Account Information

When you create an account on Wakelet, you either fill out forms with requested information on the Wakelet site or you authenticate yourself through a third-party service, like Facebook. When you authenticate through another site, you link that account with your Wakelet account. Once the accounts are linked, we may collect and store personally identifying information that you have provided to that third party service, and consented to having shared with services like us. Also, we store the email address that you provided to create your Wakelet Account and any information you fill out on the Wakelet site. We do not receive or store passwords for linked accounts.

When you link your Wakelet account with a third party service account, we will get information about you from that third party service. That information could include, for example, biographical information or your geographic location, if you have provided that information to the third party service and made it available for Wakelet to access. To the extent we obtain such information, we may store and use the information about you that we receive from third party services to improve and personalise Wakelet Services. As a general practice, we strongly urge you to make careful judgments about any personal information you disclose to Internet services, including Wakelet and any third party services you link to us.

Email Communications with Us

If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence. We may also ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them. We may also keep details of your visits to our site including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, and the resources that you access.

Occasionally, we might need to email you. We might need to send you some administrative information, tell you something important about your account or changes to our services, or update you on new policies. These administrative communications are considered part of Wakelet Services and your Wakelet account, which you may not be able to opt-out from receiving. Note that we will never email you to ask for your password or other Account information; if you receive such an email, send it to us, so we investigate and take any appropriate action.

User Content

Wakelet is for both public and private use. Whatever you share through Wakelet Services that is not created as a private display is public, and when you provide us with content on a non-private wake it is published so that anyone can view it.

Content published and shared publicly is accessible to everyone, including search engines, and you may lose any privacy rights you might have regarding that content. In addition, information shared publicly may be copied and shared throughout the Internet, including through features native to Wakelet Services, such as commenting and embedding.

While you are free to remove published pieces of content from your account, or even delete it entirely, because of the nature of Internet sharing, the strong possibility of commenting on or embedding of your content by others, and technological limitations inherent to Wakelet Services, copies of that content may exist elsewhere and be retained indefinitely, including in our systems.

Information About User Content

In some cases, we may collect information about content you provide to Wakelet Services. For example, when it's included with your images, we may collect metadata information that describes your camera, camera settings, and geolocation. This allows us to improve Wakelet Services and provide additional features and functionality.

Information Related to Use of Wakelet Services

We collect information about how people use Wakelet Services, including both Registered Users and non-registered users. This includes general usage information such as the number and frequency of visitors, which pages or features of Wakelet Services people have visited, which links on Wakelet Services they have clicked on, and the length of those visits. Some of this information may be associated with the IP Address used to access Wakelet Services, and some may be associated with your Wakelet account, such as the topics you search for and the help pages that you visit.

Information Related to Your Web Browser

We automatically receive and record information from your web browser when you interact with Wakelet Services. This information may include your browser type and version, what sort of device you are using, your operating system and version, your language preference, the website or service that referred you to Wakelet Services, the date and time of each web request you make, your screen display information, and information from any cookies we have placed on your web browser.

IP Address Information

We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration, to fight spam, malware and identity theft, and to report aggregate information to our advertisers, if any. We also may use it to personalise Wakelet Services for you and to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use Wakelet Services.

Location Information

In some cases we collect and store information about where you are located, such as by converting your IP Address into a rough geolocation. We may use location information to improve and personalise Wakelet Services for you.

Information Related to Your Mobile Device

We may collect and store information related to your mobile device. We may use this information to provide or improve Wakelet Services.

Information Collected Using Cookies

Like many websites, we use "cookie" technology to collect additional website usage data and to provide you with a good experience when you browse Wakelet. This also allows us to improve our site.

A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer's hard disk. Wakelet may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Services, and to customize and improve our Services. Our cookies do not, by themselves, contain information that personally identifies you. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of Wakelet. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon you visit Wakelet.

Information About Your Contacts

When you create your Wakelet account, and authenticate via a third party service like Twitter, Wakelet Services may collect, store, and periodically update the contact lists associated with that linked account, so that, for example, we can make it easy for you to connect with your existing contacts from that service who are also on Wakelet.

Email Tracking

To measure the deliverability of our emails to users, we may embed information, such as a web beacon or tag, in them.

We never share information we receive from you unless:

(a) we have your permission to share that information; or

(b) we have given you prior notice that the information will be shared, and with whom; or

(c) that information is aggregate information or other information that does not identify you.

Information You Share with the Public Through Wakelet Services

Information posted through Wakelet Services is, by default, published and shared with the public. That includes anything you choose to publish, post on, or submit to Wakelet. Because this kind of information can be seen by anyone and can be indexed by search engines, you should exercise care in what you choose to submit; make sure everything you submit is something you want to share with everyone. If you create unlisted wakes then this information will be shared with anyone to whom you have given access to the link of that unlisted wake and anyone to whom those persons have given access. If you create private wakes then this information will not be shared with anyone unless you choose to make it available.

Information You Share with Third Party Services

Our content platform enables you to access third party services through Wakelet Services. For example, users can embed externally-pointing links in their content; users can click on those links to reach other sites and services. We also enable users to share information that you provide to us, like posts and comments, with other services. For example, users may share your posts on Twitter and Facebook.

This Privacy Policy only covers information we collect. It does not cover information collected by other services. If you access third party services through Wakelet Services, you are responsible for reading and understanding those other services' privacy policies.

Information We Share with Our Agents and Third Parties

In some circumstances, we might share information that we store, like IP addresses, with third party Agents for the purposes of operating and improving Wakelet Services. Those Agents might include contracted service providers or consultants. For example, we may share information with contracted service providers in order to fight spam. Or we might give third-party consultants limited access to information as they work to improve our processes and technology. When we share information with Agents under those circumstances, we generally bind them with confidentiality agreements. Unless we tell you differently, our Agents will not have any right to use personal information or any other information we share with them beyond the scope and duration of what is necessary to assist us. You hereby consent to our sharing of personal information with our Agents.

We may share or disclose non-private information, aggregate information, or other non-personal information with people and entities with which we are doing business.

Information Disclosed Pursuant to Business Transfers

We may buy or sell business assets. In these transactions, user information is typically one of the transferred business assets. Likewise, if we, or substantially all of our assets, get acquired, or if we go out of business or enter 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 us or our assets may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others

We try to protect you from having your privacy violated through abuse of the legal system, whether attempted by individuals, entities, or governments. It is our policy to insist upon jurisdiction and proper legal process for governmental information requests, and to contest claims we believe to be unwarranted by the law. At the same time, we also reserve the right to access, preserve, and disclose information as we reasonably believe is necessary, in our sole discretion, to (i) satisfy a valid law, regulation, legal process, governmental request, or governmental order, (ii) enforce this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations hereof, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, including exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and the prevention of spam and malware, (iv) respond to user support requests, or (v) protect the rights, property, health or safety of us, our users, any third parties or the public in general.

Information We Share with Your Consent or at Your Request

If you ask us to release information that we have about your account, we will do so if reasonable and not unduly burdensome.

The Security of Your Information

Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.

You may also send us an e-mail at admin@wakelet.com to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We cannot delete your personal information except by also deleting your user account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

If you delete your User Content from Wakelet, copies of your User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other Website users.

How to Delete Your Account and What Happens When You Delete Your Account

If you want to delete your Account, we will enable you to do this in your account settings page. This is currently under development and will be available soon.. Deleting your Account will not entirely remove the content you have published from our systems, because of caching, backups, or other references to your account.

Changes to This Privacy Policy
