The Information Zippr Collects
Zippr may obtain the following types of information from or concerning you or your mobile phone device, which may include information that can be used to identify you as specified below (“Personally Identifying Information”):

In order to provide the Zippr Service, Zippr will periodically access your address book or contact list on your mobile phone to locate the mobile phone numbers of other Zippr users (“in-network” numbers), or otherwise categorize other mobile phone numbers as “out-network” numbers, which are stored as one-way irreversibly hashed values.

Zippr uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser.

The Way Zippr Uses Information
Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites
We are not fans of advertising. Zippr is currently ad-free and we hope to keep it that way forever. We have no intention to introduce advertisement into the product, but if we ever do, will update this section.
Our Commitment To Data Security
Zippr uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Zippr and you do so at your own risk. Using unsecured wifi or other unprotected networks to submit messages through the Zippr Service is never recommended. Once we receive your transmission of information, Zippr makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If Zippr learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Zippr may post a notice on the Zippr Site or through the Zippr Service if a security breach occurs.
Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Zippr does not knowingly collect or maintain Personally Identifiable Information or non-personally-identifiable information on the Zippr Site or Zippr Service from persons under 16 years of age, and no part of the Zippr Service is directed to or intended to be used by persons under 16. If you are under 16 years of age, then please do not use the Zippr Service or access the Zippr Site at any time or in any manner. If Zippr learns that Personally Identifiable Information of persons under 16 years of age has been collected on the Zippr Site or Zippr Service, then Zippr may deactivate the account and/or make the status submissions inaccessible. And always, think of the children!
Special Note to International Users
In the Event of Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy
In the event that Zippr is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the (hopefully) unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.
