Cookies

A “cookie” is a piece of data stored on a user’s hard drive containing information about the user. As part of offering and providing personalized services, we may use cookies in an effort to save you time while on our Website.

  • Track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Website; and

IP Addresses

Every computer connected to the Internet is given an IP address. We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Website, track users’ movement and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information, and our web servers do not record the email addresses of our visitors.

Sharing

As a general rule, except as described in this privacy policy, we will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances (such as when we believe the law requires it). We may disclose or share aggregated demographic information with certain partners, affiliates and advertisers, however, except as described above, this is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person or company.

If such an acquisition occurs, the successor company would have access to the information maintained by WhattoDoMedia.com, including customer account information but would continue to be bound by this Privacy Policy unless and until it is amended as described herein.

Links

This Website may contain links to other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites, as this privacy policy applies solely to this Website. We encourage our users to remain vigilant when they leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.

Surveys

From time-to-time our Website may request information from users via surveys (e.g. within the Feedback/Testimonial section of the Website). Participation in these surveys, to the extent we run any, is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address) and demographic information (such as zip code, age level and income level). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of the Website.

Security

This Website takes numerous precautions to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the Website, such information is protected both on- and offline. [We encrypt certain sensitive information using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to ensure that our visitors’ information is safe as it is sent over the Internet to our server. SSL works by using a private key to encrypt data that is transferred over the SSL connection]. In addition, all of our users’ sensitive information is restricted in our offices. While WTDM employs commercially reasonable security measures to protect our data and seeks to partner with companies which do the same, we cannot absolutely guarantee the security of any data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and we therefore are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.
