Simon Schuster built the Hoshi app as a Freemium app. This SERVICE is provided by Simon Schuster at no cost and is intended for use as is.
This page is used to inform visitors regarding my policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information if anyone decided to use my Service.
Information Collection and Use
For a better experience, while using our Service, I may require you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information. The information that I request will be retained on your device and is not collected by me in any way.
The app does use third-party services that may collect information used to identify you.
Your rights and options
You have the rights to correct your data, have your data deleted, object and/or restrict how we use or share your data. You also have the right to withdraw consent where you have previously given your consent to the processing of your personal information, for example by turning off camera access in your mobile device settings. This will not affect any data processed before such withdrawal. You have the rights to opt-out of targeted advertising. To provide you with better tailored ads in apps/games, we use third-party advertising networks and their partners, including those listed in APPENDIX A. To do so they use personal and non-personal information such as advertising identifiers, such as the Android advertising ID and/or Apple's ID for advertising (IDFA), and/or other tracking technologies to enable and optimize this advertising procedure. You can opt-out from personalized advertisement experience, through the following ways.
For iOS Devices:
- Open Settings
- Select Privacy
- Select Advertising and enable "Limit Ad Tracking" (iOS 13 and older versions); Or select Tracking and turn off "Allow Apps to Request to Track" (iOS 14)
For Android Devices:
- Open Settings
- Select Google
- Select Ads and enable "Opt out of Ads Personalization"
After opting out, advertising networks will consider this choice as a withdrawal of consent to personalized advertisement experience and they will show contextual advertisements and not personalized advertisements based on your interests. Note: Regardless of your choice and/or your device settings, you will continue to see non-customized advertising and you may continue to receive personalized ads from our third-party ad networks that obtain your consent on other apps and/or websites. For more information, please go to ‘APPENDIX A - Advertising networks and their partners’ below. Any requests to exercise your rights should be made through e-mail at [email protected]. These requests can be exercised free of charge and will be addressed by us as early as possible. You may also contact your local data protection authority within the European Economic Area for unresolved complaints.
I want to inform you that whenever you use my Service, in a case of an error in the app I collect data and information (through third-party products) on your phone called Log Data. This Log Data may include information such as your device Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, device name, operating system version, the configuration of the app when utilizing my Service, the time and date of your use of the Service, and other statistics.
Cookies are files with a small amount of data that are commonly used as anonymous unique identifiers. These are sent to your browser from the websites that you visit and are stored on your device's internal memory.
This Service does not use these “cookies” explicitly. However, the app may use third-party code and libraries that use “cookies” to collect information and improve their services. You have the option to either accept or refuse these cookies and know when a cookie is being sent to your device. If you choose to refuse our cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of this Service.
I may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons:
- To facilitate our Service;
- To provide the Service on our behalf;
- To perform Service-related services; or
- To assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.
I want to inform users of this Service that these third parties have access to their Personal Information. The reason is to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf. However, they are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose.
I value your trust in providing us your Personal Information, thus we are striving to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and I cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Links to Other Sites
These Services do not address anyone under the age of 13. I do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age. In the case I discover that a child under 13 has provided me with personal information, I immediately delete this from our servers. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact me so that I will be able to do the necessary actions.
This policy is effective as of 2023-03-30
