Zyfex has created this privacy statement to explain our commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this site.
Our 100% privacy promise to you: Zyfex is committed to protecting the privacy of our visitors and members. We will never sell, rent or share your personally identifiable information to anyone.
INFORMATION COLLECTED ON THIS SITE:
For all web site visitors, sometimes third parties such as Google Analytics may provide IP addresses, browser type, page views, clickstream and usage. Such information helps us continually optimize the performance and usability of the site; protect musicians, authors, publishers and customers against fraud.
Non-member Activity - It is not necessary to subscribe to enjoy some of the content on Zyfex, although without subscription your viewing options and community participation may be limited. For example, without subscription you will not be able to participate in music and books giveaway.
Zyfex Member Activity - Zyfex members are allowed to access all public areas of the site. When you register with us our registration form requires a valid email address so we can contact you about your account and respond to your customer service requests. We ask for demographic information like zip code and whether you are over or under 18 years of age. We use your zip code to present you with geographically relevant information, and we use age to prevent children from viewing inappropriate adult content.
Zyfex allows member authors to publish their works under assumed “pen names.” Under no circumstances will Zyfex reveal the author’s true identity to customers or site visitors.
Artists or Authors who wish to sell their works on Zyfex are required to provide more detailed registration information, such as real name, a postal mailing address, a phone number, and possibly tax ID information to comply with State and local tax codes. Zyfex will only use this contact information to fulfill our obligations to you, and will not sell or rent your information to third parties.
Zyfex Email Policy:
subscribers and or members will receive occasional emails from Zyfex summarizing site news and feature updates. Zyfex authors/publishers will receive email alerts when they sell a book, or when their book is reviewed, or when Zyfex sends out exclusive Author/Publisher alerts. After you purchase a book, we may send you an automatic email reminder to review it. We may add additional event triggers or email alerts in the future. Members may opt-out of these updates, or subscribe to other updates, at any time by adjusting their communications preferences at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org. Zyfex sells books and music using third parties such as Amazon, Barns and Nobles, Apple, and Cd Baby. Third parties policies are independent of Zyfex policies and at time may send emails to its members. Subscriber email addresses are never revealed on the web site by Zyfex. Zyfex prohibits its author members from engaging in spam email to promote their books or music. See the Zyfex Terms of Service for more information.
Advertising on the Zyfex Site:
Although Zyfex does not currently run advertising, we may run ads in the future. If we run ads, we will do our best to make them unobtrusive, and when possible, informative and targeted to your specific interests.
Zyfex is not marketed to children. Like any ordinary publisher, Zyfex publish books that may contain adult themes and situations not recommended for children. We take multiple steps to ensure this content is not presented to children. First, we sell books and other products using third parties that required member’s age range at registration. This approach is put in place to blocked young adults and children under age 18 from viewing content that contains adult situations or content deemed to be objectionable to children. We allow authors to specify if their works are suitable for children. We allow members to flag works they believe are unsuitable for children. We place warning labels on music we deemed objectionable to children.
Children, should they wish to join, are allowed to become members. The above online information we collect from children is the same we collect from all members, and will only be used to respond directly to the child's request and will not be used by Zyfex for any other purposes without prior parental consent. If Zyfex learns that a child has posted information that would allow others to personally contact the child, Zyfex will immediately remove the information.
Zyfex provides users the opportunity to opt-in and opt-out of receiving email communications from Zyfex. For members who have specifically requested to receive communications from Zyfex, they can cancel the communications at any time by clicking on the links contained in the email.
