This information could include, but is not limited to, the user ID associated with your account (for example, your Facebook UID) any information that you have permitted the third party to share with us, and any information you have made public in connection with that service. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services.
When visiting our website, we may send one or more cookies to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. A cookie may also convey information to us about how you navigate the website (i.e., the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions you take on the site), and allow us or our business partners to track your usage of the site over time. Cookies remain on your hard drive after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. These can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.
When visiting the site, APC may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons) which are used to anonymously track the online usage patterns of the visitors to the site. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients.
When you access the website via a mobile device (including but not limited to smart-phones or tablets), APC may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers. Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by APC or hosting providers. A device identifier may convey information to us about how you navigate the website. A device identifier may remain persistently on your device to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation. In addition, we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store “location data,” which may include GPS coordinates (e.g. latitude and/or longitude) or similar information regarding the location of your mobile device. Location data may convey to us information about how you navigate the website
