Nickelodeon Privacy Policy for Apple Arcade


Effective: January 1, 2020.


Welcome! This Privacy Policy describes the privacy practices of the Nickelodeon family of brands, which is a programming service under Viacom International Inc., for the Nickelodeon-branded games included in the Apple Arcade.  We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we make changes, we will revise the date at the top of the policy.


In the Nickelodeon-branded games included in the Apple Arcade, we may use four Apple services or plug-ins in support of the internal operations of the games and these plug-ins collect information regarding your use of our games:  Apple CloudKit (iCloud), Apple GameKit (Game Center), Apple App Analytics and Apple Crash Logging Tool.


·         Apple CloudKit/iCloud:  When you play our game, game play data is collected within the game and transmitted and stored in your iCloud account storage to sync your game progress across devices.  The following game play data is stored in iCloud: (a) system settings (type of device used to play, language settings, BGM/SE volume settings, etc.); and (b) status of game progress (information on what stages have been cleared, what items are unlocked, etc.).  We do not receive or store this data on our servers.  You may decline to store data in iCloud at any time.  To turn off iCloud data storage, you must turn off iCloud in Apple Settings for our game.  As a result, you will only be able to play in single player offline mode.  Your use of iCloud is subject to Apple’s applicable Privacy Policy.

·         Apple Game CenterIf you are signed in to Game Center on your Apple device, Apple will receive your gameplay activity, including scores, achievements and status of unlocked achievements.   We do not receive or store this data on our servers.  You may decline to send data to Game Center at any time.  To stop sending data to Game Center, you must sign out of Game Center in Apple Settings.  As a result, you will not appear on leaderboards or be able to use other Game Center features.    Your use of Apple Game Center is subject to Apple’s applicable Privacy Policy.

·         Apple App Analytics:  When you install and play our games, Apple will collect certain anonymous analytical metrics on an opt-in basis to measure: (a) user engagement metrics, including number of sessions, active devices, and retention for your apps on iOS and tvOS; (b) app deletions; (c) App Store impressions (d) crashes, (e) download dates and (f) App Store sources.  Apple shares this information with us in an  aggregated form.   Apple App Analytics is utilized pursuant to Apple’s Privacy Policy.

·         Apple Crash Logging Tool:  If the game crashes, certain anonymous information necessary to analyze the crash is collected within the game and transmitted to Apple including a unique identifier for the report, an anonymized per-device identifier, a unique identifier for the combination of the device and vendor of the crashed application, the version and the executable name for the process that crashed, and the OS version, including the build number, on which the crash occurred.  Apple shares this anonymous data with us in order that we may trace and correct bugs within the game.  Apple Crash Logging Tool is utilized pursuant to Apple’s Privacy Policy.

Any information we may have access to through the above Apple services or plug-ins may be used for the following purposes:


·         Provide, maintain, and improve the games, as well as to develop new content and features.  We may share non-personal information with unaffiliated companies or individuals we hire or work with that perform services on our behalf in developing and maintaining the games and who perform customer service.

·         Perform our contractual obligations.

·         Debug the games to identify and repair errors.

·         Protect the rights and property of Nickelodeon and others and comply with our legal obligations, including to detect, investigate, and prevent fraud and other illegal activities and to enforce our agreements.
