Identifiable Information promptly after it changes. You may review this information

you indicate upon registration that you are interested in receiving offers or information

We will keep your Personally Identifiable Information secure consistent with current
industry standards. Security of your Personally Identifiable Information is of utmost
concern to us. Personally Identifiable Information, once transmitted to us, will

which employs its own physical and network security measures. In addition, your
AppYet applications and/or content may be stored on Godaddy servers. A copy
Your AppYet application and user content are limited-access, where access is gained
through an obscured URL system. This obscured URL makes it difficult if not impossible
for a third party to guess the URL address of your application or content without an invitation
from you including the relevant URL. However, because the application and content are
not password-protected, a possibility exists that an unauthorized third party could
discover your application and/or content.

will also revise the updated date at the bottom of this Privacy page. We encourage
you to periodically review this Statement to stay informed about how we are helping
