Privacy Policy

Internet Yetu Organization ("Internet Yetu") operates internetyetu.org and may operate other websites. It is Internet Yetu's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites as per GDPR.  

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Internet Yetu collects non-personally-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 visitor request. Internet Yetu's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Internet Yetu's visitors use its website. From time to time, Internet Yetu may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Internet Yetu also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on internetyetu.org blogs/sites. Internet Yetu only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Internet Yetu's websites choose to interact with Internet Yetu in ways that require Internet Yetu to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Internet Yetu gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up/subscribe at internetyetu.org to provide a username and email address.  In each case, Internet Yetu collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Internet Yetu. Internet Yetu does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Aggregated Statistics

Internet Yetu may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Internet Yetu may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Internet Yetu does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Internet Yetu discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Internet Yetu's behalf or to provide services available at Internet Yetu's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Internet Yetu's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Internet Yetu will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Internet Yetu discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Internet Yetu believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Internet Yetu, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Internet Yetu website and have supplied your email address, Internet Yetu may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Internet Yetu and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Internet Yetu takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Personal Data Request

General Data Protection Regulation as of May 25th, grants users of this website the Right to data portability. You can read the comprehensive article by the European Union here . To request or remove your personal data from Internet Yetu, click here

Cookies

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. Internet Yetu uses cookies to help Internet Yetu identify and track visitors, their usage of Internet Yetu website, and their website access preferences. Internet Yetu visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Internet Yetu's websites, with the drawback that certain features of Internet Yetu's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Internet Yetu, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Internet Yetu goes out of business or enters 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 Internet Yetu may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Internet Yetu and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Internet Yetu may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Internet Yetu's sole discretion. Internet Yetu encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a internetyetu.org account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
