1. Types of Data We Collect
We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data from you when you visit the Enterprise Site, or send us information or communications, and/or when you submit content to our Enterprise Site. “Personal Data” means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, location, telephone number, email address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. “Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data; Anonymous Data does not permit the identification of individual persons.
1.1 Data You Provide to Us
We receive and store any information you enter on our Enterprise Site or otherwise provide to us.
We collect Personal Data from you, such as your username, first and last name, mailing address, email address, phone number, location, when you access the Enterprise Site and submit such information to the Enterprise Site.
We collect any Personal Data contained in information or content that you submit to the Enterprise Site, such as name or email.
We collect information that you submit to the Enterprise Site response to surveys or submissions of requests for references or resources.
If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we may collect your name and email address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail or that you submit to us, in order to send you a reply.
1.2 Data Collected Through Technology
Our servers (which may be hosted by a secure third party service provider) collect information from you when you visit or use the Enterprise Site, such as browser type and version, operating system, platform, Internet Protocol (IP) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and a date/time stamp for your visit.
We use analytics technology to collect information about your use of our mobile applications and the Enterprise Site, such as the time and date of your use, the duration of your use of various screens, and the features that you accessed. We use this data to assess features most preferred or most difficult to use, to improve the usability experience for users.
We may use clear gifs (otherwise known as web bugs or web beacons) to gather information about your visit to the Enterprise Site, such as what you click on and pages and information you viewed. Additionally, be aware that partners may also use their own clear gifs and we do not control use of these by partners and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are placed on a user’s hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages.
2. Public Areas; Sharing
We may display your name and public information (“Public Content” as defined in the Zipongo Terms and Conditions), such as your comments, blog posts, when you post Public Content to or use forums, blogs, and other user community features of the Enterprise Site (collectively, “Public Areas“). A subset of your public content is available to the general public and other users on the Enterprise Site. If you associate your name with your Public Content, the people to whom you have revealed your name will be able to personally identify your activities on our Enterprise Site. You may also choose to share on the Enterprise Site or a Third Party Service, via comments, your location, and data, (collectively, “Shared Content”). If you use Public Areas, post Public Content, share Shared Content, or send emails or other messages to other persons, you should be aware that they can read, collect or use any Personal Data contained therein. We are not responsible for the Personal Data you choose to submit in the Public Areas, in your Public Content, Shared Content, or that you send to others.
3. Third Party Services
We allow you to access third party services (“Third Party Services“), such as, but not limited to, Google, to share content with those services. Some Third Party Services may provide us information to help improve and personalize your experience on the Enterprise Site, or provide Shared Content. It is your choice to login to Third Party Services, such as Facebook; you are not required to do so. Once logged into a Third Party Service, you can control your privacy settings on the Service to block the sharing to Third Party Services of your content and the importation of friend and contact information from Third Party Services. You can also adjust your privacy settings with the Third Party Service. We also may offer a feature allowing you to invite friends to join the Enterprise Site by providing their contact information or by importing their contact information from your address book on a Third Party Service, such as, but not limited to, Gmail from Google, or your address book on your mobile device. You agree that we may store and use your friends’ contact information to invite them to join and connect with you on the Enterprise Site. Your friends may choose to ignore your friend requests or the opportunity to access Zipongo.
4. Use of Your Data
In general, Personal Data you submit or authorize a third party to submit (such as an employer) to us is used to provide you with a customized experience, aid us in serving you better, and to respond to your requests.

8. A Note about Children
The Enterprise Site is not currently directed to children under the age of 13. We respect the privacy of parents and children and are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). We do not knowingly collect or solicit any information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for the Enterprise Site. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us immediately.
We have commercially reasonable security measures in place to help protect against loss, misuse and alteration of your Personal Data in our possession, including securely storing any Personal Data collected as encrypted data. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while Zipongo uses reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Data, Zipongo cannot guarantee its absolute security.
