What information do we collect? 🛈
The types of information we collect depend on how you interact with us. Generally speaking, we collect information in three main ways: A) when you provide it to us and B) automatically when you use the Swift Services.
A. Information You Provide
You can provide us with different kinds of information depending on how you interact with the Swift Services. Sometimes we’ll ask you to provide specific pieces of information, such as when we require it to provide parts of the Swift Services to you (for example, by prompting you to complete an online registration process). If we ask you to provide us with information in these cases and you choose not to, you may not be able to access the relevant Swift Services and/or some features may not operate as intended.
B. Information We Collect Automatically
We collect some information automatically when you visit, access, or use the Swift Services. This includes information about your gameplay or application usage, purchases, entitlements, and other activity in the Swift Services, typically associated with your account (if you are logged into your Swift account or use a third-party account to access the Swift Services) or with an identifier we have assigned to your device or profile. While the specific types of information that we automatically collect may vary, they generally include:
- Usage information and statistics about how you interact with the Swift Services, including the application you used or the game you played, how long you used or played it and when, gameplay attempts, progression and results, saved preferences, crash reports, the URLs of our websites that you have visited, URLs of referring and exiting pages, page views, time spent on a page, number of clicks, and platform type;
- Technical information about your computer, device, hardware, or software you use to access our services, such as IP address, device identifiers, your internet service provider, plugins, or other transactional or identifier information for your device (such as device make and model, information about device operating systems and browsers, or other device or system-related specifications); and
- The general location of your device, which we typically derive from your device’s IP address.
The Swift Services use technologies such as cookies, log files, and web beacons to automatically collect the types of information listed above. Some of these technologies may create small files or record-keeping tools that may be stored on your device. They help us, our service providers, and third parties recognize your device and provide information about how you use and interact with the Swift Services. For example, they support our ability to authenticate users, remember preferences, manage advertising, personalize experiences, and conduct data analytics.
Please note that if certain features on the Swift Services are provided by third parties, those third parties may also use automated means of data collection and may record information about your use of the Swift Services or others’ websites over time. These features are subject to those third parties’ privacy notices and policies.
