Cookies – Not just for breakfast anymore – What Are They and How Do We Use Them?
We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our sites and our Games. A session cookie expires when you close your browser or an game on your device. A persistent cookie remains on your device for an extended period of time, and can be used when you return to our site to help identify you or allow you to log in, or on other third-party sites to communicate to you via online-marketing channels. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site and our games, but your ability to use some areas of the site will be limited and you may need to re-enter your personal data when you register.
You do not have to accept all of the cookies used by our website or games. If you reject certain cookies, however, you may not be able to use some of the features of our websites. Your browser or device may be configured to allow you to refuse or delete cookies or to be notified when a cookie is stored on your device. To change your web browser or device settings for cookies, you can follow the instructions in the help section of your web browser or visit allaboutcookies.org
Please note that by deleting or blocking cookies that are strictly necessary for the performance of our website or games, they may not function correctly and you may not be able to access certain areas of the website or the games.
What Do We Collect?
We use the following types of cookies on our website and in our games:
- Strictly Necessary Cookies:
These cookies are necessary for the website and our games to function and cannot be switched off without impairing the functionality of our website. They are set to respond to actions taken by you to make a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser or device settings to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. We do not collect strictly necessary cookies on our websites.
- Performance Cookies:
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our website and our App. [All information these cookies collect is aggregated by third-party providers or immediately by us.] If you block these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our website, or will not be able to remember your preferences you chose for our App. Of course, that makes us sad, but it also makes it difficult for us to tell our investors and partners how many amazing people are playing our games, which then makes it harder for us to offer those great games to users like you.
- Functional Cookies:
These cookies enable the website and our games to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages and our games. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
- Targeting Cookies:
These cookies may be set through our website or games by partners. They may be used to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites or in our games. They do not directly store your personal details but do uniquely identify your browser or your device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less personalised content. We do not collect targeting cookies except for the cookies mentioned under Performance Cookies.
- Chocolate Chip Cookies:
These cookies are usually kept in our gaming development studio, and help to motivate our game developers to work faster / later / smarter. Users of the USIKU website and games will rarely directly benefit from such cookies, however all of our registered users are most welcome to stop by to say hi to the team, and we’ll even share some of these cookies with you then.
Links to Other Sites
The USIKU website and our games may contain links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by USIKU. Please be aware that USIKU is not responsible for the privacy or security practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information, as much fun as we know that can be.
