TechSero Privacy Policy

Updated August 10th, 2021 by TechSero, a division of

At WisTex TechSero Ltd. Co., one of our main priorities and concerns is the privacy of our visitors and customers. This privacy policy document contains the types of information that are collected and recorded by WisTex TechSero Ltd. Co. and how we use it.

To make it simple, we have created a universal privacy policy for all or most of our websites. Websites that we own or operate that are subject to this privacy policy will either link directly to this privacy policy, or will reference this privacy policy on their designated privacy policy page.

Some of the websites we operate include: wistex.com, wistex.net, wistexhosting.com, techsero.com, techsero.net, wealthcharacter.com, showsdatabase.com, and other websites.


Each website might collect different information, or may collect information in a different way, or may not collect personal information at all.

For example, not all websites have ads on them, and not all websites let you log in and create profiles.

Information We Collect

We may collect and use the following types of information from those who use the Site and the Services:

  • Information by which you may be personally identified, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, billing and credit card information, and other information that may not be publicly available ("personal information").
  • Information about you that does not identify you personally, including, but not limited to, your demographic information (for example, your age, gender, race, religion, political affiliation, and household income), personal interests, online interactions, viewing data, requests for Services, communications with us and third parties, advertisement interactions, survey and polling information, forum and discussion board activities, Site feedback or suggestions, search queries, product reviews, sweepstakes or contest information, and any other activities when using the Site or the Services.
  • Information you provide when you register with the Site and the Services, when adding or updating account preferences, and when subscribing for any Services.
  • Information you provide when submitting information to be posted or otherwise displayed on public areas of the Site or transmitted to other visitors or third parties on the internet (collectively, "User Contributions"). All User Contributions are submitted at your own risk. Although we always seek to protect your information, we cannot guarantee that our security over User Contributions is impenetrable. We also cannot control how other visitors and third parties that gain access to User Contributions will use such information.

We may combine information you provide us with other information about you that we obtain from your past use of the Site and Services, from our business partners, and from other companies. We may access other information about you collected from third parties, such as social media and marketing companies.

Automatic Data Collection

We collect the following types of information from you as you use the Site through automatic data collection technologies:

  • Log file information commonly collected by host servers when you visit websites, including internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamps, referring/exit pages, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, click counts, and similar information. This information is not connected to personal information and is used for purposes of administering the Site, analyzing trends, tracking visitor activity, and collecting demographic data.
  • Other details regarding your activities on the Site and Services, including your equipment, operating system, software, traffic information, and location data.

Our automatic data collection includes the use of the following technologies:

  • Cookies. A "cookie" is a small piece of data that is stored on a visitor's hard drive in order to store information about visitor preferences and activities on the Site. We use this information to optimize the experiences of our visitors. For instance, a cookie can help us identify you when you return to the Site in order to save you time. In the event that our business partners, affiliates, or advertisers on the Site use cookies, we will not have access or control over such cookies. However, any use of cookies will not relate to any personally identifiable information about you. You may also choose to refuse to accept cookies by configuring the appropriate setting on your browser. However, doing so may prevent you from being able to access parts of the Site or Services and may prevent the Site from functioning properly.

  • Web Beacons. A "web beacon" is a small file (also known as a clear gif or pixel tag) that is embedded on a webpage, email, video, or other content that allows us to collect data about visitors who interact with such webpages or emails, such as recording when such content is accessed and reading other information from your browser. You may be able to disable web beacons in our email communications by turning off "images" in your email client settings. However, doing so may prevent you from being able to properly enjoy our Services as they are designed to be used.

  • DoubleClick DART Cookies. A "DoubleClick DART cookie" is a cookie that, according to Google, Inc., "is used by Google in the ads served on publisher websites displaying AdSense for content ads. When users visit an AdSense publisher's website and either view or click on an ad, a cookie may be dropped on that end user's browser. The data gathered from these cookies will be used to help AdSense publishers better serve and manage the ads on their site(s) and across the web." You may opt out of using the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

  • Google Analytics. We may use Google Analytics or similar services to collect non-personal information from you regarding your use of the Site. Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google, Inc. that mainly uses cookies to report on your interactions on the Site and analyzes how you use the Site. For more information on Google Analytics, including how to set up privacy controls on how Google Analytics collects your information, please see Google's privacy and terms website.

