How We Share Your Information
YOKE is part of the digital community, and as part of our business there are times that we share information with third parties. You can find out more about that here:
Sharing on YOKE: Yoke is designed to let you join video chats with not only Stars (e.g. athletes) but also others users on the site. Your public profile is available to both Stars and other users. Other users may also be able to view your name, username, gamer tag, and stars that you follow (i.e., athletes that you have played with in the past). Users can see when you were online last and a list of the Stars you follow. You will receive a notice when Stars go online and are “Online Now”.
YOKE exists to help you connect with the people who love gaming as much as you do. When you connect with another user, they can see some of the profile information you’ve created on YOKE.
We share information with our vendors: We may share information with trusted third parties, including companies who serve as our vendors and help us deliver our services and social media partners if you elect to use social media integration features. We may also share some information with companies that help operate our app or run a promotion. We will share information if we think we have to in order to comply with the law or to protect ourselves: For example, we will share information to respond to a court order or subpoena or if a U.S. or non-U.S. law enforcement agency, government agency, or investigatory body requests it. We may also share information we collect when we investigate potential fraud, abuse, or other similar violations of YOKE rules and codes of conduct.
We may share information with any successor to all or part of our business. If all or part of our business is sold, we’re part of a merger or acquisition, or there is a financing or bankruptcy, we may share information as part of that transaction.
We may also share information for other reasons we may describe to you or as permitted under law.
User Generated Content
If you post content on our Site or through our other online Services, everything you post may become publicly available. We cannot prevent any information or content you post online from being copied by others and used in a manner that may violate this Policy, the law, or your personal privacy.
Please note that except as noted above, we will not sell or share your personal information with any third party for their direct marketing purposes without your consent.
Cookies and Other Tracking Mechanisms
Session Cookies: Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged into our Services. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests, and to verify your identity.
Persistent Cookies: Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity on our Site.
Clear GIFs, pixel tags and other technologies: Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, and these technologies function in a way that is similar to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs, or pixel tags), in connection with our Site or other online Services to, among other things, track the activities of visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about usage. We and our third-party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML emails to our users to help us track email response rates, identify when our emails are viewed, and track whether our emails are forwarded.

You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your account (including protecting your Google login and password if you access the App through your Google account), phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in andpassword private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
