Welcome. The information below explains how Work At Home Vintage Experts LLC (the “Company”) collects, uses, and discloses information collected via our website, located at www.wahve.com  (the “Website”). By ensuring that you are aware of and understand our Privacy Notice, we can provide you with better service. Please take a moment to read the following notice to learn how we handle your personal information.

The Company (“we” or “us” or “our”) understands that individuals and companies with whom we conduct business, and who share their information with us, value their privacy. We are committed to taking reasonable steps to protect your privacy online and manage your information responsibly.  This Privacy Notice is intended to notify you of our online privacy practices, the type of information that may be collected and stored, how the information is used, with whom the information may be shared, what choices are available to you regarding the collection, use and distribution of the information, what kind of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control, and who to contact with questions or concerns.

By using the Website and/or by contacting us and providing any personal information, you consent to the collection, transfer, storage, disclosure and use of information by us in accordance with this Privacy Notice.  If we decide to change our Privacy Notice, we will post those changes on this page.

Why We Collect Information

We collect personal information because it helps us connect with clients and vintage professionals, as well as deliver our services.  For example, if you apply to become a wahve, we need to have information such as your contact information, employment status, work experience and other information about your availability in order to determine whether you are a good fit for us.  We also may correlate your personal information obtained from you with information from other sources.  For example, if you provide us with your personal information as part of an application process, we may cross-check that against information that might be otherwise available through other entities for verification and quality control purposes.

What Information We Collect

The following generally describes the type of information we may collect about you. Those who wish to communicate with us but do not wish to provide personally identifiable information online may contact us through the address or phone numbers provided on our Website.  However, you should note that if you contact us by phone or via postal mail, you may still be submitting personally identifiable information to us.

If you apply to be a wahve, we will request your name, phone number, email address and information about your work experience, educational background, skills, licenses and designations, professional associations, availability and other background information. We will not share this information with any prospective employers without your permission.

If you are interested in hiring one or more of wahves, we will collect certain information, such as your name, email address, phone number, tax information and certain technical information pertaining to your company’s computer systems.

We collect information in three primary ways:

1.You Give Us Information: We collect information from you when you submit it to us through our Website or via electronic mail, telephone or facsimile.

2.We Collect Information Automatically: We automatically collect certain types of information when you visit our Website. For example, we automatically collect various types of technical information when you use our Website as otherwise described in this Privacy Notice.

3.We Collect Information from Other Sources: We may obtain information about you from outside sources.  For example, we may obtain commercially available information about you from third parties or purchase e-mail lists from third parties for advertising and marketing purposes.   We may also receive information from third-parties who provide services for us through web-beacons and other technologies as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Notice.

Information You Submit To Us

We do not automatically collect personally identifiable information unless you voluntarily input this information, such as during a registration or application process, when you submit questions or comments, request information or enter into an agreement with us.  Should you voluntarily provide us with personally identifiable information, you consent to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

Information Collected During General Browsing

Even if you do not submit personal information through the Website, we gather navigational information about where visitors go on the Website and information about the technical efficiencies of our Website and services (i.e., time to connect to the Website, time to download pages, etc.). This information allows us to see which areas of our Website are most visited and helps us better understand the user experience. This information also helps us improve the quality of the Website by recognizing and delivering more of the features, areas, and services our visitors prefer. In this process of gathering information, we may collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information (for example, domain type, browser type and version, service provider and IP address, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click-stream data). We may also create and use electronic records to compile statistics about how our visitors collectively interact with our Website.

1.Use of Cookies

Cookies are bits of electronic information that a website may transfer to a visitor’s computer to identify specific information about the visitor’s visits to the website.  The Website uses a browser feature known as a cookie, which assigns a unique identification to your computer. Cookies are typically stored on your computer’s hard drive and are used to help track clicks as you go through the pages within our Website. We may also use cookies to tell us whether you have previously visited the Website. We also use cookies which may be set by third-parties with whom we have entered into agreements which may enable us to obtain analytics information about the use of our Website.  You can set your browser not to accept cookies or to notify you when you are sent a cookie, giving you the opportunity to decide whether or not to accept it.  You may also use commonly available tools in your browser to remove cookies which may have been placed onto your computer.  Shared local objects (commonly referred to as “FLASH cookies”) are cookies that are placed on your computer that are not removed through normal browser management tools. We will not use FLASH cookies in a manner inconsistent with the purposes for which they were designed unless you are specifically notified that we intend to use them for a specific service.

