What Information Is Collected On This Game?
“Personal Information” is information that can be used to identify an individual or allow someone to contact an individual. While your Personal Information is not required to play the Game, the Game may request Personal Information from you. We will collect this information only if you give us your explicit consent. We may collect Personal Information such as:
Game Usage Information
When you download, install and/or use our Game, we may receive anonymous information regarding how you access and use the Game (“Game Usage Information”). Such information may be collected while you are offline and transmitted to us when you next connect to the Internet whether or not you are currently logged into your internet connection from your handheld, mobile device, computer, or other gaming platform. This information includes:
An IP address is a string of numbers that is usually controlled by a user’s Internet service provider, and is automatically assigned when a user’s computer or device connects to the Internet. In some cases, we may get general geographic location information from your IP address.
Third Party Information
We may also receive information about you from third party marketplace providers, such as the iTunes’ App Store or the Google Play Store. This information includes your username and/or device ID and the fact that you made a purchase. This information does not include any sensitive or financial information.
We may receive information from third parties, like Facebook, Google or Instagram, when you use these services in connection with our products. We may also receive information about you when other players choose to share their contact lists with us.
“Cookies” are small data files sent by a website or application and stored on your computer or device at the request of that site or app. A cookie stores information related to your browser to enable us to recognize your browser on return visits to our Game and remember your preferences. Most browsers can be set to detect cookies and to let you reject them, but refusing cookies may make it difficult to use the Game. To learn more about cookies, including how to manage or delete them, look in the Tools, Help or similar section of your Web browser, or visit http://allaboutcookies.org. By allowing their children to use our Game, parents agree to the placement of cookies on their child’s computer or device.
Local shared objects, such as “Flash cookies,” may be stored on your computer or device through a media player or other software installed on your computer or device. Local shared objects operate a lot like cookies, but cannot be managed in the same way. Depending on how local shared objects are enabled on your computer or device, you may be able to manage them using software settings. For information on managing Flash cookies, visit http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/disable-local-shared-objects-flash.html. By allowing their children to use our Game, parents agree to the placement of local shared objects on their child’s computer or device.
How Is Your Information Used?
We may use the information we collect about you for administrative, analytical, research, optimization, security and other purposes including, for example:
We do not sell or rent any information collected through the Game.
To do these things, we may match Game Usage Information collected from you in different ways or at different times, and use that information along with information obtained from other sources (including third parties) such as demographic information.
Do We Share Game Usage Information With Others?
Yes. We share the Game Usage Information we collect with others who need it to provide services (whether third parties or our corporate affiliates) so we can operate or support the Game or our business. For example, we may share the information, such as unique device identifiers or other persistent identifiers and non-precise geolocation information with our analytics providers. Those providers use this information to perform analytics. Please note that this sharing is limited to anonymous Game Usage information only and we do not collect or share any of your Personal Information.
Information sharing may also happen when it is a necessary part of certain Game features, such as when you post your information to public areas on the Game where other Game users can see it.
We do not store credit card information. In order to process credit card payments, we use the services of a secure third-party credit card processor.
Children Under The Age Of 13
By law, our Game cannot condition a child’s participation in an online activity on the child’s providing more information than is reasonably necessary. If we do collect Personal Information from a child online, the law allows us to keep that information only as long as is reasonably necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the information is collected.
When we collect Personal Information from a child, we ask the child’s parent for consent before we collect it, except as permitted by law, such as where we are only using an email address to respond directly to a request from the child. If the email is collected for a one-time response, we delete it after the response is sent. If the email is collected to respond more than once to the child, we will also ask for the parent’s email, so we can let the parent know that the child has given us Personal Information and give the parent a chance to tell us to delete that Personal Information before we re-contact the child. In that case, we delete the child’s email either at the parent’s request, or, if no such request is made, when we have finished responding to the child and otherwise fulfilled the purpose for which the email was collected.
We may request the parent’s consent in any way the law allows. For example, if the child’s Personal Information will be used only by us, we may ask for the parent’s consent by email. If the child’s Personal Information will be disclosed on the Game or shared with a third party, we may verify that the person providing consent is the parent by asking for consent in connection with a credit card transaction. Parents have the option to consent to the collection and use of their children’s information without consenting to the disclosure of that information to third parties, except to the extent that disclosure of such information is a necessary part of the activity for which parental consent is given. Notice of the information collection, use and disclosure practices associated with a particular online activity will be provided to the parent when we ask for consent. Sometimes, in connection with the direct notice to the parent, we may collect the parent or child’s name from the child (for example, the child’s first name, so that the parent knows which of their children wants to sign up for an activity).
At some point, our Game may include social media and community components. Children may be able to post messages (for example, on message boards), and share ideas, creations and comments (for example, through blog commenting tools or online writing features), but these postings are moderated before they are made public. We take reasonable measures to delete Personal Information included in these submissions before they are posted.
Disclosure to Service Providers
The Personal Information and Game Usage Information we collect may be collected or accessed by our service providers (whether third parties or our corporate affiliates) who support and administer the internal operations of our Game, such as to enable registration and maintenance of accounts, to fulfill account requests, and to provide customer service. Our service providers who have access to children’s Personal Information can use that Personal Information only to do the tasks we engage them to do; they cannot use it for any other reason or for their own purposes, and we require them to agree to maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of that Personal Information. Service providers also assist us in collecting and understanding usage information. We may share non-personally identifiable usage information (including aggregate data) with others, for their own use.
While we have policies and procedures in place and take reasonable measures to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of Game Usage Information and Personal Information collected on our Game, we cannot guarantee that information will be absolutely safe from intrusion during transmission, while stored on our systems, or when otherwise in our care. Except as expressly required by applicable statute or regulation, we will have no liability for disclosure of information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission.
