We have zero interest in your data! We don't snoop in it or share it with anyone.
The website stores limited cookies on your computer. The cookies are not for the purposes of any tracking, but are merely for remembering your settings such as time zone, color scheme choices, MemeMaker defaults, etc. The cookies expire after a year. Of course you can clear these cookies via options in your browser or disabled them altogether. However, doing so will not allow the site to remember your preferences.
Additionally, the website stores limited session cookies on the server for up to 20 minutes in order to keep track of the number of users currently using the site at any given moment. This data is limited to the time of your last activity, the last URL you used and your IP address.
The Q Alerts Android and iOS apps do not provide us with any of your personal data. For those apps we do collect very limited information for analytics. Information collected is limited to: push notification token (the same one sent via email when you email support from within the app), theme name, sound and app name. We save this information internally for up to 3 months. Absolutely no information that can identify a user is passed in the collection of these analytics.
Some 3rd parties (such as Apple and Google) may gain access to limited non-personal data for the purpose of obtaining a push notifications key in order to send you push notifications. Ourselves and the above mentioned 3rd parties may be able to view details about what push notifications were sent to your device. We are unable to identify you with the push notifications key.
Cookies (stored on your computer)
When using the site, the following cookies are stored on your computer only for the purpose of remembering your preferences.
Server Session Variables (stored on server)
In order to count active users on the server at a given time, each web page stores what are called "Sessions" or "Session Variables". These are basically cookies that are stored on a private (not Internet accessible) folder on the server. The visitor counter counts the number of files to get the number of users. Files are automatically deleted every 20 minutes or so (generally less). The server stores the date/time of LAST_ACTIVITY, REMOTE_ADDR (your IP address), LAST_URL visited and the QS (querystring if any). None of this information can identify you directly (if we even cared to try), track you or anything else nepharious. In the event of any attacks on us or illegal activity, the IP address could be used by authorities to track down a users Internet service provider and then the provider may provide authorities the user who was assigned that IP address at a given time. All of the information stored in these "Sessions" is also written to and store in most all web server logs used by most all web servers on the Internet.
Web Server Logs
All web servers on the Internet keep server logs, unless the Administrator chooses to turn off logging for a site. Logs can be helpful in tracking performance issues, issues such as "404 file not found", and also robots and attackers.

Long story short, "You're safe". Browsers don't really have the ability to provide any juicy or personal details on anyone. The types of non-personal data provided by browsers is trivial and quite boring. No one on this end cares who you are... we've got a "show" to watch.
