Other Websites, Data Processing and Safeguards
Our sites may contain links to other sites that we do not own or operate. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors and/or partners. We do not control, recommend or endorse and are not responsible for these sites or their content, products, services or privacy policies or practices. These other sites may send their own cookies to your Device, they may independently collect data or solicit personal information and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. You should also independently assess the authenticity of any site which appears or claims that it is one of our sites (including those linked to through an email or social networking page).
The sites and Services are U.S. based and subject to U.S. law, including applicable privacy and information security requirements. When you visit our sites, we may process information about you outside of the country in which you are located, including in the U.S. By using our Services, you consent to the transfer of information to countries outside of your country of residence, including the United States, which may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your personal information. We will protect information collected through this site as described in this Policy. Specifically, our cloud based servers are located in countries which may be located outside of the jurisdiction where we collected the data. This means that, when we collect your personal information, we may transfer it to or process it in any of the countries in which we do business. Also, some of the third-party service providers with which we may share personal information (as described above) are located in and may transfer personal information to various jurisdictions around the world. When we transfer personal data from the European Economic Area (EEA) to a jurisdiction outside the EEA, we deploy appropriate technical and organizational safeguards consistent with the requirements of applicable data protection law.
While Zipify has implemented administrative, technical and physical safeguards to assist in protecting the personal information we collect, please note that no electronic transmission of information can be entirely secure. We cannot guarantee that the security measures we have in place to safeguard personal information will never be defeated or fail, or that those measures will always be sufficient or effective. Please also be aware that we may use third-party cloud service providers that provide hosting, data storage and other services pursuant to standard terms and conditions that may be non-negotiable; these service providers have informed us or the general public that they apply security measures they consider adequate for the protection of information within their systems, or they have a general reputation for applying such measures. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below.
Our sites and Services are not directed to minors (children under the age of 18). We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose personally identifiable information from anyone under 18 years of age. If we determine upon collection that a user is under this age, we will not use or maintain their personal information without the parent/guardian’s consent. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personally identifiable information from a minor under the age of 18, we will make reasonable efforts to delete such information from our records.
