This Policy shall supplement our Terms and Conditions of Service (the "Terms"), along with any other guidelines and policies provided by us from time to time, all incorporated herein by reference.
Here at Wajooba, we work hard to earn and keep your trust; and therefore we adhere to the following principles in order to protect your privacy:
We will not sell or lease your PI to third parties.
We will not disclose your PI with other users or third parties without your consent.
Any PI that you provide to Wajooba will be secured with industry standard safety protocols and technology.
As used herein and elsewhere, the words "collect", "use", "process", "treat", "disclose" and analogous shall be related to your PI and other data that we may receive from our clients, users and/or visitors, including cookies inside a computer and mobile device IDs.
You can rest assured that we will never spam your inbox, provide unsolicited offers or otherwise disclose your personally identifiable information (the "PI") to any third party, unless we have your prior express consent.
Ok, so what is personally identifiable information? Is it a fancy way of referring to your email? Well, yes.
In order to use the Site and any and all Services offered thereby, you may or will need to disclose PI to us, including but not limited to: your name, last name, IP address, email, phone number, gender, date of birth, address and postal/zip code. In addition, we offer certain payment functionalities, which require that certain third party payment processing platforms collect sensitive financial information of our users (e.g. credit card and payment information).
We know most people never read the legal of websites, and that perhaps only our main clients, investors, their attorneys and the most hardcore of our users will ever read them. In any case, it doesn’t hurt to read this, so please, we invite you to read this Policy carefully before providing any information to us.
We do not ask you to send or to disclose us, any kind of sensitive PI, that is, Social Security numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, trade union membership or criminal background.
No identity theft here. Continue reading.
If you do not wish to disclose any or part of your PI to us, you may still be able to use some of the functionalities of our Services, though we will not be able to guarantee that you will be able to enjoy our offerings and benefits if you elect not to disclose it to us. Overall, your final remedies will be to close this web tab, delete your account with us and/or exit the Site.
Please, do not use the Site if you do not agree with this Policy or any other rules on the Site. No kidding.

We are surprised you are still reading this.
We continuously try to improve our user experience, and strive to provide you the best choices for the disclosure, edition or removal of the PI being processed by us.

If you request rectification, please indicate amendments to be made and attach documentation to back up your request.
Upon receipt of your privacy request, and after due review, we may then edit, deactivate and/or delete your PI from our databases. We will retain your PI for as long as needed to provide the applicable Service you use, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. In case of secure databases under our control where deletion becomes impossible, we will make such information inaccessible. Please take into account that we may not be able to delete all of your data from our secure databases or the databases of third parties to which your PI has already been disclosed. If that is the case, please contact such third parties directly in order to request enforcement of your privacy rights.
Safety of your information
We use industry standard protocols and technology to protect your registered user information and PI, such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and secure databases. Your PI is only accessible by a limited number of our employees who have special access rights. Overall, we implement and maintain reasonable security measures to protect our databases and records from unauthorized access, acquisition, destruction, use, modification or disclosure. However, please take into account that the Internet and related transmissions are not secure or error free communication means.
We did pay for the expensive Word Press anti-hacker plug-ins you know!
Additionally, if you post information on a public forum, message board, blog or bulletin board, any PI you elect to disclose therein there may or will be read, collected and/or used by other users of such forums and could be used by third parties to send you unsolicited messages.
Please do not blame us for your Facebook comments or likes. Or if your ex stalks you there.
Information Release and Disclosure
We must reserve our right to disclose your PI when we or our affiliates, clients, contractors, licensors, officers, agents and/or representatives reasonably believe it necessary to protect our interests, or where you result to be in breach of Terms and/or this Policy. Accordingly, we will have the right to disclose any and all collected PI and/or data, under the following circumstances:
This is a lot of legal mambo jumbo. It basically says: if you don’t want your info used by us, then don’t use the site. This is the third or fourth time we have told you so, but what to do about, lawyers.
If required under applicable law, rules or regulations.
In response to a valid request or subpoena from a government or law enforcement agency.

Our service providers do not have any right to use your PI or other information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us in order to provide the products or Services requested by you. Our service providers and business partners are bound to the same standards of safety and privacy that we have promised to you in this Policy.

Simple use of our Services entails your acknowledgement and authorization to such information transfer, if any.
Our users who are healthcare professionals, their employees and their agents are bound to additional obligations of patient confidentiality under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act ("HIPAA"). Wajooba is not bound under compliance with the HIPAA, and henceforth we do not have, will not accept, and expressly renounce and waive, any and all obligations of confidentiality with respect to any communications other than those expressly stated in this Policy and our Terms.

Wajooba does not knowingly collect any kind of information from persons under the age of thirteen (13). If we learn or have reason to suspect that a user is under such age, we will delete any PI under that user’s account.
Newsletters and Commercial Messages

Beacons are used to identify each of our pages in order to be analyzed by our system tools.

Using such tools, we learn how to optimize, and serve ads based on a user’s past visits, providing you with a better user experience.
Why should you care about this? Why would you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content? Well, you have a right to privacy dude, and if you are not interested, or you didn’t know, well then you know that we DO care. If in doubt, please contact the responsible provider directly, or quit using the Internet altogether, or learn how to brose the deep web so you don’t get tracked by anyone. Except the NSA, who, you know, reads all emails and data sent over the web. NSA =bad guys. Wajooba = nice guys.

Facebook makes its money by making you work for free for them. No kidding.In 10 years, they should have algorithms that can replace you entirely. Like a Terminator based off on you.