2.Use of Web Beacons, Clear-GIFs, Pixel Tags and JavaScript

We also may use “pixel tags” (also called “action pixels,” “web beacons” or “clear gifs”) and/or JavaScript plug-ins, placed on our Website and in our emails to you. These web beacons and plug-ins are small graphic images (typically that you cannot see) or code on a website or in an email message which are used for such things as recording webpages and advertisements clicked-on by a user, or for tracking the performance of email marketing campaigns. These devices help us analyze our users’ online behavior and measure the effectiveness of our website and our marketing. We also work with third-party service providers that help us track, collect, and analyze this information.  Third-party entities with whom we have agreements may place these devices on the website and/or in emails to use information obtained from them such as pages viewed, items purchased, emails opened and items upon which you may click in emails.  These third-party providers may also place cookies onto your computer. Those third-party cookies may enable us to obtain aggregate demographic information and user statistics about you and your preferences from these third-party sources as well as our information we have about you.

3.Server Logs

A web “server log” is a record of activity created by a computer that delivers certain webpages to your browser.  Certain activities that you perform on our Website may record information in server logs. For example, if you enter a search term into a search box located on the Website, the server log may record the search term, the link you clicked on to bring you to our Website and/or information about your browser, such as your IP address and the cookies set on your browser.

4.Search Queries on Our Website

We may provide you with options to search for information on our Website.  If you enter information in a search query box, we may store that information and we may aggregate that information with other information we may have about the browser and/or IP address from which the search query originated.

5.Surveys

From time to time, we may request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose any information to us. Information requested may include contact information, demographic information and other personal information. The aggregate, non-personally identifiable information collected from all survey respondents may be shared with third-parties who sponsor such surveys.  If your information gathered via a survey will be used in a manner different from that described in this Privacy Notice, such use will be detailed in the survey instructions.

How We Use the Information We Collect

We use the information we collect in a variety of ways.  Generally, using all of the above mentioned, and similar type tools, we may collect, aggregate, and use information from or about you such as data about the type of browser and operating system used, your geographical location, which webpages you view, the time and duration of your visits to our Website, the search queries you may use on this Website and any other submissions you may make, whether you clicked on any items or links on the Website, whether you have clicked on any links in any emails sent from us, or third-parties on our behalf, whether you have chosen to opt-out of certain services or information sharing, and whether you have viewed or ordered certain products or services.

We may also share personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information externally with our affiliates and business partners, as well as with other third-party service providers who help us provide operational services for the Website and our business, which might include, but is not necessarily limited to: business entities that provide e-mail address management and communication contact services, network equipment and application management providers and hosting entities,  credit and debit card payment gateways and processors and the issuing and acquiring banks involved in the funds settlement procedures necessary to charge your cards or financial accounts, entities which obtain information such as demographic information which might be aggregated with information we have about you, judicial, administrative and/or legal or financial accounting providers in the event that information must be reviewed or released in response to civil and/or criminal investigations, claims, lawsuits, or if we are subject to judicial or administrative process (such as a subpoena) to release your information or to prosecute or defend legal actions, and other service providers which may be involved in the other types of services and activities otherwise discussed in this Privacy Notice.

We may also use your personally identifiable information to contact you in ways other than e-mail or regular mail, such as via telephone contact or facsimile. All use of personally identifiable information will be as permitted by applicable law.

Business Transfers

If Company or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Company goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Company may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Notice.

Visitors to the Website Outside of the United States

If you are visiting the Website from a location outside of the United States, your connection will be through and to servers located in the United States. All information you receive from the Website will be created on servers located in the United States, and all information you provide will be maintained on web servers and systems located within the United States. The data protection laws in the United States and other countries might not be as those in your country.  By using this Website and/or submitting information to us, you specifically consent to the transfer of your information to the United States to the facilities and servers we use, and to those with whom we may share your information.

Updating Personal Information

We prefer to keep your personal information accurate and up-to-date. If you would like to change your contact information, please send an email to info@wahve.com.

Links

For your convenience, the Website may contain links to other websites.  We are not responsible for the privacy practices, advertising, products, or the content of such other websites. None of the links should be deemed to imply that we endorse or have any affiliation with the links.

Security

We believe in providing a safe and secure experience for all of our online visitors. To that end, we have implemented security measures to protect the information collected from you. We maintain reasonable physical and electronic safeguards designed to limit unauthorized access to your personally identifiable information, and to protect you against the criminal misuse of that information.

We use data encryption technology when transferring and receiving your sensitive personal information, such as during an application process. For example, in your transactions submitted by you through the website, a solid key icon or a locked padlock icon at the lower portion of your web browser window confirms the Website is secured through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Pages requesting personal information should always have one of these icons. You can also confirm your data is being encrypted by looking at the URL line of your browser (the place where you type website addresses). When accessing a secure server, the Website address will change from “http” to “https”.

While we use the foregoing security measures to protect your information, please note that no data transmitted over the Internet or stored and utilized for business purposes can be guaranteed to be completely secure.  No security measures are perfect or impenetrable.  We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We cannot ensure that information you share on the Website will not become publicly available. You can reduce these risks by using common sense security practices such as choosing a strong password, using different passwords for different services, and using up to date antivirus software
