Privacy Policy

Thank you for using MINIPPS.We wrote this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how weuse it, and what choices you have. Because we’re an internet company, some ofthe concepts below are a little technical, but we’ve tried our best to explainthings in a simple and clear way. We welcome your questions and comments on this policy.

What information do we collect?

We collect information in a few different ways:

1. When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it

When you sign up for or use our products, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, profile photo, comments, likes, email address you used to sign up, and any other information you provide us. If you’re using MINIPPS on your mobile device, you can also choose to provide uswith location data.

You also may give us permission to access your information in other services.For example, you may link your Facebook or Twitter account to MINIPPS, which allows us to obtain information from those accounts (like your friends orcontacts). The information we get from those services often depends on yoursettings or their privacy policies, so be sure to check what those are.

2. We also get technical information when you use our products

These days, whenever you use a website, mobile application, or other internet service, there’s certain information that almost always gets created and recorded automatically. The same is true when you use our products. Here aresome of the types of information we collect:

·        Log data. When you use MINIPPS, our servers automatically record information (“log data”), including information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website or your mobile app sends when you’re using it.This log data may include your Internet Protocol address, the address of the web pages you visited that had MINIPPS features, browser type and settings, thedate and time of your request, how you used MINIPPS, and cookie data.

·        Cookie data. Depending on how you’re accessing our products, wemay use “cookies” (a small text file sent by your computer each time you visitour website, unique to your MINIPPS account or your browser) or similartechnologies to record log data. When we use cookies, we may use “session”cookies (that last until you close your browser) or “persistent” cookies (thatlast until you or your browser delete them). For example, we may use cookies tostore your language preferences or other MINIPPS settings so you don‘t have toset them up every time you visit MINIPPS. Some of the cookies we use areassociated with your MINIPPS account (including personal information about you,such as the email address you gave us), and other cookies are not.

·        Device information. In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using MINIPPS on, including what type ofdevice it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, uniquedevice identifiers, and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings.For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you’reusing a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or an Android phone. To learn more about whatinformation your device makes available to us, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.

3. Our partners and advertisers may share information with us

Sometimes our partners may let us collect information when you use their services, or may share with us the information they collect. Forexample:

·        Some websites or apps use MINIPPS features like our “App4SAP”button. If so, we may collect log information (described above) from thosesites or apps.

·        Online advertisers typically share information with the websitesor apps where they run ads to measure and/or improve those ads. We also receive this information, which may include information like whether clicks on ads ledto purchases or a list of criteria to use in targeting ads.

How do we use the information we collect?

We also use the information we collect to offer you customized content, including:

·        Applications or blog posts you might like. For example, if you’ve indicated that you’re interested in application or visited application vendorsite that has MINIPPS features, we may suggest related application, or peoplethat we think you might like.
