Privacy Policy

Updated August 21, 2016

Generally

This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for zenpype.com (“zenpype,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) and its family of websites and mobile applications, including but not limited to zenpype.com, its associated sub-pages, and our mobile applications (collectively the “Site” and, collectively with all the services provided thereon, referred to as the “Services”), and explains how we use the personal information collected from anyone who accesses or uses the Site in any way (“you,” “your,” or “User”). This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by us and not to any third party websites that it may link to. It will notify you of the following:

  • What personally identifiable information is collected from you by us through your use of the Services, how it is used, and with whom it may be shared;
  • What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data;
  • The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information; and
  • How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

Personally Identifiable Information

Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) means information that can be used to identify a certain individual User, including Contact Data (e.g., your name, address, or email address), and Demographic Data (e.g., zip code, gender, or age). PII is captured only when a User accesses the Services and willingly discloses that information. We may collect information from a third party that is not a User as necessary, but we only use this information for the sole purpose of administering Services to those persons. We will ask you to create a username and upload a photo when you register your account. Unless you choose to disclose PII to us, we will not publicly display your personal information – by default only a username and a picture will be displayed (we encourage you not include PII in your username). If you turn on location services while using the Services, it will display your approximate location. Your contact information that you have entered into our database, such as your name, address, and email address, is collected by the Site but by default is not publicly displayed. Similarly, please be aware that if you sign up or sign in to the Services using a third party social network (e.g. Facebook or Instagram), you will be disclosing information to us that you have made available on that network, and we may collect that information. By default, we will not share your information for marketing purposes, but this Privacy Policy does not cover what other Users may do with your information. You may choose not to provide PII to us and may continue to use the Services, but please be aware that features of the Site and Services may be limited.

Terms of Service

Please refer to our Terms of Use information on our other policies and guidelines for use of the Services.  In the event of any conflicting terms between this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service, the Terms of Service shall control.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

  • By using the Services, you hereby license to zenpype, so long as you are a registered User, the ability to use the information we collect from you for zenpype’s internal use. This means you still own your information and that we will not sell or rent this information to anyone without your express consent to do so. We only have access to and collect information that you voluntarily give us via the sign-up process, your email(s) to us, or other direct contact from you, so if at anytime there is information that you do not want to share with us, please do not do so or please cease using the Services.
  • We may collect a variety of User data that does not contain PII, such as IP addresses, ISP information, date/time stamps, or browser settings. Our services automatically recognize this type of information (“User Data”). We also may collect Traffic Data, which is information about the types of Users that use the Site. We may use Traffic Data to analyze Site Traffic, display contenting according to your preferences, or to administer the Site, but this information is not examined for PII. User Data and Traffic Data may be shared with business partners, affiliates, or advertisers on an aggregated and anonymous basis.
  • If we sell or otherwise transfer part or the whole of zenpype or our assets to another organization (e.g., merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, or liquidation), your information such as name and email address, and any other information collected through your use of the Services may be among the items sold or transferred. You will always continue to own your personal information. Any buyer or other transferee will continue to honor these commitments in this Privacy Policy.
  • We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request (e.g. to respond to inquiries about content of the Services).  As per our Terms of Use and in order to cooperate with legitimate governmental requests, subpoenas or court orders, to protect our systems and users, or to ensure the integrity and operation of the Services and the services we provide, our company, personnel and our systems, we may access and disclose any information we consider necessary or appropriate, including, but not limited to, IP addresses and traffic information, usage history, and posted material or content.
  • Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this Privacy Policy. We do this to keep you updated about developments here at zenpype, but if at any time you do not want to be contacted, please feel free to unsubscribe or delete your account. Generally, you may not opt-out of service-related or transactional communications that are not promotional. If you do not wish to receive service-related communication, you may terminate delete your account.
  • We do not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals.

Private Messaging

Our services allow Users to contact other Users. Users must approve the sending Users’ message before the receiving User can see any of that User’s PII, at which point the parties will be able to see certain PII about one another. Users may also share additional PII or other information by attaching, uploading or sharing attachments (e.g. photos). Please be advised that while we reserve the right to monitor messaging services, we do not actively do so and we are not responsible for their contents, or how they use PII you may share with them. You message and communicate with other Users at your own risk, which includes any attachments you send or receive.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

As noted above, you may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the contact information given at the bottom of the Terms of Use to:

  • See what data we have about you, if any;
  • Change/correct any data we have about you;
  • Have us delete any data we have about you; or
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data.

Please note that even if you delete your account, request us to delete your account, or your account is otherwise terminated, any PII, content, submission, or other posting or communication to you submitted to the Site prior to such deletion or termination shall not be removed unless we chose to do so at our option and in our sole discretion.

Data Retention

At a minimum, we will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you services, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. We may maintain some or all of this data in its archives even after it has been removed from the Site.

Security

  • We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the Services, your information is protected both online and offline by our security protocol.
  • Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
  • While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
  • This Site uses industry-standard SSL encryption for PII. Unfortunately, no data transmission is guaranteed to be 100% secure and we therefore cannot guarantee the security of information transmit through the Site, and you provide all information at your own risk. WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR THE THEFT, LOSS, OR INTERCEPTION OF, OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR DAMAGES TO, YOUR DATA OR COMMUNICATIONS BY USING THE SITE AND OUR SERVICES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND ASSUME THESE RISKS. IF YOU BELIEV YOUR PRIVACY HAS BEEN BREACHED THROUGH THE USE OF OUR SITE OR SERVICES, PLEASE CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY AT [email protected]

Cookies

We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a Site User’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site.

Web Beacons

We employ software technologies (such as Google Analytics) that use clear gifs, or “web beacons” that help us track referrals from our partners or affiliates and better manage content to and on our Site. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Users.

Third Party Tracking

This Privacy Policy does not cover the use of tracking technologies by our service providers, technology partners, or other third party assets (such as social media links or our newsletter service provider) on the Site. These third parties may use cookies, clear gifs, images, and scripts to help them better manager their content on our Site. It is important for you to understand that we do not have access or control over these third party technologies. We are not responsible for the content that appears on third party sites and we do not endorse those sites.

We encourage Users to be aware when they leave the Services and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information. zenpype is not liable and cannot be held liable for your use of any third party website or APIs.

We encourage you to read Facebook’s Terms and Privacy Policy, Twitter’s Terms and Privacy Policy, and Instagram’s Terms and Privacy Policy to understand what information they may collect and how it is used.

We also use the secure billing vendor Stripe, which stores any credit card information you provide. This vendor only permits zenpype to make charges against any credit card you share with them; we do not store your credit card or payment information. We also encourage you to read their Terms and Privacy Policy to understand how they collect and use such information.
