During your visit to the Website, we do not gather any personal information about you except when you buy our products. In such case, orders will be processed by our e-commerce partners. They will collect the information required to process the payment through a secure connection. You can read their privacy policies on their respective websites.
When a payment is processed, the e-commerce company will provide us only the necessary information to fulfill and identify your order: Name, e-mail and, in some cases, postal address. We do not sell or share or rent any information that we receive from you or from our e-commerce partners to third parties. Our e-commerce partners never provide us any financial information (we never have access to your credit card data or banking account).
The information we keep is your name, email (or emails, if you’ve changed it over time), in a few cases (when it is provided with the order), the postal address, and the purchase history. We store that information on our local computers (ciphered) and only to keep track of the purchases, this way we can recover information we may need for customer support.
Since version 5.8, BrainsBreaker provides control of products you purchased directly in the program. To achieve this, it connects to our server in the cloud. In that server, we do not store any personal data. To identify a user on that server, we generate a unique identifier that is a random string of numbers and letters with no resemblance to the original email address (this is named technically a “hash”). This way the program can know the products and offers you are entitled to but someone accessing that server can not deduct any personal information.
BrainsBreaker computes a score of the games you play. Unless you opt-out, this score will be publicly visible on the web and will display the status of the game. In order to have some non-personal identification, you can set a fictional or real name in the Alias. This is the name that will be displayed in the public rankings.
In the program’s options, you can opt-out of the access the server. Or you can only opt out of the sharing of scores.
You can optionally subscribe to receive notifications of future updates or news of our software. The email address you provide will be used only for this purpose. The service is provided and managed by a third party service, FeedBurner.
This website can use Google Analytics to anonymously track of the website's usage. The tracking helps us to know things like, for example, how many people are visiting us, or from which operating system. You can prevent the collection of these data by downloading and installing this browser plug-in.
Previous versions of BrainsBreaker also use Google Analytics for a better knowledge of how the users interact with the program. All the information is always anonymous and helps us to know things like how many people are using the program or what options are the most used. You can check if your version is using it by visiting the General Options in BrainsBreaker (pressing F3): if there is the option "Block app usage statistics" it means your version is using that feature. If the option is there, you can opt-out of tracking by checking that option.
