The Wakefield Étudiant is committed to providing a fun, safe and secure website for people of
all ages. We are dedicated to safeguarding all personal information collected online.
To help ensure a rewarding online experience for all visitors, we provide this summary of
our information practices. This privacy notice governs the collection and use of information
at the Wakefield Étudiant.
We will treat all personal information we collect in accordance with the privacy notice in effect at the time the information is collected.
I. The Information We Collect
At the Wakefield Étudiant, we do not collect personally identifiable information unless our
visitors voluntarily provide it to us via comments.
Visitors who order merchandise or other materials from the Wakefield Étudiant or any of its affiliates will be required to provide their full name, billing and mailing addresses, e-mail address,
telephone number and possibly a credit card number. If the order is being shipped to a third
party, we will also need the recipient's name and mailing address. Before collecting
information in connection with a store order, we will verify the validity of the purchaser's
credit card. On occasion, we might solicit additional voluntary information regarding
shoppers' personal shopping preferences.
People of all ages are welcomed at the Wakefield Étudiant. We understand that most websites require children under 13 years old to notify their parent(s) upon commenting. Here, it is up to the child to make that judgment with or without his or her parent's assistance. We ask that children under the age of 13 abstain from making comments on articles; however, we do not keep track of our visitor's ages so we have no way of knowing how old our readers are unless they specifically divulge such information.
When visitors come to our site, we automatically collect some non-personally identifiable
information such as the type of computer operating system (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS)
and browser (e.g., Mozilla, Internet Explorer) being used, and the domain name of the
Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink). In addition, the country and IP address of our visitors are collected.
II. How We Use the Information
We never sell, rent, or otherwise share our visitors' personal information with third
parties. We may aggregate this information to analyze site usage, as well as to offer products, programs, or services.
We will disclose information we maintain as required by law, for example, in response to
a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a
specific law enforcement agency's request.
We will not use or transfer personally identifiable information in ways that are materially
different from the ones described above without also providing parental notification of
such practices and obtaining consent for any materially different uses.
