How we process your information

Barracuda Fish Games uses analytics services to understand how users engage with our products. Our analysis relies on your consistent device identifier, or identifier for vendor (IDFV) on Apple devices, so that we can track your behavior over time and develop an understanding of how you prefer to interact with our products.

If you have more than one Barracuda Fish Games product installed on your device, those products may share the same identifier value. This enables us to develop an understanding of how you engage with all of the Barracuda Fish Games products you have installed. The identifier value is provided to Barracuda Fish Games through the operating system on your device. In the course of processing your data, we may do any of the following:

  • Analyze your behavior in our products over time;
  • Analyze your behavior in aggregate;
  • Combine your information with the information of other players to create anonymized aggregate reports that allow us to understand large-scale behavior trends;
  • Analyze your information to understand how well our products perform on your device or to investigate bugs, crashes, and other technical issues;
  • Combine your information with the information of other players to create customer segments based on behavior in our products or location-based behavior;
  • Use analysis of your behavior in our products to provide you with customized gameplay experiences;
  • Use your device identifier to enroll you in an A/B test. An A/B test is a type of simple behavioral experiment wherein groups of users are provided with slightly different experiences in our products so that we can research and analyze which of the experience is the most compelling to users of our products; and
  • Analyze your behavior in the context of an A/B test.

Data collection by Analytics SDK's

Barracuda Fish Games uses Google Firebase to collect and store data from your device when you use our products. This information includes technical and related information about your device and operating system, information about your feature usage, gameplay and usage statistics and system interactions.

If you play a game offline, this data will be stored on your device and may be transmitted to Google Firebase when your device connects to the Internet. If you participate in online components of our games, such as leaderboards, Google Game Services may also collect, use, store, transmit, and publicly display statistical data regarding game scores and achievements.

Data collection by Advertisement SDK's

Our products may employ ad serving technologies that use cookies, clear GIFs, web beacons, tracking pixels, and other similar technologies like identifiers to deliver offers to you. Some of these technologies can sync or connect behavior across different mobile apps, devices, and websites. The ads can be tailored to your interests. This is called interest-based advertising. For instance, you may be presented with an offer for a product we think you might enjoy. Or if you express interest in a game, you might receive an advertisement later for that game or similar products in Barracuda Fish Games games or in different mobile applications or on websites.

Other in-game advertising technologies enable advertising to be temporarily uploaded to your mobile device or web browser and later replaced while you are online.

These technologies collect and use information so we can serve appropriate advertising to you and help track results and measure effectiveness. In addition to device advertising identifiers, this information includes:

Advertisements served and the location of the ad;

Length of time an advertisement was visible;

Domain type, IP address, the size of the advertisement; and

Advertisement response.

Third party advertising companies may combine the information collected in the context of delivering an ad to you via our products with other information they have independently collected over time and across different products, websites, and services.

Many of these companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies. A list of ad serving companies that operate their own networks in our games as well as how to opt out the extent applicable can be found below.

To learn more about some of these ad networks’ practices, see the Your Choices and Controls section below.

EEA Only

Barracuda Fish Games works with advertising partners that may collect information from you as part of their process of serving advertisements in our products. This is described above in the section “Ad Serving Technologies.” In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Barracuda Fish Games’ advertising partners in the European Economic Area all function as independent data controllers. Prior to showing you personalized advertisements, you will be asked whether you consent to sharing your information with the advertising company. If you are a resident of an EEA country and indicate that you are below the age of 16, you will be served non-personalized ads and the advertising companies will not collect personal information from you.

Purposes of processing undertaken and legal basis for processing

Data collected is used to:

  • Get insights on stability including the number of sessions played, duration of use or the advertisements you are watching, allowing us to improve your experience and provide timely maintenance updates to our existing applications/games
  • Use insights to develop new and better applications/games
  • Understand your centers of interests and, thanks to this profiling, propose you targeted and relevant advertisements (used by advertisement SDK’s)
  • Communicate with you, when you contact us by any means whatsoever

Advertising and Analytics SDK’s automatically send data to their respective servers for processing which is made available to us using their dashboards. Ad network’s have their own privacy policies. We make sure to use accredited ad networks by Google.

International transfer of data

Personal information we collect may be stored and processed for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy in the United States or any other country in which Barracuda Fish Games, its business partners, or third party agents operate.

By using our products, you consent that your personal information may be transferred to recipients in the United States and other countries that may not offer the same level of privacy protection as the laws in your country of residence or citizenship.

How we protect your data

We have put in place reasonable controls designed to help safeguard the personal information we collect via our products. However, no security measures are perfect and we cannot assure you that personal information that we collect will never be accessed or used in an unauthorized way.

Age guidelines and children’s privacy

Protecting children’s privacy is extremely important to us. We also encourage parents and/or guardians to play an active role in their children’s online experience at all times.

Barracuda Fish Games’ products are intended for general audiences and do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 16. If you are under 16 years of age or a minor in your country of residence, please ask your legal guardian’s permission to use or access Barracuda Fish Games’ products.

If you believe Barracuda Fish Games has inadvertently collected such information, please contact us (information below) so we can promptly remove the information.

Legal basis for processing European Economic Area (EEA) only

If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA), our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where: (i) we have your consent to do so, (ii) where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you (e.g. to deliver a service you have requested), or (iii) where the processing is in our legitimate interests (and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms). In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you, or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.

If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information). Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests which are not already described in this Privacy Policy, we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.

Technical and usage information

Barracuda Fish Games does not collect in-game technical or usage data or gameplay analytics for players in the European Economic Area. Note that Google Play Services, Apple Game Center, and other platform-level services may collect gameplay analytics if you are located within the EEA.

Please see your device-level settings for more information about how to disable those services. Barracuda Fish Games considers any data specific to your use of our apps that is collected or processed through Google Play Services or Apple Game Center to be in our legitimate business interests.
