We are committed to respecting and protecting your privacy. We provide certain services and opportunities for users of our website and members of our organization (“WACSS”). In order to provide these services, we require that you submit some personal information.

This policy will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and our customers needs. We understand the importance that Internet users place on privacy. This Privacy Policy describes how we use the personal information that is collected at this Site.

Please read the following before using this website or submitting any personal information to learn more about our Privacy Policy. By using this website, you accept the privacy practices contained in this Privacy Policy. You are encouraged to review the Privacy Policy whenever you visit this Site to make sure you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.

Information Gathered and How We Use It

When you register to become a member of one of our Sites either by direct signup, purchasing one of our products, providing feedback, or contacting us in any way, we are collecting information from you. This information is necessary to communicate with you, to fulfil your requests regarding information and products, to provide you with the products you have purchased, and to contact you about your membership or our other products. Some of our websites may also offer forums, please be advised that information posted in these venues becomes public knowledge.

  • When you order online, your name, email address, postal address and credit card details are recorded. This information allows us to process and complete your orders successfully. We do not keep credit card details on our system, ensuring your personal information is protected.
  • When you enter your details on this Site, your email address is stored in our database. This allows us to inform you about new services and product offers.
  • We may also use the information we collect to tell you about important changes to the website, new services and special offers you may find interesting.
  • You may notify us at any time if you do not wish to receive these offers by unsubscribing us at the link provided at the bottom of each email to you.

Information Sharing

We will not sell, rent, or share your personally identifiable information with others, unless we have your permission or are required to do so by law. We will not share aggregate data with our sponsors, members or other parties.

WACSS may provide statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third-party vendors. These statistics do not include any personally identifiable information such as your name and address.

Commitment to Data Security

All information collected from you is stored in a technically and physically secure environment. We use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, and we do everything we can to protect user information offline. Unfortunately, no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we take reasonable measures to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of the information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

Use of Contractors

We may retain the service of outside contractors to perform services on our behalf (for example, to help provide technical support services or deliver new products or services). At times, we must disclose relevant personally identifiable information about you to our contractors so they may provide these specific services for us. We require our contractors to keep this information confidential and to only use the information on our behalf.

Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Website, new services, and special offers we think you will find valuable.

Cookies

Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilises a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, What Are Cookies?) and web server log files to collect information about how our website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited just before and just after our website.

As you visit and browse our website, the Site uses cookies to differentiate you from other users. Cookies, in conjunction with our web server log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and which parts of the Site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback to constantly improve our website and better serve our clients. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not intentionally store any personal information that your browser provided to us in your cookies.

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Browsers are usually set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our Site will not function as effectively when viewed by the users. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses.

Bulletin Boards and Chat Areas

Guests of the Site are solely responsible for the content of messages they post on WACSS’s forums, such as chat rooms and bulletin boards. Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, e-mail address, phone number) on the bulletin boards or in the chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other people. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances. Please take care when using these features.

Choice/Opt-Out: The Site may provide you the opportunity to opt-in to receive communications from us at the point where we request information about you. You always have the option of removing your name from any e-mail list in order to discontinue any such future communications. In order to ensure immediate removal from any list, please follow the specific instructions set forth within the communications you receive from WACSS which you no longer wish to receive. If you are unsuccessful in completing the instructions specified in any such communication, please e-mail us at admin@wachildsafetyservices.com including a copy of the undesired email attached to the request, and state you wish to be removed from the mailing list.

IP Addresses

IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as traffic data so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you.

Links to Third Party Websites

Our service may contain links to other websites and software. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these websites or software. Often links to other websites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our website. Please visit the privacy policies of these third party sites in order to understand their privacy and information collection practices.

Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information

We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights. We may also disclose account information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms of Service or to protect the safety of our users and the Public.

Acquisition or Changes in Ownership

In the event that the website (or a substantial portion of its assets) is acquired, your information would be considered part of those assets and may be part of those assets that are transferred.

A Special Note About Children

We take children’s privacy very seriously. Children are not eligible to use our services unsupervised and we ask that children (under the age of 16) do not submit any personal information to us. If you are a minor, you can use this service only in conjunction with permission and guidance from your parents or guardians. If your minor child has provided us with personally identifiable information, you may contact us using our Contact Us Page if you want this information deleted from our records. We will make all reasonable efforts to remove your child’s information from the database that stores the information.

WACSS nonetheless encourages parents to go online with their kids. Here are a few tips to help make a child’s online experience safer:

  1. Teach kids never to give personal information, unless supervised by a parent or responsible adult. Includes name, address, phone, school, etc.
  2. Know the sites your kids are visiting and which sites are appropriate.
  3. Look for Website privacy policies. Know how your child’s information is treated.
  4. Check out the FTC’s site for more tips on protecting children’s privacy online

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy at any time with or without notice. It is your responsibility to check this page for any notices of change.

Note To California Residents

If you live in the State of California, under the California Civil Code, you have the right to request that companies who conduct business in California provide you with a list of all third parties to which WACSS has disclosed Personal Information during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes.

Alternatively, the law provides that if a company has a Privacy Policy that gives either an opt-out (often referred to as “unsubscribe”) or opt-in choice for use of your Personal Information by third parties (such as advertisers or affiliated companies) for marketing purposes, that WACSS may instead provide you with information on how to exercise your disclosure choice options.

This Site qualifies for the alternative option; it has a comprehensive Privacy Policy and provides you with details on how you may either opt-out or opt-in to the use of your Personal Information by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received your Personal Information for marketing purposes during the preceding year.

If you are a California resident and want to request information about how to exercise your third party disclosure choices, you may contact us via our Contact Us Page. For all requests, please include your name, street address, city, state, and zip code. Please include your zip code for our own record keeping.
