Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy:

The Wisdom Journal ("The Wisdom Journal") operates thewisdomjournal.com and may operate other websites. It is The Wisdom Journal's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, The Wisdom Journal collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Wisdom Journal's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Wisdom Journal's visitors use its website. From time to time, The Wisdom Journal may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

The Wisdom Journal also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on thewisdomjournal.com blogs/sites. The Wisdom Journal only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to The Wisdom Journal's websites choose to interact with The Wisdom Journal in ways that require The Wisdom Journal to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Wisdom Journal gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at thewisdomjournal.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with The Wisdom Journal are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The Wisdom Journal collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with The Wisdom Journal. The Wisdom Journal does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

The Wisdom Journal may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. The Wisdom Journal may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Wisdom Journal does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The Wisdom Journal discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on The Wisdom Journal's behalf or to provide services available at The Wisdom Journal's websites, and (ii) 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 The Wisdom Journal's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Wisdom Journal 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, The Wisdom Journal discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Wisdom Journal believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Wisdom Journal, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an The Wisdom Journal website and have supplied your email address, The Wisdom Journal may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with The Wisdom Journal and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email 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. The Wisdom Journal takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
