Specific lnformation tor the Apps

Child-friendly Apps

We are proud to cali our app child-friendly based on the following:

  • We do not have any third-party advertising;
  • We do not collect or share any personal or sensitive data unless we have informed and/or asked for consent; and
  • We use parental gates for all content that could either lead to an external website oran in-app purchase.

Data Collection Limited to Non-personal Data

We do not collect personal data that includes your phone number, email address or any other personally identifiable information in the Apps. in some Apps we do collect sensitive data. This includes asking for permission to use your location, camera and bluetooth. These specific Apps are listed further down below and marked with "sensitive data collection".

Any usage statistics are anonymous and there is no account sign-up process in the Apps. For the non-personal data that is collected, we use trusted third-party services such as Flurry Analytics, Unity, One Signal and Firebase. They store the data securely and do not share it with anyone else. We are using the restricted version of their analytics product designed specifically for use with Apps for children, meaning that the anonymous data created from the Apps is not used anywhere else in their system, it's only for us to improve the Apps.

We collect the following information:

  • What device you are using and which version of the operating system;
  • Your country, to help us choose which languages to add to the app;
  • Crash reports, telling us where in the app it crashed and what the problem might be;
  • lnformation on your user patterns, such as how long the app was used for, how many times it has been opened and what you do or click while using it so we know what to improve/do more of;
  • Which screens/characters/features/games are most popular.

Why We Collect lnformation inside the Apps?

Anonymous usage statistics, also called analytics, help us improve an app once it has been released. lf we had no analytics, we would have no idea if anyone is using our apps, if they are getting stuck on certain screens or if the app crashes.

Children

We do not purposely collect any personal data from children. lf you believe we have mistakenly collected such information, please contact us so we can resolve the issue.
