Youtap Limited and its subsidiaries and affiliates (“Youtap” or “we”) respect your preferences concerning the treatment of Personal Information that we may collect. This Policy (“Policy”) lets you know how we collect and use your Personal Information, how you can control its use, and describes our practices regarding information collected by Youtap.
Through your interaction with and use of the Channels and the Services, Youtap may collect Personal Information, which is information that identifies an individual or relates to an identifiable individual. Personal Information may include, but is not limited to:
Youtap may also collect Other Information through your interaction with and use of the Channels and non-Youtap websites, which does not reveal your specific identity or does not directly relate to an individual. Other Information may include, but is not limited to:
In some instances, we may combine Other Information with Personal Information, such as deriving geographical location from your IP address and combining behavioural data about your usage of the Channels with your name. If we combine Other Information with Personal Information, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information.
Youtap and our third party service providers may collect both Personal Information and Other Information from a variety of sources that generally fall into three categories:
(a) Direct Interactions:
We collect Personal Information and Other Information provided by you when you engage us to provide Services to you or through your use of the Channels. This includes activities such as account creation, submission of registrations and forms, provision of sales, technical or consulting services by us, or sales inquiries and transactions.
The types of Personal Information we collect will vary depending on your use of the Services and the Channels.If you do not provide us with all information requested, we may not be able to provide you with the Services and products you have requested.
Wherever it is possible and practicable to do so, we will collect Personal Information directly from you.This may be in person, over the phone, by email or via the Channels.We will not collect Personal Information if it is not necessary to provide you with the Services or for you to use the Channels.
(b) Publicly Available Data and Personal Information collected from Third Parties:
We may collect personal information about you from third parties only where you authorise us to do so, or where such information is publicly available.
(c) Automated Interactions:
When you use the Channels, we may collect general information about you through the use of technologies such as electronic communication protocols, cookies, or embedded URLs (“Automated Interactions”), so that we can provide effective Services and products to you.
Although Youtap’s use of Automated Interactions may change over time as technology evolves, the following descriptions are designed to provide you with additional detail about Youtap’s current approach to information collected from Automated Interactions.
Electronic Communications Protocols:As is true when you visit most websites and apps, Youtap may automatically receive information from you indirectly as part of the communication connection itself, which often consists of network routing information (where you came from), equipment information (browser type or device type), your IP address (which may identify your general geographic location or company), and date and time.
Youtap may also automatically receive and record information about your interaction with the Channels, such as clickstream information (when each Youtap webpage was visited and how much time was spent on the page), how often you access the Channel, performance data, aggregate usage, or general geo-location data.
Cookies:Youtap’s server will query your browser to see if there are “cookies” previously set by our electronic Channels. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a Web server to store on a Web browser so it can later be read back from that browser. Cookies may collect information, including a unique identifier, user preferences, profile information, membership information, and general usage and volume statistical information. Cookies may also be used to collect individualised website use data, provide electronic Channel personalisation, or conduct and measure the effectiveness of advertising in accordance with this Policy. Some cookies may remain on users’ computers after they leave the website. While the majority are set to expire within 1-24 months of your last visit to the website that set the cookie, others may not expire because of their nature, such as cookies that remember opt-out preferences.
Your browser may provide you with information and control over cookies. You can set your browser to alert you when a cookie is being used, and accept or reject the cookie. You can also set your browser to refuse all cookies or accept only cookies returned to the originating servers. Users can generally disable the cookie feature on their browser without affecting their ability to use the site, except in some cases where cookies are used as an essential security feature necessary for transaction completion. Cookies, however, are important to the proper functioning of a site, and disabling them may degrade your experience and interfere with website features and customisations.
Youtap has engaged one or more third party service providers to track and analyse both individualised usage and volume statistical information from interactions with electronic Channels. The service provider(s) may set cookies on behalf of Youtap. Youtap also uses other third party cookies to provide advertising and personalisation services in accordance with this Policy, and to track the performance of Youtap advertisements on our Channels and Youtap e-mails.
Embedded URLs: Youtap may use a tracking technique that employs embedded URLs to allow use of the electronic Channels without cookies. Embedded URLs allow limited information to follow you as you navigate the electronic Channels, but are not associated with Personal Information and are not used beyond the session.
Physical Location: We may collect and share the physical location of your device for purposes consistent with this Policy, such as to provide you with personalised location-based services or content. In some instances, you may be permitted to allow or deny such use of your device’s location, but if you choose to deny such use, we may not be able to provide you with the applicable personalised services or content.
Youtap uses and processes the Personal Information it collects (unless otherwise restricted by applicable law) in the following ways:
We may use, transfer, and disclose Other Information we collect for any purpose, except where applicable law requires otherwise. If we are required to treat Other Information as Personal Information under applicable law, then we will only use it in the same way that we are permitted to use and disclose Personal Information.
In the course of providing our services and products, we may need to disclose your Personal Information to certain third parties, including:
We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law.We may also disclose information about someone whose activities could cause harm to themselves or others (i.e. fraud). Where possible and appropriate, we will notify you of this type of disclosure.
E-mail Marketing. Youtap enables you to opt out of marketing communications. You may opt out of e-mail marketing by using our general unsubscribe automated link that is included in Youtap marketing e-mails.
Cookies and Do Not Track. Youtap enables you to opt out of cookies that are not required to enable core site functionality. Youtap uses its cookies preferences tool to process Internet advertising and tracking preferences but does not respond to any other Do Not Track signals.
Please remember that if you delete your cookies, or use a different browser or computer, you will need to set your cookies preferences again. You may access or change your cookie preferences at any time.
Third Party Permission-Based Lists. On occasion, Youtap may use third-party lists to send communications about Youtap products and services. These lists, which are maintained by third parties, include users eligible under applicable law to receive e-mails from other companies such as Youtap. When we use such lists, the communications will include mechanisms to opt out of receiving Youtap marketing communications.
Youtap uses third parties to administer Youtap advertisements on third party electronic channels. Other Information, such as user community or implied or inferred interests, may be used in the selection of advertising to make sure that it has relevance to the user. Some ads may contain embedded pixels that may write and read cookies or return session connection information that allows advertisers to better determine how many individual users have interacted with the ad.
Youtap may also use advertising technologies and participate in advertising technology networks that collect Other Information from Youtap and non-Youtap websites, as well as from other sources, to show you Youtap-related advertisements on Youtap’s own and third-party websites. These advertisements may be tailored to your perceived interests using retargeting and behavioural advertising technologies, a set of practices collectively referred to as “Interest Based Advertising” in this Policy. Any retargeted or behavioural advertisements served to your browser will contain information on or near it that informs you about the advertising technology partner and how to opt-out of viewing such advertisements. Opting out does not mean that you will stop receiving ads from Youtap. It means that you will stop receiving ads from Youtap that have been targeted to you based on your visits and browsing activity across websites over time.
