Types of Information This Website Collects
You need to know that the team behind the Work Boots Authority website collects various types of information about its users. There are two main types of information we collect:
This refers to the type of information we can use to identify our readers as individuals. This may refer to:
- Full name;
- Physical address;
- Email address;
- Phone number;
- Workplace, etc.
Please be advised that we do not collect personally-identifiable information from our users. In the case we will need to do so, we will ask for your permission beforehand. Some examples of situations when we’ll need to get this type of information from you would be when you comment or post something on our forums, when you sign up for the newsletter or when you create an account on WorkBootsAuthority.com.
However, please do not share your full name, e-mail address, physical address, or location in the comments section, considering that it’s public. We don’t require your personal information to leave a comment here.
This is the type of information that doesn’t allow us to identify our users. It is also called ‘log file’ and it lets us know:
- IP address;
- Date of the access;
- Time of the access;
- Browser type;
- The last page you visited.
How Do We Protect the Data?
Of course, this is a popular question among our users after they understand what type of data we collect and when. First, you need to be aware that if you provide personal or business information (name, phone number, address, etc.) on the pages of the website, this is entirely up to you. We do our best to allow our users access to the services without offering this kind of information.
Second, you should know that we don’t allow third parties to access and use our reader’s private information on the website pages or to send them any kind of unsolicited content. We would only do so in the cases enforced by the law or when we notice a user engaging in illegal or suspicious activities.
Another thing that you should be aware of is the fact that we rely on cookies. We do so because it helps us offer you optimized and targeted content. Moreover, we make sure that our performance stays within the desired parameters. However, if you worry that the cookies may collect personal information, you have no reason to. They only take care of non-personal information.
Even so, you have the option of disabling the cookies for our website. For this, you need to go to the privacy setting available in your browser. However, you should know that without the cookies, the website will not achieve the same performance. Keep in mind that the cookies can be re-enabled from the same privacy setting menu in the browser.
