When you download the app, you use an app store such as the Apple App Store or Android Play Store and will be required to use your customer ID for your purchase. We do not have access to any of the personal information users share with these app stores.
We may occasionally send you push-notifications through our mobile applications to send you game updates, high scores and other service-related notifications that may be of importance to you.

Users are able to share their photos directly with their own Social Networks and through the Safari Central Facebook feed of user photos from across the world, to promote use of the app and to benefit conservation efforts.
Selected photos will be used by IoE and our conservation partners to document the use of our Service and promote it for the benefit of conservation efforts.
