Collection of Personal Information
Use of Your Personal Information
WKT uses your personal information for the operation and maintenance of your WKT account and the WKT Services. For example, we may use your e-mail address to send you a welcome e-mail message when you first register informing you about the service and telling you how to manage your WKT account. You may be required to respond to this e-mail in order to validate that you are the owner of the email address associated with the WKT account. If applicable, failure to respond to the email and verify the address within the time stated in the email will cause the WKT account to become inactive. This process is designed to verify the validity of the email address and to help prevent email addresses from being used without permission in the creation of WKT accounts.
As part of the WKT Services, we may recommend for your consideration various services, products and merchandise. Accordingly, we may analyze data pertaining to your online transactions, purchase history, and WKT Site and WKT Services usage patterns so that we can make recommendations suited especially to you.
We may also send you e-mail about periodic service updates, recommended security updates, or surveys related to the WKT Services or other matters. These periodic e-mails are considered essential to the provision of the service you have requested. You cannot unsubscribe from these mailings. You may, however, choose not to participate in the surveys.
Disclosure of Personal Information
WKT occasionally hires other companies to provide limited services on our behalf or to fulfill a service or transaction you may have requested, such as answering customer support inquiries, fulfilling merchandise orders, selling concert tickets, etc. WKT will only provide these companies with those pieces of your personal information needed to deliver the services.
WKT may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process served on WKT; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of WKT; or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the WKT Service, or the public.
Disclosure of Personal Information to WKT Participating Sites
The information about you stored in the WKT system is not shared with a WKT participating site, service or system unless you explicitly choose to use your WKT account to register or sign in with the participating site. When you use your WKT account to register or sign in with the participating site, service or system, the participating site will receive some or all of the information about you stored in the WKT system. It is important for you to read the privacy statement for each WKT participating site, service or system that you visit before you register or sign in, so that you understand how that site may use your personal information Also, if you registered for a WKT through a participating site, service or system, then that registering site will receive the profile information at the time of registration.
Use of Information by WKT Participating Sites
WKT participating sites, services and systems with whom you choose to share the information can use it for a variety of purposes. These can include personalizing your experience at their sites and reducing registration time by using information in your WKT account to pre-fill their registration forms. WKT participating sites and services may share your personal information with third parties in order to fulfill a service or transaction you may have requested. In addition, participating sites may share your personal information with third parties as permitted by their own privacy policies.
If WKT becomes aware of ongoing, site-specific privacy issues with a WKT participating site, service or system, we will work to address those issues with the site. If at any time you believe that a WKT participating site has not adhered to these principles, please notify Customer Service.
Managing Your Personal Information
You can always add, update, or make other changes to the registration information stored in relation to your WKT account. This is accessible by signing in to any WKT site in which you are registered. If you have a WKT account, you may close that account by contacting Customer Service.
Sharing Your Personal Information
If you choose, you may opt-in to various features which may be available as part of the WKT Services which allow you to voluntarily share information, whether to a group of WKT users designated by you (for example, a “buddy list” or “friends” who also have a WKT) or to everyone (for example, when you post user generated content to a publicly accessible area on a website).
Security and Storage of Your Personal Information
WKT is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
