Yoto Player

Warnung: *Datenschutz ist in diesem Produkt nicht inbegriffen

Stressed about the little ones in your life getting too much screen time? The Yoto Player was designed for you. It’s a connected toy for parents who are tired of connected toys. With no cameras, microphones, or ads, this fun little speaker gives kids access to the whole wide web of audio without all the swiping, algorithmic spiraling, and spying that can happen if they borrow your tablet instead. Through the app, parents can control what makes it onto its playlist. With paper cards, kids can play their favorite songs and stories on their own. Over and over. And over.

Was könnte passieren, wenn etwas schiefgeht?

The Yoto Player is a bit more basic than your average connected toy. And that helps keep its privacy policy pretty simple too. It also helps that it's written in simple and clear language. It’s like they want you to understand it! Kudos, Yoto.

When you’re using the Yoto Player, the company can collect some pretty standard usage data from the device, like how you use the player and information about your wifi network. If you choose to use Yoto with the app -- which you probably will because that’s where you can create playlists and record your very own rendition of Baby Shark -- Yoto can collect a bit more data. They’ll store your recordings and playlists on their server. It says in their privacy policy though that they “cannot access or listen to the playlists.” That’s a comfort in case the songs you sing for your kids aren’t ready for primetime -- yet.

If you let your little one get in on the self-recording action, just know that you are technically consenting to sharing that information with Yoto, according to their Audio Recording Notice. If you decide to, Yoto gives simple instructions on how to delete those recordings and playlists too. They won’t be shared with any third parties, but just for safety’s sake maybe don’t name them after your credit card number or deepest-darkest-secrets.

We do have a grumble about Yoto -- we couldn't determine if they meet our Minimum Security Standards because we couldn’t find information about how they manage security vulnerabilities. All devices that connect to the internet should have a way of reporting bugs and issues. For a company that can collect and store recordings of your kids, we would love to be absolutely sure the company takes all possible measures to protect those recordings. As Yoto's own privacy policy says, "Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our website or App. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. Yoto is not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the website or App." This is a good reminder that the worst thing that could go wrong -- those cute recordings of your kid singing a song about much you hate your job -- could leak out into the world. You -- and your boss -- don't want that.

Tipps zu Ihrem Schutz

- Delete the lists & recordings from the app at times.
- Parents, keep a sharp eye on parent controls and permissions.
- Chose a strong password! You may use a password control tool like 1Password, KeePass etc
- Use your device privacy controls to limit access to your personal information via app (do not give access to your camera, microphone, images, location unless neccessary)
- Keep your app regularly updated
- Limit ad tracking via your device (eg on iPhone go to Privacy -> Advertising -> Limit ad tracking) and biggest ad networks (for Google, go to Google account and turn off ad personalization)
- Request your data be deleted once you stop using the app. Simply deleting an app from your device usually does not erase your personal data.
- When starting a sign-up, do not agree to tracking of your data if possible.

Privacy Policy

"The Yoto Player is deliberately designed to collect minimal data. When you use the Yoto Player or the Yoto App we collect usage data, as detailed below, to improve the Player and the App, and to troubleshoot (including to diagnose and inform you about problems with your Player)."

"Yoto does not sell your personal information for monetary consideration, however certain of our disclosures may constitute a “sale” under the CCPA (see further information in section 9 below)."

"Some of Yoto’s disclosures of personal information to third parties may constitute a “sale“ as that term is defined under the CCPA. However, we do not knowingly collect, disclose, or sell the personal information of children under the age of 16.
If you are age 16 or older, you have the right to direct us not to sell your personal information (known as the "right to opt-out").
To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by emailing our marketing and legal team here."

"We only send marketing communications if you consent to us doing that. You can change your mind at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in every marketing message we send or by emailing us at [email protected]."

"You use our app: We use third parties to help make our App work. Yoto has visibility on, the items you've purchased and the content you play that streams to the App.
You use our Player: We use third parties to help us understand how our player is used, and how to improve it. These third parties help us understand what content is being played and how your device is performing, so we can (for example) make sure your frequently played content is saved to your player, and you don't have to download it every time. These third parties also enable us to monitor, troubleshoot and inform you of any product issues with your device if you need us to."

"If you use the App to record your own audio content, or allow your child to record their own audio content, to play back on your Yoto Player, that local recording is stored on our servers as a playlist, but we cannot access or listen to the playlists. You can delete these playlists at any time, or you can ask us to delete them for you. It is your choice whether your child records an audio recording on the App and who it is shared with. Yoto has no control over the personal information your child may record. Therefore, we encourage you to review any audio recordings your child may record and who it is shared with. For further information please refer to our Audio Recording Notice."

"When you use our App, we collect how long you spend using the App and which version of the App you are running. This data is not linked to your user account.
To help us understand how you use our App, we may also collect information about the audio you have played, when it was played, and how many times it was played."

"If you consent, we also collect technical data using cookies on our website."

Audio Recording Notice
"If you allow your child under the age of 13 to record an audio recording, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) may apply. If you allow your child to record an audio recording, you consent to Yoto collecting personal information contained in the audio recording and to storing such information on Yoto’s systems. This will include the audio recording and whatever your child says on that audio recording. Yoto does not collect personal information from children and therefore any personal information we have related to your child is what you provide to us, such as when you name a playlist with your child’s name, request a Birthday Shout Out for your child, or allow your child to record audio using the MYO feature of the Yoto mobile application. Any sharing of the audio recordings is up to you. Yoto does not share the audio recordings with third parties. If you want to delete your MYO audio recordings, please click here for instructions. For any other type of audio recordings please email us at [email protected]."

Wie können Sie Ihre Daten kontrollieren?

"Generally, we retain personal information for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected or to comply with applicable legal obligations. "

"When we no longer are required to retain the information, we will destroy, erase, or de-identify the information. Legal requirements, however, may require us to retain some or all of the personal information we hold for a period of time that is longer than that for which we might otherwise hold."

"If you use the App to record your own audio content, or allow your child to record their own audio content, to play back on your Yoto Player, that local recording is stored on our servers as a playlist, but we cannot access or listen to the playlists. You can delete these playlists at any time, or you can ask us to delete them for you. It is your choice whether your child records an audio recording on the App and who it is shared with.
