In order to do so, you will provide us with your username or other user ID on each of the Third Party Services that you choose to link to. You may also be required to engage in an authorization process with each of those Third Party Services, where we receive a token that allows us to access those accounts so that we can, for example, when you choose, post your Zocle.com content, or links to your Zocle.com content, to those services.

We do not sell or otherwise share subscriber lists or Personal Information. We may disclose your Personal Information to contractors and service providers only if and in so far as this is necessary for technical administration and maintenance of our Services.

Non-Personal Information Collected

We collect information about how people use the Services offered on Zocle.com, but this information does not include any data that personally identifies you. Rather, this information includes general usage information, and may include information such as the number and frequency of our visitors, which pages or features of the Services they have visited, which links on the Services they have clicked on, and the length of those visits. We may also look for and tag keywords and subjects in user content, so that we can track interest levels of users and rank those interests. Additionally, we may collect information related to your location, such as by converting your IP address into a geographic location, as well as information related to your mobile device if you access Zocle.com in that manner, such as by converting the GPS signals sent by your mobile device or using sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers. We may also use third party applications and services to collect and analyze this information. The information we collect in this manner enables us and third parties authorized by us to figure out how individuals use the Services so that we can analyze, improve and personalize them. Also, Zocle.com is a free service that is supported by advertising revenues. The collection of this information permits our advertisers to target ads to you that are relevant to your interests. Ad targeting is fully automated, does not involve information that personally identifies you and no humans read your content in order to target ads. Some of this information may be associated with the IP Address (as defined below) used to access the Services of the Site, and some may be associated with your registered account, such as the topics you search for and webpages that you visit or link to through your Zocle.com dashboard. We may also use some of this information in aggregate form– as a statistical measure related to all of our users– and again this collection of data would not identify you personally.
