KAZADU, LLC ("Kazadu") owns and operates the www.kazadu.com website. All references to "we", "us", this "website" or this "site" shall be construed to mean Kazadu.  We understand that visitors to this website are concerned about the privacy of information. The following describes our privacy policy regarding information, including Personal Information, that we collect through this website.  By using this website you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.
 
 
Kazadu has created this Privacy Policy in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. This Privacy Policy is hereby incorporated in our Terms and Conditions of Use and by visiting our website ("Site") or registering with our Site, you accept the terms of this Privacy Policy.
 
1. Notification of Changes We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time as our services change and expand. If we update this Privacy Policy, we will post the updated User Policy on this page. Unless otherwise provided below, the revised terms will take effect when they are posted. Once any changes that we make to this Privacy Policy become effective, your continued use of the Platform after such time will signify your acceptance of the new terms. If we are going to use your Personally Identifiable Information (as defined below) in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify you and you will have a choice as to whether or not we use your Personally Identifiable Information in this different manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that affect user information already stored in our database, we will notify Users and Members of the change and solicit Users and Members for their express acceptance of that change.
 
2. This Site contains links to other Sites Kazadu is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any other web sites to which the Platform links or which link to the Platform. By clicking on a link, logo or other item, please note that you may no longer be on the Platform. To check what Internet location you are on, note the URL at the top and/or bottom of your browser. We encourage you to read the posted Privacy Policy of that web site whenever interacting with any web site not operated by Kazadu.
 
3. Information We Gather During Registration and Through Use of Platform and Applications If you register to become a Member on the Platform, or if you make use of products and services developed by Kazadu for mobile devices or Smartphones for use with the Platform (the "Kazadu Applications"), we collect and store information that specifically identifies you or your account ("Personally Identifiable Information"). This Personally Identifiable Information is limited to the information necessary to transact business on the Platform. At this time, the most information you would be required to submit as a Service Seeker looking for Service Providers is your first name, last name, password, street address, city, state, zip/postal code, country, and email address. As a Service Provider you will be required to provide your first name, last name, business name, password, street address, city, state, zip/postal code, country, email address, and business information related to the particular services you provide. Additional information may be required for professional designations, specialties or credentials. Members wishing to pay for various upgrades or other services via credit card are also required to enter a valid credit card number and name as it appears on the credit card. Other information requested on our registration page, including the ability to receive promotional offers from Kazadu, is optional. We may also gather information if you elect to download the Kazadu Applications for use on your mobile device or Smartphone. We may, in the future, include other optional requests for information from you, to help us to tailor the Platform for you and deliver personalized information to you. We may supplement our information with additional information created by us or purchased from third parties for marketing purposes. Credit card information will be transmitted via SSL encryption for your protection. We shall retain your Personally Identifiable Information for a period of seven years from the date upon which it is collected/the date upon which you cease conducting transactions on the Platform.
 
4. Service Providers Profile, Ratings, Portfolio, Back Office Management and Deals. These areas of the Platform are for the benefit of Users and Members. The private and shared areas of the Platform help to facilitate communication and the exchange and sharing of information between Service Seekers and Service Providers. The information contained within our platform is accessible by Kazadu, Service Seekers and Service Providers. Kazadu may use non-Personally Identifiable Information from our platform for statistical analysis, product development, marketing, advertising, and research. Kazadu reserves the right to monitor communications throughout our Platform, and if we believe that a User is violating any of our agreements; international, federal or state laws; and/or our stated policies, we may terminate such usage.
 
5. Affiliates If you sign up under one of the Kazadu affiliate or referral programs, you will be required to provide: a User ID, a password, email address, city, state, country and zip/postal code. The referral program requests the User ID of a referrer and your phone number as optional information. The affiliate program will also require a contact name, phone number, street address, phone number, tax classification and, for US Affiliates only, your Social Security or Tax ID Number for tax purposes. It further requests the URL of your web site, the number of registered Users on your site, and a brief general description of your site. We will use this information for our own internal purposes, including evaluating and developing new features that better meet the needs of our affiliates. We will use the email address that you provide to us to contact you regarding the status of your affiliate or referral program account and we will use the address that you provide to us to send you any payments owed to you under the terms of the affiliate or referral programs.
 
6. Online Surveys and Contests Occasionally Kazadu conducts online user surveys to collect information about our Users' preferences. These surveys are optional and if you choose to respond, your responses will be kept anonymous. Similarly, we may offer contests to qualifying Users in which we ask for contact and demographic information such as name, email address and mailing address. None of this information is shared with third parties, except in summary form, if at all. The demographic information that Kazadu collects in the registration process and through online surveys is used to help us improve our services to meet the needs and preferences of our Uses and Members. This may include targeting advertising to you about our services. Information we gather through a contest may also be disclosed to third parties as necessary for prize fulfillment and other aspects of any contest or similar offering.
 
7. The Kazadu Payment System Kazadu offers a payment system that allows Service Providers to pay with a credit card (the "Payment System"). If you make use of the Payment System, Kazadu will collect your credit card number and/or other entered financial institution information and will use that information to bill your membership upgrade fee and/or to perform the billing operation on behalf of the Service Provider Member, including but not limited to the use and disclosure of such credit card number and information to third parties as necessary to complete such billing operation. Verification of credit information, however, is accomplished solely by the User through the PIN authentication process.
 
