Privacy Policy
This Privacy Policy describes the privacy practices of Greenbax Inc. d/b/a ZipHQ ("ZipHQ", “Zip”,
“Evergreen,” "we", “us” or "our") and how we handle personal information that we collect
through our digital properties that link to this Privacy Policy, including our website ZipHQ.com
(collectively, the “Service”), as well as through social media, our marketing activities, and other
activities described in this Privacy Policy.
Zip provides a pioneering platform that offers one place for employees to initiate a purchase or
vendor request. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information that we process on behalf of our
enterprise customers while providing the Zip platform to them. Our use of such information is
governed by our agreements with those enterprise customers. If you have concerns regarding
personal information that we process on behalf of an enterprise customer, for example if you are
an employee of such an enterprise customer, please direct your concerns to that enterprise
customer.
Our websites, products, and services are primarily designed for enterprise organizations and their
representatives. We do not offer products or services for use by individuals for their personal,
family, or household purposes. Accordingly, we treat all personal information we collect as
pertaining to individuals in their capacities as enterprise organization representatives and not their
individual capacities.
Zip may provide additional or supplemental privacy policies for specific products or services
that we offer at the time we collect personal information or as otherwise notified to you.

Device data - such as your computer’s or mobile device’s operating system type and

within them.
Cookies and similar technologies. Like many online services, we may use the following
technologies:
Cookies, which are text files that websites store on a visitors device to uniquely identify the
visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser for the purpose of
helping you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, enabling
functionality, helping us understand user activity and patterns, and facilitating analytics
and online advertising.
Local storage technologies, like HTML5 and Flash, that provide cookie equivalent
functionality but can store larger amounts of data, including on your device outside of your
browser in connection with specific applications.
Web beacons, also known as pixel tags or clear GIFs, which are used to demonstrate that a
webpage or email address was accessed or opened, or that certain content was viewed or
clicked.
Data about others. Users of the Service may have the opportunity to refer other contacts to us and
share their contact information with us. Please do not refer someone to us or share their contact
information with us unless you have their permission to do so.
How we use your personal information
We may use your personal information for the following purposes or as otherwise described
at the time of collection.
Where the processing is necessary to administer our relationship with you,
including where based on our contract with you or to take steps at your request
prior to entering into a contract. For example, we may use your personal
information to:
create and administer orders for you;
establish and maintain your user profile on the Service;
enable security features of the Service, such as by sending you security codes
via email or SMS, and remembering devices from which you have previously
logged in;
communicate with you about the Service, including by sending
announcements, updates, security alerts, and support and administrative
messages;
provide support for the Service, and respond to your requests, questions,
and feedback; and
facilitate you visiting our offices or attending events.
Where the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests and where our
interests are not outweighed by your data protection rights. For example, we may
use your personal information to:
further our research and development, including to analyze and improve the
Service and our business;
collect and use your personal information for marketing and advertising
purposes, including through service providers or third parties and to
understand your needs and interests, and personalize your experience with
the Service and our communications;
send you Zip-related or other direct marketing communications as
permitted by law;
undertake mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations, disposals, or other
business transactions as permitted/required in accordance with local law;
and
protect our, your or others’ rights, privacy, safety or property (including by
making and defending legal claims).
Where necessary to comply with a legal obligation. For example, we may use your
personal information to:
comply with applicable laws, lawful requests, and legal processes, such as to
respond to subpoenas or requests from government authorities;
audit our internal processes for compliance with legal and contractual
requirements and internal policies;
enforce the terms and conditions that govern the Service; and
prevent, identify, investigate and deter fraudulent, harmful, unauthorized,
unethical, or illegal activity, including cyberattacks and identity theft.
With your consent. In some cases, we may specifically ask for your consent to
collect, use or share your personal information, such as when required by law.
