What information may YBS collect from me?
YBS collects information in several ways. For example, some personal information is gathered when you register as a customer using our account interface. During registration, we may ask for your YBS Account Number and your email address. Once you register, you are no longer anonymous to YBS and are able to take full advantage of our services. In addition to registration, we may ask you for information at other times, such as when you report a problem with our site or services, or contact the company via the corporate e-mail address. If you contact YBS, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
If you believe that any inaccurate or inappropriate information has been obtained or disseminated through your use of this Site, you should contact a representative of YBS at [email protected].
What are cookies and how does YBS use them?
How does YBS use the information?
YBS’s primary goal in collecting information is to improve the site and provide the user with the best possible experience on the site. We will also use your personal information to notify you of other products or services available from YBS and its affiliates.
Except as provided herein, only YBS and its affiliates will have access to individuals’ account information. We also may do research on our users’ demographics and behavior based on the information provided to us upon registration, gathered from transaction activity, from our server log files or from surveys. This research may be compiled, analyzed or sold on an anonymous aggregated basis, which does not include information that would identify you. YBS also may share this data with business partners or other third parties.
Who is collecting information?
With whom does YBS share my information?
We will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, or under the circumstances described below. The following describes some of the ways that your information may be disclosed.
Data in the Aggregate: We may disclose “blinded” aggregated data and user statistics to prospective partners and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes. Blinded data is data which does not identify an individual person.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, delivering or mailing, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail, providing investor information and processing data. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are contractually prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
As we continue to develop our business, we may buy or sell businesses or assets. In such transactions, confidential customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. In the event of a transaction involving the sale of some or all of YBS businesses, customer and site visitor information may be one of the transferred assets.
How can I control my personal information?
YBS offers its customers choices for the use and sharing of personal information. You may contact us at[email protected]. If you wish to view, edit or delete your personal information from our database, and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.
How does YBS protect financial-related information?
Keeping your personal financial information private is vitally important to us. As a matter of policy and long time business practice, YBS does not sell information provided by its customers. Any user statistics that we may provide to prospective partners regarding financial matters are provided in the aggregate only and do not include any personally identifiable information about any individual user. We will transfer your credit card number, bank account number or other personal information to the appropriate credit card company or bank in order to process any online payments.
What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of my information?
Your YBS Account Information and YBS Profile are password-protected so you have access to this personal information. We use encryption technology to protect passwords and registration information while they are being transferred over the public Internet. Remember to sign out of your YBS account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account by using your computer when you are away from it. Because of the global nature of the Internet, when you give us information, that information may be sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Except as discussed above or otherwise designated, this site does not use security encryption measures. Therefore, information that you disclose by use of this site (as with any site that is non-secure), by posting a message or using e mail, potentially could be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties or use of such information by third parties for their own purposes, legal or illegal. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, YBS cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
Privacy of Children
None of the sites within the YBS network are directed to children under the age of 13. We operate our network of sites in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and do not intend for registration by, and will not knowingly collect or use personally identifiable information from, anyone under 13 years of age. Please do not register with YBS if you are under the age of 13.
What else should I know about my privacy?
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose information online, that information is accessible to other customers and users. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
When you or we end your customer relationship with us, we will treat the information we have about you as if you were still our customer.
