This policy is approved by Your Limited Ventures to apply to all YOUR projects. It may not be circumvented, eroded, or ignored by local policies.
YOUR is built by its community for everyone. To facilitate collective working we need to be able to gather, share, and analyze information about our users as we seek new ways to make YOUR platform better, safer, information richer and more beneficial for all parties.
YOUR believes that everybody must have the possibility to use our platforms. This reason we think you shouldn't have to provide nonpublic Personal Information to participate in the free product content information movement. You do not have to provide things like your real name, address, or date of birth to sign up for a standard creator account.
We do not sell or rent your Personal Information, nor do we give it to others to sell you anything. We use your data to optimize our platforms for the community and thus you.
After all, it's people like you, the champions of free knowledge, who make it possible for the Wikimedia Sites to not only exist, but also grow and thrive.
“YOUR”, “we”, “us”, “our”
YOUR, the organization behind your.io and yourcontent.io.
“YOUR platforms”, “our platforms”, “our services”
"you", "your", "me"
This is you, regardless of whether you’re an individual, organization, or group, and regardless of whether you’re using YOUR platforms and or services on behalf of yourself or someone else.
Content you create, add or change on any of YOUR platforms
Content you curated from the creations on any of YOUR platforms
Content you created, added, changed or curated on any of YOUR platforms
Information you provide us or information we collect that could be used to personally identify you. The following information we see as “Personal Information”, if it is otherwise nonpublic and can be used to identify you:
-> your full name, address, phone number, email address, password, identification number on government-issued ID, IP address, user-agent information, payment account number, Wallet address;
-> sensitive data such as date of birth, gender, sexual orientation, racial or ethnic origins, marital or familial status, medical conditions or disabilities, political affiliation, and religion.
"third party", "third parties"
These are individuals, entities, platforms (websites), services, products, and applications that are not controlled, managed, or operated by us (YOUR). This includes other YOUR users and independent organizations or groups who help promote the YOUR revolution such as user groups as well as volunteers, employees, directors, officers, grant recipients, and contractors of those organizations or groups.
When you create or curate to any of the YOUR platforms, including on community discussion pages, we’re creating records of all these activities. These activities can be; creating, changing and/or adding content, curating creations if they are complinend with our terms and conditions. The platforms will show history when your contributions or deletion was made, as well as your username, or IP address. We may use your contributions, either aggregated with the contributions of others or individually, to create new features or data-related products for you.
Unless this Policy says otherwise, you should assume that information that you actively contribute to the YOUR platforms, including Personal Information, is publicly visible and can be found by search engines (think about Google, Bing, etc). Like most things on the Internet, anything you share may be copied and redistributed throughout the Internet by other people. Please do not contribute any information that you are uncomfortable making permanently public, like revealing your real name or location in your contributions.
You should be aware that specific data made public by you or aggregated data that is made public by us can be used by anyone for analysis and to infer further information, such as which country a user is from, political affiliation and gender.
Everyone is free to create an account with one of the platforms of YOUR. Everyone can read and/or contribute to the YOUR platforms without an account. To use additional services you’re required to have an account. When you don’t have an account your contribution will be publicly attributed to the IP address associated with your device.
If you want to create an account, we require only an email,username and a password. We can't help you recover your password without an email.
To gain a better understanding of the demographics of our users, to localize our platform services and to learn how we can improve them, we may ask you for more demographic information, such as gender or age, about yourself. We will tell you if such information is intended to be public or private, so that you can make an informed decision about whether you want to provide us with that information. Providing such information is always completely optional. It is always your own choice!
Your username on the YOUR platforms will be publicly visible, please be careful about revealing your real name or other Personal Information in your username. Your password is only used to verify the account. Your IP address is also automatically submitted to us, and we record it temporarily. This is to protect YOUR users; in the event of abuse, IP addresses may be associated with usernames as part of an investigation. No other Personal Information is required: no name, no email address, no date of birth, and no credit card information.
Once created, user accounts cannot be removed entirely (although you can usually hide the information on your user page if you choose to). This is because your public contributions must be associated with their author (the user who created the content).
When a user visits one of the YOUR platforms, we store automatically the IP address that we receive from the device (or you proxy address) you are using to access the internet. This can be used to infer your geographical location for automatic language recognition.
When a user consents, YOUR can use GPS ( and other commonly used technologies to pinpoint the location of the user) to show the user more relevant content. This information is kept confidential, except as provided in this Policy.
The location data is passed through the device automatically. We store this data. In the case of a user uploading a photo, we may receive metadata, such as the place and time you took the photo, automatically from your device. Be aware that, unlike location information collected using GPS signals, the default setting on your device typically includes the metadata in your photo or video. When this is not wanted, please change your settings on your device.
To make YOUR platforms better for the community through learning more about how everyone uses them. Example; the count of how many times you visited your.io, which pages, which product content you searched for, which services used, etc. We also want this Policy and our practices to reflect our community's values. That is why we keep information related to your use of the YOUR platforms confidential, except as provided in this Policy.
