Personal information collection

We may collect personal information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit our site, respond to a survey, fill out a form, make a purchase, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our Site. Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, mailing address, email address, phone number and other personal contact details (“Personal Information”). Users may, however, visit our Site anonymously.

Non-personal information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Users’ means of connection to our Site, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information.

Web browser cookies

Our Site may use "cookies" to enhance User experience. A User's web browser places cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. Users may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert them when cookies are being sent. If they do so, note that some parts of the Site may not function properly.

How we protect your information

We adopt appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect the security of your Personal Information against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, alteration, or disclosure.

Sharing your personal information

We may share your Personal Information with third parties to provide you with products or services that may be of interest to you. When we do so, we may share, rent, or sell your name and/or mailing address. With the exception of vendors providing hosting, database management, and development services related to the operation of this Site, we do not share, rent, or sell your email address.

We may occasionally send you offers on behalf of third parties or promote such offers on our Site. If you do accept a third party offer or request additional information, the third party may collect other personal information directly from you. Once a third party has your personal information, it is governed by the third party’s privacy policy. We also may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any Personal Information regarding visitors and users with our business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers for the purposes outlined above.

Third party websites

The privacy practices described in this Privacy Policy are for our Site only. Our Site may contain links to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties. WOCN® Society is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other sites.

Our Site is hosted on web servers in the United States. If you are located in a non-U.S. jurisdiction, for example, in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), you agree that by providing your Personal Information, you consent to the transfer of such information to the United States, a jurisdiction that may not provide an equivalent level of data protection to the laws in your home country.
