Our Services may change over time and we may introduce new features that may collect new or different types of information.
When you use any of the Tatum Games’ games on a mobile platform, we may record certain information and data, such as your application usage, access, session times, in-app purchases, your unique device ID (persistent / non-persistent), hardware type, media access control ("MAC") address, international mobile equipment identity ("IMEI"), the version of your operating system ("OS"), your device name, your email address (if you have connected to Facebook or Google+), and your location (based on your Internet Protocol ("IP") address).

Other players in our games may then be able to see that you are available to play when you participate in specific areas of our games. Please note, participation in this part of the Service is not a requirement for all gameplay in our games, but it may be a requirement, for example, to participate in local gameplay with others in your area.
