Waxxi will never share any of your personal information, except for the information you elect to disclose within the Waxxi community (on the Waxxi website or to Waxxi event participants), with any third parties for marketing purposes.
Waxxi users who have questions or concerns regarding this statement should email Waxxi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to become a Waxxi member, you must first create an account on Waxxiĺ─˘s web site. To create an account you are required to provide the following contact information: name, email address, URL (if appropriate), city country, ZIP/postal code, a brief profile summary, and choose a password.
Once a Waxxi member, you may provide additional information in the Profile section describing your background and professional expertise. Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration is entirely optional, but enables you to better identify yourself and find new opportunities in the Waxxi system.
Information about your Contacts
In order to invite others to connect with you directly in Waxxi, you will enter their names and email addresses. This information will be used by Waxxi to send your invitation including a message that you write. The names and email addresses of people that you invite will be used only to send your invitation and reminders.
Cookies & Log Files
One type of cookie, known as a ĺ─˙persistentĺ─¨ cookie, is set once youĺ─˘ve logged in to your Waxxi account. The next time you visit the Waxxi web site, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing user so you will not need to log in before using the service. In order to access or change any of your private information (like a credit card number), however, you must log in securely again with your password even if your computer contains your persistent cookie. Additionally, if you log out of the Waxxi site you will need to re-enter your password the next time you visit in order to log in to your account. Another type of cookie, called a ĺ─˙sessionĺ─¨ cookie, is used to identify a particular visit to the Waxxi site. Session cookies expire after a short time or when you close your web browser.
Due to the communications standards on the Internet, when you visit the Waxxi web site we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave Waxxi. We also receive the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, as well as the name of your ISP. This information is used to analyze overall trends to help us improve the Waxxi service. The linkage between your IP address and your personally identifiable information is never shared with third-parties without your permission or except when required by law.
We allow other companies, called ad networks, to serve advertisements to Waxxi users. Ad networks include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. Waxxi may ĺ─˙targetĺ─¨ some ads to users that fit a certain general profile ĺ─ţ for example, ĺ─˙software engineers in Illinois.ĺ─¨ Waxxi does NOT use personally identifiable information to target ads.
To deliver these ads properly, Waxxi may include a file, called a web beacon, from these ad networks within pages served by Waxxi so the networks may provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for advertisers as well as to target ads to you while you visit other websites.
Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad networkĺ─˘s servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.
These general targets may also be used by ad networks to display targeted ads on other websites as a substitute for random, irrelevant ads. You will never see additional ads as a result of being a Waxxi user and Waxxi never provides personally identifiable information to any advertiser nor any third party.
You may opt-out of use of Web beacons in Waxxi pages that you view and of placement of a cookie by ad networks in your browser. To opt-out click here and go to the ĺ─˙Advertisingĺ─¨ section at the bottom and change the setting there to ĺ─˙Noĺ─¨.
If you opt-out you will lose the potential benefit of receiving ads that are more targeted to your interests.
Children are not eligible to use our service and we ask that minors (under the age of 18) do not submit any personal information to us or use the service.
Waxxi is an online service offering interactive podcasts enabling people globally to be a part of the conversation, or the podcast, versus just listening to it. Several groups will be formed within the Waxxi community based on the topics of the interactive podcasts and by suggestion of our members. Waxxiĺ─˘s events, both virtual and face to face, and its global online community will enable professionals across industries to more effectively connect with one another. The personally identifiable you choose to provide on this site is used to help you describe yourself to other users. Other information, that does not personally identify you as an individual, is collected by Waxxi from the site (for example, utilization patterns) and is exclusively owned by Waxxi. This information can be utilized by Waxxi in such manner as Waxxi, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate.
Communications with Waxxi
Waxxi will communicate with you through email and notices posted on this website. These include a series of up to six welcome emails which help inform new users about various features of the service. Please be aware that you will always receive certain emails from Waxxi related to the proper functioning of your account. Waxxi may send you promotional information unless you have opted out of receiving such information. If you wish to opt-out of receiving promotional emails, please send a request to email@example.com.
Information you provide at registration or in your Profile section is also used to customize your experience on the web site. For example, when you login to your account we will display the screen names of new users who have recently joined your group(s).
Sharing Information With Third Parties:
Waxxi takes the privacy of our users very seriously. We will never sell, rent, or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to any third parties for marketing purposes. We will only share your personally identifiable with third parties to carry out your instructions and to provide specific services. For instance, we use a credit card processing company to bill users for subscription fees. These third parties do not retain, share, or store any personally identifiable information except to provide these services and are bound by strict confidentiality agreements which limit their use of such information.
Waxxi offers a ĺ─˙web profileĺ─¨ feature which allows users to publish portions of their Waxxi profile, including your ĺ─˙nameĺ─¨, but not your ĺ─˙email addressĺ─¨ to the public Internet. Users may opt-out of this feature, however Waxxi does not warrant how third-party search engines will update their cache.
We may provide aggregated data about the usage of our services to third-parties for such purposes as we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate. We may segment our users by role (i.e. product managers, vice presidents), industry, geographic location, company. If you would like to be excluded from the aggregated research or products based upon aggregated data about our usersĺ─˘ activities on the site, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Partnering with Other Organizations to Offer Combined Services:
Waxxi partners with other online services to give you the combined results of both services. For example we partner with SimplyHired.com to let you use their services to find jobs and then to use Waxxi to find trusted referrals to those jobs. Whenever we offer such combined services it will be your choice to make use of the combined services or not. In these cases, your personally identifiable information will only be passed from Waxxi to the partner if you choose to use the combined service.
Communications Between Users
Many emails you initiate through Waxxi, an invitation sent to a non-user for instance, will list your email address and name in the header of the message. Emails you initiate may also provide aggregate information about your network (for instance how many people are in your network), but will never list the people to whom youĺ─˘re directly connected. Other communications that you initiate through the Waxxi website, like a request for contact, will list your name as the initiator but will not include your personal contact information. Your contact information will only be shared with another user if both of you have indicated that you would like to establish contact with each other.
It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information when required by law. We will disclose such information wherein we have a good-faith belief that it is necessary to comply with a court order, ongoing judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on our company or to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
Accessing and Changing Your Account Information
In order to secure your personal information, all communications between you and the Waxxi website, while logged in, are protected through secure socket layer (SSL) encryption. Additionally, private information like your address or credit card number can be accessed only by providing your password.
