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.

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.

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

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.

website, you can send an email to email@example.com.
