privacy + security
By consenting to this privacy notice, you are giving us permission to process your personal data specifically for the purposes identified. Consent is required for Yakima to process both types of personal data, but it must be explicitly given. Where we are asking you for sensitive personal data, we will always tell you why and how the information will be used.
Why does Yakima need to collect and store personal data?
The information we collect is used to provide the requested service, improve your user experience with our websites, maintain and improve our products and services, and direct our marketing and business decisions. This information may include your name, email address, contact phone number, address and credit card details. In any event, we are committed to ensuring that the information we collect and use is appropriate for this purpose and does not constitute an invasion of your privacy.
Should you apply for a position with Yakima, we will need to collect personally identifiable information in order to complete our recruitment process.
Will Yakima share my personal data with anyone else?
We may pass your personal data on to third-party service providers contracted to Yakima in the course of dealing with you. Any third parties that we may share your data with are obliged to keep your details securely, and to use them only to fulfil the service they provide you on our behalf. When they no longer need your data to fulfil this service, they will dispose of the details in line with Yakima’s procedures. If we wish to pass your sensitive personal data onto a third party, we will only do so once we have obtained your consent, unless we are legally required to do otherwise.
How will Yakima use the personal data it collects about me?
Yakima will process (collect, store and use) the information you provide in a manner compatible with relevant privacy laws. We will endeavour to keep your information accurate and up to date, and not keep it for longer than is necessary. Yakima is required to retain information in accordance with the law, such as information needed for income tax and audit purposes. How long certain kinds of personal data should be kept may also be governed by specific business-sector requirements and agreed practices. Personal data may be held in addition to these periods depending on individual business needs.
Your information we use for marketing purposes will be kept with us until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive this information.
