(Last update November 2015)
The option for our partners to display interest-based, or retargeted, ads (''IBA'') is enabled solely for the device IDs that have passed the age gate and have not opted out of IBA. By using our apps and not choosing one of the opt-out options, you give us consent to transfer your data as stated below.
We will pass only the device-level data to our advertising partners (for example if a device has clicked on a sports ad within our apps) and they can reuse such data for targeted advertising. We allow our partners to serve targeted third party advertisements or other content. They may attach the information gathered from your device to info gathered from other apps, websites, or via other services, and then build profiles and transfer the info to another provider. For example we pass advertising IDs to FB and they match it with your FB ID, aggregate it and delete the initial identifier. By doing so the other provider may receive or gather information about you and use the information for displaying targeted ads. Advertisers may choose their audience by location, demographics, likes, keywords, age & gender, interests, behaviors, connections and any other information FB receives or infers about users. We cooperate with two providers of IBA, Facebook and MoPub (''Third Parties''). When allowing Third Parties to conduct IBA we adhere to the DAA Principles available here http://www.digitaladvertisingalliance.org/principle/index.html.
- a) MoPub http://www.mopub.com/optout/; FB https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads
- b) Turn on “Limit Ad Tracking” on your iOS device or “Opt Out of Interest-Based Ads” on your Android device
- c) Choose “Opt Out of IBA” within the settings of our apps (where available).

To make our apps appealing to users, we must collect data logs about the usage of the app by you. But don't worry, personal data is obfuscated/deleted within the app before we receive it and we tie the data to an ID that cannot be traced back to you.
The Application might automatically send anonymized and obfuscated data log files to us that contain detailed information on your usage of the Application (e.g. data log files containing chat history, where (i) such history cannot be attributed to any individual person; and (ii) any personal details that you provide us voluntarily (e.g. personal names, addresses, numbers, places, etc.) are obfuscated/deleted within an app before they are sent to us).

Such data log files are used solely for the purpose of analysis, development and improvement of individual functions within the Application with the aim of making the Application more appealing to users. The data logs will not be disclosed to third parties. Implied but informed consent shall be deemed given to us by downloading and using the Application.
We will use such statistical data that may be connected with your device ID only for our internal purposes of developing, delivering, improving, personalizing and tailoring our products, services, content, and understanding and analyzing trends in connection with the usage of the Application, and administering the Application and customer communications.

We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or to protect our operations, users or user experience. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger or sale we may transfer any and all information (including personally identifiable information) we collect to the relevant third party.
Use of Information by our Partners
We strive to commit our Partners to using the information solely for the purposes as stated above. If they use information that might be considered as personal information, they should use it solely for the purposes of contextual advertising, but for any other purposes they should use the information solely on anonymized and aggregated basis. Notwithstanding the above, we cannot guarantee that our Partners will adhere to the contractual obligations or acceptable business practices. While we strive to protect the information provided to our Partners, we have no direct control over their use of the collected information and therefore you acknowledge that we are not liable for any third party privacy breach and that our liability for our Partner breaches is limited to the amount we are able to receive as indemnification from our Partners (legal costs exempted).
In addition, Partners may use their own tracking technologies (including and without limitation: cookies, Web beacons, HTTP cache, and local shared objects) to compile anonymous information about users of the Applications and visitors to the Websites. Partners may share anonymous information that they collect with their clients, including the date and time a banner ad was shown and the specific ad shown. We strive to ensure that this information is only disclosed to such third parties in an anonymized and aggregated manner.
Some of the Applications allow you to submit content generated in or by the Applications to third party sites like Facebook, Vkontakte, Google+, Game Center and YouTube. These submissions follow the information transfer protocols for such third parties, which are designed to enable content sharing with such third parties.
Third Party Terms and Conditions
Please note that your access to and ability to use and interact with the Applications and the Websites may be subject to certain third party terms and conditions and privacy policies, including but not limited to application stores, mobile software platforms, online gaming platforms, social networking services, statistics services providers and payment providers.

You can also request that we correct or delete information, provided that we are not required to retain such information by law or for legitimate business purposes.

INFORMATION COLLECTION RELATING TO CHILDREN
Our products and services are not directed to, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from, children under 13, however we consider ourselves to be family oriented. If we learn that we have collected personal information of a child under 13, we will take all reasonable steps to delete the information as soon as possible. If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us at http://outfit7.com/contact/.
We are conducting an age gate after the downloading of some of our apps for specific territories in order to assure the privacy and protection of younger users of our apps. If you do not pass the gate the features enabling potential collection and sharing of personally identifiable information are disabled for your device ID. For your safety, it is not possible to change your age later on. We do not store your year of birth but only the information whether your device ID passed the age gate or not.
We have decided to voluntarily implement higher child protection standards in order to preserve the family-friendly reputation of our Applications. The only personal information we collect from you for the purposes of offering our services are persistent identifiers (such as device ID, UDID, IDFA, IDFV, advertising ID, IP address) which we use solely for support for the internal operations meaning to place contextual advertisement (including frequency capping), to authenticate users of or personalize the content on Applications, to maintain or analyze the functioning of the Applications, personalize the content of the Application (such as sending push notifications), to perform network communications to protect the security or integrity of the user or the Application, to ensure legal or regulatory compliance, and to respond directly to your one-time basis or multiple times specific request.
When using the persistent identifiers we will not contact you, display behavioral advertising to you, nor do any user tracking or profiling. In addition, we strive that all of our advertising partners adhere to the same standards for the collection and usage of your personal information as we do, but we can however not be responsible if they breach the commitments they gave to us regarding the collection of information. In case of such breaches you agree that our liability is limited to the amounts we are able to receive as indemnification for the breaches from our advertising partner.
We will store the e-mails from users who subscribe to newsletters about our products and services and you may unsubscribe at any time by informing us on email@example.com. By doing so we will delete your e-mail. The e-mails will be used solely for the purpose of sending newsletters and will not be shared with any third party. In addition we have disabled newsletter subscriptions for users 13 and under. We will use reasonable efforts to inform parents about the collection practices as stated herein. Furthermore, we strive to ensure that the content of the newsletters will always be family-friendly.
We will send push notifications to users who allow us to do so, in order to inform them about our products and services and to reengage them in terms of using the Application. By clicking on the “allow” button you accept push notifications, but you may unsubscribe at any time by changing the preferences/settings on your device.

