INFORMATION COLLECTION

 

  • Information You Provide

We collect information from you when you choose to provide it to us, such as when you contact WMC Global or a WMC Global affiliated company, or otherwise with your consent. WMC Global and its affiliates may share this information with each other and use it consistent with this Policy. They may also combine it with other information collected from and about you to provide and improve our products, services, content, and advertising. If you refuse to provide any requested information (whether or not required), you may not be able to take full advantage of the Site and its features.

 

For example, when you choose to contact us via the Site, we may collect your name, email address, telephone number, company, or any other information you choose to provide in the content of the message.

 

  • Information Automatically Collected – Cookies and Other Technologies

We may use cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, or other technologies to automatically or passively collect certain information when you use the Site or interact with our applications, email messages, and advertisements. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of the Site people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches.

 

For example, we may gather some information automatically or passively and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We may use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the Site, to learn about user behavior on the Site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. WMC Global also may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.

 

In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the WMC Global Site. When you click one of these URLs, you pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our Site. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.

 

Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.
