The Information Company Collects
- When you visit wikisozo.com, you provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us and Website use information collected by us as you interact with our Website. You may provide us with information by such things as uploading videos, posting comments in the video comments section, responding to surveys or subscribing to newsletters or other mailing lists.
- When you register with wikisozo.com, you provide us with certain personal information, including but not limited to your name, your email address, your telephone number, your gender and any other personal or preference information that you may provide to us.
- When you enter wikisozo.com, we collect your browser type and IP address. This information is generally gathered for My Salvation Story visitors. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer tied to information about the user. We use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you come back to wikisozo.com. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable this convenience feature.
- Log File Information: When you use the Site, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include, but are not limited to, information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
- Clear GIFs Information: When you use the Site, we may employ “clear GIFs” (a.k.a. Web Beacons) which are used to track the online usage patterns of our Users anonymously (i.e., in a non-personally-identifiable manner). In addition, we may also use clear GIFs in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened by recipients.
- If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about our site or our sharing service for videos, photos and similar items, we will ask you for information needed to send the invitation, such as your friend’s email address. If it is the invitation service, we will send your friend an email or instant message in your name inviting him or her to visit the site, and may send up to two reminders to them. If it is the sharing service, wikisozo.com will add any email addresses that you share materials with to our database and those individuals may begin receiving wikisozo.com emails. wikisozo.com stores this information to send invitations and reminders, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, to allow you to see invitations you have sent and to track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us to request that we remove this information from our database.

The Way Company Uses Information
- When you register with wikisozo.com, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed to people. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by wikisozo.com that we think you may find valuable.
- Profile information is used by wikisozo.com primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service and to be presented to others permitted to view that information by your privacy settings.
- wikisozo.com may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. For instance, if a comment is made on your published content, you may receive an email alerting you to that fact. Generally, you may opt out of such emails by clicking the Unsubscribe button at the bottom of any wikisozo.com email, though wikisozo.com reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
- We may use information about you that we collect from other sources, including but not limited to newspapers and Internet sources such as blogs, instant messaging services, wikisozo.com Platform developers and other users of wikisozo.com, to supplement your profile.
- Your account name (not your email address) is displayed to other Users when you upload videos or post comments on the Site and other Users can contact you through comments. Any videos that you submit to the Site may be redistributed through the Internet and other media channels and may be viewed by the general public.
- We use both your personally identifiable information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, click stream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Site and to create new features, promotions, functionality and services by storing, tracking and analyzing User preferences and trends.
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you profile access or making corrections. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times.
