Information we collect
Entries to certain special and promotional offers on Waddido.com may require users to provide certain personally identifiable information, such as your name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number, gender, and/or date of birth.
Some features and services of Waddido.com may require additional personally identifiable information or other demographic information. We may collect other personally identifiable information when you provide feedback, comments, engage in chat, message boards, interactive forums or participate in surveys, or if you contact us offline. For example, when you enter contests you will be asked to also provide your phone number so that we can reach you in the event you have won a prize. All users may decline to share such information with us, by choosing not to register on Waddido.com or not to use our services. Only registered members, however, may access certain content, services and features.
If you wish to forward an article to a friend, we will ask that you provide your friend's name and e-mail address. While we may collect statistics on which articles are forwarded, we do not sell, rent, or market your friend's personal information, and retain the information only as long as necessary to provide this service.
Passive data collection and use
Like most Web sites, Waddido.com also collects and logs information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to you, such as your IP address, the name and location of your Internet Service Provider, the type and version of your browser, the length of time that you stay on Waddido.com, search queries, your click-stream data, the location that referred you to Waddido.com and the average number of pages viewed. If you visit another Web site prior to browsing Waddido.com, that Web site might place personally identifiable information within a URL, which may be logged by us. Your IP address is the identifier assigned to your particular computer when you access the Internet. Depending on how you connect to the Internet, your IP address may always be the same, or it may change each time you access the Internet. Note that logging your IP address does not in and of itself provide us with your name, e-mail address or home or work address. We use this log information for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes and may also use it to gather general demographic information about you such as your general location and your Internet Service Provider. To better provide our services to you and to develop member profiles that enable us to tailor Waddido.com's services and its advertisements to your interests, we may correlate this log information with other information about you, such as your registration information. We may provide to third parties anonymous aggregated (non-personally identifiable) general information about our Web site and its users.
Most standard Web browsers contain a feature called "cookies," which allow a Web site to place information about a user's visit to that Web site in a small data text file that is stored on the user's computer. Our use of cookie technology will likely be transparent to you and is used to recognize you and hold information from one visit to the next in an effort to increase your ease of use of Waddido.com and to allow us to better understand how people use Waddido.com through click-stream analysis. For example, cookies may be used to store information such as your member name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit. Another example is that we may use cookie technology to control the number of times you see a particular advertisement while visiting Waddido.com. You can turn the cookies feature off by using your browser preference options, but doing so will severely limit your access to Waddido.com and may prevent you from registration.
Use of personally identifiable information

We ask these third parties to keep any personal information supplied by us confidential. We also endeavor to keep your personally identifiable information inaccessible to other users or advertisers of Waddido.com. Note that your first name may be displayed on Waddido.com when you visit Waddido.com as a logged in member if/when this feature is available. We will also display your e-mail address and contact information in your account. While no Web site is completely secure, we make reasonable efforts to secure the members’ accounts, such that; it can only be accessed by logging in with your member name and password.

We use Aggregated Information to operate our services and to better understand our audience as we develop new content and services. Aggregated Information may also be shared with third parties with whom we contract to provide content and services on Waddido.com as well as advertisers so that they can better understand our audience.
