Personally Identifiable Information We Collect
We may collect the following Personally Identifiable Information from users who use our Web Site: name, employer name, e-mail address, telephone number, and address.
We use “cookies” to collect certain information from all users and website visitors. A cookie is a string of data our system sends to your computer and then uses to identify your computer when you return to our Web Site. Cookies give us usage data, like how often you visit, where you go at the site, and what you do.
Our Use of Personally Identifiable Information
We may use your Personally Identifiable Information to create a CRM entry or other account and to communicate with you. Additionally, we use that information to the extent necessary to enforce our Web Site terms of service and to prevent imminent harm to persons or property.
We use your information, including Personally Identifiable Information, to provide you with customer support, process transactions, respond to users’ requests, send newsletters and updates, send advertisements, seek your opinions and feedback, and connect users to WTS Paradigm, LLC, websites and/or services and to products and services of our partners and licensees.
We use user information, including Personally Identifiable Information, behavioral metrics, and other non-personally identifiable information to operate, provide, improve, and maintain our websites and services, to develop new products and services, to prevent abuse and fraud, to personalize content for you, and for other administrative and internal business purposes.
We use your information, including Personally Identifiable Information and any other information you submit directly or through passive means, to provide you with various ways to connect and view content (e.g., web content, text, drawings, and screen captures, media, tools, services and other products) with us and third parties.
We also may allow you to share links to content with users of various third party services (e.g., social networking, search and sharing services). When sharing links using one of these third party services, if you are not already logged in to the third party service, you may need to supply login credentials for it. If you are not a registered user of the third party service, you will need to sign up for it. You are supplying the registration information or login credentials for the third party service directly to that third party, and not to us. By using any of these third party services to share links to content, you permit us to access, use, and disclose any information relating to your account on each such third party service (such as your user name and profile information) that is available to us through the third party service, including through its application programming interface (“API”) pursuant to this Policy.
Protection of Personally Identifiable Information
We take commercially reasonable measures, including the implementation and maintenance of physical, electronic, and managerial procedures, in an effort to assure the security, integrity, and accuracy of all Personally Identifiable Information that we collect. Our efforts include procedures designed to avoid unauthorized access, alteration, misuse or disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information. Unfortunately, even with these measures, we cannot guarantee the security of Personally Identifiable Information. By using our Web Site, you acknowledge and agree that we make no such guarantee, and that you use our Web Site at your own risk.
If we learn of a security systems breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using our Web Site and/or services covered by this Policy and providing Personally Identifiable Information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your account information and usage.
Contractor and Other Third Party Access to Personally Identifiable Information
We may provide Personally Identifiable Information to third parties for their use in performing internal business functions (e.g., customer service, newsletter and mailing services, maintenance, security, data analysis, email transmission, beta testing, or data hosting) on our behalf. Additionally, some third party service providers may collect information, including Personally Identifiable Information, on our behalf.
Whenever possible, we require such third-parties to only collect and use Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with this Policy, to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of such Personally Identifiable Information, and for no purpose other than providing us with our requested services.
Disclosure of Information
Information about our users, including Personally Identifiable Information, may be disclosed as part of any bankruptcy, merger, sale, transfer of company assets, acquisition, or similar transaction. In the event of such a transaction in which your Personally Identifiable Information would be transferred to a third party, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you. For example, we will post a notice of the transfer of Personally Identifiable Information on our web sites and/or services and, if we have your email address, we will send notice of the transfer of Personally Identifiable Information to that email address.
As noted above, we compile Web Site usage statistics from Google Analytics and data collected through cookies. We may publish those statistics or share them with third parties, but the usage statistics don’t include Personally Identifiable Information.
