Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. At WebTerritory (operator of this website) we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals: (Note, we’ve decided to make this privacy policy available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license, which means you’re more than welcome to steal it and repurpose it for your own use, just make sure to replace references to us with ones to you, and if you want we’d appreciate a link to 807area.ca somewhere on your site.)

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please Contact us.

WebTerritory operates several websites including WebTerritory.net, 807.directory, 807.Social, 807area.ca (this site), BOSSdirectory.ca, ECOpursuits.net, NetWarden.net, OpenDiscussion.ca, OutrightClassifieds.com, OutrightBargains.com, and more. It is WebTerritory’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, WebTerritory collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. WebTerritory’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how WebTerritory’s visitors use its website. From time to time, WebTerritory may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

WebTerritory also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our website’s blogs. WebTerritory only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to WebTerritory’s websites choose to interact with WebTerritory in ways that require WebTerritory to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that WebTerritory gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at OpenDiscussion.ca to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with certain features - by purchasing pay services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, WebTerritory collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with WebTerritory. WebTerritory does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

WebTerritory may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, WebTerritory may monitor the most popular blogs on one of our sites or use flagged data by our users to help identify spam or other inappropriate content. WebTerritory may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, WebTerritory does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

WebTerritory discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on WebTerritory’s behalf or to provide services available at WebTerritory’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using WebTerritory’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. WebTerritory will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, WebTerritory discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when WebTerritory believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of WebTerritory, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an WebTerritory website and have supplied your email address, WebTerritory may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with WebTerritory and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. WebTerritory takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. WebTerritory uses cookies to help WebTerritory identify and track visitors, their usage of a WebTerritory website, and their website access preferences. WebTerritory visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using WebTerritory’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of WebTerritory’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If WebTerritory, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that WebTerritory goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of WebTerritory may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by WebTerritory sites only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments/Posts

Comments/posts and other content submitted to to our sites may be processed via third party servers such as for example an anti-spam service. Typically the content are not saved on their servers unless for example they were marked as false positives, in which case they may store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives. This Privacy Policy does not cover comments/posts as they are typically meant to be published.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, WebTerritory may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in WebTerritory’s sole discretion. WebTerritory encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a 807area.ca account, you should also check your blog/site’s dashboard for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
