This policy tells you, among other things, what information we gather from you, how we may use or disclose that information, and our efforts to protect it. Please read this policy carefully, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding its contents.
When orders are placed, we will ask for billing information to complete your purchase. All information collected through our shopping cart's checkout pages is through a 256 bit encrypted connection to your browser, using a valid SSL certificate. Your billing name, address, and purchase details are retained in our secure databases. We do not store or mail your credit card numbers. Credit card details are processed via a secure gateway. If you prefer, we have provided several alternate methods for online purchasing of our products and services: You may mail in your payment, or request a traditional phone call to obtain your credit card details. If using the PayPal service to checkout, all billing information is provided once you are passed off to their secure transaction servers at PayPal. They handle everything.
All information collected by our online ordering system is used solely for in house ordering and transaction management: to register your products, to resolve billing issues, to mail you receipts, invoices, special access codes to our developer areas. We do not use our ordering system's information, i.e., email addresses, phone numbers, addresses, for anything outside what is required to complete transactions. We do not use any of your information to mail unsolicited mail. You must voluntarily sign up for our announcements mailing list to receive notifications of new products.
The personal information you have provided us and information about your order will not be shared, sold, or given to any third party invested in the business of marketing, or collecting marketing information. Note: When paying by credit card, your charge and payment information is processed via our merchant services account.
It is the intention of WMI to prosecute credit card fraud to the fullest extent of all state, federal, and international laws. We will provide any and all transactional information, including (but not limited to) all trace information to the purchasing computer, to State, Federal and International Authorities, including the FBI, The Department of Justice, The Federal Trade Commission, and the National White Collar Crime Center.
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the WMI Sites, in which case WMI may not be able to provide certain services to you. You can edit or unsubscribe your information, including your marketing preferences, at any time. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you profile access or making corrections. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times. We reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to the WMI Sites, such as service announcements, administrative messages and news, that are considered part of your account, without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them.
If WMI learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. WMI may post a notice on the MWI Sites if a security breach occurs. We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information 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.
WMI may allow third-party advertisers to serve advertisements within the WMI Sites. These third-party advertisers use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear on the WMI Sites. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. WMI does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party advertisers without your consent, except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. Should you respond to an advertisement, the advertiser may conclude that you fit the description of the audience the advertiser is trying to reach. The advertiser may also use information regarding your use of the WMI Sites, such as the number of times you viewed an ad (but not any personally identifiable information), to determine which ads to deliver to you.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, WMI does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information or non-personally-identifiable information on the WMI Sites from persons under 13 years of age, and no part of our website is directed to persons under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use or access the WMI Sites at any time or in any manner. If WMI learns that personally identifiable information of persons under 13 years of age has been collected on the WMI Sites without verified parental consent, then WMI will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.
