The Site is protected by United States and international copyright and trademark laws. The contents of the Site, including all data, files, documents, text, photographs, images, audio, and video, and any materials accessed through or made available for use or download through this Site (“Content”) may not be copied, distributed, modified, reproduced, published or used, in whole or in part, except for purposes authorized by these Terms of Use or otherwise approved in writing by WVI.

Permitted Uses

Each Site Owner may use the WVI Services to obtain email addresses of unidentified visitors to the Site Owner’s sites. Site Owner may use the Services only in compliance with all applicable laws and Data & Marketing Association (DMA) guidelines and may not use or permit the Services to be used (i) in violation of any applicable laws, statutes, rules, or regulations including all applicable privacy, “do not call,” “do not mail,” and similar “do not solicit” country, federal, state, county, and local regulations; (ii) for the propagation of worms, viruses, or other malware; or (iii) to violate the rights of others (including without limitation privacy rights). WVI reserves the right to suspend the Services (or a portion thereof) without notice in the event the Site Owner’s use of the Services is in violation of this section, and to terminate this agreement for repeated violations of this section.

Site Owner may place code (a “Pixel Tag”) on Site Owner’s Third-Party Site that is used to gather relevant information about the visitor to the site (each a “Visitor”) to assist Site Owner in reaching its customers and intended audiences. WVI grants Site Owner a nontransferable, non-exclusive license to the data received from the use of the WVI Services (“Licensed Data”). Site Owner may use the Licensed Data only for marketing and management purposes and may not transfer possession, right, or title of or to such data to any third parties for any other purpose whatsoever.

Site Owner Must maintain on its Site(s), mobile applications, or other digital platforms or assets of Site Owner a privacy policy that, along with complying with all applicable laws, specifically informs Visitors of the placement of Pixel Tags, the data collected and obtained through the Pixel Tags, and informs Visitors of the intended use of the collected data. Additionally, in jurisdictions that require informed consent for the storing and accessing of cookies or other information on an end user’s device (such as the European Union), Site Owner must ensure, in a verifiable manner, that an end user provides the necessary consent before using Pixel Tags to enable us to store and access cookies or other information on the end user’s device. Site Owner must provide Visitors a link to Site Owner’s privacy policy and the opportunity for Visitors to “opt out” or disable Pixel Tags. Site Owner may post Pixel Tags only on Sites owned by Site Owner and may not deploy Pixel Tags on any website primarily engaged in pornography, gambling, or sale of tobacco products.

Site Owner represents and warrants that it has in place and shall undertake the following in connection with this agreement:

A. Notice and Choice. Site Owner must obtain any permissions required to employ the Pixel Tags, and must post and maintain a robust and sufficiently prominent privacy policy that is consistent with its use of the Pixel Tags, complies with applicable law, and prominently discloses at a minimum (a) the Site Owner’s use of the Pixel Tags, including with respect to the collection, use and disclosure of non-personally identifiable information and personally identifiable information, data from cookies, and similar practices; (b) use of the Pixel Tags and cookie data for purposes of obtaining the email address and potentially other demographic and personal information about the Visitor; and (c) the Visitor’s ability to choose to opt out of information being collected by the Pixel Tags.

B. Mandatory Site Owner Privacy Policy Language. In particular, in addition to and without limiting Site Owner’s obligation to post a privacy policy on its site in compliance with all applicable laws, Site Owner must include in its privacy policy the following (or alternative, equally protective) language on all websites deploying the Pixel Tags:

Third-Party Pixels and Cookies

Notwithstanding anything else in this policy, we and/or our partners may use pixels and pixel tags, and place, read, or use cookies that collect information from your device and/or Internet browser.

For example, the cookies may reflect de-identified demographic or other data linked to data you have voluntarily submitted to us, e.g., your email address, which we may share with a data provider solely in hashed, non-human readable form. Visitors may also express their choices for display advertising, through the following platforms: Digital Advertising Alliance opt-out platform or the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out platform.

We and/or our partners may also use cookies for delivering personalized advertising emails. These cookies are used to identify the visitors of our advertisers’ websites and send personalized emails based on the visitors’ browsing experience.

We and/or our partners use cookies, pixels, and other tracking technology to associate certain Internet-related information about you, such as your Internet Protocol address and what web browser you are using, with certain of your online behaviors, such as opening emails or browsing websites. Such information is used to customize ads or content and may be shared with our partners.
