PRIVACY POLICY


1. Who we are

We are Yubbi - a platform whose purpose is to connect strangers, already united by a common passion for gaming.

The fact that they are notyet close is a sad mistake.

But we'll fix it. To find a close friend is easier than it sounds.

The platform is owned and administered by MadRabbit FZE LLC (A-29-01-05-19 - Flamingo Villas, Ajman, UAE).

The terms (“us”, “we”, the “Company” or “Yubbi”) refer to MadRabbit FZE LLC.


2. Our Commitments

At Yubbi your privacy is a priority. Your privacy is at the core of the way we design and build the services and products, so that you can fully trust them and focus on new friends finding.

We appreciate that you put your trust in us when you provide us with your information and we do not take this lightly.


3. Intelligibility and transparency

Because we use many of the same online services you do, we know that insufficient information and overly complicated language are common issues in privacy policies. We take the opposite approach: we have written our Privacy Policy in plain language. We actually want you to read our policies and understand our privacy practices.


4. Policy validity in time

This Privacy Policy applies beginning July 1, 2021.

This is the first edition of the Yubbi Privacy Policy.

We are just starting, and will gradually develop our functionality, including based on your feedback. In this regard, this Policy may contain a description of some processes that are not yet included in our product, but are already being developed for you.

In addition, with the development of the project and the inclusion of new data in the processing, this Policy will change by presenting it in a new edition. From the moment of the publishing of the new policy, all issues of collection, processing and storage of personal data will be governed by such a new policy. In this case, the old versions of the policy will be available to users by links. So, if necessary, each user can see how it worked before, and how it works now.


5. Where This Privacy Policy Applies

This Privacy Policy applies to websites, apps, events and other services operated by Yubbi. For simplicity, we refer to all of these as our “services” in this Privacy Policy. To make it extra clear, we’ve added links to this Privacy Policy on all applicable services.

Some services may require their own unique privacy policy. If a particular service has its own privacy policy, then that policy - not this Privacy Policy - applies.


6. Information We Collect

It goes without saying, we can’t help you develop really interesting connections without some information about you, such as basic profile details and the types of people you’d like to meet. We also collect information generated as you use our services, for example access logs, as well as information from third parties, like when you access our services through a social media account. If you want additional info, we go into more detail below.


6.1. Information you give us

You choose to give us certain information when using our services. This includes:


6.2. Information we receive from others

In addition to the information you provide us directly, we receive information about you from others, including:


6.3. Information collected when you use our services

When you use our services, we collect information about which features you’ve used, how you’ve used them and the devices you use to access our services. See below for more details:


7. Cookies and Other Similar Data Collection Technologies

We use and may allow others to use cookies and similar technologies (e.g., web beacons, pixels) to recognize you and/or your device(s). You may read our Cookie Policy for more information on why we use them (such as authenticating you, remembering your preferences and settings, analyzing site traffic and trends, delivering and measuring the effectiveness of advertising campaigns, allowing you to use social features) and how you can better control their use, through your browser settings and other tools.

Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) have a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) feature that tells a website that a user does not want to have his or her online activity tracked. If a website that responds to a DNT signal receives a DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many businesses, including Yubbi, do not currently respond to DNT signals.


8. How We Use Information

The main reason we use your information is to deliver and improve our services. Additionally, we use your info to help keep you safe and to provide you with advertising that may be of interest to you.

9. Legal Bases

To process your information as described above, we rely on the following legal bases:

9.1. Provide our service to you. Most of the time, the reason we process your information is to provide you with our services. For instance, as you go about using our service to build meaningful connections, we use your information to maintain your account and your profile, to make it viewable to other users and recommend other users to you.

9.2. Legitimate interests. We may use your information where we have legitimate interests to do so. For instance, we analyze users’ behavior on our services to continuously improve our offerings, we suggest offers we think might interest you, and we process information for administrative, fraud detection and other legal purposes.

9.3. Consent. From time to time, we may ask for your consent to use your information for certain specific reasons. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us as it is provided at the end of this Privacy Policy.

