To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of this information, we have put in place integrated physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. If a website visitor makes a donation via credit card on our website, credit card transaction data is encrypted as required by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC).
In addition, donor data is protected through organization safeguards such as a password protected database for which actions in the database are logged by username. This information will not be disclosed to third parties for commercial purposes as Yamicare is committed to protecting our visitors' privacy.
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes.

Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged into the Site. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity, after you have logged in, as you move through our Site.
Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity, and to display advertising both on our Site and on third-party sites.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to our Site who disable cookies will be able to browse certain areas of the Site, but some features may not function.
