Privacy Policy

Introduction

Yellow® is committed to protecting the privacy of personal information you might provide via any Yellow® website. This policy explains how we manage personal information.

Your personal information

You acknowledge and agree that we may collect information about you. The information may be obtained from;

  • Personal information provided voluntarily when registering
  • Website usage information through tracking your click behaviour
  • Aggregated data, measuring traffic to Yellow® Websites but not relating to you personally

You may decide whether to provide any information we seek from you. However, if you do not provide it, we may not be able to provide services to you.

Access to, disclosure and correction of your information

You may ask to seek information we hold about you, so long as we can readily retrieve it, and ask for any details that are wrong to be corrected. We may hold the information and share it with other Yellow® companies, but we will not disclose it to third parties without your consent or where we are required by law to disclose the information.

Use of cookies

To assist us in providing the best possible results from Yellow® How To for both users and advertisers, we occasionally need to gather information about how people use the site. The information collected by cookies will;

  • Display content more relevant to you
  • Enable you to use more advanced features on our websites

The information is collected on an entirely confidential basis via online cookies which request details such as:

  • How many PC’s connect to the site
  • Which pages are viewed
  • Which browsers people use when visiting e.g. Internet Explorer

Online cookies will be sent to your computer the first time you visit Yellow® online. A cookie is a message given to a Web browser by a Web server. The browser stores the message in a text file. The message is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. It identifies your computer as a unique computer but in no way identifies you nor harms your computer.

Yellow® How To uses two types of cookies. The first type is used for reporting on the use of the site, the other is used to provide you with key site functionality, such as retaining search queries.

If you do not wish to have a cookie placed on your computer for reporting purposes, please visit http://info.yellow.co.nz/optout.html. Alternatively you can choose to disable all cookies by managing your browser preferences. For most browsers this can be done via “Options” or “Preferences” under one of your browser menus.

Serving online advertisements

We use a third-party advertising company to serve ads when you visit our Web site. This company may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visit to this site in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertiser may place or recognize a unique “cookie” on your browser. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by this company, please visit http://www.doubleclick.net/us/corporate/privacy.

Changes to this policy

We may change this policy, by adding, changing or removing content, at any time. Any change applies from the time it is published on our web site at www.howto.yellow.co.nz.
