Privacy Policy

Put simply: we will NEVER share your information with anyone!

This policy covers how we treat personal information that World Memory Championships Ltd (WMC), and the World Memory Sports Council (WMSC) collects and receives, including information related to your past use of products and services. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that WMC does not own or control, or to people that we do not employ or manage. In addition, certain WMC services may have their own associated privacy statements.

Collecting Information 
WMC collects personal information when you register with us, when you use our products or services, when you visit our web pages or the pages of certain WMC partners, and when you enter promotions or sweepstakes. WMC may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies. When you register we ask for information such as your name, email address, birth date, gender, zip code, occupation, industry, and personal interests. Once you register with WMC and sign in to our services, you are not anonymous to us. WMC automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, WMC cookie information, and the page you request. WMC uses information for the following general purposes: to customize the advertising and content you see, fulfil your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.

Cookies
WMC may set and access �cookies� on your computer. WMC lets other companies that show advertisements on some of our pages set and access their cookies on your computer. Other companies’ use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to WMC cookies.

Your Information
You can edit your WMC account information at any time. We reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to the WMC service, such as service announcements, administrative messages and the WMC Newsletter, that are considered part of your WMC account, without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them. You can delete your account by contacting secretary@worldmemorychampionships.com

Confidentiality and Security 
We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect personal information about you.

Protecting Your Information
WMC does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies except to provide products or services you’ve requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:
We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with WMC Ltd under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use your personal information to help WMC communicate with you about offers from us and our marketing partners. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.
We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims;
We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of WMC’s terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.
We transfer information about you if WMC is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, WMC will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Policy Updates
WMC may update this policy. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending a notice to the primary email address specified in your WMC account or by placing a prominent notice on our site.
