This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for Zittware - currently residing @ http://www.zittware.com on the Internet.

Information Collection and Use

Zittware.com is the sole owner of the information collected on this site.  We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.  Zittware.com collects information from our users at several different points on our website.

Beta Registration
In some cases, we ask a user to complete a registration form to access our beta products. During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and email address).  This information is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest.  It is optional for the user to provide demographic information (such as income level and gender), and unique identifiers (such as social security number), but encouraged so we can provide a more personalized experience on our site. 


We request information from the user on our order form.  Here a user must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date).  This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer’s orders.  If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.

Zittware.com currently outsources our registration services. This information is sent to a third party who processes the order and charges the customers credit cards. Question concerning privacy and the registration services should contact those companies.


Because we outsource our registration services, Zittware.com never receives your credit card information. Each of our vendors employ various security measures including but not limited to SSL encrypted WWW order forms.

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user.  Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site.  Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates.  For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site.  If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site.  The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site.  Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.

Some of our business partners use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers).  However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

Log Files
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.  IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes; However Zittware.com cannot be held responsible for any misuse of privacy by these companies.

Other than the cases listed above, We do not share information with any other third parties. We will do our best to securely store any personally information including (but not limited to) your e-mail addresses. 

Zittware.com cannot be held responsible for security holes in our systems that may allow hackers to obtain and steal personal information.

Our owner despises unsolicited e-mail in all forms, so rest assured you information will be kept in the strictest of confidence.

Third Party advertising in our Products
Some of our third party advertising services have come under fire in the press due to some mis-understandings by various members of the internet community. Zittware uses these services to generate revenue from our shareware products. Understanding that this may be of concern to some of our customers, we have provide links here for our customers to judge for themselves if using our products violates their right to privacy.


In addition to the steps outlined by our vendors above, a user my Register our products. Registered versions of our products do not contain third party advertisements and as such do not have the same issues as the shareware versions.

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Zittware is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.  We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.  This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.

Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests.  Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information.  Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level).  Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes.  Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information.  When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. 

When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL.  While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’. 

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line.  All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices.  Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.  Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. 

If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to no_spam@zittware.com.

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it.  If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email.  Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
