Administrative

Zindigo reserves the right to use personal information for administrative purposes.  When an individual completes and digitally signs the Ambassador Agreement, the individual consents to the collection, use and disclosure of their personal information for the purposes set out above, including the calculation and processing of commissions, unless Zindigo is otherwise notified. When your Ambassador application is accepted by Zindigo, the personal information disclosed on the application, will be used solely within the context of our business relationship with you. Upon the termination of the relationship between Zindigo and the Ambassador, Zindigo will only keep the Ambassador’s personal information for lawful purposes.

External Use

Our goal is to provide you with wonderful service and make your Zindigo experience as easy as possible. To this end, we share nonpublic personal information and non-personally identifiable information with third parties that perform services on our behalf for your benefit. These third parties must abide by this Policy to keep nonpublic information confidential and use it only for its intended purpose.  Zindigo and its operational service partners collect and use your personal information to process product orders and deliver the products requested. It is possible that Zindigo may also use personal information to inform you of other products or services available from Zindigo and its affiliates. Zindigo may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered. 

 

Zindigo does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.  Zindigo may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your personal information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.  

Zindigo may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Zindigo or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Zindigo, including its Websites; or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Zindigo or the public.  

Personal information collected on this site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Zindigo or its affiliates, subsidiaries or partners or agents maintain facilities, and by using this site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

We reserve the right to transfer personal information in the event Zindigo acquires or merges with or is acquired by another company. Any information disclosed as a result of one of these events will be subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time.

 Zindigo does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.  

 

Security of your Personal Information

Zindigo is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access and located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number) over the Internet, we protect it through THAWTE SERVER CA under the certificate of zindigo.com.
