 Privacy Policy

(Effective October 24, 2013)

This Privacy Policy informs you of the policies and procedures of wotazoo regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information received from users of wotazoo. This policy does not apply to information collected by wotazoo by other means (including offline) or from other sources.  By using wotazoo, you agree to the use of your personal information in accordance with this policy.  If you do not agree with the terms of the policy, do not use wotazoo.

Information Collection and Use

Wotazoo uses the information you provide or that we collect to develop, operate, maintain, administer, improve our site, services, features and content and to customise and target content that may be interesting, relevant or useful to you, including advertisements, and for other administrative purposes. 

Information that is Collected

(i) User-Provided Information

When you use wotazoo, and specifically when you register with us, you may be required to provide information that would be considered personally identifiable, including but not limited to your name, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone number, user name and password.  We use your personal information to personalise wotazoo to make it more useful to you.  It enables you to log onto wotazoo automatically each time you visit, rather than manually inputting name and password each time.  We may also use your personal information to contact you every so often with news or important information from wotazoo.  We may also email you additional materials, upon your request such as an opt-in newsletter or other material.  If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address and our responses.  

(ii) Third Party Login Functionality

You can register to join by logging into online accounts you may have with third party service providers. (e.g. Facebook, Google) By using the Facebook or Google functionality to log into wotazoo, you permit us to access and use specific identifying information related to your Facebook or Google account.  For example, when you sign into wotazoo through Facebook Connect, you authorise wotazoo to access and use specific identifying information, such as your Facebook user ID, name, email, gender, birthday, current city, profile picture, networks, the Facebook user ID’s of your friends who have also signed into wotazoo through Facebook Connect, and any other information you allowed to be shared with everyone. 

 (iii) Location Data

When you use wotazoo through a mobile device, we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store “location data” which may include GPS coordinates or similar information regarding the location of your mobile device.  Location data may convey information about how you browse wotazoo.  You can change the privacy settings of your mobile device to turn off the functionality to share location information.    

(iv) Cookies

We use “cookies” to collect information.  A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes.  A cookie may contain information that allows us to track your path through our website.  A cookie does not collect personal information about you. Cookies cannot be used to read data off your hard drive, and cannot retrieve information from any other cookies created by other websites. We use cookies to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction to better understand how you interact with the site and whether you have visited us before.  A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.  However, some features of the site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.  Third party advertisers on the website may also place or read cookies on your browser.  

(v) Log Data

Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page.  When you use the website, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website.  This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, web request, browser type, pages of our site that you view, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our site, times and dates when you initiate a search, location from which you initiated the search and other statistics. We collect and use this information to understand and analyse the aggregate or usage trends and preferences of our users. 

(vi) Web Beacons

Our site may contain Web beacons (also known as clear gifs) which are used to track the online usage patterns of our users anonymously.  No personally identifiable information from your wotazoo account is collected using these web beacons.  They may also be used in some of our emails to track which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to improve the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.

Sharing of Information

Third Party Services  

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information.  We may however provide personally identifiable information to third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you (including without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics, fraud detection services).  We will require those parties to agree to use any such personally identifiable data solely for the purpose of providing the specified services to wotazoo and to refrain from disclosing the information except when required by law.  However, non-personally identifiable information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Links to Third Parties

Wotazoo contains links to other websites.  If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website.  The fact that wotazoo links to a website or presents a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practises.  We do not exercise control over third party websites.  These websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Wotazoo has no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies that we encourage you to read.
