Like most website operators, ycss.com.au collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. YCSS’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website. This information is all statistical that can not be used to identify you as an individual. In the future YCSS may release some or all of this information as a report on usage.
YCSS also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
YCSS does not and will not use such information to identify our visitors. Nor will we disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to YCSS’s websites choose to interact with the website in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that YCSS gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who wish to provide feedback to our blogs to provide at minimum a name and an email. In each case, YCSS collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with YCSS. YCSS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
YCSS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on YCSS’s behalf or to provide services available at YCSS’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using YCSS’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. YCSS will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, YCSS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when YCSS believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of YCSS, third parties, or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of the YCSS website and have supplied your email address, YCSS may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with YCSS and our service. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you have signed up to our newsletter, YCSS will continue to email you once a month (and occasionally more often) until such a date in which you un-subscribe to our service. YCSS takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
