We may associate an IDFA (iOS) or Advertiser ID (Android) with Personal Information or with other persistent device identifiers (for example, MAC address, or IMEI) at any time. We use this information to assist with understanding trends in usage and for help with tracking and correcting errors, to customize the user experience and make recommendations to you. We may also give you the opportunity to opt-in to location-based services, which utilize a device's GPS coordinates. You may opt-out of these location services via the settings on your device.
We may also install certain software development kits ("SDKs") in the Services. These SDKs may collect your IDFA (iOS) and/or Advertiser ID (Android) and certain other data, including but not limited to IP address, geo-location and operating system (“OS”) information. This information may be used to calculate marketing conversion rates and other elements of advertising performance.
Our games or products may be advertised in other applications. After clicking on one of these advertisements and installing our game, you will become a user of the Services. In order to prevent fraud and verify the installs, your IDFA (iOS) and/or Advertiser ID (Android) may be shared with the advertiser.

Paradox restricts authorized access to your Personal Information to those persons who have a legitimate purpose to access it. Paradox also has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control (e.g., verification of a user’s identity through username and password). Please be aware, however, that any e-mail or other transmission you send through the Internet cannot be completely protected against unauthorized interception, and it is your sole responsibility to protect the secrecy of your password.
