Privacy Policy

We value your privacy as much as we value our own.

Information that we collect

  • Account Information - when you sign up for an account, we ask for your name and email address. We use this information to identify you and your account. Some products and services do not require an account, but signing in may provide a more consistent experience across multiple sessions or on multiple devices. We may ask you for optional account information. If you provide it, we will store it and may use it to help us provide you with a better experience.
  • Third-party Login - When you login to Puzzazz through another service, some information from that service may be transferred to Puzzazz. We use this information to identify you and your account.
  • Cookies - We use cookies and/or other identifiers to keep track of individual users so that each user receives a customized experience using our products and services. If you are not signed in, any such tracking is anonymous.
  • Logs - We log information about how our products and services are used in order to improve our products and services or to improve the experience we offer you.

What we do with the information

We use information that identifies you only in ways that you authorize, to provide or improve the products and services we offer you, or to help us aggregate data.

We use aggregate data to maintain and improve our products and services in many ways, including understanding how our products and services are used. We may share aggregate usage data with business partners and third parties.

We share personal information with other parties outside of Puzzazz only in the following limited circumstances:

  • We have your consent.
  • We provide information to some trusted third-party businesses or individuals for the purpose of processing information on our behalf subject to this privacy policy.
  • We provide information to some content partners whose content you have purchased.
  • We have a good faith belief that sharing is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law or legal governmental request, (b) detect, prevent, or otherwise address security issues, technical issues, harm to the rights, property or safety of Puzzazz or the public, or violations of any applicable Terms of Service.

Your statistics

Puzzazz provides some features which allow you to track your solving statistics and share some or all of these statistics with others. We treat such statistical information specially.

  • You do not need to be a registered user to solve puzzles, but some features may require you to be registered and logged in (for example, if you wish to track your solving statistics).
  • When you add a friend, you are giving us permission to share your solving statistics with them.
  • When you login to Puzzazz through another service, we may share information with your connections on that service. You can opt out of this sharing at any time.
  • Some limited statistics may be shared publicly (for example, on a leader board). You can opt out of public sharing at any time.

We don't like spam

  • We send a limited number of emails to our mailing list.
  • We don't send off-topic emails.
  • When we send email, it is short and to the point.
  • We don't allow our mailing list to be used by others.
  • You can opt out of our mailing list at any time.
  • We won't provide your email address to third parties except as described above.

Third-party services

Puzzazz may store data on servers maintained by third party providers. We only use providers that agree to maintain a level of service consistent with this privacy policy.

Puzzazz uses some services from third-party companies, including product images and advertising. These companies may use information about your usage of our products, services, and web sites in order to tailor information, including advertisements about goods and services, to your interests. These companies are not provided with any personal information which you provide directly to us. To learn more about this practice and to understand your privacy choices, please visit the web sites of Amazon, Apple, Flurry, and Google.

Applicability

In the context of this policy, "Puzzazz" includes parties authorized by Puzzazz to access the data, including subsidiaries, affiliated companies or other trusted businesses or persons. This policy may change from time to time. The current version is always available on the privacy policy page on the Puzzazz web site at http://www.puzzazz.com/privacy. If a change to this policy reduces your privacy rights, then that change will take effect thirty days after it is published on our web site. If Puzzazz becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, information may be transferred to an acquiring party and may become subject to a new privacy policy.
