Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy lets you know how your personal information is processed and used. We promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Policy. The following policies are only in effect for the Web pages, newsletters, and opt-in announcement lists owned and operated by World Rally Sport Media Inc., ("World Rally Sport" or “WRS”) within the WRS Network (the “WRS Network” includes all Web sites and certain other Internet media properties hyper linked from the Web site and owned by World Rally Sport Media Inc.). The following discloses our Privacy Policy.

What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" or IP address. When a visitor requests a page from any Web site within the WRS Network, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site.

Our Web servers also track information about the type of Internet browser you are using, which operating system you are using, as well as which of WRS' Web pages you have accessed. This information is used to help our team develop Web sites to display properly for the majority of our visitors. Our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.

WRS does collect non-personally identifiable information about visitors and users such as behavioral data, which includes user activity on the WRS Network. WRS also collects non-personally identifiable information about visitors and users such as demographic data, which includes information such as gender, age, state or province of residence, country of residence, etc. This non-personally identifiable information is voluntarily submitted by you and is used by WRS on an aggregate basis, in which WRS will not know or track any individual identity in association with the data collected.

This non-personally identifiable information will be used and analyzed by WRS to track detailed site activity, measure content-specific performance and traffic, and identify trends and patterns in user behavior on the WRS Network. This information will help WRS to optimize site administration, content management, and our marketing and advertising efforts. WRS reserves the right to share non-personally identifiable information with outside third parties but ensures that this information is not traceable to any specific identity and that this information will not be used to contact you.

Does World Rally Sport use cookies?

Yes, World Rally Sport uses cookies. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies are often used to provide you with a customized experience. At no time is any personal information stored within one of our cookies.

Accepting cookies through your browser is a personal choice. You can sill enjoy WRS' Web sites if you choose not to accept cookies.

What information do you collect when I complete the "Contact Us" form?

Any information supplied through our contact forms is used to aid our business, to respond to your request, and provide you with the necessary information.

Why is my Birth date necessary for registration?

Your date of birth is needed to verify that you are of legal age to access and use the WRS Network. You must be at least thirteen (13) years old to register for the WRS Network and have parental or guardian consent to use the WRS Network if you’re under the age of nineteen (19) (see “Terms and Conditions”). WRS requires users to provide their date of birth for age verification purposes in order to protect minors and the WRS community at large. By requiring users to provide their date of birth during registration, we avoid having to use other methods of age verification such as requesting Credit Card information or more detailed personal information.

What is my Email address used for?

Your email address is used to verify your account during registration to the WRS Network and to identify your account when you are logging in to or logging out of a session on the WRS Network. Your email is also used for aggressive notification purposes set during account registration, but you can customize or opt-out of receiving email notifications altogether at any time by going into your account settings and checking/un-checking the appropriate fields.

Your email address may also be used by WRS to contact you in order to resend you your password in the event that you happen to forget it.

Your email address may be entered to receive WRS’ electronic newsletter when circulation is initiated. You can un-subscribe to this Newsletter at anytime.

Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?

WRS will not sell or otherwise provide the information we collect to outside third parties for the purpose of direct or indirect mass email marketing.

WRS will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:

Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on WRS,

Protect and defend the rights or property of the WRS Network of sites and related properties, or visitors to the WRS Network of sites and related properties,

Identify persons who may be violating the law, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing the WRS Network or its related properties,

What safeguards are in place?

WRS is obligated to protect your personal information by making reasonable security arrangements against such risks as unauthorized access, use, collection, disclosure or disposal. Security measures have been integrated into the design, implementation and day-to-day operating practices as part of WRS' commitment to protect the personal information it holds.

What else should I know about my privacy when online?

The WRS Network contains many hyperlinks to third party Web sites. WRS is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third party Web sites or advertisers. WRS does not share any of the individual personal information you provide WRS with the third parties to which WRS links. Please check with those Web sites to determine their privacy policy.

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example through e-mail, discussion lists, or elsewhere - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. WRS will not be liable or responsible for publicly posted personally identifiable information and/or the results that come from such actions.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.

Consent To This Agreement

By using the WRS Network, you consent to the collection and use of information by WRS as specified above. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. Your continued use of the WRS Network after any changes to our privacy policy have been made and posted will constitute your acceptance of any such changes made.

If you do not agree with this privacy policy, then you may not access any part of the WRS Network that requires registered membership on to browse and use.
