Our Commitment to Protecting Your Privacy.
What is Personal Information?
Different countries, their sub-divisions (like the U.S. state of California) and transnational regions (like the European Economic Area or EEA) define “Personal Information” in many different ways. Atheer views the collection of Personal Information in the broadest terms and considers “Personal Information” as any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular person or individual.
Information We Collect and Receive and How We Collect This Information.
Atheer Service and Registration. Atheer may collect and receive Personal Information in a variety of ways and use them for different purposes.

We also collect other information required to configure, use, and provide support for the Atheer Services including your device IP address, the time you visited, and cookies activity.
