We’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you’re not familiar with terms like cookies, IP addresses, pixel tags and browsers, then read about these key terms first. Your privacy matters to Saycle so whether you are new to Saycle or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices – and if you have any questions contact us.
We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which ads you’ll find most useful, the people who matter most to you online, or which YouTube videos you might like.
Information you give us. For example, many of our services require you to sign up for a Saycle Account. When you do, we’ll ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or credit card to store with your account. If you want to take full advantage of the sharing features we offer, we might also ask you to create a publicly visible Saycle Profile, which may include your name and photo.
Information we get from your use of our services. We collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like when you watch a video on YouTube, visit a website that uses our advertising services, or view and interact with our ads and content. This information includes:
Our Saycle Analytics product helps businesses and site owners analyze the traffic to their websites and apps. When used in conjunction with our advertising services, such as those using the DoubleClick cookie, Saycle Analytics information is linked, by the Saycle Analytics customer or by Saycle, using Saycle technology, with information about visits to multiple sites.
Information we collect when you are signed in to Saycle, in addition to information we obtain about you from partners, may be associated with your Saycle Account. When information is associated with your Saycle Account, we treat it as personal information. For more information about how you can access, manage or delete information that is associated with your Saycle Account, visit the Transparency and choice section of this policy.
We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Saycle and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant search results and ads.
We may use the name you provide for your Saycle Profile across all of the services we offer that require a Saycle Account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your Saycle Account so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible Saycle Profile information, such as your name and photo.
If you have a Saycle Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on Saycle or on third-party applications connected to your Saycle Account in our services, including displaying in ads and other commercial contexts. We will respect the choices you make to limit sharing or visibility settings in your Saycle Account.
When you contact Saycle, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. One of the products we use to do this on our own services is Saycle Analytics.
Saycle processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:
You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Saycle unless one of the following circumstances applies:
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Saycle if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites.
We work hard to protect Saycle and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:
We keep your personal information private and safe — and put you in control.
