What we collect

The Application obtains the information you provide when you download and register the Application. Registration with us is optional. We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so–for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better.

Information You Provide to Us:

To make it easier for you to use the Services, we will give you the option of allowing Ylee access to certain information on your mobile device, such as your camera roll, photo library, microphone, and sound files. We’ll collect this information only for the purposes of providing the Services to you. If you create an Account, we’ll collect certain information that can be used to identify you, such as your name and email address (“PII”).

Cookies information:

Additionally, information about how you use our Services is collected automatically using “cookies”. Cookies are text files placed on your device to collect standard internet log information and behaviour information. This information is used to track visitor use of the Services and to compile statistical reports on activity. We may use both session Cookies and persistent Cookies to identify that you’ve logged in to the Services and to tell us how and when you interact with our Services. Unlike persistent Cookies, session Cookies are deleted when you log off from the Services and close your browser. Although most browsers automatically accept Cookies, you can change your browser options to stop automatically accepting Cookies or to prompt you before accepting Cookies. If you don’t accept Cookies, you may not be able to access all portions or features of the Services. Some third-party service providers that we engage (including third-party advertisers) may also place their own Cookies on your device. This Privacy Policy covers only our use of Cookies and does not include use of Cookies by third parties.

Information Related to Use of the Services:

Our servers automatically record certain information about how a person uses our Services (we refer to this information as “Log Data”). Log Data may include information such as your internet protocol (IP) address, browser type, operating system, the web page that you were visiting before accessing our Services, the pages or features of our Services to which you browsed and the time spent on those pages or features, search terms, the links on our Services that you clicked on, and other data. We use Log Data to administer the Services and we analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) Log Data to improve, customize, and enhance our Services by expanding their features and functionality and tailoring them to your needs and preferences. We may use your IP address to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how our Services are used.

We may use third-party Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Service.We may use third party data collection tools such as Amplitude, Testfairy and Mixpanel to provide us with analytics data about your interactions with our Services.

  • for Testfairy, please visit https://www.testfairy.com/tester-tos-privacy.html

You may opt-out of Mixpanel’s automatic retention of data collected while using the Services by visiting https://mixplanel.com/optout/. To track opt-outs, Mixpanel uses a persistent opt-out cookie placed on your device. If you get a new computer, install a new browser, erase or otherwise alter the browser’s cookie file (including upgrading certain browsers), you may clear the Mixpanel opt-out cookie.

Information Sent by Your Mobile Device:

We collect certain information that your mobile device sends when you use our Services, like a device identifier, user settings, and the operating system of your device, as well as information about your use of our Services.

Location Information:

When you use our App, we may collect and store information about your location by converting your IP address into a rough geo-location or by accessing your mobile device’s GPS coordinates or coarse location if you enable location services on your device. We may use location information to improve and personalize our Services for you. If you do not want us to collect location information, you may disable that feature on your mobile device.
