Wildstock, Inc. ("Wildstock," "we," or "our") recognizes the importance of your personal privacy.
The information we collect and why we collect it;
How we use that information;
How we share information; and
The choices we offer.
1. PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT.
You may be required to submit certain personally identifiable information when you register on the Service. The personally identifiable information which you may provide to us could include your email, name, gender, birthday, payment information, phone number, social media handles, and other personal information. For contributors (as identified on our Website), registration information may also include verification of your identity with a government issued ID and your tax forms, such as IRS Forms W-8 or W-9 required for tax purposes.
You may always choose not to provide personal information, but if you so choose, certain products and services may not be available to you.
As is true of most websites, when you access our Service, we may automatically collect non-personally identifiable information from you, such as IP host address, web pages viewed, browser type, operating system, referring service, search information, device type, page views, usage and browsing habits on the Service and similar data. We may also aggregate demographic information collected from our users (such as the number of users in a particular geographical location) in a manner which does not identify any one individual. We may also aggregate information collected offline in connection with the Service, obtain non-personally identifiable information from third party sources and develop aggregate information by anonymizing previously collected personally identifiable information.
It is possible at times when collecting non-personally identifiable information through automatic means that we may unintentionally collect or receive personally identifiable information that is mixed in with the non-personally identifiable information. While we will make reasonable efforts to prevent such incidental data collection, the possibility still exists. If you believe that we have inadvertently collected your personal information, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
2. INFORMATION USAGE.
We will only use your personally identifiable information as described below, unless you have specifically consented to another type of use, either at the time the personally identifiable information is collected from you or through some other form of consent from you or notification to you. We may use your disclose your personally identifiable information as follows:
to respond to your inquires or requests.
verify users' identities for security purposes;
Provide, maintain and improve our services;
Provide and deliver products and services you request, process transactions and send you related information, including confirmations and invoices;

Non- personally identifiable or aggregate information may be used by us for any purposes permitted by law and may be shared with any number of parties, provided that such information shall not specifically identify you.
3. Information Sharing.
We may share your personally identifiable information collected in connection with providing the Service in accordance with the Upload Agreement.
We may share your personally identifiable information with third parties to further the purpose for which you provided such information to us. For example, we may share your information with PayPal, Stripe, Square or another payment processor, as necessary for processing your purchases made online via the Service. We urge you to read the privacy practices of PayPal, Stripe, and Square before submitting any personally identifiable information through the Service.
We may disclose personally identifiable information as required by law or legal process.
We may disclose personally identifiable information to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, or the terms or policies for our services or our sponsors.
We may transfer your personally identifiable information in connection with the sale or merger or change of control of Wildstock or the division responsible for the services with which your personally identifiable information is associated.
We may share your personally identifiable information with an affiliate of Wildstock who is in the same corporate family as us as long as their privacy practices are substantially similar to ours.
5. Automatically Collected Information.
When you access the Service or open one of our HTML emails, we may automatically record certain information from your system by using cookies and other types of tracking technologies. This "automatically collected" information may include Internet Protocol address ("IP Address"), a unique user ID, device type, device identifiers, browser types and language, referring and exit pages, platform type, version of software installed, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Service, the number of clicks, the amount of time spent on pages, the dates and times that you visit the Service, and other similar information. Depending on the law of your country of residence, your IP address may legally be considered personally identifiable information.
6. Analytics and Conversion Tracking.
We also use Google conversion tracking and/or similar services to help us understand your and other users’ use of the Service.
The security of your personally identifiable information is very important to us. When we collect your personally identifiable information online, we use reasonable efforts to protect it from unauthorized access. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that your personally identifiable information will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers and your use of our Service demonstrates your assumption of this risk. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. We use secure socket layer technology (SSL) for specific types of information, such as your login and payment information. Only those employees who need access to your information in order to perform their duties are authorized to have access to your personally identifiable information. For more information on protecting your privacy, please visit www.ftc.gov/privacy .
8. Your Disclosures In Blogs And Other Social Media.
Please be aware that personally identifiable information which you voluntarily include and transmit online on the Service in a publicly accessible area, blog, chat room, social media platform or otherwise online, or that you share in an open forum such as an in-person panel or survey, may be viewed and used by others outside of Wildstock’s control. We are unable to control such uses of your personally identifiable information, and by using the Service or any other online services you assume the risk that the personally identifiable information provided by you may be viewed and used by third parties for any number of purposes.
9. Protection for Children.
We generally do not collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If at any time in the future we plan to collect personally identifiable information from children under 13, such collection and use, to the extent applicable, shall, when required, be done in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and appropriate consent from the child’s parent or guardian will be sought where required by COPPA. When we become aware that personally identifiable information from a child under 18 has been collected without such child’s parent or guardian’s consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.
10. Other Services.
As a convenience to you, we may provide links to third-party Services from within our Service. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these third-party sites. When you link away from our Service, you do so at your own risk.
12. Opt-Out Process.
13. Communications with Wildstock.
