How does Kash Karnival protect my privacy?
How can I remove information about myself from Kash Karnival products and services?
You can uninstall the app from Facebook and/or your mobile or tablet, however doing so will not fully deactivate the account but only remove the app itself it from that platform.
To remove from Facebook, go to your Facebook Settings and click the Apps tab on the left, and click the “x” next to Kash Karnival to remove the app.
To remove from your mobile or tablet, follow the common procedure for uninstalling apps for your particular device.
When the app is removed you will no longer be an active user and thus will not receive notifications or information from Kash Karnival, but your information will still exist within the database should you decide to return.
If you no longer want Kash Karnival to make active use of your information, you may send an e-mail to email@example.com. Place “Delete My Account” in the subject line and include your first name, last name, e-mail address and Kash Karnival username that you used to sign up for the service, in the body of the e-mail. Note that this will delete all information and records of your account with the exception of any financial transactions which need to be kept for legal and business financial records.
What types of cookies are used by Kash Karnival and why?
I’ve received a suspicious message and don’t know if it’s from Kash Karnival?
Unfortunately, some people attempt to gain information about users by sending malicious emails and SNS messages impersonating Kash Karnival. This is known as phishing and is an attempt to trick users into giving their account login information to an unauthorised third party.
Be wary of any messages received alerting you that you have won prizes or need to verify your account. Always make sure to check the sender, Kash Karnival will only send email from accounts with “@kashkarnival.com.au” as their domain. Also, ensure you are on a Kash Karnival website when entering any personal information. One way to ensure that you are on the right website is to type it in to your browser’s insertion point rather than following links.
Does Kash Karnival engage in online behavioural advertising and how does it work?
Kash Karnival works with web publishers, affiliates and advertising networks (“Advertising Partners”) to deliver interest-based ads to users that have visited Kash Karnival, played Kash Karnival games or accessed Kash Karnival’s content including videos and social media content (“Kash Karnival Users”).
This practice is also referred to as online behavioural advertising. Our Advertising Partners use software that recognises cookies that are placed on the browsers of Kash Karnival Users. When the ad software recognizes these cookies or pixels they deliver ads for Kash Karnival’s products and services when Kash Karnival Users are on third party websites. Many of these ads for Kash Karnival’s products will include an icon that an ad recipient can click to learn more about the ad, why he/she received it and how to exercise choice. The icon displayed may range from the ad choices icon to a question mark (“?”) in the corner of the ad unit. To learn more about how interest based advertising works go here. If you’d like to know more about online behavioural advertising in general and your choices you may visit the DAA and the NAI.
In Kash Karnival’s continuing commitment to protecting your privacy we have worked with many organisations and government entities that look out for your privacy. We have worked to keep our users informed of our practices around privacy and your choices in controlling your privacy.
Below you may find links to various organisations that specialise in privacy and technology in order to help you be informed as privacy evolves in the digital age.

Some of these technologies are used to identify users when they are on Kash Karnival games and others may be used to track unique web users. This page was developed to describe the technologies we use, including how they work, our purposes for using them and your choices about their use.
Technology Kash Karnival Uses
Local Shared Objects (LSOs), which are also known as “flash cookies”, are used to:
- Identify devices so we can prevent and respond to fraud.
- Store game preferences so we can present the game experience you want. These preferences let us know things like whether you want certain features within the Kash Karnival world.

Html eTags is a technology that allows a web service to validate the temporary storage (cache) of web documents like html pages and images. They are used by Kash Karnival or service providers working on Kash Karnival’s behalf to optimise web caching for each user.
You may be able to remove eTags from your browser by following your browser instructions for clearing cache.
Beacons, pixel tags, clear gifs are all terms for similar technology that often works in the same way – small strings of (software) code that track events such as when a web user visits a page or opens an email.

Identifiers Kash Karnival Uses
IP Addresses are numbers assigned to the device you use to access the internet. Kash Karnival, like many other web services, automatically collects IP Addresses from visitors to its games and sites. Kash Karnival puts this information to several uses including providing security features and identifying general user locations, which may be used to target advertising.
Mobile Identifiers are numbers that identify devices or access points for devices that access Kash Karnival’s mobile offerings. When you play our mobile or tablet games we may use one or more of several different identifiers for your device, including UDID and Mac Address, to identify you and your game account and to recognise players from one Kash Karnival app to another. If you elect to participate in an SMS program we will use and may store your mobile phone number.
Facebook and Other Social Networks
In many instances users must be logged in to Facebook or other social networks to access our games. We typically collect and store the social network user ID and use it for several things including identifying specific players and accounts.
Kash Karnival IDs
When you create an account with Kash Karnival or establish a profile on www.kashkarnival.com.au, we will generate and assign a Kash Karnival ID to your account.
NOTE: The social networks that offer Kash Karnival games may use tracking technology of their own to recognize users and provide certain products and features. To learn more about Facebook’s practices visit Facebook.
