Is Unity Collecting Information On Players Of My Game?
If you are a developer or publisher that uses Unity Ads, Unity Analytics or any other personalization service (e.g., GameTune), then yes, Unity might be collecting personal information on the player of your game. In the case of Unity Ads, the player will have the option to opt out of personal information collection and request a report on the personal information collected. For other personalization services, it is up to you, the developer, to implement the proper configurations that abide by applicable Privacy laws and regulations.
I want to build a game using Unity software, but without any other additional services, what should I know?
Building an application using a recent version of our Editor software will not result in the collection of information about your app users. However, if using a legacy version of the Editor, we advise you to check that analytics are switched off, which can be done using the below steps. Please note, these images are reflecting the legacy interface which had legacy elections. Please also refrain from turning on other services such as Unity Gaming Services (Foundation, Engagement, and Grow Services) as they may involve the collection of app-user personal data.
