Information Zong Collects and Uses
Zong does not collect any information that identifies you personally other than your mobile phone number. For purchasers who use the Zong Services, Zong collects data related to your purchase, including your mobile phone number, telecommunications carrier information, and data related to you purchase of goods, such as the purchase amount, the name of the seller and the application and/or website location from which the goods are made available (“Transaction Data”). For website visitors, Zong may collect information regarding IP addresses, domain servers, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, clickstream data, type of computer or mobile phone, type of web browser, one or more cookies that identify your browser, and telecommunications carrier information (“Traffic Data”). Zong may aggregate Transaction Data and/or Traffic Data for the purposes of making the Services available to you.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Zong uses Transaction Data to process purchase transactions initiated by you and to communicate with you as part of the transaction process. Zong shares Transaction Data with your mobile carrier and the seller of the goods you’ve purchased as necessary to process the transaction and for post-purchase support. Zong uses Traffic Data to improve the Services.
Zong may use and disclose other Transaction Data and any Traffic Data on an aggregated basis.
Zong may share Transaction Data with third parties when legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, to verify or enforce compliance with user agreements and applicable laws, to protect against fraud, to detect and prevent security or technical issues, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Zong Services, or website, or to protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of Zong, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.
Zong may share Transaction Data with a successor entity or in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, sale of assets or other corporate reorganization provided that use of Transaction Data is in compliance with this policy.
Zong may share Transaction Data with a third party if you have consented to receive information from that third party through use of the Zong Services. Such third parties will handle, store, retain and access such user information in accordance with the terms and conditions of their agreements with you, if any, as well as their own privacy policies. It is your responsibility to carefully review such agreements and privacy policies. You acknowledge that Zong shall have no liability to you for sharing of such information to such third parties and Zong disclaims any and all liability relating thereto.
We process Traffic Data to provide the Services and as part of the provision of Services, we may process other personal information on behalf of and according to the instructions of a third party, such as Sellers from whom you purchase goods, but only when you have provided your express consent to allow us to do so.
If Zong desires to use Transaction Data for any purposes other than those described in this policy, we will offer you the opportunity to opt out of such use for those other purposes.
Security and Data Integrity
When processing Transaction Data, Zong uses a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) that encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the Transaction Data under our control. Transaction Data we collect is stored in a secure manner that is accessible only by authorized Zong personnel and is only disclosed under the provisions of this policy.
Children's Personal Information

In addition, in the event that a user identifies himself or herself as a child under the age of 13 within the Zong website, Zong will not collect, store or use any personally-identifiable information of such user.