Third Party Sites
Our Applications, Websites, products and services may contain links to third party websites, products, or services. For example, the Applications may feature offers from third party advertisers or the ability to engage in transactions with such entities. Please note that while using such third party offerings, you are using sites, products, and services developed and administered by people or companies not affiliated with or controlled by us. We are not responsible for the actions of those people or companies, the content of their sites, products or services, the use of information you provide to them, or any products or services they may offer. Our link to such third parties does not constitute our sponsorship of, or affiliation with, those people or companies. Nor is such linking an endorsement of such third party’s privacy or information security policies or practices or their compliance with laws. Information collected by third parties, which may include such things as location information or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices. These other websites or services may place their own cookies or other files on your computing device, collect information or solicit personal information from you. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of third parties with which you interact.
We are not responsible or liable for your interaction with such third parties, the information requests initiated by such third parties, or the subsequent use, treatment or dissemination of information you voluntarily choose to provide to them.
Our Applications enable in-app purchases.
Although some of our Applications are free, they include in-app purchases. In-app purchases may be made only upon entering the app store password and you are responsible for maintaining the security of such password. You should be aware of the 20-minute window after the downloading of an Application, during which in-app purchases may be made without inserting an in-app store password. You should also take into account that OS 2.1 or older versions of Android mobile phones do not require entering of the app store account password to carry out in-app purchases.
Opting out of IBA:
- Via third party IBA providers
For MoPub Ads please visit http://www.mopub.com/optout/;
For FB Ads please visit https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads
- Via “Do Not Track Settings” in mobile phone
The providers of advertising services are bound to comply with “Do Not Track” settings in mobile phones, but we cannot provide any guarantees on their behalf. If you choose the opt-out option available via our apps, we will not share your device ID with advertisers for the purposes of IBA; or, if already shared, we will remove it from their services. We provide no guarantees regarding the information provided prior to opting out. Some providers may have additional opt-out mechanisms implemented.
If you turn on “Limit Ad Tracking” on your iOS device or “Opt Out of Interest-Based Ads” on your Android device, you can restore interest-based ads by turning the settings off. When you opt out, you may still see the same number of ads on your mobile device; however, these ads may be less relevant because they won’t be based on your interests. Our advertising partners may continue to serve you ads based on other non-personal information, such as ads related to the content of the application you are using.
Your iOS or Android mobile device may provide a “Limit Ad Tracking” or “Opt Out of Interest-Based Advertising” setting. When you have opted out using this setting on a device, our partners will not use information collected from that device to infer your interests, or to serve ads to that device that are targeted based on your inferred interests.
You can find the setting for your mobile device by following the directions below, or contact your device provider.
The reason for switching from device IDs to Advertising Identifier is that advertisers are able to use this identifier only for advertising and for no other purpose, while users can choose to opt out of tracking via the settings of mobile phone. Advertising Identifier is an anonymous identifier for advertising purposes which enables users to reset their identifier or opt out of interest-based ads. The parties participating in advertising are obligated to follow users’ choice for opting out of tracking according to the app store guidelines.
- iOS 7 or Higher
Go to your Settings > Select Privacy > Select Advertising > Enable the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting
- iOS 6
Go to your Settings > Select General > Select About > Select Advertising > Enable the “Limit Ads Tracking” setting
More information about the iOS setting can be found here.
For Android devices with OS 2.2 and up and Google Play Services version 4.0 and up:
Open your Google Settings app > Ads > Enable “Opt Out of Interest-Based Advertising”
- Via our apps
We are creating an opt-out option within some of our apps. You may choose it by visiting ''Info Screen'', ''Settings'' and ticking the ''Disable Interest-Based Ads''. Choosing this option will mean that you will still be served ads, but they will not be tailored to your preferences. Should you decide to opt out of advertising altogether, you may make an in-app purchase to do so, or you can delete the app.
Opting out from Tune analytics tracking
If you have not regularly updated our apps, they may include Tune's platform; this collects App Store Data, Client Generated Data, and Keyword Data, all of which is then de-identified and kept anonymous. The Platform also enables clients to view and measure data provided by third-party sources. Tune does not share end user data with third parties. Should you decide to opt out, please upgrade the app to a current version or visit www.optoutmobile.com.
