Privacy Policy

 

Octave UCME is the developer of the Youseeme application

Your trust is of the utmost importance to Octave UCME. This is why we made sure to place security and confidentiality at the heart of the Youseeme application and its development process, and to protect your privacy by using strong encryption methods. The Privacy Policy detailed herein below covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your information. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

As soon as you register using the Youseeme application, your profile data is used to create an encrypted digital identity, which is then recorded in the Blockchain journal. You will receive a QR code encoding your identity, and no third party would be able to decipher its content without you sharing the key or the QR-CODE. Moreover, your identity cannot be copied or saved by the said third party.

 

Can I erase my digital identity from your database?

Your personal information is not saved in our databases, but rather in the Blockchain journal, and as such you are the only entity to have access to it. The Blockchain journal does not belong to any person. In particular, it is not saved by any entity or person, as the information it encloses is distributed on thousands of servers worldwide. While this makes it impossible to erase previously shared information, it also means no one has access to it other than you. Because of this, losing the QR-CODE or the login/password protecting your identity would result in losing access to it, and having to create a new digital identity!

 

What are my ownership rights?

Through your digital identity, all content written or produced by you will be attached to your signature and to your identity, and no one would be able to use said content without your authorization, or claim having created or produced it before you, as the verification process is structured within the Blockchain journal, and can determine authorship and anteriority, as well as the identity of the content producer.

 

How does the Bartcoin currency work?

The Bartcoin crypto-currency is a currency just like the dollar or the euro, kept in an electronic (digital) “wallet”. All these currencies have a defined value at any given moment. The Bartcoin currency facilitates the exchange of goods and services of equal value through a barter process that is accepted by both parties involved therein.

The Bartcoin is valued against the user’s local currency – one Bartcoin is equal to one Euro – for the purpose of homogenizing transactions performed by members from different countries. There are no transaction or banking fees for conversions involving this currency. Moreover, VAT taxes are not applicable since there is no billing or accounting involved. Dealing in Bartcoin is perfectly legal as, to date, there is no legal contraindications forbidding its use. Whenever there is a change in the legal status, Bartcoin will obey the legal jurisdiction, and the law will adapt to the situation.

 

Do I need legal counsel?

Terms of this contract can be wholly based on an agreement independent of any jurisdiction, whereas attorneys at law and notaries are necessary for any judicial, legal, and fiscal aspect, especially in case of litigation or disagreement amongst involved parties. In principle, the smart contract significantly reduces the risk of legal conflict, and legal implications are reduced. For ownership proceedings, the involvement of a notary remains indispensable.

 

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person. You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with Octave UCME or an affiliated company or partner. Octave UCME and its affiliates may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content, and advertising. You are not required to provide the personal information that we have requested, but, if you chose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to any queries you may have.

What personal information we collect

When you create an ID using the Youseeme application (“YouseemeID”), participate in an online quiz, game, contact us or participate in an online survey, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, and credit card information.

When you share your content with family and friends using the Youseeme application, transfer Bartcoins or funds, or invite others to use the Youseeme application, Octave Youseeme may collect the information you provide about those people such as name, mailing address, email address, and phone number. Octave UCME will use such information to fulfill your requests, provide the relevant product or service, or for anti-fraud purposes.

How we use your personal information

The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on the latest product announcements, software updates, and upcoming events organized by Octave UCME and its partners. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by updating your preferences via the application or the website.

We also use personal information to help us create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our products, services, content and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes.

We may use your personal information, including date of birth, to verify identity, assist with identification of users, and to determine appropriate services. For example, we may use date of birth to determine the age of Octave UCME ID account holders.

From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Octave UCME and its Youseeme application, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.

We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Octave UCME products, services, and customer communications.

If you enter into a sweepstake, contest, or similar promotion we may use the information you provide to administer those programs.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:

      • We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and the time zone where an Octave UCME product is used so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our products, services, and advertising.
      • We may collect information regarding customer activities on our website, Youseeme application, and our future products and services. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered nonpersonal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.
      • We may collect and store details of how you use our services, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our services. Except in limited instances to ensure quality of our services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.
      • With your explicit consent, we may collect data about how you use your device and applications in order to help app developers improve their apps.

