We collect this information to provide you with products or services, personalize your experience, respond to your queries, administer website services, and improve our offerings. We may also use your information for internal record keeping, compliance with laws and regulations, and for specific purposes that we notify you of at the time of collection.


Photographs and Videos Consent

YSAR recognizes the value of photographs and videos showcasing students participating in YSAR activities for marketing and advertising purposes. During the application and interview process, parents and students are required to sign a consent form granting permission for YSAR to use photographs and videos that may include their image in marketing and advertising materials. We respect the privacy of our students and their families and ensure that the use of such media is conducted in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.


Online Advertising, Re-Marketing, and Third-Party Tracking

We may use platforms such as Canvas LMS, Instagram, TikTok, Linkedin and Facebook for online advertising and re-marketing activities. We also use cookies and analytics tools to enhance website functionality, authenticate users, and collect information about website usage. These practices help us raise awareness of our services, products, and events.


Data Retention Policy

YSAR has implemented a data retention policy to protect individual privacy. This policy details our data collection and destruction practices. We prioritize minimizing the retention of personal information to ensure the security and confidentiality of individuals. Any personal information collected is securely stored and retained only for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, or as required by law.


Data Security Measures

YSAR is committed to the responsible handling of personal information and takes appropriate measures to ensure its confidentiality, integrity, and security.

Our platforms and website may contain links to third-party websites, and we may use third-party providers for various services.
