CosmoKnots Software Privacy Policy

Informally Speaking...

Thanks for playing / being interested in CosmoKnots! We'd like you to know that CosmoKnots sends scores and statistics about how you play the game to our servers so we can use them to display leaderboards, replay replays, and give you a shared account between any devices you play on, and also so we can have that automated feedback, which we use to improve the game without you having to ask. We don't collect any personally identifying information, we're not reading your emails or collecting mysterious metadata on your phone calls, and we don't and won't give anybody else any information about you (which, again, we don't collect in the first place!). Any information we collect is entirely for the benefit of the players and the ongiong development of the game.
That all said, read on for the more intimidating legalese lawyer-required stuff:
