It also applies to our Marketing and Advertising activities on all platforms and other services we may provide to you from time to time.

1. Information Collection 

Our main goals in collecting and using information are to provide and improve the Service, to administer and assist you in administering your Account on the Service, and to provide you with a better experience with the Service.

The personal information we may collect about you through the Services falls into the following categories:

1.1 Voluntarily information provided by user

Certain sections of our Services may ask you to provide personal information voluntarily. For example, we may ask for specific information to begin playing Games, 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 game 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 Automatic information collected

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 service communications such as in-game chats and messages with other players.

  • Data and analytics about your use of our Services for example in-game play progress,

    levels, games played, session length, preferred settings, which in-game adverts you may have viewed, in-game preferences or just game preferences, which friends you connect with, the means by which you were referred to our Services

  • your device type and operating system that you use

We may share aggregate or anonymous information about you with advertisers, publishers, sponsors and other third parties.

1.3 Special categories of information 

We do not request or intend to collect any “special categories of information” such as any information on race, religion, health, political opinions or philosophical beliefs, sexual orientation or preferences. Please be cautious when sharing such information about yourself or others in our forums.

1.4 Social Media

If you use one of our applications and connect to your Facebook account or Gmail within such application, you will be providing us with basic account information i.e., user ID, name, email, profile picture URL. In addition, we will cache data we receive from the Facebook APIs to improve our user experience.

1.6 Offer wall

We may display an “offer wall” in our applications that is hosted by an offer wall provider. The offer wall allows third party advertisers to provide virtual currency to users in exchange for interacting with an advertisement or for completing a marketing offer that may include signing up for an account with one of those advertisers. These are not offers made by Kroy Games. These offers may be displayed to you based on certain technical information, such as your geographic area or anonymous demographic information. After clicking on one of these advertisements, you will no longer be on a site hosted by Kroy Games. To properly credit user accounts and to prevent fraud, a unique identifier, will be shared with the offer wall provider.

3. Marketing 

Unless you opt out as explained below, we and our third-party partners use information collected about you to send you marketing communications about other games and related Services based on your interests. For instance, we may send emails, serve ads within our Services or place ads on third party websites, apps and Internet-connected devices.

4. Advertising 

Our games may include advertising for third party products and services. By accepting this Privacy Policy and downloading or continuing to play our games or use our Services, and unless you opt of interested-based advertising as explained in this section, you consent to us and our advertising partners collecting and using information about you to improve advertising, targeting and measurement systems so that we can show you relevant third-party ads in our games.

5. Cookies and similar technologies

We collect information about your device and how you use our games including cookies and similar technologies. This section describes our use of these technologies and how you can manage your preferences.

Ad identifiers, cookies and similar technologies are used to provide our Services to you and in order to collect data from your device. These technologies allow us and our third-party advertising partners to:

      - recognize you and your device

      - provide internet-based advertising to you

      - allow our Services to interact with third party social network or platform (where you

      have chosen to allow such interactions)

     - allow us to understand how you interact with our websites (for instance, where we use

      cookies such as in the Google Analytics cookie on our Websites)

     - allow our payment processors to process your payment instructions, and

     - enable us and third parties to provide you with more customized services, for example

      to provide our Services in the correct language.

 

5.1 How do ad identifiers, cookies and similar technologies work?

Ad identifiers are non-permanent, non-personal identifiers such as the Android advertisingID and/or Apple’s ID for advertising (the IDFA), which are 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. 

    

Cookies are small text files that are stored by your browser on your desktop computer or mobile device. You can withdraw your consent to cookies by updating within your browser.

5.2 How to adjust your preferences for your interest-based advertising?

You can choose to prevent your device’s ad identifier being used for interest-based advertising, or you can reset your device’s ad identifier, by changing the settings of your device. Settings usually vary from device to device, but you will usually find the ad identifier settings under “privacy” or “ads” in your device’s settings.

If you choose to adjust your preferences in order to prevent these technologies, you may find out that you cannot enjoy the full use of our services.

Note that adjusting your preferences as described in this section does not mean you will no longer receive adverts, it only means the adverts you do see will be less relevant to your-interests. We will also still use your device’s ad identifier to serve you with ads, for instance, we may use this for frequency capping (meaning, to control the maximum number of times you see the same ad from us).

 6. Legal basis for data processing 

Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where (i) we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, (ii) the processing is in our legitimate interests and not superseded by your rights, or (iii) we have your consent to do so.

(a) Under our terms of service, “performance of contract” as a legal basis for processing your information refers to when we make the Game and Services available to you, provide customer support, integrate Games with technology and distribution platforms such as Apple iOS and Google Android, and inform you of service-related changes and Game progress.

 

(b) We process your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests for example when we provide you the Game and Game events, serve interest based advertisements to you (both in-game and on third-party properties), carry out marketing, keep our games secure, for engineering purposes, analyzing the users’ behavior across our Games, moderating chat discussion.

 

(c) We have a “legal obligation” to process your personal data when complying with a legal obligation, such as the preventing a crime or fraud or maintaining tax records.

 

(d) If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information). 

If you have questions about, or require, further information concerning the legal basis for collecting and using your personal information, please contact us using the contact information provided in the " Contact Us" section below.

We may share your personal information with third parties in the following circumstances:

Employees, Third-Party Processors and Third-Party Service Providers. 

We disclose your personal information to our employees, contractors, affiliates, distributors, dealers, vendors and suppliers (“Service Providers”) who provide certain services to us or on our behalf, such as operating and supporting the Services, analyzing data, or performing marketing or consulting services. These Service Providers will only have access to the personal information needed to perform these limited functions on our behalf. 

Designated Countries: Pursuant to the Data Protection Laws, we process the personal information of users located in the Designated Countries based on our contract with you.

To the extent permitted by law, we will disclose your personal information if:

Required to do so by law, or in response to a subpoena or court order or similar request from judicial authority, law enforcement authorities or other competent public authorities. 

We believe, in our sole discretion, that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect against fraud, to protect the property or other rights of us or other users, third parties or the public at large; or

We believe that you have abused the Services by using it to attack our systems or to gain unauthorized access to our system, to engage in spamming or otherwise to violate applicable laws.

8. Security 

Kroy Games takes reasonable measures to protect your information from unauthorized access or against loss, misuse or alteration by third parties.

Although we make good faith efforts to store the information collected on the Service in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of that information during its transmission or its storage on our systems. Further, while we attempt to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally obtaining access to this information. We do not warrant or represent that your Account or any of Your Information will be protected against, loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties.

 

9. International data transfers 

Your information may be transferred to and processed in countries other than the country of which you are a resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different from the laws of your country. 

Specifically, our Game servers are currently located in the United States, and our business members, and third-party service providers operate around the world. This means that when we collect your personal information we may process it in any of these countries. However, we ensure appropriate safeguards are in place so that your personal information will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Notice. 

10. Data retention 

We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so. For example, to provide you with a Service you have requested, or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements. For example, we periodically de-identify unused Game accounts and regularly review and de-identify unnecessary personal information.

 

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or de-identify it, or, if this is not possible – for example, because your personal information has been stored on a backup server – then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
