Playing our games

You are responsible for the internet connection and/or any mobile data charges that may be incurred whilst using our games. You should confirm any applicable data charges with your mobile phone operator before you play.

We have the right to amend or withdraw any of our games (in whole or in part) at any time without liability to you. This may be for the following (but not limited to) reasons: For technical difficulties experienced by us or by you, so we can improve your experience of our games, because it is no longer viable for us to continue the game or games, where we have a legal obligation, for any reason, to change or alter or discontinue a game or our games, or because we have, or have to, alter the services we provide to you.

There may be times that our games and/or services are unavailable to you for maintenance, upgrade or other technical reason. This may be on a scheduled or unscheduled basis.


Your data and how we use it

Our games store data locally on your device(s) and they also store a backup on our servers if you are playing online. We do not store any personally identifiable information either on your device(s) or online and do not require any user names, email addresses or passwords to play our games.

Our games use a unique identifier (known as a game ID) and this is used to tie your local game save to your internet game save. This allows our games to automatically restore your data in the event that your local data is removed. All connections between your device and our servers are fully encrypted.

We reserve the right to remove any dormant accounts or accounts that have had no activity for a minimum period of 90 days. At which point you will no longer have any access to your account nor any history and/or purchases associated with that account. No refund will be applicable in such event.

We use some third-parties to provide a better experience and additional content for you. These are all GDPR compliant and are as follows

Vungle

Our games provide opt-in reward ads in exchange for virtual currency. We do not pass any personally identifiable information to Vungle and therefore you will not see any targeted ads.

Facebook

We allow players to connect their games to their Facebook account. This allows players to sync their games across multiple devices. We do not request any personal information whatsoever from Facebook and the only data we receive is a token that enables our games to sync.

Google

We allow players to connect their games to their Google Play account. This allows players to sync their games across multiple devices. We do not request any personal information whatsoever from Google and the only data we receive is a token that enables our games to sync.

We use Google Analytics to track basic usage of our games. We send anonymized data to Google Analytics to be GDPR compliant. We will only share the data we hold when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request, or with our trusted services providers who work on our behalf, do not have an independent use of the information we disclose to them, and have agreed to adhere to the rules set forth in these terms.


In app purchases

Where applicable, our games allow you to purchase extra content and/or services ("Virtual goods") to enhance your gaming experience. You can only purchase virtual goods from the app store that you originally downloaded the game from. You buy virtual goods with real money and virtual goods cannot be exchanged for real money.

You agree that all purchases of virtual goods are final and that you will not be entitled to a refund after the process has been completed, subject to the policies of the app store that you make the purchase from. Virtual goods are redeemed instantly and are therefore non-returnable.

You agree to abide by the terms and conditions of the relevant app store that you make an in game purchase from. These terms and conditions are available directly from the applicable app store.

We have the right to add, remove or amend the virtual goods at any time. This will not affect any purchases of virtual goods you have already made nor the services that those virtual goods will have provided you.
