Information Sharing and Disclosure

WTSG! does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies except to provide products or services you've requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:
  1. We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with WTSG! under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use your personal information to help WTSG! communicate with you about offers from WTSG! and our marketing partners. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.
  2. We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims;
  3. We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of WTSG!'s terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.
  4. We transfer information about you if WTSG! is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, WTSG! will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

 

WTSG! displays targeted advertisements based on personal information. Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click on targeted ads meet the targeting criteria - for example, women ages 18-24 from a particular geographic area.

 

  1. WTSG! does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.
  2. WTSG! advertisers include financial service providers (such as banks, insurance agents, stock brokers and mortgage lenders) and non-financial companies (such as stores, airlines, and software companies).
WTSG! works with vendors, partners, advertisers, and other service providers in different industries and categories of business. For more information regarding providers of products or services that you've requested please read our detailed reference links.

 

Cookies

  1. WTSG! lets other companies that show advertisements on some of our pages set and access their cookies on your computer. Other companies' use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to WTSG!'s cookies.

 

Confidentiality and Security

  1. We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs.
  2. We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect personal information about you.
