3.3    Use of Data Collected: YSI is the sole business owner of the Data (i.e., as represented by the aggregate content and arrangement of the information collected about you on our Service) and will not sell, rent, or share the information collected in a manner that differs from what is disclosed in this Policy.

YSI, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to disclose any information that it obtains through our Service to appropriate governmental or regulatory authorities or governmental agencies, if required by law.

4. Security of Information


4.1    Any information sent by you to YSI through Internet email, website chat, text or social media messaging, or through our Service may not be secure and is therefore sent on a non-confidential basis and at your own risk.  Once such information is received, YSI takes appropriate security safeguards to prevent its unauthorized use, alteration, disclosure, or destruction. These safeguards include periodic review of our internal processes, and benchmarking of same with industry best practices.  


4.2    Access to Data is restricted to YSI employees, contractors, and agents on a need-to-know basis.  Such individuals are generally bound by confidentiality agreements and may be subject to termination and criminal prosecution should they fail to comply as required by said agreements and/or with the provision of this Policy.


5. Data integrity


5.1    YSI processes your Data only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with the provisions in this Policy.  Reasonable steps are taken to ensure the quality of the Data that YSI collects, processes, and stores. YSI depends on its users to keep their Data current and accurate. YSI conducts periodic reviews to ensure that only the Data required by our Service is captured and used consistent with the provisions of this Policy. The maintenance of data integrity is a joint collaborative effort between YSI and our users. 


5.2    YSI may delete Data, from time to time, upon the request of an individual user. YSI requires that a user present proper credentials for authentication before honoring all such requests.  Good faith attempts are made to work with individual users regarding Data related issues. YSI reserves the right to refuse such requests when they prove unduly burdensome and/or are impractical. YSI will not delete Data required to be kept by applicable law or Data otherwise required by YSI for legitimate business reasons.


6. Choices Regarding Data


6.1    Should YSI decide to use your Data other than for the purpose originally collected, YSI will do so only with your consent. You will be given the opportunity to opt out of any such use.  Should YSI become involved in a sale, acquisition, or any form of transfer of some or all its assets, then YSI will provide notice to you before your Data is subject to a new or different privacy policy.

YSI users are encouraged to pay attention when they leave our Service and to read the respective privacy policies of each website that collects PII. This Policy only applies to Data provided by you to YSI via our Service or through other mechanisms.
