Niconovum respects the privacy of adult consumers. Listed below is Niconovum’s privacy policy. It applies to the information we collect on this web site.

Niconovum's privacy policy took effect on August 1, 2012.

Adult Audience

This Niconovum website is intended for U.S. residents 18 years of age or older. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we know to be under the age of 18 and instruct these individuals not to send us any information. ZONNIC is not for sale to those under 18 years of age. If you are under 18 years of age, please seek guidance from a doctor.

If an individual wants to be removed from Niconovum's marketing mailing list, we make it easy to do so and we act promptly on all such requests. If at any time an individual wishes to be removed from Niconovum's marketing mailing list, he or she can write Niconovum at:

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Niconovum is committed to protecting the privacy of adult consumers who have requested to be on its marketing mailing list and the confidentiality of the personal information that they provide to us. Niconovum collects personal information that is voluntarily submitted to us to add adult consumers to its marketing mailing list at their request, to interact with these adult consumers, and to administer its business. Niconovum diligently strives to maintain recent and accurate information on the adult consumers on its marketing mailing list through customer surveys, customer initiated contacts, and responses to Niconovum's marketing programs (online and offline) as well as through address update services.

Niconovum may also collect non-personal information, including browser type and version, screen resolution, monitor color depth, AOL version (if applicable), operating system, JavaScript version, and connection speed. Niconovum merges this information with adult consumers' personal information. The non-personal information is used in two ways. First, it is used for an annual assessment of changes in web technology that enables Niconovum to better serve adult consumers on its marketing mailing list. Second, it is used for problem resolution when an adult consumer on its marketing mailing list contacts Niconovum' Consumer Relations Department with a problem accessing its website.

Niconovum may also share your information with third parties, as appropriate: (1) if we believe that there has been a violation of our web site policies; (2) if we believe that someone may be causing injury to our rights or property, other site users, or anyone else; (3) to respond to judicial process or to provide information to law enforcement agencies; (4) otherwise as required by law; or (5) in the event of a merger. However, Niconovum does not sell, rent, or give this information to other organizations or entities for marketing purposes.

Niconovum has strict policies and procedures in place to safeguard the privacy of adult consumers. Niconovum maintains adult consumers' information in a secure environment and grants access to it only in accordance with the Company's security standards. Sometimes it is necessary for us to share your information with third parties that perform services for us. When we contract with other parties to help us conduct our business, we require them to protect your personal information. Further, we do not permit them to use or store your personal information for any purpose other than the work they are doing on our behalf or as required by law. All Niconovum employees and others hired to work for us are held accountable for strictly adhering to these policies and procedures at all times.

Cookies are little pieces of information that a web site stores on your computer. Niconovum uses temporary cookies to increase the efficiency of web site visits and are deleted when adult consumers close their browsers.

Links to Other Sites

This site may contain "links" to other sites that we think might be of interest to you. Niconovum is not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by these "linked" sites.

Unsolicited Ideas

Although Niconovum appreciates people's interest in its business, it is the Company's policy to decline consideration of unsolicited ideas and suggestions offered or submitted by the general public. Niconovum relies on its research and marketing staffs for the generation and implementation of new concepts. This is necessary in order to avoid misunderstandings over the origin of particular ideas. Niconovum is constantly generating new ideas, many of which Niconovum cannot use until years after they were first conceived. Accordingly, Niconovum does not accept unsolicited ideas for consideration, and asks you not to submit ideas for products, advertising, etc.

Changes To This Policy

As our business changes, Niconovum reserves the right to change its Policy and Privacy Statements. We will update this page and the effective date listed above when we do so. You should check our privacy policy frequently on this web site to see recent changes.
