Privacy Policy

Introduction

This Privacy Policy governs the privacy practices of Wiland.com and the services, features, and functions available through it (collectively, the Site). This policy operates together with our Terms of Use, our Online Behavioral Advertising Policy, and the Copyright Infringement Policy (collectively, the Terms and Policies) to insure that we obey the law and the self-regulatory programs we have joined, inform you of those activities that might affect you, and, very importantly, help you understand how we protect you and your information. Together these documents describe the relationship between you and the Site.

There are a number of ways that visitors to the Site make use of it. Some visitors will register at the site and contribute content to it, while others will simply come to the Site to learn about our company. Your use impacts what information about you we collect and how we use it.

We care about you and your privacy. The Site does not collect, accept, or store sensitive information such as: Social Security Numbers, driver’s license numbers or records, banking information, credit card numbers, criminal records, doctor or hospital records, or children’s information.

How We Use Your Information

Above all, we use the information you provide us in a way consistent with the manner in which we collect it, which we do in a variety of ways. When you register, we collect information from you in order to uniquely identify you on the Site and adjust your user experience accordingly. When you complete your profile, that information will be available to other visitors to the Site if you contribute content here, which we encourage you to do. This information helps build a sense of community at the Site, and we have found that the greater the sense of community at a website, the better the experience is for everyone.

Wiland.com is a good source of industry information and best practice guides. To that end, we offer a number of white papers that visitors can download. When you download a white paper, you will need to complete a form requesting your contact information. This is a common practice. We use the information you provide to contact you about our products and services. The information that you provide also guides us in understanding your needs and it helps to identify who among our staff can best respond to you.

Secondarily, we use the information that you provide us to identify you online on this Site and others. When we do this, we use anonymized versions of your information, never putting your personally identifiable information (PII) at risk. We may allow trusted third parties access to some of this anonymous information in order to facilitate this, but we have agreements with these third parties that they will not otherwise use the information or disclose it to other parties. You can read more about how we do this below in the section Cookies & Other Information Storage Technologies and on our Wiland Advertising Choices page.

There are a few significant exceptions to this secondary use and they include the Privacy Complaint form, the consumer choice opt-out form, and the forms related to our Copyright Infringement Policy. We never use the information that we collect on those forms for any purpose other than to manage your explicit requests. We do not share information received in this way with any other party unless required by law.

Finally, we use some of the information we collect to learn more about our own Site and how it is used. By analyzing traffic patterns on the Site and other clickstream data, we learn about what content people are connecting with. This can also help us identify problems with the website in general. Another value this adds is ensuring that we can meet the needs of our visitors. What devices and software are our visitors using to experience the Site? Answering this helps us better allocate development resources to their highest and best use.

Information We May Collect

When you use the Site, you give us permission to collect three different categories of information: personal information about you, information about how you use the site, and technical information about your devices and software. You should be aware that the Site may permit trusted third parties to collect information about your use of the Site, and your technical information.

Depending on your use of the Site, we may collect PII about you. This PII may include things like your name, phone number, and email address. We may also collect more general information about you, such as your job title, company, or the industry you work in. We collect this type of information in obvious ways through accurately-labeled forms and input fields.

Technical information is data about the hardware and software you use to interact with the Site. It includes the information that enables your web browser to communicate with our web servers. We may collect data about the software you are running to access the Site, which could include things like your operating system, browser version, or whether you have certain browser add-ons enabled. Technical information may also include the unique anonymous id of your mobile device or your computer’s IP address or the location data associated with those identifiers.

There are many tools you can use to limit the amount and type of device information websites collect. You could, for example, disable cookies in your browser or use an ad-blocking program. You are welcome to do so, and none of this will violate either this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use. But disabling or circumventing certain features may affect your experience at the Site.

Other Information

Parts of the Site contain content submitted by users. The Site cannot exercise complete control over what is submitted by every user. As such, it is possible that another user submits personal information about you with or without your consent.

If you believe that another user has violated your privacy by submitting content about you on this Site and you wish to have that content removed, please let us know. Clearly identify the offensive content along with your explicit request to take that content down and we will review your request and deal with the complaint as quickly as possible. We reserve the right to take down any material that we deem to violate a person’s privacy and any complaint that you may file helps us make a fair determination. We do not lightly curtail the expression of others, so we exercise discretion when deciding to remove such content. But vulgar, profane, or pornographic content is never appropriate. Similarly, the Site is not the place for personal attacks. We seek substantive content that is beneficial to other users.

Cookies & Other Information Storage Technology

These technologies help us manage user sessions and access to different areas of the site, help recognize or otherwise identify site visitors, personalize visitor experience, and aid us in understanding how people use the Site. Wiland.com does not put PII in cookies and we take commercially reasonable steps to require that third party service providers do not place PII in cookies.
