This information may be used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Company’s website.
Please keep in mind that if you disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through any WAKEFIELD public message boards that may exist now or in the future, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: WAKEFIELD does not read any of your private online communications.
Use of your Personal Information
Wakefield collects and uses the personal information you voluntarily supply to the Company to deliver you any information you have requested. Wakefield may, at particular times, also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other opportunities available from or through Wakefield and its affiliates and subsidiaries. Wakefield may also contact you via surveys to conduct market research or to obtain your opinion of current or potential new opportunities available through the Company or its affiliates or subsidiaries.
The Company does not sell, rent or lease any customer lists or lists of any other data to third parties. The Company may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. If the Company were to contact you in connection with any such potential offering, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) would not be transferred or identified to the third party. Wakefield will not use or disclose sensitive personal information without your express, written consent unless required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the Company or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the Company; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Company’s website, or the public.
The Company’s website may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the webserver that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Wakefield’s pages, or register with the Company’s site or services, a cookie helps the Company to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the websites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
Wakefield undertakes all reasonable efforts to secure any personal information you supply from unauthorized access, use or disclosure but cannot guaranty that its databases will not be accessed without the Company’s authorization or knowledge.
