- Information Collection and Use
OpenFeint collects information as described below. OpenFeint uses information that we collect to create your account, fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our website, products and services, contact you, conduct research, create reports for internal use, and in the manners described below. Some specific types of information that OpenFeint may collect and use (directly or through our third party service providers) includes the following:
- From Developers. If you are a Developer, we may collect the following:
- From All Players (i.e., Open-Feint Players and Non-OpenFeint Players). If you are a Player of a Game, we may collect the following:
Device-Specific Information. Device-specific information includes the following information about a Player’s device: the unique device id assigned to your phone on iOS (but only if you are an Open-Feint Player), a device identifier associated with your device on Android, platform type and version (iOS v4, Android, etc.), hardware and processor type, screen resolution and human readable hardware name. Please note that for Android devices, OpenFeint stores your device hardware and OS information as soon as you start a Game, before you are presented with the option to enable OpenFeint’s services. We use this information to select appropriate art for the screen resolution, to identify your account to simplify sign-on, and to determine the hardware requirements of our Player base.
Game Feed. OpenFeint offers a game feed feature that publicly displays certain information about Games and Players of those Games (e.g., the high score winner of a Game, including his/her profile picture) ( “Game Feed” ). You will not be notified when this information is displayed. If a Developer uses Game Feed, we collect information about all of the Developer’s Players (including OpenFeint Players and Non-OpenFeint Players). We will collect the number of times the Players see the Game Feed UI, the buttons the Player clicks on, how long it took the Game Feed to load and how many times each event in Game Feed (a “Feed Item” ) was viewed.
- From OpenFeint Players. If you are a OpenFeint Player we may collect the following:
Registration Information. When you register for the OpenFeint service, we will ask you to create a user id and may ask for other information such as your email address, Twitter® credentials, Facebook® credentials, and friends on the OpenFeint service which you may provide at your discretion This information may be linked with your UDID or unique device id. When you register with OpenFeint and sign in to the OpenFeint services, you are not anonymous to us. A OpenFeint Player has the capability to search for another OpenFeint Player on Twitter® or Facebook®. We do not store the search information.
Your Player Record. Your player record includes your user name, access group, online and chat status, last played Game and score, other Game achievements (for example, high scores) and profile picture (collectively, the “Player Record” ). This Player Record is automatically created for every OpenFeint Player. This information is used to identify you as a Player and is visible to other Players when they access your profile.
Game-Specific Information. Game-specific information is information about each Player and the Game they are playing. This information includes Game, user id, device hardware, total dashboard launches and duration, total online Game sessions and duration, country code and IP address. We share Game-specific information in aggregated form with Developers. Such aggregated information may include, for example, how many unique Players logged in on a given day, how many Game sessions were played and how many Players have unlocked a specific achievement.
Chat and Discussion-Related Information. For each chat/instant message, this information includes Player and Game ID and the text and time stamps of the message. For each forum discussion thread and related posts, this information includes the subject, the author’s user ID, the user who posted last and time stamps. We use this information to moderate forums, chat rooms and instant messaging communications. Information you post in forums, chat rooms and instant messaging communications are publicly available and other people may see it.
Virtual Goods Purchase Information. Virtual goods purchase information includes device ID (including UDID), currency type and exchange rate, country location, product identifier, item ID and quantity. We use this information to store your inventory on our servers so you can later retrieve it from another device; when this inventory changes we record and store the type and quantity of the items that have changed. We also share with Developers how many Players have purchased each specific virtual goods item, as well as how much money they have made in total from each specific virtual goods item. A Developer may have access to a specific Player’s virtual goods items, which the Developer is allowed to edit.
Analytics Data. When you click or look at certain items, we store the data and use it for our internal analytics to improve our products and services. This includes that you viewed a Game page in the Services or clicked to install a Game in the Services. This information also includes the session ID, user ID (if logged in to OpenFeint), total play time (across all Game sessions) and session length (time of specific Game session).
