With so many different ways today to find information online, it can sometimes be hard to know where to go to first. I want to look at the major and most effective ways.
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Our primary goals in collecting personal information are to provide you with the products and services made available through the Site, including, but not limited, to the Software, to communicate with you, and to manage your registered user account, if you have one. When you register on our site or use the Software, we ask for information such as your name, company name or affiliation, password, email address and telephone number (your “Personal Information”).
YesElf also collects the email addresses of people who communicate with YesElf via email, create accounts or post a public question on the Website forum. When you post content on or through the Site by way of public posts or survey information etc., any Personal Information you post may be viewed by others.
If you decide to buy the Software, YesElf may collect additional information from you, including but not limited to billing and account information for credit cards, payment cards or other payment systems. YesElf may share this information with YesElf’s billing and payment processor(s).
YesElf does not store credit card or payment card numbers after they have been forwarded to its billing and payment processor(s), unless it is necessary to providing you the Software.
DO NOT TRACK AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
Some web browsers may transmit Do Not Track signals to websites with which the browser communicates, telling the site not to follow its online movements. Because of differences in how web browsers interpret this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they are even aware of them. Therefore, YesElf’s website currently does respond to such Do Not Track signals.
We partner with a third party to either display advertising on our website or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partner may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on this website and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by clicking here (or if located in the European Union click here). Please note this does not opt you out of being served ads. You will continue to receive generic ads.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer the site.
HOW INFORMATION IS USED
YesElf uses the information it collects from you to deliver YesElf services to you and continuously enhance your user experience. Generally speaking, we use the collected information to communicate with you, fulfill your requests, customize the content, improve our products and services, protect our and your rights, and comply with laws and regulations.
YesElf may use your Personal Information to send you promotional information and updates regarding YesElf and its products and services. You may choose not to receive such information and opt-out of such future communications. All such communications sent to you will contain the instructions for opting-out.
In addition to these optional email messages, YesElf may contact you via any email address you provide to us with transactional or relationship messages such as account status messages, security updates or notifications of changes in the terms of your account or the YesElf Service. These types of transactional or relationship email messages are not optional.
WITH WHOM INFORMATION IS SHARED
YesElf may share as it sees fit information that you voluntarily make public, including information that you post on any blogs, message boards, chat rooms or other similar forums, whether or not such forums are owned by YesElf. Since such public information can be accessed by the public and used by any member of the public, such use by third parties is beyond the control of YesElf. To request removal of your personal information from our blog or community forum, contact us at [email protected]. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
We also display personal testimonials of satisfied customers on our website in addition to other endorsements. With your consent, we may post your testimonial along with your name. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us at [email protected].
YesElf may share Personal Information under the following circumstances:
We may share your Personal Information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, to establish or exercise our legal rights, to defend against legal claims or in such circumstances where, in our judgment, disclosure is required or appropriate in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
We may share your Personal Information if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our various terms of service or as otherwise required by law.
If you chose to subscribe to the Software, YesElf uses the services of a credit card processing company to bill our users for subscription fees. These third parties do not retain, share or store this personal information or its part other than for providing these services and are bound by strict agreements limiting their use of such information.
HOW INFORMATION IS PROTECTED
We use a combination of process, technology and physical security controls to help protect Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When Personal Information is transferred over the Internet, we encrypt it using Transfer Layer Security (TLS) encryption technology or similar technology. However, no security controls are 100% effective, and we cannot completely ensure or warrant the security of your Personal Information.
USER ACCESS AND CHOICE
Upon request, YesElf will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. You may also send us an email at [email protected] to correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF INFORMATION
Please be aware that information you provide to us or we obtain as a result of your use of the Site or the Software may be processed and transferred all countries in which YesElf has offices and operations and be subject to applicable law. This information may also be processed by staff working for us or for one of our suppliers. The privacy and data protection laws in such countries may not be equivalent to such laws in your country of residence. By using our website or any of the Software, or by providing us with your information, you consent to this collection, transfer, storage, and processing of information to and in countries.
INFORMATION RELATING TO CHILDREN

If you are under 13, do not register or attempt to register for any of the YesElf Service or send any information about yourself to us. No one under the age of 13 may provide any Personal Information to, on or through the YesElf Service. If we learn that we have collected or have been sent Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that Personal Information as soon as reasonably practical. If you believe that we might have collected or been sent Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, please contact our Support team as soon as possible.
THIRD PARTY LINKS
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our Site. Be sure to read the privacy policies, supplemental notices, and settings of all websites or platforms that you visit so you can understand their privacy practices and your options. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our Site and welcome and feedback about these sites.
SOCIAL MEDIA WIDGETS
The use of information collected through our Service shall be limited to the purpose of providing the Service for which the Client has engaged YesElf.
YesElf does not intend to collect personal data through its Service (as opposed to YesElf website, where YesElf may collect personal information you choose to provide as described under the paragraph titled, “COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION”). YesElf has no direct relationship with End Users of the Service, so if an End User submits personal information to the Service, YesElf will secure the data using the same guidelines and using the same controls as for non-personal data. YesElf will remove any personal data posted by end users upon discovering it.
An End User of the Service who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data should direct his query to the respective relelvant YesElf Client (the data controller) through which such End User was provided access to the YesElf Service. If requested in accordance with the foregoing to remove data we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.
We will retain data we process on behalf of our Clients for as long as needed to provide services to our Client. YesElf will retain data as much as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
When you download and use our Services, we automatically collect information on the type of device you use, operating system version and the device identifier (or “UDID”).
We do not ask for, access or track any location based information from your mobile device at any time wile downloading or using our Mobile apps or Services.
We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our Mobile Software on your phone. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the application was downloaded from. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any personal information you submit within the mobile application.
