Please note that free apps are ad-supported.

In this case, if the app is for purchase, then it will be an advertisement-free product.

This page is used to inform visitors regarding policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information if anyone decided to use my Service.

If you choose to use Sparrow apps, then you agree to the collection and use of information concerning this policy via Google Play and if there are ads, then Admob too. The Personal Information that Google Play may collect is used for providing and improving the app. Sparrow uses the Google Play platform which collects your information.

For In-App Purchases

All in-app purchases are conducted within Google Play and follow Google Play guidelines. Please visit Google Play and review Google Play terms and conditions regarding in-app purchases.

Log Data

Please note that whenever you use android applications from Sparrow, provided on Google Play Store, in a case of an error in the app Google Play collects data and information on your phone device called Log Data. This Log Data may include information such as your device Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, device name, operating system version, the configuration of the app when utilizing an app, the time and date of your use of the app, and other statistics. This information is collected by Google Play and Admob Google if there are ads on an application.

Cookies

Cookies are files with a small amount of data that are commonly used as anonymous unique identifiers. These are sent to your browser from the websites that you visit and are stored on your device’s internal memory. Also, analytics information could be collected such as the location for app usability purposes and user interface purposes. Sparrow does not collect these cookies on apps, but Google Play and Admob Google do.

Apps on Google Play may or may not use these “cookies” explicitly. However, the app may use third-party code and libraries that use “cookies” to collect information and improve their services. At this time Google Play collects cookies. Sparrow is unaware if there are options to either accept or refuse these cookies on apps. Sparrow provides only game apps and does not collect cookies. Google Play mentioned that they may introduce this option, but it is not possible to do it on game developer programs just yet nor on Google Play. Sparrow does not know when a cookie is being sent to your device from Google Play.

If you choose to refuse Google Play cookies, at this point there are no options, however, you may switch off permissions on your device. Sparrow does not know if your device still communicates with Google Play when the permissions are turned off, please visit Google Play and Admob Google for these questions and pose these questions directly.

Sparrow may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons:

  • To facilitate our Game Apps and Apps – such as the Google Play platform
  • To provide the Game Apps and Appson our behalf;
  • To perform Game Apps and Apps-related services; or
  • To assist us in analyzing how Game Apps and Apps are used

-Thus far, it was Google Play and Admob, however, if other programs should be used, their privacy policies will be added.

Please be advised that these third parties may have access to your Personal Information, such as cookies. The reason is to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf. However, they are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose.  At this point, only Google Play and Admob Google are involved in processing information and Sparrow does not want to collect your personal information.
