Information Collection and Use
WeComply is the sole owner of the aggregate information collected on its web site. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Although we make every effort to preserve your privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a court order or other legal process served on us. WeComply's mailing address is 344 Main Street, Suite 104, Mount Kisco, NY 10549; its telephone number is (914) 241-3675; its e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
WeComply provides online training to employee-users of our company customers. We contract with the companies to provide this service, and we will not use the personal information collected from the employee-users in a way different than contracted for. In order to use a training program on our site, employee-users must first complete a registration form, which requires them to provide their contact information, including their names and e-mail addresses at a minimum. Depending on what our company customers need for human-resource management and verification, we may also collect employee numbers, titles, departments, divisions, groups and/or work telephone numbers and extensions. This information is used only to track users' progress on the program or programs for which they registered and to report that information to their employers. Users are not asked to provide demographic information (such as income level and gender) or unique identifiers (such as Social Security numbers).
A cookie is a piece of data stored on a user's hard drive containing information about the user. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. We use session cookies on our site. Use of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information.
We use third party companies (such as Google Analytics) in order to collect non-personally identifiable information to compile aggregated statistics for us about visitors to our site.
Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We may tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.
Our Web site offers publicly accessible blogs or community forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. To request removal of your personal information from our blog or community forum, contact us at email@example.com. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
Social Media (Features) and Widgets
With your consent we may post your testimonial along with your name. If you want your testimonial removed please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do not collect or share aggregated demographic information with any partners or advertisers. We do, however, share the aforementioned personal information with company customers to verify employee-users' progress on the training programs.
WeComply's web site contains links to other sites, but WeComply is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every other site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by WeComply.
WeComply takes every precaution to protect user information both online and off-line. All such user information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer-service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers that we store user information on are kept in a secure environment.
If you have any questions about the security of our web site, please send us an e-mail.
Supplementation of Information
We do not supplement the information we receive from users with information from third-party sources.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information (such as one's e-mail address) changes, the user may correct or update that information by logging in and following the "Change my registration information" link, or by sending us an e-mail. We will respond to any such request within 30 days or less.
We will notify our company customers if and when user information is to be collected by any outside parties. We do this so employee-users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.
We occasionally send our company customers newsletters or other promotional communications. If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or by e-mailing us at email@example.com.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. [We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.]
Notification of Changes
If we are going to use your personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify you via e-mail. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post the notice, we will also e-mail users who have opted to receive communications from us to notify them of the changes in our privacy practices.

The information contained in this web site is provided only as general information that may or may not reflect the most current legal developments.
