What information does ZHEDO collect?

In order to serve you better, ZHEDO collects and stores your personal information when you: ( | )create an account on ZHEDO, ( || )sign up to be notified of special deals like discounts and exclusive offers, or ( ||| ) enter a contest or promotion on our site. An account is created when you do one of following things: make a purchase on ZHEDO or register for an account on ZHEDO, or enter certain ZHEDO sweepstakes. When creating an account, we ask you for your first and last name, your e-mail address, a password, and perhaps some other similar information. If you are making a purchase, we will additionally ask you for your billing address, shipping address, and credit card information. Our system also may gather information about the areas you visit on our site as well as the IP address you use to connect to our site. We may use this data internally only for 2 reasons: 1) to personalize your experience on ZHEDO. com and the marketing materials you receive from ZHEDO or its partners and 2) to prevent fraud on your account. We would not share any of this data on an individual basis (we may share it in an aggregate form without personal identifiers) with any outside company other than perhaps consultants or service providers of ZHEDO who were assisting ZHEDO in serving you better. Of course, to the extent that we would ever share any of that information with a consultant or service provider, we would only do so if that party agreed to protect your private information by adopting a privacy policy at least as stringent as our own. We do use navigational information both in the aggregate and on an individual basis to understand how our visitors use ZHEDO so that we can make our site better. We do not keep track of where you go on the World Wide Web.

What does ZHEDO do with this personal information?
