Privacy Policy

Information from website browsers

If you're just browsing CheckWX.com, we collect the same basic information that most websites collect.  We use common internet technologies, such as cookies and web server logs.  This is information we collect from everyone, whether they have an account or not.

The information we collect about all visitors to our website includes the visitor’s browser type, language preference, referring site, additional websites requested, and the date and time of each visitor request.  We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.

Why do we collect this?

We collect this information to better understand how our website visitors use this site, and to monitor and protect the security of the website.

Information from users with accounts

If you create an account at CheckWX.com, we require some basic information at the time of account creation.  You will create your own user name and password, and we will ask you for a valid email account.  You also have the option to give us more information if you want to, and this may include "User Personal Information."

"User Personal Information" is any information about one of our users which could, alone or together with other information, personally identify him or her.  Information such as a user name and password, an email address, a real name, and a photograph are examples of "User Personal Information."

User Personal Information does not include aggregated, non-personally identifying information.  We may use aggregated, non-personally identifying information to operate, improve, and optimize our website and service.

Why do we collect this?

We need your User Personal Information to create your account, and to provide the services you request.

We use your User Personal Information, specifically your user email address, to identify you on CheckWX.com.

We will use your email address to communicate with you, if you've said that's okay, and only for the reasons you’ve said that’s okay.

We limit our use of your User Personal Information to the purposes listed in this Privacy Statement.  If we need to use your User Personal Information for other purposes, we will ask your permission first. You can always see what information we have, how we're using it, and what permissions you have given us in your user profile.

How we share the information we collect

We do not share, sell, rent, or trade User Personal Information with third parties for their commercial purposes.

We do not disclose User Personal Information outside of this site, except in the situations listed in this section or in the section below on Compelled Disclosure.

We may share User Personal Information if CheckWX.com is involved in a merger, sale, or acquisition.  If any such change of ownership happens, we will ensure that it is under terms that preserve the confidentiality of User Personal Information, and we will notify you on our website or by email before any transfer of your User Personal Information. The organization receiving any User Personal Information will have to honor any promises we have made in our Privacy Statement or in our Terms of Service.

Compelled Disclosure

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.

When you click on links on our site, they may direct you away from our site.  We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

Security

We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect User Personal Information from unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction; maintain data accuracy; and help ensure the appropriate use of User Personal Information.

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
