GOOFY GAMER LLC PRIVACY POLICY
Last updated: February 17, 2021 

This Privacy Policy explains who we are, how we collect, use and disclose personal information about you. The Services are also governed by the Terms of Service.

Goofy Gamer LLC, DBA Goofy Gamer Games (“us, “we”, or “our”) operates www.goofygamergames.com and www.goofygamer.io (“Website”). 

This Privacy Policy applies to personal information we collect about you through our games and mobile apps ("Games"), and our Website (collectively “Services”). Any and all information we collect through our Services will be subject to this Privacy Policy, as amended from time to time. We encourage you to check this Privacy Policy periodically.

1. WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES GOOFY GAMER LLC COLLECT?

Through our Services, we collect the following information:

1.1. Information you provide voluntarily

Certain parts of our Services may ask you to provide personal information. For example, we may ask for your name, email address or other contact details in order to register an account with us, to begin playing Games, to subscribe to marketing communications from us, and/or to submit enquiries to us via our Games or through email.

1.2 Information we collect automatically

When you use our Services, we may automatically collect certain information from you and/or your device which may be considered personal information under data protection laws, such as:

  • Your Service communications (e.g. in-game chats and messages with other players)

  • Data and analytics about your use of our Services (e.g. in-game play progress, levels, games played, session length, preferred settings, which in-game adverts you may have viewed, in-game preferences or just game preferences, which friends you connect with, the means by which you were referred to our Services, etc.)

  • Your IP address and device identifiers such as your Advertising ID and Device ID numbers 

  • Your device type and the operating system you’re using

  • General geographic location (e.g. country or city location) based on your IP address

  • GPS location, with your consent

“Advertising ID” means the Apple Identifier for Advertisers (“IDFA”) on Apple, and Google Advertising Identity (“GAID”). These are unique identifiers for mobile devices that advertisers use for interest-based advertising. They are consistent across all apps and thus allow cross-app tracking. On Apple, you can opt out by choosing the “limit ad tracking” option in the privacy settings. On Google Android, you can opt out by choosing the “Opt out of interest based ads.” Advertising IDs are non-permanent, non-personal identifiers uniquely associated with your device. Similar technologies include tracking pixels within ads. These technologies allow companies (including marketers and advertisers) to recognize your device when you use websites and applications.

“Device identifier / information” means device type, device model, device manufacturer, device operating system and language, or other technical data like screen size, processor, or a combination of this data, available from a device for a developer to check the device’s compatibility with a particular application. 

Some of this information may be collected using cookies and/or similar technologies (such as "software development kits, or “SDKs”), as explained in the “Cookies and similar tracking technology in websites” section below. 

1.3 Information we obtain from third party sources

(a) Information from social media platforms. You may choose to connect to our Services via your social media account. The exact information we receive from you will depend on your social media privacy settings, but it will typically include your basic public profile information, such as:

  • your username 

  • profile picture

  • age range

  • gender

  • your friends playing the same Game

Typical uses include updating game progress on multiple devices you may own so that you can continue your progress using multiple devices. In addition, we may show your Facebook friends in the Game and show your public Facebook profile name and picture in Game leaderboards and in your Game profile.

(b) Third party service providers. We may receive personal information about you from third-party sources. We may get your personal information, for example, when you installed our Game or when, prior to installation, you click on an advertisement for the Game (see section 4.2 below for further detail).

(c) Advertising partners. From time to time, we may also receive personal information about you from other third-party sources. For example, if you clicked on an advertisement directing you to one of our Services (such as an ad for one of our Games in another publisher’s game), we will be provided with information about which ad network and advertising campaign the install originated from (See also "Advertising" below).

2. WHAT ABOUT SENSITIVE INFORMATION?

Sensitive information includes information about such things as an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a professional body, criminal records or health information.

We will not attempt to obtain nor record any sensitive information.

5. COOKIES AND SIMILAR TRACKING TECHNOLOGY IN WEBSITES

Our Services may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags, local shared objects, hardware-based device identifiers, flash cookies, operating system-based identifiers, clear GIFs and web beacons.

Cookies: A “cookie” is a small file your browsers stores when told to do so by a website. Typically, websites place a number of different cookies on an end-user’s device. Some are “First-party” cookies,’ i.e. from the website itself, and others are “Third-party” cookies, meaning they belong to advertising and analytics entities or social networks. Cookies are personal information.
