Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important. Here are the basics:

  • Yarn Database won’t ask you for personal information unless it’s truly needed.
  • Yarn Database won’t share your personal information with anyone beyond site administrators except to comply with the law or protect our rights.
  • Yarn Database doesn’t store personal information on its servers unless required for the ongoing operation of the site.
  • It is Yarn Database’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information that may be collected while operating the website.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, Yarn Database collects nonpersonally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visit. The purpose is to better understand how visitors use the website. Yarn Database may release nonpersonally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., to establish website traffic. Yarn Database also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users leaving reviews. The IP addresses are visible to site administrators. Yarn Database only discloses logged in user and review IP addresses to comply with the law or protect our rights.

Personally Identifying Information
Some users may voluntarily supply Yarn Database with personally identifying information. For example, Yarn Database may ask visitors who leave reviews to provide a username and email. This information is not shared with third parties and is only used for the purposes described.

Protection of Certain Personally Identifying Information
Yarn Database site administrators are the only persons who can see potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information. Administrators may be located outside of your home country; by using the site, you consent to this disclosure. User information will not be rented, shared or sold to anyone except for the following: Yarn Database discloses this information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Yarn Database believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the site, third parties or the public at large. Yarn Database takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information.

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Yarn Database uses cookies for aggregate statistical purposes. If you don’t want to have cookies on your computer, set your browser to refuse cookies before using the site. Certain features may not function properly without cookies.

Business Transfers
If Yarn Database or substantially all of its assets were acquired, went out of business or entered bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Yarn Database may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

If Yarn Database takes ads, they may be delivered by advertising partners who may use cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an ad to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Yarn Database and does not cover the use of cookies by advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Yarn Database may change this Privacy Policy from time to time at its sole discretion. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of any changes.
