What We Collect About You

We collect information on the WTFsoftware Sites during the registration process and through your use of the WTFsoftware Sites for business purposes that will allow us to better and more efficiently serve you. Our personalization, interactive communications, online commerce and other types of services, allow us to deliver better service and content that is relevant to our user base. Some uses WTFsoftware makes of this information are processing and verifying subscriptions, billing, and providing you with up-to-date information on the newest WTFsoftware products. Service providers, advertisers, vendors and other third parties (hereinafter 'Providers') may be utilized by WTFsoftware to host, or in conjunction with the operation of, the WTFsoftware Sites and the products, services, and advertising related to them. These Providers may also collect information.

You may be asked to provide information that personally identifies you or allows WTFsoftware and/or its Providers to contact you. Generally this information is requested when you are asked to register for fee-based services, although some free products and services may also request or require registration. For example, we may request personal information from you when you create an account, download an application or content through the WTFsoftware Sites, upload content (e.g., photos, videos) to the WTFsoftware Sites, subscribe to e-mail newsletters or other content made available by the WTFsoftware Sites, or report a problem with your account or the WTFsoftware Sites. You may be asked to provide personally identifiable information such as your name, address, and/or email address (collectively 'Personally Identifiable Information' or 'PII'), as well as select a username and password (if one is not selected for you by WTFsoftware). You may be asked for information which is not considered PII, such as a zip/postal code and/or country of origin. As a registered subscriber or user, you may be able to download software, purchase products, enter contests or sweepstakes, order e-mail newsletters or participate in additional services or other promotions offered on the WTFsoftware Sites. In addition to the PII obtained at registration, you may be asked for information at other times, such as when you make a purchase or register for a service on or through the WTFsoftware Sites, when you submit a listing for a web site, or when you report a problem with one of our sites or services. However, whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others.

To provide location-based services, WTFsoftware and its partners and licensees utilize certain geographic tracking technologies that may collect, use, and/or share precise location data (such as GPS signals sent by a mobile device) or information that can be used to approximate a location (such as a cell ID), including the real-time geographic location of your computer or mobile device. This location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by WTFsoftware and its partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. By accepting WTFsoftware's Privacy Statement and/or by using WTFsoftware's products and/or services, you consent to use by WTFsoftware and its Providers, partners and licensees of such geographic tracking technologies.

If you contact WTFsoftware we may keep a record of that correspondence, and may further prompt you for further information, depending on the nature of the contact. We may also occasionally ask that you voluntarily participate in certain promotions, surveys, sweepstakes or contests ('Special Programs'), or enable automatic entry into such Special Programs via log-on entries. At such times, WTFsoftware may disclose your PII to sponsors of the Special Program, and we may or may not describe this to you prior to transferring the data. Special Programs may also be subject to additional or different terms, or may be shared or used in a slightly different way. If different terms do apply, details of the specific terms and conditions or rules for these Special Programs may or may not be provided by posting to the WTFsoftware Sites or upon registration for the Special Program, on a case-by-case basis, subject to WTFsoftware's terms For Sharing PII.

To the extent unique information, which is not in itself PII, such as personal profile, anonymous identifier(s), demographic information, behavioral information, browser identifiers, session information, device type, carrier provider, unique device ID, UUID/UDID, carrier user ID, web sites visited, IP address and traffic data, is associated with PII, then such unique information shall NOT be considered PII, but shall be considered User Data. Additionally, PII does NOT include information that is collected anonymously (i.e. without identification of the individual user) or demographic or behavioral information that is not connected to or correlated with an identified individual.

You may opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising or customize Google Display Network ads by using the Google Ads Settings page. You may also prevent your data from being collected and used by Google Analytics by opting out through the use of the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

If the WTFsoftware Sites make use of the Google Analytics for Display Advertising Remarketing feature, WTFsoftware will use such Remarketing feature to advertise online and third party vendors, including Google, may show WTFsoftware ads on sites across the Internet.

WTFsoftware and third party vendors, including Google, may use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to (a) inform, optimize and serve ads based on a user’s past visits to the WTFsoftware Sites, and/or (b) report how your ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to the WTFsoftware Sites.
