12 - Cookies PolicyWhat are cookies?
A cookie is a file which is downloaded on your computer when you access certain web pages.
Among other things, cookies allow a web page to store and retrieve information about user or device-specific browsing habits. Depending on the information which they contain, and the way the equipment is used, they can also be used to recognize the user.
Which types of cookies do we use?
Cookies are files which are sent to a browser via a web server to register a User of APPFUTURA' activities on either a specific web page or all pages, apps and/or services (from here on, the Services). The main aim of cookies is to give the User faster access to the selected Services. Furthermore, services and adverts can be personalized using cookies, meaning each User can be offered potentially interesting information, selected based on the way they user the Services.
Additionally, APPFUTURA can keep informed of the Services solicited by Users, meaning they can put at their disposal suitable information for the tastes and preferences of each User.
Classification, aims and implementation of cookies on APPFUTURA:
Cookies can be divided into session-only and permanent, according to how long they last. The former expire when the User closes their browser. The latter expire when they've completed their designated purpose (for example, keeping the User identified in the website's Services) or can be manually deleted.
REGISTRATION COOKIES: Registration cookies are generated once the User has registered or previously opened their session, and are used to identify them in the Services section with the following objectives in mind:
Keeping track of the user. If a Service is closed and then reopened using the same browser or computer, the user will remain identified, making for easier site navigation. This mode can be switched off by clicking “close session”, which eliminates the cookie and means the User must open the session again to be identified the next time they use the Service in question.
Additionally, some Services might be connected to social networks like Facebook. When the User registers in a Service with social networking features, the network is authorized to save a persistent cookie which remembers their identity and guarantees access to the Services until it expires. The User can delete this cookie and revoke access to the Services by updating their preference in the social network in question.
ANALYTIC COOKIES: Each time a User visits a Service, a tool created by an external provider (specifically, Google Analytics) generates an analytical cookie in the User's computer. This cookie, which is only created by visits, is used to anonymously track the User's subsequent visits to this web page. The main reasons for this include:
Allowing anonymous tracking of browsing Users via the cookie (Only browsers and devices are identified, not people). This means approximate numbers of visits and visit times can be recorded.
Identifying (again, anonymously) the most often-visited, and therefore most relevant content for Users
Knowing if the User who is browsing is new or a repeat visit.
Important: Unless the User decides to register for one of APPFUTURA Services, the cookie will never be associated with any personal information which could identify them. These cookies will only be used with purposefully-created statistics which help optimize the User's experience on the site.
How do I disable cookies in the most common browsers?
Normally, it's possible to set browsers to reject cookies, or to stop accepting the cookies of one Service in particular.
All modern browsers allow you to update cookie preferences. These setting are normally found in “Options” or “Settings” in your browser menu. Here, you can also configure your browser or email provider, as well as install free tools to help you avoid downloading Web Bugs when you open an email.
We offer guidance on how to access the cookie preferences menu, and, where necessary, on browsing privacy in each of the main browsers:
Internet Explorer: Tools>-> Internet Options -> Privacy -> Settings. For more information, please consult Microsoft's customer help services, or the Help section of your browser.
Firefox: Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> History -> Personalized Setup. For more information, please consult Mozilla's customer help services, or the Help section of your browser.
Chrome: Configuration -> Show advanced options -> Privacy -> Content settings. For more information, please consult Google's customer help services, or the Help section of your browser.
Safari: Preferences -> Security. For more information, please consult Apple's customer help services, or the Help section of your browser.
What happens if cookies are disabled?
Some functions of the Services will be disabled, such as, for example, the ability to remain identified and receives location-specific information.

These specific conditions rule the relation between the Client (Depositor), Developer and AppFutura concerning the escrow service that AppFutura provides to their Users.
AppFutura will provide escrow service under the following conditions:
FIRST.-The Depositor's intellectual property will be safeguarded by a digital NDA within the AppFutura Escrow system. The property of the code provided will also be protected by such NDA and it will belong entirely to the Depositor. AppFutura may provide technical assistance prior to the start of the development process if needed.
SECOND.-The Developer has the right to request payment deposits on the Escrow system while working on the milestones associated with them. The Developer has the right to request a release once every milestone is completed, delivered and approved.
THIRD.-The Depositor will deliver payments to AppFutura, as agreed with the Developer. The amount of the payment will be deposited and held by APPFTURA until such payment is released by the Depositor. The Depositor will make a first deposit of at least 10% of the total price of the project. After this, the Depositor will be able to make deposits according to the progress of the project.
FOURTH.-The Deposit will be released if the Depositor informs to AppFutura that the Developer has carried out the stages of the project correctly. Once each deposit is released, AppFutura will lose all power over it and will no longer be held responsible for it.

AppFutura may take actions as long as there are payments deposited on the Escrow system. If there are no payments deposited, AppFutura has no leverage to act accordingly.
EIGHT.-If the discrepancy is not resolved, the Depositor may choose to cancel the project and give a negative rating to the Developer. Depositor may get a refund of the still deposited amounts on AppFutura or reuse those with a new candidate. All previously released payments are out of AppFutura's control and it is up to the Depositor and Developer to resolve its refund.
NINTH.-In the event of the Depositor hiring a new Developer, AppFutura cannot ensure hiring conditions to be the same. New conditions will have to be negotiated by the Depositor with new candidates.
TENTH.-The source code of projects in the AppFutura Escrow system will be property of the Depositor. Depositor has the right to request the latest updated source code at any point of the development process and the Developer must provide it. In any case, the Developers will provide the final source code when the project is completed or canceled by the Depositor. If the Developer refuses to provide the source code at any stage, AppFutura may take actions to publicly suspend and blacklist their AppFutura account.
