Wildcard works & Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. We like to go wild but we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
In our social networking products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, kept private, and permanently deleted.
Incorporating these goals:
Wildcard (“Wildcard”) operates several website/API/apps plus an API including https://wildcardworks.com and https://wildcard.works. It is Wildcard’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating these website/API/apps, services and ‘application programming interfaces’ (API).
Website/API/app Visitors and users.
Like most website/API/app operators, Wildcard collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, operation system, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Wildcard’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Wildcard’s visitors and users use its website/API/app. From time to time, Wildcard may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website/API/app.
Wildcard also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, or location data like WiFI or GPS for logged in users.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information.
Certain visitors and users to Wildcard’s website/API/apps choose to interact with Wildcard in ways that require Wildcard to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Wildcard gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account on the Wildcard application to sign up and sign in using the Twitter Fabric API. In each case, Wildcard collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s or user’s interaction with Wildcard. Wildcard does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors and users can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website/API/app-related activities.
Wildcard may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors and users to its website/API/apps. For instance, Wildcard may monitor the users on website/API/apps. Wildcard may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Wildcard does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information.
Wildcard discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (1) need to know that information in order to process it on Wildcard’s behalf or to provide services available at Wildcard’s website/API/apps, and (2) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Wildcard’s website/API/apps, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Wildcard will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Wildcard discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Wildcard believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Wildcard, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Wildcard website/API/app and have supplied your email address or phone number, Wildcard may occasionally send you a text message to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Wildcard. We primarily use our various product blogs (“https://medium.com/@Wildcard”) to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email, tweet or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Wildcard takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Wildcard, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Wildcard goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Wildcard may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
