Welcome to YardandGroom. YardandGroom is firmly committed to protecting the privacy and security of its members and users of our site. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998).

Information Collection and Use

Registration -- During registration, a user is required to provide certain categories of information, such as name, age, address, nationality, telephone number, e-mail address and password, occupation, prior work history, job related skills and other job search related information. YardandGroom encourages its users to provide all of these fields of information so that users may maximise the effectiveness of the job search and candidate matching services. We only collect personal information that you choose to provide voluntarily when registering with the YardandGroom site.

Passive Collection of Information -- In addition to the information that you actively provide to YardandGroom by methods such as completing the registration form, YardandGroom collects information about how you interact with our site. YardandGroom collects passive information such as, but not limited to, your IP address, which type of browser you are using, where you go on our site, and how long you stay on any part of our site. Passive information does not identify you to YardandGroom by name, and YardandGroom does not link your IP address to your personally identifiable information.

Use of Information

The information that you supply to YardandGroom enables us to provide job search and candidate matching services. Your registration information is made available on the YardandGroom website to either employer or applicants that are seeking a working relationship with you. The registration information may also be used to enable us to process, validate and verify paid memberships. In addition, YardandGroom utilises passive information to learn more about how you interact with our site. This passive information may be combined with your other information for purposes such as testing and improving your experience at our site and the compilation of broad aggregate demographic data and related usage information for internal purposes and for disclosure to third parties such as advertisers and content partners. This aggregate passive information does not contain any personal information that can identify any individual user.

Contacting a yard -- When contacting a yard you respond directly to the employer and this is considered confidential information. Under NO circumstances does YardandGroom publicise your confidential response to any particular employer.

Contacting an applicant -- When contacting an applicant you respond directly to the applicant and this is considered confidential information. Under NO circumstances does YardandGroom publicise your confidential response to any particular applicant.

Sharing of Information

YardandGroom does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies except to provide products or services you've requested, when we have your permission.

Control of Your Password

You may not disclose your password to any third parties or share it with any third parties. If, despite the foregoing, you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personally identifiable information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password.

Cookies

Cookies are small text files that our site can send to your browser for storage on your computer, mobile phone or tablet. Cookies can make your use of our site easier by saving your status and preferences upon visits to our site. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but you may be able to change the settings to refuse cookies or to be alerted when cookies are being sent. We use cookies for two purposes: (1) to enable YardandGroom to customise information for certain segments of its customer base; and (2) in some instances, to associate you with your account.

Although rejection of cookies will not interfere with your ability to interact with most of our site, you will need to accept cookies in order to sign-in, register, search our database and use certain interactive services on the site.

While the above should have explained how cookies benefit you, if you still wish to disable cookies you can do this from within your browser, by following these instructions.
