Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us, here's just some of the ways we at Zick's Web Ventures continue to protect you:


Zick's Web Ventures operates several websites including ZicksWebVentures.com and DataZap.net. It is Zick's Web Ventures' policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Zick's Web Ventures collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Zick's Web Ventures' purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Zick's Web Ventures' visitors use its website. From time to time, Zick's Web Ventures may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Zick's Web Ventures also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Zick's Web Ventures does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Zick's Web Ventures' websites choose to interact with Zick's Web Ventures in ways that require Zick's Web Ventures to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Zick's Web Ventures gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at DataZap.net to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Zick's Web Ventures – by purchasing access to the DataZap service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Zick's Web Ventures collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Zick's Web Ventures. Zick's Web Ventures does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Zick's Web Ventures may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Zick's Web Ventures may monitor the most popular sites on the DataZap.net site. Zick's Web Ventures may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Zick's Web Ventures does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Zick's Web Ventures’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Zick's Web Ventures will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Zick's Web Ventures discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Zick's Web Ventures believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Zick's Web Ventures, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Zick's Web Ventures website and have supplied your email address, Zick's Web Ventures may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Zick's Web Ventures and our products.
