This policy is global in nature and governs our data protection practices whether we collect your personal information through one of our Websites, through application software or through other means. When we collect information about you other than through one of our Websites, we will first obtain your permission to do so, if and as required by applicable law. However, by using any Weft Website on which this policy is posted, you agree that this policy governs our collection, use, and disclosure of any personal information submitted to us on or through that Website. If you do not agree to be bound by this policy, you may not access or use our Websites and/or use our application software.
Weft collects information about you from various sources. For example, we may have a direct relationship with you, and you may choose to provide personal information to us in connection with that relationship. You may choose to submit information to us, for example, on our Websites, in connection with use of our products, services or applications software, when you participate in an offer or promotion, or in connection with an actual or potential business or employment relationship with us. We also may obtain information about you from companies that use our products or services, publicly available information systems, consumer reporting agencies, and commercial information services. The types of personal information we may obtain are:
We also collect certain information by automated means. For example, we collect information that is sent to us automatically by your Web browser when you visit our Websites, or through applications software that you have downloaded. This information typically includes your IP address, the identity of your Internet service provider, the name and version of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, the pages you visit, your location and your mobile device unique identifier. We also use "cookies" and other Web technologies to collect information and support certain features of our Websites. For example, we may use these technologies to collect information about the ways visitors use this Site—which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page. The information we collect from your Web browser and from cookies and other Web technologies does not identify you personally but in some cases we may link it to personally identifiable information.
We may use the information we obtain about you to:
We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal information we collect about you, except as described herein or otherwise disclosed to you at the time the data is collected. We will disclose your Personal Information when you direct or give us permission, when we are required by law to do so, or when we suspect fraudulent or criminal activities. If you are performing services directly or indirectly for us and using an application provided by us, then we may collect information for the purpose of providing information to our customers. We may also share your personal information with third-party vendors that perform tasks on our behalf and under our instruction. These third-party vendors may use your personal information only in connection with the services they perform on our behalf and they are bound to protect your personal information in a manner consistent with our own policies and practices. On our Websites, you may have an opportunity to post user-generated content using social networking tools available on those sites. If you take advantage of this opportunity, remember that the user-generated content you post is available to others who visit the Website and therefore you should have no expectation of privacy with respect to such content. In addition, you may choose to use certain features on our Websites for which we partner with other entities. These features, which may include social networking and geographic location tools, are operated by third parties that are not affiliated with Weft. These third parties may use personal information in accordance with their own privacy policies. On sites on which these features are offered, the relevant third parties are identified. We strongly suggest you review the third parties' privacy policies if you use the relevant features. We also reserve the right to transfer information about you to a successor organization if, for example, we transfer the ownership or operation of one of our Websites to another organization or if we merge with another organization. If such a transfer occurs, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use personal information you have provided to us in a manner consistent with this policy. Following such a sale or transfer, you may contact the entity to which we transferred your personal information with any inquiries concerning the processing of that information.
We may transfer the personal information we collect about you to countries other than the country in which the information was originally collected. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. When we transfer your information to other countries, we will protect that information as described in this policy. If you are located in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, we comply with applicable legal requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal information to countries outside of the EEA or Switzerland.
We maintain reasonable administrative, physical and technological measures to protect the confidentiality and security of information about you. Unfortunately, no Website, server or database is completely secure or "hacker proof." We therefore cannot guarantee that information about you will not be disclosed, misused or lost by accident or by the unauthorized acts of others. Weft never collects information for third party commercial marketing purposes nor does it create individual profiles or provide your information to any third party organization. Weft will only share your information with third parties when and as you request or as otherwise required by law.
We are proud of our Websites and we strive to ensure that they do not offend people of any age. However, unless otherwise noted on a particular site, our Websites are not intended for children under the age of thirteen years without the permission of a parent or guardian. If you believe that a child has submitted personally identifiable information on or through our Websites without the consent and supervision of a parent or guardian, please contact us using the information provided below so that we can take appropriate action.
Our Websites may provide links to other Websites for your convenience and information. These Websites may operate independently from Weft. Linked sites may have their own privacy notices or policies, which we strongly suggest you review. In addition, a link to a non-Weft Website does not mean that Weft endorses or accepts any responsibility for the content, or the use, of such Website. It is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever you select for your use is free of such items as viruses, worms, Trojan horses and other items of a destructive nature. Weft is not liable for the privacy practices or the content of other Websites and to the extent any linked Websites you visit are not owned or controlled by Weft, we are not responsible for the sites' content, any use of the sites, or the privacy practices of the sites.
If you have any questions or comments about this policy, or if you would like us to update information we have about you or your preferences, you may contact us using the information below. Please make all inquiries or requests regarding your information in English so we can respond to and resolve requests.
