For iOS applications, with iOS 14.5 update, Apple introduced App Tracking Transparency Framework (ATT) which requires apps to ask for the permission of users if the app will access IDFA (“The Identifier for Advertisers”) of the users for the purposes of tracking including showing personalized advertising. Such permission is requested from users via a pop-up (ATT pop-up). When you start the Governor of Poker 3 iOS app for the first time, you will see the ATT pop-up. Based on your choice we can receive your IDFA from Apple or not. The pop-up is managed by Apple and we can only change the information you see on the ATT pop-up. Therefore, if you would like to learn more about how ATT pop-ups work, we recommend you to read Apple's policies. Please note that we still show our own consent pop-up in the iOS app after the ATT pop-up in order to ask your consent for additional purposes and to inform you in a more detailed way about our data collection practices.
Creation/administration of your account
In order to play Governor of Poker 3, you have to create an account. We store your log-in data (your nickname, email address and password) to allow you to log in on different devices, based on the performance of a contract. If you choose to register using your e.g. Facebook, Plinga, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Samsung Galaxy or Huawei account, or enter our game from a third-party platform (e.g. Plinga, Facebook, Steam, Microsoft Store, Huawei Appgallery, Samsung Galaxy Store or Google), we may receive certain information about you from the respective third-party provider like e.g. your name, your authentication token, you profile picture, your email address, and a list of your friends that also play the game. This information will be stored in your Governor of Poker 3 account. If the third-party platform has an achievements system to measure and show you your achievements in the games you play, and only if you have provided your consent to the third-party platform provider, we will send event data (for example, that you reached a certain level in Governor of Poker 3) to the third-party platform provider so that this information will also be stored in your profile on the third-party platform. Please note that you can use our Services as a visitor. In that case, we do not ask for an email address, we only require your nickname and device identifier which will be combined with your account ID.

We process this data on the basis of the performance of a contract in order to provide you with our customer service.
We use analytics services to understand which features you like in Governor of Poker 3 and how you use them. For this purpose, we process purchase events (the amount spent within the game), the purchase segment, the level you reached within the game, your session time, which saloons you played in, how many hands you played, whether you won or lost the game, the features you used (e.g. teams or chats), and how many friends you have in the game. We combine this information with campaign data (including the advertisement device ID, install data, your country and language, the campaign ID, and your user ID) to get an insight into campaign results and to create user segments for new user acquisition and remarketing purposes.
The use of analytics services also helps us to improve the game for you, to find crashes and issues in the game, and to improve the performance of our websites/apps. For this purpose, we process crash information, ANR information (the situation if the game freezes), and device information (battery, Wifi situation, CPU, memory). When you play Governor of Poker 3 from Microsoft Store, Microsoft can provide us data about the performance of the game and any problems you experience, including error reports. Error reports (also known as “crash dumps”) can include details of your software or hardware related to an error. This data will be used solely for finding and fixing bugs and errors and improving the game overall. Please note that we receive crash dumps from other platforms that our game is offered (e.g. Apple App Store and Google Play Store).
We also use Facebook Insights, an analytics service provided by Facebook and implemented through the Facebook SDK (SDK is a collection of software programs for the purpose of creating applications across web and/or mobile platforms for a particular operating system) which allows Facebook to collect your Personal Data when you play Governor of Poker 3. Facebook’s analytics service combines your in-game data (such as the level you reached and the amount you spent within the game), the purchase segment, campaign data (creative views of and clicks on advertisements, advertisement Device ID, installs, your country and language, the campaign ID and your user ID), the session amount and session time, with Facebook's data about demographic data (for example your age, gender, country or language and likes) that Facebook knows from your Facebook profile.

For this purpose, your Personal Data, including your in-game behaviour, your country, game language, purchase segmentation, the highest price point ever spent in Governor of Poker 3, and the advertisement ID are collected and sent to a data management service provider.
New user acquisition, remarketing and campaign tracking
The following processes help us to find new users, remarket existing users and measure the effectiveness of our advertisements:
New user acquisition: In order to acquire new users, we create advertisements (banners/videos) for Governor of Poker 3 and provide our advertisements to third-party user acquisition companies which show our ads in their apps or on their websites. If you click on the banner/video shown to you in a third-party app or on a third-party website, you will be redirected to the app stores (Google, Steam, Microsoft, Samsung Galaxy, Huawei, Apple or web version of Governor of Poker 3) where you can install and/or play Governor of Poker 3. The information that you have clicked/viewed the advertisement (campaign information) will be sent from the user acquisition companies to an attribution platform provider (Appsflyer) and will then be passed by Appsflyer to the app store. If you install Governor of Poker 3, the campaign information will also be passed from Appflyer to us and will be processed to measure the effectiveness of our advertisements. The described data processing activities help us prevent fraud, to track and optimize our campaigns, and to reward our user acquisition partners. This is based on consent obtained from you by the third-party app or the third-party website.
When you start playing Governor of Poker 3, we collect and share post install events (for example, the level you reached within the game and purchase segments) either through the Appsflyer SDK or directly with the user acquisition companies which helps them to optimize their services. Post install events also help us to optimize our Services. We share these post install events based on our legitimate interest.
Furthermore, we use Facebook’s ”Lookalike Audience” feature to find new users based on the user segments we have created for our user base. In order to allow Facebook to search for a ”lookalike audience”, we select the segments that have a good spending behavior and give a list of these users' Facebook IDs and Advertisement IDs (IDFA from the device, which users can reset) to Facebook.
