Information Collection and Use
We collect personal information when you register or join with WAOA, when you use WAOA products or services, when you visit WAOA website pages or the pages of certain WAOA advertisers, affiliates or publishers, and when you enter promotions or sweepstakes. WAOA may also combine information about you that we have with information that we obtain from advertisers or other companies.
When you register or join, we ask for information such as your name, street address, email address, birth date, gender, zip code, occupation and/or industry. Once you register or join with WAOA and sign into our services, you are not anonymous to us.
WAOA also automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, WAOA cookie information, and the page you request. "Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by an Internet User's browser on the Internet User's hard drive.
WAOA uses information for the following general purposes: to customize the advertising and content you see, fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our customer services, contact you, conduct research, and to provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Additionally, WAOA displays targeted advertisements based on personal information. Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click on targeted ads meet their targeting criteria - for example, women ages 18-24 from a particular geographic area. WAOA does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad, you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad. WAOA advertisers include financial service providers (such as banks, insurance agents, stock brokers and mortgage lenders) and non-financial companies (such as stores, airlines, and software companies).
WAOA may set and access WAOA cookies on your computer. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to WAOA's cookies. WAOA may use web beacons to access WAOA cookies inside and outside of our network of web sites and in connection with WAOA products and services.
Confidentiality and Security
We limit access to the personal information about you within our company to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information in order to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect personal information about you. Your WAOA Account Information is password-protected. In certain areas WAOA uses industry-standard SSL encryption to protect data transmissions.
WAOA may from time to time update this policy. We will notify you about any significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending you a notice to the primary email address specified in your WAOA account or by placing a prominent notice on our site.
