We are committed to taking reasonable steps to ensure the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put into place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help safeguard and secure the information we collect online. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and us or information stored on the Site or our servers, will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers and your use of the site demonstrates your assumption of this risk. Our database servers are hosted on the Amazon Web Services cloud within the United States. All of our database servers are isolated from the public Internet via Amazon’s Virtual Private Cloud 2, and access to our servers is controlled under strict security protocols.Webflow is certified under the Privacy Shield 1 program, which creates a legal framework for transferring the data of EU/Swiss subjects outside of Europe. They provide more detail about this in the International Transfers section of their EU & Swiss Privacy Policy 1. Form submissions are sent securely from a Site visitor’s browser to Webflow’s servers over HTTPS. All form submission data is stored in an encrypted database. They store the IP address associated with that form submission to prevent brute-force hacking submissions. For our annual Holiday Card and other occasional mailings, we usually use Mail Chimp and/or Paperless Post, both mail services with stellar performance and security records. Every group mailing we send has an easy opt-out option at the bottom that can remove you from further mailings, if that’s your preference. As many of our friends and partners are in the EU, we’re in the process of ensuring we’re GDPR compliant.

If a child under 18 submits personal information to Young Brands and we learn that the personal information is the information of a child under 18, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible.  If you believe that we might have any personal information from a child under 18, please contact us here and send a request marked “Privacy – Urgent” if you’d like the information submitted by the child to be deleted from our database.
