What we collect

When you submit your name and email to YAYWORLD (USA LLC) to sign up, we use this information to create your account. When you use a social account to sign up, we use the name and email used by that account to create your YAYWORLD account. None of this information is shared with third parties. We will post any changes to this policy on this page and if the changes are significant, we will notify you to obtain your consent.

ID verification

To create a public profile, you are required to verify your identity by allowing YAYWORLD to match the name and email you provided when you signed up with the name and email in your social account. None of this information is shared with third parties.

Payment - Information Collected from Credit and Debit Cards

YAYWORLD does not directly handle or authorize credit and debit card payments. Credit and debit card verification and authorization is managed by Braintree (a PayPal company) and Stripe, two validated Level 1 PCI DSS compliant payment service providers that do not store raw magnetic stripe, card validation code, or PIN block data.

Cardholder data is managed using multiple encryption keys with split knowledge and dual control. A data thief would not be able to make use of information stolen from a database without also having the key. This data store cannot be connected to via the internet. All information collected by these gateways for the purpose of authorizing a payment is kept secure and is not shared.
Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others

We reserve the right to access, read, preserve and disclose any information as it reasonably believes is necessary to satisfy any applicable law or governmental request, enforce our User Agreement, detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or protect our rights, our users and the public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and spam/malware prevention.
