Privacy Policy

zoneedit does not in any way share the personal information that you have included in the personal information section of your zoneedit member pages. Your information is neither sold nor rented to any third party or information collection organization and is used solely for the administration of your zoneedit account.

Your zoneedit membership information:

The information collected by zoneedit, including name, address, company name, email address, phone number and fax number, is used to validate the authenticity of requests made by individuals or organizations with respect to information contained in their zoneedit account, or in response to a lost password or lost user ID issue. We may also use the information to contact members with important system or account information, changes to services, and other important zoneedit updates. With the members permission we may also use the information to provide updates on new services and other special announcements.

The answers supplied to the secret questions selected during the sign up process may be used in concert with personal email addresses and phone numbers to assist zoneedit members in the generation of new passwords during the automated password recovery process. The questions and answer pairs may also be used by zoneedit support staff to authenticate various requests by our members made directly via email and telephone.

Personal information that exists within a zoneedit account will remain active until the member has requested that the account be deleted or until the account and the information contained within has been deleted during the routine deletion of dormant and unused zoneedit member accounts.

Public Whois information:

All registered domain names are required by ICANN to contain accurate, publicly accessible whois information including the names, address and telephone numbers of all listed contacts.

zoneedit members may choose to use their personal information as the public whois information for domain names registered with zoneedit. However, whois information is not private information and cannot be protected by zoneedit under this privacy policy.

For an example of what Whois information looks like please visit easyWhois™ and perform a Whois lookup on “”.

Our Use of Cookies

We do not collect personal information without your knowledge and permission, nor do we resell or distribute any site visitor data, including information that may be collected as a natural by-product of your visit.

For general information on what cookies are and what they can and can’t do for you, take a quick look at our help data below.

The widespread concern about cookies has very little to do with the technology and very much to do with the fear that unscrupulous site operators might use cookies for unacceptable practices.

zoneedit only uses cookies to remember certain things about you between visits to our site, and as you move between pages on the site.

Our Web site utilizes cookies in order to provide you with a better experience. For security reasons (even though only we can read the cookies we send you), zoneedit will only store a unique identifying number in the cookie we send. We never store your username, password, credit card information, or any other personal information about you in our cookie.

Cookie FAQ

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a very small text file placed on your hard drive by a website.

Why use cookies?

Cookies are the easiest way to tell the website you are visiting that you have returned. They also provide a way to store information about you between visits.

Are they harmful?

No. Here are a list of things that a cookie can’t do:

  • it can’t deliver viruses to your computer
  • it can’t be read by any website other than the one that gave it to you
  • it can’t allow us to read files or sensitive information on your hard drive
  • it can’t reveal personal information about yourself, where you live, what your income is, or any other piece of personal information that you don’t explicitly provide

Where can I find more information on cookies?

A search for “internet cookies” or “persistent cookies” on any search engine should provide a wealth of links to more information. dmoz has a fairly comprehensive list of some of the best resources.
