Cookies

Like most websites, the Website uses cookies and web log files to track site usage. A cookie is a tiny data file which resides on your computer which allows the Website to recognize you as a user when you return to the website using the same computer and web browser. If your browser settings do not allow cookies, you may not be able to use the website.

We use cookies to improve the quality of our service by storing user preferences and tracking user trends. In the course of serving advertisements or optimizing services to our users, we may allow authorized third parties to place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. Any information provided to third parties through such cookies will not be personally identifiable but may provide general segment information, e.g. your industry or geographic location, your occupation, or information about your professional or educational background, for greater customization of your user experience. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Unfortunately, if your browser settings do not allow cookies or you opt to refuse all cookies, you may not be able to use the website or services. Yuma Street Ventures LLC does not store personally identifiable information in the cookies.

Web Beacons

We allow other companies, called ad networks, to serve advertisements to users. Ad networks include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. Yuma Street Ventures LLC may “target” some ads to users that fit a certain general profile – for example – health care professionals in Virginia. Yuma Street Ventures LLC does NOT use personally identifiable information to target ads.

To deliver these ads properly, Yuma Street Ventures LLC may include a file, called a web beacon, from these ad networks within pages served by Yuma Street Ventures LLC so the networks may provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for advertisers as well as to target ads to you while you visit other websites.

Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.

These general targets may also be used by ad networks to display targeted ads on other websites as a substitute for random, irrelevant ads. Yuma Street Ventures LLC does not provide personally identifiable information to any advertiser or any other third party.

LOGGING OF INFORMATION

Due to the communications standards on the Internet, when you visit the Website we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave the Website. We also receive the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, email patterns, as well as the name of your ISP. This information is used to analyze overall trends to help us improve the our service. The linkage between your IP address and your personally identifiable information is not shared with third-parties without your permission or except when required by law.

Sharing Information with Third Parties

Yuma Street Ventures LLC takes the privacy of Users very seriously. We do not sell, rent, or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to third parties for marketing purposes. We may provide aggregated anonymous data about the usage of our services to third parties for such purposes as we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate, including to prospective advertisers on the Website. We may segment our users by role (i.e. product managers, vice presidents), industry, geographic location, or company.

LEGAL DISCLAIMER

It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information when required by law, such as responses to civil or criminal subpoenas, or other requests by law enforcement personnel. We will disclose such information wherein we have a good-faith belief that it is necessary to comply with a court order, ongoing judicial proceeding, subpoena, or other legal process or request to Come Recommended brought in any country throughout the world, or to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
