Do Not Track Disclosure.
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in their web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information we collect and that is why we provide the opt-out links above. However, we do not recognize or respond to any DNT signals, as the Internet industry works toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.
There are a number of places on our Service where you may click on a link to access other websites that do not operate under this Policy. These third-party websites may independently solicit and collect information, including personal data, from you and, in some instances, provide us with information about your activities on those websites. We recommend that you consult the privacy statements of all third-party websites you visit. We accept no responsibility or liability for these other websites.
We may from time to time ask you to provide information about your experiences, which will be used to measure and improve quality. You are at no time under any obligation to provide any of such data. Any and all information which is voluntarily submitted in feedback forms on Site or any survey that you accept to take part in is used for the purposes of reviewing this feedback and improving Whisp’s software, products and websites.
(5) YOUR CHOICES ABOUT USES AND DISCLOSURES OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our Service because such information may be required in order for you to register as user; purchase products or services; participate in a contest, promotion, survey, or sweepstakes; ask a question; or initiate other transactions.
You can also control information collected by cookies. You can delete or decline cookies by changing your browser settings.
(6) HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA AND OTHER INFORMATION
We take reasonable precaution to protect Personal Data from unauthorized access and disclosure.
