We at World Class Catamarans, “WCC”, are committed to safeguarding your privacy — especially in regards to the personal and business information you supply. That’s why at WCC we use the information you supply us to serve you better.
We will not sell the information collected when you visit our web site, www.worldcat.com, to parties outside WCC, its affiliates, subsidiaries and other related entities, or people who want to send you junk e-mail. If you choose to become a member of the WCC Network and utilize the WCC Software Applications through the WCC website we will use reasonable efforts to ensure your personal and business information is protected once we receive your transmission. If you transact business with one of our service providers or a network vendor (collectively, the “transaction partners”), we may need to send that transaction partner limited information from your profile, such as your name and address. We will only send the information needed to complete your transaction and will work with transaction partners who agree to abide by the same or similar privacy rules that we have adopted for WCC. However, WCC has no control over and accepts no liability for these transaction partners and their respective privacy and/or use policies.
We may release additional profile information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with law, (ii) enforce or apply the terms of any of our membership agreements, or (iii) protect the rights, property, or safety of WCC, our users, or our transaction partners. In addition, we use “cookies” (small pieces of information stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive) to let you use our services more easily and to let us keep track of certain statistical information that helps us improve our web site.
At WCC we have adopted a comprehensive set of security measures. Specifically, any financial data you supply is kept confidential in an electronic, encrypted state. In addition, any confidential data coming to us or going to our transaction partners travels in an encrypted, electronic form. WCC strives to protect your information and privacy, but WCC cannot guarantee the security of any information that you disclose online or be responsible for any loss, misuse or alteration of any such information. Therefore, you transmit all such information at your own risk. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords you set up and/or any account information.
Your profile information will be used to create personalized content and services from our WCC web site. In addition, WCC and its licensees may use aggregated information from profiles to provide our transaction partners with information that will help them, and thereby us, to serve you better. The WCC web site may include links and/or ad banners to other websites. While we support the protection of privacy on the Internet, WCC cannot be responsible for the actions of third parties. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such linked websites, and expressly disclaim all responsibility and liability with respect to them. We encourage you to read the posted privacy statement whenever interacting with any linked web site.
You should remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, such as on message boards, through e-mails, discussion groups, or in chat areas (collectively, the “public areas”), your information can be collected and used by others. Although WCC tries to protect your personal information, WCC cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you disclose in public areas of the WCC web site.
