Privacy Policy

Introduction

This privacy policy, which we adapted from policies originally provided by Automattic (WordPress.com), describes how we treat the information we collect when you visit and use our websites. Please read this notice very carefully.

Children's Personal Information

If you are not of legal age to form a binding contract (in many jurisdictions, this age is 18), you may only use the Service and disclose information to us with your parent's or guardian's express consent. Review this Privacy Policy with your parent or guardian and make sure you understand it, and do the same with the privacy policies of all websites you visit or mobile applications you use. We only collect personal information through the Service from a child under 13 where that student's school, district, and/or teacher has agreed to obtain parental consent for that child to use the Service and disclose personal information to us, for the use and benefit of the learning environment. If you are a student under 13, please do not send any personal information about yourself to us if your school, district, and/or teacher has not obtained this prior consent from your parent or guardian, and please do not send any personal information other than what we request from you in connection with the Service. If we learn we have collected personal information from a student under 13 without parental consent being obtained by his or her school, district, and/or teacher, or if we learn a student under 13 has provided us personal information beyond what we request from him or her, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a student under 13 may have provided us personal information in violation of this paragraph, please contact us at privacy@outwhiz.com .

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Outwhiz (the "Company") collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Company's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Company's visitors use its website. From time to time, Company may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Company also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Company does not use such information to identify its visitors, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Company's websites choose to interact with Company in ways that require Company to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Company gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for Company.com to provide a username and email address. In each case, Company collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Company. Company does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain activities offered by the Service.

Aggregated Statistics

Company may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Company may monitor the most popular content on its websites. Company may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Company does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Company discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Company's behalf or to provide services available at the Service, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Service, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. In addition, in some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if Company or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Company goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquiror of Company may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. Otherwise, Company will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Company discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Company believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Company, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Company website and have supplied your email address, Company may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Company and its products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Company takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information. You should also be aware that if you submit information to "chat rooms," "forums" or "message boards" such information becomes public information, meaning that you lose any privacy rights you might have with regards to that information. Such disclosures may also increase your chances of receiving unwanted communications.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Company uses cookies to help Company identify and track visitors, their usage of Company websites, and their website access preferences. Company visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Company's websites, with the drawback that certain features of Company's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Ads

Ads appearing on any Company websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by Company and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Links to Third Party Sites

This privacy policy only applies to information collected by Company. This privacy policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Company does not own or control, or employees that Company does not manage. The Service may contain links to third party websites. Any information you provide to, or that is collected by, third-party sites may be subject to the privacy policies of those sites, if any. We encourage you to read such privacy policies of any third-party sites you visit. It is the sole responsibility of such third parties to adhere to any applicable restrictions on the disclosure of your personally-identifying information, and Company and its affiliates shall not be liable for wrongful use or disclosure of your personally-identifying information by any third party.

Security

All non-personally-identifying information, potentially personally-identifying and personally identifying-information described above is stored on restricted database servers.

Choice/Opt-out

If we ever send you information by email concerning new products, services or information that you did not expressly request, we will provide you with an email address by which you may request no further notices.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Company may change its privacy policy from time to time, and in Company's sole discretion. Company encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its privacy policy. Your continued use of Company after any change in this privacy policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
