With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Framework,500apps is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. In certain situations, 500apps may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
You may direct any inquiries or complaints related to our Privacy Shield compliance to email@example.com. If you have an unresolved privacy or data use concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, you may contact our U.S.-based third party dispute resolution provider (free of charge) at https://feedback-form.truste.com/watchdog/request.

500apps is complied under General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which is a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information from individuals who live in the European Union (EU). According to the GDPR act, all businesses located within the EU as well as businesses dealing with customers in the EU will have to look at compliant methods in dealing with EU consumer/customer data.
The GDPR mandates that EU visitors be given a number of data disclosures. We at 500apps follow necessary steps to facilitate such EU consumer rights as a timely notification in the event of personal data being breached.
If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA), you have certain data protection rights. If you wish to be informed what Personal Information we hold about you and if you want it to be removed from our systems, please contact us.
In certain circumstances, you have the following data protection rights:
Our principles towards personal data are as follows:
500apps aims to better protect consumer bankcard data from theft, loss, and misuse through the standards' requirements of PCI. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) are a set of operational and technical requirements that all entities using consumer bankcard information must uphold. PCI DSS are put into effect and administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, an industry consortium of American Express, Discover, JCB International, Mastercard and Visa Inc. formed in 2016.
500apps utilizes customer data to deliver services to our customers. Accordingly, all customer information to include cardholder data as well as other sensitive customer and company information, will be protected by all staff, contractors, partners, and services providers in accordance with well-defined policies and procedures.
500apps will operate on the security principle of "that which is not explicitly allowed is explicitly denied." Attempts by anyone to access, monitor, use or share information that is not explicitly allowed to them by our security program will be considered a security violation. Furthermore, access to sensitive information will be permitted on a "need to know" basis, such that employees have access to only those data and systems required to perform their assigned jobs.
We will deploy systems, processes, policies, and training to protect our mission critical data assets and customer privacy. Most important, we will monitor and enforce compliance to our policies.
Our online Subscription Service allows any company that uses it (our customers and 500apps itself) to build marketing web pages on our servers where visitors can learn more about the company, download content, and provide their contact information and other demographic information. This information, which is stored and managed on our service providers' servers, is then used so that the visitors can be contacted about their interest in the company's goods or services and interact with the company. 500apps provides the Subscription Service to our customers for their own marketing and lead generation, and we use it on our Websites for our own marketing and lead generation.
500apps collects information under the direction of its customers, and has no direct relationship with the individuals whose Personal Information it processes. If you are a customer of one of our customers and would no longer like to be contacted by one of our customer that use our Subscription Service, please contact the customer that you interact with directly. We may transfer Personal Information to companies that help us provide our service. Transfers to subsequent third parties are covered by the service agreements with our customers.

We use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web server. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize pages on our Websites, or register for the Subscription Service, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the same Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the customized features.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the 500apps Subscription Service or Websites you visit. 500apps keeps track of the Websites and the pages you visit within 500apps, in order to determine what portion of the 500apps Website or Subscription Service is the most popular or most used. This data is used to deliver customized content and promotions within the 500apps Website and Subscription Service to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
We may collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites using log files that are not associated with your name or other personal information. There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by us. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, internet service provider (ISP), the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, clickstream data, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by 500apps for the operation of the Subscription Service, to maintain quality of the Subscription Service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the 500apps Website. For these purposes, we do link this automatically-collected data to Personal Information such as name, email address, address, and phone number.
We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), which help us better manage the Website and Subscription Service by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages or in emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs in emails to our customers' Personal Information. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see "Opting Out and Unsubscribing".
Our customers can use the tools we provide, as well as tools provided by third parties, to collect Navigational Information when you visit their web pages on the Subscription Service. 500apps does not control our customers' use of these tools, nor do we control the information they collect or how they use it.
You can log in to our site using a Single Sign-on (SSO) service like your Google account. This service will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal information with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign up form. Such services may give you the option to post information about your activities on this Web site to your profile page to share with others within your network.
The Adobe Flash Player (and similar applications) use technology to remember settings, preferences and usage similar to browser cookies but these are managed through a different interface than the one provided by your Web browser. This technology creates locally stored objects that are often referred to as "Flash cookies". 500apps does not use Flash cookies. However, our customers of our software platform may create pages on the 500apps platform that employ Adobe Flash cookies. 500apps does not have access or control over our customers' Flash cookies, but you may access your Flash management tools from Adobe's website directly here.
Upon request, 500apps will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your Personal Information. If you provide us with your Personal Information, you have the following rights with respect to that information:
