Thank you for using the services available through the Wormhole mobile application and the website at the domain name wits-app.com, each, that are provided by Wormhole Information Technology System, Inc. (the “Wormhole Service”).


At Wormhole, we strive to make your online experience with us as entertaining and satisfying as possible. This Privacy Policy describes and governs what information we gather from you, how we use that information, and what we do to protect it. Because the use of the Wormhole Service first requires acceptance of the Privacy Policy, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with it. Specifically, this Privacy Policy governs any personal information and non-personal information collected when you use the Wormhole Service.


Your use of the Wormhole Service and any personal information you provide through the Wormhole Service is at all times subject to this Privacy Policy and the Wormhole Terms of Service and the Wormhole End User License Agreement, each of which is incorporated into the Privacy Policy. By using the Wormhole Service, you expressly consent to the information handling practices described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not want information about you to be collected and used in the manner described in this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Wormhole Service. This Privacy Policy is expressly incorporated into both our Terms of Service and End User License Agreement.


In general, the types and amount of personally identifiable information we collect vary depending on the activity. Wormhole endeavors to limit the collection of personally identifiable information to the information we believe is minimally necessary to achieve our stated collection purposes.


Wormhole collects two types of data about Users: (1) information that you or others voluntarily submit to us (described below under User-Supplied Information) and (2) technical data automatically collected from all visitors to the Wormhole Service (described below under Automatically Collected Data).


User-Supplied Information: In using the Wormhole Service, for example when you register with us, or if you send us an email, you will provide Wormhole with data generally called personally identifiable information. If you choose to provide such information, you are giving Wormhole permission to use and store that information consistent with this Privacy Policy. Additionally, please know that when you register or sign in to the Wormhole Service, you are not anonymous to us.

Automatically Collected Data: The Wormhole Service operating on a website automatically logs non-personally identifiable information such as Internet Protocol address (IP Address), a unique user ID, the content and pages that you access on the Wormhole Service and the dates and times that you visit the Wormhole Service. Also, if you come to the Wormhole Service via a link from another site, we may track the source of that link.


Information Regarding Cookies: Like many other websites, the Wormhole Service may send one or more cookies (small text files with a unique identifier that are transferred to your browser) to your computer.  Wormhole may use cookies to track user traffic patterns as described above. Wormhole may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Wormhole Service. Persistent cookies can be removed. You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser, however, some features on the Wormhole Service may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. Please review your web browser Help file to modify your cookie settings.


We may collect information about you from other sources, including from partners and commercially available sources (such as data aggregators and public databases), including YouTube API Services, Google, and Facebook Connect.

Wormhole uses personally identifiable information to establish and enhance our relationship with you. Wormhole does so in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”), the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), to comply as a service provider with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable laws.

Wormhole uses the information that we collect from Users to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our Users, to improve the way the Wormhole Service works and looks, and to create new features and functionality. Further, Wormhole may use automatically-collected data to: (a) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit Wormhole; (b) monitor your participation in various sections of the Wormhole Service; (c) customize our service to you, including by providing you with recommendations and (c) monitor aggregate site usage metrics such as the total number of visitors and pages viewed.

If you do not want to have us contact you for these purposes in the future, you can opt-out.

Also, we require developers to explain their privacy practices to you by providing a link to their privacy policy or a similar expression of their privacy practices.
