Privacy

Last updated: February 21st, 2019

This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you use the Zappmeet app and visit www.zappmeet.com. When you use our services, you’ll share some information with us. So we want to be upfront about the information we collect, how we use it, whom we share it with, and the controls we give you to access, update, and delete your information. Of course, if you have questions about anything in our Privacy Policy, just contact us.

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you register with Zappmeet you generally provide, your name, email address, age, username, password, a photo and other registration information. When you create a Zappmeet you generally provide, place, time, date, a photo, and a list of users to invite. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.” Other data is generated implicitly by your use of Zappmeet, e.g. log data. We use this information for internal analytical purposes to improve the product for you. Furthermore we employ other companies to perform tasks on our behalf and may need to share this information with them to provide services to you. We do not sell your data to third parties.

Zappmeet may collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of mobile device you are using and information on its operating system, your unique mobile device ID, the IP address of your mobile device and information on the way you use Zappmeet.

With your permission, Zappmeet may collect information on your geo-location with GPS

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

– “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
– “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
– “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.
When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking about Device Information.

COOKIES

When you use Zappmeet, we may send one or more cookies (a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters) that uniquely identifies your browser in order to improve our service.

We may use both session and persistent cookies; a session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser, and a persistent cookie may be used by your browser on subsequent visits. Persistent cookies can be deleted by following directions on your phone.

DO NOT TRACK

Please note that we do not alter our Site’s data collection and use practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.

LOG DATA

Zappmeet records certain requests and transactions in log files. This log data is used for troubleshooting, statistics, analytics, quality assurance, and to monitor system security and can be analyzed to that end. Zappmeet can publish anonymous statistics under the condition that no personally identifiable information can be derived from such statistics.

Zappmeet also uses Google Analytics, Amplitude Analytics and Google Firebase Analytics (for iOS and Android apps) to compile usage statistics. These services are provided by Google, Inc. Their privacy policies can be found here and here. Zappmeet anonymizes IP addresses before they are sent to Google Analytics.

Zappmeet works with Crashlytics, Inc to report any bug affecting our iOS and Android Apps. Crashlytics’ software is built into our Android App. If either app crashes during normal use, the app will send certain information about the incident to Crashlytics as applicable. This information consists of the device type, OS version and certain hardware information about your mobile device, and the time of the crash, the state of the application at the time of the crash, and stack traces. The information does not include your IP address or any other information that could be used to identify you or your mobile device individually, and does not include any other information from your mobile device.

SECURITY

We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. Please be aware that, although we endeavour to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.

DATA TRANSFER

Zappmeet servers are based in the United States of America; however, this is subject to change at Zappmeets sole discretion. Zappmeet may therefore transfer, store and process your Device information (as defined in the Privacy Policy) to other jurisdictions. However, Zappmeet will not move your data to countries that EU has not listed as GDPR secure. You can read more about what countries are defined as GDPR secure here.

We share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information, as described above. We also use Google Analytics and Amplitude Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site, you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. To opt-out of Amplitude Analytics please contact us at hey@zappmeet.com.

Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.

IN THE EVENT OF A MERGER OR SALE

In the event that Zappmeet is acquired by or merged with a third party, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our users.

DATA RETENTION

We will retain Device Information for as long as you use Zappmeet and for a reasonable time thereafter. Servers logs (i.e. what user did what) are saved for 30 days. User data (e.g. username and phone number) are saved for as long as you hold an account with us. Please note that some or all of the Device Information is required in order for Zappmeet to function properly.

If you’d like us to delete any of your Device Information please contact us at hey@zappmeet.com

YOUR RIGHTS

If you are a European resident, you have the right to access personal information we hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us.
Additionally, if you are a European resident we note that we are processing your information in order to fulfill contracts we might have with you, or otherwise to pursue our legitimate business interests listed above. Additionally, please note that your information will be transferred outside of Europe, specifically to the United States.
You have the right to object to our use of your information. With many types of data, we’ve provided you with the ability to simply delete it if you don’t want us processing it anymore. For other types of data, we’ve given you the ability to stop the use of your data by disabling the feature altogether. You can do these things in the app. If there are other types of information you don’t agree with us processing, you can contact us.

USERS IN THE EUROPEAN UNION

If you are a European resident, you should know that Zappmeet is the controller of your personal information. Here is some additional information we would like to bring to your attention:

Bases for using your information

Your country only allows us to use your personal information when certain conditions apply. These conditions are called “legal bases” and, at Zappmeet, we typically rely on one of four:

Contract. One reason we might use your information is because you’ve entered into an agreement with us. For example, when you have accepted our location services, we need to use some of your information to make sure we display our map feature to the right people at the right place and time. Legitimate interest. Another reason we might use your information is because we have—or a third party has—a legitimate interest in doing so. For example, we need to use your information to provide and improve our services, including protecting your account, delivering your Zappmeets, providing customer support, and helping you find friends and content we think you’ll like. Consent. In some cases we’ll ask for consent to use your information for specific purposes. If we do, we’ll make sure you can revoke your consent in our services or through your device permissions. Even if we’re not relying on consent to use your information, we may ask you for permission to access data like contacts and location. Legal obligation. We may be required to use your personal information to comply with the law, like when we respond to valid legal process or need to take action to protect our users. CHILDREN

Our services are not intended for—and we don’t direct them to—anyone under 13. And that’s why we do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 13. In addition, we may limit how we collect, use, and store some of the information of EU users between 13 and 16. In some cases, this means we will be unable to provide certain functionality to these users. If we need to rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your information and your country requires consent from a parent, we may require your parent’s consent before we collect and use that information.

REVISIONS TO THE PRIVACY POLICY

We may update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.But when we do, we’ll let you know one way or another. Sometimes, we’ll let you know by revising the date at the top of the Privacy Policy that’s available on our website and mobile application. Other times, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our websites’ homepages or providing you with an in-app notification).

CONTACT US

For more information about our privacy practices, if you have questions, or if you would like to make a complaint, please contact us by email at hey@zappmeet.com.

If you’re based in the EU, you can always file a complaint with the supervisory authority in your Member State. For example, if you’re based in the UK you can file a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
