We use the information we collect:
Vendors and Service Providers. We may share any information we receive with vendors and service providers retained in connection with the provision of our Services.
User Content. Our Services are social services in which you can find, enjoy, and share content. If you choose to share content, like the games you’re playing, with other Users, your username will be viewable by those Users. We are not responsible for the other users’ use of available information, so you should carefully consider whether and what to post or how you identify yourself on the Service.

Analytics Partners. We use analytics services such as Google Analytics to collect and process certain analytics data. These services may also collect information regarding your use of other websites, apps, and online resources. You can learn about Google’s practices by going to https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/, and opt-out of them by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout .
Advertising Partners. We work with third party advertising partners to show you ads that we think may interest you. These advertising partners may set and access their own cookies, pixel tags and similar technologies on our Services and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you which they may collect over time and across different online services. Some of our advertising partners are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1#!/) or the Digital Advertising Alliance ( http://optout.aboutads.info/?c=2&lang=EN ). If you do not wish to receive personalized ads, please visit their opt-out pages to learn about how you may opt out of receiving web-based personalized ads from member companies. You can access any settings offered by your mobile operating system to limit ad tracking, or you can install the AppChoices mobile app to learn more about how you may opt out of personalized ads in mobile apps.
As Required By Law and Similar Disclosures. We may access, preserve, and disclose your information if we believe doing so is required or appropriate to: (a) comply with law enforcement requests and legal process, such as a court order or subpoena; (b) respond to your requests; or (c) protect your, our, or others’ rights, property, or safety. For the avoidance of doubt, the disclosure of your information may occur if you post any objectionable content on or through our Services.
Consent. We may also disclose your information with your permission.
We make reasonable efforts to protect your information by using physical and electronic safeguards designed to improve the security of the information we maintain. However, because our Services are hosted electronically, we can make no guarantees as to the security or privacy of your information.
Our Services are hosted in the United States and intended for visitors located within the United States. If you choose to use our Services from the European Union or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring your personal information outside of those regions to the United States for storage and processing. Also, we may transfer your data from the U.S. to other countries or regions in connection with storage and processing of data, fulfilling your requests, and operating our Services. By providing any information, including personal information, on or to our Services, you consent to such transfer, storage, and processing.
You can request the deletion of your personal information by submitting a request to [email protected]. You can ask us to restrict the processing of your personal information by submitting a request to [email protected]. If we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time by submitting a request to [email protected].
After expiration of the applicable retention periods, we will either delete or anonymize your personal information or, if this is not possible, then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
This section applies if you are playing one of our Apps that is offered through Apple Arcade (“Apple Arcade Apps”).
Your Apple Arcade App Information. We do not collect, use, disclose or retain any of your personal information as part of the standard operation of our Apple Arcade Apps. You can use and enjoy our Apple Arcade Apps without supplying us with your personal information. We collect some anonymized information (including your Player Name and game score) as part of your gameplay. All other information from your use of the Apple Arcade Apps is sent directly to Apple, and is subject to the terms, conditions, and policies between you and Apple.
iCloud. Our Apple Arcade Apps provide full support for Apple’s iCloud service, which means that they automatically save some of your game information (such as progress and current game state) and allow iCloud access to that information. If you have iCloud enabled on your device, iCloud will upload that data to the cloud on your behalf. This process never involves our servers or storage. You can enable or disable iCloud through your device settings.
Anonymized Data. As part of the Apple Arcade service, we may periodically receive data from Apple about the usage of our Apple Arcade Apps. This data is anonymized, which means it cannot be connected to individuals.
Kooapps LLC is responsible for processing your information. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about our processing activities, please email us at [email protected] or write to us at PO Box 50625 Bellevue, WA 98015.
We also work with third party service providers who may also collect persistent identifiers through the Services. A list of third parties is provided below.
