Privacy Policy

WRLWND acknowledges the importance of protecting the privacy of WRLWND users. The information we collect is used to improve the services we offer, to improve our website’s content, and to communicate with you, including contacting you regarding your account (if applicable) or with updates to our website or other marketing information. WRLWND approaches our communications on WRLWND Sites with respect for, and commitment to, protecting the privacy rights of our users, and with concern and respect for the different sensibilities of our users.

This Privacy Policy sets out how WRLWND collects, uses and safeguards users’ personal information. Our site contains links to third party sites which are not subject to this Privacy Policy. We recommend you read the privacy policy of any such sites you visit.
If you have questions concerning your personal information or any queries with regard to these practices, please contact questions@wrlwnd.com.

Information Collected: When you access our site and have not registered or subscribed to our services you access anonymously. Personal information such as your name, address, phone number or email address is not collected as you access. If you register with us, access our website from an email or other personalized communication sent to you, or provide us with personal information, you will allow us to identify you.

For both anonymous visitors and known visitors to our website, we use industry-standard analytic software to collect information such as your ISP, your browser type and version and your IP address. We may also derive the general geographic area associated with an IP address. We use “cookies” or similar technology to collect information about how this website is used, such as average time spent on this website, pages viewed, and information searched for, access times, response rates to online or email advertising and other relevant information about your online experience. If you are an anonymous visitor, the information in this paragraph does not personally identify you.

Consent

By using WRLWND, you are accepting the terms of this Privacy Statement. Whenever you submit information via this site, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of that information, personal or otherwise, as described in this Privacy Statement.

Information we Collect when you Register, Subscribe or Otherwise Identify Yourself: The types of information we may collect include your name, email and mailing address. Your information will be associated with a password you set personally. No one at WRLWND will ever ask you for your password. If you are asked for your password by another user on the site at any time, please notify a moderator at report@wrlwnd.com.

Personally Identifying Information

We are committed to providing you with an experience that respects and protects your personal privacy choices and concerns. Personally identifying information is collected by WRLWND only when you specifically and knowingly provide it.

Collection and Use of Personally Identifying Information

Beyond the site registration described previously, WRLWND collects and uses your personal information primarily for the purpose of providing you with the products and services you have requested from us, including the delivery of newsletters and related content and event registration confirmations, updates and other information related to WRLWND events and seminars.

The information we collect is also used to communicate with you about your account and to provide you with information related to other WRLWND services.

All emails sent to subscribers clearly identify the source of the email as WRLWND and/or its related sites.

Subscribers may change their preferences at any time online either through a link in a newsletter or by accessing their WRLWND account.

If you have indicated that you are interested in receiving offers or information from selected WRLWND sponsors or advertisers, your personal information would also be used by WRLWND to contact you or to send you email materials and other mailings on their behalf.

The information submitted by them is fully screened by WRLWND and must, in our judgement, be of value to our readers.

If you enter a contest or participate in other promotional activities offered by WRLWND, your personal information will be used to administer the promotion, including the use of your name and selected other information for the purposes of contacting, announcing and promoting the winners of the promotion.

WRLWND may also contact you from time to time to conduct research and surveys in our ongoing effort to improve our product and service offerings, or to invite your editorial comments for articles being developed for publication. You can contact our team through the Contact Us page.

WRLWND will not release your personal information to a third party without your authorization unless required to by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the edicts of the law or to comply with a legal process serviced on WRLWND sites.

WRLWND will only ask you to provide personal information that we need, when we need it. We will always explain why we need the information and what we intend to do with it.

We will seek your prior consent to the collection, use and disclosure of personally identifying information and you can refuse such consent. You may also withdraw your consent at a later time by giving us reasonable notice. We will notify you in advance of any change in our intent for the use or disclosure of your personally identifying information.

Your personal information will not be used for any other purpose without your consent.

Cookies used in registration

As part of the registration process we use a browser feature called a “cookie.” A cookie is a piece of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as a small text file. The cookie we send as part of the registration process allows the site to recognize that a visitor is a registered user and permit access to restricted sections of the site on future visits.

Disclosure

In order to effectively provide the products and services you have requested, WRLWND may share your personal information with selected third parties who act on our behalf as suppliers or service providers. Information provided to third parties in these circumstances may only be used for the stated purpose. It is our practice to require third party suppliers to handle information in a manner consistent with WRLWND’s policies.

In addition, the information collected to service your subscriptions is made available for review by the Audit Bureau of Circulation (ABC), an official auditing body for magazines. The auditors may also contact randomly selected subscribers in order to verify the publisher’s circulation statements.

Supplementing Information

From time to time we may supplement information you give us via our website with information we acquire from other sources, such as information to validate your address, or company information available through sources such as business directories. This is to help us maintain consistency and accuracy of the information we collect and to help us provide a better service.

Non-Personally Identifying Information Collected Automatically

Our web server logs information about visitors that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using, and the domain name of the website from which you linked to our site or advertisement.

Also, when we collect personal data from you in a transaction, we may extract some information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us: understand trends and patterns; improve the content and design of the WRLWND website; to enable our audit bureau to verify our claims of traffic to the site; and, to help advertisers and potential advertisers assess the suitability of the site for their advertising campaigns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level.

Information We May Place Automatically On Your Computer

When you access some sections of WRLWND Sites or advertisements, we may store some information on your computer, in the form of a “Cookie.” A cookie is a piece of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as a small text file. Cookies allow us to tailor the website content or advertisements to better match your interests and preferences. With most internet browsers, you can erase Cookies from your computer hard drive, block all Cookies, or receive a warning before a Cookie is stored. Please note, however, that blocking or disabling Cookies will limit your access to non-restricted content sections, and erasing cookies will require that you re-register if you wish to access content in restricted sections of the site.

Link To Non-WRLWND Websites

While WRLWND does not bear any responsibility for any actions or privacy policies of third parties we may link to.
This site contains links to other sites not owned or controlled by WRLWND. WRLWND is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

WRLWND Sites users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., username, email address) in discussion forums, such information could be collected and used by others that do not follow our strict privacy guidelines and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties. As such WRLWND strongly advises you never give out your email address on our comment or discussion boards.
