Your profile information is publicly available which includes your username, ….

AYO will only collect information which you have given us permission to store. When you register your account, for example, you share with us your email and other personal information.

  • Prevent potentially illegal activities and ensure compliance with our Terms of Use.
  • Provide you with the Services and with great customer support.
  • Customize, analyze, and improve the Services.

When you access AYO via a mobile device, you may also share your phone contacts with us.

As with almost all mobile applications or websites today, certain information is automatically recorded when you access them. Such information is shared between your browser and our servers called “log data.” Log data includes your IP address, cookie data, browser type, operating system, device information, the date and time you accessed our site, and how you used AYO.

How do We Use the Information We Collect?

Livestreaming is not encrypted.

Legal Compliance and Changes in Business Structure

If we make a good-faith determination that we reasonably believe disclosure is necessary to comply with law or to protect the personal safety of an individual or class of people or safety of property or information, we may disclose your information to the appropriate authorities, legal entities or governments.

If AYO undergoes a merger, dissolution, reorganization, bankruptcy or acquisition which requires disclosure, we may disclose information if required.

How do you control your information?
