b. Device information Devices are lots of things like:
- your computer

We automatically collect some technical information from these devices and web browsers even when you’re not signed in to an account. This might include:
- IP (internet protocol) address
- device ID
- app ID
- vendor ID
c. Information on your activities outside the when you talk about us Like if you’ve mentioned us in a Twitter post, we’ll collect your Twitter handle. What if I have an account? When you register for an account or update your details or settings we ask for some personal information, like your email address and age. We also collect information about how you use our services, like the articles you read and the programmes you watch.
5. How long will the YUPIIE.COM keep my personal information?
When you give us any personal information we’ll let you know how long we’ll hold it for. And always stick to these principles:
- we only hold your information for as long as we do the activities we told you about or have a valid reason to keep it
- we think about what type of information it is, the amount collected, how sensitive it might be and any legal requirements
- we design our services so that we don’t hold your information any longer than we have to
- we may close your account if you haven’t used it in the last year. We’ll send you an email to tell you that we plan to do this before we delete anything, so please check to see if we’ve sent you any emails about this
6. How can YUPIIE.COM use my personal information?
We have to have a valid reason to use your personal information. It’s called the “lawful basis for processing”. Sometimes we might ask your permission to do things, like when you subscribe to an email. Other times, when you’d reasonably expect us to use your personal information, we don’t ask your permission, but only when:
- the law says it’s fine to use it, and
- it fits with the rights you have
We use your information for these types of things:
7. When will YUPIIE.COM use my information to contact me?
We might use your information to contact you about different things, like:
- to check with you about any service or activity you’ve signed up for. For example, we might tell you if your account hasn’t been used for a long time. Or it might be about creating a child account
- to answer you when you’ve contacted us, or to respond to a comment or complaint
- to invite you to take part in surveys about our services, which are always voluntary
- for marketing purposes
- to send you notification on your device if you’ve selected them in your settings
We’ll only contact you when we need to or when you’ve given us permission. We’ll never contact you to ask for your account password.
8. Will I be contacted for marketing purposes?
9. When does YUPIIE.COM share my personal information with others?
10. What’s different for kids and teens?
a. Why do we collect information about you in the first place? We keep information about you so that we can:
- get the right services for you
- plan and improve our services
- keep in touch with you
b. We’ll always tell you why we’re collecting your personal information We’ll explain why and how we use it and for how long. It’s called a “privacy notice”. And if we need your parent or guardian’s permission we’ll give you clear details about what’s needed at the time.
e. We might ask you to tell us your age To make sure you use parts of YUPIIE.COM that are suitable for you. For example:
- so that adults don’t post comments on kid’s message boards
- when you want to get an account
f. Sometimes we’ll ask to get your parent or guardian’s consent You’ll see a notification. We might also ask for some details from them so that we can contact them. Other times we may contact your parent or guardian:
- so you can get notifications from us
- so we can show you more things we think you’ll like, based on what you do
- so you can post comments
- so you can upload your contributions to us
g. Sometimes we’ll tell your parents about your activities, For example, if you’re under 13 and your parent has asked to see every creation you upload, we’ll share it with them before it goes public.
n. You’ve got privacy rights, the same as adults, so get to know what they are You can:
- ask us what personal information we hold about you
- ask us to correct or delete your personal information
- tell us to stop using your personal information
If you’re 13 or older, you can do this yourself, but not always. Sometimes we’ll be asking for your parent or guardian to do that. If you’re under 13 your parent or guardian probably has to do it for you.
11. Can I delete my information?
a. If you’re talking about account You can delete your account. Your account information is immediately deleted. Keep in mind:
- we keep a record of how you’ve used our services, but this information can’t be linked back to you
- we also keep anything you’ve uploaded or commented on
b. What about other information I’ve shared with you? We might have collected other personal information that you might ask to be deleted that has nothing to do with the account.
12. What are my rights?
Remember, you’re in control of your personal information. You have the right to:
- request a copy of your information
- not let robots make big decisions about you
- to ask us to correct information that’s wrong, to delete it or to request that we only use it for certain purposes
- to change your mind, and ask us to stop using your information. For example, unsubscribing from any marketing emails or turning off personalisation
Bear in mind, sometimes we might not be able to help. Like if the law tells us we can’t or it forms part of our journalistic output.
- to remember information about you, so you don’t have to give it to us again. And again. And again
- to keep you signed in, even on different devices
- to help us understand how people are using our services, so we can make them better
- to deliver advertising to websites outside of the UE
- to help us personalise by remembering your preferences and settings. And your progress, so you can pause and pick up where you left off watching a programme, even on a different device
- to find out if our emails have been read and if you find them useful
A few things on our websites wouldn’t work without some cookies. Tech people call these “strictly necessary cookies”. They’re always on when you visit us. But we want to use others like functional, performance and advertising cookies to make your experience more enjoyable. We’ll only use them if you’ve agreed. You can always change your mind. Bear in mind there are some other cookies out there from other companies. These “third-party cookies” might track how you use different websites, including ours. For example, you might get a social media company’s cookie when you see the option to share something. You can turn them off, but not through us.