8. Automatically Gathered Information Kazadu automatically collects your browser type and browser software version to tailor the presentation of the services to your browser and to maintain a record of your activity on the Platform. Kazadu uses cookies to enable Users to specify unique preferences and to track User trends and patterns. Users always have the option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences. If you disable cookies on your browser, please note that some parts of our Platform may not function as effectively or may be considerably slower. As an automatic process, our web server software records a log file of IP addresses that access the Platform. We also collect IP address information but do not ordinarily link IP addresses to Users' or Members' Personally Identifiable Information. However, we can and will use IP addresses to identify a User or Member when we, in our sole discretion, determine that it is necessary to enforce compliance with our various policies or to protect our service, Platform, customers or others.
 
9. Service Provider Profile As part of registration, you may set up your Service Provider Profile describing your experience, rates and qualifications. Some of the information requested in the Service Provider Profile registration is mandatory. If you decide to offer your services through Kazadu, potential Service Seekers will look to your Service Professional Profile, including customer ratings and reviews, to help them decide whether to make use of your services.
 
10. How We Use Personally Identifiable Information We use Personally Identifiable Information for our own internal purposes including contacting you via email to inform you about updates to our services and providing you with information relating to e-commerce transactions that you conduct on the Platform. We reserve the right to disclose your information as required by law. We do not rent or sell our User's or Members' Personally Identifiable Information to third parties. We do, however, provide you with the opportunity to receive communications via email or through the Kazadu Applications. You may opt out of receiving marketing emails or other communications at any time by modifying the Preferences section of your profile or by clicking on the unsubscribe link in any marketing email you receive from us. Kazadu may also use any information you provide through any use by you of the Kazadu Applications to assess and evaluate the methods of use of the Kazadu Applications or the Kazadu Platform, to evaluate and implement updates and improvements to the Kazadu Applications and the Kazadu Platform, and to ensure that the Kazadu Applications or the Kazadu Platform, are operating correctly and optimally. In the course of your use of the Kazadu Applications, Kazadu may gather and collect traffic and usage data, and use location information, including information collected from any IP address or global positioning system to enhance and improve services offered through the Kazadu Platform.
 
11. Use of General Data Kazadu reserves the right to use the general data it obtains from Users' and Members' use of the Platform, including all statistical information. You acknowledge that such data belongs to Kazadu and that Kazadu shall have the right to use such data as it determines in its sole discretion.
 
12. Advertising We may send you email or other communications including information that we may think may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving these marketing emails, via the Preferences section of your profile or by clicking on the unsubscribe link in any marketing email you receive from us. We do not send any of your Personally Identifiable Information to our advertisers. You may see a cookie from a third-party banner server, and this cookie comes from the third-party banner server, not Kazadu. Again, we do not pass along any Personally Identifiable Information to this party.
 
13. Co-Branded Services Kazadu enters into co-branding relationships with third-party web sites and companies to provide products and services to our Users and Members. Kazadu may share your Personally Identifiable Information, including User/Member ID and password, with certain co-branded third-party service or product Professionals as required to provide a specific product or service that you request from a co-branded page or co-branded site. However, these third-party partners may not use this Personally Identifiable Information for any reason other than to provide the service or product that the User/Member has explicitly signed up for. If you join Kazadu through a co-branded site (e.g., on a co-branded registration page), it is Kazadu's general policy not to share anything other than summarized or aggregated data with the partner; however, any Personally Identifiable Information you provide may also be received by the co-branded site and could be stored and used by the co-branded service or product provider according to their privacy policy. Please take the time to review these third-party privacy policies.
 
14. Third Party Intermediaries We use an outside credit card processing company to bill Users/Members for our upgraded services. We believe these companies do not retain, share, store, or use Personally Identifiable Information for any secondary purposes. Kazadu uses commercially reasonable efforts to restrict the third party vendors from using Personally Identifiable Information for purpose unrelated to the provision of services to Kazadu.
 
15. Service Providers Products or services provided by Service Providers to Service Seekers through Kazadu are completed by the Service Providers offering such products or services and not Kazadu. Service Providers and Service Seekers are not allowed to use Personally Identifiable Information except for the purpose of providing or receiving such products or services.
 
16. Reviews and Comments Submitted by Members Kazadu constantly seeks to improve the quality of the services we provide and the user experience on the Platform. Our Review and Comments feature is intended to provide organic, genuine and authentic information to provide Service Seekers and Service Seeker Members an opportunity to compare and connect with a Service Professional Member of their choosing. When leaving reviews or comments we may receive your email address, IP address or User ID and the city, state and country in which you are located. If you provide this information, we will only use it to acknowledge or respond to your comments or for informational purposes in order to better serve our users. Submitting comments or reviews will not cause you to receive any secondary or promotional material, unless specifically requested by you. We maintain the right to post your comments or reviews in marketing or promotional materials outside of our Site.
 
17. Security We will use commercially reasonable methods to keep Personally Identifiable Information securely in our files and systems. Our Payment Platform is operated using secure Internet connections, using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption, to help protect your financial data. We cannot, however, guarantee the security of your Personally Identifiable Information, particularly, as it travels over the Internet. As such, we encourage you to exercise caution in determining what information you disclose via the Internet.
 
18. Terminating Your Membership We save your Personally Identifiable Information until your membership with us is terminated. To terminate membership, contact Kazadu Customer Service as indicated on our contact page. If you terminate your membership, your Personally Identifiable Information cannot be recovered and you may continue to receive email communications for a short period of time until we have updated all of our databases. After termination of your membership, your Personally Identifiable Information may remain on our archived database and records for a reasonable time as residual information. We will not use this residual information for business development purposes but may retain it and use it in connection with internal business purposes, such as internal record keeping and legal compliance. We will maintain information on Users who have been removed for violating any of our User Policies.
