WebTuner Corporation Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy of WebTuner Corporation (“WebTuner”) has been created to better serve those who are concerned with how their personally identifiable information (“PII”) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. However, in our Privacy Policy we will use PII to refer more broadly to all information about you that we collect as described further in this Privacy Policy

 

This Privacy Policy applies to any WebTuner device, website or software application or software service (including binj™) that that we commercially distribute or sell and that refers or is linked to the Privacy Policy (collectively, our “Offerings”). The Privacy Policy applies regardless of whether you use a mobile phone/tablet computing device, or other device to access our Offerings, use our offerings to access other on-line content, or both.

 

Please read our Privacy Policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your PII. Anytime you use our Offerings, you consent to the practices we describe in the Privacy Policy and any supplements or revisions. If you do not agree to the practices described in the Privacy Policy, you should not use our Offerings.

 

This Privacy Policy may be revised from time to time.  Please revisit and read it carefully to re-acquaint yourself with how we handle PII so you understand any changes. Date of Last Revision: December 7, 2015.

We or our order processing provider(s) implement a variety of security measures when a user places an order enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal PII.

 

All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.

 

However, please note that although we and our order and payment processing providers make reasonable efforts to protect PII, no website, Internet transmission, computer system or wireless connection is completely secure.

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your device’s memory through your web application or browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize you and capture and remember certain PII.

They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We use cookies to track advertisements.  We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.  We may also use trusted third party services that track this PII on our behalf.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf.

 

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously.

Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.

Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’, and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

 

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our Privacy Policy Page.

 

Users are able to change their personal information:

  • By emailing us
  • By calling us
  • By logging in to their account
  • By chatting with us or sending us a ticket
  • Others

 

How does our site handle do not track signals?

We do not honor do not track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place. We don’t honor them because our current practices described in our Privacy Policy are important for us to operate our business and to continue providing and supporting our Offerings. There also currently is disagreement, including among participants in the leading Internet standards-setting organization, concerning what, if anything, websites and other internet accessing technologies should do when they receive such signals. WebTuner currently does not take action in response to these signals, but, if and when a standard is established and accepted, we may reassess how to respond to these signals and update this Privacy Policy accordingly.

 

 

 

Does our site and our other Offerings with internet accessing technologies allow third party behavioral tracking? Yes, we allow third party behavioral tracking

 

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

 

We do not specifically market to children under 13. If we learn that a child under the age of thirteen (13) has provided us with PII or other personal information, we will delete it in accordance with applicable law.

 

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

 

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify the users via email

  • Within 7 business days
  • We will notify the users via website notification within 1 business day

 

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

 

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

 

We collect your email address in order to:

  • send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions;
  • process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders;
