Web Sites Covered
Personal Information Collected
We collect information from individuals who visit or use our Websites (“Visitors”), including those who register to receive information. When signing up to become a registered user of Zerto or expressing an interest in obtaining additional information about Zerto or registering to receive further information, Zerto requires you to provide us with contact information, such as name, company name, address, phone number, email address, user IDs and passwords. Additionally, Zerto may collect information about your interactions and experiences on our Websites, such as which pages you visit, what content you view and how often you come to our sites.
Use of Information Collected
We use your information to perform the services requested. For example, if you fill out a “Contact Me” web form, we will use the information provided to contact you about your interest in Zerto or its products or services. By registering with Zerto, you understand that we may send you communications or data from our websites regarding service related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service, including but not limited to: (i) notices about your use of our services, including any notices concerning violations of use; (ii) updates; and (iii) promotional information and materials regarding Zerto’s products and services, via electronic mail. We give you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving electronic mail from us by following the opt-out instructions provided in the message.
Public Forums and Customer Testimonials
We may provide bulletin boards, blogs, or chat rooms on website and/or third party websites such as Facebook and Twitter. Additionally, some of our Websites allow users to publish content via discussion forums, blogs, user-editable documents, and commenting systems. Any personally identifiable information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. Each participant’s opinion expressed is his or her own and should not be considered as reflecting the opinion of Zerto.
We may post a list of customers and testimonials on our Websites that contain information such as customer names and titles. We obtain the consent of each such customer prior to posting any information on such a list or posting testimonials.
Web Site Navigational Information
We also use commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and Web beacons, to collect information as you navigate our Websites (“Web Site Navigational Information”). Web Site Navigational Information includes standard information from your web browser (such as browser type and browser language), your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, and the actions you take on our Websites (such as the web pages viewed and the links clicked). We use Web Site Navigational Information to operate and improve our Websites. We may also use Web Site Navigational Information in combination with Visitor information to provide personalized information about Zerto.
We may use “cookies” to make interactions with our Websites easier and more meaningful. When you visit our Websites, our servers may send a “cookie” to your computer. Standing alone, “cookies” do not personally identify you; they merely recognize your web browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to us, either by responding to a promotional offer, opening an account, or filling out a web form (such as a “Contact Me” or a “14 Day Free Trial” web form), you remain anonymous to us.
There are two types of “cookies”: session-based and persistent-based. Session “cookies” exist only during one session; that is, they disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent “cookies” remain stored on your computer after you close your browser or turn off your computer.
We use persistent “cookies” that only we can read and use to identify browsers that have previously visited our Websites. We may use information from session and persistent “cookies” in combination with Visitors’ information to provide you with information about Zerto and our products and services.
We use ”web beacons” alone or in conjunction with “cookies” to compile information about usage of our Websites and interaction with emails from us. “Web beacons” are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as “cookies,” when you viewed a particular website tied to the “web beacon,” and a description of a website tied to the “web beacon.” For example, we may place “web beacons” in marketing emails that notify us when you click on a link in the email that directs you to our Websites. We use “web beacons” to operate and improve our Websites and email communications. We may use information from “web beacons” in combination with Visitors’ information to provide you with information about Zerto or its products or services.
When you visit our website, we collect your IP addresses to track and aggregate non-personally identifiable information. For example, we use IP addresses to monitor the regions from which Visitors navigate our Websites.
Third Party Cookies
This section applies to customers of our products or services.
Information We Collect
The information we learn from our customers helps us personalize and continually improve our services to you. We collect information as follows:
On a monthly basis, cloud service providers (“CSP”) submit a report to us by using the reporting feature of our software, or alternatively, by enabling our software to submit the relevant information to us via a secure API in order to produce such report. Such report covers all usage information from all data centers, and it includes the number of virtual machines on which our software was operated during the applicable month, as well as other relevant information such as the name of the protected site, the name of the recovery site, the virtual protection group domain name, the type of virtual machine, etc. The information set forth in this section shall be referred to as the “CSP Billing Information.”
We collect support data from whoever enables Zerto Analytics and runs our software. Such support data includes, among other things, our licensing information, version information (Zerto and vSphere), and environment statistics (number of virtual machines, number of replicated virtual machines, number of VPGs, etc.). The information set forth in this section shall be referred to as the “Support Data.”
How We Use Collected Information
CSP Billing Information is used only for automated billing purposes.
Support Data is used by our support team for improving the support provided to customers. For example: if we find a bug in a certain version of our software, we may use the Support Data to contact customers who are running such version with a proposed bug-fix.
Disclosure of Collected Information
We reserve the right to fully use and disclose any information that is not in personally identifiable form.
We strive to maintain the reliability, accuracy, completeness and currency of personal and customer information that we collect and to protect the privacy and security of our customers and Visitors.
We implement industry-standard security measures in our servers and databases designed to prevent the loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the information we collect, including encryption, firewalls, password protection, and access controls.
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We allow you, however, to choose a non-encrypted channel to work with our management system. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer.
We restrict access to the information we collect to our employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
If you have any questions about the security of Zerto’s services or the Websites, please contact us at [email@example.com].
We keep your personal information only for as long as reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or to comply with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or document retention requirements. We take reasonable steps to ensure that data is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.
Safe Harbor; Dispute Resolution
As part of our commitment to protecting your privacy, we make best efforts to comply with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland. We have certified that we adhere to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. To learn more about the Safe Harbor program, and to view our certification, please visit http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/. If you would like to contact us directly about the Safe Harbor program, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Zerto does not knowingly contact, collect or retain personal information from children under 13 years of age. Any person who provides their personal information to Zerto through its services must be 13 years of age or older. If we learn that personal information of persons under the age of 13 years has been collected on one of our services we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. If you believe we have inadvertently collected such information, please contact us so we can promptly obtain parental consent or remove the information.
If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under the age of 13 has obtained an account with Zerto, then you may alert us at [email@example.com] and request that we delete that child’s personal information from our systems.
Inquiries or Complaints
If you would like to contact us regarding the use of your information collected in connection with our services, the types of third parties to whom we disclose such information, ways to limit the use and disclosure of such information, or to access, correct, amend, or delete your personal information collected in connection with our services that is stored on our systems, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org detailing your request.
