Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy became effective on October 3, 2015.

ROKO Labs LLC (“ROKO Labs” or “we”) has prepared this Privacy Policy to describe our practices regarding the information we collect from visitors to our website located at www.appideaawards.com (the “Event Site”).

Our Event Site provides information about the App Idea Awards Competition.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of important changes by posting a notice on the Event Site. The Privacy Policy posted on the Event Site will say when that version went into effect. If you continue to use the Event Site after a change, then you have accepted the new Privacy Policy.

The Event Site is not intended to subject ROKO Labs or any of its affiliates to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than that of the United States.

·         Browser and device information.

·         Information collected through cookies, pixel tags and other technologies.

·         Information about how you interact with and use the Event Site.

·         Other aggregated information.

b.      How We May Collect Other Information. We collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:

·         From your browser or device: Most browsers send standard information when you use the Internet. This information includes your device type, screen resolution, operating system version, and Internet browser type and version.

·         Through web technologies: We and our service providers may use cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, and other similar technologies to, among other things, facilitate your ongoing access to and use of the Event Site , present you with more tailored information about our products and services, and collect and store information about your use of the Event Site . To decline the use of cookies, consult “Your Choices” in Section 5.

·         That you volunteer: You may volunteer demographic information, as well as other information, such as your preferred means of communication. Unless combined with Personal Information, this information does not personally identify you or any other user.

If we combine Other Information with Personal Information, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information as long as it is combined.

For clarity, Other Information collected from Event Site visitors is non-personally identifiable and cannot be linked to Personal Information, except in the case where the Event Site visitor provides Personal Information to the Event Site (e.g., in a request for information). By contrast, the Other Information collected from Platform users is, in many cases, linked to Personal Information through the user log-in, and would be Personal Information.
