1. Information We Collect and How We Use It:
YCD will not share, sell, auction off or give away, your personal information to any third party or other organization provided to us through the Site except under this Policy and subject to your consent.
In order to provide our Services, we may collect the following types of information:
• Information You Provide - When you visit the Site and use certain Services we may require you to provide contact information including without limitation: full name, email address, company name, country of origin, etc.
• Personal Information - We process your personal information only for specific and limited purposes, including the provision of the Services. We ask only for personal information that is adequate, relevant and not excessive for those purposes. Some of these purposes may include to inform you of new services we will be providing, to send you requested product information and promotional material, for marketing purposes and market research, and internally to help us improve our Services and to help resolve any problems.
• User Information - When you use our Services, we may automatically receive and record information from your computer, documents and browser, including your IP address, cookie information, software and hardware attributes. We also use your IP address to help with server problem diagnosis and to administer our Site. An IP address is a numeric code that identifies your computer on a network, or in this case, the Internet. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information. We may also perform IP lookups to determine which domain you are coming from (i.e: aol.com, yourcompany.com) to more accurately gauge our users' demographics.
• Anonymous Data Collected Through the Site - In addition to the information we collect as described above, we may use technology to collect anonymous information about the use of the Site. For example, YCD's Web server may automatically log which pages of the Site our visitors view, their IP addresses and which Web browsers the Site's visitors use. This technology does not identify you personally, it simply enables YCD to compile statistics about the Site's visitors and their use of our Services. The Site contains hyperlinks to other pages on YCD's Site. YCD may use technology to track how often these links are used and which pages on the Site our visitors choose to view. Again this technology does not identify you personally – it simply enables YCD to compile statistics about the use of these hyperlinks.
• User Communications - When you send an email or other communication to YCD, YCD may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our Services.
• Links - Links to other sites may be provided by YCD as a convenience to our customers. YCD is not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. This Policy applies solely to information collected by YCD and related to the Site.
• Children - If you are a child under the age of 18, you must obtain parental consent prior to using our Service. YCD will not knowingly contact or engage with children under the age of 18 without said parental consent. If you have reason to believe that a child has provided us with their personal information, please contact us at the address given above and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.
• Maintenance - YCD uses the information that you provide or that we collect to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features and services found on the Site.
• E-Mail Addresses - By actively subscribing with the Site, you understand and agree that we may send you communications or data regarding the Services, including but not limited to (i) notices about your use of the Services, including any notices concerning violations of use, (ii) updates, and (iii) promotional information and materials regarding YCD’s products and services, via electronic mail. We give you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving electronic mail from YCD, at any time, by following the opt-out instructions provided in the message.

• Requests to delete personal information are subject to any applicable legal and ethical reporting or document retention obligations imposed on YCD.
• We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required.
