WhistleDrop does not routinely collect personally identifying information from Users merely visiting our websites. We may make use of a standard feature found in browser software, called a "cookie," to assign each visitor a unique, random number. Cookies allow us to track the pages on our sites visited by Users and to collect other statistical information. Using cookies helps us to deliver a more personalized service to our Users and to improve our services. You may disable cookies via the settings on your web browser, but doing so may prevent you from fully taking advantage of all the offerings or services we provide.
WhistleDrop does not knowingly collect or maintain personal information from any Person under the age of 18 (“Minors”). Generally, Minors may not use our websites without parental consent and participation. If we learn that any personal information about any Minor has been collected without parental consent, then we will take reasonable steps to delete any such information. WhistleDrop always seeks parental or legal guardian’s authorization whenever we identify that a minor attempts to purchase a WhistleDrop product or service or provide personally-identifiable information to us.
A note to those under 18: Please get permission from your parents before using our websites or sending any e-mail to us or to anyone on the Internet. If you wish to subscribe to any of our websites, your parents need to complete the subscription form for you.
From those Users who order services or products from or through us, we collect usage information in connection with User logins and passwords in order to monitor subscription compliance and for other purposes related to the Services and WhistleDrop business. As part of our subscription and registration process, subscribers are asked voluntarily to submit limited personal information and certain financial information in order to create an account (typically name, age, e-mail address, affiliation, phone number, payment information, and unique user name and password).
When a User enters sensitive information (such as credit card numbers) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using encryption techniques common in e-commerce, such as secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and while maintaining this information. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot and do not guarantee the information’s absolute security.
WhistleDrop will not share with or sell or lease sensitive credit card information to third parties, unless required to do so in connection with collection proceedings or otherwise as ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction.
