Cookies, anonymous identifiers and SDKs

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server and is stored by your browser. Cookies may not contain any information that personally identify you, but they can inform us about your certain preferences (for example the Tarot deck you used last time or the language you have selected). If you block cookies in the website version of the Services you will not be able to use all the features of the Services.

We use cookies on our website for the following purposes:

  • Authentication and status. We identify you and know if you are signed in or not.
  • Personalization. We store information about your certain preferences.
  • Analysis. We try to analyse the use and performance of the Services.
  • Cookie consent. We may store your preferences in relation to the use of cookies more generally.

In compliance with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), users in the EEA (European Economic Area) will see a message asking for their cookie consent.

As formerly stated, the free version of our app (not the website) features personalized advertising that is implemented through the use of anonymous identifiers or Mobile Ads SDK from Google and the Services are absolutely not intended for children under the age of 17. In compliance with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and other international laws (e.g. Privacy Act of 1988 in Australia, Data Protection Act in the UK, PIPEDA in Canada, PDPA in Singapore and Malaysia), users in the EEA (European Economic Area) and other areas will see a message asking for their personalised advertising consent. In compliance with the CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act), we disable data collection for users in California USA who will only see generic ads.

The free version of our app (not the website) also features non-personalized advertising (NPA). Although non-personalized ads don’t use mobile ad identifiers for ad targeting, they do still use mobile ad identifiers for frequency capping, aggregated ad reporting, and to combat fraud and abuse. Therefore, in compliance with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and other international laws, users will see a message asking for their non-personalised advertising consent.

The paid version of the app and the website version do not feature any advertising at all.

We use Google Analytics. Google Analytics gathers information about the users of the Services and stores some information on your device using cookies or SDKs (Software Development Kits). We collect the information to generate reports on the use of the Services.