If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.

Cookies and Other Technologies

Octave Youseeme’s websites, online services, interactive applications, email messages, and advertisements may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our websites people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as nonpersonal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

You may receive notifications for ads that are delivered by Youseeme. If you do not wish to receive ads targeted to your interests from Youseeme’s advertising platform, you can email us at contact@youseeme.pro, which will opt your Youseeme ID out of receiving such ads regardless of what device you are using. You can always refer to notifications under “Youseeme news” based on context.

Octave UCME and partners also use cookies and other technologies to remember personal information when you use our website, online services, and applications. Our goal in these cases is to make your experience more convenient and personal. For example, knowing your first name lets us welcome you the next time you visit the application. Knowing your country and language and if you are an educator, your school helps us provide a customized and more useful experience. Knowing someone using your computer or device has shopped for a certain product or used a particular service helps us make our advertising and email communications more relevant to your interests. And knowing your contact information, hardware identifiers, and information about your computer or device helps us provide you with better customer service.

As is true of most internet services, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, to improve our product and services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Octave UCME may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.

In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Octave UCME website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.

Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.

Disclosure to Third Parties

At times Octave UCME may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with Octave UCME to provide products and services, or that help Octave UCME market to customers.

Service Providers

Octave UCME shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever Octave UCME operates.

Others

It may be necessary by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence for Octave UCME to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.

We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.

Protection of Personal Information

Octave UCME takes the security of your personal information very seriously. When your personal information is stored by Octave UCME, Blockchain technology is used to protect your data.

When you use some Octave UCME products, services, or applications or post on an Octave UCME forum, chat room, or social networking service, the personal information and content you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to share or submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.

Integrity and Retention of Personal Information

Octave UCME makes it easy for you to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

Access to Personal Information

You can ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date via the Youseeme application or by logging in to your account at https://youseeme.pro. For other personal information we hold, we will provide you with access for any purpose including requesting that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if Octave UCME is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may decline to process requests that are frivolous/vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law.

Location-Based Services

To provide location-based services on Octave UCME products, Octave UCME and our partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Octave UCME computer or device. Where available, location-based services may use GPS, Bluetooth, and your IP Address, along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, and other technologies to determine your devices’ approximate location. Unless you provide consent, this location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Octave UCME and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, your device may share its geographic location with application providers when you opt in to their location services.

ThirdParty Sites and Services

Octave UCME websites, products, applications, and services may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties.

Information collected by third parties, which may include such things as location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.

If you purchase a subscription in a third party app or within the Youseeme application, we create a Subscriber ID that is unique to you and the developer or publisher which we use to provide reports to the developer or publisher that include information about the subscription you purchased, and your country of residence. If you cancel all of your subscriptions with a particular developer or publisher, the Subscriber ID will reset after 180 days if you do not re-subscribe. This information is provided to developers so that they can understand the performance of their subscriptions.

International Users

All the information you provide may be transferred or accessed by entities around the world as described in this Privacy Policy. Octave UCME uses approved Model Contractual Clauses for the international transfer of personal information collected in the European Economic Area and Switzerland. Octave UCME, as a global company, has a number of legal entities in different jurisdictions which are responsible for the personal information which they collect and which is processed on their behalf by Octave UCME Inc.

Octave UCME abides by the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Cross Border Privacy Rules System. The APEC CBPR system provides a framework for organizations to ensure protection of personal information transferred among participating APEC economies.

Our Companywide Commitment to Your Privacy

To make sure your personal information is secure, we communicate our privacy and security guidelines to Octave UCME employees and strictly enforce privacy safeguards within the company.

Privacy Questions

If you have any questions or concerns about Octave UCME’s Privacy Policy or data processing or if you would like to make a complaint about a possible breach of local privacy laws, please contact us via the email address contact@youseeme.pro.

All such communications are examined and replies issued where appropriate as soon as possible. If you are unsatisfied with the reply received, you may refer your complaint to the relevant regulator in your jurisdiction.
