This is my personal attempt to tell you what we collect in short form. The bottom line is we leave some cookies and local data on your machine in order to do things like track scores and game progress. At times we store some game related data on servers in order to provide save that data for later use. An example of this is when we had a “create your own layout” option for our Mahjong game. The layouts were saved to a server along with a description and title you provided. We use services from other organizations to build our web stack, and these organizations have access to your data as you use our website and have their own Privacy Policies that you should also look into for a full understanding.
We are currently working to remove all social tags (e.g. facebook like buttons) from our web sites. Until that process is complete pages that still have social tags will allow those social networks to track you on our websites.
We use Google to provide our Advertising through Google Adsense, and on some websites we are using Google Analytics for usage analysis.
When you are using games on the BattleLine Games LLC. Website, Games, and other Apps there are many different ways you generate and share information with us. In addition you may also be sharing information with other organizations such as Google and we will list the other privacy policies that you should read in order to understand how they use your personal data.
Information you give us. In some games and services you provide us with information concerning the game. An example of this is our “build your own layout” tool. This information is stored in a database so that others can play the layout you created.
Information we get from your use of our services. We use Amazon Web Services and GoDaddy to host our web servers. Those services provide us access to quite a bit of data. We use that data to try and provide better service.
We've used information related to screen size, and browser type to provide a better experince for users with different screen sizes.
BattleLine Games does not host it's own web servers. We use Amazon Web Services and GoDaddy to provide us with web servers, and those services are logging information that includes:
device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
We collect information locally required for the games and apps you are playing. This data includes information like high scores, best times, game coins accumulated and other information used to improve experience.
We do not currently collect personal information. Log data collected by our web hosting providers (Amazon and GoDaddy) could potentially be used to personally identify you. Unfortunately we do not control the use of that information. It is also possible information collected by Google for placing ads and analyitics could be used to personally identify you. You will need to consult the privacy policies of our vendors (links provided at top of page) to understand how they manage your data.
Most of the information we collect is stored locally on your machine and is not aggregated or shared. You can configure your browser to block cookies to prevent the storing of this data, but it will have an effect on your user experience. Information collected to create personalized versions of your game is typically shared publicly, such as when you create a personalized version of our word search game. That word search is made public on the Internet to anyone who would like to play. Information collected by our vendors, Google for Ads and Analytics, Amazon and GoDaddy for web hosting may be shared by those companies with other vendors based on their own privacy policies.
We are currently in the process of removing all social tags (e.g. facebook like buttons) from our websites. Some pages may contain social tags that have not been removed yet. These social tags allow companies like facebook to track your progress through our site. For many reasons we have decided to remove these tags from our web pages. During this process, you may encounter social tags on some of our web pages.
BattleLine Games LLC, is currently in the process of transitioning from http to the more secure https protocol.
