Explicit Information Gathering
With respect to the WOW website, there are two options regarding your personal information. If you wish to contact WOW about its products or services, then you need to disclose your contact information so that WOW can service your request. Alternatively, if you do not wish to contact WOW about its products or services, then you will not need to disclose your contact information. You can examine WOWs entire public website (i.e., WOWs website excluding any extranet or other private network) without providing any information whatsoever. WOWs websites user-submitted forms (e.g., a request-for-more-information form or a joining-of-a-mailing-list form) require users to provide WOW with contact information. This information is used to provide information to those who inquire about WOWs products and services and to handle related business matters. This information is also used to get in touch with customers when necessary. From time to time, the information gathered through this website may be used to notify you about products and services that WOW believes will be of interest to you.
Covert Information Gathering
Precautions for Children
WOW does not attempt to collect personal information from children under thirteen (13) years of age. If a child sends personal information to WOW, and this information can be identified as originating from a child, the information will be deleted. WOW cannot always determine which information originates with a user that is a child. WOW does not maintain databases about children.
When you disclose personal information to WOW that information remains with WOW. The only exception involves disclosure to governmental authorities according to normal business practice (e.g., for the collection of taxes or according to the orders of a court in responding to a subpoena or search warrant). WOW does not sell, rent, trade, lend, or otherwise transfer such personal information to affiliates, subsidiaries, sister companies, holding companies, parent companies, strategic partners, or any other party.
