WATT Website Privacy Statement

Collection and Use of Information

In order to conduct business, WATT collects, retains and uses personal information. The collection of this information, and use by WATT, occurs for reasonable and publicly justifiable business purposes. Specific to internet-related activities, personal information collected is acquired and used solely for administering existing and prospective employee, partner and client relationships. When you provide your information to WATT through use of our Website, Social Media, and social/event web applications with WATT, we collect your contact information such as name, telephone number, mailing address and email address. When you visit WATT’s website, we automatically collect information from your device through the use of cookies* and similar technologies.

Consent to Collect and Use Personal Information

Consent for collection and use of personal information is either implied, or express. In most cases we rely on implied consent where the law and accepted business practice indicate this is the acceptable choice. This includes your interactions with WATT via use of our Website, Social Media, and social/event web applications. Where the sensitivity of the information or its use warrants express consent for use of personal information, WATT will seek express consent by use of an additional privacy clearance from users. From time to time, certain necessary uses of personal information require WATT to share some of the information with an outside party. This situation is rare. WATT does not disclose personal information to 3rd parties without express consent.
