This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies, text files stored on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google in their data centres. We use Google Analytics with an anonymisation add-on so that the IP addresses later transmitted to Google are modified in advance to prevent any direct references to particular persons. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. Your IP address, which has been transmitted by Google Analytics, will not be associated with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. Furthermore, you can prohibit Google from collecting and analysing the cookie generated data about your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

If you visit Our website using a mobile device (e.g. a smartphone or tablet), you can refuse the future use of Google Analytics via this link. By activating the link, We will put a cookie in your browser, which signals to Us that We should prevent Google Analytics from using your device. Please keep in mind that you will have to repeat the refusal process if you remove the cookies from your browser.

Cookies and other systems

If you visit Our website it will automatically connect some information about you and your visit, including the IP address used to connect your device to the internet and some other information such as your browser type and version and the pages on Our website that you visit.

Our website may also use cookies to distinguish you from other users of Our website. This helps Us to provide you with a good experience when you browse Our website and also allows Us to improve Our site. For detailed information on the cookies We use and the purposes for which We use them see Our Cookie policy.

Other Information: We may also collect some information from other sources. For example:

  • We sometimes collect information from third party data providers or publicly available sources and to protect Our business and comply with Our legal and regulatory obligations.

Our Use of Your Information:

We may use the personal information described above in order to:

  • provide education and training to Our customers and clients;
  • operate, manage, develop and promote Our business and Services, in particular, Our relationship with you or the organisation you represent (if any)– for example, for marketing purposes;

We will only process your personal information as necessary so that We can pursue the purposes described above, and then only where We have taken the necessary steps (including strict security measures) to ensure that Our processing does not prejudice you or your privacy rights in a way that would override Our legitimate interest in pursuing those purposes. Some processing may also be necessary so that We can perform a contract with you or because We are required by law to disclose or otherwise process your personal data.

Although We do not generally rely on consent to process your personal data, this does not apply to processing in order to send you information about Our products and services. We will only use your information in this way with your consent if you have told Us you wish to receive this information when registering as a user or as a student company online or subsequently. You are free to withdraw your consent at any time. Please email Us at: ye-marketplace@y-e.org.uk if you are uncertain as to Our need for information that We request from you or if you wish you to unsubscribe from receiving information on our products and services.

Disclosures of Your Information:

We will keep your personal information provided to Us confidential and secure and will not disclose it, except where We have obtained your consent or where it is reasonably necessary for the various purposes set out above:

  • to any member of Our group, which means Our subsidiaries, Our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006;
  • to service providers who host Our website or other information technology systems or otherwise hold or process your information on Our behalf, under strict conditions of confidentiality and security;

Where We Store Your Personal Data

The data that We collect from you may be transferred to, stored at, and processed by staff, at a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). If you are dealing with Us within the EEA (or the United Kingdom, after it has left the EEA), you should be aware that this may include transfers to countries which do not have similarly strict data privacy laws. However, unless they are located in a country which has been assessed by the European Commission as ensuring an adequate level of protection for personal data, We will ensure that Our arrangements with any service provider or other members of Our group are governed by data transfer agreements or mechanisms, designed to ensure that your personal information is protected (including, where appropriate, under an agreement on terms approved for this purpose by the European Commission) – please contact Us at ye-marketplace@y-e.org.uk if you would like to know whether any such agreements are in place or to see a copy of any of these agreements. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with this data privacy policy.

Retaining and Deleting Your Information:

How long do We keep your personal information?

We will keep and delete your information according to Our records management policies, which provide for a period of up to 6 months.

We retain personal information We collect from you where We have an ongoing organisational need to do so (for example, to provide you with a Service you have requested or to comply with the law or tax or accounting requirements or to deal with any claim which you, We or somebody else may have in respect of personal information).

When We no longer have an organisational need to process personal information, We will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (for example, because the personal information has been stored in backup archives), then We will securely store the personal information and make sure that it is not processed until We can delete it.

Your Rights in Relation to Our Processing of Your Information:

You have a right of access to the personal data that We hold about you, and to some related information relating to you which is kept on file by Us by emailing Us at ye-marketplace@y-e.org.uk, under data protection law. You can also require any inaccurate personal information to be corrected or deleted. You can object to Our use of your personal information for direct marketing purposes at any time and you may have the right to object to or restrict Our processing of some or all of your personal information (and require them to be deleted) in some other circumstances. In some circumstances you may have a "data portability" right to require Us to transfer your information to you or another organisation. If you wish to exercise (or find out more about) any of these rights, please email Us at: ye-marketplace@y-e.org.uk.

Our website may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of Our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy notices or policies. To the extent any linked websites are not owned or controlled by Us, We do not accept any responsibility or liability related to their content, any use of the websites or the privacy practices of those websites.
