How we collect and use information from the End Users

We obtain information about End Users to provide App Providers with behavioural and analytics data related to how End Users interact with their products and services (the “Applications”). We do not collect any personal information from End Users; we collect information using tracking code technology that App Providers install in their Applications and share with us pursuant to their information collection practices, which are typically outlined in a privacy policy like this one and made available on the App Provider’s website. We encourage all End Users to read the privacy policies of the Applications they access or use. The App Providers provide us with the following types of information about End Users:

When an App Provider embeds our tracking code into its Applications, we access or obtain pseudonymous advertising IDs (“Ad ID”) such as Google Ad ID depending on the selections the applicable App Provider makes via the Jiny Software Development Kits (the “SDKs”). We also access or obtain additional information about End Users’ use of App Providers’ Applications and End Users’ devices, such as the actions taken, content viewed, applications opened, applications sent to the background, transactions in which an End User engaged, application name, application version, application bundle identifier, operating system name, operating system version, unique device identifiers, IP addresses, and access date, time, and location information.
