When you register for the Service, we collect personally identifiable information about you, such as your name and email address. Once you become a registered user, you may provide additional information in your profile section. Providing additional information is optional. To facilitate your use of the Service, YB Media may automatically collect certain types of information when you access or use the Service. In order to collect this data, YB Media may utilize automated tools and files such as “cookies.” These automated tools and files may reside on our servers or on your computer or device. If you restrict our ability to use automated tools and files, your ability to access and use all or part of the Service may be limited or disabled completely.

The Service is provided through your computer or mobile device. You agree that we may collect and use technical data and related information, including but not limited to: technical information about your device, system and application software, and peripherals, that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support and other services to you (if any) related to such provision of the Services.

YB Media uses your personally identifiable information primarily to provide you with the Service, to facilitate communication between users, to provide customized content on the Service that is of interest to you and to improve the Service.

YB Media may also use any information you have provided as reasonably necessary to administer or provide customer support for the Service, and to provide you with periodic printed or e-mail communications, including newsletters and notifications about new products and services, discounts, special promotions or upcoming events. Users may choose not to receive such newsletters and notifications. We also use such information for research and analytical purposes, to respond to inquiries and for other customer service purposes.

Controlling Your Personal Information

YB Media may make available to users chat rooms, forums, message boards, and other interactive features. You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g. user name, e-mail address) via forums, postings, profiles or other areas of the Service, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in your communication, can be collected, correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of YB Media. Please do not post any personal information on the Service or in other areas that you expect to keep private. You may modify personal information that you have submitted using the Service by accessing the Service and updating your profile information.


YB Media uses the information we collect from and about you to provide YB Media services and features to you, including to measure and improve those services and features, to improve and personalize your experience with both online and off-line YB Media Services by delivering relevant content, advertising and marketing messages, to allow you to comment on content, participate in online games, contests, or rewards programs, to provide you with customer support, and to respond to inquiries. In order to provide you with content and advertising that is more interesting and relevant to you, we may use the information from and about you to make inferences and predictions about your potential areas of interest. We may also use aggregate and anonymous data about your use of and activity on the YB Media services to assist us in this regard.

From time to time, YB Media may enter into relationships with third party service providers who help us provide and maintain the Service (including, but not limited to: analytics companies, advertisers and ad agencies, data management and storage services, et cetera). In those circumstances, YB Media may disclose your personal information, in our sole discretion, so that such service providers may perform those services. These service providers are only permitted to use your information to the extent necessary to enable them to provide their services to us. In these cases, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent such third parties from disclosing your personally identifiable information, except for the purpose of providing the services in question. In addition, YB Media may share your information with business partners to permit them to send you marketing communications, consistent with your choices.

In addition to the foregoing, YB Media will disclose your personally identifiable information as it believes is reasonably necessary to comply with law, regulation or other governmental authority or to prevent harm to yourself or others. Finally, YB Media may disclose your personally identifiable information upon a transfer or sale to another entity of all or substantially all of YB Media’s stock or assets in YB Media’s line of business to which this Privacy Policy relates or upon any bankruptcy or other corporate reorganization.


For your convenience, we may provide links to certain third party websites or referrals to certain third parties’ products or services. If you choose to visit a third party’s website or use its products or services, please be aware that the third party’s privacy policy, and not the YB Media privacy policy, will govern your activities and any information you disclose while interacting with the third party.


Because any personally identifiable information you submit to YB Media is purely voluntary and should not be of a particularly sensitive nature, we employ our standard security measures with respect to this information and do not use special encryption methods at this time. User accounts are secured by user-created passwords. Please note that YB Media cannot guarantee the security of user account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.

It is your responsibility to take appropriate steps to protect against unauthorized access to your computer or mobile device. YB Media is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or phones or for any activity on your account via unauthorized access.

In the event that we learn that we have collected personally identifiable information from anyone under 13 years of age without prior parental consent, we will take steps to promptly delete such information. By providing your personal information to YB Media or through the Service, you represent that you are 13 years of age or older.
