    We are making some changes to our Raw Data Export (RDE) process to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) going into effect this month.

    We will be removing Personally Identifiable Information (PII) from Raw Data Export. This will affect both the export process from the Analytics dashboard and requests made through the RDE API. (We will get the Manual updated as soon as possible.)

    PII Removed

    The following fields will be removed. If you have any processes that rely on these fields, they will need to be updated to accommodate the new schema.

    The IP address that the session was played from
    Dataset: All

    Advertising Id. On iOS, collected when Unity Ads is enabled. On Android, all the time
    Dataset: DeviceInfo

    A unique device identifier. (This varies by platform and Unity version.)
    Dataset: All Datasets, DeviceInfo


    These changes are planned to be released on June 4, 2018.

    Custom Events

    We have always discouraged sending PII in Custom Events. This policy has not changed. We cannot offer any legal advice as to what would qualify as PII for your application. We can provide some examples of data that is clearly PII and should not be sent to our Analytics system:
    • Email Addresses
    • Phone Numbers
    • Social Security Numbers
    This is not an exhaustive list. We recommend reaching out to your legal counsel with any questions about your application’s data collection.

    If you believe you have sent any PII in a Custom Event, please reach out to us and we will discuss how to handle this situation:
