(All abbreviations or definitions used in our Terms of Service are adopted herein)
“Personal Data” means data about a person who can be identified (i) from that data, or (ii) from that data and other information to which Yellow Porter has or is likely to have access.
By interacting with us using your Personal Data, or submitting your Personal Data to us, or signing up at the Platform and/or for our Services, you agree and consent to providing your Personal Data and the manner in which your Personal Data will be handled as set forth in this Policy. If you do not agree to abide by this Policy or any variation thereof, your only recourse is to cease using or accessing the Platform and/or our Services. The expression “variation” shall include any amendment, supplement, deletion or replacement howsoever reflected. Your continued use of the Platform and/or our Services after any such variation constitutes your acceptance of the latest terms of the Policy.
If you provide Personal Data on behalf of someone else when you register for an Account, you warrant that you have obtained the authorisation from that person to provide such Personal Data on his/her behalf and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Yellow Porter from any claim that such authority did not exist. If your Account is registered by someone else on your behalf and by using (or continuing to use) the Platform and/or our Services through your Account, you are deemed to have agreed to the terms of this Policy.
We will obtain Personal Data about you whenever you complete an online form, request information, subscribe to a mailing list or for our Services, respond to an online survey or otherwise actively send us data. For example, we will obtain your Personal Data when you register for an Account, send us feedback, contact us for any reason, sign up to our Services, or make a purchase. Whenever you volunteer such Personal Data, you are consenting to the manner in which it will be handled in accordance with this Policy. Wherever you are required to provide Personal Data, we make an effort to provide a link to this Policy.
Occasionally we may receive information about you from other sources, which we will add to the information we already hold about you in order to help us improve and personalise our Services to you.
If you choose not to provide any Personal Data whenever required by us in order to grant you access to the Platform, our Services and/or certain features or functions of the Platform, you will not be able to access or use the Platform, our Services and/or such features or functions of the Platform.
When you interact with us through the Platform (not necessarily through registration), we may receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. We may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by our affiliates, agents or service providers. The Platform may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to the Platform, the number of visitors to each page of the Platform, the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers, and how our users use and interact with our Services. Also, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of our Services, we often conduct research on our customer demographics, interests and behavior based on Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis. We may share such non-identifiable and aggregate data with our affiliates, agents and business partners, but this type of non-identifiable and aggregate information does not identify you personally. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe the Services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
We, along with the authorized third parties, may use technologies called beacons (or “pixels”) that communicate information from your device to a server. Beacons can be embedded in online content, videos, and emails, and can allow a server to read certain types of information from your device, know when you have viewed particular content or a particular email message, determine the time and date on which you viewed the beacon, and the IP address of your device. We and such third parties use beacons for a variety of purposes, including to analyze the use of the Platform and products and/or services offered by Yellow Porter and (in conjunction with cookies) to provide content and advertisements that are more relevant to you.
We, along with authorised third parties, may use other kinds of technologies, such as Local Shared Objects (“Flash cookies”) and Hypertext Markup Language revision 5 (HTML5) local storage, in connection with the Platform. We also may use unique identifiers associated with your device, such as mobile advertising identifiers. These technologies are similar to the cookies discussed above in that they are stored on your device and can be used to store certain information about your activities and preferences. However, these technologies may make use of different parts of your device from standard cookies, and so you might not be able to control them using standard browser tools and settings. For HTML5 local storage, the method for disabling HTML5 will vary depending on your browser. For Flash cookies, information about disabling or deleting information contained in Flash cookies can be found here ⧉.
Generally, we use Personal Data in order to provide our Services to you, and to personalise and improve our Services and your user and customer experience with Yellow Porter. Personal Data provided to us may be used:
We are not in the business of selling your information. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, such as the following situations:
Personal Data provided by you will be retained and stored as long as the purpose for which the data was required continues. Thereafter, we will destroy or delete the information, or remove the means by which the data can be associated with you, unless its retention is required to satisfy legal, regulatory, accounting or other business requirements or to protect our interests.
We have established relationships with advertisers and/or business partners but such relationships are generally technical in nature, or content collaborations. If any advertisers and/or business partners access to any information entered by Users in our database, this fact shall be disclosed to Users upon initiating the registration process. Users who feel they do not wish their information to be shared by anyone other than the Platform may then opt out of completing the registration.
If you give us information on behalf of someone else, you warrant that the other person has appointed you to act on his or her behalf and has agreed that you can:
We take reasonable steps to protect Personal Data provided to us via the Services and/or Platform from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. We will use technical and organisational measures to safeguard your Personal Data, for example:
When a User is asked to provide his/her credit card information, we provide a secure environment through our partners' systems (using industry standard SSL or SET protocols) for this purpose.
While we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard Personal Data, you acknowledge that the use of the Internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any Personal Data that are transferred from you or to you via the Internet.
We may monitor and record communications with you (such as telephone conversations and emails) for the purpose of quality assurance, training, fraud prevention and compliance.
For the prevention of fraud and money laundering, we may search the files of credit reference from fraud prevention agencies (who will record the search). If you provide false or inaccurate information and we suspect fraud, we may disclose information about how you conduct your Account to such agencies and if the situation warrants it, we may have to report to law enforcement authorities.
We may preserve the content of any email or "Contact Us" or other electronic message that we receive. Any Personal Data contained in those messages will only be used or disclosed in ways set out in this Policy. The message content may be monitored by our service providers or employees for purposes including but not limited to compliance, auditing and maintenance or where email abuse is suspected.
