ZipSendr Privacy Policy

 

At ZipSendr, your privacy is important to us. In this privacy policy, we tell you what information we collect, share with others, and how we use it to facilitate deliveries by drivers to customers.

 

ZipSendr allows people using our technology and services to have merchandise purchased from participating retailers to be delivered directly to a person's doorstep. ZipSendr knows that users of our technology and services care about how their personal information can be used and shared, and ZipSendr takes privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy. By visiting the ZipSendr website or using our technology or services, you are accepting the practices outlined in this privacy policy ("Privacy Policy").

This Privacy Policy covers ZipSendr's treatment of personal information that ZipSendr may gather when you use our technology or services. In order to enable ZipSendr's technology and services to deliver merchandise you order from a participating retailer, we will need certain personal information. You (or if the retailer has made ZipSendr a part of its order process, such retailer), will need to provide information about your order (which contains personal information), to ZipSendr. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of participating retailers, third parties that ZipSendr does not own or control, or to individuals that ZipSendr does not employ or manage. Participating merchants and retailers may have their own privacy policies that you should carefully review before providing them with your personal information.

BY USING OUR SERVICES, WHETHER VIA www.ZipSendr.com, WEB PLATFORM OR MOBILE APPLICATIONS, AND/OR BY OTHERWISE GIVING US ANY INFORMATION, YOU AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY.  If you do not agree with the Privacy Policy, you should not use our services or give us any personal information.  You should also review ZipSendr’s Terms and Conditions, which also apply to your use of the ZipSendr Services, Platforms, and Applications.

Our Policy:

Welcome to the web site (the "Site") of ZipSendr of ZipSendr, Inc. ("ZipSendr", "we", "us" and/or "our"). This Site ZipSendr is operated by ZipSendr, Inc. and has been created to provide information about our company and our delivery and tracking technology, mobile applications and related services (together with the Site, the "Services") to our Service visitors ("you", "your").

This Privacy Policy sets forth ZipSendr's policy with respect to information including personally identifiable data ("Personal Data") and other information that is collected from visitors to the Site and Services.

We may collect personal information from various sources, including information you provide directly to ZipSendr, information when you use our Services, and information from third parties.  When you interact with us through the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below: Personal Data That You Provide Through the Services: We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys, register for access to the Services or use certain Services. Wherever ZipSendr collects Personal Data we make an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy. By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data to the Services, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of ZipSendr and the authorized third parties referred to herein located in the United States.

Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. ZipSendr may share such information with third parties for any lawful purpose, or such information may be stored or included in databases owned and maintained by ZipSendr affiliates, agents or service providers. The Services may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process. In operating the Services, we may use a technology called "cookies." A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Services gives to your browser when you access the Services. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Services and help us analyze Services usage more accurately. For instance, our Site may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Services without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site. In all cases in which we use cookies, we will not collect Personal Data except with your permission. On most web browsers, you will find a "help" section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive a notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Service features.



Aggregated Personal Data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, ZipSendr often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and ZipSendr may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. ZipSendr may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.



Location Information: Our Service may collect and use your location information (for example, by using the GPS on your mobile device) to provide certain functionality of our Service. If you choose to enable our location features, your location information may be publicly displayed within the Service. We may also use your location information in a non-identifiable or aggregate way, as described above in the "Non-Identifiable Data" and "Aggregated Personal Data" sections.



Third-Party Services: The Services may collect certain Personal Data which you or third parties provide to various social networking services like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or LinkedIn ("Social Networking Services") or other third-party merchant applications with whom we partner (collectively, "Third Party Service(s)"). By directly integrating your Third Party Service(s), we make your experience with the Service richer and more relevant. We may ask you to log into or grant us permission via the relevant Third Party Service.

 

When you add a Third Party Service account to the Service or log into the Service using your Third Party Service account, we will collect relevant information necessary to enable the Service to access that Third-Party Service, information that you have provided to the Third Party Service, and Personal Information relating to third parties which such third parties have made available to you through the Third Party Service. We will use, store and disclose such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

You may also have the option of posting your Services activities to the Third Party Service when you access content through the Services (for example, you may post to Facebook that you performed an activity on the Service); you acknowledge that if you choose to use this feature, your friends, followers, and subscribers on any Social Networking Services you have enabled will be able to view such activity.

Mobile Device Address Book: The Services may also collect the Personal Data relating to third parties stored in your mobile device address book, including without limitation email addresses and phone numbers. Depending on your mobile device operating system, the Services may request your permission to access such Personal Data.



Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information: ZipSendr uses the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by email, we will use the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. Also, if you provide Personal Data about yourself, or have permitted the Services to collect Personal Data of third parties from Third Party Services or your mobile device address book ("Third Party Personal Data"), in order to obtain access to the Services or to make use of particular features of the Services, we will use your Personal Data and Third-Party Personal Data to provide you with access to such services and to monitor your use of such services.

The Services may permit you to connect or communicate with third parties using Third-Party Personal Data, including to refer such third party to the services or to share tracking information. If you use the Services to connect with a third party, ZipSendr may use Third-Party Personal Data to contact such third party by email or SMS messaging, and may also send subsequent reminders to such third party from time to time, which third parties may "opt-out" of receiving.

You may have the option of creating a unique username ("Username") using the Services. When you create a Username, third parties users may view and access your name and your city and state of residence. You may change your settings to restrict which parties can access the Personal Data connected with your Username.
