We may also collect technical data and related information obtained from your device, such as the type of device you use, your device’s unique Device ID, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browser you use, and information about the way you use our Sites.

Use of Cookies
The Sites use cookies or analogous technologies such as web beacons, pixel tags, locally shared objects and clear GIFs to obtain certain types of information about your activity while on the Sites. "Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Our cookies enable us to facilitate access to different aspects of your account across our Sites. If you select the option for our Sites to remember your username and password, a cookie file will be stored on your hard drive after you log in. This allows us to re-populate your username and password on our login form, saving you the trouble of remembering it.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your web browser to not accept cookies.

We do not collect personal information about your online activities over time and across third party Web sites or online services.

How We Protect Your Information
We strive to make the Sites secure by implementing an information security program that contains administrative, technical, and physical controls.

Also, it may be possible for an unauthorized person to gain access to information about you notwithstanding our use of security measures. Therefore, please note that you enter information in the Sites at your own risk.

You can help protect yourself by being careful and responsible when you are online and by being aware that you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords and account information you have regarding the Sites. We also advise that you use up-to-date virus scanning software on your computer to reduce the risk of encountering a virus through emails. APS accepts no responsibility or liability for any loss or damage arising from your transmissions of data, the use of email or their attachments, or for any viruses or errors or delays in the contents that result from such email and data transmissions.

Protection of Children’s Privacy
Our Sites are general audience sites not directed at children under the age of 13. If we obtain actual knowledge that any information we collect has been provided by a child under the age of 13, we will take steps to promptly delete that information.

Links to Third Party Sites
The Sites may contain links to other sites that are not operated or controlled by APS ("Third Party Sites"). Use of any information you provide to or on these Third Party Sites is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of those sites. Therefore, we encourage you to review that Third Party Site's privacy policy and terms of use whenever you visit such sites. APS is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of Third Party Sites.

Third Party Information Collection
Some content or applications on the Sites may be provided by third parties, including advertising companies, ad networks and servers, analytics companies, and application providers. These third parties may use cookies or other tracking technologies to collect information, potentially including personal information, about your activities over time and across different websites when you use our Sites. Those third parties may provide APS with data collection, reporting, ad response measurement, analytical information, and assist with delivery of relevant marketing messages and advertisements. The tracking technologies may also allow the third parties to deliver targeted advertisements of our products and services on other websites or on social media networks and gauge their effectiveness.

APS does not control these third-party technologies and their use is governed by the privacy policies of those third parties. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly. For more information about third-party advertising networks and similar entities that use these technologies, including information and resources to opt out of interest-based advertising see www.aboutads.info/consumers and www.networkadvertising.org/choices.

You may also opt out of tracking and receiving tailored advertisements on your mobile device by some mobile advertising companies and other similar entities by downloading the App Choices app at www.aboutads.info/appchoices.  Please note opting out through these mechanisms does not opt you out of being served advertising. You may continue to receive generic ads while visiting our Sites and elsewhere online.

We have implemented Google’s Invisible reCAPTCHA technology on our Sites. Use of the Invisible reCAPTCHA is subject to the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

Social Network Account Data
Our Sites may allow you to sign into and associate your social network accounts including, but not limited to, Twitter and Facebook with APS. By using this functionality, you give APS permission to access all of the elements of your social network profile information that you have made available to be shared and to use it in accordance with the social network’s terms of use and this Privacy Policy. Please refer to the privacy settings in your social network account for information about what data is shared with APS and other connected applications and to manage the data that is shared through your account, including information about your activities using our Sites.  APS does not retain your username or password for social networking platforms for any longer than is necessary to complete an interaction. If you would like to disconnect a social media account from APS, refer to the settings of that social media account and its provider.

Our Sites may include social media plugins and widgets (“Features”). These Features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our Sites, the date and time of your visit, and other browser- and device-related information whether or not you are logged into the relevant social media account. If you are logged into the relevant social media account, this data may be associated with your user name and may be used by the parties providing such Features for advertising purposes.
