    WWGOA contracts with other companies to provide certain services on our behalf, including credit card processing, shipping, e-mail distribution, and promotions management. We provide these companies only with the information they need to perform their services, and they are permitted to use the information only for that specific purpose or as required by law, unless any additional use or sharing of the information is separately permitted under another provision of this Privacy Policy.
  • Promotional Uses
    WWGOA may use your personally identifiable information to provide you with promotional information about activities, services and products offered by us or selected third parties, whose products or services are complementary to what we sell.

    If you provide us with your postal address, we may include that address in postal address lists that we sell or rent to third parties. However, we will not share your e-mail address with third parties for promotional purposes unless you consent to such sharing by affirmatively agreeing to it. If you would like us to stop including your postal address in such lists, please send us a letter as explained in the section entitled ‘Your Choices.’ If we receive such a letter from you, we will act as promptly as possible to remove your postal address from future postal address lists that we sell or rent to third parties.

    WWGOA may disclose any user or customer information, including personally identifiable information, when we believe that doing so is required by law; may be necessary to protect the property, rights, or safety of ourselves, visitors to our websites, or other persons; or will help to enforce any terms of use or contest, sweepstakes, promotions, games or other rules. It may also be necessary to disclose our customers’ personally identifiable information to third parties, such as credit card companies, to help resolve disputes that arise in the ordinary course of business. WWGOA may also transfer user or customer information, including personally identifiable information, in connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale.

  • Browser Level Information and IP Addresses
    When you make use of our site, we may gather information regarding your access time and your computer design, as well as the type of browser software you use and your internet Protocol (‘IP’) address. The IP address is a number that is used by computers connected to the Internet to classify your computer so that data can be sent to you. Your IP address does not give us any personal information. We will use this specific address to collect information to see how long a user may spend on our site and which pages or features are more interesting; this will help us recognize our audience’s ‘likes’ and verify the importance of advertising on our website.

  • Credit Card
    WWGOA uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology for all online transaction, which encrypts sensitive information you input before it is sent over the Internet. We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card number when confirming an order. However, your entire credit card number is transmitted to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. Orders placed on this website will appear on your credit card statement as Product Programs.
