    WotsDoin Privacy Policy

    WotsDoin Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how we collect and use the personal information you decide to share, and help you make informed decisions when using WotsDoin located at www.wotsdoin.com

    By using or accessing WotsDoin, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.


    The Information We Collect

    When you visit WotsDoin.com you provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us and Web Site use information collected by us as you interact with our Web Site.

    When you register with WotsDoin, you provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, your email address, your gender and any other information you decide to give.

    When you enter WotsDoin, we collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all WotsDoin visitors. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using "cookies." A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you come back to WotsDoin. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable this convenience feature.

    When you use WotsDoin, you may form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, form groups, set up events, and transmit information through various channels. We collect this information so that we can provide you the service and offer personalized features. In most cases, we retain it so that, for instance, you can return to view prior messages you have sent or easily see your friend list. When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information.

    If you post personally identifiable information in areas of the site accessible to other users, you should be aware that such information can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used improperly to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums or for others’ misuse of such information. Any misuse or improper collection of information provided on WotsDoin is a violation of the WotsDoin Terms of Service and should be reported through our Abuse page.

    If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. WotsDoin stores this information to send this one-time email, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at contact@wotsdoin.com to request that we remove this information from our database.

    By using WotsDoin, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States of America.


    Children Under the Age of 14
    Minors under the age of 14 can only have private profiles and can only be contacted by their selected friends.

    Use of Information Obtained by WotsDoin

    When you register with WotsDoin, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed to people in the networks specified in your privacy settings to enable you to connect with people on WotsDoin. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by WotsDoin that we think you may find valuable.

    Profile information is used by WotsDoin primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service and to be presented to others permitted to view that information by your privacy settings. In some cases where your privacy settings permit it other WotsDoin users may be able to supplement your profile.

    Profile information you submit to WotsDoin will be available to users of WotsDoin who belong to at least one of the networks you allow to access the information through your privacy settings Your name and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the WotsDoin network unless you alter your privacy settings. This is primarily so your freind can find you and send a friend request. People who see your name in searches, will be able to access and view your profile information.

    WotsDoin will send you only service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.

    WotsDoin does not serve ads to you, we believe that any ads that appear on your profile should be from your hand not ours. We are working on a self serve advertising platform called YouAd.net and should be available in the near future.

    We may use information about you that we collect from other sources, including but not limited to newspapers and Internet sources such as blogs, instant messaging services and other users of WotsDoin, to supplement your profile. Where such information is used, we generally allow you to specify in your privacy settings that you do not want this to be done or to take other actions that limit the connection of this information to your profile (e.g., removing photo tag links).


    Sharing Your Information with Third Parties.
    We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or, 3) permitted by you. For example:
    • We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about WotsDoin, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the WotsDoin-specified purposes.


    • We occasionally provide demonstration accounts that allow non-users a glimpse into the WotsDoin world. Such accounts have only limited capabilities (e.g., messaging is disabled) and passwords are changed regularly to limit possible misuse.


    • We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the WotsDoin service or using the WotsDoin name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.


    • We let you choose to share information with marketers or electronic commerce providers through sponsored groups or other on-site offers.


    • We may offer stores or provide services jointly with other companies on WotsDoin. You can tell when another company is involved in any store or service provided on WotsDoin, and we may share customer information with that company in connection with your use of that store or service.


    • If the ownership of all or substantially all of the WotsDoin business, or individual business units owned by WotsDoin LLC were to change, your user information may be transferred to the new owner so the service can continue operations. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.

    Links
    WotsDoin may contain links to other websites. We are of course not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by WotsDoin.

    Third Party Advertising
    Advertisements that appear on WotsDoin are sometimes delivered (or "served") directly to certain pages by third party advertisers, but are primarily delivered through YouAD.net a selfserve advertising platform where users control which advertisments they see. When this happens advertisers automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer, or use other technologies such as JavaScript and "web beacons" (also known as "1x1 gifs") to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. WotsDoin does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third party advertisers. Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on WotsDoin unless you choose to share it with them.
    This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by WotsDoin and does not cover the use of cookies or other tracking technologies by any of its advertisers.

    Changing or Removing Information
    Access and control over most personal information on WotsDoin is readily available through the profile editing tools. WotsDoin users may modify or remove any of their profile information at any time by logging into their account. Information will be updated immediately. Individuals who wish to deactivate their WotsDoin account may do so on the Privacy page. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be generally available to members of WotsDoin.
    Where you make use of the communication features of the service to share information with other individuals on WotsDoin you generally cannot remove such communications.

    Security
    WotsDoin takes appropriate precautions to protect our users' information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services. If you have any questions about the security of WotsDoin Web Site, please contact us.

    Terms and Conditions, Notices and Revisions
    If you choose to visit WotsDoin, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Privacy Policy and our Terms and Conditions, including limitations on damages, arbitration of, and application of law of the United States of America. We reserve the right to change our Privacy Policy and our Terms and Conditions at any time. Non-material changes and clarifications will take effect immediately, and material changes will take effect within 30 days of their posting on this site. If we make changes, we will post them and will indicate at the top of this page the policy's effective date. We therefore encourage you to refer to this policy on an ongoing basis so that you understand our current privacy policy. Unless stated otherwise, our current privacy policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account.

    Privacy Outline
    WotsDoin LLC. Postal address 1111 Post Oak Blvd, Suite # 209, Houston, TX, 77056 is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of personal information entrusted to us.

    Use of this website is subject to these Terms of Use.

    Some of the websites owned and operated by WotsDoin LLC. including but not limited to http://www.wotsdoin.com have, special concerns about the privacy of users who are children under the age of 18, and we comply with applicable law regarding collection of information from children, including the The United States' Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") http://www.coppa.org/comply.htm

    These and other applicable laws have special requirements regarding notification to parents and legal guardians (either of which is called a "parent" in this policy) of what personal information is being collected from their child and how that information is used and shared. Parents are strongly encouraged to participate in their children's online activities and monitor their children's use of emails and engagement in other electronic communication.


    What Is Personal Information?
    When this Children's Privacy Policy uses the term "personally identifiable information" ("PII"), we mean information that identifies a particular individual, such as the individual's full name (first name and surname together), postal address, and email address. When certain other information such as who your child may by friends with or what businesses they may be following, or other non-identifiable information is directly associated with PII, this other information also becomes PII for purposes of this Children's Privacy Policy. Some jurisdictions may call personally identifiable information "personal data" or "personally identifying information," and may include opinions about or related to a user in the definition of PII. We sometimes refer to PII in this Children's Privacy Policy as "personal information."

None of this is personally identifiable information, because it cannot be used to contact or identify the child offline. During the registration process, the child is also asked to create a user name and password. Your child should not use any personally identifiable information as his or her user name, as this user name may be visible to others on the site.


    • 2. Surveys and Feedback: We may collect aggregate information in connection with surveys or other online activities that allow your child to give us feedback.
