Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our website, apver.com, and other websites we power (the “Site”) are visited and by how many people. Apver Marketplace cookies do not collect Personal Information.

You may opt out of advertiser cookies and continue to use our Service.

Apver Marketplace uses analytics software to better understand who is using our Service, and how people are using it. Analytics software uses cookies to collect and store anonymous information such as time of visit, pages visited, time spent on each page of the Site, IP address and type of operating system used.
