INFORMATION COLLECTED BY WORLD WEBX
We only collect personal information that is relevant to the purpose of our website. This information allows us to provide you with a customized and efficient experience. We collect the following types of information from our World WebX users.
INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US
We receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features.
In order for you to use World WebX services you must complete a registration form. As part of this registration form, we require certain personal information.
To allow you to express yourself beyond just the information collected during registration, we enable you to provide additional information, such as your first and last names, email address, social media account names, your birthday, a bio, favorite URLs, and instant messaging IDs. In addition, you may choose to include photos of yourself in your profile. As indicated below, in the section titled "Sharing Your Information", you can control how your information is displayed and used.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. World WebX and its authorized agents automatically receive and record certain "traffic data" on their server logs from your browser including your IP address, World WebX cookie information, and the page you requested. World WebX uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers, analyze trends and administer the website. This does not involve collecting any of your personal information.
In addition to the "traffic data", World WebX and its authorized agents may collect information about the device you're using to access World WebX, its operating system, unique device identifier, device settings such as language and crash data. Which data is specifically collected depends on the type of device and/or system running on that device. This data is again used to help us diagnose problems with the site and/or mobile apps and analyze usage trends. This does not involve collecting any of your personal information.
World WebX may collect and use information regarding the geographic location of your devices. If the location data contains your personal information, then World WebX will treat this location data in accordance with this Policy. World WebX may collect and, on any page, display the total counts that page has been viewed. This includes User Profile pages.
Many companies offer programs that help you to visit websites anonymously. While World WebX will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.
World WebX is very concerned about your privacy and we will never provide your email address to a third party without your explicit permission, as detailed in the "Sharing Your Information" section below. World WebX may send out emails with World WebX-related news, products, offers, surveys or promotions.

However, please note that in all cases you will continue to receive all system emails (e.g. those regarding forgotten user passwords) and legal notices (e.g. updates to our policies) from us.

World WebX cookies do not collect personal information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or e-mail address is.
