For the purposes of this Cookies Policy, “we”, “us” and “our” means Yakuto Limited, a company registered in the United Kingdom with its office located at 44-48 Paul Street, London, EC2A 4LB, United Kingdom.

We use cookies, log files, pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs, or similar files or technologies (“Cookies”) to collect and store the information we automatically collect about your device and use of the website http://www.yaku.to/ (“Website”) and any forums and services we offer through the Website or otherwise provided by us (all collectively referred to in this Policy as our “Services”). You can find out more about Cookies and how to control them in the information below.

1. What is a Cookie?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a certain web address. Cookies are then sent back to the originating web address on each subsequent visit, or to another web address that recognises that Cookie. Cookies are widely used in order to make the Services work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the Services operations teams.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Cookies may tell us, for example, whether you have used a Service before or whether you are a new user.

There are two broad categories of Cookies:

  • First party cookies, served directly by us to your device.
  • Third party cookies, which are served by a third party on our behalf.

Cookies can remain on your device for different periods of time. Some Cookies are 'session cookies', meaning that they exist only while your browser or the application is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser or application. Other Cookies are 'permanent cookies', meaning that they survive after your browser or application is closed. They can be used by a Service to recognise your device when you open and use that Service again.

2. How do we use Cookies?

We use Cookies to:

  • verify log-in information;
  • track traffic flow and patterns of travel in connection with a Service;
  • understand the total number of users of a Service on an ongoing basis and the types of devices;
  • monitor the performance of a Service and to continually improve it;
  • customise and enhance your online experience; and
  • provide customer service to you.

3. What types of Cookies do we use?

The types of Cookies used by us and our partners in connection with a Service can be classified into one of four categories, namely 'essential cookies', 'functionality cookies', 'analytics and performance cookies' and ' social media cookies'. We have set out some further information about each category, and the purposes of the Cookies we and third parties set in the following table.

Cookies necessary for essential services (first party permanent) These Cookies are essential to provide you with a Service and to use some of its features, such as to authenticate log-in, secure a Service and your information, and prevent fraudulent, criminal or other suspect activities. Without these Cookies, services you have asked for, like transactional pages and secure login accounts, would not be possible. Please see the instructions set out in 'How to control or delete Cookies' below.
Functionality Cookies (first and third party permanent) Functionality Cookies record information about choices you have made and allow us to tailor a Service to you. These Cookies mean that when you continue to use or come back to use a Service, we can provide you with our services as you have asked for them to be provided. For example, these Cookies allow us to:
  • show you when you are logged in; and
  • store your preferences (including language and marketing preferences)
Please see the instructions set out in 'How to control or delete Cookies' below
Performance / Analytics Cookies (third party session) We use performance/analytics Cookies to analyze how a Service is accessed, used, or is performing in order to provide you with a better user experience and to maintain, operate and continually improve a Service. For example, these Cookies allow us to:
  • better understand users of a Service so that we can improve how we present our content;
  • test different design ideas for particular features;
  • determine the number of unique users of a Service;
  • improve a Service by measuring any errors that occur; and
  • conduct research and diagnostics to improve product offerings

For example, we use Google Analytics on our Services to analyse users’ use and your current IP address. This information will be transmitted by Google to its servers in the US and other countries. On our behalf Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the Services. The IP address collected will not be associated with any other data held by Google.

Please also see the instructions set out in 'How to control or delete Cookies' below.
Social Media Cookies If you use a social media platform to log in to a Service, such third parties may set their own anonymous Cookies in order to track the use of their platform log-in API. Please see the instructions set out in 'How to control or delete Cookies' below.
