Welcome to appdater. We've provided this Privacy Policy to describe our collection, use and disclosure of information from users of our mobile application.

Information Collection and Use

Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Services and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Services.

    Registration Information: the user registration thru the app is optional. If the user would like to do so, he can do it using facebook registration e.g. by providing his account credentials. The user can choose what kind of information he would like to share with us: friends, email etc... This information if provided, will be collected and stored to allow the users in case of any new install to retrieve his previous choices done thru the app easily.

 

    Location: The mobile application may also ask you to share your location. This information is important to allow the users of this mobile app to use the "nearest" feature of the app. If the location is not provided the user can miss this feature.

 

    User IDs and Device IDs.  When you install the appdater mobile application, we create a unique identification number associated with that installation of the app called "User ID" and we may collect a unique device ID associated with your particular device ("Device ID").  If you opt for a registration thru facebook, we will associate your User ID or your Device ID with your Registration Information. 

 

    Usage Information.  When you use our Services, our servers will automatically record information that your device sends or transmits, including, but not limited to, user settings, location and information about your use of the Services.

If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions or all functionality of the Services.

 

 

Disclosure of the Information We Collect

    Information You Share.  While you can use appdater privately, we encourage you to share your interests, preferences and thoughts with others, and our Services are designed to enable that sharing.  That means that in most cases, the actions you take on the Services, will be viewable by other users using the social networking services such as facebook or twitter.

 

    Services Providers.  We might employ third parties to assist us in providing and improving the Services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance, database management and web analytics companies).  If these third parties receive non-public, personal information about you, they will be obligated not to disclose or use it for any purpose other than to perform tasks on our behalf.

 

    Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement. appdater cooperates with law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process, to protect the property and rights of appdater or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person or to prevent or restrict what we consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.

Information Security

appdater employs reasonable physical, technological and administrative security measures to protect the information it collects.  No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however.  Therefore, while we use commercially acceptable means to protect the information we collect, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Phishing

We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.
