We may customize our marketing and promotional messages to you based on your use of our service, the information that you provide to us or which we otherwise obtain about you, and algorithms designed to help us anticipate your potential needs, based on your information and the information of others who use ZOFI services. ZOFI believes that such programs provide valuable information and benefits to our current and potential users. ZOFI strictly shares such information with third parties in line with the use disclosed herein and does not take liability for any possible misuse by a third party outside the identified use.However, if you live in the European Community or another jurisdiction where such use of your data for marketing and promotional purposes requires your permission, ZOFI will not use your data for these purposes unless you "opt in" to such uses.
ZOFI's leading security experts and practices help ensure that your personal data is secure. All such information is stored on servers with state-of-the-art data protection technology, and is accessible only to ZOFI employees who, for business purposes, need to access it. We use 128-bit encryption and encode your debit card or related information as soon as it is entered in the ZOFI app, a process that overwrites your details so that they are unreadable by unauthorized parties.
No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Although ZOFI uses strong methods to protect the data that you provide to us, and we regularly test our information protection practices and technology, ZOFI cannot absolutely guarantee its security. We will, however, notify you of any breach or other compromise that affects your data, promptly and in compliance with applicable law.
