The Zoological Society may also collect, use and disclose information that is not Personally Identifiable Information (for example, we may keep track of, use and/or disclose aggregate statistics regarding the number of visitors to our website and other information that does not uniquely identify you).

The Zoological Society may also ask for your permission to send you, if you wish, e-mail promotions and other information that may be of interest to you from The Zoological Society partners or other third parties. You are of course free to accept or reject this request to receive such third party information.
