Wordwide follows personal data guidelines outlined in CCPA and GDPR and does not sell personal information about its users to third parties.

This privacy policy, together with the terms of use posted on our website, set forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our website and mobile app. Depending on your activities when visiting our website or mobile app, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

This privacy policy is posted on the website and you may review it any time if you have any questions. It may change from time to time without notice. Any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised privacy policy.

WHEN YOU ACCESS OUR WEBSITE AND/OR MOBILE APP, YOU AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, OR TO ANY CHANGES WE MAY SUBSEQUENTLY MAKE, IMMEDIATELY STOP ACCESSING OUR WEBSITE AND/OR MOBILE APP.

Our Commitment to Privacy

Wordwide is committed to protecting your privacy and will make reasonable efforts to provide you a safe and secure user experience. We aim to make our privacy policy easy to read so you that you understand our online data collection practices and usage policies for Wordwideagency.com (the “Site”). Our Privacy Policy is integral to your use of our Site.

Scope of the Privacy Policy

The Privacy Policy applies to all information you provide to Wordwide through the Site. If you have submitted information to any third parties through our Site and Gettherefferal.com Service, we cannot be responsible for any information collected by those third parties.

What Information GTR Collects

Collection of Contact Information

For customers to add referrals on the GTR platform, GTR needs references from the customer. For this purpose, while completing the referral form on our App , GTR collects and monitors your contact information which includes name, phone number, email address and other optional data like relationship and structural address to enable you to auto fill the data during the add referral process. This information is required for the purposes of risk analysis, enabling GTR to detect credible references, assess your risk profile and to determine your referral eligibility. 

GTR generally collects two types of information—personally identifiable information (“PII”) and non-personally identifiable information (“Non-PII”). PII is any information that can be used to specifically identify you as an individual. For example, you may submit and GTR may collect your name, email address, address, phone number, or similar information through the Site. Non-PII consists of information that does not specifically identify you. The following sections describe how GTR collects and uses your PII and Non-PII.

Types of information Wordwide and GTR collects

GTR collects two kinds of information about users: (a) information that you provide which personally identifies you; and (b) information that does not personally identify you which Wordwide and GTR automatically collect when you visit the Wordwide and/or GTR website or mobile app.

  • Personally Identifiable Information: Personally identifiable information (“PII”) includes any information that may be used to specifically identify or contact you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, IP address, etc. GTR follows GDPR and CCPA guidelines to classify PII. As a general policy, to facilitate the use of the website and mobile app, you must provide personally identifiable information when registering. You agree to provide such information in the terms of use.

  • Non-Personal Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our Site and what other sites may have directed you to us. This information, which is collected in a variety of different ways, is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Website’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that points to the site you just came from, which URL you go to after visiting our Site, what browser you are using, and other non-identifiable information.

How We Collect Your Information

We may use PII to deliver information to you and contact you regarding administrative notices. If you send us an email with questions or comments, we may use your PII to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. For security reasons, we do not recommend that you send non-public personal information, such as passwords, social security numbers, or bank account information, to us by email. Finally, we may use your PII to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our agreements with you, including our Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy.

Depending on how you use our service, we may store cookies on your computer in order to collect certain aggregate data about our users and to customize certain aspects of your specific user experience.

We may use cookies to perform tasks such as: monitoring aggregate site usage metrics, storing and remembering your passwords (if you allow us to do so), storing account and advertising preferences that you have set, and personalizing the Services we make available to you. However, we do not use cookies to track your browsing behaviors.

We may analyze the information derived from cookies and match this information with data provided by you or another party.
