Automatically Collected Information:

Some non-personal information is automatically received and sometimes collected from you when you use our Services. We receive and collect the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our Site; and the Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to our Site. We use this information to monitor the usage of our Site. Also, when we send emails to you, we may be able to identify information about your email address, such as whether you can read graphic-rich HTML emails. The information we automatically capture provides us with the ability to enhance our customers’ search and shopping experiences and to determine aggregate information about our user base and usage patterns

  • Information Collected via Cookies.We use cookies to recognize your device and enhance the browsing and shopping experience with the Zapple Service. “Cookies” are small files or records that we place on your computer’s hard drive to collect information about your activities while using the Zapple Service. Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”) is also used on this website. Google Analytics uses cookies allowing an analysis of your use of the website.
  • Information Collected Using Pixel Tags or Clear GIFs.To help us understand the effectiveness of our email marketing efforts, we may use “message format” and “message open” sensing technologies. Both technologies require the use of pixel tags or clear GIFs (also called web beacons). The “message format” sensing technology allows us to recognize whether you have enabled your email program to receive HTML emails; if so, this information is then associated with your email address so that subsequent messages can be sent to you in HTML format. The “message open” sensing technology allows us to recognize whether you have opened our email message. We can only detect this if you have enabled your email program to receive HTML emails.

Information We Obtain from Third-Party Sources:

Our vendors: contact information and demographics that you provide to or through our vendors, such as through our email and text message campaigns.

HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS PROTECTED

  • Encryption Technology – The Personal Customer Information you provide – including your credit card information – to establish an account with us and to make purchases from us is secured using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology. We use this SSL technology to prevent such information from being intercepted and read as it is transmitted over the Internet. The encrypted data goes to a secure site where your information is stored on restricted-access computers located at restricted-access sites.
  • Password Security – To further secure your Personal Customer Information (“PCI”), we require you to create a customer password when you establish an account with us. We encourage you to use a password that is not easily guessed (i.e., don’t use your name or street name). Keep your password secret; do not share it with anyone. If you forget your password, you can contact Zapple Customer Service and they will send you your password. It will be sent to the email address under which your Zapple account is assigned. If you want to change your password or other account information, simply log in to your account and click on “Update Profile”.
  • Remember to Sign Out – To further prevent unauthorized access to your account, remember that, after you sign in, you should sign out once you have (i) completed your transaction, (ii) completed managing your account, or (iii) decided to step away from your computer. Anyone who accesses your computer after you have signed in but before you have signed out can access your account. This is especially true if you have Express Checkout enabled on your account.
  • Alternative Customer Purchasing Options – If you do not feel comfortable sending your credit card information to us over the Internet, you still can shop with us. We welcome you to call us through your local number and a Customer Service Representative will assist you with your order.
  • PCI Compliance – We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard nonpublic personal information and any other information, to ensure all customers that their privacy is a major part of our commitment to provide the finest service possible. We are committed to protecting consumer credit card data in compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Our alignment with this standard is reflected in the people, technologies and processes we employ. We conduct regular vulnerability scans and penetration tests in accordance with the PCI DSS requirements for our business model. We attest to our PCI compliance quarterly. In addition, our PCI compliance is attested to annually by a PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA).
