We ask that you read this privacy notice carefully, as it contains important information on who we are, how and why we collect, store, use, and share personal information, your rights in relation to your personal information and on how to contact us and supervisory authorities in the event you have a complaint.

1. Who We Are

Wonga Studio (“Wonga Studio,” “We,” or “Us”) collects, uses and is responsible for certain personal information about you, as part of providing the Wonga Studio website and mobile applications (collectively, the “Service”).

For those in the European Union, we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union, and we are responsible as controller of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.

2. The Personal Information We Collect And Use

Information collected by us: In the course of providing you with the Service, we collect the following personal information, either automatically or when you explicitly provide it to us:

  • circle-icon

    Your IP address, browser type, and information about your gameplay and activities on the Service are collected automatically while you use the Service (your “Analytic Information”)

  • circle-icon

    Your unique Advertising ID

  • circle-icon

    Your name and email address, if you sign up for our newsletter

How we use your Personal Information: We use your personal information as follows:

  • circle-icon

    Your email address is used to communicate with you about Service-related issues (including receiving and responding to communications that you send us through the Service), and to send you Service-related communications about new products and services.

  • circle-icon

    Your Analytic Information is gathered and pooled with other users’ information, and used for the purposes of improving the Service, such as tracking the total number of users or visitors to the Service, their aggregate activities on the Service, gameplay data and other gameplay analytics, and tracking the sites that refer visitors to Wonga Studio.

  • circle-icon

    Your Advertising ID is used to display personalized advertisements on the Service (see Who we share your Personal Information with, below, for more information).

Who we share your Personal Information with: We share your Personal Information with certain third parties as part of our operation of the Service, whether shared by us or gathered directly by third parties through SDKs integrated into the Service. This data sharing enables us to provide you with the Service in the optimal way, such as serving you personalized, relevant advertisements within the Service.

Some of those third-party recipients may be based outside the European Economic Area — for further information, including how we safeguard your personal data when this occurs, see their individual privacy policies linked to below and the section entitled “Transfer of your Information out of the EEA,” below.

We share your Personal Information with the following third parties:

Advertisements: Some of your personal information, such as your Advertising ID, is gathered by advertisers to display advertisements on the Service that are relevant to your interests.

Our third-party advertisers are:

We may add and remove advertisers from this list from time to time.

If you would like more information about online advertising and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, please see: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp

Analytics: We may use third party website and mobile application analytic tools on the Service, that employ cookies and other tracking methods (such as tracking pixels) to collect certain information concerning your use of the Service. These tools include:

Newsletters: If you opt in to our newsletter, your name and email address may be shared with our newsletter provider, MailChimp.

Other Sharing:

We will share your Personal Information if we have a good faith belief that (i) access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, such as a court order or subpoena, or a request by law enforcement or governmental authorities, (ii) such action is necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues associated with the Service, or (iii) such action is appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of Wonga Studio, its employees, clients, or users of the Service.

How long your Personal Information will be kept: We will keep your Personal Information for the length of time required to provide you with the Service and for the reasons described in this privacy policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. Afterwards, we delete all aforementioned data in our possession within a reasonable timeframe. We do not verify the correctness of personal data that we collect or you provide.

Please note that some data may be retained if necessary to resolve disputes, enforce Wonga Studio user agreements, and comply with technical and legal requirements and constraints related to the security, integrity, and operation of the Service.

Reasons we can collect and use your Personal Information: The laws in some jurisdictions require that we notify you of the lawful basis for collecting your Personal Information.

To the extent that such laws apply, we rely on the following as the lawful basis on which we collect and use your personal information:

  • circle-icon

    Consent: At times we may collect, process, store, transfer or disclose your personal data on the basis of your implied or explicit consent.

  • circle-icon

    To fulfill our contractual obligations: In order to fulfill our contractual obligations to you, we must collect, process, and store your personal data and information. For example, we may handle your personal data in this manner if you make a purchase on the Service, though generally that personal data (including payment information) is solely collected by Google, Apple, Amazon, or other platform holders when you make the purchase through them, and is governed by their privacy policies.

  • circle-icon

    Furtherance of legitimate interests: We may collect, process, store, transfer or disclose your personal data in furtherance of those legitimate interests of ours which are not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms as set forth in the applicable laws. These legitimate interests include, but are not limited to, (i) providing you with the Service, (ii) protecting our users, staff, and property, (iii) collecting information on how you use the Service in order to optimize the design and functionality of the Service, (iv) display personalized advertisements, and (v) communicating with you via e-mail for communications you have explicitly opted into (e.g., notifications about new products and services) or for communications regarding the Service (e.g., customer service and troubleshooting).

  • circle-icon

    Legal compliance: We may collect, process, store, transfer or disclose your personal data to comply with our legal obligations.

  • circle-icon

    Depersonalized Information: We may make your Personal Information non-personally identifiable by either combining or aggregating it with information about other users, or by removing characteristics (such as your name or email address) that make the information personally identifiable. This process is known as de-personalizing your information and is used to analyze usage and improve the Service.

  • circle-icon

    Children’s Privacy: We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13, allow them to sign up for newsletters, make purchases, or use the Service. In addition, we may limit how we collect, use, and store some of the information of EU users between 13 and 16. Wonga Studio takes children’s privacy seriously and encourages parents to play an active role in their children’s online experience at all times. We urge parents to instruct their children never to give out their real names, addresses, or phone numbers, without parental permission, when online. If you have any concerns about your child’s personal information, please contact us at [email protected]

  • circle-icon

    Links to Other Sites: The Service may contain links to other sites and applications. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that site. These external services are not operated by us. Therefore, we strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of these websites and mobile applications. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party sites or services.

3. Transfer of your Information out of the EEA

Wonga Studio is based in the United States. No matter where you are located, you consent to the processing, transfer and storage of your information in and to the U.S., and other countries, in accordance with this privacy policy and the privacy policies of third parties with whom we share your Personal Information. The laws of the U.S. and other countries governing data collection and use may not be as comprehensive or protective as the laws of the country where you live.

If you would like further information, please contact us (see “How to contact us” below).

4. Your Rights

Under the laws of some jurisdictions, including the General Data Protection Regulation in the EEA, you have a number of important rights with regard to your Personal Information.

  • circle-icon

    By law, you can ask us what information we hold about you, and you can ask us to correct it if it is inaccurate. If we have asked for your consent to process your personal data, you may withdraw that consent at any time.

    If we are processing your personal data for reasons of consent or to fulfill a contract, you can ask us to give you a copy of the information in a machine-readable format so that you can transfer it to another provider.

  • circle-icon

    If we are processing your personal data for reasons of consent or legitimate interest, you can request that your data be erased.

    You have the right to ask us to stop using your information for a period of time, if you believe we are not doing so lawfully.

    Finally, in some circumstances, you can ask us not to reach decisions affecting you using automated processing or profiling.

For further information on each of those rights, including the circumstances in which they apply, see the Guidance from the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on individuals rights under the General Data Protection Regulation.

If you would like to exercise any of those rights, please email us at [email protected].

5. Keeping your Personal Information secure

We have taken steps to put appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorized way.

For example, we limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorized manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.

We use SSL encryption and other technologies to keep data safe when we transfer and store it.
