We’ll share some of your information with advertisers to help make the advertisements you see more relevant to your interests when you use our Services. We do not directly share personal information that identifies you with third-party advertisers for their advertising purposes unless you give us your consent, where legally required. 

Advertisements that are tailored for your interests may include banner ads on game boards or in Services, such as full-screen ads between moves or games or ads made available through an “offer wall” (in which advertisers offer virtual currency or other in-game items to players in exchange for watching an advertisement, signing up for an account, completing a survey or performing some other activity). Offer walls are hosted by third-party offer wall providers, and the offers are made by third-party advertisers, not by FunDream.

  • Performance data (like the number of clicks on an advertisement);

  • Certain device information (like IP address, non-persistent device identifier such as IDFA, and de-identified persistent device identifier such as a hashed Android ID);

  • A unique identifier, such as your ID provided by your device manufacturer, for example, Apple's Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA) or Google Ad ID (GAID) or FunDream player ID; and/or other contextual data about your game play (like your level and session length).

 

In addition to serving you with relevant ads, the information collected may be used to: 

  • Measure how effective advertising campaigns are;

  • Offer you targeted advertising in third party services for products and services that are more likely to appeal to you;

  • Undertake web analytics to analyse traffic and other player activity; and/or

  • Improve our Services.

Advertisers or advertising intermediaries may collect this information through the use of cookies and other similar tracking technologies. 

 

Please note, after clicking on a third-party advertisement or offer, you may no longer be on a site or app controlled by FunDream or the social network through which you are playing FunDream games.
Please note that the practices of third-party companies delivering advertisements on our Services are subject to those companies’ own privacy policies and privacy practices. If you have any questions about how these third-party services use your information, you should review their policies and contact them directly.
