Sharing Information

Yesco Ltd. will not disclose personally identifiable information to any third party except under circumstances where we are required to do so by law. We reserve the right to disclose any personal information supplied by a user when we believe in good faith that any applicable law, regulation, or legal process requires it, or when we believe disclosure is necessary to protect or enforce our rights or the rights of another user. We also reserve the right to disclose aggregated user statistics (such as site traffic reports) in order to maintain and/or promote our services. Such aggregate reports contain no personally identifiable information.

Marketplace Registration and Use

You are required to register with our site to list your company, post articles/press releases, maintain journals and post buy/sell offers in the Marketplace. Your email address and personally identifiable information are collected during this process. Optional information (such as no. of employees, annual revenue, and general interests) may be provided at your discretion to personalize your business profile, but is not required to utilize the service(s). Some of this information appears online in a Member Profile page accessible via a Member directory and links from messages you have posted. If you are uncomfortable with the disclosure of such information, it should not be provided on the registration form.

You are given an opportunity upon registration to elect whether to activate a personal contact form and whether to accept or refuse the Internet cookie which remembers your username and password on subsequent visits. Should you later wish to change these preferences, you may do so by accessing your registration information via the "My Account" link located at the top left of every page. (See the section on "Corrections and Updates" below.) Additionally, your computer's IP (or Internet Protocol) address is logged each time you post a message or reply in the Marketplace. (An IP address is a number assigned to your computer and does not include personally identifiable information.) Yesco logs this number at the time your post is made solely for the purpose of preventing abuse of the service. The information is never disclosed publicly, transferred to another party or used for any other purpose except as described in the section on IP Address Monitoring below.

Company Profile

Submission of information to the Network requires that you provide complete registration information including your real name and email address. This information is collected and used to inform you of the site's acceptance or refusal of your registration application and (if accepted) to send occasional communications regarding the maintenance of your account. URLs and email addresses entered in the site description field during submission are considered to be part of the description itself and may be posted and/or linked from any directory page at the Site Administrator's sole discretion.

Corrections and Updates

Our site provides the following options for modifying information you have previously submitted.

  1. Marketplace User Profile Information
    If you wish to change any of the information contained in your user profile, you may do so by visiting the "My Account" section of the web site.

  2. Posted Content
    If you are a Pro or Premium member, you are free to revise, publish, unpublish and delete your own content at any time. Basic users can edit, publish and unpublish their own content, but cannot delete content. Basic users who wish to delete content must contact the site's administrator.

Options for Removal

You may request the removal of corporate and/or contact information from our database by sending an e-mail to support@yescoltd.com with a detailed description of the request. A return confirmation will be sent to affirm the validity of your request. The information will be removed only at such time as you respond to the confirmation request. Residual information may remain in our archives. However, such information will not be used by Yesco Ltd. for any commercial purpose. We reserve the right to retain any user information we have on record in order to detect activity on our network by a user who has been blocked or banned from using the service. In addition to the options above for the elimination of corporate information from our databases, the following options are provided for the removal of specific user profile information.

  1. Marketplace User Profile Removal
    Send an email to support@yescoltd.com requesting the removal of your user profile from the Marketplace database. The data will be removed only upon receipt of confirmation. Please note that any messages posted prior to such a request are entirely unaffected by the removal of your user profile and will remain in the Marketplace unless you have specifically stated otherwise. Once your profile has been removed, you may still read other users posts. However, you will be unable to post new messages or reply to others' unless you renew your subscription to the service.
  2. Content Removal
    Send an email to support@yescoltd.com requesting the removal of any content you have posted to the service. The data will be removed only upon receipt of confirmation.

Cookie Technology

A "cookie" is a digital message that is sent to your Internet browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive in a browser-generated file. Most Internet sites utilize cookie technology as a necessary and effective method of keeping track of login names and passwords as well as user activity across their networks. Cookies increase the convenience of online services and are sometimes even essential to their use. While you have the ability to set your browser's preferences to reject all cookies, this is inadvisable unless you are working from a shared location. Cookies are used to remember your username and password upon subsequent visits so that you will not have to enter them for each browser session.

IP Address Monitoring

An IP address is a unique number assigned to a computer which is transmitted by an Internet browser to each server accessed as a user travels the Internet. Each and every computer surfing the Internet broadcasts such a number, which contains no personally identifiable information. Yesco's servers (as do most) receive and log this address for the purposes of systems administration and to gather statistical information with which to improve our services. Aside from logging the IP addresses of users posting messages in the Marketplace, IP numbers are also used to report information such as site traffic statistics to third parties, partners and investors.

Conclusion

This site contains links to other Internet sites. Yesco Ltd. is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such Web sites. We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time with or without notice. If you have questions or concerns about specific policies, please send an e-mail to support@yescoltd.com.
