What information we collect and how we collect it.

1.1 Collection of Information. YARPP collects information from you when you voluntarily provide it to YARPP or by other means, such as registration pages operated by third party publisher networks (collectively, a "User Form"). In a User Form, YARPP or a third party such as a blog, website, or other third party working with YARPP (each such third party a “Publisher”) may ask you for information such as your name, your company’s name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers, and job title (together, "User Information"). Completing the User Form is voluntary and you are under no obligation to provide User Information. Information about business partners of YARPP, including Publishers and advertisers, may be collected through various means in the course of conducting business operations, such as through contracts and by emails exchanged with those partners (all such information being “Business Information”).

YARPP uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about you, such as Internet Protocol address and what Web browser you are using, with certain of your online behaviors, such as opening or clicking on a particular online advertisement. Additionally, YARPP may use other new and evolving sources of information and information gathering in the future as they become available (together, "Technology Information").

(a) Cookies.

(b) Web beacons. A web beacon is programming code used to display an image on a web page and can also transfer an individual's or Publisher’s user identification to a database and associate the individual or Publisher with previously acquired information about them.