9.4. Legal bases for Personal Data Processing (for Subjects of the GDPR Regulation).

If the Yubbi obtains consent from the personal data subject to implement personal data processing procedures, Clause 1 (a) of Article 6 of the GDPR shall be the legal foundation.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to provide personal data subject with the services Clause 1 (b) of Article 6 of the GDPR shall serve as the legal foundation.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill the legal obligation imposed on the Company, Clause 1 (c) of Article 6 of the GDPR shall serve as the legal foundation.

If the need to process personal data is caused by the vital interests of the personal data subject or another individual, Clause 1 (d) of Article 6 of the GDPR shall serve as the legal foundation.

If data processing is necessary in order to respect the legitimate interest of the Yubbi or a third-party interest, and the fundamental rights and freedoms of the personal data subject do not have priority over the above interest, Clause 1 (f) of Article 6 of the GDPR shall serve as the legal foundation.


10. How We Share Information

Since our goal is to help you make meaningful connections, the main sharing of users’ information is, of course, with other users. We also share some users’ information with service providers and partners who assist us in operating the services, and, in some cases, with legal authorities. Read on for more details about how your information is shared with others.


10.1. With other users

Based on the very essence of our services - you share information with other users when you voluntarily disclose information on the service (including your public profile). Please be careful with your information and make sure that the content you share is stuff that you’re comfortable being publicly viewable since neither you nor we can control what others do with your information once you share it.

If you choose to limit the audience for all or part of your profile or for certain content or information about you, then it will be visible according to your settings.


10.2. With our service providers and partners

We use third parties to help us operate and improve our services. These third parties assist us with various tasks, including data hosting and maintenance, analytics, customer care, marketing, advertising, payment processing and security operations.

We may also share information with partners who distribute and assist us in advertising our services. For instance, we may share limited information on you in hashed, non-human readable form to advertising partners.

We follow a strict vetting process prior to engaging any service provider or working with any partner. All of our service providers and partners must agree to strict confidentiality obligations.


10.3. For corporate transactions

We may transfer your information if we are involved, whether in whole or in part, in a merger, sale, acquisition, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, bankruptcy or other change of ownership or control.


10.4. When required by law

We may disclose your information if reasonably necessary: (i) to comply with a legal process, such as a court order, subpoena or search warrant, government / law enforcement investigation or other legal requirements; (ii) to assist in the prevention or detection of crime (subject in each case to applicable law); or (iii) to protect the safety of any person.


10.5. To enforce legal rights

We may also share information: (i) if disclosure would mitigate our liability in an actual or threatened lawsuit; (ii) as necessary to protect our legal rights and legal rights of our users, business partners or other interested parties; (iii) to enforce our agreements with you; and (iv) to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing.


10.6. With your consent or at your request

We may ask for your consent to share your information with third parties. In any such case, we will make it clear why we want to share the information.

We may use and share non-personal information (meaning information that, by itself, does not identify who you are such as device information, general demographics, general behavioral data, geolocation in de-identified form), as well as personal information in hashed, non-human readable form, under any of the above circumstances. We may also share this information with third parties (notably advertisers) to develop and deliver targeted advertising on our services and on websites or applications of third parties, and to analyze and report on advertising you see. We may combine this information with additional non-personal information or personal information in hashed, non-human readable form collected from other sources.


11. Cross-Border Data Transfers

Sharing of information laid out this Policy sometimes involves cross-border data transfers, for instance to the United States of America and other jurisdictions. As an example, where the service allows for users to be located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), their personal information is transferred to countries outside of the EEA. We use standard contract clauses approved by the European Commission or other suitable safeguard to permit data transfers from the EEA to other countries. Standard contractual clauses are commitments between companies transferring personal data, binding them to protect the privacy and security of your data


12. Your Rights

We want you to be in control of your information, so we have provided you with the following tools:

12.1. Access / Update tools in the service. Tools and account settings that help you to access, rectify or delete information that you provided to us and that’s associated with your account directly within the service. If you have any question on those tools and settings, please contact our customer care team for help.

