Other Personal Information

As Visitors navigate or interact with YFAI's websites, YFAI may automatically collect information through the use of commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and Web beacons.

Cookies are small text files automatically stored on Your computer when You visit Our website, if You permit cookies in Your browser.

Data we collect via cookies is saved by us using the same strict security measures taken with all other information. We only use this data to the extent defined in this data protection policy or the Cookie Policy, respectively.

Own cookies

YFAI uses cookies that are session-based, except the cookie by which we check whether You have accepted cookies (which is stored for 1 year unless You delete this cookie yourself earlier). Such session cookies exist only during one session. They disappear from the Visitor’s computer upon closing their browser software or turning off their computer.

In addition, performance cookies are used. These cookies help Us understand how Visitors interact with Our websites by providing information about the areas visited, the time spent on the website, and any issues encountered, such as error messages. This helps us improve the performance of Our websites.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics cookies are used to collect information about how Visitors use Our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of Visitors to the site, where Visitors have come to the site from, and the pages they visited.

Third party cookies and content

Some YFAI websites incorporate content and services from other providers (e.g. Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn and Xing). These may use cookies and active components. YFAI has no control or influence on the processing of personal data by these providers. Your interactions with a particular feature are governed by the applicable privacy policy of the company providing such feature. Please refer to the respective provider‘s websites for information about how Your data is handled.


Most browsers have an option for You to determine at all times how cookies are handled in Your browser. For example, You can prevent Our website storing cookies on Your computer or You can also delete cookies stored during Your visits to Our website from Your computer at any time. However, please note that this can result in some functions no longer working to their full extent.

Use of external links

Our websites may contain links to third-party websites operated by providers that are not associated with YFAI. After You click the link, we no longer have any influence over the collection, or processing of any personal data transmitted by clicking the link (such as the IP address or URL of the page that contains the link). Therefore, YFAI is not responsible for the processing of personal data by third parties.

Use of Information Collected / Transfer

YFAI (or a service provider engaged by YFAI) uses the log data for statistical analysis only for the purpose of operating, securing and enhancing its website. However, YFAI reserves the right to subsequently review log data if there is concrete evidence justifying the suspicion of unlawful use.

Our employees and the service providers engaged by YFAI are obliged to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the provisions of applicable data protection rules.

Insofar as Visitors submit contact information (for example, an e-mail address) or demographic information (for example, their zip code, employing industry, or country) YFAI uses the data collected to contact the Visitor who submitted such information.

When You provide us with personal data, we use it to inform You about Our products and services and, where applicable, to include You in surveys about them, provided You have given us Your express consent to use Your personal data for advertising purposes. If You have granted Your consent for such use, but no longer wish to receive advertising from Us, You can revoke Your consent at any time. Your data is then deleted, or provided that it is necessary for billing and accounting purposes, blocked accordingly.

YFAI may transfer Personal Information to companies that help us provide Our Services which may reside in another country than yours.

Except as described in the Privacy Statement, YFAI will not give, sell, rent, or loan any identifiable Personal Information to any third party, without a Visitor’s prior consent. YFAI may disclose such information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims. YFAI may also share such information if the Company believes it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of YFAI’s terms of service or other, related contract terms, or as otherwise required by law.

YFAI will retain and use this Personal Information as necessary to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce Our agreements.
