Stay Inside Games is Nick Podsiadlik and Amy Manning. We are hobbyists who do not make a living with games or the internet, and we have no personal interest in you. Sorry. We really do not want your information. To that end, our game, Bounty Hunter Space Lizard (“BHSL”), collects minimal information.
What information do we collect and why?
Personally identifying information:
Your app store account information: You got BHSL from an app store. To do that, you had to give the app store certain account information. We do not attempt to collect this information, but we do use the different app stores’ functions to make sure that you got BHSL from that store rather than pirating it. Thus, we implicitly send your account identifier to the app store to verify that you obtained the app from the store.
If you have bought the Amazon version or paid to remove ads, then we do not otherwise collect or use any identifying information.
If, however, you are using the free version of BHSL and have not paid to remove ads, then we will show you ads via Google Ads, which is named, rather menacingly, AdMob. AdMob uses your Google identifier to serve “personalized” ads. Although we do not ourselves collect or use your Google identifier or any other information, AdMob does.

The app stores collect and give us anonymized information to tell us when the game crashed and what device it was running on. This helps us make the game better, i.e., less crashy. In addition, we anticipate gathering anonymized analytics data once the game is out of beta. What this means is that we will use a service such as Google Analytics to tell us generally how many users are reaching a certain level, or getting killed by Secbot, etc. This data will not personally identify you. We will use this data to make the game more fun.
We do not intentionally store your data at all. To the extent that your data is kept by Google, Apple, or Amazon in their respective app store, we will not copy, store, extend the storage life, or otherwise encourage the storage of your data with the exceptions described above of verifying that you got BHSL from the appropriate app store, collecting anonymized analytics, and, if you are using the free version, showing you ads.
How do I ask you to delete my information?
We do not, to our knowledge, actually have your information to delete. If you’re feeling paranoid (and we often feel paranoid too!) and want us to dig around and verify that we really cannot get any of your information, please email [email protected] for soothing reassurance.
If you want Apple, Google, or Amazon to delete any information they may have about you, then please refer to their privacy policies:
What if I have more questions?
