What we do with your information

When that's not the case, we must demonstrate that we have another legal basis, such as our legitimate business interests.

WTI’s Privacy Commitment
WTI has worried about customer and user privacy for almost 10 years, long before it became fashionable, politically correct, or legally binding to take such a position. We ask for only the least amount of information necessary, gathering only what is essential for doing business. By far, our biggest commitment is that we do not make a single dollar from advertising revenue—never have, never will. means we avoid the fundamental conflict of interest between gathering customer information and fueling advertising revenue, and the unavoidable compromises in customer privacy that it brings.
The goal of this policy is to make explicit the information we gather on our customers and users, how we will use it, and how we will not. This policy is unfortunately longer than we would like, but we must unambiguously address all the relevant cases. We will try and keep the language simple and direct as much as possible.
