Appropriate use and protection of personal data is our highest priority. Thus, the following policy is designed to inform you about the processing of your personal data and your rights according to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), California Consumer Privacy Act (“CaCPA”) and other data protection laws.
Processing of Personal Data That You Provide Through the Platform, Programs and Services.
When you interact with WebPipl through the Services, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. WebPipl may store such information itself, or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by WebPipl affiliates, agents or service providers. The Services may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.
Aggregated Personal Data.
In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, WebPipl often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and WebPipl may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. WebPipl may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Third-Party Tracking and Analytics.
Your visit to our website and/or use of our online services will be logged. The IP address currently used by your device, the date and time, the browser type, the operating system, and/or the web pages accessed may be recorded. This data is collected for the purposes of optimizing and improving our website and/or online services. The processing is legally based on legitimate interest as it is in our legitimate interest to protect our website and to improve the quality of our services. Additionally, your personal data is only stored if you provide it to us, e.g. as part of a registration, a survey, an online application, or for online purchase (performance of a contract). We have taken appropriate measures to ensure that the data provided to us during registration is adequately protected. These measures include, but are not limited to, data encryption, access control, segregation of duties, and internal audit.
If you wish, you can subscribe to our blog by filling out the registration form provided there. The personal data collected in the registration form will only be processed for sending newsletters to your e-mail address and only if you have given your consent to this data processing. Your personal data will be processed until you unsubscribe from the newsletter by clicking the link “unsubscribe,” which is provided in each newsletter you receive from us. Please note that you will not receive any newsletters from us after you unsubscribe.
In operating the Services, we may use a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Services gives to your browser when you access the Services. They are stored as small text files on your device. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Services and help us analyze Services usage more accurately. To make your visit to our website more pleasant, and to enable the use of certain functions, we may use “cookies” on various pages. For instance, our Site may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Services without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site.
Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session (when you close your browser). Other cookies remain on your device and enable us, or our partner companies and other authorized third parties, to recognize your browser on your next visit. Browsers can be customized and/or configured to accept or reject cookies based on your personal preference. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. For more information, see the help section of your Internet browser. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be limited, you might not be able to use all of the features we offer or store your preferences, and some of our pages might not display properly.
Personal data provided to us via our website will only be stored until the purpose for which they were processed has been satisfied. Insofar as retention periods under commercial and tax law must be observed, the storage period for certain data can be up to 3 years. However, storage periods may also be amended due to our legitimate interest (e.g. to guarantee data security, to prevent misuse, or to prosecute criminal offenders).
Our Disclosure of your Personal Data & Other Information.
WebPipl is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Information about General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Personal data in the context of GDPR.
Any data that relates to an identifiable or identified individual. GDPR covers a broad spectrum of information that could be used on its own, or in combination with other pieces of information, to identify a person. Personal data extends beyond a person’s name or email address. Some examples include financial information, political opinions, genetic data, biometric data, IP addresses, physical addresses, sexual orientation, and ethnicity.
The Data Protection Principles include requirements such as: Personal data collected must be processed in a fair, legal, and transparent way and should only be used in a way that a person would reasonably expect. Personal data should only be collected to fulfill a specific purpose and it should only be used for that purpose. Organizations must specify why they need personal data when they collect it. Personal data should be held no longer than necessary to fulfill its purpose. People covered by the GDPR have the right to access their own personal data. They can also request a copy of their data, and that their data be updated, deleted, restricted, or moved to another organization.
