Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy 

Last updated January 31, 2020 

The goal of this policy is to explain what information we collect when you use ZestFinance Inc.’s  (“Zest’s”) sites, services, products, and content (“Services”). It also has information about how we  store, use, transfer, and delete that information. By using or accessing our Services you  acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies described in this Policy. This Policy does  not apply to third party sites, including those linked to from our Services. 

Information we collect 

In order to make our Services work and give you the best possible experience, we collect  information from your interactions with our Services. This can include information you share with  us, like your name or email address, which we may use to track your account or communicate  with you. If can also include information we collect and store based on what Zest pages you  access, like your Internet Protocol address and referral information. 

We use this information to:

  1. provide and personalize Zest services
  2. fight spam and other abuse
  3. debug
  4. generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use Zest Services,  which we may share with third-parties such as vendors and researchers. 

Email from Zest 

We may send you administrative emails about account or service changes, or new policies. You  can’t opt out of this type of email. But, you can opt out of non-administrative emails such as  product announcements. 

We’ll never email you to ask for your password or other account information. If you receive such  an email, please send it to us so we can investigate. 

Disclosure of your information 

We may share your personal information with third parties in some circumstances, including: (1)  with your consent; (2) to a vendor or partner who meets our data protection standards; (3) when  we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process; (4) when we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to a  person. 

If we are going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you notice so  you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited from  doing so by law or believe doing so may endanger others. We will object to requests for  information about users of our services that we believe are improper or overbroad. 

If we merge with another company such that your information will become subject to a different  privacy policy, we’ll notify you before the transfer, so you can opt out of any such new policy by  deleting your account during the notice period. 

Cookies 

We use cookies and similar technologies such as pixels and local storage to recognize you when  you return to our services. We may use them in various ways, for example to remember your  preferences (such as default language), evaluate email effectiveness, and personalize content  and other information. 

Our sites do not interpret or respond to Do Not Track browser signals because there are not yet  uniform industry standards for how browsers communicate that signal. Even so, as described  more fully throughout this policy, we limit our use and collection of your personal information. 

Some third-party services that we use, such as Google Analytics, may place their own cookies in  your browser. This policy covers use of cookies by Zest only and not the use of cookies by third  parties. 

Social Media 

You may also find additional information on our products and services through our social media  sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Please keep in mind that any information you share is  visible to all participants on these social media sites and you should never post any sensitive  personal information (such as account number or social security number). 

Please carefully review the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy on these social media sites as they  may be different than our own policies. 

Advertising

We may partner with third parties to deliver and monitor advertisements on our websites, and we  may monitor advertisement engagement in order to improve visitor experience. Zest's advertising  partners may use cookies, Web beacons, or other monitoring technologies to compile statistics  about website traffic. These third parties are subject to their own privacy policies. 

Data Storage 

Zest uses third-party service providers, such as Amazon, for hardware, software, networking,  storage, and related technology we need to run Zest Services. 

Data security 

We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no  data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee security. You use the  Zest Services at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure  your information. 

Children 

Zest doesn’t knowingly market products or services to children online under the age of thirteen,  and children under the age of thirteen may not use our sites or services.

Zest may periodically update this policy. We’ll notify you about significant changes to it.
