Privacy Policy – For Customers

Last Updated: 4/4/2018

1. ABOUT ZINGLE & THE CONTENT OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY

Welcome to www.zingle.me provided by Zingle, Inc., doing business as Zingle (“Zingle”).

Zingle provides this Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) to inform you about how Zingle collects, uses and discloses information it obtains through the online services and properties owned or controlled by Zingle, including Zingle’s proprietary enterprise text-messaging platform (collectively, the “Service”). All other terms not defined herein will have the meanings set forth in Zingle's Terms of Use (the “Terms of Use). If you are a Zingle customer who has entered the SaaS Agreement with Zingle, then you are a “Customer.” If you are an individual with whom a Customer communicates using the Service, then you are a “Consumer.”

This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into the Terms of Use. After reviewing the Privacy Policy, if you have any further questions, please contact Zingle at info@zingleme.com.

2. A GENERAL NOTE ON INTERNET TECHNOLOGIES AND PRIVACY

Before you review this Privacy Policy, we recommend that you become familiar with the following concepts and terms so that you can best understand how Zingle uses your data to provide the Service.

Ad Tags: Ad Tags are pieces of code that allow the delivery of online advertisements in the dedicated ad spaces on websites and in online applications. Advertisers’ Ad Tags may transmit certain anonymous information about the web site, section of the site and size of the ad.

Cookies: Cookies are small text files that web servers typically send to users’ computer when they visit a website. Cookies can be read or edited when the user loads a website or advertisement from the domain that wrote the cookie in the first place. Cookies are used by companies to collect and send information about a user’s website visit – for example, number of visits, average time spent, pages viewed, navigation history through the website, and other statistics. This information can be used to improve a user’s online experience by saving passwords, or allowing companies to track and improve website loading times, for instance. Cookies can also be used to track a user’s browsing or online purchasing habits and to target advertisements to specific users. Cookies cannot be used to access any other data on a user’s hard drive, to personally identify them, or to act like malware or a virus. Users who prefer not to accept cookies can set their Internet browser to notify them when they receive a cookie or to prevent cookies from being placed on their hard drive. You can read more about cookies at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/cookies/.

Web Beacons & Pixels: A web beacon consists of a small string of code that represents a graphic image request on a web page, a page in an online application, or in an email. A graphic image can be associated with the web beacon, but is not required. When an image is present, usually the image is designed to blend into the background of the web page, application, or email in which it appears. Often a beacon will be placed by an online data collecting company without an image, so it is invisible to the user, and in the smallest discrete space possible on the screen. This is a “pixel” and is essentially an invisible web beacon. Pixels and web beacons can be used for site traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, advertising auditing and reporting, personalization, and other uses. They do this typically by writing or editing cookies on each user’s computer. Therefore, like cookies, they cannot be used to key log, copy personal files from your computer, or replicate like a virus. Most pixels and web beacons, including those used by Zingle, collect only anonymous data.
