This Privacy Policy is applicable to Users who register on the Platform (“Users” or “You”) together with the Conditions of Use and the Cookies Policy.

About the Appgree platform

The Appgree platform is an application managed by us or other Users (host), which is used to send questions to members of a community or group of Users, whatever its size, and to collect their responses and rankings in order to establish the most widely supported proposals in record time using an innovative new algorithm (DemoRank). A Host is that User who creates and, therefore, manages channels in Appgree in order to dialogue with other Users or publishes questions, in general. Appgree channels can be of public access for all Users (“public channels”) or of restricted access for certain groups of Users (“hidden” or “private” channels).

Users can access Appgree through an application that can be downloaded on your mobile devices and/or through its website version which can be accessed from any compatible browser. In some cases, Users can also access Appgree through the website or mobile app of third Parties. This third option is possible thanks to the fact that Appgree offers the possibility to any Host of integrating Appgree contents into its websites or mobile apps through the Appgree’s Widget. A Widget is a component created by Appgree that allows website publishers or mobile app developers to integrate Appgree in an easy way. There are three types of Widgets depending on the content to be displayed.
