4. Disclosing Information
Partners and Sponsors. Some of our products or services are offered or promoted to our customers
in conjunction with a partner or sponsor, or another brand or company within our corporate family.
We may share your information with these parties to offer the product or service or to facilitate your
use of additional amenities included with your hosting account. For example, one of our partners may
provide services to you based on links that you access from your control panel.
We may also disclose aggregate, anonymous data based on information collected from users to
potential partners, reputable third parties and other companies or brands within our corporate family.
We will only share your information with third parties that agree to maintain your information in
confidence and to use it solely for purposes of providing the product or service as agreed to by
Service Providers. We may transfer (or otherwise make available) your personal information to third
parties that help us provide our services or provide services on our behalf. For example, we may use
service providers to authorize and process payments, administer surveys, or run promotions. Your
personal information may be maintained and processed by our third party service providers in the
United States or in other jurisdictions. Our service providers are given the information they need to
perform their designated functions, and we do not authorize them to use or disclose personal
information for their own marketing or other purposes.
Online Advertisements. We do not share personally identifiable information about individual
customers with advertisers. We may display online advertisements and we may share aggregated and
non-identifying information about our customers that we collect through the registration process or
through online surveys and promotions with certain advertisers. In some instances, we use this
aggregated and non-identifying information to deliver tailored advertisements. For example, an
advertiser may tell us the audience they want to reach (e.g., males between 25 and 55 years of age)
and provide us with an advertisement tailored to the audience. Based upon the aggregated and nonidentifying information we have collected, we may then display the advertisement to the intended
Customer Surveys. We may share customer information obtained from customer surveys within
Zinglo and our corporate family, and with trusted third parties to develop or provide products and
services that we believe would be of interest to our customers.
Domain Registration. In certain jurisdictions or pursuant to the rules of the Internet Corporation for
Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN") or certain registries, the contact information you provide
to register a domain name ("Domain Name Registration Information") has to be made available and
accessible to the public through a "WHOIS" search. The WHOIS database is a publicly accessible
database that lists the Domain Name Registration Information for a particular domain name, the name
server(s) to which the domain name points, and the domain name's creation and expiration date. The
Domain Name Registration Information you provide is hosted by us or a third party service provider
and is made available to the public through WHOIS searches. At times, customers may receive
solicitations that result from searches of the publicly available WHOIS database by other companies
or individuals. Any such solicitations or SPAM do not come from Zinglo and we do not control the
use of WHOIS information by third parties. Further, pursuant to ICANN rules, Zinglo is required to
make WHOIS data available to any third party that enters into a bulk access agreement. While
ICANN allows individuals to opt-out (using the account management panel, domain management
console or similar service) of having their WHOIS information made available to third parties
through bulk access, companies, such as ours, businesses, and other organizations do not have the
ability to opt-out of having their information made available to a third party that enters a bulk access
agreement. We may also deposit your Domain Name Registration Information with a third-party
escrow provider to comply with ICANN requirements.
Legal Reasons. We may access, preserve and share information about customers with companies,
organizations, governmental entities or individuals outside of Zinglo if we believe, in good faith, that
the law requires us to do so. This may include, but is not limited to, responding to subpoenas, court
orders or other legal processes (such as law enforcement requests). We may also access, preserve and
share information about customers as necessary to: (i) establish or exercise Zinglo’s legal rights or
defend against any legal claim including threatened claims involving Zinglo based on the anonymity
of a domain name; (ii) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected fraud or other illegal
activities; (iii) prevent death or serious physical harm to any person; or (iv) investigate violations of
Zinglo’s Terms of Service.
