Social Media (Features) and Widgets
iOS and Android Platforms
When you use any of the Hitcents games or applications on a mobile platform, we may collect and record certain information such as your unique device ID (persistent/non-persistent), hardware type, media access control (“MAC”) address, international mobile equipment identity (“IMEI”), the version of your operating system (“OS”), your device name, your email address (if you have connected to Facebook or Google+), and your location (based on your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address). This information is useful to us for troubleshooting and helps us understand usage trends.
We may collect your location based information for the purpose of providing you with the correct version of the application and so you may interact with other users of the games. We will not share this information with any third party without your permission. If you no longer wish to allow us to track or use this information, you may turn it off by changing your device settings. Please note, the application may not work properly if we are unable to tell where you are located.
In addition, we create a unique user ID to track your use of our Services. This unique user ID is stored in connection with your profile information to track the Hitcents games you are playing.
Facebook Connect, Game Center and Google+
You can log in to our Sites using sign-in services (“SN Service”) such as Facebook Connect, LinkedIn, Apple’s Game Center, or an Open ID provider. These services will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal information with us such as your name, email address, and resume to pre-populate our sign up form. Services like Facebook Connect give you the option to post information about your activities on this website to your profile page to share with others within your network.
We may collect and record information through the SN Service in accordance with the policies and terms of that SN Service. The information we collect when you connect your user account to an SN Service may include: (1) your name, (2) your SN Service user identification number and/or user name, (3) locale, city, state and country, (4) sex, (5) birth date, (6) email address, (7) profile picture or its URL and (8) the SN Service user identification numbers for your friends that are also connected to the Hitcents game(s).
If you want us to delete the data we receive from Facebook, Game Center or Google+ about you, please contact us at appsupport@Hitcents.com.
Invite a Friend
Hitcents may offer you the opportunity to invite your contacts from a SN Service (such as your Facebook friends) so that those contacts can be located in Hitcents’ games and/or you can invite them to join you in Hitcents’ games. Such contact information will be used only for the purpose of sending communications to the addressee. You or the third party may contact us at appsupport@Hitcents.com to request the removal of this information from our database to the extent Hitcents stores any of this information.
We may collect your email address when you contact our customer service group and we may use that email address to contact you about your gaming experience with Hitcents games and notify you about company news and promotions. If you no longer wish to receive certain email notifications you may opt-out at any time by following the unsubscribe link located at the bottom of each communication or by emailing us at appsupport@Hitcents.com.
We may occasionally send you push notifications through our mobile applications to send you game updates, high scores and other service related notifications that may be of importance to you. You may at any time opt-out from receiving these types of communications by changing your device settings.
Game Data Collection
Whenever you play our games, we collect data about all of your interactions with the game and with the other players inside the game via server log files. This information may be associated with your player ID, IP address or device ID for the purpose of providing you our Services and improving them. This data is stored on servers located in the United States and other countries. With your permission, we may also collect your exact location so that we are able to match you with other players in your area.
We may also acquire information from you through (1) your access and participation in message boards on the Services, (2) your participation in surveys regarding the Services or (3) your participation in a sweepstakes or contest through the Services.
We may provide you the opportunity to participate in a sweepstakes or contest through our Services. If you participate, we will request certain personal information from you. Participation in these sweepstakes and contests is voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address) and demographic information (such as zip or postal code).
We use this information to notify winners and award prizes, to monitor traffic or personalize the Services. We may use a third party service provider to conduct these sweepstakes or contests; that company is prohibited from using your users’ personal information for any other purpose.
We and our marketing and outsourcing partners, affiliates or analytics service providers use technologies such as cookies, beacons, scripts and tags to identify a user’s computer or device and to “remember” things about your visit, such as your preferences or a user name and password. Information contained in a cookie may be linked to your personal information, such as your user ID, for purposes such as improving the quality of our Services, tailoring recommendations to your interests and making the Services easier to use. You can disable cookies at any time, although you may not be able to access or use features of the Services.
We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software on your device. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data and where the application was downloaded. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any personal information you submit within the mobile application.
