We recommend that you exercise caution before you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable content, information, or data to other users, on publically accessible or displayable parts of the Services, or through third-party links on third-party websites or platforms.

Collection and use of information
We may collect and store personally identifiable information (“personal information”), such as your email and physical address, name, telephone number and credit card information. When you provide personal information through the Website, the information may be sent to servers located in the United States and other countries around the world. We do not and will not disclose, send spam, sell or rent your personal information and Account information to third parties, except as needed for participating in projects and programs (e.g. disclosure to Project Sponsors), tour authorized service providers, Social Media and Social Networking platforms which you use to sign in to the Services, completing payment and billing transactions through third party payment processing vendors (if applicable), or as required by court order or other law.
Social media login
You may sign in through any other Social Media or Social Networking platform that is integrated with the Services, the availability of such function subject to change at any time without notice to you. We may collect and store your Social Media or Social Network login and account information, for your convenience, and as per the privacy and data settings you have in place for each Social Media or Social Network account you use to access the Services. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the details of your Social Media or Social Network account, including your password. You agree not to use the account, username, or password of another user at any time, or to disclose your password to any third party. You agree to notify Us immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your Social Media or Social Network account to access the Services.
If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to have your Social Media or Social Network account linked to your Zooppa Account, you may de-link the account in the “preferences” section in your Zooppa Account settings.
You may be required to create a Zooppa Account (“Account”) in order to proceed securely with participation in certain of Our Services reserved for Members only. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the details of your Account, including your password. You agree not to use the Account, username, or password of another Member at any time, or to disclose your password to any third party outside of those who have agency authority through you. You agree to notify Us immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your Account to access the Services. You are solely responsible for any and all use of your Account. We may periodically obtain both personal and non-personal information about you from business partners, contractors and other third parties and add it to our information regarding your Account that we have collected. We may collect and store personal information that you provide to us about third parties, such as their names, addresses and email addresses. For example, if you provide information about others that appear in your content submissions, we may collect and store that information.
By interacting with the Services, the server automatically collects certain types of technical information. We use this information to maintain the quality, function and operation of the Services. This information may include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and access platform. IP addresses indicate the location of a user’s computers or mobile device on a network connected to the Internet. Providing services to you may result in the logging of IP addresses for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. We do not log IP addresses to track your session, nor do we link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable.
Your use of the Services may result in the assignment and storage of session cookies to recognize your access privileges. A cookie is a text file that is placed on the hard disk of your computer or mobile device by a server. Session cookies expire when you end your session and close your browser interface. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer or mobile device. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
Information collected by third-parties
We may allow third parties, including any of Our authorized service providers, advertising companies and ad networks, to display advertisements on our website and other Services. These companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to collect information about users who view or interact with their advertisements, in order to show users advertising content that is more relevant to their interests. This practice is called interest-based advertising. Certain of Our authorized service providers may provide to Us information that links tracking data with certain personal information, such as our online instant chat service. This is done solely to provide you with customer and technical support and provide accurate information based on your inquiries.
Zooppa adheres to the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Interest-Based Advertising. To opt out of interest-based advertising from companies that participate in the DAA’s opt-out website, please visit www.aboutads.info/choices.
Movement of data between your device and Our servers is entirely wrapped within an encrypted data link. Your data is as secure as the Account you use to enjoy the Services. To prevent unauthorized access, safeguard data accuracy, and maintain the appropriate use of information, We have put in place appropriate physical, technical, and administrative procedures to protect the personal information data you submit. While Members may publicly share links to the content submissions they upload to their Account, you understand that by doing so, you may cause certain of your information to become known or knowable, outside of the privacy guards and systems Zooppa has in place on its own platforms. We make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, and are not responsible for third-party networks. We are not immune to evolving technology and security threats, but we maintain the highest reasonably possible measures of security to prevent third-party interferences from illegally obtaining or tampering with your personal information.
We encourage you to help us by also taking precautions to protect your personal data when you use the Services. Change your Account password often using a combination of letters, numbers, and characters, and make sure you use a secure connection.
Privacy of minors
We do not promote or offer the Services for use by anyone under the age of 14 (“minors”). Zooppa does not knowingly solicit or collect personal information from minors, and we will not knowingly link to any third party website or platform that solicits or collects personal information from minors. If you believe that a minor has disclosed personal information to Us or that We have linked to such a third-party website or platform, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
