If you prefer not to receive ads that are tailored to your interests, you can opt out of AppDrive using your information to provide you interest-based ads at any time by emailing your device id to email@example.com. You can also usually opt out of the receipt of all in-app interest-based ads by using your device’s privacy settings.

If while using one of our Partner Apps you recognize a problem with an integrated AppDrive ad and notify us of the problem or otherwise contact us via email or with a question, we will ask for your email address or other contact information so that you can receive a response.

This information may, where permitted by applicable law, then be combined with other information we hold about you. Information and technologies we may use include:
Device/Usage Information. When you interact with the AppDrive Web Services, we may collect information such as (a) IP addresses, unique device identifiers (e.g. Google Advertising ID (GAID), Android ID, ID for Advertisers (IDFA), ID for Vendors (IDFV), MAC address, International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI), or other device IDs), and other information about your device(s), browser types, browser language, operating system, the state or country from which you accessed the services; and (b) information related to the ways in which you interact with the AppDrive Web Services, such as: referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, internal AppDrive subdomain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time you used the services, error logs, and other similar information.

In addition to cookies, we and/or our third-party advertising partners may use a technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs) that help us better manage and analyze content. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages. Where permissible under applicable law, we may also include Web beacons in e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether the message has been opened and for other analytics purposes.
To help us better understand your use of the AppDrive Web Services, we may use third-party web analytics providers, such as Google Analytics. These service providers use the sort of technology described in the “AppDrive’s Cookies and Related Tracking Technologies” Section above. The information collected by this technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate users’ use of the websites. To prevent Google Analytics from collecting or using your information, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on.
When using AppDrive or other you may also receive interest-based in-app ads. Each operating system (e.g., iOS, Android) provides its own instructions on how to prevent the delivery of such in-application ads. You may review the support materials and/or the privacy settings for the respective operating systems in order to opt-out of interest-based in-app ads. For any other devices and/or operating systems, please visit the privacy settings for the applicable device or operating system or contact the applicable platform operator.

These safeguards take into account the sensitivity of the information that we collect, process and store and the current state of technology.
