When you interact with the YouBookIn Website we strive to make that experience easy and meaningful. When you come to our Web site, our Web server may send a cookie to your computer. Cookies are files that Web browsers place on a computer's hard drive and are used to tell us whether customers and visitors have visited the Site previously.
Standing alone, cookies do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to YouBookIn, either by responding to a promotional offer or opening an account, you remain anonymous to YouBookIn. Cookies come in two flavors: session and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you've closed your browser or turned off your computer. They include such information as a unique identifier for your browser.
YouBookIn uses session cookies containing encrypted information to allow the system to uniquely identify you while you are logged in. This information allows YouBookIn to process your online transactions and requests. Session cookies help us make sure you are who you say you are after you've logged in and are required in order to use the YouBookIn application. YouBookIn uses persistent cookies, that only YouBookIn can read and use, to identify the fact that you are a YouBookIn customer or prior YouBookIn Website visitor (whatever the case may be). We are especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information stored in persistent cookies. For example, we do not store account numbers or passwords in persistent cookies. Users who disable their Web browsers' ability to accept cookies will be able to browse our Website but may not be able to successfully use our Service.

YouBookIn also implements an advanced security method based on dynamic data and encoded session identifications, and hosts the Site in a secure server environment that uses a firewall and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. Finally, YouBookIn provides unique user names and passwords that must be entered each time a customer logs on. These safeguards help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of Data.
