You represent and warrant that you have the right and authority or have obtained all necessary consents to provide any information, including any personal information of another individual, that is provided by you to Yave.

Yave may also collect information that may not be personal information, which may include, but is not limited to, the frequency of user visits to the Sites and Services, the routes by which users access the Sites and Services and use of any hyperlinks available on the Sites and Services. Yave or its service providers and agents may process and use this aggregate data for various purposes including, but not limited to, analysis of this data for trends and statistics, development of the Sites and Services and the Sites’ and Services’ features and offerings, assessing patterns of use, or planning and evaluating marketing initiatives. This information is gathered by certain tools and methods such as the collection of your IP address or the use of cookies and is maintained, used and disclosed in aggregate form unless otherwise noted.

 

INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM OTHER SOURCES

 

Yave may obtain information about you from other sources and combine that with information we collect directly from you.  For example, we may collect information, such as your name and email address, from industry associations, non-governmental, and governmental bodies.  We use this information to verify identity and for analytics purposes.

 

COOKIES

 

Like many websites, Yave utilizes “cookies” to maintain a record of your visit to the Sites and your use of the Services. A cookie is a small text file that is transferred by a web server and stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device. It can only be read by the server that sent it to you. This information does not identify you personally and you remain anonymous unless you have otherwise provided Yave with personal information.

Cookies help Yave to improve the Sites and Services, and to deliver more personalized service by enabling Yave to estimate audience size and usage patterns; to store information about your preferences; to speed up your searches and to recognize you when you return to the Sites or use the Services.

 

Yave Website provider is Wix.  Wix uses cookies for many important reasons, such as:

  • To provide a great experience for your visitors and customers.

  • To identify your registered members (users who registered to your site)

  • To monitor and analyze the performance, operation and effectiveness of Wix's platform.

  • To ensure our platform is secure and safe to use. 

 

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. If you would prefer to prevent your computer from accepting Yave’s cookies, you may follow your Internet browser’s steps for doing so. Please note, however, that if you do disable cookies from your browser, you may not be able to access certain sections of the Sites or the Services.

 

IP ADDRESSES

 

An IP address is a computer's numeric address, by which it can be located within a network. Yave may record your IP address when you visit or use services or features on the Sites. Yave may use your IP address for the purposes noted above, and also to help diagnose problems with Yave’s server, or to administer the Sites. Yave may also use your IP address to identify you when Yave feels it is necessary to enforce compliance with this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use, or to protect the Sites, Services, systems, information, employees, service providers, business partners, users, customers and others.

 

THIRD PARTY ANALYTICS AND TRACKING

 

Yave uses automated devices and applications provided by third parties, such as Google Analytics (including Google Analytics’ Demographics and Interest Report) to evaluate usage of our Sites and Services. We also may use other analytic means to evaluate our Services.

THIRD PARTY INTEGRATED PAYMENT SYSTEM

 

Yave utilizes BlueSnap for its third party integrated payment system.  BlueSnap acts as a technology provider supplying secure online and mobile digital payment processing services to Yave as a merchant so that Yave vendors (supply-chain asset and service providers) can sell their goods and services to their shoppers (any buyer within the supply-chain, including end-consumers and general public) both domestically and worldwide via Yave Sites.

 

Yave uses API’s from its Sites to send and access personal information for the purposes of sending or receiving payments between its sellers and buyers, and charges for this as a Service.  Yave does not store any personal information required for these payments.  See   

BLUESNAP PRIVACY POLICY to see what information is collected, shared, and how it is secured by BlueSnap.

 

PROTECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION

 

To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy and facilitate the appropriate use of information, Yave uses physical, technological and administrative procedures to protect the personal information that Yave collects from loss, unauthorized access, modification, disclosure or other misuse.

 

Nevertheless, Internet or wireless transmissions are never completely private or secure. You understand that any messages or information you send to the Sites or through the Services may be read or intercepted by others.
