Privacy policy

Introduction – we don’t want your data!

At DigitialCrosswords.com (please read more in the About us page) we strive to protect your privacy the best way possible. The best way we can do this is to collect as little personal data as possible. The use of our apps or websites will only require very little of your personal data. The data that we do collect solely refer to the fact that we do need to make a living and thus expose the users and visitors to ads which often requires some data about the user since the ads by such operators as Google and Apple are customized to give you the best ad experience (and yes, to allow these companies – and therefore also us – to optimize the chances of making money out of your stay at our website + apps). If you want to learn how to opt out of personalized ads from Google, that is actually possible – read more here. You will however still be exposed to ads.

We do Google Analytics to improve our product – this means that we keep track of the movements (time spent, number of pages accessed, etc.) of the users on our website + apps. This tracking is 100% anonymous seen from the end users perspective. We only need to know when and how the visitors find us. And how long they stay, and perhaps why they leave again.
