In this Privacy Policy we, WC Inc. (“Western Computer”), describe our data collection and usage practices with respect to information we collect from visitors of web and mobile sites on which we post this Privacy Policy, including at http://westerncomputer.com and http://resources.westerncomputer.com (the “Sites”) or using other products or services we provide (“Services”).

We do not sell your information to any third party. We use the information you give us on these Sites only for our communications with you, to provide Services you have requested, and to improve our Services to you and all our customers.

If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, then you must not access or use the Services or our Sites. Our Services may be offered through or in connection with third-party mobile applications or third party websites. When you participate in the Services you are leaving the third party mobile application or website through which you accessed the Services.

Cookies will also record registration information regarding your login name and password, if you register to access our support portal.

Combination or by Aggregation of Information.  We may combine information that your device transmits, information that you actively submit and information that we obtain from third-party sources.

Customers or partners that are hosted on, accessed by or routed through the Sites should consult the privacy and other policies of third parties through whom they are providing information.

Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, and our Sites are not currently set up to respond to those signals for tracking on our Sites. 

The Western Computer Sites implement and use Google Display Advertising, and Google Analytics based on Displayed Advertising (e.g., Remarketing). Our Sites use Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise online. Third-party vendors, including Google, show the ads on sites across the Internet. Our Sites and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on someone’s past visits to our Sites. For more information and to customize your settings for Google Ads, please visit Google Ad Preference Manager. You may also visit Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.
