We at PocketTube are committed to protecting your privacy. This privacy policy applies to our site, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, Opera browser extensions, Android app and iOS app.

The information we gather or process is used solely for the core functionality of PocketTube and to improve the quality and security of our service. Your information isn’t and has never been sold to third parties.

What information is being stored, or accessed?

Your extension data(such as collection list, collection name and link, image list and extension setting) are transferred and stored securely, solely for your usage within our extension and not shared with any other third parties, except as specified in this policy. We use API and Google Drive API for transferred and stored your information.

Data accessible through WebExtensions API

WebExtension APIs used within extensioon have fine-grained permission levels that are enforced by the Web Browser, restricting information that our extension has access to within your browser. The PocketTube extension can only access specific information that you have explicitly granted permission for. We can not and do not track your browsing history.

Additional optional permissions may be requested when you enable specific features. When you enable a feature that requests an optional permission, your web browser will make it clear what permission(s) are being requested. The feature will be accessible once you choose to allow the requested permission(s).

Google Drive API

We use only Application Data folder in Google Drive Api. The 'Application Data folder' is a special folder that is only accessible by your application. Its content is hidden from the user, and from other apps. Despite being hidden from the user, the Application Data folder is stored on the user's Drive and therefore uses the user's Drive storage quota. The Application Data folder be used to store files with collection list, image list and configuration data.

Youtube API

We use Youtube API for reading your youtube subscription list. We don't change, update or delete any data.

Analytics data

This extension uses Mixpanel, a web analytics service provided by Mixpanel, Inc. (“Mixpanel”). Mixpanel uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.

To improve the content, features and overall experience of the extension, we gather and log data on how our users access and use PocketTube. For example, we may log actions like clicking on collection name, open tv mode, change image or set settings.

Some of this usage data is sent to Mixplanel. In these cases, we do not send any identifying information that could be correlated with your account. We also make use of their IP anonymization feature to prevent your IP from being associated with your usage data.

Do we disclose any information to third parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to 3rd parties your personally identifiable information. Any of the information we collect from you may be used to personalize your experience.
