- Your rights as a data subject
The European legislation (GDPR) grants data subjects a number of individual rights that can be exercised.
Here is a list of the rights you have under Regulation 2016/679:
Right of confirmation
You have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the Controller/Processor confirmation as to whether or not Personal data concerning you is being processed.
If you wish to exercise this right of confirmation, you may contact YNG at any time.
Right of access
You have the right to obtain from us free information about your Personal data stored at any time and a copy of this information. Where you make such a request by electronic means, and unless otherwise requested, this information will be provided in a commonly used electronic form.
Right to rectification
You have the right to request that your Personal data be rectified without undue delay, should it be found to be inaccurate. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to have incomplete Personal data of yours completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)
You have the right to terminate your account and have the Personal data concerning you erased without undue delay, as long as there is no other legal grounds for the processing of such data.
If you wish to terminate your account and erase your Personal data stored by us, you may contact us or simply delete your YNG account.
Right of restriction of processing
You can request that we limit our processing of your Personal data where one of the following applies:
- you think your Personal data is inaccurate, for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy of your Personal data;
- processing is unlawful and you do not wish for us to erase your Personal data but restrict its use instead;
- YNG no longer needs the Personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the Data subject for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims;
- you have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification whether your legitimate interests override those of YNG.
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and you wish to request the restriction of our processing, you may contact us.
YNG, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to communicate any rectification or erasure of Personal data or restriction of processing to each recipient to whom the Personal data have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. We will inform you about those recipients if you request it. We will arrange all the necessary measures in any individual cases.
Right to data portability
When processing is based on a contractual obligation or consent and when it is done automatically, you have the right to receive your personal data from YNG in a structured, widely used and machine-readable format, as well as request that your personal data be granted to another personal data controller when it is technically feasible.
Right to object
You have the right granted by the European legislator to object, at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to processing of Personal data concerning you, which is based on YNG’s legitimate interest. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
YNG will no longer process the Personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
Where we process personal data for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of your Personal data for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process the Personal data for these purposes.

Cookie & Similar Technology Policy
Date of Last Update: July 1, 2021 (“Revised Date”)
We allow carefully selected third parties to set cookies during your visit to our website. These third parties are some of our Service Providers that may use their own cookies, anonymous identifiers, or other tracking technology in connection with the services they perform on our behalf.
For almost any modern website to work properly, it needs to collect certain basic information on its users. To do this, a site will create files known as cookies – which are small text files – on its users’ computers. These cookies are designed to allow the website to recognize its users on subsequent visits, or to authorize other designated websites to recognize these users for a particular purpose. That improves the browsing experience for you and enables us to tailor better products and services to you and other website visitors. Cookies are stored locally on your computer or mobile device.
- analysing how you use our site which helps us to troubleshoot any problems and to monitor our own performance;
- for the purposes of security and complying to the settings of your software (e.g. so our website can load on your device);
- gathering data about visits to the website, including numbers of visitors and visits, length of time spent on the site, pages clicked on or where visitors have come from.
What cookies do we use?
There are two types of cookies:
Persistent cookies remain on a user’s device for a set period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.
Session cookies are temporary. They allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
What are cookies used for?
Cookies also have, broadly speaking, four different functions and can be categorized as follows: ‘strictly necessary’ cookies, ‘performance’ cookies, ‘functionality’ cookies and ‘targeting’ or ‘advertising’ cookies. We do not use advertising or targeting cookies on our Website.
Strictly necessary cookies are essential to navigate around a website and use its features. Without them, you wouldn’t be able to use basic website features. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you’ve been on the internet.
Examples of how we use ‘strictly necessary’ cookies include:
Setting unique identifiers for each unique visitor, so site numbers can be analysed.
Performance cookies collect data for statistical purposes on how visitors use a website; they don’t contain personal information such as names and email addresses, and are used to improve your user experience of a website.
Here are some examples of how we use performance cookies:
Gathering data about visits to the website, including numbers of visitors and visits, length of time spent on the site, pages clicked on or where visitors have come from.
For comparison with other website using data collected by industry-accepted measurement and research companies.
Information supplied by performance cookies helps us understand how you use the website; for example, whether or not you have visited before, what you looked at or clicked on and how you found us. We can then use this data to help improve our services. We generally use independent analytics companies to perform these services for us and when this is the case, these cookies may be set by a third-party company (third-party cookies).
Functional cookies allow users to customize how a website looks for them: they can remember usernames, language preferences and regions, and can be used to provide more personal services like local weather reports and traffic news.
Here are some examples of how we use functionality cookies:
Storing your language preferences on our Website
Remembering if you’ve been to the site before so that messages intended for first-time users are not displayed to you.
Who will have access to the cookies?
The cookies can be accessed by YNG where access is strictly necessary for the functioning and future improvement of our Website.
How can I exercise control over the cookies? What happens if I disable cookies?
Except for the cookies which are strictly necessary for the normal functioning of the website, you can disable all other types of cookies.
However, if you do that some features of this site may not work as intended.
You can alter the settings of your browser to erase one, more or all cookies or prevent automatic acceptance of cookies for the future.
