Twitter updated its privacy policy, completely rewriting it with “clear language” free of “legal jargon.”

“We’ve rewritten it to be as simple [and] useful as possible to help you understand the information we collect, how it’s used, and the control you have,” the platform tweeted.

The new policy statement explains that the data the company collects come from information that users provide when they join the platform and as they use the platform, as well as from third parties such as advertisers, developers, and publishers. It further details a way for users to update their settings to better control how their own personal data are used.

Simultaneously, Twitter launched a game, similar to the original Mario video game, to further explain its privacy policy. Gamers can play under a variety of avatars on the online game Twitter Data Dash.
