WriteArgument Privacy Notice
WriteArgument knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. By visiting WriteArgument, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.
What Personal Information About Users Does WriteArgument Gather?
The information we learn from users helps us personalize and continually improve your experience at WriteArgument. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future browsing for you, improving our site, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses WriteArgument or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of WriteArgument on other Web sites.
E-mail Communications: We try to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our users.
Mobile: When you download or use apps created by WriteArgument, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device, including a unique identifier for your device. We may use this information to provide you with location-based services, such as advertising, local showtimes, search results, and other personalized content. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services. For more information about how to do this, click here.
Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.
What About Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as Creating a Debate, Discussion or Poll and browsing preferences.
Does WriteArgument Share the Information It Receives?
Information about our users is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others.
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy additional services or business units. In such transactions, user information generally is transferred along with the rest of the service or business unit. Also, in the event that WriteArgument, Inc., or substantially all of its assets are acquired, user information will of course be included in the transaction.
Protection of WriteArgument and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of WriteArgument, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will always receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
What About Third-Party Advertisers?
Our site includes third-party advertising and links to other websites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party websites.
WriteArgument also displays personalized third-party advertising based on personal information about users, such as information you submit to us about your custom website names. Although WriteArgument does not provide any personal information to advertisers, advertisers (including ad-serving companies) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized advertisement meet their criteria to personalize the ad (for example, users in the northwestern United States who bought, watched, or browsed for romantic comedies). If you do not want us to use personal information that we gather to allow third parties to personalize advertisements we display to you, please adjust your Advertising Preferences.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
What Choices and Access Do I Have?
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to take advantage of such WriteArgument features as uploading your favorite website name and logo.
You can add or update certain information, such as your e-mail address, by using our User Administration pages. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records.
If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. (If you do not want to receive legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Notice, those notices will still govern your use of WriteArgument, and it is your responsibility to review them for changes.)
If you do not want us to use personal information that we gather to allow third parties to personalize advertisements we display to you, please adjust your Advertising Preferences.
WriteArgument is not intended for use by children under the age of 13. If you are under 13, you may not submit information about yourself to WriteArgument.
Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions
If you choose to visit WriteArgument, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Terms and Conditions of Use, including limitations on damages, resolution of disputes, and application of the law of the state of Missouri.
If you have any concern about privacy at WriteArgument, please send us a thorough description and we will try to resolve it.
Our business changes constantly. This Notice and the Terms and Conditions of Use will change also, and use of information that we gather now is subject to the Privacy Notice in effect at the time of use. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
