BisZinc Privacy Policy

Effective February 6, 2019

When you use our services, you’re trusting us with your information. We understand this is a big responsibility and work hard to protect your information and put you in control.

This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what information we collect, why we collect it, and how you can update, manage, export, and delete your information.

Information BisZinc collects

We want you to understand the types of information we collect as you use our services

We collect information to provide better services to all our users — from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like how you manage your task and project. The information BisZinc collects, and how that information is used, depends on how you use our services and how you manage your privacy controls.

When you’re not signed in to a BisZinc Account, we store the information we collect with unique identifiers tied to the browser, application, or device you’re using. This helps us do things like maintain your language preferences across browsing sessions.

When you’re signed in, we also collect information that we store with your BisZinc Account, which we treat as personal information.

Things you create or provide to us

When you create a BisZinc Account, you provide us with personal information that includes your name and a password. You can also choose to add payment information to your account. Even if you aren’t signed in to a BisZinc Account, you might choose to provide us with information — like an email address to receive updates about our services.

We also collect the content you create, upload, or receive from others when using our services. This includes things like knowledge record, project assignment, qualification vetting you create and receive, attachment you upload or create, and comments you make on project.

Information we collect as you use our services

Your apps, browsers & devices

We collect information about the apps, browsers, and devices you use to access BisZinc services, which helps us provide features like automatic product updates and optimizing system configuration to optimize response time.

The information we collect includes unique identifiers, browser type and settings, device type and settings, operating system, and application version number. We also collect information about the interaction of your apps, browsers, and devices with our services, including IP address, the date, time, and referrer URL of your request.

We collect this information when a BisZinc service on your device contacts our servers — for example, when you install our app or when a service checks for automatic updates.

Your activity

We collect information about your activity in our services, which we use to do things like recommend an optimized schedule. The activity information we collect may include:

  • Terms you search for
  • Job you have performed
  • Length of time which you spend on a job
  • Your preference in project priority
  • Your preference of team priority
  • Your working hour
  • Record of your completed task

  • In some circumstances, BisZinc also collects information about you from publicly accessible sources. We may also collect information about you from trusted partners, including marketing partners who provide us with information about potential customers of our business services, and security partners who provide us with information to protect against abuse.

    We use various technologies to collect and store information, including cookies, storage, such as browser web storage or application data caches, databases, and server logs.

    Why BisZinc collects data

    We use data to build better services

    We use the information we collect from all our services for the following purposes:

    Provide our services

    We use your information to deliver our services, like tracking the progress of your work in order to maintain the project status and your delivery record.

    Maintain & improve our services

    We also use your information to ensure our services are working as intended, such as tracking outages or troubleshooting issues that you report to us. And we use your information to make improvements to our services.

    Develop new services

    We use the information we collect in existing services to help us develop new ones.

    Provide personalized services, including content and ads

    We use the information we collect to customize our services for you, including providing recommendations, personalized content. For example, Security Checkup provides security tips adapted to how you use BisZinc products.

    Measure performance

    We use data for analytics and measurement to understand how our services are used. For example, we analyze data about your visits to our sites to do things like optimize product design. And we also use data about the ads you interact with to help advertisers understand the performance of their ad campaigns. We use a variety of tools to do this, including Google Analytics. When you visit sites that use Google Analytics, BisZinc and a Google Analytics customer may link information about your activity from that site with activity from other sites that use our ad services.

    Communicate with you

    We use information we collect, like your email address, to interact with you directly. For example, we may send you a notification if we detect suspicious activity, like an attempt to sign in to your BisZinc Account from an unusual location. Or we may let you know about upcoming changes or improvements to our services. And if you contact BisZinc, we’ll keep a record of your request in order to help solve any issues you might be facing.

    Protect BisZinc, our users, and the public

    We use information to help improve the safety and reliability of our services. This includes detecting, preventing, and responding to fraud, abuse, security risks, and technical issues that could harm BisZinc, our users, or the public.

    We use different technologies to process your information for these purposes. We use automated systems that analyze your content to provide you with things like customized search results, or other features tailored to how you use our services. And we analyze your content to help us detect abuse such as misuse, malware, and illegal content. We also use algorithms to recognize patterns in data.

    We may combine the information we collect among our services and across your devices for the purposes described above. Depending on your account settings, your activity on other sites and apps may be associated with your personal information in order to improve BisZinc’s services and the ads delivered by BisZinc.

    If other users already have your email address or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible BisZinc Account information, such as your name and photo. This helps people identify an update coming from you, for example.

