cookies, please see “Your Choices” below.

Location information.  We may receive and process information about your location. For example, with your consent, we may collect information about the specific location of your mobile device (for example, by using GPS or Bluetooth). We may also receive location information from you when you choose to share such information on our Services, including by associating your content with a location, or we may derive your approximate location from other information about you, including your IP address.

How We Use Information About You

We use information about you to do the following:

  • Provide, maintain, and improve the Services;
  • Research and develop new services;
  • Help protect the safety of Zari Consulting Group and our users, which includes blocking suspected spammers, addressing abuse, and enforcing the Zari Consulting Group user agreement and our other policies;
  • Send you technical notices, updates, security alerts, invoices and other support and administrative messages;
  • Provide customer service;
  • Communicate with you about products, services, offers, promotions, and events, and provide other news and information we think will be of interest to you;
  • Monitor and analyze trends, usage, and activities in connection with our Services; and
  • Personalize the Services and provide advertisements, content and features that match user profiles or interests.

Ads and Analytics Partners

We may partner with third-party advertisers, ad networks, and analytics providers to deliver advertising and content targeted to your interests and to better understand your use of the Services. These third parties may collect information sent by your computer, browser, or mobile device in response to a request for content, such as unique identifiers, your IP address, or other information about your computer or device. For example:

Advertisers and Ad Networks

Our ad partners and ad networks may use cookies and related technologies to collect information when ads are delivered to you on our Services, but Zari Consulting Group does not link to or provide them with your actual Zari Consulting Group account details. This means that Zari Consulting Group does not share your individual account browsing habits with advertisers. Zari Consulting Group cannot see advertisers’ cookies and advertisers will not see Zari Consulting Group cookies. 

Analytics Partners

We use analytics partners (such as Google Analytics) to help analyze usage and traffic for our Services. As an example, we may use analytics partners to analyze and measure, in the aggregate, the number of unique visitors to our Services.

Changes to This Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we do, we will let you know by revising the date at the top of the policy. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access or use our Services or otherwise interact with us to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy. By continuing to use our Services after Privacy Policy changes go into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised policy.
