Web Browser Information Use


Apfet may use data your web browser passes on, such as your IP address, browser name and version, computer operating system, resources you are accessing, and the last resource visited by you. These items are recorded in the server’s log file, as is common practice with all websites. The information gathered is often analyzed to better understand what our customers want and need from a technological perspective.

The information collected thus is classified as Non-Personally Identifiable Information, meaning the information gathered does not lead to your identification. Keeping this in mind, we reserve the right to utilize and share the same with third parties. Please note that wherever non-personally identifiable and personally identifiable information is combined, we will treat the combination as personally identifiable information for as long as it remains so combined.

Guardians of children under 13 years of age can ask for reviewing, editing, or prohibiting personally identifiable information about the child from being utilized by Apfet by sending an application at team@apfet.com.

Please note that in case a request is made to exclude information from being used by Apfet, the child’s enrollment in Apfet may not continue and this might also terminate his/her participation in the Apfet program.