    We’ll ask for your consent before using your information for a purpose that isn’t covered in this Privacy Policy.

    Your privacy controls

    You have choices regarding the information we collect and how it's used

    The available option can be found under our setting page.

    Your personal information

    Manage your contact information, such as your name and email address.

    Exporting, removing & deleting your information

    You can export a copy of content in your BisZinc Account if you want to back it up or use it with a service outside of BisZinc.

    You can also request to remove content from BisZinc based on applicable law.

    To delete your information, you can:

  • Delete your content from BisZinc Service
  • Delete your entire BisZinc Account
  • There are other ways to control the information BisZinc collects whether or not you’re signed in to a BisZinc Account, including:

  • Browser settings: For example, you can configure your browser to indicate when BisZinc has set a cookie in your browser. You can also configure your browser to block all cookies from a specific domain or all domains. But remember that our services rely on cookies to function properly, for things like remembering your language preferences.
  • Device-level settings: Your device may have controls that determine what information we collect.
  • Sharing your information

    If you are using our Services on behalf of a business, that business accepts these terms. It will hold harmless and indemnify BisZinc and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from any claim, suit or action arising from or related to the use of the Services or violation of these terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’ fees.

    When you share your information

    Our services let you share information with other people, and you have control over how you share. Remember, when you share information publicly, your content may become accessible through search engines, including BisZinc Search.

    When you’re signed in and interact with some BisZinc services, like leaving comments on a YouTube video or reviewing a song in Play, your name and photo appear next to your activity. We may also display this information in ads depending on your Shared endorsements setting.

    When BisZinc shares your information

    We do not share your personal information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside of BisZinc except in the following cases:

    With your consent

    We’ll share personal information outside of BisZinc when we have your consent.

    With domain administrators

    If you’re a student or work for an organization that uses BisZinc services, your administrator who manage your account will have access to your BisZinc Account. They may be able to:

  • Access and retain information stored in your account, like your email
  • View statistics regarding your account, like how many apps you install
  • Change your account password
  • Suspend or terminate your account access
  • Receive your account information in order to satisfy applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request
  • Restrict your ability to delete or edit your information or your privacy settings
  • For external processing

    We provide personal information to our affiliates and other trusted businesses or persons to process it for us, based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. For example, we use service providers to help us with customer support.

    For legal reasons

    We will share personal information outside of BisZinc if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:

  • Meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request.
  • Enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
  • Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues.
  • Protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of BisZinc, our users, or the public as required or permitted by law.
  • We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners — like publishers, advertisers, developers, or rights holders. We also allow specific partners to collect information from your browser or device for advertising and measurement purposes using their own cookies or similar technologies.

    If BisZinc is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets, we’ll continue to ensure the confidentiality of your personal information and give affected users notice before personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

    Keeping your information secure

    We build security into our services to protect your information

    All BisZinc products are built with security features that continuously protect your information. The insights we gain from maintaining our services help us detect and automatically block security threats from ever reaching you. And if we do detect something risky that we think you should know about, we’ll notify you and help guide you through steps to stay better protected.

    We work hard to protect you and BisZinc from unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold, including:

  • We use encryption to keep your data private while in transit
  • We review our information collection, storage, and processing practices, including physical security measures, to prevent unauthorized access to our systems
  • We restrict access to personal information to BisZinc employees, contractors, and agents who need that information in order to process it. Anyone with this access is subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
  • Compliance & cooperation with regulators

    We regularly review this Privacy Policy and make sure that we process your information in ways that comply with it.

    Data transfers

    We maintain servers around the world may be processed on servers located outside of the country where you live. Data protection laws vary among countries, with some providing more protection than others. Regardless of where your information is processed, we apply the same protections described in this policy.

    When we receive formal written complaints, we respond by contacting the person who made the complaint. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of your data that we cannot resolve with you directly.

    When this policy applies

    This Privacy Policy applies to all of the services offered by BisZinc. This Privacy Policy doesn’t apply to services that have separate privacy policies that do not incorporate this Privacy Policy.

    This Privacy Policy doesn’t apply to:

  • The information practices of other companies and organizations that advertise our services
  • Services offered by other companies or individuals, including products or sites that may include BisZinc services, be displayed to you in search results, or be linked from our services
  • Changes to this policy

    We change this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent. We always indicate the date the last changes were published and we offer access to archived versions for your review. If changes are significant, we’ll provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of Privacy Policy changes).
