Information Collected and Used
Yalla.Media's primary objective in collecting user information is to provide and enhance the Services and to enable users to easily navigate and enjoy the Services.
When you install any of the Yalla.Media games or applications, we may collect and record the information you provide us voluntarily through www.facebook.com ("Facebook") in accordance with the policies and terms of Facebook.
The types of personal information collected in accordance with the activities listed above may vary depending on the activity.This "personal information" is defined as information about you that can be used to contact or identify you. Personal information may include your: (1) name, (2) Facebook user identification number (if applicable), (3) email address or (4) date of birth. Additionally, we may acquire information from you through your: (1) access and participation in message boards on the Service (2) emailing of a question to our customer support or (3) your purchase of a virtual product of any type. Please note that because a third party site manages the purchases of virtual goods offered by the Services, we do not have access to your credit/debit card details and billing information. Yalla.Media may also invite you to share non-personal information about yourself which may include but is not limited to: (1) your gender; (2) information about the hardware you may own; (3) your favorite websites, friend information and fan pages (collectively referred to as "non-personal information"). If non-personal information is collected for an activity that also requires personal information, Yalla.Media may combine your non-personal information with your personal information in an attempt to provide you with a better user experience, to improve the quality and value of the Services and to analyze how the Services are used.
In addition to information collected as described above, you may choose to share additional information about yourself throughout the Services, such as in app or on message boards. Any actions you perform with other players are considered public, and are your sole discretion.
Finally, any time you access the Services, we may collect aggregate information including but not limited to internet protocol addresses, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of this activity. We use this information to better tailor the Services to your interests, to provide you more efficient customer support, and to overall enhance the Services.
