Tracking Technologies and Third Party Services

We, our partners, affiliates, or analytics service providers use technologies such as cookies, scripts, beacons, and tags to identify a user's computer or device as well as to track and store data about his visit like his preferences or a user name and password.

This is done to improve the quality of our Services, tailor recommendations to your interests and making the Service easier to use. Cookies can be disabled at any time, but you may lose access to certain features of the Service.

Our services may contain third party tracking tools from our service providers, examples of which include Game Analytics or PlayFab. Such third parties may use cookies, SDKs, and APIs in our services to collect and analyze user information, including information such as your device identifier, MAC address, IMEI, geo-location information (country specific), and IP address to provide their services under their respective privacy policies. We use mobile analytics software in order to better understand the functionality of our Mobile Software on your device.

We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any personal information you submit within the mobile application.

Since we do not have access or control over third parties, our privacy policy does not cover the use of tools from third parties.
