Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses
An IP address is a number that is naturally relegated to your PC at whatever point you are on the Internet. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
When collecting information we do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user’s session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous.
We may utilize IP delivers to review the utilization of our site. We can and will utilize IP delivers to recognize a client when vital for security purposes.
What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small text file sent by a web server and stored on your hard drive, your computer’s memory, or in your browser so that it can be read back later. Cookies cannot “read” information about you from your computer or be used to “steal” information about you; and cookies do not carry viruses. Cookies are a basic way for a server to identify you (most cookies identify the computer you happen to be using at the time, not you personally). Cookies are used for many things from personalizing start up pages to facilitating online purchases. Cookies help sites recognize return visitors and they perform a particularly important function when you engage in secure Internet browsing. For your security, our Service Providers do not store any of your personal information in cookies. The cookies used in our Internet Portal are further described below.
Internet Portal Cookies
Our service provider uses several cookies to provide features within the Portal. The “Google Analytics” cookie is sent to all Portal visitors in order to help us collect general information on all Portal visitors. This cookie is sent to your computer hard drive and provides us information such as; when you accessed our site, which pages you accessed in the portal, and what Internet provider you used when you accessed our site. The information collected through this cookie is not personally identifiable and is only used for statistical purposes to assist us in our planning process and our marketing program.
When visitors come to the Portal and select the “Accept all cookies” pop-up, our service provider sends an additional cookie to your hard drive, which enables you to customize the Portal and bypass the login process each time you revisit the Portal. These cookies are retained on your computer until you delete them. These cookies only contain a unique user identification number and do not contain or collect any personally identifiable information.
Disclosure of Information
We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our customers, former customers, website visitors or portal visitors to anyone, except as permitted by law.

We will not disclose any personal information that you provide to us, unless you specifically authorize its disclosure.
Your main communication with us is via your personal crypto banker. ALL information that you provide in those conversations are strictly between you as member and APYHARVEST.

But we will keep backups for all of them, in case you accidentally erase any of your email messages with us, or in case that you lose your main email account connected to your personal crypto banker. It is all completely secure and you can restore your emails at any time.
In the future we may send you email notices for certain required disclosures if you choose to accept electronic disclosures or account statements. We may also send you emails marketing our products and services. We will always provide you an opportunity to opt-in or opt-out of email advertising promotions.
