Your privacy is very important to us. We want to make your experience on the Internet as enjoyable and rewarding as possible, and we want you to use the Internet’s vast array of information, tools, and opportunities with complete confidence.
Collection and Use of Information
Prospective customers are asked to provide certain information when they request product information from WPSS such as name, address, telephone number and billing information. The personal information collected from Prospective Customers during the registration process is used to manage each Member’s account (such as billing and collections).
In order to better understand its Prospective Customers, WPSS collects consumer data such as ZIP code, demographics and other publicly available information from third parties. WPSS uses this data to provide product and service offers. We use data in aggregate to develop products and offers to better serve our Prospective Customers.
WPSS collects information from Visitors and Prospective Customers who use the various parts of our Services. We use this information primarily to provide a customized experience as you use our Services. WPSS collects consumer information about its Prospective Customers through surveys or preference pages.
WPSS may share personal information with select affiliates in order to provide WPSS services to our Prospective Customers. WPSS does not share identifying information (like name and address) with affiliates for their use in delivering product and service offers to Prospective Customers. Affiliates will not be allowed to use any information provided in serving our customers to be sold, rented, or given to any other company. Affiliates are not allowed to use WPSS data for any other purpose other than WPSS approved programs designed to better serve Prospective Customers.
In instances where WPSS and an affiliate jointly promote our Services or Products, WPSS may provide the affiliate certain personal information, as a result of the joint promotion. In this instance, the information may not be used by the affiliate for any other purpose. WPSS may also generate aggregate profiles from information provided during registration (such as the total number, but not the names, of Prospective Customers). We may use this aggregated and non-identifying information to sell advertisements that appear on this site.
We use registration information to contact you in a variety of ways. We may send you offers through e-mail, phone or regular mail of WPSS products and services or offers on behalf of selected affiliates. If you order products directly from WPSS, we will use your information to continue to provide you products that you are interested in.
WPSS Affiliates and Sponsors
Some WPSS products and services are offered to Prospective Customers in conjunction with a third-party vendor. To provide these products and services, the vendor may need to collect and maintain your personal information. WPSS may share non-identifying and aggregate consumer information with such affiliates in order to more effectively market our co-branded products or services offered to our customers.
At our company web sites, you can register to receive materials, such as a catalog or new product and service updates. In many cases, you may be asked to provide contact information, such as your name, address, e-mail address, and phone number. If you complete an order for someone else, you may be asked to provide information about the recipient, such as the recipient’s name, address, and phone number. WPSS has no control over third-party web sites and their use of any personal information you provide when placing such an order. Please exercise care when doing so.
WPSS may share aggregated and non-identifying information about our Visitors and Prospective Customers collected through the registration process as well as through online surveys and promotions with select advertisers. In some instances, we use this information to deliver tailored advertisements. Based upon the information we have collected, we may then display advertisements to specific audiences. WPSS does not share personal information about its Prospective Customers with these advertisers.
We may periodically conduct both business and individual surveys. We encourage Prospective Customers to participate in these voluntary surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will remain confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third-party.
We take the information we receive from individuals responding to our surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses of other Prospective Customers to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions. This aggregated, non-personally identifying information may be shared with third-party affiliates.
It is WPSS’s policy not to use or share the personal information in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses. However, WPSS may disclose personal information or information regarding use of the Services if, for any reason, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including: to satisfy laws, regulations or other legal requests for such information; to disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Acceptable Use Policy or other policies; to operate the Services properly; or to protect WPSS, our Services, our employees or our Prospective Customers.
