We do not combine IP addresses with any personally identifying information, nor do we compile any session activity reports by IP address.
A cookie allows us to store the personal preferences that you set during each visit to these Sites, which in turn allows us to speed up your future activities at these Sites.

In connection with cookies we may use web beacons to track response rates to certain email communications that a user has opted to receive from us. If a user has registered with our Service, we may collect certain personal information in connection with the web beacon including the referring email address. This information is not shared with third parties.

Apptaizer recognizes that the EU has an “omnibus” data protection regime established pursuant to the European Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC) (the “Directive”) and that Switzerland has a comprehensive data protection law (together, the “Data Protection Laws”). Consistent with its pledge to protect personal privacy, Apptaizer adheres to the Data Protection Laws.
When Apptaizer collects personal information directly from individuals in the EU and Switzerland, it will inform them about the purposes for which it collects and uses their personal information, the types of non-agent third parties, if any, to which Apptaizer discloses that information, and the choices and means, if any, that Apptaizer offers individuals for limiting the use and disclosure of their personal information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide personal information to Apptaizer, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before Apptaizer uses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.

For sensitive personal information, Apptaizer will give individuals the opportunity to affirmatively and explicitly (opt-in) consent to the disclosure of the information to a non-agent third party or the use of the information for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.
Apptaizer will provide individuals with reasonable methods to exercise their choices.
TRANSFERS TO AGENTS: Apptaizer will obtain assurances from its agents that they will safeguard personal information consistently with this Policy. If Apptaizer has knowledge that an agent is using or disclosing personal information in a manner contrary to this Policy, Apptaizer will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure.
