WC News is committed to establishing and maintaining a trusting relationship with www.wc-news.com visitors. We take our visitors privacy seriously and are committed to complying with all applicable privacy laws. However, in order to maintain our web site, we must collect from customers certain personally identifiable information. We will not be shared, resell, reused in lists any personally identifiable information collected from you to any other parties or be used for any other purpose.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
Cookies and Web Beacons
We also use third party advertisements on www.wc-news.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York related ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing fun ads to someone who frequents fun sites).
DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx
If, as our customer, you feel we can do more to maintain your privacy, please let us know. Any feedback you provide to help us meet your expectations in this regard is highly appreciated.
