ZooMonkey currently makes services available through our Sites, applications, which include mobile applications and applications available on social networking sites and other platforms, and our downloadable products (the Sites, the applications, the downloadable products and all services provided by ZooMonkey in connection therewith shall be referred to collectively as, the “Services”). ZooMonkey may offer additional services or products or modify or revise any of the Services at our discretion, and this Agreement will apply to all additional services or products and all modified or revised Services unless otherwise indicated. ZooMonkey also reserves the right to cease offering any of the Services. You agree that ZooMonkey shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, revision, suspension or discontinuance of any of the Services.
Your use of certain Services may be subject to additional terms and conditions, and such terms and conditions will be either listed in this Agreement, or will be presented or accessible to you by ZooMonkey when you sign up to use, or use, such Services (“Additional Terms”). All such Additional Terms are incorporated by reference into this Agreement unless otherwise indicated. This Agreement does not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with ZooMonkey for products, services or otherwise.
All visitors to our Sites, whether registered or not, are “users” of the Services for purposes of this Agreement. If you register for the Services by creating an account, you become a “Member”.
This Agreement and any policy or guideline of the Services may be modified by ZooMonkey in its sole discretion at any time, with or without notice. Any changes or modifications will be effective immediately upon posting the revisions to the Site, and you waive any right you may have to receive specific notice of such changes or modifications. Your continued use of the Services after the posting of changes or modifications will constitute your acceptance of such changes or modifications; therefore, you should frequently review this Agreement and all applicable terms and policies to understand the terms that apply to your use of the Services. If you do not agree to the amended terms, you must stop using the Services.
Because the Services are provided electronically, you must consent to ZooMonkey’s providing important information electronically if you wish to use the Services. You consent to being provided with this Agreement, notices, disclosures, information, policies and other materials in electronic form (collectively “Electronic Records”), rather than in paper form. Your consent to receive Electronic Records applies to all notices, disclosures, documents, records or other materials of any kind that ZooMonkey may be required to provide to you.
Electronic Records will be provided on our Sites and Services or sent to the email address associated with your account. You may wish to print out all Electronic Records and keep them for your records. If you have any trouble printing out, downloading, and/or accessing any Electronic Records, you may contact us in writing at the address provided above. In order for you to access and retain Electronic Records sent by ZooMonkey, you must have the following hardware and software: a computer or other access device capable of reading html and text files, a modem or other means of accessing the Internet, a browser capable of accessing and displaying the ZooMonkey website and the ability to receive and read emails. To print the Electronic Records, you will also need a printer.
You may withdraw your consent to receive Electronic Records by contacting us in writing at the address provided above. However, the Services provided by ZooMonkey are only available if you agree to receive Electronic Records, and you understand that withdrawing such consent will result in your account being deactivated. You can obtain a paper copy of an Electronic Record by contacting us in writing at the address provided above, provided that ZooMonkey may charge a reasonable fee to cover the costs of printing and sending the requested Electronic Record.

Third Party Advertisers. Any advertisers and advertising networks (which include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms) that serve ads or provide offers to our users, on our Services or on sites other than our websites, may also use their own cookies, web beacons, pixels and other tracking technologies. Such tracking technologies are governed by the privacy policies of the entities placing the ads, and are not subject to this Policy. You can visit networkadvertising.org [hyperlink] to see a list of advertising networks that typically serve these kinds of ads and to exercise your choice for those advertising networks. We do not control these advertisers or advertising networks or any other third parties whose websites may be linked from our Services or their practices. We recommend that your review the privacy statements of all third-party websites you visit.

SHARING PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES
Our Services allow you to share information about yourself with other individuals and other companies. Consider your own privacy and personal safety when sharing your information with anyone. Please review our Online Dating Safety Tips for tips. Also, when sharing information about others, please consider their safety and privacy and get their consent for that sharing.
We do not share your personal information with third parties other than as follows:
with your consent; for example, when you agree to our sharing your information with other third parties for their own marketing purposes subject to their separate privacy policies;
in connection with any merger, sale of company assets, reorganization, financing, change of control or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by another company or third party or in the event of bankruptcy; and
with third party vendors, consultants and other service providers that perform services on our behalf, in order to carry out their work for us.
We may also share information with others in an aggregated form that does not directly identify you.
Communications from Us. You can opt out of receiving promotional messages from us such as emails, text messages and telephone calls by visiting the “settings” page of your account. If you opt out of our promotional communications, we may still send you non-promotional messages about your account or our ongoing business relations.
Cookies. You can generally remove or block most cookies using the settings in your browser. In some cases, however, our third party vendors may employ “Flash” cookies to help us detect fraudulent or abusive uses of the Services and we or our third party advertisers may also use these cookies. Flash cookies are managed through a different interface than your web browser and you can access your Flash cookie settings here. If you choose to disable cookies, however, it may impact your ability to use our Services.
