This Policy describes the information that we gather from you through Wikibuy, how we use and disclose such information, and the steps we take to protect such information. By using Wikibuy, you consent to the privacy practices described in this Policy. This Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the Wikibuy Terms of Service.
Information We Collect Through Wikibuy. Wikibuy is a tool that allows you to share purchase information with us—including pricing information, coupon information, and product related information—that we will collect in order to provide you with more useful pricing information and help you buy items at a lower price when available. In order to do that, we may collect information including:
Cookies and Automatically Collected Information. When you use Wikibuy, we may send one or more cookies – small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your device. Please note that if you delete, or choose not to accept, cookies from the Service, you may not be able to utilize the features of the Service to their fullest potential. We may also automatically record certain information from your device by using various types of technology, including “clear gifs" or “web beacons.” This automatically collected information may include your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, web pages or sites that you visit, the content you view or interact with on the Service, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the Service. We also may use these technologies to collect information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message. This information is gathered from all users, and may be connected with other information about you.
Location Information. We may obtain information about your physical location, such as by use of GPS and other geolocation features in your device, when you provide us with location information (such as an address in connection with shipping goods), or by inference from other information we collect (for example, your IP address indicates the general geographic region from which you are connecting to the Internet).
Information from Other Sources. We may obtain information from third parties and sources outside of Wikibuy, such as our partners, affiliates, and advertisers.
How We Use the Information We Collect. We use information collected through or by Wikibuy in various ways to provide the Service and operate our business, including the following:
We use the information that we collect through Wikibuy to operate, maintain, enhance and provide all features of the Service, to provide services and information that you request, to respond to comments and questions and otherwise to provide support to users, and to process and deliver entries and rewards in connection with promotions that may be offered from time to time on the Service.
We use the information that we collect on the Service to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our users, to improve Wikibuy, and to develop new products, services, features, and functionality.
We may use your email address or other information we collect to contact you for administrative purposes such as customer service or to send communications, including updates on promotions and events, relating to products and services offered by us and by third parties we work with. Generally, you have the ability to opt out of receiving promotional communications as described below under “Your Choices.”
When We Disclose Information. Except as described in this Policy, we will not disclose your information that we collect through Wikibuy to third parties without your consent. We may disclose information to third parties if you consent to us doing so, as well as in the following circumstances:
Any information that you voluntarily choose to include in a publicly accessible area of the Service will be available to anyone who has access to that content, including other users.
We work with third party service providers to provide website, application development, hosting, maintenance, and other services for us. These third parties may have access to or process your information as part of providing those services for us. Generally, we limit the information provided to these service providers to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions, and we require them to agree to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws, in response to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena or warrant, or to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement or other governmental agencies.
We also reserve the right to disclose your information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to (i) take precautions against liability, (ii) protect ourselves or others from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses or activity, (iii) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, (iv) protect the security or integrity of Wikibuy and any facilities or equipment used to make Wikibuy available, or (v) protect our property or other legal rights (including, but not limited to, enforcement of our agreements), or the rights, property, or safety of others.
Information about our users may be disclosed and otherwise transferred to an acquirer, successor, or assignee as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of assets, or similar transaction, or in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets.
We may make certain aggregated, automatically-collected, or otherwise non-personal information available to the public or to third parties for various purposes, including (i) compliance with various reporting obligations; (ii) for business or marketing purposes; or (iii) to assist third parties in understanding our users’ interests, habits, and usage patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality available through Wikibuy.
You may, of course, decline to share certain information with us, in which case we may not be able to provide to you some of Wikibuy’s features and functionality. If you wish to access or amend any other personal information we hold about you, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that while any changes you make will be reflected in active user databases within a reasonable period of time, we may retain all information you submit for backups, archiving, prevention of fraud and abuse, analytics, satisfaction of legal obligations, or where we otherwise reasonably believe that we have a legitimate reason to do so.
If you receive commercial email from us, you may unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions contained within the email. You may also opt out from receiving commercial email from us by sending your request to us by email at email@example.com. We may allow you to view and modify settings relating to the nature and frequency of promotional communications that you receive from us in user account functionality on the Service. Please be aware that if you opt out of receiving commercial email from us or otherwise modify the nature or frequency of promotional communications you receive from us, it may take up to ten business days for us to process your request. Additionally, even after you opt out from receiving commercial messages from us, you will continue to receive administrative messages from us regarding Wikibuy.
At this time, we do not respond to automated signals regarding tracking mechanisms, including “do not track” signals. However, your browser may allow you change settings relating to cookies or similar technologies. Please be aware that blocking cookies or other similar technologies may prevent you from using the Service to its fullest extent, including many of the personalized features available through Wikibuy.
We use Google Analytics to collect and process certain analytics data; Google provides some additional privacy options described at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. We also use Mixpanel to collect and process certain analytics data; Mixpanel provides some additional privacy options (including an opt-out link) described at https://mixpanel.com/privacy/.
We may provide features or links to websites and services provided by third parties. Any information you provide on third-party sites or services is provided directly to the operators of such services and is subject to those operators’ policies, if any, governing privacy and security, even if accessed through the Service. We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of third-party sites or services to which links or access are provided through the Service. We encourage you to learn about third parties’ privacy and security policies before providing them with information.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. Our Site is a general audience site not directed to children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without obtaining parental consent.
We use certain physical, managerial, and technical safeguards that are designed to improve the integrity and security of information that we collect and maintain. Please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot and do not guarantee that your information will not be accessed, viewed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our safeguards.
The Service is hosted in the United States and is intended for visitors located within the United States. If you choose to use Wikibuy from the European Union or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, then please note that you are transferring your personal information outside of those regions to the United States for storage and processing. Also, we may transfer your data from the U.S. to other countries or regions in connection with storage and processing of data, fulfilling your requests, and operating Wikibuy. By providing any information, including personal information, on or to Wikibuy, you consent to such transfer, storage, and processing.
