We Collect Limited Information with Our Applications.
When you download and use our mobile applications for children, we don't require you to provide any personally identifiable information and we don't collect any information about you or your device, except we collect:
(i) non-personal information about how the mobile application is used, such as the screens viewed and actions taken within the mobile applications, which is used solely to enhance and improve our applications;
(ii) upon receiving your personalized book ID code (the "Code"), we match the Code to the location of your yearbook photograph in the yearbook, which identifies you also by first and last name. Except for purposes of serving as an online yearbook platform, we do not collect, store or share your first and last name or photograph for any other purpose; and
(iii) your email addresses or those of parents of children under 13 years of age who wish to receive the Code directly from YB instead of through your or their child's chosen yearbook distributor. Those email addresses are used solely to send the Code. We don't share or disclose any of those email addresses.

A Note about Push Notifications
For our iOS applications, we may send push notifications if the user opts in to receive them. Apple's push notification process automatically provides us with a token which is identified to a specific device, enabling notifications to be sent to that device through Apple's push notification service. The token is used only to send push notifications. The token is not disclosed and is not used for any other purpose or combined with any other information. We send push notifications to communicate information about how to interact with our applications. Notifications can be turned off through the "Notifications" tab within iOS "Settings."
Links to Third Party Sites
We may provide links and/or connections to third-party web sites or services from our website (we don't allow links within our mobile applications). We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these third-party sites.
