The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include cookies, web server logs, web beacons, and other technologies. A “cookie” is a small text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected devices to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag, or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server.

These technologies help us (1) remember your information so you will not have to re-enter it;
When signing up for an account on YOKE, you have the option to give YOKE access to your address book to find friends (“Contacts”) on YOKE. We use your Contacts to identify other Users that you may know or that your Contacts may know. We use this information to provide you and other Users with suggestions on whom to invite. We may also present your Contacts as options for various interactions if you do not have a significant number of invitations on the app.
You can invite Contacts to join YOKE by sending them a text message with a link to install the app. The invitation may include your name and the names of your teammates on YOKE. In order to help increase the benefits of your YOKE account, we may assist you by sending messages to your friends on your behalf. You also have the opportunity to send the message yourself.
When another user uploads their contact list, we may combine information about you from that user’s contact list with other information we have collected about you.
We will request your consent to access your Contacts data if required by applicable law. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org, but such withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of the processing prior to the withdrawal.
If you wish to delete your contacts data that you previously allowed us to access, please contact us at email@example.com. Please note that deletion requests are subject to certain exceptions and limitations.
We implement reasonable and appropriate security measures to help protect the safety of your contacts data.

For example, if you create or log into your account through a social media service, we will have access to certain information from that service, such as your name, account information and friends lists, in accordance with the authorization procedures determined by such social media service. We refer to this information as “Third-Party Information.”
