Zango generally processes and stores Personal Information on its servers in Australia. In some cases, Zango may also rely on data processors, service providers, data hosting and servers located overseas. Consequently, You should be aware that Your Personal Information may be disclosed to overseas recipients. In addition, Zango may process some Personal Information to provide its own Services, and/or Services on behalf of and according to the instructions of a third party, such as Zango’s advertising partners, which may also include disclosure to overseas recipients.

Your use of the Services and Your provision of any Personal Information or location information to Zango is subject to the terms of this Policy, Zango’s Terms and Conditions and any other terms under which You have engaged with Zango.

Zango will collect the Personal Information directly from You at the time You ask Zango to provide You with the Services, or if You access the Site.
Your use of the Site will determine the amount and type of information that Zango will collect about You.

(a) Your server (IP) address and top level domain name;
(b) the date and time of Your website visit;
(c) the country that Your server is located;

(e) the type of browser You used;
(f) the previous Site You visited; and
(g) the Site You visited next.
Some of this information (such as browser type and version, operating system, sites visited) will not be Personal Information because it will not reveal Your identity. This information allows Zango to analyse User behaviour in an anonymous form, and is typically used to improve the quality and Services of Zango’s website and to prevent fraud, maintain the integrity of Zango’s IT systems, and to enhance the security of Zango’s network and IT systems.
Some of the Services may feature or include various location-based components. Location information includes, but is not limited to, any information Zango derive in order to identify a User’s geographic position. This information may be collected directly from a User, or from a User’s wireless carrier or from certain third party service providers. A User’s location information, however, is only displayed and shared in accordance with his or her established privacy settings.
Zango will not use information obtained from Your browsing activities to send You any unsolicited information.
The only Personal Information which Zango collects about You when You use the Site is what You tell Zango about yourself: for example, by completing an online form such as an application form, or by asking for a disclosure document for Zango’s products, or by sending Zango an email.
Whenever Zango collects “sensitive information” (such as certain financial information) from You, then such information will be treated in accordance with the relevant rules and requirements of the Privacy Act.
Zango will take reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Information Zango collects, uses or discloses is accurate, complete, up-to-date and stored in a secure environment protected from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Zango will only retain Your Personal Information for as long as it is reasonably necessary to fulfil the purpose/s for which it was collected or as required for a reporting, legal or accounting purpose.
The Personal Information You provide to Zango will enable Zango to provide Zango’s Services to You.

For example, Zango may use Your Personal Information to keep You informed about features of its products and Services or to conduct analysis in order to provide better customer Service. As noted above, if You provide information that may be deemed sensitive information for the purpose of Privacy Act, Zango will manage and treat that information in accordance with the APPs.
If You do not provide some or all of the information requested, Your experience of Zango’s Service may be impaired. Zango may have to discontinue its business or sales relationship with You, or Zango may not be able to provide You with particular Services or access to certain features on Zango’s Site.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive European data protection law that provides greater data rights for individuals and increases compliance responsibilities for organizations. The GDPR grants EU residents greater control over their Personal Data (as defined in Article 4 GDPR and in general terms meaning data which, in isolation or in combination with other information, enables You to be identified directly or indirectly) and gives national regulators new powers to impose significant fines on organizations that breach this law.
Where the GDPR applies with regard to any Personal Data Zango collects, then this section applies to that Personal Data. For the purpose of GDPR, Zango is the ‘controller’.
If You are a resident in the European Economic Area (EEA), You have these rights with respect to Your Personal Data:
You can request to exercise any of these rights in relation to Your Personal Data by sending the request to the Privacy Officer at the contact details provided at the end of this Policy.

When You purchase goods or Services from Zango, any credit card information or other information (if any) You give Zango to purchase the goods or Services is used to process the payment. The original request/application/enrolment form may be stored securely in the Zango office for audit/taxation requirements and to assist individuals who request duplicate information for their own records. These documents are then destroyed. Zango’s database only records that You attended an activity or purchased a Service and how much You paid for it. Zango does not store Your credit card details on Zango’s database.
Zango takes appropriate measures to protect unauthorised access to, or unauthorised alteration, disclosure or destruction of, the Personal Information and location information transmitted or disclosed to Zango. These include internal reviews of Zango’s data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorised access to systems where User data is collected, stored, and/or maintained.
Zango requires that when You log in to the Site or utilise Services that require a log in, a secure connection between Your computer and Zango’s server be established. Zango cannot warrant or ensure the security of any Personal Information and location information that it receives on behalf of Users or any other information that a User transmits, shares or discloses to Zango. For improved security, Zango recommends that Users use the https:// prefix when using its Services. Zango may also use technology such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to increase the encryption of connections between Zango and You. Despite the possibility that Zango is using technology such as SSL encryption to safeguard the confidentiality of Personal Information as far as possible, You should be aware that no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free.
Zango cannot guarantee that information will not be accessed, shared, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by a breach of any of Zango’s physical, technical, or other safeguards. Zango recommends that You take special care in deciding what information is shared, transmitted or disclosed to Zango.
Zango processes Your Personal Information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy or any applicable terms that You agree with Zango.
