Monomals and Privacy

Overview

We are Picomy B.V. and we make Monomals. We are based at Nieuwe Binnenweg 310 B, 3021 GV, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. You can contact us at [email protected] if you have questions about your privacy or data protection, or if you have any requests for resolving issues with your personal data.

Data collected – Apple data

The game collects the following data from players.

Data collected – song data

When you play Monomals no other data is processed as long as you do not share songs. When you choose to upload your song(s) to the Online Chart in Monomals, while signed in to Game Center, the following data will be stored on our servers:

  1. Your song(s) custom Midi Data (Composition content and song length).
  2. Your song(s) Animal DJ type. For instance: Retro Rabbit, Funky Frog or Techno Tiger.
  3. Your upload timestamp (when was your song uploaded).
  4. Your Song name - This name can be changed in the dropdown menu in the Monomaker.
  5. Your Artist name - This name is linked to your Game Center Profile Name. This means that when you decide to change your Game Center Name, the Artist name from previously uploaded songs won’t change. Changing your Game Center name will only have an effect on newly uploaded songs.
  6. Your vote(s) given to Online songs.

We cannot identify you on the basis of the information above, but other people may when they combine it with information they have. That is why we treat the song data as personal data.

We store the song data with Amazon Web Services, Inc..

Underage players: If you or the adult who created your Game Center ID set your age as underage, we do not send any data to our servers.

Who is affected

Monomals data relates only to players of the Monomals game.

What do we use the data for, and on what basis

We use the data to support the internal operations of the game, and our legitimate interest to offer you all the functionality of the Monomals game. When you use the online features to share song data, we base the processing of personal data on your consent.

Disclosures to third parties

Picomy does not disclose to third parties any data relating to the game.

When you save a song, we store song-data with Amazon Web Services, Inc.. Amazon is a processor acting on our behalf. For songs, we have access to your Apple Game Center ID, but not your name, and no way to easily associate your Game Center ID with other information that may identify you, like your IP address or payment data.

Data retention

As long as a player has an active game account, their data is stored in Apple’s iCloud system. This stored data ensures that players can continue playing the game where they most recently stopped playing and is used for no other purpose than to ensure the functioning of the game.

When you share songs, song data will be stored on our servers for as long as the Game will be live on the Apple Arcade Service.

Picomy does not retain or store any other player data.

Permission and declining or withdrawing permission for data

Players may decline to store data in iCloud or to send data to Game Center. To turn off iCloud data storage, they must turn off iCloud in Apple Settings for our game. As a result, they will only be able to play in single player offline mode. To stop sending data to Game Center, they must sign out of Game Center in Apple Settings.

Players may also decline to store data with us for online features such as Song Uploads and Song Votes. Not giving consent means that these online features are not available in the game.

Young players

Protecting the privacy of children is of the utmost important to us and we do our best to meet both EU and U.S. standards. The game has been designed to be family friendly and to be suitable for use by children.

If you or the adult who created your Game Center ID set your age as underage, we do not send any data to Apple or our servers.

Do Not Track

For our website, we do not track players over time or across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.

Protection of stored data

Taking into account the nature, scope, context and purpose of the processing, we have taken appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect such data.

Transfer of personal data

If you do not save any songs, we do not store any personal data and so there is no personal data to transfer to other countries.

When you share songs, we store your song data on servers in Ireland.
