Purpose and Scope

This Policy describes how Breathing Bytes Limited ("BBL", "us," or "we") collects, uses, stores, manages and discloses information, including personal information, that our users ("you" or "users") provide or we collect in connection with our websites at www.orbsofeternity.com, www.breathingbytes.com (the "Site") or any Breathing Bytes Limited games (including but not limited to Orbs of Eternity and Orbs of Eternity Free) or other applications or services available on other websites or other third party sources (collectively, the "Service"). Personal information may include, for example, your name, your device type, the version of the operating system that runs on your device, your address, your email address, etc.

This Policy applies only to information collected or received by BBL through your use of the Service. Any link to the sites or any third party does not imply that BBL is affiliate with or sponsors that third party. BBL is not responsible for the actions, products or services of any third party, the content of any third party site, or the use or disclosure of any information you provide to any third party.

Information Collected and How it is Used

iOS Platforms

BBL automatically collects and records certain information when you access or use a BBL game or application. This information may include the following: your identifier for advertising ("IDFA"), your geographic location (based on your Internet Protocol ("IP") address), the version of your operating system ("OS"), your device type (e.g. iPad 2), your in-game activity (including but limited to actions taken in the game, the order of those actions, your achievements, your scores, the amount of time you have spent on a certain part of the game, the in-app purchases you've made, etc.) and so called crash-logs (if one of our games or applications crashes due to an error, we might be able to track and correct that error more easily using the corresponding crash-log). To collect, record and analyze the aforementioned information BBL may integrate its applications and games with third party software development kits ("SDKs"), including but not limited to Fiksu's, Facebook's and Flurry's SDKs and use the services provided by these 3rd parties and their SDKs. These third parties may also have access to your personal information in connection with the provision of their services, but they will not be permitted to use such information, other than in an anonymous, aggregated form.

We may use the aforementioned information to understand usage trends, improve the Service and for help with tracking and correcting errors. We also use (and may provide to third party analytics providers as described in this document) country-level geographic location information to customize the user experience. We may also give you the opportunity to opt-in to location-based services, which utilize a device's GPS coordinates. You may opt-out of these location services via the settings on your device.

Apple Inc.'s App Store

BBL provides applications and/or games via a third party marketplace: Apple's App Store. This marketplace may collect information about you or receive information from us in the course of providing or analyzing their services. BBL is not responsible for this marketplace, and is not responsible for the actions of Apple Inc. You should review Apple Inc.'s terms of service and privacy policies, which are separate from BBL's.

Push Notifications and Local Notifications

BBL may, with your consent, send push notifications to your mobile device to provide game updates and other relevant messages. You can manage push notifications from your device's settings page for the relevant game.

BBL may also send local notifications to your mobile device to provide application or game updates and other relevant information. You can manage push notifications from your device's settings page for the relevant game.

Facebook Login and Twitter

You may be able to use Facebook Login or Twitter to sign into the games or applications of BBL and authenticate against Facebook or Twitter. If you do so, BBL may collect some of the information that is visible via your Facebook or Twitter account. That information may include: your name, your gender, your date of birth, your Facebook or Twitter ID, whether you have liked the Facebook Page Orbs of Eternity, and a list of your Facebook friends. This information may be used in social features, which may include connecting you to other users, friend-to-friend interaction, chat or messaging functionality, public leaderboards, head-to-head competition and other similar features. This information may be used as well to further clarify the target group of the Service.

You may use Facebook to like the Facebook page(s) which are part of the Service in which case the fact that you have liked our Facebook page and the information publicly available on your Facebook page will be accessible to us. We may use this information to further clarify the target group of our Services. Please refer to Facebook's privacy policy for more information.

The games and applications of BBL may post your achievements to your Facebook and/or Twitter wall provided that you grant consent to do so. Your consent will be asked in the corresponding game or application before the first automatic post. You may manually post your achieved times, scores or other achievements using the UI of the games or applications of BBL.

The Service may allow you to send invites to your Facebook friends. The Service won't send an invite automatically to anyone; you have to initiate the process manually. The Service may record the fact that you have invited someone to the Service, because invitations (if allowed) may be remunerated with in-game gifts.

We may use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site or the Service and we may improve the Site or the Service based on this analysis. BBL may use 3rd party tools and services such as Google Analytics and Hostmonster to perform the actions mentioned in this section. These third parties may also have access to your personal information in connection with the provision of their services, but they will not be permitted to use such information, other than in an anonymous, aggregated form.

Integration with Ad Networks

As a result, these companies will be able to recognize your computer when they send you an advertisement. These advertisers may use information about your visits to our Service in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you.
