Our primary objective in collecting user information is to provide and enhance the Services and to enable users to easily navigate and enjoy the Services. Processing of user data may also take place in order to provide Services best tailored for the users’ interests and enjoyment.
2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Playdog Soft only collects Personal Information to the extent necessary to fulfill one or more of its
functions and activities, and will do so only by fair and reasonable means. Generally we will collect
Personal Information directly from the individual to whom the Personal Information relates, but in
some circumstances, it may be necessary for us to collect information from a third party source.
1) Information that We Obtain Directly form You
Information we obtain directly from you generally comes from the devices and browsers you use to connect to our Services. This may include information obtained from cookies and other automated means of data collection. A 'cookie' is a small data file that sites often store on your computer's hard disk, generally to quickly identify a user's computer and to "remember" things about the user's visit, including your preferences settings such as music and sound effects on/off. The Services send cookies to your computer when you access or view content of the Services. Information contained in a cookie may be linked to your personal information for purposes such as improving the quality of our Services, tailoring recommendations to your interests, and making the Services easier to use. Although most web browsers automatically accept cookies, you can usually change your browser settings to prevent this or to notify you when you are sent a cookie. Please understand that if you decide not to accept cookies from us, this may reduce your experience when you use our Services.
We and our service providers may use these log files, tags, and tracking technologies to collect and analyze certain kinds of technical information.
Below are the types of information we may collect and per which purpose we collect them:
■ your mobile device’s Identifier For Advertising (IDFA); to provide better tailored advertisements.
■ the type of the device you are using, the type and the version of the browser you are using, your operating system and its version; to provide better troubleshooting.
■ your language and country settings, your activities and time spent in our Services; to provide better tailored gaming experience, such as setting the default game language to match your country setting, or keeping the gaming state so that you can continue playing from where you left off the last time you had been online.
2) Information that We Obtain from Third-Parties
We may collect information related to you from third-parties such as advertisers or social network services. If you play Playdog Soft’s games or access any of our other Services on connected third- party applications or connect our Services to any third-party applications, such as Facebook, Playdog Soft may collect and store information shared by the provider of the third-party application. This may include the following: ■ your first and last name; to display your name in game. If your account is set to display a nickname, that will be the name Playdog Soft will be collecting from the third-party service provider such as Facebook, and will be used as your display name in the game.
■ your profile picture or its URL; to display your photo in game. If your account is set to display a game avatar icon provided by the third-party service provider such as Facebook, that icon will be your profile picture Playdog Soft will be collecting, and will be used as your display photo.
■ your e-mail address you provided to that third-party application; to check for user account data while providing user support on tickets submitted via e-mail.
■ your birthday; to provide birthday gifts in game.
3) Customer Support Correspondence
When you contact our Customer Support Team, we will collect and store the contact information you provide them with. We will also store the communications you have with the Customer Service team and any information in those communications in order to provide support and improve the Services.
We have put in place reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure. All the user data is encrypted before it is securely stored in our game database only. All back up data stored in our game database is also encrypted. Our game database and back up data are stored inside an infrastructure only accessible through Multi-Factor Authentication. We do not disclose or share our user information to or with any outside party which includes advertising agencies. We will store your personal data for a necessary duration only. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third-parties will never be able to overcome those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe (including securing your account password) and to log out of your account after use. Also, E-mail and messaging systems are not considered secure, and we discourage you from sending us personal information through these mediums.

If Playdog Soft learns that a child has provided it with personal information, Playdog Soft will take reasonable steps to delete such information as soon as possible. Age at which a person is no longer considered a child and you must be to use our Services differs depending on what country you are in.
