Privacy Policy

 

Your privacy matters to WCSO. To better protect your privacy and make it more efficient for you and others to interact with WCSO’s system and government partners, WCSO and its government partners (collectively, “We”) provide this Privacy Policy to explain our online information practices and how your information is collected and used by the Services.  This policy applies to the Services and this website with respect to information that the Services may receive or collect from users of the Services, including you.

 

Collection of Information

We expect to collect some or all of the following information:

(a)  Personally Identifiable Information. We expect to collect personally identifiable information through the Services, and may ask for personally identifiable information such as some or all of your name, address, phone number, email address, personal information you voluntarily submit in completing any applications or forms online and any applicable payment information (credit card number and expiration date, account/check information, etc.). Some or all of this information will be stored in one or more databases of this website. You may be assigned a password in order to access certain functions of the Services.

(b)  Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We may also collect non-personally identifiable information that includes the domain of the private Internet access accounts associated with your use of the Services (such as “abcCorporation.com”), an Internet address number assigned to your computing device when you are online, the pages you visit within this website, the type of Internet browser and computer operating system you are using, and links to other websites that you access. We may also collect non-personally identifiable information through the use of “cookies,” small text files placed on your computing device. We use cookies to deliver content specific to users’ activities as part of the Services, such as enabling ease of log-on to the Services. If you want to refuse cookies, most web browsers offer a simple procedure to disable cookies. You may still use the Services even if cookies are refused.

Please note that the information that We may collect is not limited to text, but may also include other digital content, including photos, audio, documents, video and other electronic files you voluntarily provide to us. The information We retain is used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies.


Use of Your Information

We may use and share amongst government agencies and partners, depending on the activity through the Services, personally identifiable information in order to provide the specific service and to conduct and complete transactions through the Services. We may use the personally identifiable information We collect to notify you about this website and partner-related services, activities and transactions.

We may also use personally identifiable information in statistical analysis about usage of the Services and activities conducted within this website, to improve the Services and to generate aggregate reports on trends, user activity and demographics.


Public Disclosure

Unless required by law, We do not expect to disclose any personally identifiable information collected online to entities outside of government departments, agencies and partners for which a service or transaction is being carried out. Nevertheless, We may disclose such information in special cases when We have reason to believe it is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interfering with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. We also may disclose user information that is considered public information or an available public record pursuant to applicable law, or otherwise when We believe in good faith that the law requires it.


Changes to this Privacy Statement

Revisions to this Privacy Policy will be posted to this location so that you will know the type of information We collect and how that information is used.
