PRIVACY NOTICE

Introduction

Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (referred to herein as “Yo San University” , “the University” or “YSU”) understands the importance of privacy, and is committed to protecting your personal information. This privacy notice outlines the personal information the University may collect and how the University will use and disclose that information.

Information Collection

Yo San University may collect two different types of information, Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. “Personally Identifiable Information” (“PII”) is information that identifies you as an individual for example, your name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card information, billing address and mail address information. “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” (“Non-PII”) is aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses, user behavior data from web interaction metrics tools and any other information that does not reveal your specific identity.

When visiting the Yo San University maintained websites, Yo San University may collect PII about you that may be considered sensitive.

Yo San University may also collect PII about you from, among other places: information you provide directly to us, information regarding the services that Yo San University currently provides or has previously provided to you, information Yo San University receives from our affiliated entities or third parties relating to the establishment of our relationship or the provision of services to you.

This information can be received in any manner, including in-person discussions, telephone conversations, and electronic or other written communications.

Cookies

We may collect information about your general internet usage by using a cookie file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. They help us to improve our site and to deliver a better and more personalized service. They enable us to estimate our audience size and usage pattern, to store information about your preferences (and so allow us to customize our site according to your individual interests), to speed up your searches and to recognize you when you return to our site. You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if you select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of our site. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to our site.

Information Use

Yo San University may collect PII about you to establish or maintain our relationship with you, respond to your inquiries, provide you with services you have requested, keep you informed of services we think may be of interest to you, personalize your experience with us, and other reasons.

Without PII, Yo San University may be unable to provide you with the services you have requested.

Disclosure of Information

Yo San University does not sell or lease PII about you to others.

Yo San University may share PII about you with others as permitted by contractual agreement or as required by law, such as our affiliates, third parties in connection with the provision of services to you, government entities and regulatory bodies, and those with whom you have requested us to share information.

Unless restricted by law, regulation, contract or professional standards, Yo San University may transfer PII about you outside of the United States to other countries for the purposes described in this privacy notice.

Yo San University will not share PII about you with an unaffiliated third party who is not performing services for us without first obtaining your permission, except if such sharing is otherwise permitted by this privacy notice.

Yo San University will provide PII about you to the following types of third parties for the associated reasons:

Financial Institutions: Yo San University will provide financial institutions with your payment information, name, address, and phone number in order to process and complete payment of the transaction made by you to Yo San University.

Yo San University requires third parties who perform services for us to agree to treat PII about you confidentially and securely. Prior to collection your PII, any such third parties are required to sign a service agreement, which includes the privacy policy outlined here.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this notice or the Terms and Conditions of Use to the contrary, we reserve the right to disclose and use your PII if we believe that we are required to do so: (a) by law; (b) in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena; (c) in response to a law enforcement agency’s request; (d) to enforce our other terms, conditions, or policies; (e) to protect our operations; (f) to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of Yo San University, you or others; and/or (g) to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages we may sustain. For example, we may to the fullest extent the law allows, disclose PII about you to law enforcement agencies to assist them in identifying individuals who have been or may be engaged in unlawful activities.

Because Non-PII does not personally identify you, we reserve the right to use Non-PII, and to disclose Non-PII to third parties, for any purpose.

Access

You may request access to the PII that Yo San University has about you. You may also request the correction, amendment or deletion of PII about you that is inaccurate. Yo San University will treat requests for access, correction, amendment or deletion of PII about you in accordance with its internal policies and applicable legal requirements.

Information Security and Integrity

Yo San University maintains reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to protect PII from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Our personnel and the personnel of our affiliates are provided access to PII about you only if they have a need to know the information in connection with a legitimate business purpose, such as

(a) the provision of services to you or (b) to help identify other services that Yo San University and its affiliates offer that may be of interest or use to you.

Additionally, Yo San University will only use PII for the purpose which it was intentionally collected. Yo San University will take reasonable measures to safeguard your information and ensure that is accurate, complete and current.
