2. How We Collect Information
We collect some information from you when you provide it to us directly, such as via an online form or when you talk with our customer experience team. We and third parties also use certain technologies described below to collect information to deliver excellent experiences.
A. Cookies and Similar Technologies
We currently do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. We may adopt a DNT standard if one is established. In the meantime, you may opt out of certain types of tracking, including certain analytics and tailored advertising by changing your cookie settings.
We also use Analytics, Advertising, Anti-Cheat
and Anti-Fraud technologies in our products that utilize the same cookies and
similar mechanisms. These technologies are described below.
B. Analytics Technologies
We use our own game servers and internal and third party analytic technologies to collect information about how you use our products, your computer or device and the health of our products.
For instance, PlaySimple Games may collect and store data from your computer or device when you use our products. This information includes technical and related information about your computer or device and operating system (such as IP Address and device ID), information about your feature usage, gameplay and usage statistics, system interactions and peripheral hardware for purposes described in section 3, below. If you play a game offline, this data will be stored on your device and transmitted to PlaySimple when your device connects to the Internet. If you participate in online services, PlaySimple also may collect, use, store, transmit and publicly display statistical data regarding game play (including scores, rankings and accomplishments), or identify content that is created and shared by you with other players.

Many of these companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies.

Third party advertising companies may combine the information collected in the context of delivering an ad to you via our Products and Services with other information they have independently collected over time and across different websites. Many of these companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies.
Note that opting out does not mean you won't see ads; it just means that the advertising you see may be less relevant to your interests.

When our third party agents or service providers collect or receive personal information, we require that they use the data only on our behalf and for purposes consistent with this policy.

5. Where We Hold Your Information

Upon request, we will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. If your personal information changes, or if you no longer desire our Service, you may correct, update, delete inaccuracies, or delete your personal information by contacting us.

7. How We Protect Your Personal Information
Security of our players' information is a priority at PlaySimple Games, and we take a range of measures to help protect it, including encryption of sensitive financial information. Even so, no security measure is 100% perfect. This means we cannot guarantee the security of your information and do not assume any responsibility for the unauthorized use or access to your information under our control.
8. Data Retention
We retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you the Service. We will also retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Protecting children's privacy online is extremely important to PlaySimple Games. PlaySimple Games mobile products and services are intended for general audiences and do not knowingly collect any personal information from children. When users identify themselves as being children (i.e. under the age of 13 or under the minimum age in the relevant territory), consistent with applicable law we will: (1) not provide a path for them to input personal information, (2) collect certain information for limited purposes only (consistent with applicable law), (3) block or restrict the child from accessing relevant services (such as chat functionality); and/or (4) obtain consent from parents for the collection, use, and sharing of their children's personal information.
Through our mobile applications your child will be able to receive local in-app notifications, which do not collect any personal information.
Please note that if you grant consent for your child to use PlaySimple Game's online or mobile products and services, this may include such general audience communication services as email, instant messaging, and online groups, and your child will be able to communicate with, and disclose personal information to, other users of all ages.
We encourage you to talk with your children about communicating with strangers and disclosing personal information online.
Under no circumstances do we condition a child's
participation in an activity—like contests—on the child's disclosure of more
personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the
activity. On certain sites, we may not permit children to participate at all
regardless of consent.
