What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

WorldUsenet.com is the sole owner of information collected at this site. We will not ever sell, share or rent this information to others. Collected information is never used outside the operating offices of this company. WorldUsenet.com takes every precaution to protect our member’s information. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Any time new policies are added, our employees are trained to implement new information. We stress the importance we place on the protection of member information.

Personal Information:
As a visitor or member of WorldUsenet.com, you may choose to use the website to send us personal information (e.g., your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address), for example, when you send a question via the website, register for our service, or submit through our website. Anytime you submit personal information for a specific purpose using the website, your information is used for that purpose only, unless you consent otherwise or as required by law. When you submit personal information WorldUsenet.com on this website, you understand and agree that this information may be transferred across national boundaries and may be stored and processed in another country, which may not provide privacy protections similar to those your country provides.

We use email to respond to email messages from you, to confirm service orders placed online and to engage in other communication that you have authorized or that we have determined necessary to more effectively service you and our customers.

In many cases, you choose the amount of information you supply (e.g., when sending us information through the website, you may choose to include only an email address  – not a telephone number or mailing address – for replies). There may be instances where some of the information that we ask you to provide, such as username or CCBILL registration number, is only to assist you better.

Registration:

Our registration process ( through CCBILL ) requires sensitive, individual, information. This information is encrypted and protected by superior industry software. This information is used only to process an order or troubleshoot an account at the request of the user.
