Privacy policy

We respect the privacy of all Internet users.

Information collected:
When you visit Shtoss.com we collect some information from you. We collect no personally identifiable information such as your name, address, phone number, or e-mail address unless you willingly submit it to us via registration or contact. Some types of non-personally identifiable information such as the Internet Service Provider you use to connect to the Internet, your browser type, or the type of computer operating system you use is collected upon your visit to our site in order to provide our advertisers with targeting information.

Cookies and data collected:
Shtoss.com collects information about the way visitors and players are using our website through the use of Google Analytics and its related cookie(s). The goal of collecting this data is to make better informed decisions about what games our users are more likely to enjoy and to help improve the experience on Shtoss.com. The type of information that Google Analytics collects includes browser and operating system type, country, pages visited, time spent on site, date/time stamp and broad demographic information. Google Analytics does not collect any personally identifiable information about you on Shtoss.com.

Certain games on Shtoss.com will create "Local shared objects" which allow the game to save game progress so that when you return you can pick up from where you left off. Any game save data is stored only on your computer and not transferred to Shtoss.com or any other third party. Some games from third-party publishers that are included on Shtoss.com may offer the ability to save game-progress in the cloud via third-party servers, in which the storage and retrieval of such data is dictated by the privacy policy of such game publisher offering the service.

External Links:
Shtoss.com may link to other web sites and is not responsible for the content or privacy policies of these external sites. Some games on Shtoss.com also contain links to external sites or may contain requests for personal information for gameplay purposes (e.g. account registration or chatroom features) which are governed by their own individual privacy policies. All users should therefore also be aware of the individual privacy policies within any game that requests personal information such as name or email address.

Advertising: Shtoss.com is a free to use website and generates revenue through third-party advertising on the website. Without the support of this advertising SHtoss.com would not be able to provide new games. These third-party advertising companies may collect and use information about your visits to this and other websites to help determine which advertisements are most suited to your interests and measure performance of any advertising campaigns. In order to collect this information, the third-party may use a cookie or other such as javascript codes. Shtoss.com has no influence over the policies of third-party advertising networks (except our ability to discontinue using their services).
If you would like more information about advertising practices and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, you can visit Google's Advertising and Privacy page.

Children under 13:
We are committed to complying with the children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Shtoss.com has no user forums, registration systems, chat or instant message capabilities, and thus no private information pertaining to children can be shared on Shtoss.com. However certain games hosted on Shtoss.com may have such features as described in the External Links section, and are governed by their own individual privacy policy. If you have any concern that information related to the privacy of children has been submitted to Shtoss.com, please contact us

Updates to this Privacy Policy:
This Privacy Policy may be changed or modified from time to time. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to this page to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back to our Privacy Policy periodically.
