For the purpose of this agreement and for ease of use, any reference to “the Business” shall be a reference to “WSF 2018” and any reference to “the Website” shall be a reference to any and all websites owned by the Business, their respective products, and their employees and agents.

“WSF 2018” without notice. Your use of any “WSF 2018” Website after any changes are implemented constitutes your acceptance of the changes. As a result, we encourage you to consult the terms and conditions herein frequently.
We have a few fundamental principles:
WE DO NOT actively collect sensitive information about you, including information about your health, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or criminal history. We will take steps to appropriately protect any sensitive information we do receive.
WE DO NOT share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our service and products, or protect our rights.
WE DO NOT store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation and delivery of our services to you.
We store personal information only for as long as we have a reason to keep it.
TYPE OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Like most website operators, we collect (via its Websites) non-personally identifying
information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.
Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our Websites.
We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We do not use such information to identify our visitors, and do not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information, as described above.
Certain visitors to our Websites choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information like email address, name and surname (to name some). The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction.
We collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our Websites.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
We disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at our Websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.
Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using our Websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
We will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personallyidentifying information to anyone. Other than to our employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, we disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information, only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of “WSF 2018”, third parties or the public at large.
HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
If you are a registered user of any of our Websites and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new products, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with us and in the industry.
We are committed to delivering only information and training we deem will be relevant and of benefit to you. We expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.
We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
We may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to our websites. We may display this information publicly but will not disclose personally identifying information other than as described above.
