Why do We collect data from the Game?

When you install and use the Game, We can collect and process some of your data for different legitimate purposes.

You will find below explanations regarding the reasons why the Developer may collect data and the legal bases the Developer relies on in each case. 

We collect data: 

  • To provide you with the services you asked for such as IP addresses, IDFAs, hashed emails

(e.g., enabling you to know your ranking score within the game)

  • Legal basis – such data processing is strictly necessary for the service(s) asked

  • To run analytics and understand how users interact with our product and services in order to continuously improve it either directly or through third-party partners.

(e.g. identifying that a feature is annoying for users or that a level is too difficult for most gamers)

  • Legal basis for first party analytics – Legitimate interest. The Developer collects user data for the purpose of its own internal analytics tools. Data is used for the sole purpose of the Developer analytics tool. This data processing is based on the legitimate interest of the Developer.

  • To serve advertising tailored to the preference and interests of our users

and allow the Developer to continue to provide free services and products

  • Legal basis – Express consent. In the countries where collecting users’ consent may be required by applicable laws and regulations, the Developer processes or shares personal data collected through the Game for personalized advertising purposes once you express your consent through the pop-up notice included in our Game.

 

For all data processing activities that rely on users’ consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time from the “settings” page in our various applications.

Please note that in the case where you withdraw your consent or where you refuse to consent in the first place, you will still be served with advertising but that may be less relevant to you as it will not be tailored to your interests.

  • Information about the device you use and your connection (user agent, type of connection, timestamp, system language, device model, screen resolution and settings, battery level, available storage space, time zone, OS)

  • Data pertaining to your activities on our applications and notably the way in which you interact with our applications (for instance, how and when you use our applications) and with the advertising served in our applications (for instance, number of ads served, potential clicks)

 

With who may your data be shared & why?

The Developer does not share your personal data with third parties without your prior consent in the countries where collecting users’ consent may be required by applicable laws and regulations.

Those partners usually collect data via their own tools (Software Development Kits or “SDK”). You will find a list of our partners implementing advertising SDKs through our applications and the privacy policies of their services that describe their practices and allow you to exercise your rights directly toward them hereafter:
