Privacy Policy

General Policy

Word-Nerd understands the importance users of this Website place on the confidentiality and privacy of such user’s personal and/or private information. Word-Nerd uses such information for its internal processes only and does not disclose such information to unauthorized persons or entities, unless otherwise agreed to by an applicable user. Word-Nerd recognizes and complies with applicable personal information privacy laws and collects information only for the purpose of registering its users and maintaining the accounts of its users. Word-Nerd neither sells nor discloses such information to any unaffiliated party for commercial purposes. If any user decides to terminate or otherwise inactivate its account, Word-Nerd continues to adhere to the privacy policies and practices described herein with respect to the personal information collected during the term of the service.

Information Collection and Use by Word-Nerd

Word-Nerd collects certain personally identifying information regarding a user pursuant to the voluntary registration process for the Website. Such information includes, but is not limited to, name, age, email address, city and state, and payment information. Word-Nerd uses this voluntary data to (a) authenticate users, (b) receive payment for registration, and (c) send notifications to users relating to the Website. Under no circumstances is any of this voluntary data revealed to other users or disclosed to third parties, with the exception of third-party vendors used to process registration payments. Credit card and other payment information is transmitted safely over the internet in encrypted form and is not stored or saved by Word-Nerd. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Unfortunately, security and safeguards are not 100% effective, but given the currently available technology, Word-Nerd agrees to use best efforts to employ up to date and adequate security measures to protect its users’ personal information.

Users must provide Word-Nerd, at a minimum, with a valid email address in order to complete the voluntary registration process. Email addresses are used to send notifications related to the Website and are never disclosed to third parties under any circumstances.

If Word-Nerd is required by applicable law or regulation or by legal process to make any disclosure otherwise prohibited hereunder, Word-Nerd will provide the user with prompt notice of such requirement prior to disclosure. Word-Nerd agrees to furnish only that portion of the personal information that, in the advice of our counsel, Word-Nerd is legally compelled to disclose and to use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain confidential treatment of such information disclosed.

Confidentiality

Word-Nerd will not knowingly disclose personally identifying information to third parties except as described herein. Word-Nerd agrees (i) to keep user personal information confidential and not to disclose any such information to any person or entity other than those employed or retained by Word-Nerd who have a legitimate need to know such information for the purpose of evaluating the user’s account information or in accordance with the terms of use of the Website, (ii) to use such information solely for the purposes described herein or reasonably related to the terms of the Website, and (iii) not to disclose to any person or entity other than as otherwise described herein any information about the user.
