INFORMATION COLLECTION 

When a User buys tickets 

ZAP will ask Users to provide personally identifiable information necessary to fulfill a ticket order that may include name, billing and shipping addresses, telephone number, and credit card number. This is the same information requested when a customer places an order by telephone or through the mail. For online orders, we also require an email address so the User can receive order and shipping confirmation emails and so we can communicate with the User if we have difficulty processing an order. All credit card information provided with online orders will be temporarily stored on a secured server (see Data Security). We will retain the personally identifiable information provided with each order for our records, to facilitate customer service, and for the following purpose: We may provide certain ZAP Festival Sponsors a one-time use of contact information for ticket purchasers to ZAP events. Those sponsors may contact you by mail or e-mail to see if you are interested in their goods or services. Each of those sponsors may have its own privacy statement and opt-out provisions, but the information provided by ZAP is for one-time use only.

When a User makes a donation or becomes a member 

ZAP will ask Users to provide personally identifiable information necessary to process and service memberships and/or donations that may include name, billing and shipping addresses, telephone number, email address, name of spouse or partner, and credit card number. All credit card information provided in connection with a donation or membership purchase will be temporarily stored on a secured server (see Data Security). We will retain the personally identifiable information for our records and to facilitate service to our members. Opt-out

information is included on each member invoice. In addition, ZAP Advocate members who do not wish to be part of this program, may email a statement of their request to ZAP at: info@zinfandel.org , or by mail: ZAP, P.O. Box 1487 Rough and Ready, CA 95975. It is never distributed, whether free of charge or for a fee, to any person or organization for commercial or non-commercial purposes.

When a User provides an e-mail address 

When a User provides an e-mail address, ZAP may send email announcements to that address.

Each e-mail announcement will have unsubscribe information for Users who do not wish to

receive information by e-mail.

Automatic collection of non-personal information 

ZAP collects certain non-personal information automatically in order to make our Web site more useful by helping us learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use.

We may compile and report aggregate statistics about our users — such as numbers, traffic patterns, and related site information — but these statistics include no personally identifying information.

USE OF INFORMATION 

ZAP uses the information provided by Users so that we can better meet Users’ needs, fulfill ticket purchases and other online orders, facilitate customer service, and inform Users of our events. On occasion, ZAP may send emails to individuals who have provided an email address in connection with an online purchase, membership, donation or survey inviting them to subscribe to our online mailing list. Email recipients may always opt out of any email category at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions included in the email message. ZAP does not share Users’ personally identifying information except as described above for Users who have not opted-out; however ZAP will disclose or share such information if required to do so in accordance with a court order, subpoena or similar legal process, or if necessary to protect the rights, property and/or safety of ZAP, the Web site or any User or other third party.
