INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
WGBC collects personal identifying information when you register on the Website, when you use certain products or services on the Website and when you enter promotions, sweepstakes or similar services sponsored by WGBC or its business partners. WGBC may also receive personal identifying information from its business partners.
If registration required, WGBC may request your name, email address, and some other personal information. Once you register with WGBC and/or sign in to our products or services, you are not anonymous to WGBC and the information provided will be held by WGBC.
In the event that registration or sign in occurs via Facebook authentication services (Facebook account), WGBC may receive some information from Facebook, but you remain solely responsible for your whole relationship with Facebook, including, without limitation, any content on the Facebook website.
In case you terminate your membership with Facebook and/or terminate the links between Facebook and our Website, WGBC will delete all data received from Facebook concerning you if you ask WGBC to do so. You can do so using the same easy way as for the ability to access your personal identifying information as defined in this Policy. Further, Facebook may require WGBC to delete data received from Facebook API in case of violation of their terms.
If Facebook will disable any links to our website, WGBC will delete all your data received through the use of the Facebook API, unless it is a basic account information or WGBC have received explicit consent from you to retain your data.
WGBC also automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your Internet Protocol address (IP address), which identifies your computer, WGBC's cookies information and the page you requested.
WGBC uses information collected for three general purposes: for technical administration of the Website, for research and development to achieve and maintain a high service level and for customer information (to customise the content you see, to fulfill your request for certain products and services and to contact you about specials and new products and services).

WGBC will not sell or rent your personal identifying information without your consent. WGBC may send personal identifying information about you to third parties when:
WGBC has your consent to share the information;
WGBC needs to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested;
WGBC needs to send the information to third parties who work on behalf of WGBC to provide a product or service to you (unless otherwise stated so, these third parties do not have any rights to use the personal identifying information WGBC provides to them beyond what is necessary to provide a product or service to you);
WGBC responds to courts or authorities;
WGBC finds that your actions on the Website violate WGBC Website Terms and Conditions of Use or any other WGBC's guidelines or rules applicable for specific services; or
WGBC uses its own cookies for number of purposes, mainly to:

keep track of preferences you specify while you are using WGBC services;
estimate and report our total audience size and traffic;
conduct research and development to improve the Website contents and services and achieve and maintain a high service level.
WGBC may allow third parties that are presenting promotions or researching users response to advertisements on some of our pages to set and access their own cookies on your computer. Third parties’ use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies and not this one.
If you communicate with WGBC by email, you should note that the secrecy of Internet email is uncertain. By sending sensitive or confidential email messages or information which are not encrypted you accept the risk of such uncertainty and possible lack of confidentiality over the Internet. In certain areas, WGBC uses industry standard SSL encryption to protect data transmissions.
