Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how We will treat it.
If you do not agree with our policies and practices, PLEASE do not use our App.
Yumi Limited, a limited liability company organized in Hong Kong (“Yumi,” “Company,” “We” or “Us”) respects your privacy and We are committed to protecting it through our compliance with this policy.
This policy describes the types of information We may collect from you or that you may provide when you download the App from the Apple App Store or Google Play and such other related sites and mobile applications as Yumi may create (collectively, the “App”) and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.
The App enables people (each, a “User” and, collectively, the “Users”) who live close to one another to connect and meet, all while ensuring 100% anonymity for everyone involved. Some User Content is available to all Users and other User Content is available to only Members.
Capitalized terms not defined herein are defined in our Terms and Conditions.

We collect different types of information from and about users of our App, including information:

The information We collect automatically may include personal information which We may maintain or associate with personal information We collect in other ways or receive from third parties. It helps us to improve our App and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling us to:
The technologies We use for this automatic data collection may include:
(c) Our use of UUIDs. Rather than use your personal information, We use Universally Unique Identifiers (each, a “UUID’”) which is generated randomly to connect you with your account. We may collect your information repeatedly as your UUID is changed when you:
PLEASE NOTE that you will have more than one account on the App as a result of repeatedly collecting your information. We strongly suggest you delete your account on the App before your UUID changes as a result of the foregoing events so you will have only one account on the App.
(d) Your use of our services. We will collect additional information when you use certain of the services we offer such as messaging and location-based services. In such cases, we will retain and messages that you send to another User as well as those between you and Us, to both resolve any issues that may arise as well as to resolve any technical issues you may be having with the App. If you choose to use the location services feature of your device, We will have access to your location – but the default choice is that the App does NOT use the location services of your device. Additionally, if you contact customer service for any reason, We will obtain your email address. Other than messages you send to Us, we will not access messages between Users unless (a) requested/required by law enforcement or an official order of any court with competent jurisdiction, or (b) required to resolve any dispute between Users.
Owing to the unique nature of the App, your profile includes only the Essential Information and, in your discretion, the Optional Information, none of which identifies you individually (unless you are photographed with such information or you say so in your recording). We use that information for the sole purpose of better understanding our audience as a whole and enhancing our services.
You grant us permission to make Essential Information and, to the extent you provide it, Optional Information public.
Our staff has limited access to the information you provide in your profile, as you may amend it from time to time, and our staff may access that information only for the purpose of assisting you to edit or delete that information, as well as for assisting you in the use of our App or in resolving Disputes.
We do not collect any information that can personally identify you. Consequently, we have no personal information to disclose or sell.
We may sell aggregated information as to our users’ Essential Information and Optional Information to parties who may be interested in informing you about goods and services that they feel you may be interested in.
We may convey or transfer whatever information (which does not include your personal information) we have:
We may disclose your whatever information we have:
We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:
We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However, these third parties may provide you with ways to choose to not have your information collected or used in this way. You can opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative (”NAI”) on the NAI’s website.
We employ measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where We have given you (or where you have created) an account for access to certain parts of our App, you are responsible for keeping this account confidential. We ask you not to share your acount with anyone.
No data transmissions over the Internet, cell-phone connections or Wi-Fi can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. We cannot guarantee the security of any information communicated by or to other Users. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the App. Once We receive your information, We take reasonable measures to secure it on our systems.
If We learn of a security breach, We may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the App or providing personal information to us, you agree that We can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of the App. We may post a notice on the App if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances.
We will keep information you store with us for as long as We need it to make the App available to you; and We may store, use and/or transmit information in locations around the world, including those outside your country. Even if you delete your account, We will keep this information and any data collected regarding all activities in which you have already engaged pursuant to your use of the App for a period of time as we deem appropriate but no longer than as allowed by applicable law.
Under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), California residents have certain rights regarding our collection, use and sharing of personal information. We do not sell your personal information and will not do so in the future without providing you with notice and an opportunity to opt-out of such sale, as required by law. We do not offer financial incentives associated with our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information.
We collect various categories of personal information when you use the App that may include but not be limited to identifiers, commercial information and internet or other electronic network or device activity information. A more detailed description of the information we collect and how we use it is provided above in Sections 4 and 5. Sections 5 and 6 describe the categories of third parties, if any, with whom we share personal information and what information may be shared under different circumstances.
If you are a resident of California, you have the right to request to know what personal information has been collected about you and to access that information. You also have the right to request deletion of your personal information, though exceptions under the CCPA may allow us to retain and use certain personal information notwithstanding your deletion request. You may also send your request by email to [email protected]. We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA. An agent may submit a request on your behalf, but you must verify that your agent is authorized to do so.
