How the ESN handles your personal information
The YNN will never pass your personal details on to any third parties, except where required by law.
For general users of the website
When you access the YNN website, your browser automatically transmits data to our web server for technical reasons. These include, but are not limited to, the date and time of access, URL of the referring web site, retrieved file, amount of data sent, browser type and version, operating system, and your IP address. This information is stored separately from other data associated with membership. It is not possible for us to assign the data to a specific person. This information is used only for statistical purposes and then deleted.
The YNN website uses SSL/TLS encryption to ensure that the connection between the website and web server is secure and all data is encrypted.
The YNN does not collect or retain personal information about general users of the website. If you send us comments/enquiries via the contact form (email), your details from the contact form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We do not share this information with third parties without your consent.
Social Plugins (Twitter)
The YNN website uses buttons of the microblogging service twitter.com, which is operated by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA (“Twitter”). The buttons are marked with a Twitter logo and terms such as “Twitter”, “Follow” or “Tweet”. With the help of the buttons it is possible to share an article or a page of our website on Twitter or to follow us on Twitter.
When you visit a page on our website that contains such a button, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Twitter servers. The content of the Twitter buttons is transmitted by Twitter directly to your browser and incorporated by the latter into the website.
We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data that Twitter collects with the help of this button. By integrating the buttons, Twitter receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to Twitter, Twitter can assign the visit to your Twitter profile. If you interact with the buttons, for example, press the “Follow” button or send a tweet, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Twitter and stored there. If you are not a member of Twitter, there is still the possibility that Twitter will find out and save your IP address.
If you are a Twitter member and do not want Twitter to collect information from you through our website and associate it with your member information stored on Twitter, you must log out of Twitter prior to visiting our website and, if necessary, delete cookies on your system through Twitter.
Links to other websites
The YNN website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over those other websites. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we believe we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
