Privacy Policy

Effective as of April 6, 2018, Appy Pie LLC (“Appy Pie”) have updated the Privacy Policy.

Introduction

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Appy Pie LLC we have a few fundamental principles:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)

We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights. We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services. In our social networking and mobile application products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy, which incorporates these goals:

Appy Pie LLC  (“Appy Pie”) operates several websites including Appypie.com (collectively, the “Websites”), as well as a number of mobile applications on behalf of our customers (collectively, the “Applications”). It is Appy Pie LLC ‘s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our Websites and Applications.

Website Visitors and Application Users

Appy Pie LLC collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Appy Pie LLC ‘ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Appy Pie LLC ‘ visitors use its Websites and Applications. From time to time, Appy Pie LLC  may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Websites or Applications.

Appy Pie LLC also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Appy Pie LLC does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Appy Pie LLC ‘s Websites and users of Appy Pie LLC ’s Applications choose to interact with Appy Pie LLC in ways that require Appy Pie LLC  to gather
personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Appy Pie LLC gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a social network at Appypie.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Appy Pie LLC  – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Appy Pie LLC collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Appy Pie LLC. Appy Pie LLC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Website-related and Application-related activities.
