Mobile Apps Privacy Policy Children Apps Privacy Policy


Last updated: 18 May, 2016

This privacy policy governs your use of the software applications for mobile devices that was created by Rıfat Emir Sönmez and Appinarium.

Appinarium, Rıfat Emir Sönmez (collectively, “Appinarium” or “we”) respect the privacy rights of our consumers and we are committed to protecting the personal information collected about you. To further this commitment, we have adopted this Mobile Application Privacy Policy (“Mobile Privacy Policy” or “MPP”) to help you make an informed decision about whether to use or continue using any of Appinarium’s mobile products or services (“App(s)”). This Mobile Privacy Policy will inform you about Appinarium’s policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of your user information.

By using Appinarium Apps, you signify your assent to this Mobile Privacy Policy.

This MPP may be revised periodically and this will be reflected by the “Last Updated” date above. Please revisit this page to stay aware of any changes. If we make material changes to this MPP, we will provide you with additional notice of such changes by updating the description of the App in the applicable App store or by providing in-App alerts. Your continued use of the Apps shall constitute your agreement to this MPP and any future revisions.

1. The Information Appinarium Collects

This MPP applies only to information submitted and collected by Appinarium via its Apps. The third party online/mobile store from which you purchase and/or install the Apps may also collect and use personal and non-personal information about you. This MPP does not apply to information that may be collected by such third party application store, and Appinarium is therefore not responsible for the information collected by such third party.

User-Provided Personal Information

Although you may provide certain personally identifiable information (such as your phone number, e-mail address, credit card or other payment information, etc.) when purchasing an App, this information is provided to the online/mobile application store in connection with your purchase and/or registration of the App. The online/mobile application store providers do not share your information with Appinarium. Appinarium will not receive or retain any of the personally identifiable information you share with such store providers in connection with your use of the App. The information that we collect through your download and use of the Apps is limited to the public profile information within your social media profile on Google+, Facebook, and/or Twitter, if you choose to register your App account via such social media providers. This information may include your first and/or last name, profile picture, and e-mail address.

For the support of internal operations, Appinarium collects your device identifier (“device ID”) and IP address. We do not access or store information that you have saved on your mobile device such as contacts and appointments. In addition, if permitted by your mobile device settings, the App may provide, to Third Party Advertisers, (i) your device ID (as further described in Section 3 and (ii) your precise location data (as further described in Section 5 ).

Children’s Information

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important to Appinarium. For that reason, Appinarium does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information or non-personally identifiable information from users under 13 years of age, other than as permitted by law in support of the internal operations. If Appinarium learns that personally identifiable information of users under the age of 13 has been collected, other than for support of the internal operations, Appinarium will take reasonable steps to remove such information. If you believe that we may have unintentionally collected personal information about your child under 13 years of age, you may contact us at:

Anonymous Information

This is information that does not directly or indirectly identify you as an individual user. Appinarium and other third parties may passively collect non-personal information from you when you access or use Apps. We may collect:

2. The Way Appinarium Uses Information

We may use certain information (such as user usage data, IP addresses, device ID, browser type, clickstream data, cookies, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Apps and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends.

3. IBA Disclosure - Third Party Advertisers

Certain Appinarium Apps are currently supported by third party ad servers or ad networks that serve advertisements (“Third Party Advertisers”), including behavioral or interest based advertising (“Interest Based Advertising”), within the Appinarium Apps. These Third Party Advertisers use technology to send, directly to your mobile device, the advertisements and links that appear in the Appinarium Apps. They may automatically receive your device ID, IP address or geo-location data when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content you see. Please see this list of our Third Party Advertisers for certain Appinarium Apps, and their respective policy policies for information regarding their privacy practices.

Opt-Out for Interest Based Advertising

Your mobile device may allow you to opt out of certain Interest Based Advertising.

iOS – On your iOS device (iPhone or iPad), open “Settings > Privacy > Advertising” and turn on “Limit Ad Tracking” to opt-out of interest based ads. Please see additional information from Apple here:

Android – Open the Settings app on your Android phone, tap Ads and enable “Opt out of interest based ads”.

Please note that if you opt of certain Interest Based Advertising, you may continue to receive contextual ads based on other non-personal information, such as ads related to the content of the App you are using.

4. When Appinarium Discloses Information

We may share non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, mobile device type, etc.) with interested third parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, advertisements, promotions and/or functionality on Appinarium Apps. In addition, certain Third Party Advertisers may collect limited personally identifiable information, such as device ID, IP address or geo-location data, as further described in Sections 3 and 5.

We may receive and release personally identifiable information and/or non-personally-identifiable information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws, or respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant.

In instances when Appinarium is provided with personally identifiable information and/or non-personally-identifiable information, we reserve the right to disclose such information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our Terms of Service (if applicable), take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of our Apps, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Appinarium, our users or others.

5. Precise Location Data

Certain Third Party Advertisers in Appinarium Apps may collect precise location data, or street-level location information, about you. Your mobile device may allow you to opt out of the collection of Precise Location Data by the Third Party Advertiser in the Appinarium App, as further described below.

iOS – In order to disable the collection of Precise Location Data on iOS, you may turn Location Services off for the applicable Appinarium App via the menu “Settings > Privacy > Location Services”. Then select the applicable Appinarium App and set the “Share My Location” status to “Never”. Please see additional information from Apple here:

6. Your Choices

Some Appinarium Apps are free-to-play and supported by advertisements. In these instances, you may not opt out of receiving such advertisements. For those Appinarium Apps that you pay a fee, there may be specific targeted advertising. If you do not wish to be served advertisements, please do not use our Apps. Please contact Appinarium via email at with any questions or comments about your personal information, your consent, your opt-in or opt-out choices, or this MPP, in general.

7. Appinarium’s Commitment to Data Security

Appinarium uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of our systems. These safeguards include, among other things, limiting access to such data to those employees performing a legitimate business function, use of encryption and passwords, and the storage of data on secure servers or computers. These measures are also designed to protect any user information Appinarium may obtain, collect and/or retain as described in this MPP from unauthorized access, disclosure, use and modification. However, please be aware that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.
