We also use your PII for the following business purposes:

We use DII to operate our Services and manage user sessions, including analyzing usage of our Services, preventing malicious behavioral and fraud, improving the content, to link your identity across devices and browsers in order to provide you with a more seamless experience online and helping third parties provide relevant advertising and related metrics. We share DII with third parties primarily for advertising and analytics purposes, for external processing, and for security purposes

Third-Parties

While we strive to work with reputable companies with good privacy practices, this Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including products or sites that may be displayed to you on the Services. We also do not control the privacy policies and your privacy settings on third-party sites, including social networks. We may use third parties to help offer you more tailored ads and better Services, such as obtaining analytics about the users of our site and to help tailor advertising to your preferences. For further information, please see the relevant privacy policies for each third party and industry codes of conduct.

Choice

Like many other companies, we do not honor DNT flags but instead, offer other choices with respect to third parties. Many third parties participate in self-regulation to offer you a choice regarding receiving targeted ads. Please note that you’ll still see generic ads after opting out, but they won’t be based on your activities online. On the web, you can opt-out of participating companies by visiting the following sites:

If you wish to similarly opt-out of cross-app advertising on mobile devices, you can enable the Limit Ad Tracking flag on the device. Enabling Limit Ad Tracking sends a flag to third parties that you wish to opt-out of targeted advertising on that device, and major mobile platforms require companies to honor this flag. Screenshots on how to find these options on various devices are available here: http://www.networkadvertising.org/mobile-choices. To opt-out of geolocation data tracking, Google Analytics offers an add-on to prevent tracking across all sites and can be downloaded here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/181881. To learn how to opt-out on other devices, please visit the platform’s privacy policies for more information.

Information security

We work hard to protect our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold and undertake reasonable security measures with appropriate confidentiality, integrity, and availability protections. However, since no software or storage system is 100% secure, we cannot guarantee for the security of your information associated with the Services, or any other service for that matter. You can help protect your account information by using unique and hard-to-guess passwords. We retain data for the maximum amount of time allowable under applicable law.

Children Under 13

Certain Services are directed at children for entertainment and education purposes only. Our collection of personal information on Services that are directed to children under 13 (“Children’s Platform”) is intended to follow the principles of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), a U.S. law designed to protect the online privacy of children under the age of 13. We will obtain parental consent before asking for personal information on our Children’s Platform, unless the request for information falls within an exception that would be permitted under COPPA. Because we do not transfer any of your child’s personal information to any third parties for any use aside from maintaining the internal operation of the Game or otherwise allow for your child’s personal information to be shared publicly, we use the “Email Plus” method of consent except where there is an exception permitted under COPPA.

We do not make personal information collected from children publicly available, nor do we enable children to do so on our Services. We will not condition a child’s participation in any activity or service on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity. Parents may contact us (at privacy@skillsgapp.com) to review, update or delete any of their children’s personal information that we may have collected and to elected for us not to collect any additional personal information from their children.

Changes

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will post any Policy changes on this page and within the settings of any mobile apps. Please check back periodically to view changes to our privacy policy. We will not change how we handle previously collected information without providing notice and obtaining parental consent where necessary.
