YouTube Data API Data

RecoverMy.Video Website is a YouTube API client, which means that it's using YouTube API Services.

According to the YouTube API Services - Developer Policies we inform you about the information RecoverMy.Video Website accesses, collects and stores in its database.

Which data gets accessed?

By using YouTube API Services and your YouTube API key RecoverMy.Video Website is able to access and store following authenticated and non-authenticated YouTube data:

  • Channels
    • Channel ID
    • Channel title
    • URL path to channel thumbnail image
  • Playlists
    • Playlist ID
    • Playlist title
    • Channel ID the playlist contains to
    • Channel title the playlist contains to
    • The number of videos a playlist contains
    • The date a playlist was published
    • The privacy status of a playlist
    • URL path to playlist thumbnail image
  • Playlist Items (videos)
    • Video ID
    • Video title
    • Channel ID the video's playlist contains to

    • The channel ID of the video owner
    • The channel title of the video owner
    • The video's etag (for caching purposes)

The YouTube data access by RecoverMy.Video Website is "read only".

How long does YouTube data get stored?

In general the YouTube data gets stored until you...

  • ...revoke your channel access to YouTube
  • ...delete your tracked channel
  • ...delete your RecoverMy.Video user account

The retention time for recovered video titles is 30 days. After 30 days recovered video titles get deleted from RecoverMy.Video's database, automatically. This 30 days retention rule also applies for any other videos which don't get delivered by YouTube's Data API anymore.

In case a playlist gets removed from a channel, the corresponding playlist and all of its video data gets automatically deleted from RecoverMy.Videos's database, too.

How to revoke access to YouTube

There are multiple ways to revoke YouTube access for RecoverMy.Video Website in order to delete your YouTube data in RecoverMy.Video Website's database.

  1. Delete RecoverMy.Video account manually

    On your RecoverMy.Video Website's profile page you'll find a link called "Delete account". By clicking this link all your data stored in RecoverMy.Video Website's database gets deleted immediately. At the same time you revoke access to your YouTube channel(s).

  2. Automatic account deletion due to inactivity

    If you don't log in for more than 6 months, you'll be notified via E-Mail that your account will be deleted within 10 days. To prevent account deletion and to reactivate your account, you just have to log in. An account deletion also revokes access permissions to your YouTube channel(s).

  3. Revoke YouTube access permissions and delete YouTube data

    RecoverMy.Video Website offers a channel manager in order to grant or revoke access permissions to your YouTube channel(s). If you want to delete all YouTube data which got fetched and saved by RecoverMy.Video Website, just revoke access permissions of the corresponding channel. The YouTube channel data will get deleted within a max. of 5 days.

    Another way to delete your YouTube data is to revoke YouTube access by using the Google security settings page.

Dailymotion API Data

RecoverMy.Video uses the public API of Dailymotion in respect of the Dailymotion Terms of API use.

Which data gets accessed?

By using Dailymotion API RecoverMy.Video APP is able to access and store following public Dailymotion data:

  • Channels
