HOW WE PROTECT AND STORE PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

Throughout this policy, we use the term "personal information" to describe information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person. This Privacy Policy does not apply to personal information that has been anonymized so that it does not and cannot be used to identify a specific user. Zeropond takes reasonable precautions, as described herein, to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

 

Zeropond implements a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you subscribe for a Service, or enter, submit, or access your personal information on your Account. For example, we offer the use of a secure server. All supplied personal information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our servers. We store your personal information securely throughout the life of your Account. Zeropond will retain your personal information for a minimum of five years or as necessary to comply with our legal obligations or to resolve disputes.

 

HOW WE USE THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

 

Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a secure, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. We may use your personal information to: provide the Services; provide customer support you may request; process transactions and send notices about your transactions; resolve disputes, collect fees; troubleshoot problems; investigate potentially Prohibited Activities and/or violations of our posted Terms of Service; customize, measure, and improve Services and the content and layout of our website and applications; deliver targeted marketing, service update notices, and promotional offers based on your communication preferences; and verify your identity by comparing your personal information against third-party databases.

 

We will not use your personal information for purposes other than those purposes we have disclosed to you, without your permission.

 

MARKETING

 

We will never sell or rent your personal information to third parties.

 

HOW WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH OTHER PARTIES

 

We may share your personal information with:

·       Third party identity verification services in order to confirm your identity, or to prevent fraud or other Prohibited Activities. This allows Zeropond to confirm your identity by comparing the information you provide us to public records and other third party databases. These service providers may create derivative data based on your personal information that can be used solely in connection with provision of identity verification and services to prevent fraud and Prohibited Activities;

·       Service providers under contract who help with parts of our business operations such as data, Internet, network and technology services. Our contracts require these service providers to only use your information in connection with the services they perform for us, and prohibit them from selling your information to anyone else;

·       Companies or other entities that we may merge with or be acquired by. Should such a combination occur, we will require that the new combined entity follow this Privacy Policy with respect to your personal information. You will receive prior notice of any change in applicable policy;

·       Companies or other entities that purchase Zeropond assets pursuant to a court-approved sale under U.S. Bankruptcy law;

·       Law enforcement agencies, government authority, or other third parties when:

o   We are compelled to do so by a facially valid subpoena, court order, or similar legal procedure; or

o   We believe in good faith that the disclosure of personal information is necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss, to investigate and report suspected Prohibited Activities or to investigate violations of our Terms of Service; and

·       Other third parties with your consent or direction to do so.

 

In general, we will notify you of material changes to this policy by updating the last updated date at the top of this page, and we will provide you with explicit notice of material changes as required by law. We recommend that you visit this page frequently to check for changes.

 

HOW YOU CAN ACCESS OR CHANGE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

You may correct or amend your personal information, request that your personal information be deleted, or close your Account, by emailing us at info@zeropond.com This right shall only be limited where the burden or expense of correcting, amending or deleting such information or closing your Account would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy in the case in question, or where the rights of persons other than you would be violated. If you close your Zeropond account, we will mark your Account in our database as "Closed," but will keep your Account information in our database for a period of time described above. This is necessary in order to deter fraud or other Prohibited Activities, by ensuring that persons who try to commit fraud or other Prohibited Activities will not be able to avoid detection simply by closing their Account and opening a new Account. However, if you close your Account, your personally identifiable information will not be used by us for any further purposes, nor sold or shared with third parties, except as necessary to prevent fraud or other Prohibited Activities and assist law enforcement, as required by law, or in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

 

Third party links

 

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include links to third party websites or offer third party products or services on the Zeropond Site. These third party websites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nevertheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
