When you use one of our Apps, some information is automatically collected. For example, we collect a unique identifier for the device on which you install an App (“DID”, which may be your Apple Game Center ID (if you have signed up to Game Center and we have access to that ID)) and develop a profile about you keyed to that DID. We may store your DID with your contact information (like your email address) when you contact us for support, but otherwise we do not associate your DID with Personal Data we collect about you. Our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) also collect information from you, including your browser type, device type, operating system, application software, Internet Protocol (IP) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), MAC address, Open Device Identification Number (ODIN), domain name, date/time stamps for your use of the App, and your DID.
Our Apps may also allow you to make “in-App” purchases. If you make an “in-App” purchase we will automatically collect information related to your purchase, or may receive such information from the platform provider (e.g. Apple or Google), including the item purchased, the name of the game you are playing, billing information and other information about your purchase. Our Apps may also automatically receive age information, including date of birth, from the platform provider or which is associated with your DID.
