Privacy Policy

When you use these services—and any others we at Yakki roll out, whether in the app or elsewhere—you’ll share some information with us. We get that this can affect your privacy. So we want to be upfront about the information we collect, how we use it, whom we share it with, and the choices we give you to control, access, and update your information.

Information We Collect

There are three basic categories of information we collect:

  • Information you choose to give us.
  • Information we get when you use our services.

  • Information we get from third parties.

Here’s a little more detail on each of these categories.

Information You Choose to Give Us

When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. For example, most of our services require you to set up a basic Yakki account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: a unique username you’d like to go by, a password, an email address, a phone number, and your date of birth. To make it easier for others to find you, we may also ask you to provide us with some additional information that will be publicly visible on our services, such as profile pictures, a name, or other useful identifying information. Other services, such as commerce products, may also require you to provide us with a debit or credit card number and its associated account information.

Information We Get When You Use Our Services

When you use our services, we collect information about which of those services you’ve used and how you’ve used them.

  • Usage Information. We collect information about your activity through our services. 
  • Content Information. We collect information about the content you provide, such as if the recipient has viewed the content and the metadata that is provided with the content.
  • Device Information. We collect device-specific information, such as the hardware model, operating system version, advertising identifier, unique application identifiers, unique device identifiers, browser type, language and wireless network.
  • Information Collected by Cookies and Other Technologies. Like most online services and mobile applications, we may use cookies and other technologies, such as web beacons, web storage, and unique advertising identifiers, to collect information about your activity, browser, and device. We may also use these technologies to collect information when you interact with services we offer through one of our partners, such as commerce features. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually remove or reject browser cookies through the settings on your browser or device. Keep in mind, though, that removing or rejecting cookies could affect the availability and functionality of our services. To learn more about how we use cookies and your choices, please check out our Cookie Statement.
  • Log Information. We also collect log information when you use our website. That information includes, among other things:
    • details about how you’ve used our services.
    • device information, such as your web browser type and language.
    • access times.
    • pages viewed.
    • IP address.
    • identifiers associated with cookies or other technologies that may uniquely identify your device or browser.

    • pages you visited before or after navigating to our website.

Information We Collect from Third Parties

We may collect information that other users provide about you when they use our services. For example, if another user allows us to collect information from their device phonebook—and you’re one of that user’s contacts—we may combine the information we collect from that user’s phonebook with other information we have collected about you. We may also obtain information from other companies that are owned or operated by us, or any other third-party sources, and combine that with the information we collect through our services.

How We Use Information

What do we do with the information we collect? The short answer is: Provide you with an amazing set of products and services that we relentlessly improve. Here are some of the ways we do that:

  • develop, operate, improve, deliver, maintain, and protect our products and services.
  • communicate with you.
  • enhance the safety and security of our products and services.
  • verify your identity and prevent fraud or other unauthorized or illegal activity.
  • use information we’ve collected from cookies and other technology to enhance the services and your experience with them.
  • enforce our Terms of Service and other usage policies.

Analytics and Advertising Services Provided by Others

We may let other companies use cookies, web beacons, and similar tracking technologies on the services. These companies may collect information about how you use the services and other websites and online services over time and across different services. This information may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, and better understand your online activity.

Revisions to the Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. But when we do, we’ll let you know one way or another. Sometimes, we’ll let you know by revising the date at the end of the Privacy Policy that’s available on our website. Other times, we may provide you with additional notice.

Cookie Policy

Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use information from and about you when you use Yakki and other Yakki services. We have provided this cookie policy to tell you more about why we use cookies and other similar identifying technologies, the types of cookies and similar technologies we use, and your choices in relation to these technologies.

Cookie Overview

A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser or device by websites, mobile apps, and advertisements that you access or use. This data is stored on your browser or device and helps websites and mobile apps remember things about you. For example, cookies may help us remember certain preferences you have selected, such as your language preference.

Our Use of Cookies

Like most online services, Yakki uses cookies for a number of reasons, like protecting your Yakki data and account, helping us see which features are most popular, counting visitors to a page, improving our users’ experience, keeping our services secure, and just generally providing you with a better, more intuitive, and satisfying experience. The cookies we use generally fall into one of the following categories.


We use these cookies to remember your settings and preferences. 
For example, we may use these cookies to remember your language preferences.


We use these cookies to help identify and prevent security risks. 
For example, we may use these cookies to store your web-session information to prevent others from changing your password without your username and password.


We use these cookies to collect information about how you interact with our services and to help us improve them.
For example, we may use these cookies to determine if you have interacted with a certain page.


We use these cookies to help us improve our services. 
For example, we can use these cookies to learn more about which features are the most popular with our users and which ones might need some tweaks.


We use these cookies to deliver advertisements, to make them more relevant and meaningful to consumers, and to track the efficiency of our advertising campaigns, both on our services and on other websites or mobile apps.

Pixels, Local Storage, and Other Similar Technologies

We may also use other similar technologies on our services, such as pixel tags and local storage. We use these technologies to do things like help us see what features are most popular, create a more personalized experience, and deliver relevant ads. Pixel tags (also called clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixels) are small blocks of code installed in or on a webpage, mobile app, or advertisement. These tags can retrieve certain information about your browser and device such as: operating system, browser type, device type and version, referring website, website visited, IP address, and other similar information. Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or mobile app to store and retrieve data on an individual’s computer, mobile phone, or other device.

Your Choices

Your browser probably lets you choose whether to accept browser cookies. And you may even be able to choose or limit the use of cookies and other similar technologies in mobile apps. But these technologies are an important part of how our services work, so removing or rejecting cookies, or limiting the use of other similar technologies could affect the availability and functionality of our services.

Web browser opt-out

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you don’t want to allow cookies you may have some options. Your browser may provide you with a set of tools to manage cookies. You can usually set your browser to refuse some cookies or all cookies. For example, some browsers give you the option to allow first-party cookies but block third-party cookies. So what is the difference between first-party and third-party cookies?

  • A "first-party" cookie is served by the page or domain that you are visiting. So for example, when you visit Yakki and we serve a cookie for purposes of remembering your settings that is a first-party cookie.
  • A "third-party" cookie is served by a company that doesn’t operate the page or domain you are visiting. So for example, when you visit Yakki and Google serves a cookie on Yakki for Yakki's analytics that is a third-party cookie.

You may also be able to remove cookies from your browser. Your ability to manage cookies through a mobile browser, however, may be limited. For more information about how to manage your cookie settings, please follow the instructions provided by your browser which are usually located within the “Help,” “Tools,” or “Edit” settings.
