Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available in our footer and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
Log files are maintained and analysed of all requests for files on this web site's web servers. Log files do not capture personal information but do capture the user's IP address, which is automatically recognised by our web servers.
We comply with General Data Protection Regulation (2018).
We don't give out or sell your email address or private details.
Due to the nature of the internet, potential abuse of site facilities and for storage and archive purposes, the admins have the ability to examine and record the contents of the site databases at all levels. Please do not post anything that administrators could potentially see, that you would feel uncomfortable with.
The personally identifiable data held about you includes IP address (temporary, cleared after 90 days), username and email address (whether that is a real email address or not). Shop purchases may use your address for postal delivery. However online sales are restricted to a private opt-in group only (YSDC Patrons). Staff have access to this data in light of the above (i.e. for administrative tasks only).
Closed accounts are either deleted or anonymised.
We do not use Google Ads, Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel or Google/Facebook login sharing or its ilk.
We value the privacy of our community, as such we ask that users do not use tracking links in their posts. Simple affiliate links are fine.
Our Commitment to Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our web site from those we actually know are under 16, and no part of our web site is structured to attract anyone under 16.
Like virtually all other sites on the internet we do however make use of browser "cookie" files in order for YSDC to work effectively. Any cookies that may be used by this web site are used either solely on a per session basis or to maintain user preferences. Cookies are not shared with any third parties. To have your site login cookie erased when signing out, simply don't tick the "Remember Me" check box when logging in.
If you're uncomfortable with using browser cookies then you can adjust your browser settings to handle cookies as you wish.
This web site does not store any information that would, on its own, allow us to identify individual users of this service without their permission.