We may store personal information in locations outside of our direct control; for instance, on servers or databases where the hosting provider is located. Additionally, we may share or sell aggregate information about our visitors that does not personally identify individuals with our partners, affiliates, advertisers, and other third parties without restriction. This information may include personal information that we have changed so that individuals are no longer personally identifiable. We may also share this information with third parties in order to analyze visitor data, activities, and usage of the Site or Services in order to make improvements to the Site, Services, and experiences of our visitors.

We may display targeted advertisements using third-party ad servers, also known as ad networks. Targeted advertisements are ads that specifically target consumers that fall into certain demographics or that otherwise display characteristics that make them desirable for advertisers. Ad servers automatically communicate with your browser and receive your IP address. They may also use other technologies, including cookies and web beacons, to collect data and analyze the performance of their advertisements. This allows the ads we display to be more relevant and interesting to you. We do not provide personal information to advertisers when you view, click, or interact with a targeted ad. However, if you view, click, or interact with a targeted ad, the responsible advertisers and ad servers may assume that you have certain characteristics that match their intended audience. By viewing, clicking, or interacting with a targeted ad, you acknowledge and consent to ad servers recording such assumptions about you. Our privacy policy does not apply to the ad servers that display advertisements on our Site. Please consult their respective privacy policies for more information.

If you choose to participate in any promotions, sweepstakes, contests, or similar events through the Site or Services, the rules or terms and conditions for such events may change the way we share your information with third parties. Please review the applicable rules or terms and conditions for all such events in which you participate.

Links to Other Websites

This Site may contain links to or from other websites. This privacy policy only applies to information collected on this Site, and we are not responsible for other website's privacy practices. Please be aware of when you exit our Site using such links. We encourage you to review the privacy practices of all other websites you reach through links on our Site.

Third-Party Tracking on Our Site

We may place content, including advertisements, on our site from advertisers, ad servers, and other third parties. These third parties may use cookies, web beacons, or other tracking technologies associated with their content on the Site to collect information, including personal information, about your activities over time and across different websites. They may send you targeted ads or other content based on this information. We have no control over how these third parties use your information, and you should contact the responsible party with any related questions or concerns.

Security

We take the security of your information seriously and have electronic, physical, and administrative safeguards in place that comply with federal regulations for your protection. These security measures seek to protect your information both online and offline from disclosure, alteration, or unauthorized use. However, please keep in mind that no transmission of data over the internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. Third parties may be able to access private communications illegally; for instance, through the use of hacking and viruses. As such, all information you transmit on the Site or Services is at your own risk. We are not responsible for instances where third parties circumvent our security measures without authorization, illegally or otherwise.

The information you submit to us is encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) data encryption technology and is transmitted securely. You may verify this by locating "https" at the beginning of the address of the webpage or an icon of a closed lock in your browser. The computers and servers we use are also kept in a secure environment behind firewalls. We limit access to your information to those people that need to view it to perform necessary support tasks, including fulfilling your requests. We also require you to create a unique password to help secure your account. It is your responsibility to maintain the secrecy of your password and other login information. Please be aware of when you are submitting User Contributions in public spaces that may be viewed by others. It is your responsibility to avoid submitting information you wish to keep confidential. We will promptly notify you in the event that personal information becomes compromised according to our notification procedures outlined below or as otherwise required by applicable law.

Fraud Prevention

Unfortunately, there are many people who sign up for web services and online accounts using false information, usually in an attempt to send out spam, or engage in phishing, or engage in fraud, or use stolen credit cards to pay, or other nefarious purposes.

In order to mitigate this, we may use a variety of systems and third-parties to verify that new customers are legitimate. This applies to individuals and businesses and other entities.

Although we do our best to mitigate fraud and malicous and illegal conduct, we are not responsible for the conduct of users and members on our websites or servers. Users of our services and members of our websites are responsible for their own conduct.

