We are strong privacy advocates here at Egghead Games. We do not have advertisements in our apps, and thus have no motivation to find or retain any information about you.
We have gradually modified our apps over time so that current versions, except for Android & Kindle Logic Puzzle apps (see next paragraph), use no 3rd-party tracking libraries or tools that contain such libraries (like Google Analytics or Facebook Login). We do not collect any analytics from our apps, relying instead on the default anonymized analytics provided by each app store. All purchases are made through the app stores, and they retain your credit card or other payment information. We never have access to that.
Android and Kindle Logic Puzzle apps still use Facebook Login if you enable Cloud Sync for puzzles. We do not retain any of the information provided by that login, except for a ‘token’ that allows us to uniquely identify your account for syncronizing your data. We plan to remove this service and replace it with Google & Kindle syncing services, just as we have done with iOS already.
