We may use your friends' data to let you know what your friends are doing on our Service, and to let your friends know what you are doing on the Service. The data we receive is dependent upon your privacy settings with the social network, and we will not post information about you on third party social media sites without your consent. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to our website or Service.
Affiliated Marketing and Publishing Partners
When other companies work with DuoPeak to utilize our services as a publishing and marketing agency, we receive a pre-determined set of non-identifiable data from them to inform business decisions regarding the products and services we have agreed to publish and market on their behalf. Data we may receive from these affiliates may include:
Address Book Information
With your permission, DuoPeak may access the contact list available on your mobile device or in your email accounts in order to locate your friends and contacts on the Service, and to invite your friends and contacts to connect with our Service. When you invite your friends to join the Service, we will include your name and photo to let them know that you are the person extending the invitation. After sending these invitations, we may also send reminder emails to your invitees on your behalf. We will store these contacts for the purpose of alerting you when your contacts join a DuoPeak service at a later time so that you may connect with them on the Service, and to suggest friends and connections to other members of DuoPeak products.
We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service, as well as to communicate directly with you, such as to send you email messages and push notifications, and permit you to communicate with others on the Service or on social media or invite others to join the Service. We may combine information internally across different Service offerings or games to enhance your experience with our Service.
For example, we may identify a friend you may know from one service to suggest that you engage with that friend on another service, and we may let your friends on one service know about your activities on another service. For example, we may send an email to your friends on [game] to let them know that you're active on [game], and we may include your profile picture in the email so that your friends recognize you. We may also use information about your activities on the Service to provide personalized content, including targeted content and advertising. We may also send you Service-related emails or messages (e.g., account verification, account status, changes or updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). For more information about your communication preferences, see "Your Choices Regarding Your Information" below.
To provide our games, websites and interest-based advertising, we use ad identifiers, cookies and similar technologies. This section describes our use of these technologies and how you can manage your preferences.
How do ad identifiers, cookies, and similar technologies work?
Ad identifiers are non-permanent identifiers such as the Android advertising ID and/or Apple’s ID for advertising (the ‘IDFA’), which are uniquely associated with your device. Similar technologies include tracking pixels within ads. Cookies are small text files that are stored by your browser on your desktop computer or mobile device.
When you access the Service, we collect certain technical information in order to (i) analyze the usage of our sites and Service; (ii) provide a more personalized experience; and (iii) manage advertising. We and service providers acting on our behalf, such as Google Analytics, will use Log Files and other tracking technologies to collect and analyze certain types of technical information over time and across different websites following your use of the Service, including cookies, WiFi information, IP addresses, geo-location, device type, device identifiers, browser types, browser language, referral and exit pages, and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, Service state and the date and time of activity on our Services, and other similar information. In some cases, we will associate this information with your user ID number for our internal use.
Do Not Track Disclosure
We also employ other technologies including (i) web beacons, which allow us to know if a certain page was visited or whether an e-mail was opened; (ii) tracking pixels, which allow us to advertise more efficiently by excluding our current users from certain promotional messages, identifying the source of a new installation or delivering ads to you on other websites; and (iii) local shared objects also known as flash cookies, which help us to prevent fraud, remember your in-Service preferences and speed up load times.
How to adjust your preferences for interest-based advertising
You can choose to prevent your device’s ad identifier being used for interest-based advertising, or you can reset your device’s ad identifier, by changing the settings of your device. Settings vary from device to device but you will usually find the ad identifier settings under “privacy” or “ads” in your device’s settings.
The NAI (Network Advertising Initiative) allows for the central opting out of all its members’ cookies from a single opt-out page. If you prefer not to receive relevant advertising on web pages, please visit the following link: networkadvertising.org/choices/. If you delete your cookies, use a different browser or buy a new computer, you will need to renew your opt-out choice.
