Information We Collect and How We Collect It

We collect two categories of information from you: information you provide directly to us, and information we collect automatically.

1. Information about You That You Share with Us Directly

When you use our Services, through a social network or through Taihe, you can provide us information directly. We will store the information you provide us directly on our systems and use it for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

a. Account and Profile Information

Some games or parts of our Services use a registration or account set-up process where you will be asked to give us certain information, including:

●   your age or birthday;

●  your e-mail address;

●  a password;

●  other information so we can authenticate you or so we can improve our services.

We may also let you create a player profile, separate from your social networking site profile that other Taihe players can see. Your player profile will include the following information you provide us:

●      a profile photo;

●      a username(s);

●      your gender;

●      biographic details (like your age or age range);

●      the approximate location that you provide.

If you create a player profile, we will automatically collect certain information, including:

●      if you sign in through or link your social media profile, information associated with your profiles on that social network;

●      details about the apps you play; and

●      a Taihe player ID number that is created by Taihe and used to identify your profile.

Certain apps allow certain information in your Taihe player profile to be publicly accessible, including:

●      The Taihe player ID;

●      Your first and last names; and

●      Your player profile picture.

 

b. Information You Generate Using Our Communications Features

Certain of our Services allow you to communicate or share information with Taihe and with other Taihe players. These features include:

●      player forums, message boards and chat function;

●      the ability to post public comments to other players’ profiles;

●      private messaging;

●      the ability to send invitations to other players, either directly on our websites or to their e-mail accounts; and/or

●      photo or drawing sharing.

You acknowledge and expressly agree that we may access in real-time, record and/or store any of these communications, comments, photos, and drawings on our servers. We use these communications to protect the safety and well-being of our players and Taihe 's rights and property in connection with our Services; to conduct research; to operate, improve, and personalize our Services and our players’ experiences, including through analytics; and to manage and deliver contextual advertising.

c. Payment Information

If you make a purchase in our Services, such as a license to use in-app virtual currency or virtual items in a game  you play, our third party payment processor will collect the billing and financial information to process your charges. Taihe does not collect or store your financial information. However, Taihe 's payment processors may share non-financial information with us related to your purchases, like transaction information, transaction ID, the items purchased and value in order to fulfill your order.

Please note that purchases of third party credits or currencies may also be subject to those parties’ policies.

e. Customer Support Correspondence

When you contact our Customer Support team, we will collect and store the contact information you give them (generally, your name and e-mail address), information about your game play or activity on our Services, and your Taihe player and/or social network ID number. We will also store the communications you have with the Customer Service team and any information in those communications in order to provide support.

2. Information We Collect Automatically

a. Information From Social Networks (like Facebook)

If you play games published by Taihe or access any of our other Services by using a social network (such as Facebook) ID, we automatically receive certain information about you from the social network, depending upon the Taihe game you’re playing, the social network, and your friends’ and your privacy settings on that social network. For example, Taihe will automatically collect and store some or all of the following information provided by the social network:

●      your first and last name;

●      your profile picture or its URL;

●      your social network ID number, which is linked to publicly-available information like your name and profile photo;

●      public data for your friends (including their social network ID numbers);

●      information from friends who have also linked their social media account with our App;

●      the login email you provided to that social network when you registered with it;

●      the location of the devices you use to access our Services;

●      your gender;

●      your exact age and/or age range;

●      other publicly-available information on the social network; and/or

●      any other information that you or the social networks share with us.

If you access our Services from a social network, you should also read that social network’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. If you are unclear about what information a social network is sharing with us, please go to the social networks where you play our apps to find out more about their privacy settings.

b. Tracking Technologies

We, and service providers acting on our behalf, like Google Analytics, store log files and use tracking technologies such as:

●      device identifiers such as the IDFA on mobile devices and

●      cookies on our websites, which are small pieces of data transferred to your mobile device or computer that enable us to (i) recognize your computer; (ii) store your preferences and settings; (iii) understand the web pages of the Services you have visited; (iv), enhance your user experience by delivering and measuring the effectiveness of content and advertising tailored to your interests; (v) perform searches and analytics; and (vi) assist with security and administrative functions.

We and our service providers use these technologies to collect and analyze certain kinds of technical information, such as:

●      IP addresses;

●      the type of computer or mobile device you are using;

●      your operating system version and platform type;

●      your mobile device’s identifiers, such as your MAC Address, Identifier For Advertising (IDFA), and/or International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI);

●      your browser types and language;

●      the website you visited before or after visiting our Services, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, clicks and time on a page;

●      whether or not some of Taihe’S other apps are installed on your device;

●      app activity;

●      app state and the date and time of activity on our websites or apps.

We may connect this information with your social network ID (where available) or Taihe user ID.

Please note that companies delivering advertisements on our Services may also use cookies or other technologies as described below in - Third Party Advertising and Analytics, and those practices are subject to those companies’ own policies.

For more information on how to limit the types of cookies you allow, please see - Opting out of Cookies.

c. Information from Your Mobile Device

●      the name you have associated with your device;

●      your country; and

●      information about Taihe games you have on your device.

d. Information Across Devices and Applications

Sometimes, we (or our service providers) may use the information we collect -- for instance, usernames, IP addresses and unique mobile device identifiers or other IDs (like social network ID) -- to locate or try to locate the same unique users across multiple browsers or devices (such as smartphones and tablets), or work with providers that do this, in order to better tailor content and features and provide you with a seamless experience across devices. If you wish to opt out of cross device tracking for purposes of interest-based advertising, you may do so through your Android or Apple device-based settings.

How Do We Protect Your Data

We use appropriate technical and organisational measures designed to protect the personal information that we collect and process about you. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal information. Specific measures we use include that only those of our employees, who on behalf of their work are entitled to process personal information, are entitled to use a system containing personal information. Each user has a personal username and password to the system. The information is collected into databases that are protected by firewalls, passwords and other technical measures. The databases and the backup copies are in locked premises and can be accessed only by certain pre-designated persons. We also aim to minimize the personal information that we process, for example, our Games do not require you to register an account with your name and other details. Moreover, we use only advertiser identifiers and other more technical information to recognize players.

 

International Data Transfers

Our Service is global by nature and your data can therefore be transferred to anywhere in the world. Because different countries may have different data protection laws than your own country, we take steps to ensure adequate safeguards are in place to protect your data as explained in this Policy. Adequate safeguards that our partners may use include standard contractual clauses approved by EU Commission and the Privacy Shield certification in case of transfers to the USA.

 

 

How To Contact Us

If you have questions about data protection, or if you have any requests for resolving issues with your personal data, we encourage you to primarily contact us through the game so we can reply to you more quickly.
