Last updated: August 27, 2018

This privacy policy applies to all Zestnut’s games and other related services, such as this website. Please note that we may update this policy once in a while. Here we do our very best to explain you how and why we collect data about you, with whom, how and why we share it, and how you can affect these things yourself.

If you do not wish to provide any data at all about yourself to us or the other parties mentioned here, please do not install or play our games or use our other services.

If you have any problems with your personal data in our games or other services, please contact us by email: support (at) zestnut.com.

Game data

We use tools and platforms provided by other companies to create, distribute and update our games. This requires us to share data about you with them.

Google Play store and games services

Currently we distribute our games only for Android, through Google Play store. We use Google Play Games services to provide you achievements to unlock and leaderboards to compete on. For these features, you can choose to sign in with your Google Play Games account / Gamer ID in the game. Our games currently do not save your progress in the Google Play Games services cloud. Google has their own policy on how they collect and use your account data: https://policies.google.com/privacy

Unity services

We build our games with the Unity game engine, and use their advertising and analytics services. In their own words, Unity collects data to help game developers improve your player experience with ads and game play.

We let you view ads in certain game play situations to get in-game rewards. We use Unity Ads service for this. It collects data about you to personalize the ads for you.

Unity Analytics is a service that lets us see numbers about what the players do in a game. This includes how often players play the game, how long an average session takes, which levels or characters are played most often, etc. By interpreting these numbers we can update the game to feel more fun for you.

Some of the data collected by Unity services is personally identifiable. You can manage your data and opt-out from providing it. You should be able to do this in the first ad you see in our game, as the Unity Ads service has an automatic feature for it. Your choice affects your data in both Unity Ads and Analytics. You can read Unity’s Privacy Policy here: https://unity3d.com/legal/privacy-policy

We do not store the game data provided by these third parties anywhere else, and do not share it with anyone else.

Game data saved locally on your device

Our games save their gameplay data locally on your device. This means the overall progress you have made in the game. You can erase this data from the Settings – Apps menu in your Android device.

In addition to these methods, we do not collect or store any other in-game data about you.

Other personal data

You may voluntarily choose to provide us personal information about yourself when reporting bugs to us, participating in playtesting queries, or giving us feedback via email. We collect and use this information to improve the quality of our games and our relationship with you. We do not share this data with anyone but the organizations that provide us the services we use to communicate with you. We do not store this data anywhere else apart from these services.

We use Google’s services, such as Google Forms, to collect voluntary feedback from players. Regarding these services, you can view Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en
