Key Terms

We’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you’re not familiar with terms like cookies, IP addresses, and browsers, then read through our key terms below. Your privacy matters to us so whether you are new to myZEFER™ or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices.

An affiliate is an entity that belongs to the Infrastructure Data Systems Company, Inc. group of companies.
An application data cache is a data repository on a device. It can, for example, enable a web application to run without an internet connection and improve the performance of the application by enabling faster loading of content.
Browser web storage enables websites to store data in a browser on a device. When used in “local storage” mode, it enables data to be stored across sessions (for example, so that the data are retrievable even after the browser has been closed and reopened). One technology that facilitates web storage is HTML 5.
A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the website again, the cookie allows that site to recognize your browser. Cookies may store user preferences and other information. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some website features or services may not function properly without cookies. Other technologies are used for similar purposes as a cookie on other platforms where cookies are not available or applicable, such as the Advertising ID available on Android mobile devices.
A device is a computer that can be used to access myZEFER™ services. For example, a device could be a desktop, tablet or smartphone.

You may access some of our services by signing up for a myZEFER™ Account and providing us with some personal information (typically your name, email address and a password). This account information will be used to authenticate you when you access myZEFER™ services and protect your account from unauthorized access by others. You can edit or terminate your account at any time through your myZEFER™ Account settings.

An HTTP Referrer is information transmitted to a destination web page by a web browser, typically when you click a link to that webpage. The HTTP Referer contains the URL of the last webpage the browser visited.
Every device connected to the Internet is assigned a number known as an Internet protocol (IP) address. These numbers are usually assigned in geographic blocks. An IP address can often be used to identify the location from which a device is connecting to the Internet.
Like other technology and communications companies, myZEFER™ may receive requests from governments and courts around the world to hand over user data. Respect for the privacy and security of data you store with myZEFER™ underpins our approach to complying with these legal requests. Our legal team reviews each and every request, regardless of type, and we frequently push back when the requests appear to be overly broad or don’t follow the correct process.
This is information that is recorded about users so that it no longer reflects or references an individually identifiable user.
This is information which you provide to us which personally identifies you, such as your name, email address or billing information, or other data which can be reasonably linked to such information by myZEFER™, such as information we associate with your myZEFER™ account.
An advertising category may be sensitive if it relates to topics such as race, religion, sexual orientation, or health. When showing you tailored ads, we may associate an identifier from cookies or similar technologies with topics such as “Cooking and Recipes” or “Air Travel,” but not with sensitive categories. We impose a similar policy on our advertisers.
This is a particular category of personal information relating to confidential medical facts, racial or ethnic origins, political or religious beliefs or sexuality.
