So yea - we are like most other sites out there on the interwebs. When you connect to our server we get few bits of information about your connection, in order to establish such connection. That is how the internet works.
Once that connection is established, we are then "connected", and all sorts of cool things can happen. Of course, this is always limited by many various measures of security. In the case of our website, you connect to us through the use of the HTTP(S) protocol. Our site uses 2048-bit encryption for your connection to us, so the data being transfered between us is not in plain-text. We read an article once metioning how advanced lifeforms would have all communications encrypted, so..
Anyways, what happens when you are connected to us is up to you. As you browse this site, we have a bunch of features that will likely only work if you allow us to work them. Typically, these permission are set in your web browsers settings.
Permissions and Privacy
Technology And Information Exchange
ON Our Website:
Our site uses technologies that trade information with you - this is mostly done automatically, in the background of our "connection". It's the beauty of how all information technology works.During the use of our site, we may request information such as:
- IP address
- Type of Web Browser
- Operating System
- Window Height x Width
- Available Cookies
- Plus other Non-Identifiable Information (At this point, our server has already sent you our same details.)
- Game Progress
- Pages, Images, and Cached information
- Other Data Controlled by Browser Settings / User Action
In Our Games and Apps:
If you are using one of our games or apps that we have released on Google Play or the Apple Store, that means you will be installing our software on your mobile device. These games and applications have separate permissions settings. They are required to access various information on your phone in order to function. Despite the often concerning language of the permissions that these applications request, we don't really need to access ALL of your stuff, nor do we ever even consider it.Some permissions that we request may include:
- In-App purchases
- Device ID & Call Information
- Other Phone State Information
Use of Information
The server keeps an automatic log of connections. We use this information to provide the web experience that we are trying to achieve. The logged information is used for our services only. If you decide to contact us, and send personally identifiable information, such as your name or email address: we will use it only to reply to you. It will not be sold to other parties, spammed, or otherwise mis-used.
In our mobile games and applications, we use the information to allow access to content and features available through in-app purchases. We also must have access to your internal storage to save things such as your game progress, and also to reload the same information so your progress is not lost. The software uses information, such as when your phone is receiving a call, only to interrupt the game so you can answer it. This information from your phone is not logged, or transmitted to outside parties. It stays within the internal confines of the application processing.
In the case of making external requests to other services, such as to Google Play, or to the Apple store - your device ID and your personal information my be transmitted upon your request to access additional features. These transmission may happen over the internet which also requires information regarding your internet or wifi connection. The billing information you provide does not ever process in our applications, but instead through the relevant APIs of the providers.
We take the privacy of this information very seriously. We ensure it will never, ever, be abused by us - and we will take all steps necessary to ensure that the use of our website and software remain safe for you and your family at all times.
