How does WCS collect Personal Data?

WCS will only collect Personal Data that Data Subject has voluntarily provided to WCS or have agreed to have provided to WCS. WCS will not collect any Personal Data about a Data Subject without advising the Data Subject accordingly (either by way of this Privacy Policy or by way of providing the Data Subject with some other form of notice at the time WCS is requesting or collecting Personal Data), why and how that Personal Data is being collected and how such Personal Data will be used or disclosed. WCS may collect Personal Data through a variety of means:

In addition, WCS may review and analyse a Data Subject’s use of products and services, to help him serve the Data Subject better, and to bring other products and services to the Data Subject’s attention, which WCS feel, will be of benefit to the Data Subject. WCS also collect and analyse information from other sources for the same purposes.

How WCS may disclose Personal Information

WCS does not sell any Personal Data it collects to third parties. WCS may share Personal Data with its affiliates, subsidiaries, employees, contractors and agents in the course of providing a Data Subject with WCS’s business services, support, or the fulfilment or delivery of products or services of WCS.

WCS may disclose Personal Data if is required to do so a court of competent jurisdiction, other legal or regulatory authority, or, if there is a good faith belief, and reliance on said belief that disclosure is necessary to: comply with any legal process served on WCS; maintain, uphold or protect WCS’ rights or property; protect and ensure the personal safety of the public or other WCS’s clients; or protect against criminal or quasi-criminal activities, or to detect, prevent, investigate allegations of, or address, misrepresentation or fraud.

WCS reserves the right that in the event of a bankruptcy filing, mergers with third parties, acquisition by third parties, sale of assets (all or partial), or any other transfer of all or substantially all of WCS’s relevant assets to a third party, that WCS shall be entitled share (or sell as an ancillary aspect of the overarching business transaction) the Personal Data provided by the Data Subject to the third party.

Retention and Disposal

WCS keeps information only for so long as it is needed for the efficient and effective delivery or fulfilment of the software, products, or services using or contemplating using by the Data Subject and for a reasonable time thereafter, or to meet any legal requirements. WCS will either destroy or remove information when it is no longer needed.

Security and Storage

WCS endeavours to maintain appropriate physical, procedural and technical security with respect to its and Processor’s offices and information storage facilities so as to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, or modification of Personal Data. This also applies to WCS’s disposal or destruction of Personal Data.

WCS keeps the Personal Data collected from about Data Subject strictly confidential. Only authorised personnel have access to this Personal Data. Personnel of WCS and Processor who have access to Personal Data receive training regarding privacy protection.

WCS’s security specialists build security by design by default into our computer systems. The aim is to protect information at all times, when it is stored in data files or handled by WCS’s employees. WCS’s systems are also designed to protect information when it is transmitted, for example, between our data processing facilities and corporate offices. Personal Information may be stored or processed in any jurisdiction in which we or our affiliates, suppliers, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities. By supplying WCS with Personal Data, you consent to any transfer of this information to other jurisdictions (including countries which have not been assessed for adequacy of privacy laws).

WCS does, and shall continue to use, industry-standard technology to maintain the security of Personal Data, and for WCS’s connections to the internet; however, WCS cannot and does not guarantee the privacy, security, authenticity or non-corruption of any information transmitted through the internet or any for information stored in any third-party system connected to the internet.

While WCS takes steps to verify that any service providers, suppliers or the like with whom WCS shares Personal Data, are committed to maintaining the privacy of Personal Data at standards that are at least as stringent as WCS’s Privacy Policy and has communicated to them to refrain from making any independent or unauthorised use of any Personal Data, WCS does not and cannot guarantee the actions, conduct or standards of any such parties.

WCS shall not be responsible for any claims, damages, costs or losses whatsoever arising out of or in any way related to third-party connections to or use of the Internet.

WCS cannot and does not ensure the protection of any Personal Data that Data Subjects provide to a third-party website that may reference, be referenced or link to WCS’s website. Personal Data collected by these third parties is not subject to, or governed by, this Privacy Policy.

WCS shall not be responsible for events beyond our direct control, and therefore will not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or punitive damages relating to the uses or releases of Personal Data.

Cookie Policy What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookie technology. The cookie is downloaded by your Internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you visit this website from the same device, the cookie and the information contained in it are either sent back to the originating website (first-party cookies) or to another website to which it belongs (third-party cookies). In that way, the website can detect that it has already been opened using this browser, and in some cases it will then vary the content it displays.

Some cookies are extremely useful because they can improve your user experience when you return to a previously visited website. This assumes that you are using the same device and the same browser as before; if so, cookies will remember your preferences, will know how you use the website, and will adapt the content you are shown so that it is more relevant to your personal interests and needs.

Your cookie settings on this website.

Cookies on this website that do not require approval.

Cookies that are essential, also known as ‘strictly necessary’ cookies, enable features without which you would not be able to use the website as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by WCS and are therefore known as first-party cookies. They are only saved on your computer while you are actually browsing the website. An example of why strictly necessary cookies are used is to set the language of your preference when browsing this website.

Another example of what these cookies do is facilitate a switch from HTTP to HTTPS when you change pages, so that the security of data transmitted is maintained. Furthermore, a cookie of this kind is used to store your decision about the use of cookies on our website. Your consent is not required for the use of strictly necessary cookies. Strictly necessary cookies cannot be disabled without losing some of the features of this website.

Categories of cookies

Categories of cookies
Based on what function cookies have and the purpose for which cookies are used, there are four categories of cookie: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies and marketing cookies.

Strictly necessary cookies
Are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, some services cannot be provided – for example, remembering previous actions (e.g. the language in which you want to browse this site) when navigating back to a page in the same session.

Performance cookies
Gather information about how a website is used – for example, which pages a visitor opens most often, and whether the user receives error messages from some pages. These cookies do not save information that would allow the user to be identified. The collected information is aggregated, and therefore anonymous. These cookies are used exclusively to improve the performance of the website, and with it the user experience.

Functional cookies
Enable a website to save information which has already been entered (such as user names, languages choices, and your location), so that it can offer you improved and more personalised functions. For example, a website can offer you local information if it uses a cookie to remember the region in which you are currently located. Functional cookies are also used to enable features you request such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other websites.

Marketing cookies
Are used to deliver adverts and other communications more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They remember whether you have visited a website or not, and this information can be shared with other parties such as advertisers. Cookies for improving group targeting and advertising will often be linked to site functionality provided by other organisations.

Your cookie settings on this website.

You can completely disable cookies in your browser at any time.
It is important to note that if you change your settings and block certain cookies, you will not be able to take full advantage of some features of our site, and we might not be able to provide some features you have previously chosen to use.
