PRIVACY POLICY MODEL FOR ALL HAVOS APPLICATIONS

This privacy policy covers your use of this Application for mobile devices and desktops. In summary, although Havos Limited itself does not collect any personalised information about you, it's free Application versions (in common with nearly all applications using advertising to fund their further development) do use third-party advertising which can collect "cookies" as anonymised data, in order to provide more directed and personalised advertising. In the section below called "What are my opt-out rights?", we describe how you can opt out of personalised advertising for the device you are using. In addition all our Applications (free and pay) collect anonymised analytics information about how the Applications are being used, such as which features are most commonly used. This data is completely anonymous, there is no data collected that is attached to you regarding your personal use of this Application, the data is only collected at a high macro level to provide large scale usage statistics, and it provides enormous help to us in order to improve the applications.

It is important to understand that using this application implies your consent to this privacy model.

We now provide this policy in more detail.

What information does the Application obtain and how is it used?

User Provided Information

Since the Application does not require you to login or register, then Havos Limited's own software does not explicitly collect any user information in the Application. However the Application does use third party software from Google, Amazon and Apple in order to access their game systems (Google Play Game Services, Amazon Game Circle & Apple Game Center respectively), which require login if you wish to connect to their systems to view high scores and achievements. Havos Limited does not store this login information, but it may be stored by Google, Amazon or Apple.

Automatically Collected Information

In addition, the Application may collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device's advertising ID, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browsers you use, and information about the way you use the Application. This collection is not done by Havos Limited explicitly, but is collected by the 3rd party advertising and analytics services.

Does the Application collect precise real time location information of the device?

This application does not collect precise information about the location of your mobile device. On Google devices an explicit permission is required for this type of data collection, and none of our Applications ask for or require this permission.

Do third parties see and/or have access to information obtained by the Application?

As described in this privacy statement, third parties (advertising and analytics) used by Havos Limited have access to and collect this "cookie" information. Havos Limited itself does not explicitly have access to any personalised data (nor does it need or want access to that data), it is stored only on the third parties own servers, we cannot see that data or pass it on to others.

Automatic Data Collection and Advertising

We work with Google services to help us understand how the Application is being used, such as the frequency and duration of usage. For our free Applications, we work with advertisers and third party advertising networks, who would like to know how you interact with advertising provided in the Application. This helps us keep the cost of the Application free. Advertisers and advertising networks use some of the information collected by the Application, including, but not limited to, the unique identification ID of your mobile device. To protect the anonymity of this information, an encryption technology is used to ensure that these third parties can’t identify you personally. These third parties may also obtain anonymous information about the mobile websites you visit, your non-precise location information in order to help analyse and serve anonymous targeted advertising on the Application and elsewhere.

For more information regarding how Apple collect and use data, please visit: Apple Customer Privacy Policy

If you’d like to opt-out from third party use of this type of information to help serve targeted advertising, please visit the section entitled “Opt-out” below.

What are my opt-out rights?

The first three options are only relevant for the free versions of our Applications (those with advertising).

  1. If you are using a Google Android device, you can go into "Google Settings" icon on your device (this is different to the "Settings" icon), then tap "Ads" and select "Opt out of interest-based ads". This will stop all Applications on your device from showing interest-based ads, not just this Application.
  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. You can opt-out of all information collection by not using the Application.

Data Retention Policy, Managing Your Information

Havos Limited only retains e-mail addresses of customers who have provided feedback regarding the application. If you’d like us to delete this e-mail address that you have provided via the Application, please contact us at support@havos.co.uk and we will respond and remove it in a reasonable time.

Children

We do not use the Application to knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should contact us at support@havos.co.uk. We will delete such information from our files within a reasonable time.

Security

We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our Application. Please be aware that, although we endeavour to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.

Changes

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time for any reason. We will notify you of any changes to our Privacy Policy by posting the new Privacy Policy here. You are advised that continued use of the Application is deemed approval of all changes.

Your Consent

By using the Application, you are consenting to our processing of your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy now and as amended by us. Processing means using cookies on a computer/hand held device, including, but not limited to, collecting, storing, deleting, using and combining information.
