PRIVACY POLICY

 

Thank you for your interest in the Zaka App (the “App”) made available by Zaka, Inc., a Delaware corporation, (hereinafter, “Zaka,” “us,” “we,” “our”).  The terms “you”, “your”, and “yours” refer to anyone downloading, installing or using the App.

Your personal privacy is important to us.  This Privacy Policy, effective July 1, 2014, explains our information practices and has been incorporated by reference into the End User License Agreement that governs your use of the App.  Please read carefully to understand when do we collect your information, what type of information do we collect, how we collect, how we use, with whom do we share and what steps do we take to protect your information.  By downloading, installing or using the App, you consent to the collection and use of your information as outlined in the Privacy Policy.

 

WHEN DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION?

We may collect information about you anytime you interact with us such as when you (i) download and install the App, (ii) communicate with us either by e-mail or over the phone, (iii) request information about our products, or (iv) interact with the App and you select to report the App’s statistics to us.

 

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

Information we collect is generally of two types – personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.  Personally identifiable information comprises any information, which can help us identify or locate an individual, including, without limitation, an individual’s name, address, e-mail address, telephone number and credit card number.  Non-personally identifiable information comprises information that does not by itself identify an individual and generally includes anonymous information about an individual’s use of the App, for example, information type of mobile device used, type of network accessed, the type of operating system on your mobile device, sites you have visited, network performance and the options selected when using the App.

 

HOW DO WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION? AND WHY?

We collect personally identifiable information only when you specifically and knowingly disclose such information.  For example, we collect your email address when you send us a feedback that includes your email address, or when you email us a feedback.  If you disclose your personal information, we will only store and use such information that we need to meet your requests and our legitimate business objectives.  We primarily use your personal information to provide you an improved and customized online experience and service.  We may also use the information we collect from you for the purpose of providing you with customer service, to comply with any requirements of law and to sell such data to merchants who use our products and services and may have relevant products or services to you.  In order to effectively track referrals provide the services through the App, we may disclose personal information limited only to your Zaka profile to merchants who use the App, only if you accept such a referral.  Such information may include, but is not limited to, your name and profile picture.

 

HOW DO WE COLLECT LOCATION INFORMATION?  AND WHY?

The App deals with location information, so we need to know your location.  Whenever you open and use the App on your mobile device, we use the location information to tailor the App experience to your current location.  Also, the App may use your “background location” to provide the Service and send you notifications of businesses near you.  If you have “background location” turned on, the App will, from time to time, tell us the location of your mobile device, even if you are not interacting directly with the App.

 

HOW DO WE COLLECT YOUR NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION? AND WHY?

We will automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information each time you use the App.  For this purpose, we may use certain technology.  We collect anonymous information about our users so that we can understand how users are using the App and improve our App.  This information includes, without limitation, network types, browser types, broad demographic information and navigational data.

Cookies

Our website may contain “cookies.”  Cookies are bits of electronic information generated by web servers and stored on your hard drive when you visit practically any website on the Internet.  Cookies are often used to differentiate users, store user preferences and track user trends in general.  We may use cookies to improve the quality of our website and to better understand how users interact with our website.  We do not use cookies to retrieve individual personally identifying information about you from your computer unless you knowingly and willingly provide such information.  You can adjust your web browser security settings to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.  However, if you disable the use of cookies in your web browser, some features of our website we offer may not function properly.

 

HOW DO WE SHARE THE INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT?

General

Personal information which we collect for a particular purpose will only be saved and used for that purpose, unless you have agreed to allow us to use it for some other purpose, as described in this Privacy Policy.  We sometimes share non-personal information with other third parties about our user base, but that information does not include any personally identifiable information.

Our Service Providers and Strategic Partners

We may disclose your personally identifiable information to our service providers and strategic partners.  These third party service providers and partners will have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes.

Enforcement

We may disclose your personally identifiable information or otherwise use such information to communicate with you if required or permitted to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (i) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process or governmental requests; (ii) protect and defend our rights or property and that of our users and licensors; (iii) enforce our applicable service agreements; or (iv) protect the personal safety or interests of our employees and consultants, other users of the App, or members of the public in urgent circumstances.  We may also disclose any of your personal information to law enforcement or other appropriate third parties in connection with criminal investigations, investigation of fraud, infringement of intellectual property rights, or other suspected illegal activities, or as otherwise may be required by applicable law, or, as we deem necessary in our sole discretion, in order to protect our legitimate legal and business interests.

Aggregated General Information

We may share aggregated general information about our App with our corporate partners, investors, advertisers or others.  Aggregate general information includes without limitation the number of users of our App, usage statistics and user feedback.  Aggregated general information does not include any personally identifying information that could be used to contact or identify you.

Change of Control

In the event that another company acquires all or substantially all of our assets, or if we experience some other change of control event such as merger, insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership, we reserve the right to include any or all user-related information among the assets transferred to the acquiring company.  We cannot guarantee that any entity receiving such information in connection with any of these transactions will comply with all the terms of this policy.

 

SECURITY

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to, or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of, users’ information.  We restrict access to your personally identifying information to employees who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve the App.  Our servers are protected by firewalls and are physically located in secure data facilities to further increase security.  We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology for mutual authentication, data encryption and data integrity.  While no computer is 100% safe from outside attacks, we believe that the steps we have taken to protect your personal information drastically reduce the likelihood security problems to a level appropriate to the type of information involved.  If you have any questions regarding which measures and techniques we use, feel free to contact us.

 

INTEGRITY

During the online account registration process you can review, change or remove the information you have submitted.  We aim to keep our information about you as accurate as possible and encourage you to promptly update your information if it changes.  You may, at any time, access your information to update, modify or delete any inaccuracies by accessing your account through the App.  You may also request us to remove your account information from our databases and we will try to remove as much information as possible.  However, as we generally keep information related to past transactions for our records, we will not be able to completely remove your information.

 

CHANGES TO PRIVACY POLICY

We may change our policy at any time by posting a new version of it on our website.  We encourage you to check our website regularly for information about revisions to this Privacy Policy.  In the event that we change our Privacy Policy, such changes will affect all of the information we collect after any such change.  If you object to the change to our Privacy Policy, then you must contact us in writing regarding your objection.
