CLIENT END USER INFORMATION
What information does yRuler collect regarding End Users?
It is at yRuler Clients’ discretion what actions and information they collect from each End User. However, yRuler requires yRuler Clients to observe all applicable laws and regulations relating to the protection of data privacy and to only collect information that is necessary to improve Client Services and successfully serve their End Users. A primary use of yRuler is to understand how End Users are using the yRuler Client’s service. Many yRuler Clients send us, on a per-user basis, a subset of the actions taken by each End User within such yRuler Clients’ services and when such actions were taken.
Does yRuler require yRuler Clients to inform the End User about their use of the yRuler Service?
How does yRuler use the information it collects?
The information yRuler collects on End User activities with Client Services is the property of the yRuler Client, not of yRuler. We store the data in a unique security domain for each yRuler Client. Our algorithms process and analyze each yRuler Clients’ data separately to give that yRuler Client insight into how their service is being used, how it could be improved, and how to better serve its End Users.
yRuler also aggregates information across yRuler Clients to (i) improve the yRuler Service, (ii) benchmark usage patterns and behavior for a particular yRuler Client and for yRuler Clients generally, (iii) publish the interesting analysis of trends or behaviors and (iv) other similar uses.
Will yRuler provide information about me to anyone else?
Except as provided below in the sections entitled Information Disclosed Pursuant to Business Transfers and Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others, we never divulge End User data in a personally identifiable, unique or non-aggregated manner to anyone other than the yRuler Client on whose behalf we are collecting and analyzing its End User data.
How does yRuler make sure my information is secure?
yRuler takes the security and privacy of yRuler Client data and End User data very seriously. We use industry standard best practices to secure our systems and access to the data. Each yRuler Client’s data is kept separate from each other yRuler Client’s data. Each yRuler Client’s data flows through our system in a separate message queue, is stored in separate files on disk, and is a part of a unique security domain. Access to that security domain is protected by user authentication. However, no method of transmission over the Internet and no method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use industry standard best practices to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Does yRuler use “cookies”?
Like many websites, we sometimes employ “cookies,” small packets of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to a user’s browser from a website’s computer and stored on the user’s computer’s hard drive. The website placing the cookie on the user’s computer can then recognize the computer when the user navigates the website at a later time. For example, this allows us to remember user preferences and measure user behavior, information that YRuler Clients may then use to improve user interaction with their services.
Are there ways that I can opt out of allowing a yRuler Client to collect data on my use of its service?
Yes. If you are an End User of a yRuler Client and do not wish for us to collect information about your use of that service, there are several options:
- If you would like to opt out of having your data sent to yRuler, please contact the yRuler Client directly to ask for this. If you feel the yRuler Client is not responding satisfactorily to your request, please contact us email@example.com and we will respond within 24hours of the request (during the workweek M-F) and within 48hours when submitted over weekends or holidays.
YRULER CLIENT INFORMATION
What information does yRuler collect on its Clients and how is it used?
We collect only data that is necessary to provide optimum service for our Clients. The information we gather enables us to personalize, improve and continue to operate the yRuler Service. To explain how we use and safeguard your data, let’s look at the types of information we collect:
Usage Data: We make use of our own service to understand how you are using the yRuler Service so as to maximize your success with us and to improve the performance of the yRuler Service. The entire preceding section with respect to End User Information applies to your own use of the yRuler Service.

We recognize that this information is very important to you and we promise we will never divulge any of your Personal Information to anyone without your permission except as described below in the Sections entitled Information Disclosed Pursuant to Business Transfers and Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others. Please note that we may use your Personal Information to contact you regarding your account and the yRuler Service.
Financial Information: If you pay for the use of the yRuler Service by credit card, please be advised that we do not currently collect financial information, such as your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information); that information is collected and stored by our third party payment processing company (the “Payment Processor”), and use and storage of that information is governed by the Payment Processor’s applicable terms of service and privacy statement. Please note that we may from time to time request and receive some of your financial information from our Payment Processor for the purposes of completing payment transactions or enrolling you in programs in which you elect to participate, protecting against or identifying possible fraudulent transactions, and otherwise as needed to manage our business.
Email Communications: We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. We use this confirmation to improve our customer service.
Changing or Deleting your Information: If you are a yRuler Client, you may review, update, correct or delete the personally identifiable information in your yRuler account where it is inaccurate by contacting us. If you would like us to delete your yRuler account in our system, please contact us here with a request that we delete your personally identifiable information from our database. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request. If you request that your personally identifiable information be deleted from our records, there may be a brief delay in our processing that request, while verifying that the request is valid and originates from you as opposed to an unauthorized third party. If you request that your information is deleted, we reserve the right to terminate and/or limit your access to the Service. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.
Phishing: We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited email or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website.
Information Disclosed Pursuant to Business Transfers:
In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the transferred business assets. Moreover, if we, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that are transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of yRuler or our assets may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.
Information Disclosed for Our Protection & the Protection of Others: We also reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information as it reasonably believes is necessary to (i) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (ii) enforce our Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations hereof, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, (iv) respond to user support requests, or (v) protect our rights, property or safety, our users, and the public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and spam/malware prevention.
EU SafeHarbor Compliance: yRuler complies with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework.
