COOKIES AND IP ADDRESSES
We automatically receive and record information from your web browser when you login to the YPGroup website, including your IP address and cookie information. This information is used for fighting spam/malware and also to facilitate collection of data concerning your interaction with us (e.g., what links you have clicked on). Generally, we automatically collect usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to the site. We may use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, but not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often individuals interact with us.
INFORMATION COLLECTION, USE, AND SHARING
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell, rent, or share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to provide you with and improve the services we offer.
If you do not wish to receive marketing-related emails from us, you may unsubscribe from receiving them by clicking the appropriate link at the bottom of the email.
By RSVPing and/or attending a YPGroup event or partner event, you consent to being photographed, filmed and/or otherwise recorded. Your RSVP and/or attendance constitutes your consent to such photography, filming and/or recording of your appearance, voice and name for any purpose whatsoever in connection with YPG, LLC (“YPGroup”), including commercial purposes.

Any credit/debit card payments and other payments you make through this Site will be processed by our third party payment provider, who is currently Stripe (see https://www.stripe.com) and the payment data you submit will be securely stored and encrypted by our payment service provider using up to date industry standards. Please note that we do not ourselves directly process or store the debit/credit card data that you submit.
We may arrange that card or payment data you submit in support of a membership application or subscription is stored for the purpose of processing your application, initiating your membership and collecting your subscription fees if your initial application is successful (or if you are put onto a membership waiting list, please note that this data may be stored for later use to initiate your membership and subscription).
We may also store and use this card or payment information for the purpose of processing any future payments that you make as a member for additional goods and services. We will store this data in accordance with our legal obligations under applicable law and only for so long as legally permitted.
SECURITY AND PRIVACY
YPGroup values your privacy and security and we take all possible precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via our website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as payment information), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (i.e. billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
