Any information you share with a third-­‐party website through the Services will be collected by Apption Labs and its affiliates (such as Apption Labs, Inc.). We will use such information in compliance with this Privacy Policy.

D. Use of Cookies
The Websites (one or any of them) may send a "cookie" to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other websites. Cookies do not damage your system. Cookies allow us to recognize you as a user when you return to any of the Websites using the same computer and web browser. We use cookies to identify which areas of our Websites you have visited, so the next time you visit the Websites, those pages may be readily accessible. We also may use this information to better personalize the content that you see on the Websites. Most browser software can be set to reject Cookies. However, if you reject our Cookies, certain functionality on the Websites may not work correctly or at all. We do not link Non-­‐Personal Information from Cookies to you Personally Identifiable Information. In the course of optimizing the Websites to our Users, we may allow authorized third parties to place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. Any information provided to third parties through cookies will not be personally identifiable, but may provide general segment information for the enhancement of your user experience by providing more relevant advertising. Apption Labs does not store unencrypted personally identifiable information in the cookies.

E. Web Beacons
Apption Labs also may use web beacons, pixels, anonymous ad network tags, and cookies to collect Non-­‐Personal Information about your use of the Websites and the websites of selected sponsors and advertisers, to collect anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for advertisers, and to collect data related to your use of special promotions or newsletters. The information collected by Web Beacons also allows us to statistically monitor how many people open our emails and for what purposes these actions are being taken. Our Web Beacons are not used to track your activity outside of the Websites or the websites of our sponsors. We do not link Non-­‐Personal Information from Web Beacons to Personally Identifiable Information without Your permission. However, because your web browser requests advertisements and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their Websites. If you are a non-­‐registered Visitor to the Website, the only information we collect will be Non-­‐Personal Information through the use of cookies or web beacons.

F. Log files, IP Addresses and Information about Your Computer and Mobile device.
Due to the communications standards on the Internet, when you visit the Websites, the Apps or the Cloud Services, we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave the Websites. Apption Labs also receives the internet protocol (“IP”) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, email patterns, your mobile device (including your UDID) and mobile operating system (if you are accessing the Websites using a mobile device), as well as the name of your ISP or your mobile carrier. We may also receive location data passed to it from third-­‐party services or GPS-­‐enabled devices that you have enabled. Also, as described above in Section 2. C., Apption Labs receives information when you access third-­‐party web pages through the Services. The link between your IP address and your personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties without your permission.
