AdoreStudio Ltd may also collect your IP address for safety and security purposes. An IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet.

Log Files

Other non-personal information collected by AdoreStudio Ltd is in the form of log files that record website activity, including how many “hits” a particular web page is getting (a.k.a., “click-through data”).

Through the use of log files, we may also collect certain demographic information such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Firefox, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using (e.g., Windows 8 or Mac OS), and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

When you purchase items via our apps (such as those you can purchase in the App Store or on Google Play) we do not collect or store any payment information from you.

AdoreStudio Ltd is committed to protecting your privacy online. To further this commitment, we have adopted an Online Privacy Policy that guides how we collect, store, and use the information collected about you online.

We will only share your data with third parties (for example, our group companies or suppliers): with your consent (including as set out in this Privacy Policy); as reasonably necessary in order to provide the Services to you (for example, by providing your Personal Information to suppliers we may use to fulfil the Services or to communicate with you); where it is necessary to carry out your instructions (for example, to process a payment instruction we must provide your Personal Information to our payment processors); where your data is on an anonymous and aggregated basis, meaning you could not be personally identified from it; when you submit information as part of a competition or otherwise interact with our social media channels (for example, by providing a testimonial about one of our Services) we may publish the information you submitted, alongside your name and home country on our website and social media channels; as we reasonably believe is permitted by law or regulation; in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms and conditions and/or any other agreement with you. We will not sell or rent your information to any third party outside of these circumstances.

You may allow our Services to interact with a third party social network or platform, which will provide data about you to us. These applications or websites are created and maintained by a third party which is not a part of, or controlled by AdoreStudio. You should ensure that you read their terms of service and privacy policies to understand how they treat your data and what data they might share with us.

You can make changes to what data a third party social network or platform shares with us, or stop our Services interacting with that social network or platform by adjusting your settings with that third party provider, however you may find you are not able to enjoy all of the same features of our Services.

The protection of your Personal Information

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We maintain appropriate technical and physical safeguards to protect your Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction or loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access, use and all other unlawful forms of processing of the data in our possession. We use the same level of skill in protecting your Personal Information as other similar games developers. However, since the internet is not a completely secure environment we cannot guarantee that information you transmit via our Games will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of any of our safeguards.

Questions and Complaints

We hope that you won’t have any complaints about us or our Services. If you are unhappy with our use of your Personal Information then please contact our customer services department by emailing support@adoregames.com You also have the right to complain to your local data protection authority if there is a problem.

This Privacy Policy is governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of England. Any dispute arising in connection with this Privacy Policy will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England unless you choose the courts of your home country. We are constantly innovating and looking for new ways to improve our Services and our games.
