Google API Services Disclosure
Heck Yeah uses Google’s Application Programming Interface (API) Services to enable the user authorization feature for accessing the Heck Yeah platform, and two-way synchronization between Heck Yeah and Google Calendars (means all events created in Google Calendar are automatically synched with Heck Yeah calendars and vice-versa).
Types of Data Collected with Google API Services
In connection with the Google API services that we use for our platform, we integrate Google user authentication credentials into our platform to enable two-way synchronization between Heck Yeah and Google Calendars. This means all events created in Google Calendar are automatically synched with Heck Yeah calendars and vice-versa. The information collected and used with these API services may include personal and confidential data (e.g. login credentials).
“Confidential Data” means data that may contain sensitive or restricted information that should only be accessible to authorized personnel, including, for example, user login credentials or credit card information, or other sensitive information that should not be made public.
“Personal Data” means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. “Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data. Anonymous Data does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons. We collect, use, and store Personal Data and Anonymous Data, as described within the practices below. To the extent that Anonymous Data is linked to your Personal Data, we will treat it as Personal Data.
Use of Google API Services Data
Your Google information is used by our system developers to provide or improve user-facing features that are prominent to your user experience. Heck Yeah policies and procedures define requirements that prohibit the unauthorized use of data within the platform.
In order to perform improvement to the platform, developers may need to share your information with other development team members; however, Heck Yeah policies require that this type of sharing only be performed when (a) necessary to provide or improve user-facing features that are prominent from the requesting app’s user interface, (b) to comply with applicable laws, or (c) a part of a merger, acquisition or sale of assets of Heck Yeah. All other transfers or sales of user data are completely prohibited.
Developers are never allowed to use or transfer restricted scope data to serve users advertisements. This includes personalized, re-targeted, and interest-based advertising. Additionally, developers do not allow humans to read restricted scope user data. There are two limited exceptions to this rule:
- To comply with applicable laws, and
- The developer aggregates and anonymizes the data and only uses it for internal operations (for example, reporting aggregate statistics in an internal dashboard).
