Some examples of how we may use your information are: to register your account, to collect payments, to inform you of updates to games you are playing or of other games, to notify you of special promotions and to provide customer support.
PlayNext automatically collects and records certain information when you access or use a PlayNext game. This information includes your unique device ID ("UDID") or, in the case of iOS, your Identifier for Advertisers (“IDFA”), your geographic location (based on your Internet Protocol ("IP") address), the version of your operating system ("OS"), your game platform ID ("GPF ID"), (which is an ID assigned to you that will be used to help associate your identity across multiple platforms), and your in-game activity.
We use this information to assist with understanding trends in usage and for help with tracking and correcting errors. We also use (and may provide to third party analytics PlayNext as described below) country-level geographic location information to enforce our Terms of Service, customize the user experience and make recommendations to you.
We may also give you the opportunity to opt-in to location-based services, which utilize a device's GPS coordinates. You may opt-out of these location services via the settings on your device.
PlayNext provides games and the Service via third party marketplaces, such as Apple's App Store and Google's Android Market. These marketplaces may collect information about you or receive information from us in the course of providing or analyzing their services. PlayNext is not responsible for these marketplaces, and is not affiliated with or responsible for the actions of these third parties. You should review these third parties' terms of service and privacy policies, which are separate from PlayNext's.
When you register to play PlayNext games through the Service, we may ask whether you would like to provide us with certain information via in-game dialog boxes. This information may include: your email, user name, phone number, gender, date of birth, home address, photo and address book. You may choose to skip these dialog boxes, however. If you do choose to provide certain information, PlayNext may use it as follows:
PlayNext may, with your consent, send push notifications to your mobile devices to provide game updates and other relevant messages. You can manage push notifications from the "options" or "settings" page within the relevant game. You may also be able to manage them from your device's settings page for the relevant game.

You may be able to use Facebook Connect, Twitter or other social media functions to sign into the Service and authenticate against Facebook or Twitter, allowing you to be recognized "in-app" based on your Facebook, Twitter or other social media accounts. If you do so, PlayNext will collect information that is visible via such accounts. That information may include: your name, your gender, your date of birth, your phone number, your Facebook or Twitter ID, your Profile Picture, your URL, and a list of your Facebook friends. This information will be used mainly for user registration and in social features, which may include friend-to-friend interaction, chat or messaging functionality, public leaderboards, head-to-head competition and other similar features.

PlayNext may install certain software development kits ("SDKs") in the Service.
