1. Types of Information Collected
Through the use of cookie technology, log-files or otherwise, we may track and collect information about your computer and software when you visit the Site as well as record activity on the Site and gather statistics about users’ browsing habits. These entries are generated anonymously and help us to understand and analyze trends, to administer the Site, to learn about user behavior on the Site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. This information may include: (i) your Internet Protocol (IP) address; (ii) domain server; (iii) type of computer; (iv) browser type, language and resolution; (v) Internet Service Provider (ISP); (vi) referring and exit pages; (vii) operating system; (viii) access date/time; and (ix) clickstream data (collectively “Traffic Data”). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you. Traffic Data assists us to design and arrange our web pages in the user-friendliest manner and to continually improve our Site to better meet the needs of users.
If you communicate with us by e-mail or otherwise complete online forms or the like, any personally identifiable information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information.
You may choose not to provide us with any Personal Information. In such an event, you can still access and use much of the Site. You, however, will not be able to access or use those areas of the Site or participate in online activities that require your Personal Information.
Specifically, we employ cookie technology to store and track information about the users of the Site. Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a web site. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on the user’s hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that web site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related web pages. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change your browser to prevent the browser from accepting cookies – you can disable cookies in the security settings of your browser. If you disable or reject cookies, you may still use the Site, but your ability to use some areas and features/functions of the Site may be limited.
We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our Site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our Site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following the directions provided in your Internet browser’s “HELP” file.
We use web beacons (small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of web sites) and auditing software to track page views and entry and exit points to and from the Site. In addition, we may use web beacons, cookies, customized links and/or similar technologies to determine whether electronic newsletter(s) sent by us to those who have requested them from us have been opened and which links are clicked. Any data collected will only be used in an aggregate form and will not contain any Personal Information, as that term is defined below.
We may allow certain Wonder Forge affiliates to include cookies, web beacons and/or other technologies within pages of the Site. These affiliates may aggregate information about our advertising and provide auditing, research and reporting for our advertisers. No Personal Information is shared with our advertisers or our affiliates.
We use the services of Webtrekk to collect statistical data on the use of the Site and optimize our Site based on that data. During your visit to the Site, information will be collected from your browser and analyzed for our web tracking. The collection occurs via a pixel, which is built into the pages of the Site. Webtrekk does not save any information that can be attributed to a specific individual. Webtrekk provides aggregated data, such as the number of users and the number of pages visited at the Site while monitored by Webtrekk. In addition to the number of times specific pages are visited, other Traffic Data and technical data is retained – such as browser type, screen resolution, color depth and operating system. In order to enhance the Site’s marketing impact, Webtrekk records users’ search words and reference pages from the Site. Webtrekk uses collected information exclusively to provide a statistical analysis of the usage of the web site. The data collected is not passed on to a third party. As a result the studies are based on anonymous data and cannot be associated with any Personal Information.
3. Security and Protection of Personal Information
Wonder Forge will only collect Personal information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to serve our legitimate business purposes and we will take reasonable steps to safeguard Personal Information we collect from unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss or alteration.
The Site is based in the state of Washington, United States of America. The server is maintained by a third party service provider. The Site has security measures in place intended to protect Personal Information against loss, theft, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Any information provided to Wonder Forge on our web site is administered in a secure datacenter located in Germany and maintained by a third party service provider. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all pages where Personal Information is collected. To make purchases and use these services you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our Site, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure security on our systems.
4. Uses and Sharing of Information Collected
In general, we will use Personal Information only for the purpose for which such information was provided to us. We may also use Personal Information to (i) to verify the information you provided to us; (ii) to provide you the information that you have requested; (iii) to respond to your inquiries; (iv) to contact you when necessary; and (v) to send you information about us, including information related to our products, programs or promotional activities, or about third-party products, services, programs or promotional activities that we believe may be of interest to you. In the case of third party products, service, programs or promotional activities, your Personal Information is not transferred to the third party.
We may use Traffic Data to analyze trends, administer the Site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
We may provide Traffic Data and/or other aggregate non-personally identifying information to third parties.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may transfer, sell or assign information concerning the Site and your use of the Site, including without limitation, Personal Information, to third parties, as a result of the sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of substantial assets, reorganization or liquidation of Wonder Forge.
6. Children Under the Age of 13
