Connecting to iCloud and Game Center and the collection of your teamplayerid and Game Center alias are not strictly necessary to the functionality of the game but may improve your experience. We will process this personal information (this includes personal information of children) on the legal basis of our legitimate interests and/or to support internal operations of the game.