The browser automatically provides us with information when you visit our platforms. This includes when you use an online tool on a third-party platform that loads information coming from the YOUR platforms. This information includes the type of device you are using, the type and version of your browser, your browser's language preference, the type and version of your device's operating system, in some cases the name of your internet service provider or mobile carrier, the website that referred you to the YOUR platforms, which pages you request and visit, and the date and time of each request you make to the YOUR platforms.
Depending on which technology we use, locally stored data may include text, Personal Information (example; IP address), and information about your use of the Wikimedia Sites (example; username).
We use this information to make your experience with the YOUR platforms safer and better, to gain a greater understanding of user preferences and their interaction with the YOUR platforms, and to generally improve our features. We will never use third-party cookies, unless permission from you to do so. If you ever come across a third-party data collection tool that has not been authorized by you, please contact us through email@example.com to report this.
You can always remove or disable some or all locally stored data through your browser settings, depending on your browser. While locally stored data may not be necessary to use our sites, some features will not function properly if you disable locally stored data.
- Provide you with a customizable experience, such as using cookies to know your language preference or night/day display, to remember the user preferences you set so we can provide you with the customized look and feel that you want.
- Understand how you use the YOUR platforms across different devices, so that we can make our varied YOUR platforms more efficient and effective for you.
- Make the YOUR platforms more convenient to use, such as by using cookies to maintain your session when you log in or to remember your username in the login field.
The purpose of sharing your personal information, if you agree, can be when you created content and this content needs to be curated before it becomes active on the platforms. Here are more reasons for sharing your information:
We will access, use, preserve, and/or disclose your Personal Information if we reasonably believe it necessary to satisfy a valid and legally enforceable warrant, subpoena, court order, law or regulation, or other judicial or administrative order. However, if we believe that a particular request for disclosure of a user's information is legally invalid or an abuse of the legal system and the affected user does not intend to oppose the disclosure themselves, we will try our best to fight it. We are committed to notifying you via email at least ten (14) calendar days, when possible, before we disclose your Personal Information in response to a legal demand. However, we may only provide notice if we are not legally restrained from contacting you, there is no credible threat to life or limb that is created or increased by disclosing the request, and you have provided us with an email address.
YOUR platforms are a community that works together to create these unique services, users writing most of the policies and selecting from amongst themselves users to hold certain special rights. These rights may include access to limited amounts of otherwise nonpublic information about recent contributions and activity by other users. They use this access to help protect against vandalism and abuse, fight harassment of other users, and generally try to minimize disruptive behavior on the YOUR platforms. These various user-selected groups have their own privacy and confidentiality guidelines, but all such groups are supposed to agree to follow our Access to Nonpublic Information Policy. These user-selected groups are accountable to other users through checks and balances: users are selected through a community-driven process and overseen by their peers through a logged history of their actions. However, the legal names of these users are not known to YOUR.
We hope that this never comes up, but we may disclose your Personal Information if we believe that it's reasonably necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm or death to a person, or to protect our organization, employees, contractors, users, or the public. We may also disclose your Personal Information if we reasonably believe it necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise assess and address potential spam, malware, fraud, abuse, unlawful activity, and security or technical concerns.
To help us run or improve the YOUR platforms for you and other users, we use third-party service providers or contractors. We can give these providers access to your Personal Information if needed to perform their services for us or to use their tools and services. We put requirements, such as confidentiality agreements, in place to help ensure that these service providers treat your Personal Information consistently with, and no less protective of your privacy than, the principles of this Policy.
A Decentralized / Open source platform that YOUR will become, depends on its contributors. Part of these contributors are the developers that spend time on writing and testing code to help it improve and evolve with our users’ needs. To facilitate their work, we give some developers limited access to systems that contain your Personal Information, but only as reasonably necessary for them to develop and contribute to the YOUR platforms.
All the information that you put on public locations on the YOUR platforms are public. Example; if you put your mailing address on your profile page, that is public, and not specifically protected by this Policy. And if you contribute without registering or logging into your account, your IP address will be seen publicly. Please think carefully about your desired level of privacy before you disclose Personal Information on your user page or elsewhere.
How do we protect your personal information; we will always strive to protect you Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. We facilitate this through a variety of physical and technical measures, policies, and procedures designed to protect our systems and your Personal Information. Sadly, there's no such thing as completely secure data transmission or storage, for this reason we can't guarantee that our security will not be breached.
Once we receive Personal Information from you, we keep it for the shortest possible time that is consistent with the maintenance, understanding, and improvement of the YOUR platforms, and our obligations under applicable law. In most instances, Personal Information is deleted, aggregated or de-identified after 90 days. Non-Personal Information may be retained indefinitely as appropriate.
Please remember that when you make a contribution to any YOUR platform, the page history will show when your contribution was made, your username, or your IP address. The transparency of the services’ contribution and revision histories is critical to their efficacy and trustworthiness.
If you would like to request to access, update or restrict/object to the processing of Personal Information, or receive a copy of your Personal Information for purposes of transmitting it to another organization, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note also that you may be able to exercise some of these rights without our intervention. Example; if you have an account, you can access and update some Personal Information in your account settings. You may also manage what kinds of notifications you receive and how often you receive them by going to your notifications settings in your account.
