When a user visits Zippia.com, we collect general information. This information is not personal or private (although we may treat it as such) and cannot be used to identify anyone. We collect data such as your location, IP address, and we might collect information about how you’re using Zippia.com by recording what pages you visit or how long you spend on each page. We may also collect data on what time you visited Zippia.com, what browser you used, or whether you visited our desktop site or our mobile site. Again, this information is not personal information, and cannot be used to identify you. We collect this data for our own company records—we don’t sell or distribute any of this information to anyone unaffiliated with Zippia, Inc., we simply use it to improve the user experience and/or personalize your visits. For example, we might note that your IP address implies that you live in New York City, so we’ll make sure that your list of initial job postings are from companies in New York City. Often, this data is collected via cookies, as well as through other means.

Any information you provide to Zippia as a member will be kept secure and will only be provided to trusted partners (i.e. potential employers, etc.) or other parties that the user has authorized.

What does Zippia do with this information?
Zippia has relatively few intended uses for this information. Our main goal is to provide the best user experience possible to all users. Data collection is a big part of this, as it gives us insight into things like what features users are spending more time on or where our users are located. To this end, we use a lot of collected anonymous data to improve our products and services. We also use data in a good-faith effort to help our users achieve their professional goals—that is, we may send emails to the user (if so requested) or otherwise keep the user updated about new job postings or new Zippia services. The user may opt out of these emails at any time. However, we also reserve the right to use any gathered information in a reasonable manner if we have a good-faith belief that doing so will improve the quality of our service, our business operations, website security, or the user experience. Zippia may provide information to Zippia affiliates in order to perform services required of our business. Zippia may provide information to third parties at our discretion if such disclosure is appropriate and reasonable to fulfill a user’s request or directive. Additionally, Zippia reserves the right to disclose user information as required by law (i.e. if necessary to comply with a court order, or subpoena, or if Zippia, Inc. is acquired by another company, etc.).
Here at Zippia, we realize that your privacy is very important and is not to be taken lightly. We secure all of our collected data with industry-standard (or better) security, and will make every reasonable effort to protect your information. However, Zippia will not be held liable for any loss or damages in the event of an unforeseen circumstance such as a security breach or hack. By using Zippia.com the user agrees to do so at their own risk, and this includes sharing personal data. In the event of a security breach, Zippia will make reasonable efforts to protect personal information as much as possible. If you wish to be notified in writing of a security breach, please inform us using the contact information below.
