We use several user analytics programs (Google Analytics, Jetpack WordPress Plugin, Facebook Pixel, and Sumo.com) to help us understand the performance of our website. We do not store the information these services collect, nor do we sell or give it away to anyone. These services all comply with all applicable laws and if you would like your data deleted, exported, altered, or corrected, just let us know.


We use several advertising and affiliate marketing programs (specifically, but not limited to, Amazon Associates, RewardStyle, and ShareASale) to generate revenue from applesandabcs.com.

We do not have any control over whether the information is tracked or what that third party does with your information. You should read the privacy policy for that third party to be sure what they do with your information.
