Pine Street Codeworks Privacy Policy

Your Privacy

Pine Street Codeworks LLC is committed to protecting the privacy rights of our users. The bottom-line is that if at any time you wish to have your personally-identifiable information removed from our databases, please contact us.

This Privacy Policy has been written to inform you as to the ways we collect, store, use, manage, and, in certain circumstances, share the information you provide in connection with any Pine Street Codeworks game, application, or web site ("Service"). Please note that the scope of this Privacy Policy is limited to only information collected by us through use of the Service.

By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of your personal information as outlined in this Privacy Policy. We may amend the Privacy Policy from time to time, and we encourage you to consult the Privacy Policy regularly for changes.

What information do we collect?

Our primary objective in collecting user information is to provide and enhance the Service and to enable users to easily navigate and enjoy the Service. Because we may produce many different types of game products, this policy attempts to cover the widest range of information collection and is not representative of the information we collect in, for example, games we make that do not ask for any of your personal information.

When you install Pine Street Codeworks' games or applications, we may collect and record the information you provide us voluntarily through any of several application stores (such as Steam, Google Play, Apple App Store, Facebook Game Room, etc.) and social networks (such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.) in accordance with the policies and terms of these third-party services. We may, in some cases, and only with your permission, store your first and last name, gender, and other basic profile information, but only to provide you a better, more personalized game experience. We do not store your date of birth, addresses, telephone numbers, or credit card information.

In some cases, when available to us, with your permission, we may store your email address and use it in conjunction with your name and other information to notify you of new product releases and features, service notifications, and to solicit your feedback and input. Those emails will contain links for preference management and where appropriate, unsubscribe links should you decide you do not want to receive further emails from us.

For multi-player "social" games that connect to your friends and other players, some information that we collect, such as your high scores, game progress, statistics, in-game messages, virtual items you have purchased in the service, and other session usage activity may be displayed to other users, for the purpose of fulfilling the game-play and game design requirements of the Service.

We also collect "usage information" (a.k.a. analytic data) when necessary, that may be, in some cases, linked to your name or other information provided to us, that is only used to help us improve the experience of all our users, but is strictly for internal use only and is not disclosed publicly. Usage information that is logged on our servers includes, but is not limited to, browser type, program errors and exceptions, interface clicks, game screen captures, game-play and purchasing habits, and other game events. We use this information, for example, to discover bugs and other problems, make the service easier to use and more fun, and discover users who cheat, hack the game or abuse other users.

Any time you access the Service, we may collect aggregate information including but not limited to internet protocol addresses, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of this activity ("aggregate information"). We use this aggregate information to better tailor the Service to visitor interests, to provide you more efficient customer support, and to overall enhance the Service.

How do we protect your information?

For certain kinds of games we make, our game software and databases are hosted on a secured server "in the cloud" that does not allow access to the public. Firewalls, passwords, and modern encryption technology protect the information about our users that we store. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties (for example, "hackers") will never be able to overcome those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. Also please note that email and some messaging systems are not considered secure, so we discourage you from sending us personal information through these mediums.

What about "cookies"?

A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk, generally to quickly identify a user's computer and to "remember" things about the user's visit, such as your preferences or your log-in information. The Service (such as our website) sends cookies to your computer when you access or view content of the Service. For certain games, particularly web-based online games, the information contained in a cookie may be linked to your personal information for purposes such as improving the quality of our service, tailoring recommendations to your interests, and making the Service easier to use. You can disable cookies at any time through your browser, although you may not be able to access or use features of the Service.

Will Pine Street Codeworks disclose the information it collects to outside parties?

We want you to feel secure sharing your information with us. In all cases of data access and collection, the information you provide will not be disclosed, rented, leased, loaned, sold, or otherwise voluntarily distributed to unaffiliated third parties. Your information will be used solely for the purpose of providing you with and improving the Service.

We may disclose information about you to our partners and publishers, in order to provide the Service, resolve service problems and correct errors in the Service, to communicate with you about the Service, to provide you with advertising and promotional information in connection with the Service, and to enhance your experience on the Service. However, we do not give our partners an independent right to share this information. Due to our contractual obligations with these third parties and the need to share information to deliver and support the Service, we cannot provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of sharing information (whether personal information or non-personal information) with these third parties. Pine Street Codeworks, certain of its partners, and each of their contractors and employees may view the information that you transmit to the Service to provide the Service and otherwise perform the tasks set forth in this Privacy Policy. If you wish to have your personally-identifiable information removed from our servers, please contact us.

We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on the Service. We do not provide any personal information to third-party advertising companies on a non-aggregate basis. Our system and the third-party advertising technology may use aggregate information, non-personal information, our cookies on your hard drive and your use of the Service to target advertisements. In addition, advertisers may use other third-party advertising technology to target advertising on other sites. If advertisements are served to you, a unique third-party cookie or cookies may be placed on your computer.

Will you disclose my information if required by law?

Pine Street Codeworks may release user information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with law, (ii) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements or (iii) protect the rights, property or safety of Pine Street Codeworks, our users, or others. Note that Pine Street Codeworks is not required to question or contest the validity of any search warrant, subpoena or other similar governmental request that Pine Street Codeworks may receive.

Additionally, in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other similar event, customer information may be transferred to Pine Street Codeworks' successor or assignee, if permitted by and done in accordance with applicable law.

Others' Information

You may decide to provide us with another person's personal information such as email address so that the person may be invited to join the Service. We use this information to contact and if necessary, remind that person that he or she has been invited to join the Service or receive content from the Service. We may disclose such information if required to do so in order to comply with legal process, as described above.

Third-Party Privacy Policies

Because our games may be integrated with third-party web sites such as those from Facebook, Apple, or Google, some of the interactions you have while playing our game may be interactions with these third-party sites and not Pine Street Codeworks' software.

Pine Street Codeworks may provide links to other web sites. The privacy policies of these linked sites are the responsibility of the linked site and Pine Street Codeworks has no control or influence over their policies. Please check the policies of each site you visit for specific information. Pine Street Codeworks cannot be held liable for damage or misdoings of other sites linked or otherwise.

Some of our games, such as Tiny Bubbles, may use Unity plug-ins such as Unity Analytics or Unity Ads. These services are covered under Unity's own privacy policy, which you can read here. For answers about Unity's compliance with the GDPR in the EU, please read this.

What is your policy regarding children?

The Service is not geared toward children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information we will delete such information from our files as quickly as possible.

Questions and Feedback

If you have any questions or feedback related to our Privacy Policy, please contact us.

Thank you for playing!
