Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy provides our policies and procedures for collecting, using, and disclosing your information. Customers can access the iZiBackup service (the “Service”) through our website or programs installed on Devices. A “Device” is any computer used to gain access to the iZiBackup Service, including without limitation a desktop, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, or other consumer electronic device. This Privacy Policy regulates your access to the iZiBackup Service, no matter of how you access it, and by using our Services you consent to the collection, transfer, processing, storage, disclosure and other uses described in this Privacy Policy. All of the different forms of data, content, and information described below are together referred to as “information”.


1. The Information We Collect And Store

We may gather and store the following information when operating the iZiBackup Service:

Information You Provide: When you sign up for an account, we gather some personal information, such as your name, phone number, email address and home and business postal addresses. You may also ask us to use your social networking information if you give us access to your account on social network connection services. You may also provide us with your contacts email addresses when sharing folders or files with them.

Files: We collect and store the files you upload, download, or access with the iZiBackup Service (“Files”).

Log Data: When you use the Service, we instantly record information from your Device, its software, and your activity using the Services. This may include your IP address, browser type, the web page visited before you came to our website, information you search for on our website, locale preferences, identification numbers associated with your Devices, your mobile carrier, date and time stamps associated with transactions, system configuration information, physical system information, metadata concerning your Files, and other interactions with the Service.

Cookies: We also use “cookies” to collect information and improve our Services. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your Device. We may use “persistent cookies” to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Service. We may use “session ID cookies” to enable specific features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Service. You can instruct your browser, by modifying its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all aspects of the Service.


2. How We Use Personal Information

Personal Information: In the course of using the Service, we may gather personal information that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information is or may be used: (i) to provide and improve our Service, (ii) to administer your use of the Service, (iii) to better understand your needs and interests, (iv) to customize and improve your experience, and (v) to provide or offer software updates and product announcements.

Geo-Location Information: Some Devices allow apps to access real-time location-based information (for example, GPS). Our mobile apps do not collect such information as of the date this policy went into effect, but may do so in the future with your permission to improve our Services. Some photos you place in iZiBackup may include recorded location information. We may use this information to improve your experience. Also, some of the information we gather from a Device, for example IP address, can occasionally be used to estimate a Device’s location.

Analytics: We also collect some information (ourselves or using third party services) using logging and cookies, which can sometimes be correlated with Personal Information. We use this information for the above purposes and to monitor and analyze use of the Service, for the Service’s technical administration, to increase our Service’s functionality and user-friendliness, and to verify users have the authorization needed for the Service to process their requests. As of the date this policy went into effect


3. Information Sharing and Disclosure

Your Use: We will display your Personal Information in your profile page and elsewhere on the Service in accordance to the preferences you set in your account. Any information you choose to provide should indicate how much you want others to know about you. Please consider carefully what details you disclose in your profile page and your desired level of anonymity. You can review and modify your profile information at any time. We may also share or disclose your information with your permission, for example if you use a third party application to access your account (see below). Through certain features of the Service, you may also have the ability to make some of your information public. Public information may be broadly and quickly disseminated.

Service Providers, Business Partners and Others: We may use certain trusted third party companies and individuals to help us provide, evaluate, and enhance the Service (including but not limited to data storage, maintenance services, database management, web analytics, payment processing, and improvement of the Service’s features). These third parties may have access to your information only for purposes of performing these tasks on our behalf and under obligations similar to those in this Privacy Policy.

Third-Party Applications: We may share your information with a third party application with your consent, for example when you choose to access our Services through such an application. We are not responsible for what those parties do with your information, so you should make sure you trust the application and that it has a privacy policy acceptable to you.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement Requests; Protection of iZiBackup’s Rights: We may disclose to parties outside iZiBackup files stored in your iZiBackup and information about you that we collect when we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with a law, regulation or compulsory legal request; (b) protect the safety of any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of iZiBackup or its users; or (d) to protect iZiBackup’s property rights.

Non-private or Non-Personal Information: We may disclose your non-private, aggregated, or otherwise non-personal information, such as usage statistics of our Service.


4. Changing or Deleting Your Information

If you are a registered user, you may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information provided in your registration or account profile by changing your profile. If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may update or delete it by making the change on your profile. In some cases we may retain copies of your information if required by law.


5. Data Retention

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We may retain and use your information as required to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Consistent with these requirements, we will try to remove your information quickly upon request. Please note, however, that there might be latency in deleting information from our servers and backed-up versions might exist after deletion.


6. iZiBackup Community

Our Service may offer publicly available community services such as blogs, forums, and wikis. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. Your posts may remain even after you terminate your account.
