Information You Share with Us
We get information from you when you give it to us. This happens when you make an account, fill in a form, send us things through our Services, buy a membership, talk to us on other websites, ask for help, or just talk to us in any way.
The kinds of personal information we might gather include things like your name, username, email, stuff about your business, things you share like pictures and articles, and anything else you decide to tell us.
Sometimes, we might get information about other people from you, like when you login on our website. We’ll only use this info to do what you asked, and we won’t message your friends or contacts unless they say it’s okay or they interact with us on their own.
Information We Get Automatically When You Use Our Website
Sometimes, we gather certain information all by itself:
- Activity Info
We keep track of what you do on our site, like what you read, who you follow, and what you like.
- Transactional Info
When you login on our website, we note down details about your login, like when you did it.
- Device and Usage Info
We keep track of how you use our website, like what kind of device you’re using, your internet connection, and some technical details. We also know when you visit, which pages you look at, and how you got here from another website.
- Info Gathered Using Cookies and Similar Tracking Tools
The website use some special tools like cookies and web beacons to gather info about you. Cookies are tiny files that sit on your computer and help us make our website better. They show us what parts of our site people like and count how many visits we get. Web beacons are little pictures we use on our site and in emails to do similar things, like helping with cookies and counting visits.
Wiselancer and others might use this information to do things like figuring out which stuff is popular, showing you things you might like, and understanding how you use the internet. If you want to know more about cookies and how to turn them off, check out “Your Choices” below.
Information We Get from Other Sources
We get some info about you from other companies. This could be from social media, accounting services, or data analysis companies. If you use a different website like Apple, Facebook, Google, or Twitter to make or sign in to your Wiselancer account, we might see some of your info from that website, like your name, who your friends with, your birthday, and your profile picture. This happens because you give permission to that website.
Information We Figure Out
We might guess or make educated guesses about you by looking at the info we have. For instance, we might guess where you are by checking your IP address or figure out what you like to read by looking at what you have read before.
How We Use Information
We gather information to make our services better. This includes showing user-created stuff, making posts you like, and running our paid content system. We also use the info for:
- Create and keep your Wiselancer account.
- Handle transactions and send you stuff like confirmations, receipts, and surveys about your experience.
- Email you important technical updates, security warnings, and messages for help or admin purposes.
- Answer your comments and questions and help you with any customer service needs.

We tell you when we share your personal information, and it happens in these situations:
- We let other people using our services see some of your personal details. For instance, if you make posts, leave comments, or send private messages, they might see things like your name, photo, a short description about you, and what you’ve been doing on our website, like reactions, recent posts, who follows you and who you follow, and comments.
- We give some of your personal information to companies we work with, like those who help us with website stuff, payments, data analysis, marketing, customer service, and security. They need this info to do their job for us.
- We might share your personal information if we think we have to by law or if the government asks for it to meet safety or legal rules. If we have to give your personal information because of a legal request, we’ll tell you, unless it’s against the law or could harm others or lead to illegal actions. We’ll also challenge legal requests if we think they’re not right.
- We might tell others about your personal information if we think you’re not following our rules, breaking the law, or if we need to keep Wiselancer, the public, our users, or anyone else safe.
- We give your personal information to our lawyers and other expert advisors when we need their help to get advice or take care of our website.
- We might share your personal info when we’re talking about or working on things like combining with another company, selling parts of our business, getting money, or being bought by another firm.
- We exchange personal information with Wiselancer, its current and future parent companies, related companies, and other companies that we control or own.
- We only share your personal information when you say it’s okay or tell us to do so.
- We also share information that’s mixed together or changed so it can’t be used to figure out who you are.
Wiselancer doesn’t store some of the stuff you see on our website. People who use our website can share things that are actually kept by another company, but we show them on our pages. When you click on these things, they can tell the other company that you interacted with them, just like if you went to the other company’s website yourself.
Let’s say you open a Wiselancer article that has a YouTube video inside it, and you start watching the video. YouTube gets to know some things about what you’re doing, like your IP address and how much of the video you’re watching. Wiselancer doesn’t have control over what YouTube or other companies gather from these embedded things or what they do with that information.
You can change, fix, remove, or get a copy of your account details whenever you want by logging into the Services. However, remember that if you decide to delete your account, we might still keep some of your information because we have to follow the law or for our valid business reasons.
Many web browsers automatically accept cookies. But if you want, you can change your browser settings to delete or say no to cookies. Keep in mind that doing this might make our Services not work as well or even not work at all.
You can choose not to get some messages from us, like newsletters and updates, by doing what the messages say or by going to your account’s page. But if you do this, we might still send you important emails, like ones about your account or our business stuff.
If you say it’s okay, we might send you pop-up messages on your phone. But you can turn these off whenever you want by changing your phone’s notification settings.

If someone else, like a friend or family member, asks for your info on your behalf, we might need proof that they’re allowed to do this. They might need to show they have your permission or the right legal papers. We might also need to make sure it’s really them. If you’re someone who’s asking for info for someone else, get in touch with us.

- When we have a good reason to use your personal information for our business, like making our products better, keeping our services running, studying data, or talking to you.
