2. CATEGORIES AND USE OF INFORMATION
2.1 Account information
When you start engaging with our Platform, we collect information such as device model, OS and OS version. Additionally, our Game creates a randomized Unique Device ID (UDID). That UDID is unique to Hidden Secrets and allows us to associate all activities to a single device for sake of saving game progress and validating any prize claims.
2.2 Prize winner information
Prizes are subject to eligibility requirements, as set out in the Terms of Service. Upon winning a prize, Hidden Secrets will require you to submit your name, date of birth, address, zip/postal code, email, phone number, other legal and tax related information, along with any other information Hidden Secrets deems necessary to determine your eligibility and review and process the cash prize.
This information may be used for the purposes of:
1. Determining eligibility for accessing the Platform, playing the Game and/or claiming any cash prize;
2. in respect of the name, photo, voice, likeness information and statements about the game or winnings, for publicity and marketing, information, trade, advertising, public relations, and promotional purposes without any further compensation, notice, review or consent.
2.3 Gameplay Information
When you engage in the Platform, we will process:
1. information on how you use the Platform (such as the web pages that were visited prior to accessing the Platform; the pages or features of the Platform that were browsed and the time spent on those pages or features; search terms and the links on the Platform that were clicked on; and other group statistics); and
2. information that your device sends (like a device identifier, user settings, country, language, browser type, operating system, and location information (when location services are turned on),
and combine that information with the UDID. This information is used to improve gameplay and the Platform, to personalize the Platform for you, and for marketing purposes including direct marketing.
2.4 Email Subscription
If you elect to subscribe to our mailing list, we will collect your email address for the purposes of:
1. periodically sending you free newsletters and emails that directly promote the Platform; and
2. creating “Lookalike Audiences” and to customize content and advertising on social media websites such as Facebook.
You have the option to opt-out of receiving direct marketing communications from us. If you do not wish to continue to receive direct marketing communications from us you should opt-out by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in any email communications that we might send you. Please note that some features of the Platform may involve us providing suggestions for additional services we offer, through the functionality within the Platform.
2.5 Website Information Collected Using Cookies and other Web Technologies
Like many website owners and operators, we use automated data collection tools such as Cookies and Web Beacons to collect certain information on our website. Whether this information is personal to you will depend to what extent the technology can individuate you, in the sense that you are singled out and distinguished from all others.
2. “Web Beacons” (also known as web bugs, pixel tags, or clear GIFs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on the Platform for several purposes. For example, we may use Web Beacons to deliver or communicate with Cookies, to track and measure the performance of the Platform, to monitor how many visitors view our Platform, and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. Unlike Cookies, which are stored on the user’s hard drive, Web Beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages (or in an email). We use these web beacons, such as Facebook Pixel, to customize content and advertising, to provide social media features and to analyze traffic to our website.
3. LAWFUL BASIS FOR PROCESSING

In respect of the processing of information of your information for the purposes of providing the Platform, creating a UDID to associate all activities to a single device for sake of saving game progress and validating any prize claims, and discovering if you have falsified your claim to any such prizes, such processing is necessary for the performance of the contract between you and us.
