Privacy Policy of App

The following privacy policy is intended to inform you in particular about the type, scope, purpose, duration, and legal basis for the processing of personal information in the app SkatGenie+ ("ASG").

1. What data is collected and how is it used?

The ASG respects your privacy. It is the goal to keep the personal information used in the ASG to a minimum. Personal information is only processed in the ASG if you really wish to do so.

The personal information that may be collected by the ASG and may be considered personal information under applicable data protection laws falls into the following two categories:

1.1 Information collected automatically

Primarily the ASG collects data about the game (e.g. game statistics, game progress, game performance, preferred game settings, etc.).

In addition it only collects automatically the language setting of your device to show you the right privacy policy.

1.2 Information provided by me voluntarily

The ASG can be personalized easily. You may change your players' profile picture and design your own playing cards. You can also pick your own player's name and select your preferred language. Please note that it up to you to use your real name or a fictional one. The same applies to the players' profile pictures.

To change your profile picture or the design of your playing cards, the ASG will request access to your private photo collection. The pictures you pick and import from your photo library will be stored in the ASG, so you do not have to do it after each app launch again.

2. Who receives my personal information?

2.1 Data communication between players

The ASG supports multi-player gaming. You can play with other players near you if they also have installed the ASG. To inform other player nearby, your player's name and a random ID-number is transmitted wirelessly besides other general gaming data to the other players. Your own card designs are not transmitted, though.

The exchange of personal information happens only after you activated the multi-player mode in the ASG.

If you do not want to reveal your identity to other players, you should not enter your real name in the ASG. You can protect your privacy by using the default settings of the ASG, or you could use pseudonyms instead.

2.2 Appodeal

The ASG is financed by advertising. This requires communication with Appodeal's data centers. Please note that all the data collected in the ASG (described in paragraph 1.1 and 1.2) is not transmitted to Appodeal's data centers. It is only used by the ASG.
