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.
To enhance user experience and record session information, Word-Nerd may place a small text file called a “cookie” on a user's computer hard-drive, which users may examine and delete at any time.
An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to a computer whenever it is being used to surf the Web. Web servers automatically identify computers by their IP address.
