Users of the SkyBit website may elect to provide personal information to ZedX via e-mail, online registration forms, verbal conversations on the telephone, or other mechanisms applicable to use of the website. Also, users may be required to provide ZedX with certain information in order to gain access to the website. This information is used internally, as appropriate, to handle the sender's requests and other matters pertaining to operation of the website. ZedX will not knowingly disclose, sell, lease, rent, or sublicense this information to any third party.
ZedX may also use this information to create summary statistics and to determine the level of interest in information available on the website and to improve user interaction.
Some areas of the SkyBit website may use a "cookie" temporarily stored in the visitor's computer memory (RAM) to allow the web server to log the pages you use within the website and to know if you have visited the website before.
Protecting your privacy is important to ZedX and its affiliates. We want you to understand what information we collect and how it is used and shared with others. In order to provide users with a broad range of information and services as effectively and conveniently as possible, ZedX uses various technologies to manage information submitted to the website.
What Information Is Collected
ZedX may collect "non-public personal information" about you from the following sources:
- Information received from you regarding setup of your access to the website;
- Information about your transactions on the website while visiting the website, as well as transaction with any related products or services offered by ZedX;
- Information or data you submit to the website for processing, and
- Information we receive from third parties responsible for disseminating your information or from whom you receive other products or services.
"Non-public personal information" is non-public information about you that we obtain in connection with providing services or information from the SkyBit website to you and/or others. For example, non-public personal information includes information regarding your name, affiliation(s), location, history of data input or submissions, etc.
What Information We Disclose
We are permitted under law to disclose non-public personal information about you to other third parties in certain circumstances. For example, we may disclose non-public personal information about you to third parties to assist us in providing service or information to you (for instance, to a telecommunications provider), to government entities in response to subpoenas, to other organizations involved in the sharing of information from the SkyBit website, and to other service providers. We do not intentionally disclose any non-public personal information about you to anyone, except as permitted by law. Also, in the event we disclose non-public personal information about you, we disclose only so much as is required to provide the product or service requested, or to comply with authoritative governmental requests.
If you decide to stop using the SkyBit website, we will continue to adhere to the privacy policies and practices described in this notice.
ZedX also takes steps to safeguard information about users of the SkyBit website. We restrict access to your personal information to those employees who need to know that information to provide products, information, or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with industry standards to guard your non-public personal information from unauthorized disclosure.
The Internet service by which the SkyBit website is made available brings together a combination of industry-approved security technologies to protect data for us and for the users of the Site. It features user name and password-controlled system entry, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol for data encryption, and a router loaded with a firewall to regulate the inflow and outflow of server traffic.
Secure Data Transfer
To access the SkyBit website, you may be required to use log-on procedures established by us to begin a session of interaction with the website. Once the server session is established, the user and the server are in a secured environment. Data traveling between the user and the server is encrypted with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. With SSL, data that travels between you and the website is encrypted and can only be decrypted with the public and private key pair (an industry standard). The server hosting the website issues a public key to the user's browser and creates a temporary private key. These two keys are the only combination possible for that session. When the session is complete, the keys expire and the whole process starts over when a user establishes another server session.
Router and Firewall
Requests for data transmission to the SkyBit website must filter through a router and firewall before they are permitted to reach the server. A router, a piece of hardware, works in conjunction with the firewall, a piece of software, to block and direct traffic coming to the server. The configuration begins by disallowing ALL traffic and then opens communication links only when necessary to process acceptable data requests, such as retrieving web pages or sending user requests for information or processing to the website.
Using the above technologies, ZedX attempts to make your interaction with the website as secure as possible.
