This online Privacy Policy continues our commitment to serve you and protect your privacy online. This site exists to allow for and promote interaction surrounding the prevention and control of mosquito-borne diseases and other health threats. By interacting with our website, visitors may provide statistical or personal information about themselves either anonymously or not as they may choose.

Please read through this policy carefully so that you understand our practices around protecting your privacy.

Is MosquitoZone responsible for information in websites they link to? 

We may provide hyperlinks or pointers to other websites maintained by third parties or may provide third-party content on our website by framing or other methods. The links to third-party websites are provided for your convenience and information only. The content in any linked website is not under our control so we are not responsible for the content, including any further links in a third party website. If you decide to access any of the third-party sites linked to our website, you do this entirely at your own risk. It is up to you to take precautions to ensure that the third party you link to for your use is free of computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other items of a destructive nature.

What information does MosquitoZone.com gather/track from its visitors? 

Visits to MosquitoZone.com are monitored and we accumulate statistical information about our website visitors, including such things as number of visits to the site, the pages visited, the domains the visitors come from and the browsers people use to navigate our site. This information is important to allow us to evaluate the effectiveness of the services we provide, to monitor our site performance, and to make it easier for visitors to use our site.

These statistics are anonymous, and none of this information identifies you personally.

To use certain features on our site, we ask you to register. When you do this, we collect personally identifiable information about you such as your name, employer, location, user name and password as well as information about your interests. We may ask you for personal information when you enter a contest or sweepstakes, or complete a survey. We use this information to process your request or to help improve our site.

When personally identifiable information is collected, you will know because you will have to fill out a form of some kind.

Do Contests and Special Offers on your site track information differently? 

On occasion, MosquitoZone collects additional personal information from subscribers in connection with optional contests or special offers. If this information is to be shared with a third party, we will notify you at the time of collection.

How does MosquitoZone.com utilize cookies? 

MosquitoZone employs cookies to recognize you and your access privileges on our site, as well as to track site usage. MosquitoZone.com uses cookies to store visitor preferences, allow participation in polls and rating features, record session information, gather general information about its audience, store and measure traffic patterns on the site, and track information about you and the way you use the site. As MosquitoZone.com improves its service and offers its users more ability to customize their experience and the content they view, cookies may be used to assist in that personalization process.

Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us e-mail addresses or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering with our site.

Subscribers who do not accept cookies from the domain "mosquitozone.com" cannot access certain areas on our site. If you refuse all cookies, or refuse particular cookies, you will not be able to use some of the features of MosquitoZone.com, including, but not limited to, opinion polls and personalized or customized features.

What does MosquitoZone.com do with the information it gathers/tracks? 

Our primary goal in collecting information is to provide you with a customized experience when visiting our site and to make our site more useful to you.

MosquitoZone.com will not sell, rent, swap, or authorize any third party to use any information that specifically identifies you. In some instances, we use third party companies to help us provide our products and services to you, like a shipping company that delivers a package or an e-mail delivery service that sends out our e-mails and e-newsletters. In those instances we need to share your information with them. We require that those companies use the information only to deliver the product or service.

We may be required to release personal information as described in Compliance with Legal Process below.

With whom does MosquitoZone.com share the information it gathers/tracks? 

MosquitoZone.com shares the information it gathers, in aggregate form only, with advertisers and other partners. We will not release personal information about you as an individual to third parties, except under the circumstances described in Compliance with Legal Process below. You can review and modify all of your personal information provided during the free registration process at any time by going to the registration section of our website.

What is your policy surrounding e-mail? 

If you so elect at registration MosquitoZone.com will periodically send you promotional e-mail about MosquitoZone. Additionally, the e-mail address provided by you at registration may be used by MosquitoZone to contact you regarding (1) account status (including confirmation of registration), (2) major changes to the website and or to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, and (3) participation in user surveys, asking for feedback on the website and existing or prospective products and services, as well as information to better understand our users. User surveys greatly help us to improve our website, and any information we obtain in such surveys will not be shared with third parties, except in aggregate form.

The “Send this site to a friend” feature is an easy way for MosquitoZone.com users to send articles and pages through e-mail. The e-mail address(es) that you supply to use this service will only be used to send the requested article.

We use e-mail links located in the Contact Us area of our site to allow you to contact us directly with any questions or comments you may have. We will use your e-mail address to respond directly to these questions or comments.

Do you have measures in place to keep my information secure? 

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to protect the information we collect online.

We urge you to keep your password in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also remember to sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This ensures that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library or Internet cafe.

How do I change or update my personal information? 

The Registration center is a centralized area where you can manage your relationship with MosquitoZone.com. There are a number of things you can do in this area to ensure your personal information is accurate and up to date. At the top right of each page, there is a link to Your Account where you can gain secure access to update the information you provided during the free registration process.  The first page will give you the option to change information that was required to register (e-mail, password, zip code, and so on).  If you want to further change your profile, including preferences on MosquitoZone.com e-mailing you, go into the Edit My Profile where all of these items can be changed.  On this page there is an option to sign up for our e-mail newsletters and manage your delivery options. In order to gain access to the areas of the Registration containing personal information, you will be asked to re-enter your password.
