This policy will let you know:
What information (often referred to as "data") is collected from you.
How your information is used.
With whom your information may be shared.
How you can access, update, or delete your information.
We will comply with all relevant and applicable legislative requirements, and, in the event of any inconsistency, the legislative requirements will override the provisions of this document.
What data do we collect?
We collect data in three ways:
Data collected automatically.
Data you provide us.
Data collected by our partners.
Certain data is collected automatically. This includes:
Data about your game/app progress.
Data about your device, such as device name, operating system, browser type and language.
Data about your use of our Services, such as gameplay data and your interactions with other players inside the Services.
Your IP addresses and mobile device identifiers (such as your device ID, advertising ID, MAC address, IMEI). Please note, there are ways to prevent this, which are outlined in the advertising/third-party lists below.
Data you provide us
We collect and store your email when you sign up for our newsletter, or where you specifically allow our apps to collect your player name and your email. We will also keep your contact details if you contact us so that we can reply to you.
Data we collect from our third-party partners
To operate and manage our Services we need to use third-party service providers from time to time. A list of those parties can be found in this privacy policies. The type of information we might collect from them includes:
Data we receive if you link a third-party tool with the Services (such as login using your Facebook or Google account).
Demographic data (such as to determine the coarse location of your IP address).
Data from platforms that the games run on (such as to verify payment).
Data for advertising and analytics purposes, so we can keep improving our games.
How do we use the data we collect?
Data collected, personal or non-personal, will always be treated securely and in accordance with this document, and any applicable legislation. We may analyze, profile and segment all collected data in anonymized form, to improve our apps.
If any app crashes occur, we collect non-personal device information provided automatically by your device to help understand what caused the crash.
We never process or store sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, tax IDs or any other similar information about you. Such information is securely collected by app stores (Apple iTunes, Google Play, Amazon App Store etc.) if you purchase products from us, but we do not have access to this sensitive information at all.
Personal Information is information that identifies you as an individual. This is only collected by us if you submit it to us directly.

You may unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time. All you need to do is unsubscribe from the link in the email, or let us know in writing that you want to be removed.
Some of our apps contain third-party advertising. We may occasionally promote other products of our own withing apps. All reasonable endeavours are used to ensure that these ad networks comply with all applicable legislation in the provision of their services towards us.
We may occasionally cross-promote the products of other affilated developers that offer similar products and share similar values as expressed on their own published privacy policies.
We take great care in selecting advertising partners. We do not work with companies delivering ads of inappropriate content. As we do not have direct control of which ads are shown in our apps at any given moment, we encourage you to contact us if you find ads in our apps that violate this policy, and report those ads by clicking on the "?", "i" or "ad" icon that's usually in the corner of the ad.

Opting out of targeted advertising
You can also opt-out of targeted-based advertising on mobile applications by checking the privacy settings of your Android or iOS device and selecting "limit ad tracking" (Apple iOS) or "opt-out of interest-based ads" (Android). This will also prevent mobile device identifiers from being collected.
Collection of other non-personal information
Some non-personal information may be gathered while you use our games. Non-personal information is general, non-identifiable and anonymous information that is gathered for statistical, analytical and research purposes such as the improvement of our games (for example, bug fixes).
