Please note that we show third party advertising in our games and also market our Services via third parties. We wanted to provide you with more detail about how we use information for advertising, both in-game and on other third party properties.
When you view ads on Vigr Games’s properties (advertising)
To enable us to show in-game ads we may send your advertising ID, IP-address and other information to advertisers (or ad networks) to enable them to find appropriate ads to serve to you in our games and on third party properties. You can control and limit our use of your advertising ID in your device settings. Vigr Games does not control which specific ads are shown in our games (this is controlled by ad networks) but we do blacklist certain categories of ads.
Advertising IDs are used by the ad networks for a number of purposes, for example, to:
limit the number of times you see the same ad;
ensure they are dealing with humans/with real devices and not automated bots;
to serve you with advertisements likely to be relevant to you;
other brands buy advertisement placement via an ad network or ad exchange to advertise their products in Vigr Games’s games. The ad network or ad exchange acts as intermediary between the other game companies and Vigr Games. In order for an ad network to charge the company buying the ad, clicks from the ad and potentially installs of other developers’ applications party apps are tracked. Views, clicks, installs and similar events from ads are measured using Advertiser ID.
IP-address is typically used by advertisers to broadly see the general geographic area you are coming from for example country, state, and sometimes at city level.
When you view Vigr Games’s ads on third party services (marketing)
Vigr Games also markets its games in other apps by asking ad networks to serve its ads to audiences that will be interested in them. The advertising IDs are used by the ad networks for a number of purposes, including, for example, to measure ad effectiveness (looking at aggregated views, clicks and installs it generates through its advertising in other publishers’ games). Advertising IDs are also used to track views, clicks, installs and other similar events from ads.
You can opt out of interest based advertising on mobile applications by changing the privacy settings of your device. For example, disabling "Personalised Ads" or “Allow Apps to Request to Track” (Apple iOS) or enabling "Opt out of Ads Personalization" (Android).
9.1 Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password, which enables you to access certain parts of the Service, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential and you are responsible for any misuse of such information. You must change your password on a regular basis and must not share your password with anyone.
9.2 You are solely responsible for the security and confidentiality of your account. Please ensure that you do not allow anyone else to access the Service in your name and sign off after you have finished accessing your account.
9.3 You are responsible for all orders, and for the accuracy of all information, sent via the internet using your user ID, password or any other personal identification used to identify you on the Services.
You have the following rights over the personal information we hold about you:
(a) to access, correct or request deletion of your personal information;
(b) to object to processing of your personal information (which is processed on the grounds of legitimate interests), ask us to restrict processing of your personal information or request portability of your personal information (request that data which you have provided to us is provided to you, so you can transfer this to another data controller);
(c) to opt-out of personalized offers or personalized gameplay (based on your purchase history, in-game activity and other information) and to object to the use of your personal information for direct marketing purposes and profiling;
(d) if we are processing your personal information with your consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent;
(e) you have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your personal information. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority (for example, the State Data Protection Inspectorate in Lithuania);
