Ghostly Bear Games develops video games and supporting services to provide entertainment to its customers. In the operation of these games and services we will at times interact with customers’ personal data. This policy establishes how we will handle this data, whom it may be shared with, and how customers can address any issues with how we are handling their data.
Personal Data We Collect
User Submitted Data
While interacting with our games and services, we may collect personal information through web forms or game options such as names, email addresses, or other information you choose to provide us. We store this data either on our US servers or with a partner who provides us the specific service.
If we partner with another party to provide specific services (such as an email newsletter), your data will be shared with that service. When you sign up for these services, we will share only the minimum amount of information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
Automated Data Collection
When you use our games and services, the applications and servers will collect operationally necessary data such as your IP address, time of request, application data (such as browser type) and what is being requested. This data collection is used to ensure the proper operation of the services we provide, to troubleshoot issues, and to prevent abuse of these services.
We collect information about how our games and services are used. This would include data such as features accessed, content you have engaged with, and frequency of use. Additionally this might include data about the device, operating system, or other specifiers provided by the device or your settings.
In the operation of our games, we will periodically collect data relevant to improving our games, services, and providing customers features (such as leaderboards). This data is used purely to improve our games and to provide users requested game features.
Data Sharing and Disclosure
We may share your personal data and other information with certain third parties in the following circumstances:
To assist us in developing games that players want to engage with, we will review and choose third parties to help us with software and services that will accelerate our ability to complete our products. These services will provide things such as game services, server infrastructure, mailing lists, communication tools, and marketing services.
