Privacy Policy
Apps ON Deal ("AppsOnDeal") provides a service on which Developers offer apps to users for free or with a discount (Apps ON Deal). This Privacy Policy (the "Privacy Policy") describes the privacy practices that AppsOnDeal, and its affiliates, employ with regard to information, including personal information, that it collects and receives from: (a) Developers who offer apps for free or with a discount ("Apps"), (b) users of apps, and (c) visitors of the Apps ON Deal website located at http://www.appsondeal.com/ ("Website Users").
Third Party Website
You could be directed to other sites that are developed and administered by people or companies which are not affiliates of AppsOnDeal. These other sites may place their own cookies on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of these companies or people. For example, this Privacy Policy does not govern the privacy practices of the Developers and Developer Apps that may use the AppsOnDeal services, as the Developers and Developer Apps are not controlled by AppsOnDeal. We suggest that when you link to another site you review that site's privacy policy, as it may be different from this Privacy Policy. AppsOnDeal is not responsible for the actions of those people or companies, the content of their sites, the use of information you provide to them, or any products or services they may offer. Any link to those sites does not constitute our sponsorship of, or affiliation with, those people or companies.
