SHARING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We share Aggregated Data with third-party partners and service providers. This Aggregated Data does not contain Personal Data and consists of statistics relating to the usage of the Properties. We do this to better understand the experience of our users, and how to improve the Properties. Since the aggregated data we collect is anonymized and thus does not contain Personal Data, it is not subject to GDPR regulations. We may, to the extent required by law, share some Personal Data with government institutions.
DATA WE COLLECT FROM THIRD PARTIES
Certain Personal Data which we collect are sourced from third parties. We only collect data from third parties that you have interacted directly with and indirect connection to your use of the Properties, such as Google Play Store or Apple App Store. The data we collect from those third parties are (1) Device information (such as phone model or operating system); (2) age range (though not your specific age). While we do not believe that those categories strictly speaking constitute Personal Data under the GDPR definition, we nevertheless only process such data to the extent that it is within our legitimate interests. For device information, our legitimate interests consist in the necessity of such information to ensure the Property’s proper functioning, and forage range our legitimate interests consists in analysis for market segmentation. Since it is an age range and not your specific age, we believe that our legitimate interests in being able to properly understand our userbase in a wide sense are reasonable in relation to the extremely limited processing done to your Personal Data. We also collect certain aggregated market data, but since this data is completely aggregated and anonymized, it does not fall within the scope of the GDPR or other relevant privacy legislation.

KEEPING YOUR DATA SAFE
