Log data

Our servers automatically record certain information about how users use our services (this information is called “log data“). Log data includes, for example, information such as a user’s IP address, browser type, operating system, the website that a user visited before accessing our services, the pages or features of our services that a user visited and the time spent on those pages or features, search terms, the links clicked on by a user on our services, comments and other communications left through our services, information about third-party products and services that we allow users to access through their accounts, and other statistical information. We use this information to administer our services, and we analyze this information (and may contract with third parties to analyze this information) to improve and expand the services by increasing their range of services and functionality and customizing them to meet the needs and preferences of our users. We may combine the log data with other information we have collected about you. This is done in order to improve our services or to enhance marketing, analysis or functionality. We may use an individual’s IP address to help prevent spam, malware and identity theft. We also use the IP address to collect aggregate, non-directly identifiable information about your use of our services. We may combine this automatically collected log data with other information we have collected about you. This is done to improve the services we provide to you or to improve marketing, analysis or site functionality.

Location data

At no time during the download or use of our app or services will we collect, access or track location-based information from you.

Survey data

If you are a user and survey participant, we collect your survey responses and share them with the zesavi client (defined below) (including its administrators); we do so at the direction of the zesavi client, who is the data controller with respect to any information you provide in a survey. The “zesavi customer” is the zesavi corporate customer or client who is responsible for conducting the survey. Unless we notify you otherwise prior to participation in a particular survey via the Services, we will provide your survey responses to the relevant zesavi customer without directly identifying you. Please note, however, that the zesavi client may be able to determine your identity from the information you provide in your survey responses (for example, but without limitation, if you provide personal information or non-directly identifiable personal information that can identify you in your comments or other written survey responses). In certain cases, we may link a respondent’s personally identifiable information to your survey responses and share your personally identifiable information with the zesavi client along with your responses; we will notify you of this before you participate in a survey. If you do not want your personal data to be linked to your survey answers and passed on to the zesavi customer, you should not participate in the respective survey in such cases. The zesavi customer is entitled to use and disclose your survey responses at its own discretion in accordance with the terms of its respective agreements with us. We may also disclose survey responses as described in the “Information Shared with Third Parties” section.

Do Not Track

Do Not Track (DNT) is a concept promoted by regulatory authorities. It called on the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism to allow Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities on websites. Industry associations, Internet browsers, technology companies, and government agencies are working together to develop a DNT technology standard. Although progress has been made in this direction, no standard has yet been established. Without this common industry standard for DNT, users cannot know whether a company is following the DNT signal received via a browser header. Because there is no common standard, zesavi currently does not respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT mechanisms, see http://allaboutdnt.com/.

WHICH DATA DO WE PASS ON TO THIRD PARTIES?

We do not share any personal information that we have collected from you, whether you are a user or an administrator. Exceptions to this are the data described below:

Data shared with our service providers

We may contract with third parties to help us manage and deliver the services, such as cloud services providers for hosting the zesavi service and technical support. These third parties are given access to your personal information solely for the purpose of providing services on our behalf.

Non-Personal Information Shared with Third Parties

We may share aggregated information and non-directly identifiable information with third parties, including other users, to increase the effectiveness of our services, as well as for industry research and analysis, demographic profiling, benchmarking and similar purposes. For example, we may share aggregated, non-directly identifiable user or company information with other zesavi customers to enable them to compare key figures about their business (e.g., survey response rates) with companies of similar size and/or industry.

Data shared with zesavi customers

As described above, in some cases we will link survey participants’ personal information to their survey responses and share this personal information with the respective zesavi customer along with their responses; we will notify the survey participants accordingly before they respond to the survey.

Data shared with third parties at the request of the zesavi customer

At the request of the respective zesavi customer, we share survey responses and the personal data of survey participants assigned to these responses with third parties, provided that we have received prior permission from the survey participants to share their data. Transfers to subsequent third parties are subject to the service agreements with our customers.

Information disclosed in connection with business transactions

The information we collect from our users, including personal information, is considered business assets. In the event that we cease trading or file for bankruptcy or are acquired in a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or sale of assets, your personal information may be disclosed to or transferred to the third party acquirer as part of the transaction. You will be notified by e-mail and/or by a clearly visible notice on our website of any change in ownership, the purposes for which your personal information will be used and the options available to you regarding your personal information. We may also disclose your personal information to other third parties with your prior consent.

For our protection and the protection of other information disclosed

In certain situations, zesavi may be forced to disclose personal data due to legitimate requests by public authorities, inter alia, to meet requirements of national security or law enforcement authorities. We work with government and law enforcement officials or private parties to enforce and comply with laws. We may disclose information about you to government and law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary and appropriate: (i) to respond to claims, legal process (including subpoenas); (ii) to protect our property, rights and safety, and the property, rights and safety of a third party or the public generally; and (iii) to prevent activities that we deem illegal, unethical or legally actionable.

SECURITY OF YOUR DATA

We take the security of your personal data very seriously. We follow generally accepted standards and take reasonable steps to protect the information we collect from or about you (including your personal information) from unauthorized access, use or disclosure, both during transmission and after receipt. For example, we use a secure server for the Site and Services. Any personal information you provide through the Services is transmitted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and we use similar secure technology on the Site. However, please remember that no method of transmitting data over the Internet or storing data is completely secure. For this reason, we cannot guarantee absolute security for any data. We keep your information as long as your account is active or as necessary to provide services to you, to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes and to enforce our agreements.

You should be aware that zesavi customers can track and verify your Internet usage and/or email when you use certain zesavi customer resources (e.g., in your office or when using laptops or devices provided or issued by your organization). We have no control over these activities and are not responsible for such activities on the part of the zesavi customer.

Our services may contain links to other websites and services. Any information that you provide on a website or service or for a third-party website or service is provided directly to the owner of the website or service and is subject to the owner’s privacy policy. Our Privacy Policy does not apply to such websites or services and we are not responsible for the content, privacy practices or security measures or policies of such websites or services. To protect your privacy, we encourage you to carefully read the privacy policies of other websites and services you access.

Zesavi UG remains liable in accordance with the principles of the data protection shield if third parties that we assign to process such personal data on our behalf do so in a way that is not compatible with the principles of the data protection shield, unless we prove that we are not responsible for the circumstance that causes the damage.
