Our Online Games and Apps
With the exception of the webpages that house our Online Games, our Sites are designed to provide information to parents and other adults about our Online Games and Apps, and you must be at least eighteen (18) years of age or older in order to use our Sites.
In accordance with COPPA, we will never knowingly solicit Personal Information from users known to be under thirteen (13) years of age without first obtaining parental consent. Where Ecocarrier later discovers that a user is under the age of thirteen (13), Ecocarrier reserves the right to take any action it deems necessary, including, without limitation, obtaining parental consent or restricting access.
Any Personal Information we collect from children under thirteen (13) years of age will be used for internal purposes only.
Conflict of Terms
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
In the course of providing the Services to you and your child, we collect certain information. Some of the information is information you voluntarily provide to us, such as a name or an email address for optional registration in an App or to contact us through our Sites. Other information we automatically collect as you use the Services, such as your IP address, unique device identifier, advertising identifier, app set identifier, login activities, app interaction information, game session information, match attributes, in-app purchase information, and diagnostic information related to the performance of the app, such as crash logs, app launch time, hang rate, and energy usage. We make efforts to collect only the minimum amount of information we need from you in furtherance of our legitimate interest of providing you with the Services, and in order to improve the Services. Your information will only be used for internal purposes.
Automatic Collection: We may use commonplace technologies, such as cookies and other technologies, to better understand our users’ interactions with the Services. These technologies help us to keep track of user behaviour, tell us which parts of our Services people have visited and are using, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of certain activities. We may also collect data related to the device on which a Site or an App is loaded. In particular, we use third-party analytics services, such as Google Analytics and Unity Analytics. They store this data securely and do not share it with anyone else. Additionally, if the option is available to us, we use a restricted version of their analytics product designed for use with apps for children or families. This means the anonymous data they generate from our Apps is not used anywhere else in their system. Rather, the data they generate (such as information on App crashes, usage time, games played and programs missed) is only used internally by us to improve our Apps.
Volunteered Collection: When you register with us, create an account, send us an email or provide other information to us in any other way, we will collect and store the information you share. You do not have to share this information with us, but without it, we may not be able to provide you with some of the features and functionality of the Services. For example, if you create an account on an App, you can safeguard the work you create on that App, access your work across multiple devices, and allow multiple people to use the App on the same device. Information collected from our Services is used for internal purposes to provide and improve the Services, and for the use and benefit of the users only.
Third-Party Partners: Our Services may use third-party partners like Google Analytics, Google Adsense, Google Admob, KIDOZ and Unity Services (collectively, the “Partner Services”) for marketing and data analytics purposes.
The Partner Services do not collect or transmit any identifiable information about children (such as name, date of birth, email address), their location, or their devices.
We do not advertise on our Sites. For our Online Games and Apps, if we advertise, we only use contextual advertising with Partner Services that do not collect any Personal Information for advertising purposes. This is also known as zero-data advertising technology. Our Online Games and Apps do not use behavioural advertising, retargeting or user profiling. We use a restricted version of the Partner Services designed for advertising to children or families. Our third-party contextual advertising practices and policies for apps for children include human review of ad creatives for age appropriateness by playing through the Online Games and Apps periodically to view the ads to verify that the ads are still appropriate for children.
Publicly Posted: Although our Services do not provide this feature, our marketplace partners listed at https://www.w5go.com/w5go-app-stores.html may allow users to post information on its public forums. If you post information on such public forums, that information is visible to and may be collected, stored and used by anyone. We recommend that you be cautious about what information you share in such public forums. We are not responsible or liable for any loss or damage whatsoever for your participation in such public forums.
Credit Cards: For our Online Games and some of our Apps, there is no purchase necessary to play. For some of our other Apps, a purchase may be required. There may also be optional in-app purchases for accessing additional features and functions available in our Apps. When you make a purchase, the order process may request credit card and other payment information. Such information is collected and processed directly by the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, Itch, or Steam, as the case may be, so we do not have access to your information. We do not collect, process or store any of your credit card or other payment information during the billing process.

We use industry standard SSL (secure socket layer technology) encryption to transfer Personal Information. Other security safeguards include, but are not limited to, data encryption, firewalls and other access controls.
