Your privacy is our main concern.
Your South Carolina Privacy Rights
South Carolina has passed legislation requiring certain specific disclosures be made available to South Carolina residents who use the Internet and provide information that may be used for marketing purposes. That legislation requires any business that discloses a customer’s personal information (as defined by the act) to any third party for direct marketing purposes to provide the customer a method for obtaining the names, addresses and certain other specified details of anyone who might have received that personal information.
If you are a South Carolina resident you may request this information from Medzooka.com or any of its affiliates by writing to us via email at info@Medzooka.com or you may send us correspondence at the following address: 1018 S. Batesville Road, Suite 3D, Attention: Customer Service, Greer, SC 29650. Medzooka.com is not obligated to respond to more than one such request from a customer per calendar year.

Medzooka.com collects various types of non-personally identifiable information from you to better meet your needs and to provide you with a more relevant user experience. Some of this information is collected automatically through cookies or other Internet tracking technologies.
Cookies are stored only if you select to save your password on the login screen. A cookie is created so that we are able to retrieve your settings.

This information includes your Internet protocol (IP) address, the browser type that you are using, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit URLs, the operating system on your computer, date/time stamp, and click stream data.

Use of Information:
Medzooka.com gathers information in an attempt to introduce business-to-business suppliers to consumers in order to satisfy their professional needs.
If you elect to provide us with personal information, we may utilize such information for marketing purposes, and this use may result in follow-up communications from Medzooka.com and from our clients. Once you sign up as a Provider, you will automatically be added to our email distribution list and will begin receiving additional information such as newsletters, updates and other publications.

The non-personally identifiable information that we collect is used for marketing and sales efforts to better target advertisements and other content in an effort to create a more personally relevant experience. The information is also used to predict responses to advertisements, and to help determine which ads perform best and which content is most appropriate for different individuals.
Ownership of Provider Information:
As the purpose of Medzooka.com is to match Providers with pre-approved Suppliers, information submitted for the purpose of receiving free quotes will be owned by Medzooka.com and will also become the property of the Suppliers in our Supplier Network who are referred to the Provider. By placing a request to receive free quotes, the Provider accepts this use of their information.