If we have evidence of suspected fraud, suspected violations of law, and/or suspected malicious intent, we reserve the right to share this information with law enforcement, courts, victims & their attorneys, and third-parties so that others may be protected from fraudulent conduct or obtain justice.

We do not have to inform you that we have disclosed your information to third parties for this purpose, except where required by law. And we are not required to disclose this information to third parties, unless required by law. Whether or not we disclose is up to our discretion and applicable laws and regulations.

Business Credit and Invoiced Accounts

This section applies to businesses, corporations, companies, non-profits, incorporated entities, sole proprietorships, or other similar entities (herein referred to as "business" or "businesses"). This does not apply to consumers (i.e. individuals).

If your business applies for credit (such as NET 30 terms) or has an account where we send you an invoice for services, we may make inquiries about your business and share information with third parties to do so.

Before extending credit, we are required to verify your identity.

If your company or business applies for credit or an invoiced account, we may check your business credit report with one or more business credit bureaus and/or may verify your identity using one or more of our business partners, third parties, and/or public sources. We do not check your personal credit report.

If your business is approved for credit or an invoiced account, we may report and share your business's personal information (company name, address, phone number, EIN, DUNS number, etc.) and payment history to business credit bureaus. We do not report to consumer credit bureaus.

For applications of credit, we will request your consent on the application and will not process your application without this consent, as it is a condition of granting credit to your business or company.

For invoiced accounts, it may or may not be explicitly stated on the registration form, but it should be assumed that we will check whether you are a legitimate customer, as this is standard business practice for most B2B online businesses as part of normal fraud and identity checking.

Any exceptions to this section or this privacy policy will be stated on the application, terms of service, and/or related web pages, and we will ask for your consent before proceeding.

We only grant credit to companies, corporations and similar business entities and do not offer consumer credit. We do not pull or report to consumer credit reports.

If a registration form or profile asks what entity type you are, you must pick the correct entity type. If you are an individual, you must pick "individual" to be treated as a consumer. If you pick "sole proprietor" or one of the other business entity types, you will be classifed as a business and treated as such under our business credit reporting policies.

Where local laws or regulations require, we may deviate from this policy to comply with local law and regulations.

This section only covers our sharing of your business and credit information. Additional credit terms may apply as outlined in our terms of service and/or other agreements.

Children's Privacy

This Site does not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age. If you are under 13 years of age, do not use this Site or provide any personal information to us. We will delete all information that we discover is provided by children under 13 years of age without verification of parental consent. Please email us at security@wistex.com if you believe we have received personal information from a child aged under 13 and we will use our best efforts to remove such information.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

We may update this privacy policy at any time. We will post any changes in our privacy practices on this page with the date of the most recent revision indicated next to "Last updated" near the top of the page. If we make significant changes to the way we manage our visitors' personal information, we will notify you by email or by posting prominent notice on our Site. It is your responsibility to ensure we have your current email address and to periodically check this page for any updates.

Notification Procedures

We reserve the right to determine the most appropriate means of providing you with any notice required or advisable, in our sole discretion, under the terms of this privacy policy or as required by law. We may choose to provide notification by email, physical written notice, posting prominently on the Site, or through other conspicuous means.

Cross-Border Data Transfers

Your personal information may be processed and transferred to countries other than your own, including, but not limited to, any country in which we operate. Some of these countries may have different laws and practices regarding data protection than your country. By using the Site, you agree to such cross-border transfers of your personal information.

Third-Party Privacy Policies

As mentioned earlier in this privacy policy, third-parties may collect personal or non-personal information as you browse our websites.

The most notable example is ad networks, such as Google AdSense. Google's privacy policy would only apply on websites that display advertisements delivered from Google or one of its affiliates. In this same example, since we do not display ads on every website, their privacy policy would not apply to you when visting websites that do not display ads from one of Google's ad networks.

For your convenience, we have provided links to third-party privacy policies that may or may not apply to you, depending on your usage of our websites.

Google

Related to displaying advertisements from Google's ad networks, collecting analytics using Google's Analytics, and other Google services.

WordPress, Gravatar, and Akismet
