How we use your information
Mezeo uses your information to help you complete a transaction or order, to communicate with you, to provide service and support, and to update you on services and benefits. We will give you the opportunity to choose your privacy preferences regarding communications with you (see section 5, “Your privacy preferences and opting out”). Credit card information may be taken and will be used only for payment processing and fraud prevention. Credit card information is not used for any other purpose by our financial services providers.
Personal data given to Mezeo may be transferred across state and country borders for the purposes of data consolidation, storage and simplified customer information management.
Non-personal data is aggregated for reporting about Mezeo website usability, performance and effectiveness. It is used to improve the customer experience, usability and site content.
Who we share your information with
Mezeo will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others. Mezeo will not share your personal information with third parties except for credit card processing and fraud prevention as described above in “How we use your information”. Third-party credit card processing service providers are required to keep confidential the information received on behalf of Mezeo and may not use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for Mezeo. These service providers may change or we may contract with additional service providers to better accommodate our customers. Mezeo will not share personal information with any other third parties without your permission, unless required by law enforcement action, subpoena, court order, or local law governing Mezeo.
Mezeo could merge with or be acquired by another business entity or some or all of its respective assets could be acquired. If such a combination or acquisition occurs, Mezeo will make every reasonable effort to notify you in the event we share with the merging or acquiring entity some or all of your personal information to continue serving you.
Your privacy preferences and opting out
Mezeo will not use your personal information for a different purpose than the one stated when you provided your data.
To opt-out of receiving communications you have expressly requested when you provided your data (such as e-mail newsletters, software updates, etc.), return to the Mezeo.com website where you originally registered your preferences and follow the opt-out instructions; alternatively, you can write to the Mezeo Privacy Office (Section 9 below) – be sure to provide your name, e-mail and postal address, and relevant information about your Mezeo subscriptions and registrations.
Access to and accuracy of your information
Mezeo strives to keep your personal information accurate. We have implemented technology, management processes and policies to maintain customer data accuracy. We provide you with access to your information, including making reasonable effort to provide you with online access and the opportunity to change your information. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as a password and user ID, before granting access to your data.
Keeping your information secure
To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of your personal information, Mezeo has in place appropriate physical and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect.
We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. SSL encryption is designed to make the information unreadable by anyone but us. This security measure is working when you see either the symbol of an unbroken key or closed lock (depending on your browser) on the bottom of your browser window. In addition, your credit card information is encrypted on our servers.
Credit card numbers are used only for processing payment and fraud prevention and are not used for other purposes.
The personal information that you provide in connection with registering yourself as a user of Mezeo products or services is classified as Registration Information. Registration Information is protected in several ways. Access by you to your Registration Information is available through a password and unique customer ID selected by you. This password is one way encrypted and therefore isn’t accessible to Mezeo employees. It is your responsibility to safeguard your password and user ID. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. In addition, your Registration Information resides on secure servers that only selected Mezeo personnel and contractors have access to via password.
Changes to this Statement
If there are updates to the terms of Mezeo’s Online Privacy Statement, we will post those changes and update the revision date in this document, so you will always know what information we collect online, how we use it, and what choices you have.
