It is WOSMA policy that personal information which you provide, including your name, mailing and email address, is private and confidential and will be maintained as such by WOSMA. The personal information you provide is stored in a secure location accessible only by designated WOSMA staff, and is used only for the purposes for which you provide the information (such as your request to be added to the WOSMA mailing list). If you also indicate on our site that you would like to receive information about other WOSMA programs or membership, your personal information will be added to the appropriate WOSMA mailing list. If at any time you decide to add or remove your name from WOSMA’s mailing list, or you need to amend your personal information, please email us at .
No Release of Information to Third Parties
We will not release personal information to third parties except to further the purpose for which you provide that information; for example, if you need a question answered by an expert outside WOSMA, or if the release of your information is required by law or is pertinent to judicial or governmental investigations or proceedings.
WOSMA may also release personal information to appropriate governmental authorities under the following circumstances:
Where release is required by law (for example, a subpoena) or regulation, or is requested by a government agency conducting investigations or proceedings;
Where our records indicate a company may be engaged in fraudulent activity or other deceptive practices that a governmental agency should be made aware of; or
Where your communication suggests possible harm to others.
No Computer Tracking of Identifiable Information
Our website is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information about its visitors. It recognizes the home servers of visitors, but not email addresses. For example, we may know which internet service providers our visitors use, but not the names, addresses or other information about our visitors that would allow us to identify who our visitors are. The information we have access to is used only for internal purposes by WOSMA technical support staff. No personal information is collected.
Our website tracks information about visits to it. For example, we may compile statistics showing the daily number of visitors to our site, the daily requests we receive for particular files on our site, and which countries those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used internally to better provide services to the public and may also be provided to others, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather any such information.
WOSMA’s Commitment to Online Security
Physical, electronic and managerial procedures have been employed to safeguard the security and integrity of personal information. Billing information is encrypted whenever transmitted or received online. Personal information is accessible only by staff or volunteers designated to handle online complaints or requests.
