Privacy Policy

This privacy statement provides the Wake Up Foundation’s (WUF) policy regarding the nature, purpose, use, and sharing of any information collected via this website and describes how WUF uses and protects personally identifiable information.

This privacy statement constitutes the entire agreement between you and WUF relating to the publicly accessible portions of our website. By your use of our website, you consent to be governed by this privacy statement.

We will not make personal information available to anyone other than our employees and we will never use your personal information for marketing purpose and/or share it with third parties.
WUF will not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease any personal information collected online or offline. All information shall be kept absolutely confidential unless given consent to by the user.
We collect and temporarily store certain technical information about your visit for use in website management and security purposes. This information includes:

  • Personal information
  • Information collected for tracking and customisation (cookies)
  • Automatically collected information

Personal information

We collect personal information from you when you affirmatively open an account through the registration process and are requested to provide a name and email. While we highly encourage participants to fully identify themselves by their real name to ensure a frank exchange of ideas, we offer the possibility to participants to choose to abbreviate their name or to use a pseudonym.

WUF will use your personal data only for the purpose for which you’ve given permission.

We will not make personal information available to anyone other than our employees and we will never use your personal information for marketing purpose and/or share it with third parties.

WUF will not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease any personal information collected online or offline. All information shall be kept absolutely confidential unless given consent to by the user.

Information collected for tracking and customisation (Cookies)

You may visit our website anonymously. Except as described in this privacy statement, we do not collect identification data of our visitors.

We do, however, use cookies (small computer files that stay on your computer and let us know when and how often you visit our website) to keep and track general information about website usage. Cookies do not identify the individual user, just the computer used.

Cookies and other similar technology can make it easier for you to use the website during future visits. Cookies only record which areas of the website have been visited by the computer in question, and for how long. This information allows WUF to understand how our website is being used so we can assess how well it is working and to help us make decisions about how to improve it.

Allowing us to create a cookie does not give us access to the rest of your computer and we will not use cookies to track your online activity once you leave our website. Cookies are read only by the server that placed them, and are unable to execute any code or virus.

There are two types of cookies, session and persistent. Session cookies last only as long as your web browser is open. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for longer periods of time. WUF uses session and persistent cookies. However, at no time is your Personal Information, whether stored in persistent cookies or elsewhere, shared with third parties who have no right to that information.

If you do not wish to have cookies stored on your computer you can easily change your web browser to refuse them, or to let you know when you get a new cookie. Please refer to your browser instructions to learn more about these functions. Refusing cookies, however, can restrict your use of our website. To enjoy the website to the full we recommend you leave cookies switched on.

Automatically collected information

We collect and store certain technical information about your visit for use in website management and security purposes. This information includes: The Internet domain from which you access our website (for example, “xcompany.com” if you use a private Internet access account, or “yourschool.edu” if you connect from an educational domain); The IP address (a unique number for each computer connected to the Internet) from which you access our website; The type of browser (e.g. Chrome, Internet Explorer) and the operating system (e.g. Windows) used to access our site; The date and time you access our site; The URLs of the pages you visit; Your username, if it was used to log in to the website; and If you visited this website from another website, the URL of the forwarding site.
This information is used to help us make our website more useful for you. With this data we learn about the number of visitors to our website and the types of technology our visitors use. Except for authorised law enforcement investigations, no attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits. Raw data logs are retained temporarily as required for security and website management purposes only.

Links

Throughout our web pages, we provide links to other servers and websites which may contain information of interest to our readers. We take no responsibility (and shall have no liability) for, and exercise no control over, the organisations, views, or accuracy of the information contained on other servers and/or websites.

Legal disclaimer

Though we take industry standard measures and other efforts to preserve user privacy, WUF may need to disclose personal information (including personally identifiable information) when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process, and/or in connection with a verified request relating to criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity.

Website security notice

For site security purposes and to ensure that our website remains available to all users, this computer system employs software programs that monitor network traffic to identify unauthorised attempts to upload or change information. Anyone using this system expressly consents to such monitoring and is advised that if such monitoring reveals evidence of possible abuse or criminal activity, such evidence may be provided to appropriate law enforcement officials. Unauthorised attempts to upload or change information on our servers are strictly prohibited and may be punishable by law.

Updates to our privacy policy

We will revise or update this policy if our practices change, or as we develop better ways to keep you informed about them. Please refer to this page for the latest information and the effective date of any changes. If we decide to change this policy, we will post a new policy on our site and change the date at the bottom. Changes to the policy shall not apply retroactively.
