Last Updated: 27/01/2023

Privacy Policy

Mussila provides educational mobile apps for mobile devices. This Privacy Policy will help you understand how we collect and use your information and what choices you have when you play our apps, use our Apps, use our Site, or otherwise provide information to Mussila via our Services. 

  1. Personal Information We Collect

This Privacy Policy covers our use of “personal information.” When we say “personal information,” we mean information that relates to you and can – either on its own or in combination with other information – identify you as an individual. Personal information does not include data that has been de-identified or aggregated such that you can no longer be identified. Mussila does not own the personal information of its users. As a precaution with younger users, we always advise teachers against writing their students full names.

When you use our Services, we may collect the following kinds of information:

  • Account Information. When you sign up for an account with our services, you may provide us with personal information. This may include your name, username, or email.
  • Apple ID, and Google Sign In. Mussila may allow you to register for an account with third-party services such as Apple ID, Facebook, or Google. If you use our Services with an SNS Account, we will receive basic information tied to those accounts, such as your email address or name. Students can not use SNS accounts to authenticate in our applications. Only teachers or Family accounts have the option to use this authentication method.
  • Information from your use of the services. We may collect certain information automatically when you use the services. This information may include your progress and other details about your gameplay, Internet protocol (IP) address, cookie identifiers, mobile carrier, details about your browser or device, region or country for the users device, pages or areas that you visit before and after using the services, and other information about how you use the services. All information is only readable by the user, owner of said data, and the team at Mussila. All data is encrypted in transit and at rest,  and non-readable by service providers.
    Only gameplay and progress data applies to Orðalykill.
  • Communications with Mussila. When you directly communicate with us, we may collect personal information and other information contained in your message.
  • Transactional Information. Our service providers and we may process your Payment Information to facilitate a transaction you request.

    Orðalykill does not require payment.
  1. Cookies, pixel tags, and analytics information (This section does not apply to Orðalykill)

We, as well as third parties that provide content, interest-based advertising, or other functionality or Services, may use cookies, pixel tags, local storage, and other technologies (“Technologies”) to automatically collect information through the Services.

  • Cookies. Cookies are small text files placed in visitors’ computer browsers to store their preferences. Most browsers allow you to block and delete cookies. 
  • Pixel Tags. A pixel tag is a piece of code embedded in the services that collect information about users’ engagement. The use of a pixel allows us to record, for example, that a user has visited a particular web page or clicked on a particular advertisement. We may also include pixel tags in e-mails to understand whether messages have been opened, acted on, or forwarded.
  • Analytics. We may also use Google Analytics and other service providers to collect information regarding user behavior and user demographics on some of our services and to develop website content. For more information about Google Analytics, please visit www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. You can opt out of Google’s processing of data generated by your use of the Services by visiting http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

‍ Our uses of these technologies fall into the following general categories:  

  • Operationally necessary.  This includes Technologies that allow you access to our services, applications, and tools that are required to identify irregular site behavior, prevent fraudulent activity and improve security or that allow you to make use of our functionality.
  • Performance related.  We may use technologies to assess the performance of our services, including as part of our analytic practices to help us understand how our visitors use the services.
    Functionality related.  We may use Technologies that allow us to offer you enhanced functionality when accessing or using our Services.  This may include identifying you when you sign in to our services or keeping track the progress in the game.
  • Advertising or targeting related.  We may use first-party or third-party technologies to deliver content, including ads relevant to your interests, on our services or on third-party sites.
  1. Third-Party Websites and Software Development Kits

In using our Services, you may access links to websites and services that are owned or operated by third parties (each, a “third-party service“). Any information that you provide on or to a third-party service or that is collected by a third-party service is provided directly to the owner or operator of the third-party service and is subject to the owner’s or operator’s privacy policy. We’re not responsible for the content, privacy, or security practices and policies of any third-party service. To protect your information, we recommend that you carefully review the privacy policies of all third-party services that you access.

We use third-party software development kits (“SDKs”), such as Google Firebase, Firebase Analytics, Facebook Business Manager, Facebook Ads, Branch, Amplitude and Convertful as part of the functionality of our services. Third-party SDKs may allow third parties including advertisers to collect information about you to provide content that is more relevant to you.
