The Information We Collect
We collect a variety of information from you and other sources when you use the Modulo Service, including technical information as well as information that can be used to identify you individually, sometimes referred to as “personally identifiable information.
When you register with Yiip, you provide us with certain personal information such as your name, username, phone number, email address and any other personal or preference information that you provide to us. When you send a text message to the Modulo Service, we may have access to your phone number. If you sign up for any paid service, we collect your credit card or other payment instrument information.
When you launch the Modulo Service or use Yiip Platforms, we automatically collect a variety of information about your device and your use of the Modulo Service in log files, such as your IP address, device ID, operating system, and browser type, as well as information regarding items on the Modulo Service that you view or access and transactions you engage in using the Modulo Service. This information is gathered for all users. We may also use "cookies," or small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive so that the Modulo Service may access that information on return visits. We generally do not store or retrieve any personally identifiable information in cookies. If you have set your browser to reject cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all the features of the Modulo Service.
If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about the Modulo Service, we may ask you for information needed to send the invitation, such as your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email or instant message inviting him or her to visit the site. Yiip stores this information to send this one-time invitation, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we remove this information from our database.
By using Yiip, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.

Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
Yiip is not in the business of selling your information, and we take your privacy very seriously. In the course of providing the Modulo Service to you and other users, we make limited disclosures of your information to others for a variety of purposes.
The Modulo Service may currently or in the future enable users to publish information and communicate in a variety of ways. Any personally identifiable information that you voluntarily choose to make available to others through use of the Modulo Service, such as on a public profile page or in a comment, posting, or in other User Content, will be available for use without restriction to the recipients. Once you make your personal information available to others in this manner, Yiip cannot control how it is collected, used, and disclosed by the recipients. If you choose to use features on the Modulo Service that allow you to publish or syndicate information to third party services such as Facebook, use and disclosure of any information you choose to disclose in this manner will be subject to such third party’s privacy policies.
Although we may allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your User Content, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that User Content you post on the Modulo Service will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained in the Modulo Service.
Yiip may also share automatically collected and other non-personally identifiable information in an aggregate form (such as user trends, Application downloads, and demographic information) with a variety of third parties, including our affiliates, advertisers, publishers, and other current and prospective investors or business partners. This information may be used to assist such parties in understanding the usage, viewing, and demographic patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Modulo Service.
In the event that the Modulo Service links to certain Third Party Content which requires access credentials (such as a name, user ID, or password) for access, we may provide the access credentials that you give to us to the operator or website owner of the Third Party Content in order to facilitate and enable your access to that Third Party Content.
We share your information with third parties where we believe such sharing is 1) incident to our ordinary business operations (e.g., emailing you through a third party server such as Gmail), 2) legally required or when we choose to collaborate with a law enforcement agency in the investigation or other law enforcement activity, 3) useful to protect and defend our rights and property, 4) useful to protect the personal safety or property of our customers or the public, or 5) authorized by you.
Third Party Advertising
Yiip does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Yiip to show an advertisement to a certain audience or audience segment and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they were trying to reach.
Changing or Removing Information
Yiip users may modify or delete certain profile information at any time by logging into their account on either a computer or mobile device. Information will be updated promptly in active user databases. Individuals who wish to deactivate their Yiip account may do so by emailing us at email@example.com. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be generally available to other Users. Further, even after removal, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived form or if other Users have copied or stored your User Content.
Where you make use of the communication features of the Modulo Service to share information with other individuals on Yiip or make information publically available, however, (e.g., sending a favorites list to another user or posting a comment or review) you generally cannot remove such communications.
Yiip takes certain precautions to protect our users’ information and to limit the risk that it will be accessed without authorization, including use of certain industry standard technologies and practices. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Yiip, and you do so at your own risk. If Yiip learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Yiip may post a notice through the Modulo Service if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach, or if you have any questions about the security of Yiip Applications, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
