We do not collect or store any personally identifiable information regarding visitors to our website. We do, however, gather information regarding website use, traffic volumes, and visitor frequency. These metrics are used to improve our website and user experience. We do not gather or store personal information or maintain user accounts. Purchase information is not stored or accessible online.

To keep things as simple as possible, your privacy matters to us so whether you are new to Y-tek or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices – and if you have any questions contact us.

We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – We collect information about the pages that you use and how you use them. This information includes:

Device information

We collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information). This allows us to gauge the percentage of mobile traffic we receive, and helps us to understand how effectively our website is used by a multitude of internet devices.

Cookies and similar technologies

We use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit our website, and this may include using cookies or similar technologies to identify your browser or device. Our Analytics helps to analyze the traffic to our website. We use the information we collect from all of our visitors to maintain, protect and improve our website for ease of navigation and access to product information. We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our website. One of the products we use to do this is Google Analytics. 

We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy.

People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:

You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that some of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. 

Information we share

We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Y-tek without your consent unless legally required to do so. We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Y-tek if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:

  • meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
  • enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
  • detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
  • protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Y-tek, our users, or the public as required or permitted by law.

We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like advertisers. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our website.

If Y-tek is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any personal information and give affected users notice before personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Compliance and cooperation with regulatory authorities

We regularly review our compliance with our Privacy Policy. We also adhere to several self regulatory frameworks. When we receive formal written complaints, we will contact the person who made the complaint to follow up. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that we cannot resolve with our users directly.

Changes

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of privacy policy changes). We will also keep prior versions of this Privacy Policy in an archive for your review.
