What we collect from the Site

Psyon Games Oy is a data controller and collects personal data about you for any of three reasons:

  1. Serving you directly. Our Products need some information to serve you, such as your IP address. The game requires information on your device type, ID, orientation, and these may be sent to us. To provide game services such as high scores and cloud save, we also need to link your information to your accounts, these features are optional.

  2. To meet our obligations under the law, such as correctly filing income reports, taxes, etc

  3. To analyse how you interact with our Products, market our Products, ensure the security of our Products, and to identify problems in our Products. On both the Site and in the Game, we track things you do, like tapping buttons or getting killed by a bacteria.

As you “pass through” – required to provide basic services when you view our webpages, we collect:

  • Masked IP address

  • Date and time of the request

  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

  • Content of the request (what webpage you want)

  • Access status / HTTP status code

  • Respective size of transferred data

  • Website the request has come from

  • Browser

  • Operating system and its interface

  • Language and version of the browser software

How we use data

What we collect from Antidote

When you install Antidote, Google collects stuff on you that we can see. This includes your device type, date of install, language, and some other stuff. This data is not personally identifiable and is only visible to us in aggregate.

Antidote is built with Unity. As part of its operation, Unity sends data to the Unity servers, including device ID, type, and other stuff (for a full list, check Unity’s privacy policy). When you launch Antidote, Unity will immediately communicate certain information about your configuration to the Unity servers. This data is extremely useful to us developing the game, as it allows us to ensure we support your device and detect problems early, without you having to do anything. Once you start the game, you can make yourself invisible by sending a do not track request via the settings menu.

If you choose to, in addition to Unity Analytics, the game may send data to our analytics solution. This system is opt-in, and transmits information on how you play the game to our secure servers, so that we can better improve the game experience. This includes information such as when you win or lose a level, and how you play the game.

Antidote also includes social features, such as the high scores board. By default these services work using a non-reversible unique ID based on your device information. If you choose to sign in and associate your unique ID with an account or nickname, you must accept the Playfab privacy policy in addition to this one.

We use the personal information you submit to operate, maintain, customise, and provide to you the features and functionality of our Products.

By providing Psyon Games with your email address or mobile phone number, you consent to our using the email address or mobile phone number to contact you. Effectively, if you call us, we need to be able to call you back. If you subscribe to our mailing list, we’ll send you emails. These emails may contain cute pictures of viruses and bacteria. If you don’t like our emails, there’s a one click unsubscribe.

We may use certain information about you internally for purposes such as analysing how the Site is used, diagnosing service or technical problems, maintaining security, and personalising content.

We may generate and disclose aggregated and anonymised information statistics relating to User Account and Site information for marketing purposes, or in order to provide you with broad statistics as part of personalising your service. However, we will ensure that aggregated statistics do not identify individual Users.

Psyon Games reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor the information you create in/on our Products. We reserve the right to remove any such information or material for any reason or no reason, including without limitation if in our sole opinion such information or material violates, or may violate, any applicable law, or to protect or defend our rights or property or those of any third party. We also reserve the right to remove information upon the request of any third party.

We use cookies, clear gifs, and log file information to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the site; (b) provide custom, personalised content and information; (c) monitor the effectiveness of our Service; and (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns.

What information we share

We do not rent, sell, or share personal information with other people or companies except when we have your permission.

We will not rent or sell your personally identifiable information to others. We may share your personally identifiable information with third parties for the purpose of providing the Service to you. If we do this, such third parties’ use of your information will be bound by this Privacy Policy. We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of Psyon Games (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).

As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer or assign such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution. We will never sell personal information as part of the everyday process of running Psyon Games, but it may be transferred as part of the sale, merger, or dissolution of our Games or Psyon Games. In the event that this occurs, we will do our best to notify Users before any personal information is transferred, allowing you to opt-out of this transfer and delete your Account in advance.

Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Site or Game, such as High Score identifiers, becomes available to the public.

Third-parties with whom we share personal information

We use WordPress to deliver our website experience.

We MailChimp to manage subscriptions to our mailing list. We only add you to the mailing list if you ask us to.

We use Unity3D as the core of our Game. This includes using Unity analytics.

How we collect and handle data

Our primary tool for data protection is not to collect anything we don’t need. We attempt to keep information about you separate (e.g. your game and website experience), and we minimize the amount of information we store about you. For example, we mask IP addresses and minimize our data retention policies where possible.

We use commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information and implement your privacy settings. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to the Site or guarantee that your information on the Site may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. We limit access to personal information about you to employees who reasonably need access in order to provide services to you or in order to ensure the Site continues to operate without issue. Your privacy settings may also be affected by changes to the functionality of our distributors, such as social networks. Psyon Games is not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third party.

You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from the Site, at all times.

You may request to delete information we hold on you by contacting us. When deleting your information, we will do everything possible to ensure complete erasure. However, we may keep your information for a commercially reasonable period, for backup and archival purposes. Your personal information will remain confidential and secure throughout this period.

To request data deletion, please contact our Data Protection Officer (see below)
