By choosing to make it public, we mean, choosing to display certain information on your website. Information you choose to make public
a. Choosing to make your information public is exactly what it sounds like: anyone landing on your website by Zapplocal, either by typing the URL or coming through a search engine result click, will be able to see it.

i. Can be associated with you (i.e., your displayed business name, business address, logo image, featured image, image gallery, URL, page statistics, social sharing links, etc.)
ii. Can show up when someone does a search on Zapplocal or on a public search engine;
iii. Will be accessible to the Zapplocal-linked business directory, applications, and websites; and
iv. Will be accessible to anyone who uses our APIs and internal search.
v. When others share information about you, for instance sharing your website, or sharing a message you have posted on your website, using your social media options, they can also choose to make it public.
HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE RECEIVEWe use the information we receive about you in connection with the services and features we provide to you and other users like your subscribed customers or potential customers who might want to subscribe to your website and its contents, our partners, the advertisers that purchase ads on the site, and the developers that build the applications, and websites you use. For example, in addition to helping people see and find things that you do and share, we may use the information we receive about you:
• As part of our efforts to keep Zapplocal products, services and integrations safe and secure;
• To protect Zapplocal' or others' rights or property;
• To make suggestions to you and other users on Zapplocal, such as: suggesting what kind of messages to update or when to update them; and
• For internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research and service improvement. Granting us permission to use your information not only allows us to provide Zapplocal as it exists today, but it also allows us to provide you with innovative features and services we develop in the future that use the information we receive about you in new ways. While you are allowing us to use the information we receive about you, you always own all of your information. Your trust is important to us, which is why we don't share information we receive about you with others unless we have:
• Received your permission;
• Given you notice, such as by telling you about it in this policy; or
• Removed your name and any other personally identifying information from it.
Of course, for information others share about you, they control how it is shared. We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above. Typically, information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted. For certain categories of data, we may also tell you about specific data retention practices. We may enable access to public information that has been shared through our services. We may allow service providers to access information so they can help us provide services.
DELETING AND DEACTIVATING YOUR ACCOUNTIf you want to stop using your service with Zapplocal, you can get in touch with us to either deactivate or delete it.
• Deactivate Deactivating your account puts your account on hold. People searching for it online will no longer find it, but we do not delete any of your information. Deactivating an account is the same as you telling us not to delete any information because you might want to reactivate your account at some point in the future.
• Deletion When you delete your account, it is permanently deleted from Zapplocal. It typically takes about one month to delete an account, but some information may remain in backup copies and logs for up to 180 days. You should only delete your account if you are sure you never want to reactivate it. Certain information is needed to provide you with services, so we only delete this information after you delete your account.
