- At WBM we respect your right to privacy and we understand that, as a visitor to our Websites, you may prefer to control your own personal information preferences. For this reason, we may ask you to register or provide personal information and preferences when you visit certain areas of our Websites, request information, register for events, register new products or subscribe to newsletters. We will guard the personal information you share with us to ensure the content and services we provide on our Websites are always tailored to your current, designated preferences. Your privacy is extremely important to us, and your information is kept strictly confidential and will never be given to anyone outside our company.
- Sensitive Information. This refers to credit or debit card numbers, personal financial account information, Social Security numbers, passport numbers, driver's license numbers or similar personal identifiers, racial or ethnic origin, physical or mental health condition or information, or other employment, financial or health information. Our agreements with our customers prohibit them from using the Service to collect, manage, or process Sensitive Information. We do, of course, collect payment information from our paying customers. We use third party PCI-compliant service providers. Except for this, we do not collect Sensitive Information.
- Information About Children. The Websites are not intended for or targeted at children under 13, and we do not knowingly or intentionally collect information about children under 13. If you believe that we have collected information about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we may delete the information.
- If you do not want to receive non-system or non-administrative communications, you may "opt-out" of this preference at any time. As an option, you'll always have the flexibility to opt back in at anytime based on previous information or newly updated information.
- Collecting other personal information. When you browse our Websites, you are able to do so anonymously in many cases. Generally, we don't collect personal information when you browse, not even your email address, however, there may be some exceptions where we do ask you to register, and we may collect Navigational Information. Your browser does automatically tell us the type of computer and operating system you are using.
- Like most standard Web site servers our Websites uses log files and cookies. A "cookie” is a small line of text that is stored with your web browser for record-keeping purposes and helps WBM provide better service to you. Your browser has an option to accept, reject, or provide you with notice when a cookie is sent.
- Once a user enters our Websites, a cookie follows them through their click stream path collecting information including Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use only. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
- WBM may use the data collected from visitor cookies in aggregate form only and does not tie to them any personally identifiable information. Use of this information helps us better understand what users are seeking and learning on our Websites and helps us identify potential navigation issues.
- We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage the Website and Service by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages or in emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We may use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications.
- The Adobe Flash Player (and similar applications) use technology to remember settings, preferences and usage similar to browser cookies but these are managed through a different interface than the one provided by your Web browser. This technology creates locally stored objects that are often referred to as "Flash cookies." WBM does not use Flash or Flash cookies, however, embedded applications such as from 3rd Party services like YouTube® may employ flash cookies or similar techniques. WBM does not have access or control over our customers' Flash cookies, but you may access your Flash management tools from Adobe's web site directly. Similarly, our customers may create pages using the WBM Service that use technology from tracking utility companies, such as cookies and web beacons. The use of these technologies by our customers is not covered by our privacy statement. We do not have access or control over these third party tracking technologies.
- Anti-Spam Policy. The Service does not have the capability to send email. If our customers use a 3rd Party service in conjunction with the Service, we require our customers to conform to industry best practices regarding such communications. Our Acceptable Use Policy, at (http://whichboxmedia.com/acceptable-use-policy), applies to us and to our customers and, among other things, prohibits sending unsolicited commercial email in violation of applicable laws, and requires the inclusion in every email sent using the Service of an "opt-out" mechanism and other required information. We require all of our customers to agree to adhere to the Acceptable Use Policy at all times.
- Single Sign-On. We may offer Single Sign-On options to allow you to log in to our site using a Single Sign-on (SSO) service like your Google account. This service will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal information with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign up form. This option may require you to connect your social media accounts to your profile here.
- How we protect your personal information:
- WBM will always protect the personal information that you share with us. WBM stores information internally in a controlled, secure environment.
- If WBM requests general demographic information, this information is limited to reporting purposes only; users remain anonymous. Phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and postal addresses are never shared for demographic reports with outside entities.
- Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Websites, or as required by law.
- We will never sell your Personal Information to any third party.
- Community. In areas of the site(s) that are publically accessible, please keep in mind that if you directly disclose any information, this information may be collected and used by others. We will correct or delete any information you have posted on the Websites if you so request via email@example.com.
- Corporate Events. If we (or our assets) are acquired by another company, whether by merger, acquisition, bankruptcy or otherwise, that company would receive all information gathered by WBM on the Websites and the Service.
- Compelled Disclosure. We reserve the right to use or disclose your Personal Information if required by law or if we reasonably believe that use or disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or to comply with a law, court order, or legal process.
- Links. Our Websites may contain links to other Websites. WBM assumes no responsibility for the content or the privacy policies and practices of such Websites. WBM encourages you to read the privacy statements of these linked sites; their privacy practices may differ from ours.
