There are many different ways you can benefit from connecting with us – to get knowledge, learn new skills, get opportunities and to meet new people. When you share information with us, for example by applying to one of our programs, we can make the operations of YSI even better – to give you more relevant opportunities or to help you connect with more people. As you apply to one of our programs, we want you to be clear how we're using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.
Information that we collect
- What information we collect and why we collect it.
- How we use that information.
- The choices we offer, including how to access and update information.
We collect information to provide better opportunities to all the people in the YSI network – from figuring out basic stuff like where you come from, to more complex things like which challenges in the world you see as most important.
We collect information in the following ways:
- Information you give us. For example, when you apply to a YSI program. When you do, we'll ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number, skills or opinions to store with your profile. If you want to take full advantage of the opportunities we offer, we might also ask you to create a publicly visible YSI Profile, which may include your name and skills. Another example is when you provide us with your email address to receive our newsletter, we collect your email address to deliver our newsletter to your email address.
- We may share your personal data with third parties and our affiliates for the above-mentioned purposes. In sharing your personal data with them, we endeavor to ensure that the third parties and our affiliates keep your personal data secure from unauthorised access, collection, use, disclosure, or similar risks and retain your personal data only for as long as they need your personal data to achieve the above-mentioned purposes.
- We do not engage into the business of selling any personal data to third parties.
How we use information that we collect
We use the information we collect from all of our Application Processes and interactions to provide and improve the program and to develop new opportunities for people in our network. We also use this information to offer you tailored information – like giving you relevant opportunities or network connections.
When you contact YSI, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing.
We may use your email address to inform you about our activities, such as letting you know about upcoming opportunities like for example E-cases or opportunities to apply for a YSI program in subsequent years.
We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general opinion of people in our network.
How long is your information stored in our database
All information provided by you is stored in our database for 36 months. You can at any time ask us to share the information we have about you with you, and also at any time, ask us to delete all the information we have. Before the end of the 36 month period, you will receive an email regarding further storage of your information.
