Privacy Statement

Whitworth is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the Whitworth Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the Whitworth website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of your Personal Information

Whitworth collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. Whitworth also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, and preferences.

There is also information about your browser software that is automatically collected by Whitworth. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by Whitworth for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Whitworth Web site.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Whitworth public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Whitworth does not read any of your private online communications.

Whitworth encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from Whitworth so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. Whitworth is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the Whitworth and Whitworth family of Web sites.

Use of your Personal Information

Whitworth collects and uses your personal information to operate the Whitworth Web site and deliver the services you have requested. Whitworth also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Whitworth and its affiliates. Whitworth may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

Whitworth does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Whitworth may contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Whitworth may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Whitworth, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Whitworth does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

Whitworth keeps track of the pages our customers visit within Whitworth, in order to determine what Whitworth services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Whitworth to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

Whitworth Web sites 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: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Whitworth or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Whitworth; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Whitworth, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Whitworth Web site may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Whitworth pages, or register with Whitworth site or services, a cookie helps Whitworth to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Whitworth Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Whitworth features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Whitworth services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Whitworth secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Whitworth secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

Whitworth will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Whitworth encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Whitworth is protecting your information.
