There are many different ways you can use our services – to search for and share information, to communicate with other people or to create new content. When you share information with us, for example by creating a MyZipMail Account, we can make those services even better – to show you more relevant search results and ads, to help you connect with people or to make sharing with others quicker and easier. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.
- What information we collect and why we collect it.
- How we use that information.
- The choices we offer, including how to access and update information.
We’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you’re not familiar with terms like cookies, IP addresses, pixel tags and browsers, then read about these key terms first. Your privacy matters to MyZipMail so whether you are new to MyZipMail or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices – and if you have any questions consult this page.

We collect information in two ways:

If you want to take full advantage of the features we offer, we might also obtain images or photographs of items you post.
- Information we get from your use of our services. We may collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like when you access Ad's or Zip Mails, how often you view these items, or how many times you purchase a service and details about that service such as the dollar amount, date of service, and which areas you advertised in.
We may collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number). MyZipMail may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your MyZipMail account.
When you use our services or view content provided by MyZipMail, we may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This may include details of how you used our service, such as your search queries,Internet protocol address, device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL. cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your MyZipMail Account.
When you use a location-enabled MyZipMail service, we may collect and process information about your actual location, like GPS signals sent by a mobile device. We may also use various technologies to determine location, such as sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.
Unique application numbers:
Certain services include a unique application number. This number and information about your installation (for example, the operating system type and application version number) may be sent to MyZipMail when you install or uninstall that service or when that service periodically contacts our servers, such as for automatic updates.
We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
Cookies and anonymous identifiers
How we use information we collect
We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect MyZipMail and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant search results and ads.
We may use the name you provide for your MyZipMail Profile across all of the services we offer that require a MyZipMail Account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your MyZipMail Account so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible MyZipMail Profile information, such as your name and photo.
When you contact MyZipMail, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements. We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. For example, by saving your language preferences, we’ll be able to have our services appear in the language you prefer. When showing you tailored ads, we will not associate a cookie or anonymous identifier with sensitive categories, such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation or health.
We may combine personal information from one service with information, including personal information, from other MyZipMail services – for example to make it easier to share things with people you know. We will not combine DoubleClick cookie information with personally identifiable information unless we have your opt-in consent.
Transparency and choice
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:
- View and edit your preferences about the Zip-Ad's shown to you on MyZipMail, such as which categories might interest you.
- View and edit your preferences as to which types of ZipMails you see
You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.
Information you share
Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines, including MyZipMail. We do not guarantee that we will be able to remove your information once it is posted,
Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request. We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems). Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.

- We encrypt many of our services using SSL.
