ZuluTrade is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This Privacy Statement sets out our privacy policy and explains what we do with the personal information that we collect from you.

What Information does ZuluTrade collect from you?

We collect information from you when you register on our site and gather data when you participate in the forum by reading, writing, and evaluating the content shared here so that we can provide a more interesting and useful service. When registering on our site, you may be asked to enter your name and e-mail address. You may, however, visit our site without registering. Your e-mail address will be verified by an email containing a unique link. If that link is visited, we know that you control the e-mail address.
When registered and posting, we record the IP address that the post originated from for site security and to help us understand how people use our site so that we can improve our site and our users’ respective experiences. We also may retain server logs which include the IP address of every request to our server.

What do we use your information for?

Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
• To personalize your experience — your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs. In short, by knowing a little about you, ZuluTrade can deliver more relevant content to you.
• To improve our site — we continually strive to improve our site offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you.
• To improve customer service — your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs.
• To send periodic emails — the email address you provide may be used to send you information, notifications that you request about changes to topics or in response to your user name, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.
• We conduct research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based upon the information you provide us. We may also notify you of features, services, or areas of our site that we think may interest you based on the information we’ve received.

What do we use your information for?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information.

What do we use your information for?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow). These cookies enable the site to recognize your browser and, if you have a registered account, associate it with your registered account.

We use cookies to understand and save your preferences for future visits and compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

What is your data retention policy?

We will make a good faith effort to:

Retain server logs containing the IP address of all requests to this server no more than 90 days.

Retain the IP addresses associated with registered users and their posts no more than 5 years.

Will ZuluTrade disclose any of your personal information?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our site, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information strictly confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information (aggregated information) may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. For example, we might tell an advertiser that there are 20,000 registered email subscribers in the UK, but we will not tell them that Mr./Ms XXXXX is one of them, nor will we reveal their email addresses or other personally identifiable information.

We reserve the right to transfer any and all information that we collect from visitors, or that we otherwise collect concerning or in connection with the Site, to a third party in the event of a sale or other transfer of assets or of any portion of our business. In the event ZuluTrade enters a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information may be among the assets transferred.

We may disclose account information where we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the law or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) ZuluTrade’s rights or property, other Site users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our services.

We cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Policy. For example, we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the Site. We use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, however, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
