Like most website operators, WhatIWear collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. WhatIWear’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how WhatIWear’s visitors use its website. From time to time, WhatIWear may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. WhatIWear also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. WhatIWear only discloses user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to WhatIWear’s websites choose to interact with WhatIWear in ways that require WhatIWear to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that WhatIWear gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at WhatIWear to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with WhatIWear – by purchasing items from WhatIWear, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, WhatIWear collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with WhatIWear. WhatIWear does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
WhatIWear may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. WhatIWear may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, WhatIWear does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
WhatIWear discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, affiliated companies and organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on WhatIWear’s behalf or to provide services available at WhatIWear’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, affiliated companies and organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using WhatIWear’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. WhatIWear will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, WhatIWear discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when WhatIWear believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of WhatIWear, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of WhatIWear and have supplied your email address, WhatIWear may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with WhatIWear and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. WhatIWear takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If WhatIWear, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that WhatIWear goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of WhatIWear may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
