Li-Po Battery protection circuitry placement

I am using Li-po battery as shown in the attachment. It already has a protection circuit, which is wrapped in yellow tape. So to reduce the size of the battery can I put the protection circuitry on my PCB with the rest of circuit and fold the battery terminals?
Would this folding cause any kind of damage to the battery or not?
Also, what is the recommended placement of the protection circuitry, either on your own PCB or on the separate PCB attached to the battery (as they already have)?
