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

If you submit Personally Identifiable Information to us through the Zippr Site, or Zippr Service, then we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Zippr Site and Zippr Service. In particular, your mobile phone number is essential to your use of the Zippr Service and will be retained. Any billing information that may be collected from you will be deleted thirty (30) days after the termination of your account with Zippr. Any Personally Identifiable Information or status content that you voluntarily disclose on the Zippr Service becomes publicly available and may be collected and used by other users of the Zippr Service (unless such user is blocked by you). Your name (as it is saved in other user’s mobile phone address book or contact list) may be displayed to other users when you update your status messages through the Zippr Service and other users may contact you through the Zippr Service. We do not use your mobile phone number or other Personally Identifiable Information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may, however, use your mobile phone number (or email address, if provided) without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Zippr Site or Zippr Service changes or for customer service purposes). We may use both your Personally Identifiable Information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Zippr Site and Zippr Service and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends. Hopefully we improve the Zippr Site and Service and don’t make it suck worse. We may use cookies and log file information to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you use the Zippr Service or Zippr Site; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor individual and aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, pages viewed, etc.; and (d) track your entries, submissions, views and such.

Your Choices

You may, of course, decline to submit Personally Identifiable Information through the Zippr Site or the Zippr Service, in which case Zippr may not be able to provide certain services to you.

To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as SMS authentication in certain cases) to verify your identity before registering your mobile phone number and granting you access to the Zippr Service. Please contact Zippr via email to support at or available web forms with any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy, your personal information, your consent, or your opt-in or opt-out choices.

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.

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.
