We may also collect information about your preferences, such as your game genre preferences, your time zone, gaming console, occupation, the country where you reside, how many hours per week you play games, when you are available to playtest, and any other information you choose to provide.

Information We Collect Automatically When You Interact with Us

We collect some information automatically when you access or use our Platform. We may aggregate this data and use it in statistical form to determine trends among groups of users, rather than using it to identify individuals. If a combination of information that we collect does identify you as an individual, we will treat the combined information as personal information.

  • Information Collected by Cookies and Similar Tracking Technologies: We (and our service providers) use tracking technologies, such as cookies and web beacons, to collect information about you. Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory that help us improve our Platform and your experience, see which areas and features of our Platform are popular, and count visits. Web beacons (also known as “pixel tags” or “clear GIFs”) are electronic images that we use on our Platform and in our emails to help deliver cookies, count visits, and understand usage and campaign effectiveness. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, see the Your Choices section below.

Information We Derive

We may derive information or draw inferences about you based on the information we collect. For example, we may make inferences about your location based on your IP address or infer that you are looking to purchase certain products based on your browsing behavior.

 

USE OF INFORMATION

We allow others to provide analytics services and serve advertisements on our behalf across the web and in mobile apps.

TRANSFER OF INFORMATION TO THE UNITED STATES AND OTHER COUNTRIES

ProbablyMonsters is headquartered in the United States, and we may have operations and service providers in the United States and other countries.
