Synkt Games respects the privacy of children of all ages.

NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
As part of the registration process to create a TAKA account or to participate in Sweepstakes, you may be asked to provide certain information that does not personally identify you. For example, you may be asked to provide information concerning your entertainment preferences, purchasing habits, and the like. Synkt Games requests this information in order to enhance your online experience by understanding you better and to also make you aware of new services, programs or offers which may be of interest to you.
In general, you can browse the Mobile App while remaining anonymous. However, in many cases, if you wish to interact on the Mobile App, Synkt Games will collect certain non-personally identifiable information about your use of the Services. For example, Synkt Games might collect information concerning the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you are using, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your "click path" through the TAKA Mobile App, the website or advertisement from which you linked to the TAKA Mobile App, and/or the website that you go to when leaving the TAKA Mobile App. In order to do this, Synkt Games may use several technologies and perform system checks when a user visits the Mobile App. Examples of such technologies are cookies (as described below), transparent gifs, frames, server log analysis, and other technologies as they are developed. All technologies implemented on the Mobile App are used to enhance the user experience.
As discussed above, in general, Synkt Games uses information to improve and enhance your experience. However, from time to time, Synkt Games may share this information with other entities in an aggregate, non-personally identifiable form to show general demographic and preference information among users of the TAKA Mobile App.
