Information Use

Our primary purpose in collecting Personal Information is to provide you with access to our sites and our services, and to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. By accessing our Website or our related sites or using any of our tools, you agree that we may use your Personal Information to:

  • Provide you other services requested by you as described when we collect the information.

Disclosure of Your Personal Information

Unless you provide us with clear consent to do so, we will not sell, license or share your Personal Information to other people or entities, so that they can advertise or market their products or services to you. We may combine your Personal Information with other similar information we collect and use it to improve and personalize our services, content and advertising.

We disclose Personal Information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, respond to claims that a listing or other content violates the rights of others, or protect anyone's rights, property, or safety. Such information will be disclosed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

We also share your Personal Information with:

  • Service providers under contract who help us with our business operations (such as Website operations);
  • Other third parties to whom you explicitly ask us to send your information (or about whom you are otherwise explicitly notified and to whom you consent when using a specific service);
  • Law enforcement, governmental agencies, or authorized third-parties, in response to a verified request relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other user to legal liability. In such events, we will disclose information relevant and necessary to the investigation or inquiry, such as name, city, state, ZIP code, telephone number, email address, IP address, fraud complaints, and anything else we may deem relevant to the investigation.

Non-Personal Information, Cookies & Log Files

We gather certain non-personal information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer our websites, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.

We track trends in users’ usage and volume statistics to create a more efficient and usable site, and to determine areas of the site that could be improved to enhance the user experience. Log files are used on the Website, and in any link to the Website from an email.

We use "cookies" (small data files placed within your computing device) on certain of pages to help analyze our web page flow; customize our services, content and advertising; measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety.

A few important things you should know about our use of these technologies are:

  • We offer certain features that are available only through the use of cookies;
  • We use cookies to help identify you and maintain your signed-in status;
  • Most cookies are "session cookies," meaning that they not stored on your hard drive, and are automatically deleted from our server memory at the end of a session;
  • You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although doing so may interfere with your use of some of our sites or services;
  • You may encounter cookies from third parties, known as service providers, that we have allowed on our site that assist us with various aspects of our web site operations and services;
  • You also may encounter cookies from third parties on certain pages of the sites that we do not control and have not authorized (for example, if you view a web page created by another user, there may be a cookie placed by that web page).

Security

Throughout this page, we use the term Personal Information, as defined above, to describe information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person. We do not consider Personal Information to include information that has been made anonymous so that it does not identify a specific user.

We store and process your Personal Information in a secure environment not available to the public. We protect your information using technical and administrative security measures to reduce the risks of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure and alteration. Some of the safeguards we use are firewalls and data encryption, physical access controls to our data centers, and information access authorization controls. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. Our Website contains various types of links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by WRCRF. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.
