Effective January 1, 2019
SECTION 1 - Information We Collect
Woodpecker collects information and data to develop, operate, safeguard, enhance and promote Woodpecker. The type of information we collect from you depends on how you use Woodpecker and what information you choose to provide or make available to us. All personal information that you provide must be true, complete and accurate, and you must notify us of any changes to your personal information. We collect information from you in two ways: personal information you disclose, and information automatically collected as explained below.
A. Personal Information You Disclose to Us.
Information related to the creation of accounts or that otherwise identifies you as a customer of Woodpecker is what we call "Customer Information." Customer Information may include certain "personally identifiable information" or "PII", such as your name, email address, gender, postal address and phone number. It also may include payment billing information, such as payment method, credit card information and contact information. If you register for Woodpecker, we collect personal information that you voluntarily provide to us such as (a) name and contact data (first and last name, email address, postal address, phone number and other similar contact data); (b) credentials including passwords and similar security information used for authentication and account access; (c) payment data necessary to process your payment if you make purchases, such as your payment instrument number (i.e., credit card number). All payment data is stored by our payment processor and not in any server or database managed by Woodpecker. Your personal information is used to offer and promote our services and to communicate with you and to inform you of new Woodpecker developments.
B. Information Automatically Collected.
We automatically collect certain information when you visit, use, or navigate through Woodpecker. This information does not reveal your specific identity (like your name or contact information) but may include device and usage information, such as your IP address, software and hardware you use (such as browser types, operating systems, ISPs, platform type, device type, mobile device identifiers such as make and model, mobile carrier), country, language preferences, referring URLs, pages or features of Woodpecker used and associated dates and timestamps, search terms, links you click, whether you open messages sent to your account, and other statistics related to your usage of Woodpecker.
We may also collect technical information such as web storage data, data stored in application data caches and data provided by web pixels, cookies and anonymous identifiers. We use this information primarily to maintain the security and operation of Woodpecker and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes. We retain and may use this information and data to examine and analyze Woodpecker usage trends and user preferences.
We also use tools, including third-party tools, to collect analytics data. Some of this information is collected using cookies and other tracking technologies, such as web beacons, session replay scripts, and similar technologies ("tracking technologies"). We may also work with third party partners to employ tracking technologies. When using Woodpecker, we may save one or more cookies onto your web browser. We use both session and persistent cookies to collect, store and track information and data to improve your Woodpecker experience. A session cookie is one that disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and can generally be removed. If you would prefer not to accept cookies or otherwise wish to disable our use of tracking technologies, please review the appropriate “Help” section in your web browser about the proper way to modify your cookie settings. Please note that doing so may negatively impact your experience using Woodpecker, as some features may not work properly.
Note that when clicking links to third party websites, cookies or pixels may be transmitted to your computer’s web browser. Woodpecker has no control over cookies or pixels, or other data transmitted by a third party. Woodpecker is not responsible for any cookies, pixels or data storage on your computer accessed through a third-party website or service.
C. Aggregated and Anonymized Information.
We automatically gather information and data which has no personal identity to improve Woodpecker. We may collect information by aggregating and anonymizing other information. The aggregation and anonymization process prevents the information from being associated or identified with any one customer account, user, or individual. We may use aggregated and anonymized information for a wide variety of statistical and analytical purposes.
SECTION 2 - How We Use the Information We Collect
We use the information we collect for a variety of business purposes, and how we use it depends on what we collect and how you use Woodpecker. These purposes may include:

Creating or administering your account.
Deriving market insights, ways to improve Woodpecker, and other business analysis or research purposes.

Securing and safeguarding Woodpecker and our systems and protecting your information and data.

A. Personally-Identifiable Information (PII).

If you wish to change these instructions, either by request, by correcting, amending, or deleting information we may have collected about you, or by opting out of certain data collection practices, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
B. Use of Your Content.
Your Content and feedback may be used on the Woodpecker website as well as on our social media platforms and the website of our affiliates.

With vendors we engage to help us gain insights and analytics into how Woodpecker is used and how it might be improved (for example, we may use third party data enrichment services to match Customer Information or other PII we collect with publicly available database information in order to communicate more effectively with you).
As necessary to comply with applicable law, including governmental requests, law enforcement requests, and otherwise to protect the rights, privacy, safety, or property of you, us, or others.
As necessary in the event of a proposed or actual reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer, financing, or other disposition of all or any portion of Woodpecker business, assets, or stock.

E. How We Secure Your Information.
We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the information we collect and store. Unfortunately, no security measures are 100% foolproof, and as such no network or system (including ours) can be guaranteed to be 100% secure against destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to information we collect and store. If you believe your information may not be secure for any reason, please contact us immediately at email@example.com.

You have many choices to access information we collect about you and about how we use or disclose that information. This section details many of those choices, including how you can exercise rights you may have with respect to your information (including personally identifiable information), how you can opt out of collection and use of certain types of information for certain purposes (such as marketing), and how you can use your browser or third party tools to disable certain collection methods (such as cookies or tracking technologies).

SECTION 3 – Your Privacy Rights
A. Cookies and Similar Technologies – How to Opt Out.
If you would prefer not to accept cookies or otherwise wish to disable our use of tracking technologies, most browsers and mobile devices allow you to change your settings to notify you when you receive cookies or other tracking technologies are being used, and to choose whether to accept/allow it. Most browsers also allow you to disable or delete existing cookies or to automatically reject future cookies. Disabling cookies may limit your ability to use Woodpecker.
Certain tracking technologies we use are related to advertising networks, and through those technologies we may share certain information such as IP addresses. No PPI is shared with these advertising networks, but please note that the information we share with those advertising networks might be combined with other information about you that those networks may have collected from other sources.
