1. Personal Information Collected by Havos (not including third party services)

Havos itself collects very little personal information.

Those Havos Services offering coins within the Service for purchase of digital assets, such as games, gaming packs and hints, do connect to a central Havos administered server. The server creates a random anonymised username and password (which can be seen in the Service), not in anyway connected to Your real name or identity. You have the ability in the Service to change this username and password to one of Your choosing. This login is used to allow Havos to store the following information:

Our Service can also collect the following information:

This list includes only the data collected and stored by Havos. Other kinds of data may be collected by third party services Havos uses. These are discussed in a later section of this privacy notice.

Note that Havos has no information or knowledge of the actual identity of You, the user of this Service. Our Service do NOT have access to or stores Your real first or last names or e-mail addresses, only the language and country You have set in the Service.

  • 9. Cookies

    Cookies are files with a small amount of data that are commonly used as anonymous unique identifiers. These are sent to Your browser from the websites that You visit and are stored on Your device's internal memory.

    This Service does not use these “cookies” explicitly. However, the Service may use third party code and libraries that use “cookies” to collect information and improve their services. You have the option to either accept or refuse these cookies and know when a cookie is being sent to Your device.

    10. Opt-out rights (All Customers)

    The first three options are only relevant for those Services which display advertizing.

    1. If You are using a Google Android device, You can go into "Settings" icon on Your device, then tap the "Google Section", then tap "Ads" and select "Opt out of interest-based ads". Here You can also reset Your advertising identifier, which means all previously stored advertising relevant information will no longer be applicable to Your device.
    2. On an Apple device (iPad, iPhone, iPod) You can go into "Settings", and then "Privacy" and then "Advertising" and select the option "Limit Ad Tracking". Here You can also reset Your advertising identifier, which means all previously stored advertising relevant information will no longer be applicable to Your device.
    3. On an Amazon device (typically a Kindle), You can log into Your Amazon account and go to the "Amazon Advertising Preferences", and from here You can choose to not allow personalised ads.
    4. If You are using a Google Android device, You can choose not to login to Google Play (if applicable for that Service), i.e. You can opt out of sharing high score and achievement data to the Google Play centralized server.
    5. You can opt-out of all data collection by not using this Service.

    11. GDPR: EU Consent Management and additional Opt-out on some of our Services (EEA Users only)

    In order to be fully GDPR compliant, Havos mobile applications all display a consent notice to all EEA customers when ads are first displayed on first launch of the application. This notice may additionally also be shown at later stages if there are changes relevant to inform You about, such as a change to the list of Ad networks used to display in-app advertizing. The consent notice informs EEA users of what personal data is collected by this Service, and You will have one or two options (depending on the Service you are using):

    Two Options

    Some of our Services provide You with the option to accept the use of Your personal data for targeted advertizing and another option not to provide personal data for targeted advertizing purposes. If You chose the second option, then advertizing services are not entitled to store and use personal data for the purposes of targeted advertizing. In addition You have the ability to change Your consent decision at any time by going into the Service's "Settings" and selecting "Privacy Settings". This will take You to a screen where You can change Your consent decision. Please however appreciate that Havos is only able to provide our Services for free by funding the development largely through in-app advertizing. The funds we earn through this advertizing are considerably better when permission is granted to provide personal data for targeted advertizing purposes. It is also very important to note that that refusing consent does NOT stop Your personal data being collected for all non advertizing related purposes listed above in this policy. If You do not wish any of Your personal data to be collected for ANY purpose, then you must stop using this service.

    One Option

    Some of our Services provide only the option to consent to use Your personal data for the purposes of targeted advertizing in order to continue using the Service. If You do not wish to provide this consent You must immediately stop using the service.

    12. Your Consent

    By using the Service, You are consenting to our processing of Your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy now and as amended by us.

    13. Changes to This Privacy Policy

    We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. Thus, You are advised to review this page periodically for any changes. We will notify You of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page. You are advised that continued use of the Service is deemed approval of all changes.
