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.

We currently do not collect, store, or otherwise have access to any personal data or personally identifiable information from people that play our game. Any storage of data is for the sole purpose of the game to function properly, via services from Apple Inc. who distribute Monomals. Picomy does not have access to any data stored via these services.

Data collected – Apple data

The game collects the following data from players. None of this data is accessible by Picomy or by any third party. The only storage of player data is handled by Apple.

1. Information relating to the game is stored locally on the player’s device and also in Apple iCloud. This data includes information about a player’s progress through the game and is necessary for players to be able to continue their game where they last stopped playing. This data is not stored by or accessible to Picomy.

2. Apple Game Center collects information relating to Game Center achievements and leaderboards, which are accessed from a player’s local device and shared on Apple iCloud.

3. Device name data is collected by the game and stored by Apple Inc. in a player’s personal iCloud account in order to resolve conflicts between saved games by a single user on different devices. This data is not stored by or accessible to Picomy.

Data collected – song data

Right now, when you play Monomals no other data is processed. We do plan to store song data with Amazon Ltd (Ireland) in the near future. When we do, we will update this privacy notice.

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.

Disclosures to third parties

Picomy does not disclose to third parties any data relating to the game. Song data is stored on your device.

Data retention

Picomy does not retain or store player data. As long as a player has an active Game Center 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.

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. As a result, they will not appear on leaderboards.

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, including those younger than 16 (for some EU players) or 13 (for some other EU players, and players in the U.S.). Picomy has limited the way in which data is collected to ensure compliance with the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection (COPPA) guidelines for the appropriate use of information collection and access to children’s personal information. If you have any questions or concerns relating to your child’s use of our app please contact us through one of the options provided at the bottom of this page. You can learn more about COPPA and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act at www.coppa.org

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

We do not store any personal data and so there is no personal data to transfer to other countries.

Your Rights

You have the right to request access to your personal data that we process. You also have the right to:

If you wish to exercise any of the above rights, please write us at [email protected]. We will respond to all requests within a reasonable timeframe, but at least within 4 weeks. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with your local EU data protection authority for unresolved complaints.

Note that where Apple processes your personal data, you have to request the above with Apple.
