This policy will let you know:
- What information (often referred to as "data") is collected.
- 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 is collected?
Data is collected in three ways:
Data collected automatically
- Data collected automatically.
- Data you provide us.
- Data collected by our partners.
Certain data is collected automatically. This includes:
- Anonymous data about your game progress.
- Anonymous data about your device, such as device name, operating system, browser type and language.
- Mobile device identifier (advertising ID). 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 if you sign up for a Kristanix account.
Data we collect from our third-party partners
How do we use the data we collect?
- Anonymous data for analytics purposes, so we can keep improving our games.
- Demographic data (such as which country you are from).
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 games.
If any app crashes occur, we collect anonymous, non-personal device information provided automatically by your device to help understand what caused the crash.
When you opt-in to join our mailing list for the purpose of receiving our newsletter, we will use that to inform you about upcoming games and other promotions related to our games.
You may unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time. All you need to do is unsubscribe from the link in the email.
If you have purchased any ad-free versions of our games (or any puzzle/board packs), no ads are shown to you and therefore no data is collected by advertisers.
Advertisements from third-party ad networks may be displayed in the free versions of our games. 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.
Through our games, you can decline consent so that the advertisers will not be able to collect data in order to show you targeted advertisements.
The list of our ad networks privacy policies and additional opt-out instructions may be found here:
Opting out of targeted advertising
You can also opt-out of targeted-based advertising in all apps, 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 prevent mobile device identifier from being collected from all apps on your device.
Our Services may also contain APIs from other third-parties used for non-identifiable, anonymous statistical and analytical purposes. Here is a list of their privacy policies and opt-out instructions:
Access to your data, and permanent deletion of your data
You have the right to view your data, update your data, have your data deleted, object and restrict to how we use your data. If certain data is processed based on consent given by you, such consent can also be withdrawn by you at any time, for example in the game's settings.
If you wish to know what data we hold about you, if any, or have it deleted, please make out your request to us in writing at the address listed below. Please be aware that in order to protect the information in our database, we will require identification from you before releasing any information. We will respond to all requests within a reasonable timeframe.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We will not sell, trade, rent or disclose any of the personal information you provide to us for any reason. Otherwise, your personal information will only be disclosed where required by law.
Your personal information is stored offsite in a manner that reasonably protects it from misuse, loss, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure.
Our games and our website are not aimed at children under 13 years of age. We do not collect information, nor do we direct interest-based advertising to anyone under the age of 13 years.
If you believe that we have inadvertently collected information from a person under the age of 13, please contact us at the email address below and the information will be permanently deleted.
