YEI specifically collects information, which includes:
Personal Information. “Personal Information” means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, first and last name, shipping address, email address and YEI password age and credit card or other payment information that you choose to provide to YEI. We may ask you to provide Personal Information that will enable us to enhance your use of the Service, or for purposes such as facilitating correspondence with you or your company, registering your entitlement to access certain special features, or to complete transactions. We also collect information on the pages you access and other information you may volunteer, such as survey information. It is always your choice whether or not to provide that Personal Information to us and this is not a requirement for the use of the Service.
Technical Information. We may collect and use technical data and related information—including but not limited to technical information about your device, system and application software, peripherals and your interactions with the Service—that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support, product enhancements and other services to you (if any) related to the Service. We may also automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or mobile device, which could include your IP address, cookie information, browser information and the page you request. We may also collect user location information, as further described in the “Global Positioning System” paragraph below.
YEI may be aggregate such information and use it to enhance the Service to you. Note that Technical Information may be considered Personal Information in some jurisdictions.
We may use standard Internet technology, such as web beacons and other similar technologies, to track your use on our sites and software. We also may include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. The information we obtain in this manner enables us to customize the services we offer our users to deliver targeted advertisements and to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, programming or other activities.

You own all right, title, and interest in and to any data that we collect from you via your use of and interaction with the Service (“Data”). You also grant YEI a perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, sublicensable, royalty free license to use such Data in order to collect, develop, create, extract or otherwise generate statistics and other information and to otherwise compile, synthesize and analyze such Data (“Blind Data”). Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, to the extent that YEI collects or generates Blind Data, such Blind Data will be owned solely by YEI and may be used for any lawful business purpose without a duty of accounting to you or your company, provided that such data is not personally identifiable and does not identify the source of such data. You agree and acknowledge that post termination or expiration of the period of Service, you may not have access to the Data.
C). Our Sharing of Information to Third Parties
Except as set forth herein and for certain Information that YEI provides to your company, YEI does not rent, sell or share Information with or to third parties, and Information is only used to provide you with YEI products and services and to comply with any requirements of law.
Agents, technology vendors and/or contractors of YEI may have access to your Information on a need to know basis for the purpose of performing services on behalf of YEI or providing or enabling elements of the Service. All such agents or contractors who have access to such information are required to keep the Information confidential and not use it for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for YEI or as otherwise required by law.
YEI or its agents or contractors may disclose Information (A) if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process; (2) address disputes, claims or to protect and defend the rights or property of YEI or its agents or contractors; or (3) to address emergencies or acts of God or to act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Service or the public or (B) to any other third party with your prior consent to do so.

This information is transmitted to YEI, our users, and temporarily stored by us. We do not provide this information to any other third party. This information is used in conjunction with YEI’s applications.
If YEI should ever merge with another organization, file for bankruptcy, or sell our assets or capital stock, we may transfer the Information to a third party or share the Information to the company or its agents with which we enter into such transaction as a part of such transaction.
D). Our Security Measures to Protect Your Information
We maintain physical, technical, and administrative safeguards designed to protect the Information from the risk of accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration or unauthorized disclosure or access.
Despite the actions and precautions we take, no data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of the Information and you acknowledge and agree that you transmit it to us at your own risk.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose Information on our message boards or other public forums or features or through e-mail or group messaging, or voluntarily utilize features of the Service that inherently share Information, that Information can be collected and used by others, including your company. In short, by posting Information online that is publicly accessible (i.e. within message boards and the like), you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return or make others aware of your location. We are not responsible for the security or privacy of any Information you choose to submit in connection with these public features.
You acknowledge that certain information or content that you provide in connection with the Service may inherently allow or help third parties to personally identify or locate you.
Information Retention: We will retain your Information only for as long as is necessary to fulfil the business purpose it was collected, for example, for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with our Service. We will also retain and use your Information for as long as is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

This Privacy Statement outlines our general policy and practices for implementing the Principles, including the types of information we gather, how we use it and the notice and choice affected individuals have regarding our use of and their ability to correct that information. This Privacy Statement applies to all personal information received by YEI whether in electronic, paper or verbal format.

“Sensitive Personal Information” means personal information that reveals race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or that concerns an individual’s health.
Notice. YEI shall inform an individual of the purpose for which it collects and uses the Personal Data and the types of non-agent third parties to which YEI discloses or may disclose that Personal Data. YEI shall provide the individual with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of their Personal Data. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Data to YEI, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before YEI uses or discloses the Personal Data for a purpose other than for which it was originally collected. YEI may be required to disclose Personal Data in response to lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
YE may collect your first and last name, shipping address, email address and YEI password, age, and credit card or other payment information that you choose to provide to YEI. We may ask you to provide Personal Information that will enable us to enhance your use of the Service, or for purposes such as facilitating correspondence with you or your company, registering your entitlement to access certain special features, or to complete transactions. We also collect information on the pages you access and other information you may volunteer, such as survey information. It is always your choice whether or not to provide that Personal Information to us and this is not a requirement for the use of the Service. Choice. YEI will offer individuals the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether their Personal Data is (1) to be disclosed to a third party or (2) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. For Sensitive Personal Information, YEI will give individuals the opportunity to affirmatively or explicitly (opt out) consent to the disclosure of the information for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. YEI shall treat Sensitive Personal Information received from an individual the same as the individual would treat and identify it as Sensitive Personal Information.
Agents, technology vendors and/or contractors of YEI may have access to your Personal Data on a need to know basis for the purpose of performing services on behalf of YEI or providing or enabling elements of the Service. All such agents or contractors who have access to such information are required to keep the Information confidential and not use it for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for YEI or as otherwise required by law.
Accountability for Onward Transfer. Prior to disclosing Personal Data to a non-agent third party, YEI shall notify the individual of such disclosure and allow the individual the choice (opt out) of such disclosure. YEI shall ensure that any third party for which Personal Data may be disclosed subscribes to the Principles or are subject to law providing the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Principles and agree in writing to provide an adequate level of privacy protection. YEI may be held responsible in cases of onward transfers to third parties.

YEI cannot guarantee the security of Personal Data on or transmitted via the Internet.
Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation. YEI shall only process Personal Data in a way that is compatible with and relevant for the purpose for which it was collected or authorized by the individual. To the extent necessary for those purposes, YEI shall take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Data is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use.
Access and Recourse. YEI acknowledges the right of Swiss and/or EU individuals to access their personal data. Individuals shall be allowed access to their Personal Data and be permitted to correct, amend or delete inaccurate information, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the privacy of the individual in the case in question or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.
