Privacy Policy for Yaki Chat Mobile App

Last Updated: July 8, 2023

Yaki Chat ("we", "us", or "our") is committed to protecting the privacy of our users ("you" or "user"). This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose, and protect your information when you use the Yaki Chat Mobile App ("the App"). By using the App, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. If you have any questions or concerns about our policy or practices, please contact us at [email protected]

Information Collection
Yaki Chat is designed to not store any personal identifying information. We do, however, store IP addresses for potential abuse identification and prevention. The app's main functionality involves communicating with a third-party service called OpenAI. If you choose not to use your own API key, you are communicating with Yaki Chat's backend infrastructure. In such cases, we track token usage but do not track or store the content of your messages.
As you obtain your API key by accepting OpenAI's privacy policy, your use of their API key and their service is subject to their policy. Agreeing to our privacy policy also means agreeing to OpenAI's privacy policy.

In-App Purchases
Our app handles in-app purchases through a third-party service named RevenueCat. However, it only receives a random user ID with no other information about you. We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of RevenueCat and we advise you to review their privacy policy.

User Analytics
In addition to crash reporting, we also collect analytics data using a self-hosted Countly instance. The tracked data includes IP addresses, country of origin, session details, and app view details. This data helps us understand how our app is used and how we can improve it. We do not store any personal information such as names, emails, or telephone numbers. Our goal is to maintain a minimum data footprint to ensure your privacy.

Crash Reporting
We use a self-hosted Sentry instance for crash reporting to help improve the reliability and performance of our App. The data we collect for crash reporting is strictly limited to information related to the crash event and does not include any personally identifiable information. This data is solely used for internal analysis and is never shared with any third parties.

Third-Party Services
The App uses the OpenAI API to provide its main functionality. To use the OpenAI API, you must provide your own API key, which you obtain by agreeing to OpenAI's privacy policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of OpenAI, and we encourage you to review OpenAI's privacy policy before providing your API key or using their service. The App does not store your OpenAI API key.

Information Use
As we do not collect any personal information about you, we do not use, share, or disclose any personal information for any purpose. The IP addresses we store will only be used for abuse prevention and identification.

We take the security of your information seriously. Since we do not collect or store any personal information, there is no risk of unauthorized access or disclosure of your personal data when using the App.

Custom API Key Usage
If you choose to use your own API key, we do not track or store any information regarding your sent messages or token usage. Your interaction with the API is under your full control and subject to the privacy policy of the respective API provider.

Content of Messages
In keeping with our commitment to privacy, we want to clarify that the content of your messages is NEVER saved on our servers or any third-party servers. All messages are exclusively stored locally on your device.

Changes to this Privacy Policy
We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page. You are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page.
