whyzz Publications LLC (“whyzz Publications”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through our compliance with this policy.
The Information We Collect, How We Collect It, and How We Use It
We collect two basic types of information from visitors to the Site:
We collect this information:
Personally Identifiable Information
Personal Information is accessible by our executives, our employees, our contractors, and our agents and subsidiaries to the extent reasonably necessary for these people to do their jobs related to the operation and management of the whyzz Site, App, and related services.
We will never intentionally share your Personal Information with any third party without first obtaining your permission to do so, except we may disclose personal information under the following circumstances:
Automatically Generated Information
Automatically generated information does not contain specific details about the identity of the person who provided it. Examples of automatically generated information include Internet protocol (IP) addresses and information collected via cookies (described below). When you use whyzz, we automatically gather this information. We use this information in the aggregate to monitor whyzz, to improve whyzz’s offerings, and for targeted advertising. Aggregated data are compiled into statistical and demographic information that we use, and may share with others, to show preferences of whyzz users in the aggregate, but not the preferences of any individual user. Shared aggregated data do not include a level of detail that will permit anyone to associate an individual user with the user’s usage or preferences.
Tracking Technologies and Advertising
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or other device that retain your information and preferences relative to your activities on whyzz. They are meant to enhance your experience on whyzz, and are used on whyzz primarily to recognize registered users who are logged on. For example, if you check the box on whyzz that says “Remember my username in the future,” we will send a cookie to your machine that does exactly that.
We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. In order to protect your information, whyzz Publications uses industry-standard security methods such as firewalls. However, as no computer or network-based product exists that can provide “perfect security,” we cannot guarantee that the steps we have taken to secure your information will prevent our systems from being compromised and your information from being disclosed.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of whyzz, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of whyzz like Community. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any whyzz users.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to whyzz. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on whyzz.
Accessing and Correcting Your Information
You can review and change your personal information by logging into whyzz and visiting your account profile.
