1: Ad Removal – Ad Removal is an In App Purchase only option for most if not all games and applications published by Blinkin Studios. Ad Removal removes the ads for a purchase price, from displaying in a game or application. Due to some recent confusion, it must be clarified that the purchase does NOT remove the entire Admob extension from the game .. some spyware tracking programs will then report (FALSELY!) that there are ads in the game still. Technically this is true but really it is NOT as I will explain: It simply is not possible to remove that entire Admob SDK out of the game package (it’s included as a whole) …. that would be like ripping apart the whole game and trying to piece it back together and .. the whole thing would just break or there would have to be two separate programs and a MUCH greater cost to you. We’re not Apple, we’re not going there. So in closing, Ad Removal only prevents ads from displaying.
2: What we use, what we see, what we don’t see etc – Nothing. WE, Blinkin Studios, do NOT collect any information from the user. Period. We’re not interested in it, we don’t want it. ( We do want ad revenue but that goes through Google Admob )
That’s not to say that GOOGLE, or ADMOB, do not! Please do not misunderstand! Please see Google Admob’s provacy policy for more information.
3: User information – Google Play services – Some games are starting to use Google Play services such as Leaderboards. This is information that is controlled by YOU. You don’t have to use it and can deny it if you want. I’m still learning how to implement leaderboards and achievements, so this is still developing. Again, Blinkin Studios is uninterested in selling your information.
4: User information – Billing and payments – The only information that is shared between Google Wallet and Blinkin Studios is an amount of the transaction, a postal code and an order number. All other information such as names, addresses, phone numbers, that’s strictly confidential between you and Google Wallet or your mobile company, of which I see nothing.
