and Apple's Game Center specific Terms and Conditions and information about what data it might collect here:
Logging in to Facebook is not necessary to play 10 Pin Shuffle. However, you may choose to post your achievements or scores to
your Facebook timeline, at which point you will be asked to log in using your Facebook username and password. We do not store or collect this information.
We utilize Facebook's API to grant you access to your account so you can post to your timeline. The Facebook API provides an authentication protocol that allows users
to approve the application to act on their behalf without sharing their password.
The game collects the minimum amount of information needed to post to your timeline.
Logging in to Twitter is not necessary to play 10 Pin Shuffle but you may do so if you'd like to tweet an achievement or score to your account.
The game does not collect your e-mail address or use it in any way even if it's provided by Facebook or Twitter. If you e-mail Digital Smoke's customer support then your e-mail address
may be used to respond to you in order to help solve your problem. A copy of your e-mails may be stored on Digital Smoke's computers but your
e-mail address will never be given to a third party or used for any kind of marketing.
Third Party Personalized Advertising
This sections only applies to the free versions of the game. The paid version, called "10 Pin Shuffle Pro" does not contain any third party advertising.
10 Pin Shuffle uses several third party advertising companies to serve ads within the free versions of 10 Pin Shuffle. We are only able to offer the game to you for free
because of the money these adverts generate. If adverts annoy you then please consider buying 10 Pin Shuffle Pro which doesn't contain any ads.
Ads served within the game can be categorized as personalized or non-personalized. Both types now require consent from users in the European Economic Area (EEA) as specified by
Europe's new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you use the game within the EEA then you will be asked for your consent to display your choice of
either personalized or non-personalized ads within the game.
In other regions, personalized ads are served by default but you may turn personalized ads off from the game's Settings screen.
Adverts will still be displayed within the game even if you turn personalized ads off. However, they may be less relevant to your interests.
Companies try to display adverts that are relevant to you. They do this by collecting data and creating an advertising profile about you when you use an app that
contains their Software Development Kits (SDKs). The advertising networks that our games use are Google Mobile Ads, AppLovin and Chartboost.
All three companies adhere to the Privacy Shield principles for the collection and processing of personal data from end users.
Each SDK collects different types of information from your device in an attempt to determine what adverts might interest you.
The data collected might include but is not limited to:
- Identifier for advertisers (IDFA) which identifies your device.
- Country, time zone and locale settings (country and preferred language).
- IP Address which can be used to narrow the location of your internet service provider to a specific city.
- Device make, model and operating system.
- Device properties related to screen size & orientation, audio volume and battery.
- Network connection type and speed.
- Phone carrier.
- App usage data.
Non Personalized Ads
You may turn Personalized Ads off from the 10 Pin Shuffle Settings screen. Tap the "Help & Settings" button and then "Settings".
Then scroll down to the bottom of the list of settings and turn "Show Personalized Ads" to Off. Each advertising network will then be told not to collect
any more data about the user of the device. Adverts will still be displayed within the game even if you turn personalized ads off.
However, they may be less relevant to you and of less interest so it's not recommended unless you are strongly against the collection of data to serve personalized ads.
The game checks your device to see if any other Apps by Digital Smoke are installed and doesn't display cross promotional ads to those games if you've already downloaded them.
This information is only used locally by the App and is not sent to anyone or stored on any server.
