(b) Personal Data We Automatically Collect through Your Use of the Services
We collect online and mobile device identifiers when you access the Services, usually when you download and play one of our mobile applications or when you browse or interact with one of our websites.

UUID – Universally Unique Identifier, which is the reference used in relation to technologies other than Microsoft technologies.
The mobile device identifier IDFA is not collected if you have limited Ad Tracking on your device. Resetting your Ad Tracking setting will change collection of this data. Likewise, the mobile device identifier GAID is not collected if you have opted out of Ads Personalization on your device.

From time to time third-party advertising partners also provide us IDFA/GAID information from your device. This is to help us measure the effectiveness of our ad campaigns where we advertise our games on other third-party platforms and services.

We use technical and organizational measures to protect the personal data that we hold against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.

If we learn of a data breach that is likely to affect the security of your personal data, we may attempt to notify you electronically via email so that you can take appropriate protective steps and/or by posting a notice via the Services if a data breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.

As another example, your personal data may be retained to fulfill our legitimate interests such as resolving disputes or enforcing our Terms of Service or other policies, or as necessitated by law or legal considerations, such as for tax, auditing, fraud detection, maintain marketing suppression lists of transactional history. When retention is necessary, we will de-identify such personal data to the extent reasonably possible. When retention is no longer needed to fulfill the processing purposes, your personal data is deleted from our records.
