Please be informed that Zzzing (“Company”, “us”, “we”, or “our”) uses cookies on www.zzzing.com (the “Website”).

Our Cookie Policy explains what cookies are, how we use cookies, how third parties we may partner with may use cookies on the Website, your choices regarding cookies and further information about cookies

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file (typically numbers and letters) that is downloaded onto ‘terminal equipment’ (e.g. your computer or smartphone) when the user accesses a website using that device. Cookies are then sent back to originating website on each subsequent visit – and they are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and store some information about your preferences or past actions.  Additionally, we use ‘Local Shared Objects’ i.e. Flash Cookies. These cookies are stored locally and are available to all browsers you may use.

 

Neither cookies nor flash cookies can be used to access or use other information on your computer, other than information related to your usage of the Website. We only use these methods to track your use of our services. Cookies help us monitor traffic to the site, improve our services and make it easier and/or more relevant for your use. We use flash cookies and third-party cookies to help us show you more relevant and desirable advertisements.

 

Cookies can be divided into several categories:

 

Some cookies are needed for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network – others may be necessary for the provision of a service over the internet, in which case they have to be used. These are termed as ‘strictly necessary’.

 

Other cookies may be desirable to improve your experience, such as statistic and marketing cookies, in which case we will ask you for your consent to use them.
