Non-personal data

We are keeping track of which puzzles you have already solved to ensure you don't see the same puzzle more than once.
This includes the ID of the puzzle, date and time of the solving, and if you selected the puzzle as a favorite.
Registered users can see a list of the last solved puzzles and their favorites.
We are also calculating a rating for you, to ensure that you get puzzles with a difficulty corresponding to your puzzle solving level.
