The data we collect
The following details the data we collect, how long we retain the data (at maximum), and why we collect it. In addition to the retention periods mentioned below, your data may survive in backups for up to 90 additional days.
When we say that we gather data for "Analytics", we mean that the data is used for statistical purposes to understand player behaviour, so that we can make informed choices when improving the Service and future products and services. Analytics data is primarily processed in aggregated form so that data from an individual user cannot be distinguished.
Our employees may view your data, including "Analytics" data, individually only when:
- it is necessary to fulfill a support request by you, or
- it is necessary to investigate a technical issue affecting only a very small number of players, or
- it is necessary to investigate cheating, fraud or threats to the security and stability of the Service or its users.
In these cases, we will avoid looking at all of your data and only look at what is necessary to resolve the issue at hand.
Our collection of analytics data is classified as a "legitimate interest" under the EU's General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR").
We also start sharing personal data with advertisers after you reach level 12 in the Game. This data is not shared if you disable advertisements by making an in-app purchase in the Game. The list of advertising partners is given below.

Data shared with third parties
We share some data with third parties that help us provide the Service or to do analytics processing. The third parties listed here are classified as "controllers" or "processors" of your data under the GDPR. As a brief and incomplete summary of what this means, "controllers" may use the data for their own purposes while "processors" may only operate on the data under our express instructions.

How we protect your data
We employ technical and administrative safeguards to protect your data against unauthorized access, alteration and loss. We implement a set of industry best practices, such as encryption and minimisation of access, in reasonable proportion with the sensitivity of the data we process.
Third party controllers and processors may transmit and process data outside the EU. We've taken steps to ensure that all transmission to and processing by third parties is done securely and complies with the GDPR.

- You may request a copy of all the data.
- You may request the deletion of all the data.

You can opt out of analytics in the privacy settings screen in the app. For anything else, please send an e-mail to support(at)pixelceremony.com. Fulfilling these requests may require certain actions within the App by you. We aim to fulfill these requests within 30 days, unless we are overwhelmed by the amount of such requests.
After a data deletion request has been fulfilled, your data may survive in backups for up to 90 additional days. If we restore a backup containing data you requested to be deleted, we will delete your data again.
Data deletion requests are device-specific.
If you resume your use of the app after a data deletion request has been fulfilled, more data may be collected.
We will keep a record of all correspondence regarding these requests for up to 1 year.
