Governing Law and Forum
WLE’s failure to insist upon strict enforcement of any provision of this agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right.
WLE recognizes that you may be concerned about our use and disclosure of your personal information. Your privacy is very important to us, and the following will inform you of the information that WLE may collect from you, and how it is used.
i. Information Collection.
WLE may collect non-personal information, such as a domain name and IP Address. The domain name and IP address reveals nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed the Website. WLE may also collect information about the type of Internet browser you are using, operating system, what brought you to the Website, as well as which of our web pages you have accessed.
Additionally, if you communicate with WLE regarding our Website or our services, WLE will collect any information that you provide to us in any such communication.
ii. Information Use.
WLE uses the collected information primarily for our own internal purposes, such as providing, maintaining, evaluating, and improving our services and Website, fulfilling requests for information, and providing customer support.
WLE follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
If WLE collects sensitive information (such as credit card or billing data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to WLE in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While WLE uses encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, WLE also protects your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which WLE stores personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
WLE uses “cookies” on this Website. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a Website visitor’s hard drive to help WLE improve the visitor’s access to the Website and identify repeat visitors to the Website. Cookies can also enable WLE to track and target the interests of its users to enhance the experience on the Website.
Cookies by themselves, cannot be used to determine the identity of any user. Your User-ID automatically identifies your computer–but not you–to our servers when you visit our Website. Unless you specifically tell us, WLE will never know who you are, even though we assign your computer a cookie.
WLE will not sell or otherwise provide the information we collect to outside third parties for the purpose of direct or indirect mass email marketing.
WLE will only disclose personal information and/or an IP address when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
- Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on our company;
- Protect and defend the rights or property of our Website and related properties; or
- Identify persons who may be violating the law, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing our Website or its related properties
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
