WHAT INFORMATION DOES ZIPLR COLLECT AND HOW IS IT USED?

The information we collect is primarily used to provide the services, to process and complete any transactions, to respond to inquiries, to personalize and improve the Services, to monitor and analyse usage and trends of the services, to provide you with related, relevant information, and for any other purpose for which the information was collected. In connection with certain aspects of the services, we may request, collect and/or display some information about you. We collect the following types of information from our users.

User Data

When you create an Account, we will collect personal information from you, such as your name and email address. We use your contact information to send you information about our Services. Ziplr reserves the right to contact you when we believe it is necessary, such as for administrative and account management purposes.

Url Data

One feature of our Services is to create shortened uniform resource locators (URLs) of websites ("Ziplr links - Ziplinks"). Ziplr collects and stores both the original URL and the shortened URL and, if you are logged in to your Account, we will associate that information with your Account. Ziplr also collects and stores the time and date on which you shortened the original URL and when you share the Ziplr Link, information on the channels through which the Ziplr Link was shared.

Statistics and Analytics

Ziplr collects information about accesses (such as clicks) of every Ziplr Link created through the Services. This information includes, but is not limited to: (i) the IP address and physical location of the devices accessing the Ziplr Link; (ii) the referring websites or services; (iii) the time and date of each access; and (iv) information about sharing of the Ziplr Link on Third Party Services such as Twitter and Facebook. These metrics and analytics are used by Ziplr and its partners to improve their websites and services by, for example, providing value-added features.

User Content

Some features of the Services allow you to provide content to the Services, such as written descriptions of URLs, comments. For example, using the tag feature, Ziplr users can curate and "keep together" a set of links, and can do analysis of these tags. All content submitted by you to the Services may be retained by Ziplr, even after you terminate your account, and may continue to be shared by third parties, as described in this Privacy Policy.

Information Collected From Third Party Services

Some features of the Services allow you to share your content and Ziplr Links through your accounts with other companies such as Facebook and Twitter. We may collect information about how you are using the Services to interact with those connected Third Party Services. Note that Third Party Services may have the ability to restrict the information that is provided to us based on your privacy settings of that account.

Information Collected Automatically

  • Generally, the Services automatically collect usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to the Site. Ziplr may use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, but not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us and third parties authorized by us to figure out how often individuals use parts of the Services so that we can analyse and improve them.
  • We will collect information about your general location (such as your city and state) when you visit the Site (which is derived from your IP address) and we may use various technologies to determine your location (if you enable this feature), when you access and use the Services through a mobile device.
