This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally Identifiable Information' (PII) is being used online as well as other Non-PII that we store on your behalf. PII, as described in US privacy law and in information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

When entering your name you don't have to use your real name, it's just like a nickname for the account. Your email address is needed to sign in to your account if you are logged out. It is also possible to sign in to one account with multiple devices at the same time.

Do we use 'cookies'?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember you so you can log into your account.

They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services and features.

We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

We use cookies to:

• Understand and save user's preferences for future visits.

• Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Since each browser is a little different, look at your browser's Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

If you turn cookies off, the website and features will not function as expected.

Third-party disclosure

• We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information or any other information you store on our site such as bookmark links, notes, bookmark titles or any related data.

• Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party services on our website. These services will never be with the intent to track our user, rather to improve the user experience of the site or app (such as Unsplash background, or google fonts).

• These third-party sites we include have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites have. Nonetheless, we do not and never will use third party javascript within our bookmark manager.

• We do not use Google AdSense or any other their-party tracking tool and never will. This is something that is not considered standard practice in the industry but our hard privacy stance means we've excluded it from our practices.

Anonymous browsing

According to CalOPPA (California Online Privacy Protection Act), we agree to the following:

• Users can visit our site anonymously.

Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page or as a minimum, on the first significant page after entering our website. Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy' and can easily be found on the page specified above.

Data breaches

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

• We will notify you via email within 1 business day

• We will notify the users via in-site notification within 1 business day

WebFeeds

A WebFeed or Feed is a feature that WebCull offers that allows users to share folders from within their bookmark manager. It is important to understand that when a folder is turned into a Feed it can now be viewable and shareable to the outside world. We believe we have put in place the appropriate measures to prevent the accidental sharing of bookmarks by requiring you to both create a webfeed URL and enabling it before it would ever become visible to others. It's important to remember though, if you accidentally drag something into a WebFeed you will not be warned and it will automatically share that thing with others who have the URL. It is possible to add a password to a WebFeed to make it more private. It's up to you to create a strong password if necessary. It is good practice to not place WebFeed you own near another bookmark or stack of bookmarks that you do not want others to see.

Browser extensions

Our browser extensions are deigned to improve your experience when using WebCull. They are not designed to track your web activity or any of your personal information. They only acts as an addition to the services provided already by the WebCull bookmark manager and don't contain any ability to save your personal information besides the bookmarks you save using the extensions. We never send browsing data such as sites you visit to our servers unless you bookmark it.

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can contact us and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.

If there are any questions regarding this privacy policy, you may contact us using our social media pages or by writing us at info@webcull.com.
