To keep things simple, we will be referring to Yorator.com and the members behind it as ‘this website’, ‘our website’, ‘us’/’we’, ‘Yorator’, etc.
Why Do We Need Information about You?
What’s the value of a website without its readers? We think our work would be in vain without other people to appreciate it. That’s why we need to communicate constantly with our readers and get feedback for all the content we publish here. Moreover, we also need information because we want to constantly improve and customize the information. Our aim is to offer you things that are relevant to you, which is why we want to narrow down the topics.
What Do We Collect?
Mainly, we collect two types of information: personal and non-personal. But let’s delve a little on each category.
This kind of data helps the website administrators identify the readers. Usually, this consists of:
- Your full name;
- Phone number;
- E-mail address;
- Physical address;
- Your workplace;
- Location, etc.
! Do not share this kind of information in the comments section. The section is public, so everybody might see this sensitive info. Note that we don’t require you to do this to leave a comment.
In case we need to gather personal data from you, rest assured that we will do so only after we ask and receive an explicit consent beforehand. For example, you need to fill in your details when signing up for an account on Yorator, for the newsletter, or if you want to post something on the forum.
This is information which we cannot use to identify you. Whenever you access Yorator, this kind of information is created. Another name for them is ‘log files’, and they let us know:
- The pages you landed you on our website;
- Your IP address;
- Your browser type;
- The date and time of your access, etc.
Third Party Sharing Rules
This is a question many people ask: does Yorator share personal information with third parties? The answer here is surely no. We will never share sensitive information about you with third parties. The only situation where we will do so is when the law will force us or in case we see a user performing some illegal/ suspicious activities.
Protecting the Information
Of course, we also make serious efforts to protect the information we have. However, it is solely your responsibility if you want to share personal data on our website. As much as possible, we try to let users access as much content as possible without requesting them this kind of information. We don’t allow any third parties to read the private information available on the website about our users, nor to send readers unsolicited content.
Another thing you should be aware of are the cookies. These are tools that let us know about our users’ preferences. Thus, we can make sure we provide targeted and optimized content, besides ensuring the desired performance. However, know that they only collect non-personal information and you can disable them from your browser. You just need to go to the privacy setting and enable or disable them.
Note that without the cookies enabled, the website may not perform at its best.
