Cookies are information files that your web browser places on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. Cookies cannot damage user files, nor can they read information from a user's hard drive. Cookies allow websites to "remember" users' visits to a site, as well as some specific activities such as purchasing a product.
Google AdSense will save and read a cookie for the ad program. The cookie will remain in the visitor's computer for up to 90 days before expiring. This is a standard procedure for advertisers.
Switch Zoo App Purchase
If visitors purchase the Switch Zoo App, the online stores that handle the purchase (iTunes and Amazon) will take the information necessary to complete the transaction, including name, email address, physical address and payment information. The Switch Zoo site does not have access to this information.
Tubehead, the maker of Switch Zoo, has taken steps to ensure that our server is secure, including the implementation of SSL (Secure Sockets Layer, a standard security protocol), limiting the number of people who have access to our server, electronic security systems, and password protections which guard against unauthorized access.
Switch Zoo provides links to other websites (such as Smithsonian's National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute) that are governed by their own privacy policies or information collection practices, which may be substantially different from ours. We encourage visitors to other websites to review the privacy policies and information collection practices of those websites.
Switch Zoo visitors may email us their questions or comments. We do not sell, transfer, or share email addresses with third parties.
