Visitors. Like most mobile application and website operators, Zipappeal, LLC (“Zipappeal") Zipappeal collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Zipappeal’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Zipappeal’s visitors use its mobile application and website. From time to time, Zipappeal may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Zipappeal also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users for purposes such as recording the user’s signature on documents. Zipappeal only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information. We may collect and store any personal information you enter in our mobile application and website, or provide to us in some other manner. This includes identifying information, such as your name, address, ip address, email address, and telephone number, drivers license number, social security number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information such as your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information). We may also request information about your interests and activities, financial background or other information, your gender and age, and other demographic information such as your hometown or your username for purposes of better serving you.

We may receive information about you from third party social platforms, such as Facebook. When you access or use our mobile application or website, you allow us to access or collect information made available by the third party site in accordance with its privacy policy.

Disclosure and Use of Certain Personally-Identifying Information. Zipappeal discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, governmental organizations, and affiliated organizations that need to know that information in order to process it on Zipappeal’s behalf or to provide services available at Zipappeal’s mobile application or website. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Zipappeal’s mobile applications or websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Zipappeal will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, governmental organizations to process savings requests, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Zipappeal discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Zipappeal believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Zipappeal, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of Zipappeal, Zipappeal will occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, your savings filing status, solicit your feedback, alert you if we need a different credit card number, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Zipappeal and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Zipappeal takes reasonable measures to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

We take reasonable security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. We want you to feel confident using our mobile application and website to transact business. However, no system can be completely secure.

Business Transfers. If Zipappeal, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Zipappeal goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Zipappeal may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
