Targeted Advertising

Zesty.ai partners with other companies (collectively, “External Partners”) for advertising purposes. External Partners use cookies, beacons, tags, tracking pixels and similar tracking technologies to collect certain information automatically, including IP address and device ID. With this information and, in some cases, information about your visits to other websites and services, External Partners provide advertisements on third-party sites about goods and services that may be of interest to you, often referred to as behaviorally-targeted or re-targeted advertisements. External Partners may also track performance and use data relating to the ads as well as how you use our Site and third party websites.

What does this mean? When you visit our Site, External Partners may drop cookies (or similar tracking technologies) and capture and collect information, so that they can track your activity on the Site – unless you have blocked cookies. This information may be combined with other information from other sources, and used to deliver targeted advertising on other websites.

Analytics (including in-Site analytics) partners
Marketing and advertising partners
Customer service providers
Note that in some cases, these service providers collect information directly from you through the use of cookies and similar technologies, as explained in the Cookie Notice.

Legal Obligations

We may share your information with any person or entity where we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or otherwise appropriate to: (a) comply with the law or in response to a valid subpoena, court order, government request, or other valid legal process; (b) produce relevant documents or information in connection with litigation, arbitration, mediation, adjudication, government or internal investigations, or other legal or administrative proceedings; (c) protect the interests, rights, safety, or property of Zesty.ai or others; or (d) enforce the user agreement terms or other contractual obligations.

Business Transfer

As we continue to grow, we may purchase websites, applications, subsidiaries, other businesses or business units. Alternatively, we may sell businesses or business units, merge with other entities and/or sell assets or stock, in some cases as part of a reorganization or liquidation in bankruptcy, as well as raise capital through financings. In connection with, in contemplating, or as part of, these transactions, we may transfer your personal information to another entity upon a merger, consolidation, financing or other corporate reorganization in which Zesty.ai participates, or to a purchaser or acquirer of all or a portion of Zesty.ai’s assets, bankruptcy sale included.

Consent

We may share your information with any person or entity when we have your consent in order to provide the Services.

Aggregated and De-identified Information

We may use and share non-personal information about you or your use of the Site and Services, including any de-identified and aggregated data with third parties without limitation.

Opting-Out of Marketing Communications from Us

You may opt-out at any time of receiving direct marketing emails and other promotional email communications. You may opt-out by choosing the “Unsubscribe” option available as a link in every promotional email. You may also do so by contacting us at hello@zesty.ai.

We will gladly comply with all requests to opt-out of or unsubscribe from promotional communications, but reserve the maximum amount of time allowed by law to process such requests. You cannot opt-out of certain transactional emails or communications, which are necessary to conclude a transaction or provide the Services.

Children’s Information

The Site and Services are not directed toward persons under 18 years of age. We do not knowingly market to or collect any personal information from children under the age of 18. If you are under 18, you are not permitted to submit any personal information to us or on the Site.

If you are a parent or guardian, and believe that we have the personal information of your minor child in our database, please contact us immediately at hello@zesty.ai to request that we remove such information from our records.

Security

We have implemented technical and organizational measures designed to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of your personal information. Despite our efforts, however, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We appreciate your help in safeguarding the integrity of your own and others’ privacy, and encourage you to let us know immediately if you suspect that any personal information you shared with us is being used contrary to this Privacy Notice.

Data Retention

We will retain the personal information that we collect where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so, including to provide you with our Services, or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it. If this is not immediately possible because your personal information has been stored in backup archives, we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

International Transfers

We are located in the United States, and the personal information that we collect is stored on servers located in the United States. This means that your personal information will be collected, processed and stored in the United States, which may have data protection laws that are different from (and sometimes less protective than) the laws of your country or region.

By sending us personal information, you agree and consent to the processing of your personal information in the United States, which may not offer an equivalent level of protection to that required in other countries or regions (particularly the European Economic Area), and to the processing of that information by us on servers located in the United States, as described in this Privacy Notice.

With respect to transfers to third-party service providers, we take reasonable steps to ensure appropriate safeguards.

Notice to Nevada Consumers:
We do not sell your personal information within the scope of, and according to the defined meaning of a “sale” under, NRS 603A.
