Collection of Personal Information
WIN will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are asked to register before joining a limited-access site, or when purchasing WIN services. Personal information collected by WIN is generally limited to e-mail address, phone number, country or location, but may include other information when needed to provide a service you have requested. When you use a WIN service, we may ask you to register electronically. When you do, we keep this registration information on file with any information you have already given us on previous visits to our Site. This is considered your personal information.
Use of Personal Information
We use your personal information for four primary purposes:
- to make the site easier for you to use by not requiring you to enter your personal information more than once
- to help you quickly find services or information on the Site
- to help us create and deliver content most relevant to you
- to alert you about special offers, updated information and other new services from WIN.
WIN will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
- conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process served on WIN or the Site
- protect and defend the rights or property of WIN and its Site,
- and act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site, or the public.
Control of your Personal Information
When you register, or otherwise give us personal information, WIN will not share that information with third parties without your permission, other than for the limited exceptions listed above, nor will WIN use your information for any purpose other than those stated in the "Use of Personal Information" section. WIN may send out periodic e-mails informing you of technical service issues related to services you have requested. You will, of course, be able to choose to unsubscribe to these mailings.

WIN strictly protects the security of your personal information and will honour your choices for its intended use.

Your personal information is never shared outside the company with any third parties without your permission, except under conditions explained above.
