As used in this policy, the terms “using” and “processing” information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including without limitation collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization or among our affiliates.
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve the Service, the Site and the related features and content, and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site. Below are the types and categories of information we collect and how we use that information.
Log Data. When you visit the Site or use the Service, whether as a registered user or a non-registered visitor, (any of these, a “WhatBench User”), our servers automatically record information about your use of the Service and your visit to the Site (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser type, the web page you were visiting immediately prior to visiting our Site, pages of our Site that you visited, the time spent on those pages, information you searched for on our Site, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site and the Service and for the Site’s technical administration, to improve our Site’s functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor it to our visitors’ needs.
If you choose to refer us to another potential user of our Site or Service, and provide us with the potential user’s name and email address, we may send the potential user an email inviting him or her to visit the Site. WhatBench stores this information for the sole purpose of sending such email and tracking the success of any such referral program. Any such potential user of the Site may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we remove this information from our database.
Identity theft and the practice known as “phishing” are of great concern to WhatBench. We make it a priority to safeguard your Personal Information to help protect you from identity theft. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your account ID, or login password in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.
Other than as described in this section, WhatBench does not rent or share information about you with third parties without your consent.
Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information. We may share aggregated information that does not include Personal Information and we may otherwise disclose Non-Identifying Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.
Service Providers. We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf and to perform Site-related services (“Service Providers”). The types of Service Providers we use include, without limitation, service providers that provide the following types of services: credit card transactions, accounting, customer relationship management, webcasting, website maintenance, database management, web analytics and web and live chat hosting. Our Service Providers have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement. WhatBench cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including without limitation subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of WhatBench or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal or unethical. Business Transfers. WhatBench may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy.

All WhatBench registered users may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in their registration profile by logging into their account and following the instructions on the Site. If you completely delete all such information, then your account will become deactivated.
WhatBench takes seriously the safeguarding of your information. We employ generally-accepted, industry-standard administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your Personal Information submitted to us from unauthorized access. However, no method of electronic data storage is 100% secure and we therefore cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Our Site may contain links to other websites. If you choose to visit a third-party website from our Site by clicking on a link, you will be directed to that third party’s website. The fact that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.
