Use of Email Tools
You may NOT not use the contact portal or any other email services we offer to send spam (i.e. unsolicited commercial email) or otherwise send content that would violate DealZumo’s Terms and Conditions. We may monitor, track, or save the use of this feature but will be under no obligation to monitor, track, or save these email messages sent using these tools. We do not rent or sell any email addresses of un-registered users.
We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement. We do not sell your personal information to third parties.
These companies are authorized to use your personally identifiable information only as necessary to provide these services to us.
Though DealZumo makes every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein: we have good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process; when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request served on our website: and to any other third party with your prior consent to do so.
DealZumo shares member information only when a seller or capital seeker authorizes the information to be shared with a buyer or capital provider who has contacted the seller. DealZumo allows users to share contact information with one another via its DealAlert services. With DealAlert users can save their business search criteria in order to have business match data emailed to them. When selecting this service, users are given the option of releasing their contact information to other users who have business listings which match their criteria. This contact information is then shared with the users who have business listings which match the buying criteria. Unless required by law as detailed in this section or a user specifically takes action as discussed in this paragraph, DealZumo does not share individual user search activity information and such activity information remains private to the individual user and to DealZumo.
DealZumo shares information with its partners for the purpose of providing related services in which we deem our users have interest. The use that DealZumo’s partners make of customer information will not exceed DealZumo’s use of the data. Key billing information (such as credit card number, expiration date, CVV, and dollar amount) gathered from users making online purchases of products or services is shared with Authorize.net, our credit card processing partner, in order to authorize charges to the credit card. DealZumo also uses third party providers to perform email and postal mailings on behalf of DealZumo, but this information (such as name, address and email) is confidential and is not used by the provider for any other purpose.
DealZumo does not rent or lease user information to any third party, except as disclosed here. From time to time, DealZumo may obtain information (such as electronic mail addresses) from third party providers. It is our goal to only contact individuals who we believe may have a legitimate business interest in DealZumo based on their membership or participation in other organizations or web sites, and who have indicated a willingness to be contacted for this purpose. While DealZumo endeavors to work with other sites and companies with a similar respect for user privacy, DealZumo cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of other sites.
Please be aware that in the event DealZumo merges with a third party, or in the event all or substantially all of DealZumo’s assets are acquired by a third party, customer information, including personal information, will be shared and/or transferred to such third party. The information may only be used or shared by such third parties for the primary purpose for which the information was originally collected. If such third parties, or if DealZumo for its own business needs, desire to use the personal information for another purpose, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Website of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information prior to the information being used for a new purpose, and you will have the opportunity to opt out of such new use of your personal information.
