    Yahoo! Mobile

    Yahoo! Mobile provides users with mobile value added services, such as ringtones, logos, SMS alerts etc., both solely through Yahoo! Pte Ltd ("we" and "us", as the case may be) or jointly with our third party providers. Yahoo! Mobile is also a resource guide that allows users to access and customise Internet content through mobile phones and other alternative devices. Yahoo! Mobile gives you access to PDA downloads and also allows you to receive certain alerts on your mobile phone.

    Information Collection and Use Practices

    Mobile Value Added Services (e.g., ringtones, logos, SMS alerts)

    When you buy Value Added Services from us or from our third party providers, we and/or the relevant third party provider receive(s) and store(s) your personally identifying information submitted by you and obtained from your mobile operator.

    Due to the increasingly global nature of mobile and internet services, you acknowledge that your personally identifying information may be transmitted outside of Singapore, in particular, to servers in the United States and you hereby consent to such transfers. Please see the section on Data Storage.

    When you buy Mobile Value Added Services, you will receive a message which will give you the option of receiving further messages about products from us and/or our third party providers. If you agree to receive messages, you will have the option of changing your choice with every new message you receive.

    Mobile Alerts service

    To use the Mobile Alerts service, you must add each wireless device to your Yahoo! account and enter the corresponding email address or phone number for each wireless device.

    Mobile Phone service

    If a mobile phone service that provides Internet access uses a cell phone number as a unique identifier, we receive this information from the service provider.

    It is our practice to keep this information separate from all other user information in a secure database. We use a different unique number that is transmitted within our network.


    When you use Yahoo! Mobile or access Yahoo! from any wireless device, you are subject to the Yahoo! Terms of Service.

    Please see the Yahoo! Mobile Help if you have questions about this service.

    This page describes our current practice with respect to this particular service. This information may change as we revise this service by adding or removing features or using different service providers. To find out how we treat your personal information, please visit our Privacy Policy.
