The personal information we may collect about you through the Services falls into the following general categories:
1.1. Information that you provide voluntarily
Certain parts of our Services may ask you to provide personal information voluntarily. For example, we may ask for certain information in order to register an account with us, to begin using the Applications, to subscribe to marketing communications from us, and/or to submit enquiries to us, such as:
- Your name, email address or other contact details.
- Any information you submit to our customer service team in the Applications or via email.
The personal information that you are asked to provide, and the reasons why you are asked to provide it, will be explained to you when we ask you to provide your personal information.
1.2. Information we collect automatically
When you use our Services, we may also collect certain information automatically from you and/or your device which may be considered personal information under applicable data protection laws, such as:
- Your IP address.
- Device identifiers such as your Advertising ID and Unique Device ID (UDID).
- General geographic location based on your IP address or mobile network operator.
IP addresses are collected as part of industry-standard server logs, which allow us to track down and fix issues as they arise, in which case they are deleted periodically from our systems. They are also used by third party advertisers.
"Advertising ID" means the Apple Identifier for Advertisers ("IDFA") on Apple devices, and Google Advertising Identity ("GAID") on Android devices. These are unique identifiers for mobile devices that advertisers use for interest-based advertising. They are consistent across all apps and thus allow cross-app tracking. On Apple devices, you can opt out by choosing the "limit ad tracking" option in the privacy settings. On Google Android, you can opt out by choosing the "Opt out of interest based ads". Advertising IDs are non-permanent, non-personal identifiers uniquely associated with your device. Similar technologies include tracking pixels within ads. These technologies allow companies (including marketers and advertisers) to recognize your device when you use websites and applications.
Unique Device IDs ("UDIDs") are used to recognize registered devices in order to grant access to paid features and services. They are usually sent to our servers and discarded immediately; they are only retained as part of the device registration process, and they can be removed from our systems by unregistering your devices via the "device management" interface of the Applications.
"Device identifier / information" means device type, device model, device manufacturer, device operating system and language, or other technical data like screen size, processor, or a combination of this data, available from a device for a developer to check the device's compatibility with a particular application.
Geographic information is used to automatically detect your language and to act based on laws that are specific to your Country or geographic area. It is immediately discarded and never sent to our servers. Geographic location may also be used by advertisers. We only use coarse geographic information: fine-grained, GPS-based location data is never collected.
1.3. No special categories of information
We do not request or intend to collect any "special categories of information" such as any information on health, race, religion, political opinions or philosophical beliefs, sexual preferences or orientation.
