California Residents: your privacy rights

 

If you are a California resident, you may have the right to request and receive certain information about disclosure of your Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes, and your choices with respect to any such disclosures.  However, because it is our policy to not share your Personal Information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes, we are exempt from having to meet this requirement.  If you have questions regarding this requirement and our compliance, please contact us using the information provided in the “Questions” section below.

 

Opting in/Opting out

 

You may have the right to “opt in” and/or “opt out” of certain of our uses of your Personal Information.

It is important to us that you feel secure when using Wayaj.  We follow industry-standard data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect the security of Personal Information collected and stored by Wayaj from unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction.  Wayaj currently uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) servers to host all user data. We make use of the AWS cloud security services and technology for the encryption of your personal information and we also use the AWS firewalls to protect your data.  You can find more information on AWS security practices at http://aws.amazon.com/security/.  Please remember, however, that if you create an account with us, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user name and password.  While we will endeavor to protect the security and integrity of any Personal Information that may be provided by our users to Wayaj, complete security is not always possible. Due to the inherent nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee, and make no representation or warranty, that information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from unauthorized access or use.

Wayaj is not directed at children. We do not knowingly sell or ship any items that may be requested through Wayaj directly to anyone who we know to be under the age of 13, nor do we collect any PII from anyone who we know to be under the age of 13.  If you are under the age of 13, you should not register, order, purchase or provide information to or from Wayaj. If we become aware that a user of Wayaj is under the age of 13 and has provided an online registration or other PII without prior verifiable parental consent, we will take all commercially reasonable steps to delete such information from our files and not to use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required or allowed by law). If you have knowledge or become aware that a child under the age of 13 has submitted PII to us, please contact us and we will remove that child’s PII from our files. If you are under the age of 18, you should use Wayaj only with the involvement of a parent or legal guardian and should not submit any PII to us.
