We collect and use your information below to provide, understand, and improve our Services.
Basic Account Information: If you choose to create a Yellist account, you must provide us with some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. On Yellist, your username is always listed publicly, including on your profile page and in search results, and you can use either your real name or a pseudonym. You can create and manage multiple Yellist accounts. Some of our product features, such as searching and viewing public Yellist user profiles and/or Public content do not require you to create an account.
Public Posts and Information: This information is publicly available, and what we collect to give you a better Yellist experience. It includes: i) Profile information such as a short biography, your website, date of birth, or a picture, and ii) Public and Platform posts, and the metadata provided, such as comments and time posted.
Private and Collaborative Content: Private and collaborative documents are treated as secure IP and cannot
be viewed or accessed by us, absent law or legal procedure. For the purposes of this agreement, only non-uploaded
content (web links and associated metadata) will be collected for natural language/AI development.
Public (web searchable), Ecosystem (platform users only), Collaborative (friends and followers), and Private settings are how you control your content - for rules for each setting, click here.
Direct Messages and Non-Public Communications: We provide certain features that allow you to communicate more privately. For example, you can use our Internal Email system or Direct Messaging to have private conversations with other Yellist users. When you privately communicate, we process these communications, and the information related to them as a service. However, as believers in the right to privacy, and with the ability to train our AI through context, we do not need to read your messages, be it by humans or software enabled - so we don't- that's our promise to you.
Using Our Services: We receive information when you view content on or otherwise interact with our Services, even if you have not created an account ("Log Data"). For example, when you visit our websites, we may receive information about you. This Log Data may include your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device information (including device and application IDs), search terms, or cookie information. We also receive Log Data when you click on, view or interact with links on our Services. We use Log Data to make inferences, like what topics you may be interested in, and to customize the suggested content we show you.
Personalizing Across Your Devices: When you log into your account with a browser or device, we will associate that browser or device with your account for purposes such as authentication and personalization.
Because Yellist is not monetized through advertising, we very rarely need to share your information with anyone. Therefore, we do not disclose your private personal information except in the limited circumstances described here.
User Consent or Direction: We may share or disclose your information at your direction, such as when you authorize a third-party web client or application to access your account or when you direct us to share your feedback with a business.
Public Information: We may share or disclose your public information, such as your public user profile information, public Posts, or the people you follow or that follow you. Remember, your privacy and visibility settings control whether your Posts and certain profile information are made public. Other information, like your username, is always public on Yellist, unless you delete your account.
Non-Personal, Aggregated, or Device-Level Information: We may share or disclose non-personal, aggregated, or device-level information such as the total number of times people engaged with a post. This information does not include your name, email address, phone number, or Yellist handle.
If you are a registered user of our Services, we provide you with tools and account settings to access, correct, delete, or modify the personal information you provided to us and associated with your account.
You can also permanently delete your Yellist account. When deactivated, your account, including your name, username, and public profile, will no longer be viewable on Yellist.com.
Keep in mind that search engines and other third parties may still retain copies of your public information, like your user profile information and public Posts, even after you have deleted the information from the Yellist Services or deactivated your account.
