How We Collect and Use Information
We collect the following types of information about you:
Information you provide us directly:
We ask for certain information such as your username, real name, birth year, country, and e-mail address when you register for a Listening Wisdom account. We may also retain any messages you send through the Service, and may collect information you provide in User Content you post to the Service. We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service. Your username and if you choose to disclose it, your real name, will be published as a member of the Listening Wisdom community and on this site only.
We may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools and services, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information in aggregate form such that it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual user.
Log file information:
Log file information is automatically reported by your browser or mobile device each time you access the Service. When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information. These server logs may include anonymous information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.
Sharing of Your Information
We will not rent or sell your information to third parties outside Listening Wisdom.
1. Who can see User Content: Any User Content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Service becomes available to the public and cannot be removed, except by Listening Wisdom in its sole discretion. Once posted on Listening Wisdom, User Content may not be removable from public view, as copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, on other sites that have republished us, or if other Users have copied or saved that information. If you do not wish your User Content to be available to the public, please don’t post it on Listening Wisdom. Your username and if you choose to disclose it, your real name, will be published publicly. Once published your username and / or real name may not be able to be removed.
1. Who can see your IP address: If you post User Content on the Service while not logged in, your IP address will be published with your User Content in order to attribute your contribution to the Service. A selection of Trusted Users with administrative powers on Listening Wisdom have the ability to review IP addresses of users to reduce abusive behavior. Any third party service embedded on Listening Wisdom such as an advertiser, video provider, social network or other third party will also have access to your IP address.
2. Who can see your email address: If you enter an email address, you will enable communication from Listening Wisdom and other Users. If you reply to users or participate in group Listening Wisdom activities such as meetups, your email address will be shared with these users. In addition, some email addresses such as email@example.com forward to a group of Trusted Users, who will use your email address to reply to the email.

How We Store and Protect Your Information
Storage and Processing:
Keeping your information safe:
Listening Wisdom cares about the security of your information, and uses commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of all information collected through the Service. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from Listening Wisdom, at all times. However, Listening Wisdom cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Listening Wisdom or guarantee that information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed. Your privacy settings may also be affected by changes to the functionality of third party sites and services that you add to the Listening Wisdom Service, such as social networks. Listening Wisdom is not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third party.
Compromise of information:
In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, Listening Wisdom will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised and take other steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.

You control your account information and settings: You may update your account information and email-communication preferences at any time by logging in to your account and changing your profile settings. You can also stop receiving promotional email communications from us by modifying your preferences at https://listeningwisdom.org/Special:Preferences.
We make every effort to promptly process all unsubscribe requests.
