We may disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal processes, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena.  We may also disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request, or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Use, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our site and applicable laws or as otherwise required or permitted by law or consistent with legal requirements.  In addition, we may transfer personally identifiable information about you if we, or one of our business units, are acquired by, sold to, or merged with another company.  Agents and contractors who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for us.

We may on occasion combine information we receive online with outside records to enhance our ability to market to you those products or services that may be of interest to you.  If you have signed up to receive our e-mails and prefer not to receive marketing information from this site, you may let us know this by following the ”unsubscribe” instructions provided on any marketing e‑mail you receive from this site.

Cookies & Web Beacons

To enhance your experience with the Site, many of our web pages use "cookies”.  Cookies are text files we place in your computer's browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering at the site. However, once you choose to furnish the site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.

We use cookies to understand site usage and to improve the content and offerings on our site. For example, we may use cookies to personalize your experience at our web pages (e.g. to recognize you by name when you return to our site), save your password in password-protected areas and enable you to use shopping carts on our site.  We also may use cookies to offer you products, programmes or services.

"Web beacons" or clear .gifs are small pieces of code placed on a web page to monitor the behaviour of, and collect data about, the visitors viewing a web page.  For example, web beacons can be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor viewing that page.  We may use web beacons on this site from time to time for this and other purposes.

Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites, Ad Servers, and Sponsors

From time to time, our Site may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours.  Visitors should consult these other sites' privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.  The Widescope Site covered by this Privacy Policy may sometimes offer content (e.g. contests, sweepstakes or promotions) that is sponsored by or cobranded with identified third parties.  By virtue of these relationships, the third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to participate in the Site activity.  We have no control over these third parties' use of this information.  

From time to time the Site may also use a reputable third party to present or serve the advertisements that you may see at its web pages.  These third party ad servers may use cookies, web beacons, clear .gifs or similar technologies to help present such advertisements, and to help measure and research the advertisements' effectiveness. The use of these technologies by these third party ad servers is subject to their own privacy policies and is not covered by our privacy policy.  

Security Measures

We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access to your personally identifiable information, maintain data security and correctly use the information we collect online.

In order to protect the integrity of the password system, members should refrain from disclosing passwords and immediately change any passwords that may have been compromised.

Widescope will never ask you for your password by e-mail, so members and their employees should not respond to unsolicited e-mail requests asking for password information even if such requests appear to be from Widescope.

Please be advised that no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secured. Widescope is committed to protecting users' personal information, but cannot guarantee or warrant the security of this information when it is sent to or through the Site. Transmission of such information is therefore at the risk of the user.