Anonymized, aggregated, or de-identified data
Anonymization is a data processing technique that modifies personal information so that it
cannot be associated with a specific individual. Except for this section, none of the other
provisions of this Privacy Policy apply to anonymized, aggregated (i.e., information about
our customers that we combine so that it no longer identifies or references an individual
customer) or de-identified data. We may use this anonymized, aggregated, or de-identified
data and share it with third parties for our lawful business purposes, including to analyze
and improve the Service and promote our business.
How we share your personal information
We may share your personal information with the following parties and as otherwise
described in this Privacy Policy or at the time of collection.
Affiliates. Our corporate parent, subsidiaries, and affiliates, for purposes consistent
with this Privacy Policy.
Service providers. Third parties that provide services on our behalf or help us operate
the Service or our business (such as hosting, information technology, customer
support, email delivery, marketing, and website analytics).
Payment processors. Any payment card information you use to make a purchase from
us, including on the Service, is collected and processed directly by our payment
processors and as such may be subject to that payment processor’s privacy policy.
Third parties designated by you. We may share your personal information with third
parties where you have instructed us or provided your consent to do so.
Business and marketing partners. Third parties with whom we collaborate on joint
activities (such as co-sponsors of contests and promotions), with whom we have
entered into joint marketing relationships or other joint ventures, or who we think may
offer you products or services that you may enjoy.
Professional advisors. Professional advisors, such as lawyers, auditors, bankers, and
insurers, where necessary in the course of the professional services that they render to
us.
Authorities and others. Law enforcement, government authorities, and private parties,
as we believe in good faith to be necessary or appropriate for the legal compliance and
other purposes described above.
Business transferees. Acquirers and other relevant participants in business
transactions (or negotiations and diligence for such transactions) involving a corporate
divestiture, merger, consolidation, acquisition, reorganization, sale or other disposition
of all or any portion of the business or assets of, or equity interests in, Zip or our
affiliates (including, in connection with a bankruptcy or similar proceedings).
Other users and the public. Your profile and other user-generated content (except for
messages) may be visible to other users of the Service and the public. For example,
other users of the Service or the public may have access to your information if you
choose to make your profile or other personal information available to them through
the Service, such as when you provide comments, reviews, survey responses, or share
other content. This information can be seen, collected, and used by others, including
being cached, copied, screen captured, or stored elsewhere by others (e.g., search
engines), and we are not responsible for any such use of information.
Your rights
You may have a right to access and to obtain a copy of your personal information as processed by
Zip. If you believe that any personal information we hold about you is incorrect or incomplete, you
may also request the correction of it (for example by logging into the Service if you have registered
for an account with us).
You may also have the right to:
object to the processing of your personal information;
request the deletion of your personal information;
request a restriction on the processing of your personal information; and/or
withdraw your consent where Zip obtained your consent to process personal information
(without this withdrawal affecting the lawfulness of any processing that took place prior to
the withdrawal).
Zip will honor such requests for access, correction, deletion or restriction and/or any withdrawal or
objection as required under the applicable data protection laws and regulations, and we will not
discriminate against you for exercising your legal rights. However, please note that such rights are
not absolute: they do not always apply, and exemptions may be applicable. Zip will usually, in
response to any such request, ask you to verify your identity and place of residence and/or provide
information that helps us to better understand your request. If we do not comply with your request,
we will explain why.
To exercise the above rights with Zip, you may contact us as set forth below. If you are not satisfied
with how we process your personal information, please let us know and we will investigate your
concern.
If you are not satisfied with our response, you have the right to make a complaint to the data
protection authority in the jurisdiction where you live or work, or in the place where you think an
issue in relation to your data has arisen. For European residents, the contact details of data
protection authorities in the European Economic Area can be found
here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/article-29/structure/data-protection-
authorities/index_en.htm.
As highlighted above, if you are personnel of an enterprise customer that uses Zip products or
otherwise have had your personal information collected via Zip products by or on behalf of our
customers, please note this Privacy Policy does not apply to such personal information. If you have
questions regarding your rights in relation to personal information that we process on behalf of an
enterprise customer, for example if you are an employee of such an enterprise customer, please
direct your questions to that enterprise customer.
