Hi there! This Privacy Notice explains how we, at Yaonology, process information about the visitors of our users’ websites in connection with the services we provide through WordPress.com, WooCommerce, and MailChimp. Read on!
Who’s Who and What This Privacy Notice Covers
Let’s talk first about who we are at Yaonology, what we do, and what this Privacy Notice covers. We are an algorithm trading strategy company. At our company, we use machine learning techniques and historical trading data and economic data to build trading algorithms to automatically generate sell & buy alerts for our customers. We also post articles and tutorials about algorithm trading under our blog page. Visitors to our sites can read published articles and interact with our Sites through features such as comment, like and share through social media.
Currently, we hold our website on the WordPress platform. We use WooCommerce for the check-out process and Mailchimp to collect email information to manage newsletter subscriptions.
WordPress.com offers the design, features, and support to bring a website to life.
- WooCommerce Services offers online sales service with fully customizable, open source e-Commerce platform built for WordPress.
- Mailchimp.com offers email marketing, ads, landing pages, and CRM tools to help customers grow business.
We put together this Privacy Notice to explains to their visitors how data is collected via the Sites and how that information is used and disclosed.

- Contact forms: When visitors fill in the information in our contact forms, we keep records of visitors’ name and email entered by visitors for future communication.
- Cookies: If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year. If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed. If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day. We use Google Analytics to collect information about visitors’ gender, demographic information, use of our Site, pages viewed, time spent on pages, links clicked, and conversion information. This information is used by Yaonology to analyze and track usage, determine the popularity of certain content, and deliver better services to our customers.
- Orders: If a visitor orders product (subscription for Yaonology’s products) through our Site, we may collect information to process that order, such as credit card and billing information, and billing address along to the recipient and calculating applicable taxes.
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.
How We Use Visitor Information
We use information about Site visitors in order to provide our service to our users, such as newsletter subscription. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Visitor name, email, billing information are stored in our database for transaction purposes.
How We Share Visitor Information
We may share information collected about Site visitors in the limited circumstances spelled out below:
- Subsidiaries, Employees, and Independent Contractors: We may disclose Site visitor information to our subsidiaries, our employees, and individuals who are the independent contractors that need to know the information in order to help us provide our services to our Users and their Sites, or to process the information on our behalf. We require our subsidiaries, employees, and independent contractors to follow this Privacy Notice for information about visitors that we share with them.
Third Party Vendors: We may share Site visitor information with third-party vendors who need to know this information in order to provide their services to us. This group includes vendors that help us provide our services to our Users and their Sites. We require vendors to agree to privacy commitments in order to share information with them.
- Legal Requests: We may disclose Site visitor information in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental requests. For more information on how we respond to requests for information, please see our Legal Guidelines.
- To Protect Rights, Property, and Others: We may disclose Site visitor information when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Yaonology, our Users, third parties, or the public at large. For example, if we have a good faith belief that there is an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury, we may disclose information related to the emergency without delay.
- Business Transfers: In connection with any merger, sale of company assets, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by another company, or in the unlikely event that Yaonology goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, Site visitor information would likely be one of the assets that are transferred or acquired by a third party. If any of these events were to happen, this Privacy Notice would continue to apply to Site visitor information and the party receiving this information may continue to use this information, but only consistent with this Privacy Notice.
- Information Shared Publicly: Information that visitors choose to make public is–you guessed it–disclosed publicly. That means, of course, that information like visitor comments and “likes” are all available to others, including information about the visitor that is displayed in connection with a comment or “like”.
How Long We Keep Visitor Information
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.
