Privacy Policy


YTS International has created this Privacy and Personal Data Protection Policy in order to describe its policy and practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of your personal data. These data were obtained via this website, (hereafter the “Website”), based on a data collection form you wanted to fill in in our boutiques, via our Customer Service, via social networks, via our digital apps or at events. These data are used for our customer and prospect management in accordance with the rules defined in the French data protection law referred to as the “Loi Informatique et Libertés” of 6 January 1978, as amended, and Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data (hereafter the “GDPR”).

Article 1. Privacy policy

Because we respect your privacy, we have implemented procedures to ensure that your personal data are processed safely, securely and responsibly. The objective of this privacy policy is to explain our data collection practices and your rights. As we continue to develop and improve the services, we offer to take advantage of technological advances, this Privacy Policy may be amended at any time. The applicable Privacy Policy is the one that is in effect on the date you use this Website or the one in effect on the date we offer our services or send communications to you.

Article 2. Definition of the Data Controller

YTS International SAS is the data controller, as defined by the personal data protection regulations, in particular the French data protection law referred to as the “Loi Informatique et Libertés” of 6 January 1978, as amended, and the GDPR. YTS International SAS is a French anonymous company (société anonyme) registered with the Company Register of Nanterre under number 840 101 687. Its registered office is located at: 56, Rue de Sablonville – 92200 Neuilly sur Seine - France.

Article 3. The data we collect

“Personal data” means any information that identifies you directly or indirectly. The data collected may include the following:

  • last name,
  • first name,
  • address,
  • telephone number,
  • email address,
  • birthday,
  • password,
  • delivery and invoicing address,
  • product preferences,
  • purchases (in a boutique or online) and repairs,
  • gift occasions,
  • online browsing (on YTS International’s websites or social network pages),
  • queries via our Customer Service or Communication Department,
  • YTS International events you attend or any other point of contact.

i. In general, you may browse through our Website without providing any information that identifies you personally. However, we may ask you to provide personal information that identifies you in certain parts of the Website. In some cases, if you choose not to provide the information requested, you may not be able to access all the Website’s functionalities or pages. With regard to our Website, and if you accept, YTS International will create a database that compiles the data you provide in order to allow you to register and create a “user account”, to process and track your Order, and to communicate specific offers YTS International proposes.

When you visit our Website, our web server automatically collects anonymous data, such as connection logs and IP addresses. We may use the information collected automatically for a certain number of objectives, for example to improve our Website design, product assortment, customer service and special offers. YTS International may also retain copies of communications and correspondence between us to monitor customer relations.

ii. YTS International also offers you the opportunity to record one or more credit/bank cards (card number and expiry date, excluding the cryptogram) in order to facilitate your future use of our Website. The data thereby collected will be saved by a tokenization system supplied by our provider. Tokenization is a method to replace information on a credit card by a token, which has no extrinsic value and retains key card information without compromising the credit card’s security. The data thereby collected will be retained for three years, subject to the exercise of your rights in accordance with Article 9 of this Privacy Policy.

The retention period for credit/bank card data depends on the intended purpose:

  • For a single payment, the data will be retained until full payment or receipt of the good;
  • If the data are retained to facilitate future purchases, they may be retained up until consent is withdrawn and/or the expiry of the validity of the credit/bank card’s data;
  • If the data are retained to manage claims, they may be retained for a maximum period of 13 months following the debit date or 15 months for deferred payment cards.

iii. In its boutiques, YTS International may also offer to collect your personal data directly from you via a data collection form.

iiii. Regardless of the collection method, mandatory information is identified by an asterisk when you fill in the form. When optional data is collected, the potential consequences of failing to provide these data are indicated.

iiiii. With regard to a job application, the following information may be collected:

  • Name and contact information
  • Curriculum vitae and motivation letter

iiiiii. By creating an account on YTS International’s website, you confirm that you are of legal age.

Article 8. Security

The personal data provided on the Website are transmitted via a secure server that uses the “Secure Socket Layer” (SSL) encryption technology. When the URL’s “http” letters turn into “https”, the “s” indicates that you are in an SSL-secured zone. Your browser may then display a pop-up message indicating that you are about to enter a secure area. We undertake to process your personal data in accordance with high security standards. We therefore take physical, electronic and administrative measures to ensure the security and accuracy of personally identifiable information that we collect, in particular by limiting the number of individuals who have physical access to our servers and databases (notably, password protection to prevent unauthorized access). Our Website uses encryption technology, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to protect your personal data when they are transferred. The SSL system encrypts the information on your order, such as your name, address and bank card number. Our Customer Service also uses a secure private network.

You may, of course, disable the cookies and web beacons on your computer by selecting this option in your preferences or your browser's option menu.
