Our Commitment to Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. It also explains the treatment of information provided or collected on applications we make available on third-party sites or platforms. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where Personally Identifiable Information (PII) may be requested. We follow this privacy policy in accordance with local law in the places where we operate.

The Types of Information We Collect

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on WCYB.com. We collect two basic types of information – personal information and anonymous information; we may use personal and anonymous information to create a third type of information, aggregate information. We collect the following categories of information:
