Young Advisors follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information. We utilise third parties including Squarespace & Google Analytics for this purpose.
Like any other website, Young Advisors uses ‘cookies’. These cookies are used to store information (no they’re not the tasty kind!) including visitors’ preferences, and the pages on the website that the visitor accessed or visited. The information is used to optimize the users’ experience by customizing our web page content based on visitors’ browser type and/or other information. Cookies help make your experience as (hopefully) awesome as us, but if you’d like to opt out, select ‘No’ on the pop-up!

Another part of our priority is adding protection for children while using the internet. We encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity. Being a youth centered charity, we understand and take very seriously matters of safeguarding.
Young Advisors does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If you think that your child provided this kind of information on our website, we strongly encourage you to contact us immediately and we will do our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records. Communication channels provided on the website are monitored by, safeguarding trained and DBS holding, Young Advisor staff and we only allow communication from young people aged 13 up.
