What data is collected?

Everything what you do ingame is tracked and counted. Like a cam next to you, so try smile when you play 😀

Beginning with account data for several platforms or ingame chopped wood, picked up carrots, harvested grass and so on. Which menu you are actually, timestamps, name, items. Well, everything whatever you can interact and use.

How is data collected

Addresses are split into different tasks and something is mixed. Telemetry as example is running on an own domain, but you'll find telemetry in your login area. Already mentioned services constantly exchange data. Telemetry also includes regular callbacks.
