Wydea LLC ("we," "us," or "our") is committed to protecting your privacy. This Website Privacy Statement ("Privacy Statement") sets forth our current privacy practices with regard to the information we collect when you or your computer interact with our website and any associated services (collectively, the "Service"). By accessing the Service, you (the "Member" or "you") acknowledge and agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement and freely consent to the information collection and use practices described in this Privacy Statement.
Related services and offerings with links from this website, including vendor sites, have their own privacy statements that can be viewed by clicking on the corresponding links within each respective website. Online merchants and others who participate in Wydea LLC services are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude towards consumer privacy. However, since we do not have direct control over the policies or practices of participating merchants and other third parties, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of those sites. We recommend and encourage that you always review the privacy policies of merchants and other third parties before you provide any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties.
We collect Personal Information and Anonymous Information from you when you visit our website or use our Service, when you send us information or communications, and/or when you enter into transactions in connection with our Service. "Personal Information" means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. "Anonymous Information" means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information; Anonymous Information does not permit the identification of individual persons. We collect Personal Information and Anonymous Information, as described below.
Web Server Logs
When you visit our website, we may track your Personal Information and Anonymous Information to administer the site and analyze its usage. Examples of Personal Information and Anonymous Information we may track include:
We store Personal Information such as your email address, name and locality only if you decide to send us such information by completing a survey, registering as a user on one of our sites, signing up for an e-mail subscription, providing feedback, or otherwise communicating with us. We collect this Personal Information to help us improve the content of our sites, customize the layout of our web pages, provide content to you, and to contact you for technical and support purposes.
We may collect Personal Information such as demographic and interest category information from people via surveys, volunteered information, suggestions from Members, and other means. Our Members may voluntarily provide Personal Information, including that regarding personal interests, geography, and demographics. The purpose of this data collection is to ensure we continue to understand the needs and wants of the Wydea.com community, and therefore can provide the most relevant information, guides, and content.
When you pay a fee to obtain products or services from the Service, we may collect certain Personal Information from you, including your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address, to process the transaction.
We may use clear gifs or other data files or identifiers to track Anonymous Information for statistical purposes to improve and develop the services we provide. Additionally, be aware that advertisers and partners may also use their own clear gifs and we do not control use of these by advertisers and partners and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are placed on a user's hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages.
Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Statement, we do not generally sell, trade, share, or rent the Personal Information collected from the Service to third parties. We may, however, share your Personal Information with:
We may disclose information you provide (including Personal Information) if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with legal process served on us; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of us or our users; or (3) act in an emergency to protect someone's safety.
Our Service is not directed to children under the age of 13. We assume paid products or services are paid for by adults or minors supervised by a parent or guardian. We respect the privacy of parents and children and are committed to complying with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA").
If a parent believes that his or her child has provided us with Personal Information, he or she can contact us via e-mail as listed below. We will promptly delete the information upon learning that it relates to a child under the age of 13.
We believe that parents should supervise their children's online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a child-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from otherwise disclosing online their name, address and other Personal Information without parental permission.
Wydea LLC has the discretion to occasionally update this Privacy Statement. When we do, we will also revise the updated date at the top of this Privacy page. If we make a material modification to this Privacy Statement, we will provide notice of such modification on the website. Such modifications will become effective seven (7) days after notice has been posted on the website. Your continued use of the Service constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Statement and any updates. Except as provided in this paragraph, this Privacy Statement may not be amended. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Statement to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect.
