COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
NOTE: If we directly combine any non-PII gathered through passive means with PII, we treat the combined information as PII under this policy. Otherwise, we use information collected by passive means in aggregated or other non-personally identifiable forms.
CONSISTENT WITH THE FEDERAL CHILDREN'S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT OF 1998 (COPPA), WE WILL NEVER KNOWINGLY REQUEST PII FROM ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 13 WITHOUT REQUIRING PARENTAL CONSENT. ANY PERSON WHO PROVIDES HIS OR HER PII TO US THROUGH THE SERVICE SERVICES REPRESENTS THAT HE OR SHE IS 13 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER.
DISCLOSURE OF PII
The sharing practices described below only apply to information we collect from you on the Service—specifically for website-related purposes (e.g., User Profile, sign-in to vote, e-newsletters, online store purchases, periodic online customer surveys, User queries, etc.).
We may share your website-related information (including your personal contact information) as set forth below:
PROFILE DATA AND OTHER PII AVAILABLE TO OTHER USERS
Some features on the Service may allow you to post PII that is available to other Users of the service. For example, if you provide a description of a product, or post a vote, rating, or review regarding a third party or any products, that information will be made available to other Users who view that listing. (Additionally, any information that you make available in your profile will be available to other Users.) You include PII in any postings to the Service, and make PII available in your User Profile, at your sole risk. We cannot control the actions of other Users with whom you may choose to share PII, whether you share it on the Service or by other means (e.g., e-mail, telephone, SMS (text messages), IM, Skype, and physical address). Additionally, even after information posted on the Service is removed, caching and archiving services may have saved that information, and other Users or third parties may have copied or stored the information available on the Service. We cannot, and do not, warrant or guarantee that any PII that you provide on and in connection with the Service will not be accessed, viewed, used, or misappropriated by unauthorized persons.
THIRD-PARTY SITES AND SERVICES
The Service may contain links to third-party sites and services. Any links to third-party sites or services are provided for your convenience only, and we do not have control over the content or privacy and security practices and policies of such third-parties or other sites. Any PII that you provide to our data destination partners or to other third-parties is subject to those third-parties’ privacy practices and policies, not this Policy. We encourage you to learn about their privacy and security practices and policies before furnishing any PII to them.
Below, we strongly suggest that you familiarize yourself with some of the most prominent third-party services that are incorporated into the Service.

You may disconnect from a linked Social Networking Service at any time by visiting the “My Account” section of the Service.
We will not share any information about you collected on the Service with a linked Social Networking Service without your approval. This means that we will not post anything to your Facebook wall, Google account, or Twitter feed unless you give us specific permission to do so, and we will not contact your friends or followers at any time. We do not store or utilize the names of your friends or followers even if they are passed to us by a social sign-on service in the initial registration process.

INTERNATIONAL VISITORS AND CUSTOMERS
THIS SERVICE IS HOSTED IN THE UNITED STATES, AND WE PROVIDE OUR OTHER SERVICES FROM THE UNITED STATES. IF YOU USE OUR SERVICES FROM THE EUROPEAN UNION OR OTHER REGIONS WITH LAWS GOVERNING DATA COLLECTION AND USE THAT MAY DIFFER FROM U.S. LAW, PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU ARE TRANSFERRING YOUR PII TO THE UNITED STATES. THE UNITED STATES DOES NOT HAVE THE SAME DATA PROTECTION LAWS AS THE EU AND SOME OTHER REGIONS. BY PROVIDING YOUR PII, YOU CONSENT TO THE TRANSFER OF YOUR PII TO THE UNITED STATES AND THE USE OF YOUR PII, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS POLICY.
We use a variety of industry standard methods to keep the information you give us online confidential and secure. These measures include (among other things) the use of industry-standard encryption to protect sensitive information and activities, storage of your information on firewall-protected servers, and limiting access to your information to only those WDFLM officers, employees, and third-party administrators (agents or contractors) who have (a) “bona fide” need to know it to fulfill their purpose, (b) been trained in the proper handling of personally identifiable and sensitive customer information, and (c) expressly agreed to preserve the confidentiality of such information.
For specificity, you should note that, during any e-commerce transactions (namely checkout processes) with WDFLM, you will receive an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate with a minimum 256-bit encryption. Please be aware that e-mail communications are generally unencrypted; thus, we urge you not to transmit any credit card data via e-mail, as it is widely regarded as an unsecure means of electronic transmission. (WE WILL NEVER ASK FOR YOUR SENSITIVE INFORMATION (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, CREDIT CARD DATA) VIA EMAIL.)
INFORMATION RETENTION AND DISPOSAL
