3.1 ZipCard is committed to protecting the personal information that you provide to us when using the ZipCard Site. This Online Privacy Statement describes how we treat all user data collected during your visit to the ZipCard Site, both anonymous data and personally-identifying data.
The ZipCard may occasionally update this Statement. We will post any changes on this Web page, so be sure to check back periodically.

Any information that you submit after a change has been posted will be subject to the new provisions.
3.2 We collect two types of User Data: (1) anonymous data that is automatically collected from all visitors to the ZipCard Site; and (2) personally-identifiable data that you voluntarily submit to us (described below under "Personal Data").
Anonymous Data. We automatically collect Internet Protocol addresses and domain names through our server and through cookies. (See the section on Cookies below for more information.) We also track the number and frequency of hits per page on an aggregate basis.
