We collect anonymous data from every visitor of the Website to monitor traffic and fix bugs. For example, we collect information like web requests, the data sent in response to such requests, the Internet Protocol address, the browser type, the browser language, and a timestamp for the request. On occasion, we may ask you provide certain personal information (such as your name and email address) in order to be able to receive communications.
You are able to view, change and remove your data associated with your profile. Should you choose to delete your account, please contact us and we will follow up with such request as soon as possible. Minors and children should not use Zilli Hospitality Group. By using the Website, you represent that you have the legal capacity to enter into a binding agreement.
Use of the Data
We only use your personal information to provide you the Zilli Hospitality Group services or to communicate with you about the services or the Website.
We employ industry standard techniques to protect against unauthorized access of data about you that we store, including personal information.
We do not share personal information you have provided to us without your consent, unless:
- doing so is appropriate to carry out your own request;
- we believe it’s needed to enforce our Terms of Service, or that is legally required;
- we believe it’s needed to detect, prevent or address fraud, security or technical issues;
- otherwise protect our property, legal rights, or that of others.
Zilli Hospitality Group is operated from the United States. If you are visiting the Website from outside the U.S., you agree to any processing of any personal information you provide us according to this policy. Zilli Hospitality Group may contact you, by email or other means. For example, Zilli Hospitality Group may send you promotional emails relating to Zilli Hospitality Group or other third parties Zilli Hospitality Group feels you would be interested in, or communicate with you about your use of the Zilli Hospitality Group website. Zilli Hospitality Group may also use technology to alert us via a confirmation email when you open an email from us. You can modify your email notification preferences by clicking the appropriate link included in the footer of email notifications. If you do not want to receive email from Zilli Hospitality Group, please opt out of receiving emails at the bottom of any Zilli Hospitality Group emails or by editing your profile preferences.
Sharing of Data
We don’t share your personal information with third parties. Only aggregated, anonymized data is periodically transmitted to external services to help us improve the Zilli Hospitality Group Website and service.
We also use social buttons provided by services like Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Facebook. Your use of these third party services is entirely optional. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices of these third party services, and you are responsible for reading and understanding those third party services’ privacy policies.
We employ and contract with people and other entities that perform certain tasks on our behalf and who are under our control (our “Agents”). We may need to share personal information with our Agents in order to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, our Agents do not have any right to use Personal Information or other information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal Information with our Agents.
We may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the transferred business assets. Moreover, if we, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Should you have any question or concern, please write to garyc [at] zillihospitalitygroup.com.
Terms of Service
1. Acceptance of the Terms of Service
We want to keep our relationship with you as lean and informal as possible, but please read the Terms of Service carefully before you start using Zilli Hospitality Group, because by using the Website you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms of Service.
This is a very standard provision for a site like Zilli Hospitality Group: since you don’t need to register to access most of our services, we have to disclaim some things in advance (like the fact that our site might experience downtime, that we don’t give legal advice, etc.). Our Terms are linked on every page of the site, according to the industry standard, to be easily found.
Should you disagree with some of the provisions herein, you can either leave the Website (although we’ll be sad to see you go!). Zilli Hospitality Group is all about collaborating for improving legal documents, and we’ll be happy to hear your comments and suggestions.
