Plexus Tech, Inc. is committed to protecting your privacy and providing you the most powerful and safe online experience. This publication intends to help you understand how personal information you provide to Plexus Tech, Inc. is collected and used, so you can make informed decisions when using all the apps of Plexus Tech Inc. (together with its affiliates, fotobooks, EZKart, myHopz, mealHogz)
How we collect and use personal information
We collect personal information about you in three ways: (1) when you share personal information with us, by signing up to use our service, (2) when you purchase something from us, and give us credit or debit card information to do that, and (3) we collect some information automatically.
We may collect information about your computer, including but not limited to your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and in order to create reports. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and helps us to improve our services and websites.

Personal Information That We Collect
- A valid and verifiable email address
- A valid and verifiable phone number
- Your digital content and related titles, captions, and annotations.
- You will also be required to select a secret password. Keeping the password secret is your responsibility. We are not responsible if you let the wrong people have your password, although we will do everything we can to help you if you notify us of a password breach.
Our applications enable people to discover and share information with one another in family or friend groups ("Groups"). Subject to your consent, the personal information contained in any content you post to the service will be shared with other family or friends who become members of any of your Groups. If you participate in community discussions and chats, we will capture that information. The amount and type of information you share voluntarily in these ways, and the decision whether to share posts, and with whom to share them, is always your choice.
To personalize your experience and to improve our products and services, we may ask you to provide us with information about your personal or professional interests, demographics and experiences with our products or services. Providing this additional information is optional. If you elect not to share this information with us, it will not affect your access to the service.
With your consent, we will also use your email address, phone number, and/or other member registration information to advise you of new members and new postings to your Group, to let you know about new features or other offers of interest from us or our affiliates. We will also use that information as necessary to address your customer service needs and requests. Other than members of your Group, access to your personal information is limited to our authorized staff and is restricted by our own internal password protection mechanisms.
If you invite others to join one of our applications, or if you create administered accounts for other people, you may be asked to submit to us limited personal information about other people. For example, if you want to invite someone to join one of your Groups, you will be asked to submit the invitee's name and email address, and/or phone number. In this circumstance, we only collect your invitee’s name, email address, and phone number.
Also, when you share content from any of your Groups, we collect the email addresses, and in some applications the phone number, of the recipients of any content you have elected to share with others. We will not disclose these email addresses and phone numbers to any third parties. (Please note, however, that these people will be able to forward your email and phone number containing the shared content to other parties, if they choose.)
Financial Information that you give us
Some elements of the Plexus Tech Applications experience are available on a paid, continuous subscription basis, and we also offer products and services for sale through our online store. To facilitate payment, we will request certain required personal information from you, including your personal credit card or debit card information.
When you subscribe to any of the paid portions of our service or when you make a purchase from our online store, we will collect the following personal and financial information from you:
- Billing address
- Shipping address
- Phone number
- Credit/debit card information
- Items purchased
We will not share this financial information with anyone outside of our company, other than the financial institutions involved in processing your payment or any third party service providers who we ask to process this information on our behalf in order that we can fulfill our contractual obligations to you. We will comply in all respects with applicable consumer credit laws.
Please note: If you click away from our website to visit the site of any third party advertiser or sponsor, you may be asked for your payment card or other personal information in order to purchase or use products and services offered. These companies have their own privacy and data collection practices. We have no responsibility or liability for these independent policies. You should therefore review their privacy notices carefully if you have concerns about how your personal information may be used.

A cookie is a tiny data file, which resides on your computer and allows Plexus Tech Inc. to recognize you as a member when you return to Plexus Tech Applications from the same phone or computer. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your phone. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, when you register with Plexus Tech Applications, a cookie helps Plexus Tech Inc. to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to Plexus Tech Applications, the information you previously provided can be retrieved. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the features of the Plexus Tech Applications services.
Security of Your Personal Information

When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
