Who we are
Our website address is: https://yallhelp.com
What personal data we collect…
But first and foremost, a few very important points…
1. Any information you post, be it a listing or review, will be visible to anyone visiting our site.
2. We do not collect any information from you unless it’s needed for the operation of the website. We work to enable better local commerce with a simple and effective platform. So we are not interested in collecting any of your information, mainly because we are not in the business of it. We don’t like the practice either. So, we do not collect, share, sell, trade or barter your information with anyone. And we never will. We believe in privacy.
3. We use Stripe’s world-leader prowess as our e-commerce merchant gateway. And as such we never see your credit/debit card data. So since we never see it of course we never collect it. We do have a pop-up modal display for credit/debit card data input on our site, it’s very efficient with no redirects, and Stripe’s security & encryption ensures your safety. We like it best this way.
And now for more details & specifics…
When visitors leave reviews on the site we collect the data shown in the listing reviews, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection & elimination.
If you upload a profile photo, after approval of your review or listing, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your review/listing.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on any website. To avoid this turn off the GPS location service for photos on your device.
Contact Forms & Cookies
If you leave a review on our site you may have information stored in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another review. These cookies will last for a predetermined amount of time, or until you clear cookies on your device.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last a few days, and screen options cookies last longer. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist. When you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish a listing, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the listing you just published/edited. It expires after a few days.
Embedded content from other websites
Listings on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
If you leave a review, the review and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
We may utilize traffic analytics of the website from third-party providers. This helps us better understand the user experience and improve our services as a trusted local business directory and review website. it is our understanding that the only information they can see about you is your IP address, type device, operating system & general location (city, state). We believe this to be true. And if we ever discover otherwise we will discontinue their services immediately.
Visitor reviews & comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How we protect your data
We perform our due diligence in protecting your data. However we make no warranties (stated or implied). Basically we simply try to present all the information we can and you make the final choice as to the use our platform or not. We follow industry standards and best practices to ensure a valued & trusting relationship but ultimately the decision is yours. We just thought we’d be up front about it all. But again, no warranties and no guarantees. Data breaches have occurred on many websites, but at least if it happens here they’ll be extremely disappointed – because we don’t collect unnecessary data & Stripe ensues all the financial data.
