Privacy Policy

ApeChase! Privacy Policy


Last modified: December 10, 2019


This privacy policy governs your use of a software application (“Application”) on a mobile device that was created by Blobbyfish LLC (“Company”, “We”, or “Us”). The Application is an “endless jumper” game that allows the user to traverse the skyline of a city. The user can collect bonus coins and funnel cakes through use of the Application. These coins and cakes can be used to collect new heroes and accessories through the in-game shop. The Application also includes a link to FGTeeV’s YouTube channel to watch videos from the inspiration of the Application. 


While this policy discusses data that We share with our third-party advertising partners, this policy does not govern the data that is collected by those third parties. Those third parties have their own privacy policies that govern the data that they collect, and We encourage the user to review those policies before using the Application.


Additionally, as mentioned above, the user may access websites through this Application. This policy does not govern the information collected through any websites that the user can access through the Application.

Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how We will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, do not download, register with, or use the Application. By downloading, registering with, or using the Application, you agree to this privacy policy. This policy may change from time to time (see Changes to this Privacy Policy). Your continued use of this App after We revise this policy means you accept those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.


User Provided Information

The Application obtains the information you provide when you download and register the Application. No additional user-provided information is required unless the user requests an in-game purchase. Purchasing items in game requires the user to provide credit card information and billing details to the relevant application store. We record the fact that the user has made a purchase, including which purchase was made, to ensure that the purchase is properly applied to the user’s account. Finally, We will keep records and copies of your correspondence, including email addresses and phone numbers, if you decide to contact Us. The basis for processing the information described in this Section is to perform the contract with you related to these activities and services, or because you have asked us to take specific steps before entering into a contract in respect to these activities and services.


Automatically Collected Information

The Application may collect certain information automatically, such as the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device’s unique device ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browsers you use, and information about the way you use the Application. When you access and use the App, We may automatically collect certain details of your access to and use of the App, including traffic data, logs, and other communication data, and the resources that you access and use on or through the App. 


This Application collects information about the location of your device. To serve you with relevant advertisements, the Application uses data from your GPS and WiFi to determine your location, which is shared with our third-party advertising partners to serve you with advertisements that are directly relevant to you. See the sections titled “Automatic Data Collection and Advertising” and “What third-parties collect my information” for examples of what We collect and how We protect this data.


We may use the information We collect to display advertisements to our advertisers' target audiences. Even though We do not disclose your personal information for these purposes without your consent, if you click on or otherwise interact with an advertisement, the advertiser may assume that you meet its target criteria. We have a legitimate interest in processing the information described in this Section for the administration of our business and the provision of our services.
