Last Updated: February 2014

Key Points in Plain English

1. No Third Party Ads: We never place advertising from other companies in our apps or website.

2. No Personally Identifiable Data: No personally identifiable information is collected in our apps such as name, email or address. We do collect anonymous device information solely to support the proper working of the app.

3. Disabled Web Links: All links out of our apps are disabled by default. The links are for grown-ups and are there to provide necessary information and ways to get in touch.

4. Data & Plug-Ins: For development purposes, we use aggregated and anonymous information about app usage and app performance that is provided by a third party app data service called ‘Flurry Restricted’. We are confident this is a COPPA Compliant plug-in. See www.coppa.org for more info on COPPA.

5. In-App Purchase: The Dragon Shapes app contains one in-app purchase accessed within a gated ‘Grown-ups’ area. The in-app purchase unlocks the full version which includes all 50 puzzles. The purpose is to allow families to try the app before deciding to purchase. We don’t believe in hidden, misleading or child-targeted in-app purchases.
