When you log on to Worthwhisland.com, we collect other information from you such as your IP address and browser type. We may use this information to gather statistics about our site.

Personally Identifiable Information: If you choose to make a purchase we will request personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, address, phone number, email address and debit/credit card information. In addition, we may use such information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyze site usage, improve our content and product offerings, and customize our site’s content, layout and services. We may use information to contact you and deliver information to you, such as through e-mail updates.
Third Parties: We may use internal service providers to facilitate our services, and therefore, may provide some of your personally identifiable information directly to them. In addition, we employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as sending postal mail and email, analyzing data, processing credit card payments and providing customer service. These companies and individuals have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for any other purpose.
Security: We care about the security of your transactions and use standard industry practices to safeguard your credit card information. We use high-grade encryption and the secure https protocol to communicate with your browser software, which guards against interception of the credit card information you give us. We also employ several different security techniques to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the organization. You should be aware, however, that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet; third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. You should not expect that your personally identifiable information will remain private.
Your Friends: You can voluntarily provide the email addresses of your friends to invite them to Worthwhisland.com. We will use those email addresses to invite your friends to our site.
Choices: If you or your friends do not want information stored by us, you or they can contact us at Worthwhisland.com to be deleted from our database.
Security: To protect your personal information, accounts are password-protected, and we do our best to restrict access to customer information to those individuals who need access in order to perform their jobs. Please note, however, that we cannot guarantee the security of customer account information.
Sharing of Information: We may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances. We cooperate with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties, to enforce laws such as those regarding intellectual property rights, fraud and other personal rights. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement or other activity that is illegal or may expose us or you to liability.
