Welcome to App Maker (“App Maker”, “we” “our” or “us”). We respect and protect the privacy of our customers and those who use our services.

We have designed the Platform to give you control over the information you provide using the Platform and other websites and services to which you connect your Platform account. Please take full advantage of these tools and make sure you only provide information or content that you want to provide.

Sharing with other apps and networks
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. These text files can be read by these websites and help to identify you when you return to a website. Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer when you have gone offline, while session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser.
To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to block and delete cookies, please visit http://www.aboutcookies.org/.
We use our own cookies to recognize you when you visit our Website or use our Apps. This means that you don’t have to log in each time you visit, and we can remember your preferences and settings.
In addition to our own cookies, we work with various reputable companies to help us analyze how the Platform is used, and to optimize our Websites and Apps to deliver the best possible experience.
We think it’s important that you are able to control the collection of personal data relating to your use of App Maker and have therefore made sure that you can opt out of any personal data collection using cookies or other technologies as set out below.
You can use the settings within your browser to control the cookies that are set on your computer or mobile device. However, please be aware that cookies are important to many aspects for the Platform – if you set your browser to reject cookies, you may not be able to enjoy all of the features of the Platform. To find out how to see what cookies have been set and how to reject and delete cookies, please visit http://www.aboutcookies.org.
Deleting your account
You can delete your account from Settings section on the Platform at any time. Please bear in mind that, if you delete your account, all data associated with your account will be deleted and may not be recoverable. You are therefore advised to copy or back up all content uploaded to your account before you delete your account.
Even if you delete your Platform account, it is possible that your information may still show up in some internet search results for a short while afterwards, if the search engine maintains a temporary cache of web pages. Search engines’ caching processes are outside of App Maker’s control and therefore we cannot be responsible for any information that remains cached by search engines after that information has been removed from the Platform.
Access to your Data
As described above, most of the personal information you provide to us can be accessed and updated in the Settings page of your Platform account. If you wish to access, amend or delete any other personal information we hold about you, or if you have any objection to the processing of any information that we hold about you, please contact us at email@example.com, or the address provided below. Anything that cannot be changed is deemed required by App Maker. If you feel you are not comfortable with this information being used by App Maker, please delete your account and cease using the Services.
If you ask us to delete your account (either via the Settings page or by email), we will do so within a reasonable period of time, but we may need to retain some of your personal information in order to satisfy our legal obligations, or where we have a legitimate reason for doing so.
International data transfers
Our Services are not intended for use by children. Anyone under the age of 16 is not permitted to use the Platform and must not attempt to register an account or submit any personal information to us. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from any person who is under the age of 16.
