The proceeding document, like all documents and policies of this nature, is complicated. To that affect, we, the makers of younity, would like to provide a summary that clarifies our position on data collection and disclosure - we don't want to collect personally identifiable data about you. Under the circumstances that we do (typically because we must in order to enable the service), we have no intention of giving it to anyone unless we really have to (for legal reasons or to enable the service). You are not our "product". By that, we mean that we have no intention of making money off of information about you. We want you to ultimately pay for the younity service because it is awesome and you can't live without it. We continue to make painstakingly complicated technological choices to absolutely minimize that which we collect and any subset of that which we might store. The less we have, the better. That said, data does get passed to us by your use of our service. We hope you'll trust us in employing the Golden Rule - treat others in the manner you would like them to treat you. Thank you for taking the time to read this and we'll keep working to earn your trust (and your business).
