Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
WTH Foods are and shall not be responsible for the content and/or the privacy policies of websites to which the website may link.
Use of your personal information
Your personal information is collected when you place an order or create an account for the purposes of processing and documentation, statistics and marketing, and as reference in our future communications with you. Also, collecting this information serves as a way to limit abuse of the system, as it helps us detect duplicate or “shill” accounts. Your personal information is never displayed publicly. We require that you provide your account name or “handle” to be listed with your submissions.
When you create an account or place an order online, we will ask for your street address, city, state/region, zip code, country, email address and contact number. We may use this information to contact you in the unlikely event that we need to get in touch and your contact number or email address is not working. We will ask your first and last names.
WTH Foods may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on WTHFOODS.PH; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of WTHFOODS.PH, or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of WTHFOODS.PH or its designees, users of forum and/or the services associated with forum, or members of the public.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Control and rights to your data and personal information
When you create an account, or otherwise give us personal information, WTHFOODS.PH will not share that information with third parties without your permission, apart from the limited exceptions already listed. Registering also allows you to tell us how you want WTHFOODS.PH to communicate with you. We may send out periodic emails informing you of technical service or security issues related to the forum or the services provided, or confirming your registration.
We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. In WTHFOODS.PH you can view and edit personal information you have already given us.
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Security of your personal information
WTH Foods are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
When you provide us with personal information or place an order, it is done through a Secure Server. One of today’s most advanced security systems – Secure Socket Layers (SSL) – encrypts all information you provide before sending it to our own server. Only when it reaches the WTHFOODS.PH servers is your information decrypted.
If you have questions regarding this policy, please contact WTH Foods through our email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WTH Foods will occasionally update this privacy. When we do, we will also revise the “last updated” date of the Privacy Statement.
