About Us

SuperSonic Studios Ltd. (“SuperSonic Studios”) develops and publishes game titles for mobile devices (each game title, “Title”).

We collect information in either of 2 ways:

Directly – through the Titles. For this purpose, we also engage with analytics partners that collect the information on our behalf.

Indirectly– through our advertising and analytics partners.

We collect information as described in this privacy policy for SuperSonic Studios own purposes, as a data controller under data protection law where relevant.

Scope

This privacy policy describes SuperSonic Studio’s privacy practices with respect to information it processes in relation to its Titles. This privacy policy does not govern the use of SuperSonic Studio’s website, and any additional services, which are governed by SuperSonic Studio’s website privacy policy available at https://supersonic.com/privacy-policy/.

The titles are available to users all around the world. Accordingly, throughout the document, we try to harmonize our approach and the language of the privacy policy as much as possible. However, sometimes we refer to specific laws that require further disclosures. For example,  whenever you see throughout the policy the annotation “The GDPR angle”, it means that the purpose of such section is to satisfy the transparency requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”), and therefore it applies only to personal data (as defined by the GDPR) associated with devices who we deem to be located in the European Economic Area, United Kingdom, or Switzerland. If you are a resident of California, please see “The CCPA Angle” for information related to the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”).  “The CCPA Angle” sections apply only to “personal information” that is subject to the CCPA. For purposes of the CCPA, this Privacy Policy serves as both the Privacy Policy and Notice at Collection of Personal Information.
