You may access the applicable “in-app” purchase rules and policies directly from the App Store.

We obtain the categories of personal information listed above from the following categories of sources:

1.1. Directly from you (Information that you submit):

Guided by the principle of data minimization we designed our Apps in a way that doesn't require you to sign up for an account to use the App. It means that you do not need to provide us with any information that can be used to access the App (like full name, username, the public username used on social media accounts, phone number(s), e-mail address, or other similar information), however, when you decide to contact us using the e-mail or support form (for example to inquire about the App or to request support regarding the App usage) we may collect and use whatever contact information (name, e-mail address, and any information that you provide, including the contents of the messages or attachments) you send us via email or contact form when it is necessary for the adequate performance of the contract between you and us. We use such information to respond effectively to your inquiry, fulfill your requests, and send you communications that you request and perform the requested services.

1.2. Indirectly from you (Information collected by automated means):

When you use the App, some information about your mobile device and your user behavior may be processed automatically. This information is generally non-personal, i.e. it does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual, and we may access it only in aggregated form. We process this information on the ground of our legitimate interest in improving our App and giving our Users the best experience. If we do not access such data, we may not be able to provide you with all the features of the App.

We use third-party automatic data processing technologies to analyze certain information sent by your device via our App (advertising or analytics tools). Some of them launch automated processing of your personal data, including profiling, which means any form of automated processing of personal data used to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to you, in particular, to analyze or predict aspects concerning your personal preferences, interests, behavior, location or movements (see the list of data described below). Processing information through automatic data processing technologies starts automatically when you launch the App.

The following are the types of information we collect indirectly from you:

The following data can be processed:

Information provided automatically to advertising or analytics tools does not generally come under our control, therefore we cannot be responsible for processing such information. Please mind that some services are engaged in personal data profiling and may obtain information related to your personality and/or your device by using technologies that do not belong to our scope of responsibility. We do not control, supervise or stand surety for how the third parties process your personal data, that might be collected by their means (not through our App). Any information request regarding the disclosure of your personal information should be directed to such third parties (see Section III).

II. THE PURPOSES OF PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA

Our mission is to constantly improve our App and provide you with new experiences. As part of this mission, we use your information for the following purposes:

  1. To provide the App, maintain, improve, test, and monitor the effectiveness of our App. We use information you provide to us directly and information that is processed automatically to provide and deliver the App to you as well as to better understand User behavior and trends, detect potential outages and technical issues, support the existing functions of the App, and to add new features and services to the App.

  1. To provide you with interest-based (behavioral) advertising or other targeted content. We may use information that is processed automatically for marketing purposes (to show ads that may be of interest to you based on your preferences). We provide personalized content and information to you, which can include online ads or other forms of marketing.

  1. To communicate with you. We may use information that is processed automatically to send you push notifications with technical notices, updates, security alerts, and support and administrative messages. Similarly, we use your contact information to respond to you when you contact us.

If any new purposes for processing your personal data arise, we will let you know we start to process the information for that other purpose by introducing the corresponding changes to this Privacy Policy.

III. INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
