What Does Zeenk Do?
Zeenk is a software company headquartered in Boston. Zeenk enables rapidly growing consumer brands to turbo charge their profit, with actionable insights on growth and profit levers. Zeenk provides hundreds of brands with packaged market, sales, and marketing insights with easy data exploration in a powerful, easy-to-configure SAAS platform engineered specifically to scale e-commerce financial performance.
Information Collection and Use
We don’t collect data that people commonly understand to be personal, such as names, addresses, etc. However the concept of “personal data” in recent privacy law is a broad one.
If you are a Zeenk customer, Zeenk’ tracking solutions may gather first-party data on individuals. In the case of website pixels, a combination of unique user IDs, cookies, and IP addresses are used for attribution purposes. Additionally, device specific user-agent and IP address data is carried by all network requests and collected along with the data listed above. The information we receive is generated from interactions with our customers’ web and app properties, and enables us to best provide our customers with growth insights.
Customer accounts with Zeenk additionally hold user submitted information such as username and password in order to authenticate users and to contact users with relevant information having to do with their Zeenk accounts.
If you visit our website or receive our email newsletter, we may collect your contact information such as name, email address, mailing address, and phone number. We may use this information for internal purposes to send you a requested product, respond to your service requests, questions or concerns, administer your account, send you newsletters or catalogues in accordance with your marketing and communication preferences, and/or to improve our web site and marketing efforts.
As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes information that may be regarded as personal information in certain countries, such as internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), search terms, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a performance marketer about our software, we will ask you for that person’s name and email address. We will automatically send that person a one-time email inviting him/her to visit the website. Zeenk stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program. Please, make sure that you only provide us with these contact details when you have that person’s permission to do so.
- Third-party providers: We may share your information with third parties who provide services on our behalf to help with our business activities. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us. These services may include sending marketing communications or providing cloud computing infrastructure for example.
- To any other third party with your prior consent to do so.
We may also disclose your personal information:
- in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements or as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process
- when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request,
- if Zeenk is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or use of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.

We employ a software technology called Web Beacons (a.k.a. clear gifs) along with cookies. Web beacons are tiny graphics or scripts embedded in web pages, which are used to track information about the behavior of individual visitors, such as which products they browse over time. Web beacons cannot generally be disabled, but they rely on cookies to identify visitors.
We use session cookies for functions such as server load balancing and denial-of-service attack protection, and persistent cookies for login, analytics, and marketing.

Brands use our platform to understand the activities of their business across a variety of web and social properties.

Analytical cookies allow us to identify visitors and measure how they interact with our customers’ sites and advertisements. This helps us to improve the effectiveness of their business by delivering insights into how customers respond to their marketing and sales activities. Operational cookies contain no personal information and are support operations of the system such as pixel forwarding.

If any of our customers request Zeenk remove data that the customer controls upon demand of a 3rd party, we will respond to their request within 30 days.

LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING PERSONAL INFORMATION (EEA VISITORS ONLY)
If you are a member from the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.
However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you.
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).
Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.
If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the contact details provided under the “Contacting us” heading below.
International data transfers
Your personal information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country.
Our Standard Contractual Clauses can be provided on request. We have implemented similar appropriate safeguards with our third party service providers and partners and further details can be provided upon request.
Data retention and security
Zeenk will retain both the information we collect directly and personal data we process through our customers for as long as needed to provide services to our customers. We will retain and use this personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
When we have no longer have legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
We take the security of information that we collect very seriously and therefore implement appropriate technical and organizational measures in order to protect it. When you log into our Ad Automation Software, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at email@example.com.
Our Web site offers a publicly accessible blog. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. To request removal of your personal information from our blog, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We display personal testimonials of satisfied customers on our site in addition to other endorsements. With your consent we may post your testimonial along with your name. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us at email@example.com.
