Who We Are

Appery LLC (“Appery”, “we”, or “us”) is the creator of the Appery.io platform for developers, and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Exadel, Inc., based in Walnut Creek, California.

Appery respects your right to privacy and your right to limit exchanges of information to only those you initiate. As explained in more detail below, we do acquire certain personal information from private individuals in the course of business, but we do not share this personal information with third parties. We do use this information to better serve you and facilitate your use of our services, applications, and web site.

By using any of Appery’s services, applications, website, mobile sites, and/or other goods or services (collectively, the “Services”), and by also consenting to provide your Personal Information (defined below) when you register or sign up, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”).

What This Privacy Policy Covers

This Privacy Policy describes Appery’s practices with respect to Personal Information and Anonymous Information that we collect when you register for or use our Services. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the use of your Personal Information that may be collected by third parties that Appery does not own or control or that do not support Appery in providing the Services. “Personal Information” is information that is personally identifiable like names, addresses, e-mail addresses, or phone numbers, as well as other non-public information that is associated with the foregoing, as described herein.

What Information Do We Collect?

Information you provide us: We may collect the following Personal Information when you voluntarily provide it to us through a number of features available on the Services and consent to this. For example:

  • If you register through the Services to receive and use our Services, including through registration forms, product order information, or e-mail messages sent to us, and/or to receive content from us such as newsletters, marketing materials, or other content from us, we collect your full name, postal address (if supplied), phone number (if supplied) and e-mail address
  • If you submit a product review, we collect your profile information
  • When you contact us through our Contact Us submission form, we will collect any information that is contained in (and/or attached to) your e-mail, so that we can respond to your questions and comments.
  • We collect information that you share with us, such as when you register or create an account with us, input your billing and shipping information for purchases, or request customer service or contact us regarding your online shopping experience. This also includes information you provide us through technology, such as through a cookie placed on your computer when you visit our online site(s).

Your participation in any of these activities is voluntary and we only use the personal information that you provide for the purposes for which it was collected.

You will always have the opportunity to “unsubscribe” from receiving e-mail or other communication at any time.

Information we collect automatically: The Appery web server also records visitor IP addresses and domain names for reporting and site usage analysis. This information is reported internally and then purged when necessary.

  • Services usage information: Appery and our third–party service providers may also use a variety of technologies that passively or automatically collect information about how our visitors are browsing the site, including your operating system, browser type, pages visited and your use of tools on the Services. This data helps us understand what content and services are most relevant to you, so we can customize our Services to your needs.
  • Cookies: Like many websites, we use “Cookies” for our website, which are small text files placed on your browser to facilitate site navigation and to personalize your experience. Cookies allow us to select which ads or offers are most likely to appeal to you, based on your interests, preferences, location, or demographic information. There are a couple different types of cookies. A “session” cookie is stored only in your computer’s working memory (RAM) and only lasts for your browsing session. When you close all your browser’s windows, or when you shut down your computer, the session cookie disappears forever. A “persistent” cookie is stored on your computer’s hard drive until a specified date, which could be tomorrow, next week, or 10 years from now. Persistent cookies stay on your computer until either a) they expire, b) they are overwritten with newer cookies, or c) you manually remove them. If you would prefer not to accept cookies, you can change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether or not to accept it; or set your browser to automatically not accept any cookies. While you will still be able to use the Services if you disable Cookies in your browser, certain parts of the Services may not function as effectively.
  • Server log files: An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your internet service provider and is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you visit one of our Services, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. We use IP addresses for purposes such as routing visitors to the appropriate website for the visitor’s country, calculating usage levels, helping diagnose server problems, and administering our Services. If you accessed one of our Services using a mobile device like a smartphone, we may also collect your phone’s unique device ID and other similar mobile device data.

Information we collect through Third Parties: We also collect the following information from third parties:

  • Third Party Applications: We also offer and deliver services, content or interactive features through and/or using third party application programming interfaces (API), gadgets, extensions that are hosted on our Services or through other third party websites, or social networking platforms. When you participate in these services, products, applications, or otherwise connect with, or “accept” or “allow” third party applications, networks, platforms or services through our Services and/or one of our services or products, you are authorizing those third parties to receive your information and additionally to potentially share any or all of your information with us, based on your privacy or other settings on the particular third party network or platform. Any personal or other information we receive by these means will be treated and/or processed according to this Privacy Policy.
  • Location data: Some of our Services may allow you to submit information about your general location, such as your ZIP code or address, in order to locate stores that sell our products or provide other location-related services. With your consent, some of our Services also may capture and record certain geo-location or global positioning data in order to provide location-related functionality. We may link such location data to other information that you provide to us or that may be accessed in connection with your use of our Services.

Appery will not intentionally disclose a private individual’s personal information to any third parties for marketing or promotional purposes or for any other purpose unless a court orders us to do so or unless the private individual authorizes us to do so, in which case we may disclose personal information to the extent of the authorization.

Online Advertising

To provide you a more relevant and interesting experience, we may work with third party companies to display ads elsewhere on the Internet. These companies may use cookies (a small text file), pixels, or similar technologies that are placed in browsers to gather information about your visits to Appery Services as well as your visits elsewhere on the Internet. These companies use this information to provide you more relevant advertising known as interest-based advertising. Some of these companies may be participants in the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”). The DAA offers a choice mechanism with respect to certain types of data collection and use. Visit www.aboutads.info to exercise choice with respect to participants of the DAA. If you change computers or browsers, use multiple computers or browsers, or delete your cookies, you may need to repeat this process for each computer and each browser.
