This page presents terms of service for all of our free apps as well as their privacy policies – for paid ones – the ads section is irrelevant but still the analytics and app store portion should be taken into account.
Playground does not store, nor sell your personal information (e.g. name, phone, email, address). On the other hand – there are some third parties services we do use to monetize and monitor our business and they have access to information you provide to them as per their policies (e.g. Google, Amazon, Flurry ,Fabric, Unity and Facebook) – read further for more details. They are all “big players” in mobile market and its really really hard to avoid their data capture anyhow nowadays. What they tend to do is to identify the device (via a unique id they store on it or access on it) and then link any other other data they have at their disposal on their end.
What we do capture and store offline are anonymous usage stats (e.g. what melodies are played most in the piano app, what are the most beloved coloring pages and what colors are most popular in a coloring app etc). We use this data to improve apps and monitor their performance – but there is no information that can identify its source personally – its just a report like: “someone has selected ‘happy birthday’ in little piano” so we can learn the usage patterns and improve app / service.
As for the terms of service listed below – we do what we can to make the apps as error-free as possible – yet you are on your own risk and the apps + this site is provided on “as-is” basis. Our total liability shall in no event exceed the total of payments we received from you or 250 PLN.
Finally – for the kids usage – all the apps should be enjoyed under direct supervision of a caregiver (i.e. parent).
See below for more info.
While Playground Apps do not store any of your personal information, due to usage of external libraries you should be aware that by using our apps you are subject to the following:
“Free apps have ads, ads have privacy policies”
Google does cooperate with a massive amount of advertising partners please have a look at this list and relevant privacy policies https://support.google.com/admob/answer/9012903
Most of our games are created with Unity – an awesome game dev software. In result of that you may also have a look at https://unity3d.com/legal/gdpr for more details. Keep in mind that we currently do not use Unity Ads / just their analytics package.
“Paid apps have receipts, receipts have some PI data on them”
When you make a purchase in our app we learn some things about you (e.g. country and postal code for purchases on Google Play). We do not use this data for any other purposes than tax related.
“We use Analytic Services, they have their own policies”
Most of our apps are also using various Analytic frameworks like Flurry, Google, Game Analytics, Fabric, Unity or Facebook Analytic for usage tracking and tracking events within the game (e.g. levels achieved, images picked most often). Some also capture app crashes to let us fix the bugs without user reports – based on automated report. With that you are subject to their relevant privacy policies. We tend to use only well known players in that area (used by thousands of apps) to make sure fair treatment of our users.
For all of the above – Playground do not store results offline, do not sell, distribute them – they remain in the system of record by Google, Admob, Amazon, Flurry. Fabric, Corona, Unity, Facebook, etc..
Net – we believe there is no harm done to your privacy – other than by above mentioned policies owned by relevant external parties. No offline storage of PI outside of their services. No sale of any data.
