Welcome to Worthwhile. Before taking advantage of the many useful services offered here, please take a minute to ensure that you understand the terms and conditions of our relationship by reading this important information. By using this Web site, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. We reserve the right to update or change these Terms and Conditions at any time and for any reason. By continuing to use the services offered on the Worthwhile Web site, you agree to be bound by any such revisions and should therefore periodically visit and print the latest version of the Terms and Conditions for your records. For your information, the date of the last update to these Terms and Conditions is stated at the top of this document.
We respect your privacy. When you use the Worthwhile Web site, you consent to the use of your personal information by Worthwhile in the manner specified in these Terms and Conditions. Worthwhile cannot and does not assume any responsibility or liability for the nature or ownership of any information you submit or for your or third parties' use or misuse of information transmitted or received using this Web site.
Contact and Questions: You may submit questions, comments, or concerns to us on the Worthwhile Web site. You may also request further information from us. We will ask for your name, e-mail address, and your comment or question. Any information that Worthwhile receives in this manner will not be shared with third parties. We will only use the information to respond to your inquiry or send you further information as you requested, and we may share it internally to improve our service to you.
Security: Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Worthwhile cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Worthwhile will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. However, once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Use of IP Addresses: An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When visitors request pages from Worthwhile, our servers log the visitors' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a visitors session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. Worthwhile collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of our site. We also use IP addresses to collect statistical information to send to our advertisers and for other marketing and promotional purposes.
Other Information Collectors: Except as otherwise expressly discussed in these Terms and Conditions, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties, such as outside links to other sites, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them. To the extent that we feature third-party advertisements on our Web site, these advertisers adhere to their own privacy customs and policies. Since Worthwhile does not control the privacy policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy customs and policies of that third party. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
We may discontinue, add to, modify, upgrade, or replace all aspects of the Web site in our sole discretion and without notice. In particular, we reserve the right in our sole discretion to modify, supplement, delete, discontinue, or remove any software, file, publications, information, resume communication, or other content appearing on or transmitted through the Web site.
Worthwhile has no obligation to monitor the services offered on this Web site or any use thereof or to retain the content of any user session. However, Worthwhile reserves the right at all times to monitor, review, retain, and/or disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, or to cooperate with law enforcement and other authorities in investigating a claim of illegal activity. Worthwhile may use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms and Conditions or to protect our service, site, customers, or others.
