WAT reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor the user content you post on our website. We reserve the right to remove any such information or material for any reason or no reason, including without limitation if in our sole opinion such information or material violates, or may violate, any applicable law or to protect or defend our rights or property or those of any third party. WATalso reserves the right to remove information upon the request of any third party.

How We Share Your Information
Personally Identifiable Information: WAT will not rent or sell your personally identifiable information to others. WAT may share your personally identifiable information with third parties for the purpose of providing WAT's services to you. If we do this, such third parties’ use of your information will be bound by this Privacy Policy. We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of WAT (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).

Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to our website, such as user content, becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy or website customization settings. If you remove information that you posted to our website, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or if other users have copied or saved that information.

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, WAT will not disclose personal information to any third party unless required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the law, comply with legal process served on us or our affiliates, or investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities; (b) to enforce this policy, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, or to protect the security or integrity of our site; and (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of WAT, our users or others.

How We Protect Your Information
WAT cares about the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to WAT or guarantee that your information on the service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. Your privacy settings may also be affected by changes to the functionality of third-party providers, such as social networks. WAT is not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third party.

To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from WAT, at all times. 

Compromise of Personal Information
In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, WAT will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised, in accordance with the notification procedures set forth in this Privacy Policy, or as otherwise required by applicable law.

Your Choices About Your Information
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through our website, in which case WAT may not be able to provide certain services to you. You can review and correct the information about you that WAT keeps on file by contacting us directly at info@wideangle.org.au.

Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, WAT does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for accounts on our website. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on our website. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at info@wideangle.org.au.

Links to Other Web Sites
We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our website, nor the information or content contained therein. Please remember that when you use a link to go from our website to another website, our Privacy Policy is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other website, including those that have a link on our website, is subject to that website's own rules and policies. Please read over those rules and policies before proceeding.

Notification Procedures
It is our policy to provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business related purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through conspicuous posting of such notice on our website, as determined by WAT in its sole discretion. We reserve the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to you, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification as described in this Privacy Policy.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy
If we change our privacy policies and procedures, we will post those changes on our website to keep you aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we may disclose it. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page.
