Such data (“aggregate data”) is used for a number of purposes such as helping us understand

We reserve the right to use a third party to provide identity and information verification services
on our Website. Such third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable
information for any other purpose.
Personal information may be collected in a number of ways, such as when you sign-up for an

information when providing feedback to us. When registering for an account, you will be asked
to provide your contact information, your name and other personal information. Also, you may

user account profile functionality as well as forums on the Website. All such content that you

content or any liability for any claims arising out of such content.
When you use the Website, we may also collect certain information about your computer to
facilitate and evaluate your use of the Website and the Service. For example, we may log
environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system, referring or exit web pages,
and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer.

Protection of Personal Information
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the security,
confidentiality and integrity of your personal information. The personal information that you
provide online in connection with registering yourself as a user of the Website or Service is
protected in several ways. Access by you to such personal information is available through your
username and a password selected by you. To protect the confidentiality of such personal
information, you should not divulge your password to anyone. You are responsible for all uses of
the Website and Service by any person using your username and password. Please advise us
immediately if you believe your password has been compromised. In addition, your personal
information resides on servers or in areas of facilities that only selected personnel and
contractors can access. We take precautions to protect all data that you submit to the Website,
and thereby attempt to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is
transmitted to us. Please note that any information you submit by email may not be secure, so
please do not send any sensitive information or materials in or attached to any email to WOT.
We do not sell your personal information to anyone.
Children Under Age 13
We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13.
Any person between the ages of 13 and 17 must have parental consent to register with the
Website. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register with the Website. In the event that
we learn that we have collected personal information through the Website from a person under
age 13 or from someone between 13 and 17 without parental consent, we will delete that
information as soon as practical.
As a user, your profile must include your first name, last name, and connection to WOT. You
may also provide additional information about yourself including: pictures, resume, story about
WOT, current school, occupation, employment status, etc. We may occasionally use your name
and email address and/or cell phone number for text messages (if you have authorized that
notification method) to send you notifications from the Website and WOT.
Profile information is used by us primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you
access the Service and to be presented to others who view your profile page. Your first name and
connection to WOT will automatically be available in search results on and may be made
available to third party search engines. You can select the privacy of the other information you
We may also send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general
operation of the Website.
In order to improve our Service and the Website and provide more convenient, relevant
experiences to our users, we may use “cookies”, “web beacons”, and similar devices to track
your activities. A cookie is small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web
server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification
card and enables us to record your passwords, profile and preferences. A web beacon is a small
transparent “GIF” image that is embedded in an HTML page or email used to track when the
page or email has been viewed. A similar device may be used by which a product, service or
functionality may send data to a server when a set of user-initiated events occur (such as after
clicking a button on the Website or in an email). This device is similar to a cookie in that it
tracks your visit and the data can only be read by the server that receives the data. It is different
than a cookie in that it is not browser-based, may not function as an identification card and does
use of the Website, such as the number of downloads, pages visited and how many users we
receive daily, and while our web servers automatically log the IP/Internet address of your
computer, we do not generally use this information to identify you personally. However, if you
expressly provide consent for the Website to remember you when you log into your account, that
unique identifier will be stored on a cookie on your computer and that unique identifier will be
linked to your information. As a result, your navigation path around the Website and the Service
will be tracked by WOT for the purposes intended herein.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies and similar devices. You can set your browser
to notify you when you receive a cookie or similar device, giving you the chance to decide
whether or not to accept it, though this may preclude you from using the Website. To find out
more about cookies, including how to see which cookies have been set and how to manage and
delete them, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
Tracking/Do Not Track
When you visit a website (such as the WOT Website), your browser automatically shares certain
information with that website, such as your IP address and other device information. Some of
this information may also be sent to third-party content providers (for example: advertisers,
website analytic companies, etc.) that provide content on the website. Such sharing may allow
the website and/or content providers to track you over time and across multiple websites.
Today, many browsers offer Do Not Track plugins that allow you to express a preference that
you not be tracked, and that tell websites that you visit, by sending an electronic beacon, this
preference. At this time, WOT’s Website does not respond to Do Not Track beacons sent by
Sharing Information With Third Parties and Partners
We collect non-public personal information about you from the following sources: information
we receive from you during registration and information about your transactions with us.
Non-public, personally identifiable information about you may be disclosed without your
consent to our service providers for the purpose of performing services on the Website.
Specifically, we may use service providers and third parties to facilitate our business and
Website, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates
about WOT, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to offer an online job
application process, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In
connection with these business services and operations, our service providers may have access to
your non-public personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these specific
business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information,
we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that
information to the WOT-specified purposes. We restrict access to non-public personal
information to employees on a “need to know” basis only. We maintain physical, electronic, and
procedural safeguards to guard your non-public personal information. We may provide
aggregate, non-personally identifiable data about the usage of our services to third parties or
partner companies that we have joint marketing agreements with for such purposes as we deem,
in our sole discretion, to be appropriate. These arrangements give you the opportunity to receive
additional products or services from us or third parties. However, no non-public personal
information about you will be intentionally shared, disclosed or sold to any third party not
affiliated with us.
We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas
or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we
have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets
applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we
believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or
other illegal activity perpetrated through the WOT service or using the WOT name, or to prevent
imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers,
agents or government agencies.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted
industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission
and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic
storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to
protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We will communicate with you through e-mail and notices posted on this Website as well as
through text messages, if you agree to receive text message notifications (note that text
messaging and data rates and charges may apply). Such communications will relate to the
Website, your account, and/or WOT.

information, or to the privacy settings for your WOT account, at any time by logging into your

Opting-out. Even after you have consented to our collection and use of your personal
information, you may opt-out of having your personal data collected or used by us by contacting
us via one of the methods described above. Doing so, however, may make it unable for you to
utilize the Website and may result in us closing your account.
If you close your WOT account, we will remove your name and other personally identifiable
information from our publicly viewable data. We may retain certain data contributed by you if it
may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, or for legitimate business purposes, such as
analysis of aggregated, non-personally-identifiable data, account recovery, or if required by law.
