How Zip Uses Cookies

Our services use both session and persistent cookies to: enable you to sign in and use our services, store your preferences and settings within them; analyze how they perform, personalize your experience with them, provide interest-based advertising, facilitate social media interaction, allow us to administer the services, track users’ movements around our websites, and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole and for other lawful purposes. We may also use other tracking technologies for these purposes, such as web pixels that track browsing activity, social media widgets that facilitate interaction with social media platforms and unique device identifiers. In some cases, these cookies and other tracking technologies are used by third parties.

What about other tracking technologies?

As noted above, cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to our websites. We may use other similar technologies from time to time, such as web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our website or opened an email that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies rely on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will often impair their functioning.

Do Not Track and Global Privacy Control

Do Not Track: Some Internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals to the online services that you visit. Unfortunately, these features are not yet uniform and there is no common standard adopted by industry groups, technology companies, or regulators. Therefore,  Zip does not monitor or respond to “Do Not Track” browser requests. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.  

Global Privacy Control: Zip honours the Global Privacy Control on browsers and/or browser extensions that support such a signal. To find out more about the Global Privacy Control visit: https://globalprivacycontrol.org/.
