  1. USERS OF THE WAAHELAY WEBSITE GENERALLY

 “Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person. “Personally-Identifying Information,” by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person. Like most website operators, Waahelay gathers from users of the Website Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type and the locations of the websites the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website. Although such information is not Personally-Identifying Information, it may be possible for Waahelay to determine from an IP address a user’s Internet service provider and the geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity as well as other statistical usage data. Waahelay analyses Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website to help Waahelay better understand how the Website is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, Waahelay is able to better design the Website to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use. From time to time, Waahelay may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from Website users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Waahelay Website.

 

  1. WEB COOKIES

A “Web Cookie” is a string of information which assigns you a unique identification that a website stores on a user’s computer, and that the user’s browser provides to the Waahelay website each time the user submits a query to the Waahelay website. We use cookies on our Website to keep track of services you have used, to record registration information regarding your login name and password, to record your user preferences, to keep you logged into the Website and to facilitate purchase procedures. Waahelay also uses Web Cookies to track the pages that users visit during each Website session, both to help Waahelay improve users’ experiences and to help Waahelay understand how the Website is being used. As with other Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website, Waahelay analyses and discloses in aggregated form information gathered using Web Cookies, so as to help us, its partners and others better understand how the Website is being used. Waahelay users who do not wish to have web cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse web cookies before accessing the waahelay website, with the understanding that certain features of the website may not function properly without the aid of web cookies. Website users who refuse web cookies assume all responsibility for any resulting loss of functionality.

 

  1. WEB BEACONS

A “Web Beacon” is an object that is embedded in a web page or email that is usually invisible to the user and allows website operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular web page or an email. Waahelay may use Web Beacons on the Website and in emails to count users who have visited particular pages, viewed emails and to deliver co-branded services. Web Beacons are not used to access users’ Personally-Identifying Information. They are a Technique Waahelay may use to compile aggregated statistics about Website usage. Web Beacons collect only a limited set of information, including a Web Cookie number, time and date of a page or email view and a description of the page or email on which the Web Beacon resides. You may not decline Web Beacons.

However, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all Web Cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a Web Cookie is tendered, permitting you to accept or decline Web Cookies on an individual basis.

 

  1. ANALYTICS

We may partner with selected third parties to allow tracking technology on the Waahelay Website, which will enable them to collect data about how you interact with the Waahelay Website and our services over time. This information may be used to, among other things, analyse and track data, determine the popularity of certain content and better understand online activity.

 

  1. MOBILE DEVICE TERMS
  • Mobile Device. If you use a mobile device to access the Website or download any of our mobile applications, we may collect device information (such as your mobile device ID, model and manufacturer), operating system, version information and IP address.
  • Geo-Location Information. Unless we have received your prior consent, we do not access or track any location-based information from your mobile device at any time while downloading or using our mobile application or our services, except that it may be possible for Waahelay to determine from an IP address the geographic location of your point of connectivity, in which case we may gather and use such general location data.

We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any Personally-Identifying Information you submit within the mobile application.

Once connected, other users may also be able to see information about your social network, such as the size of your network and your friends, including common friends.

By connecting your account on the Waahelay Website to your account on any social networking site, you hereby consent to the continuous release of information about you to us. We will not send any of your account information to the connected social networking site without first disclosing that to you. Each social network may further allow you to set privacy controls around your information on their system, and our collection of information will always follow such controls and permissions. This feature is subject to continuous change and improvement by us and each social networking site involved, and therefore the available features and shared information are subject to change without notice to you.
