Denaalatassi.com Privacy Policy

How We Collect and Use Information

We collect the following types of information about you:

Information you provide us directly:

We ask for certain information such as your real name and e-mail address when you register for our newsletter or if you correspond with us. We may also retain any messages you send through the Service, and may collect information you provide in User Content you post to this site. We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the site. The name you choose for yourself when commenting will be published publicly. Once published your username and / or real name may not be able to be removed.

Information we may receive from third parties:

We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, if you access our websites or Service through a third-party connection or log-in, for example, through Facebook Connect, by “following,” “liking,” etc., that third party may pass certain information about your use of its service to us. You may also unlink your third party account from the Service by adjusting your settings on the third party service.

Analytics information:

We may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools and services, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the site. These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and other information that assists us in improving the site. We collect and use this analytics information in aggregate form such that it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual user.

Log file information:

Log file information is automatically reported by your browser or mobile device each time you access the Service. When you use our site, our servers automatically record certain log file information. These server logs may include anonymous information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.

Device identifiers:

When you access the site by or through a mobile device (including but not limited to smart-phones or tablets), we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers,” such as a universally unique identifier (“UUID”). Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device.  A device identifier may convey information to us about how you browse and use the site. A device identifier may remain persistently on your device, to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Service. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.

Location data:

When you access the site by or through a mobile device, we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store “location data,” which may include GPS coordinates (e.g. latitude and/or longitude) or similar information regarding the location of your mobile device. Location data may convey to us information about how you browse and use the site.

Commercial and marketing communications:

We use the information we collect or receive, such as your email address, to communicate directly with you. We may send you emails containing newsletters, promotions, and special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you will be given the option to opt out or change your preferences. We also use your information to send you Service-related emails (e.g., account verification, purchase and billing confirmations and reminders, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). You may not opt out of Service-related emails.

  1. Who we may share your information with: We may share your information with third-party business partners and Trusted Users for the purpose of providing service to you. Third party business partners will be given limited access to your information as is reasonably necessary to deliver the service, and we will require that such third parties comply with this Privacy Policy, or operate under a similar privacy policy.
  2. Who can see User Content: Any User Content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the site becomes available to the public and cannot be removed, except by denaalatassi.com in its sole discretion. Once posted on the site, User Content may not be removable from public view, as copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the site, on other sites that have republished us, or if other Users have copied or saved that information. If you do not wish your User Content to be available to the public, please don’t post it on this site. Your username and if you choose to disclose it, your real name, will be published publicly.

  3. Who can see your IP address: If you post User Content on the Service while not logged in, your IP address will be published with your User Content in order to attribute your contribution to the Service. A selection of Trusted Users with administrative powers on denaalatassi.com have the ability to review IP addresses of users to reduce abusive behavior. Any third party service embedded on wikiHow such as an advertiser, video provider, social network or other third party will also have access to your IP address.
  4. Who can see your email address: If you enter an email address, you will enable communication from denaalatassi.com and other readers. If you reply to users or participate in group denaalatassi.com activities such as meetups, your email address will be shared with these users.

What happens in the event of a change of control:

We may buy or sell/divest/transfer the company (including any shares in the company), or any combination of its products, services, assets and/or businesses. Your information such as customer names and email addresses, User Content and other user information related to the Service may be among the items sold or otherwise transferred in these types of transactions.

Instances where we are required to share your information:

Denaalatassi.com will disclose your information where required to do so by law or subpoena or if we reasonably believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement; (b) to enforce our Terms of Use or to protect the security, quality or integrity of our Service; and/or (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of wikiHow, our Users, or others.

Ads on denaalatassi.com:

We may also share certain information such as your location, browser, and cookie data and other data relating to your use of our site with our business partners to deliver advertisements (“ads”) that may be of interest to you.  Denaalatssi.com may allow third-party ad servers or ad networks to serve advertisements on the site. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser or mobile device, the ads and ad links that appear on the Service, and will automatically receive your IP address when they do so. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, device identifiers, location data, and clear gifs, see above) to compile information about your browser’s or device’s visits and usage patterns on the Service and on other websites, and to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize the advertising content delivered to you.

Please note that an advertiser may ask denaalatassi.com to show an ad to a certain audience of Users (e.g., based on demographics or other interests). In that situation, denaalatassi.com or our Partners determines the target audience and wikiHow serves the advertising to that audience and only provides anonymous data to the advertiser. If you respond to such an ad, the advertiser or ad server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach.

To enhance your user experience or help us improve and measure our effectiveness, denaalatassi.com may embed code from third parties on the site. Examples of such parties may include Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google, YouTube, Howcast, VideoJug, AOL, and others. These third parties may collect information about you including IP address, cookies in ways denaalatassi.com does not control.