12.2. Device permissions. Mobile platforms have permission systems for specific types of device data and notifications, such as phone book and location services as well as push notifications. You can change your settings on your device to either consent or oppose the collection of the corresponding information or the display of the corresponding notifications. Of course, if you do that, certain services may lose full functionality.

12.3. Deletion. You can delete your account by using the corresponding functionality directly on the service.

12.4. We want you to be aware of your privacy rights. Here are a few key points to remember:

12.4.1. Reviewing your information. Applicable privacy laws may give you the right to review the personal information we keep about you (depending on the jurisdiction, this may be called right of access, right of portability or variations of those terms). You can request a copy of your personal information by sending us a request.

12.4.2. Updating your information. If you believe that the information, we hold about you is inaccurate or that we are no longer entitled to use it and want to request its rectification, deletion or object to its processing, please contact in this matter. For your protection and the protection of all of our users, we may ask you to provide proof of identity before we can answer the above requests. Keep in mind, we may reject requests for certain reasons, including if the request is unlawful or if it may infringe on trade secrets or intellectual property or the privacy of another user. If you wish to receive information relating to another user, such as a copy of any messages you received from him or her through our service, the other user will have to contact our Privacy Officer to provide their written consent before the information is released. Also, we may not be able to accommodate certain requests to object to the processing of personal information, notably where such requests would not allow us to provide our service to you anymore. For instance, we cannot provide our service if we do not have your date of birth.

12.4.3. Uninstall. You can stop all information collection by an app by uninstalling it using the standard uninstall process for your device. If you uninstall the app from your mobile device, the unique identifier associated with your device will continue to be stored. If you re-install the application on the same mobile device, we will be able to re-associate this identifier to your previous transactions and activities.

12.4.4. Accountability. In certain countries, including in the European Union, you have a right to lodge a complaint with the appropriate data protection authority if you have concerns about how we process your personal information. The data protection authority you can lodge a complaint with notably may be that of your habitual residence or where you work.


13. Residents of California

If you are a California resident, you can request a notice disclosing the categories of personal information about you that we have shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year. To request this notice, please submit your request. Please allow 30 days for a response. For your protection and the protection of all of our users, we may ask you to provide proof of identity before we can answer such a request.


14. How We Protect Your Information

We work hard to protect you from unauthorized access to or alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information. As with all technology companies, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information will always remain secure.

We regularly monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks and regularly review our information collection, storage and processing practices to update our physical, technical and organizational security measures.

We may suspend your use of all or part of the services without notice if we suspect or detect any breach of security. If you believe that your account or information is no longer secure, please notify us immediately.


15. How Long We Retain Your Information

We keep your personal information only as long as we need it for legitimate business purposes. To protect the safety and security of our users on and off our services, we implement a safety retention window of three months following account deletion. During this period, account information will be retained although the account will of course not be visible on the services anymore.

In practice, we delete or anonymize your information upon deletion of your account (following the safety retention window) or after two years of continuous inactivity, unless:

  1. we must keep it to comply with applicable law (for instance, some “traffic data” is kept for one year to comply with statutory data retention obligations);
  2. we must keep it to evidence our compliance with applicable law (for instance, records of consents to our Terms, Privacy Policy and other similar consents are kept for five years);
  3. there is an outstanding issue, claim or dispute requiring us to keep the relevant information until it is resolved; or
  4. the information must be kept for our legitimate business interests, such as fraud prevention and enhancing users' safety and security. For example, information may need to be kept to prevent a user who was banned for unsafe behavior or security incidents from opening a new account.

Keep in mind that even though our systems are designed to carry out data deletion processes according to the above guidelines, we cannot promise that all data will be deleted within a specific timeframe due to technical constraints.


16. Children's Privacy

Our services are restricted to users who are 18 years of age or older. We do not permit users under the age of 18 on our platform and we do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If you suspect that a user is under the age of 18, please use the reporting mechanism available through the service.


17. Privacy Policy Changes

Because we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to help you build meaningful connections, this policy may change over time. We will notify you before any material changes take effect so that you have time to review the changes.
