This page describes our privacy practices with respect to Yahoo Smart TV (formerly Connected TV).
Yahoo User Account
You do not need to be a registered Yahoo user to use Yahoo Smart TV, although some Yahoo TV apps may require sign into Yahoo.
Once signed-in to Yahoo, you are not automatically signed-out once the TV app is closed. You can sign-in and sign-out of the Yahoo account associated with individual profiles in the Settings menu.
Non-Yahoo Content and Service Providers
Yahoo Smart TV offers TV Apps from other content and service providers, but does not share your personal Yahoo user data with those providers.
You do not need to sign-in to Yahoo to use non-Yahoo TV apps.
For more information on how these providers acquire and use your data, please see their individual privacy policies.
Yahoo Smart TV Platform
The Yahoo Smart TV Platform automatically checks for updates.
The Yahoo Smart TV Platform supports the Yahoo login, so some TV apps built by Yahoo can access password protected data associated with your Yahoo ID, such as your Flickr photos and Yahoo Finance portfolio.
When your Smart TV contacts Yahoo servers, it sends information that can help enhance your experience, which may include: a unique identifier number.
