Sudoku & Friends PrivacyPolicy

What types of information are collected?

We distinguish between two types of information:

personal and non-personal information.

Personal information

We collect no personal information about you or your children through our apps.

Non-personal information

We collect and use non-personal information (Analytical Data) during the use of our apps:

1. Are there any errors in the app? Where and when do they occur?

2. How long do users use our apps?

3. How do our users use our apps, which features are most popular and which ones are used less.

This helps us to gain a better understanding of our users, to draw conclusions for future concepts, and, ultimately, to develop better apps. In order to collect this information, we use Google Analytics.
