We may request personal information to be submitted to our servers in order to be able to:
- personalize online software applications according to your needs
- enforce strict security rules with respect to the data that you upload (e.g. statistical data)
- manage user sessions of online applications
We do not allow other companies to 'directly' offer registered users information about their products and services. Banner references and hyperlinks of third parties never contain any personal data of the visitor.
We do not sell, nor transmit by any means, personal information, nor statistical data series uploaded by you to third parties.
We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, and destruction. This does not apply to any statistical data series (such as time series) that have been uploaded in a public workspace. Statistical data series in private workspaces are protected against loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, and destruction caused by unauthorized individuals. However, at any time, and under any circumstance you are solely responsible for managing your passwords, and keeping them secret.
We store a unique anonymous User ID in the form of a small Cookie on your computer. This allows us to track your progress when using this website which is necessary to create your personal history list (= the last computations that you performed) and to securely manage user sessions. At any time you may opt to disallow cookies from this website (by using appropriate settings in your web browser) - this, however, will affect various features of this website.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our websites. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. We examine cookies that are used by third-parties very closely: abuse from third-parties automatically results in termination of the advertising contract without refund. We have very good reason to believe that the cookies that are produced by third parties do not cause any privacy or security risk.
Wessa.net is safe. There is no need to download any software to use the applications and services contained in this website. Hence, your system's security is not compromised by their use, and your personal data - other than data you submit in the account application form, and the user-agent information that is transmitted by your browser - is never transmitted to our servers.
As a general rule, we do not log on-line behavior of individuals (other than normal logging of webserver 'hits'). However, in cases of abuse, hacking, unauthorized access, Denial of Service attacks, illegal copying, hotlinking, non-compliance with international webstandards (such as robots.txt), or any other harmful behavior, our system engineers are empowered to log, track, identify, and disallow IP addresses.
