YouLike is a platform, where you can express yourself, your interests, character and hobbies, in a simple and organized way. We are sure that the more you say about yourself, the more you will benefit from YouLike. In addition to your basic information, we would like you to rate items on activities, your way of life, entertainment and activity preferences, etc. You have to agree that your actions such as to like, love, dislike and hate, are considered as information you are sharing with other users. We would kindly like to remind you that you are sharing private and sensitive data when rating these items, and you are responsible for what you share.

By doing that, we will never expose your identity and your personal information. Third party users might use your personal information in order to provide targeted advertising and promotions for you, both on the YouLike website and other websites you visit. We may also share non-personal information with them, such as overall popular items, relationships between questions and answers, and your interest levels about a subject/item.
Exceptional cases / Jurisdictional issues: You should also understand that in some cases we may share your information with third parties. This may or may not be required by law, or simply be requested by any legal process. We may have to defend our or another third party’s rights or property. This disclosure may also protect other people that may be in danger. We may also disclose such information if it involves any sort of abuse to a third party. Information may be disclosed to the authorities that we, with our sole discretion, deem appropriate.
Changing personal information: You will always be able to change your personal information such as your hometown, username, email address, photos, videos and password at any time on the YouLike Site.

If you would like to delete your account, you agree that you will lose all of your personal information, photos/videos, posts, your rated items and anything that is associated with your Profile. Please be advised that even if you delete your account, we may keep your information for a limited time. Please delete your account only if you are sure that you do not want to come back. Even after deletion, there may be cases that you may view and access some of your information on the web, which may be limited to what you have shared previously. We will not take responsibility in such cases, since these are circumstances beyond our control, and the information is between you and the third parties you have allowed to use your information. You can always register again with YouLike with the same email address, but you will have lost all of your previous information, and we also cannot guarantee to you that you can use your previous username.
Don’t worry: Our IT experts work hard in order to provide you with a safe environment where you can rate your ‘likes’ and ‘dislikes’ without any doubts about privacy. We will do our utmost to protect your personal data with firewalls and secured servers.
Even though we are maximizing our efforts in this area, you must accept that the internet or mobile web is not a completely safe platform and we cannot guarantee that things like hacking, data loss, and unauthorized access will not happen. In order to prevent that, we advise you to change your password once in a while, not to share it with anyone and log out of your account after using it.
