Privacy Policy

AppFlash Privacy Policy

AppFlash delivers an easily accessible way to find movie, restaurant, music and app recommendations on your mobile device. AppFlash is covered by the Verizon privacy policy as well as the AppFlash-specific privacy practices described here.

Information we collect

We collect information about your device and your use of the AppFlash services. This information includes your mobile number, device identifiers, device type and operating system, and information about the AppFlash features and services you use and your interactions with them.  We also access information about the list of apps you have on your device.

With your permission, AppFlash also collects information about your device’s precise location from your device operating system as well as contact information you store on your device.   

How information is used and shared

Information we collect is used to deliver, maintain and support AppFlash services; enhance application features; customize and personalize your experiences including the advertisements you see; and provide social network interactions. Location information enhances your AppFlash experience, by, for example, providing nearby restaurant and movie options. Contact information stored on your device is used to facilitate calls you initiate from within the AppFlash experience.

AppFlash information may be shared within the Verizon family of companies, including Oath (formed by the combination of AOL and Yahoo) where it may be used to help provide more relevant advertising within the AppFlash experiences and in other places, including non-Verizon sites, services and devices.

Some AppFlash experiences provide you the opportunity to use on-demand transportation services, such as Uber and Lyft.  Information about your destination location may be transferred to these services when you use them.  AppFlash experiences that link directly to others’ sites or apps are covered by the privacy policies applicable to those sites and apps

Your choices

The Verizon, Oath and Yahoo privacy policies provide detailed information about choices you have with respect to the ways in which you receive advertising outside of AppFlash.

You can control whether AppFlash collects location and contact information about your device using settings available on your device.

You can opt-out of receiving advertisements targeted in apps on your mobile device using the “Limit Ad Tracking” or similar capability on your device or by following the instructions provided at this Mobile Device Choices page.
