We also collect information about Website visitors indirectly through standard Web logs, such as IP addresses, browser types (e.g. Internet Explorer), areas of the Website that are visited and the Website from which a visitor came. We routinely use this Web log information in the aggregate in order to administer and improve our Website. While some of this data may be traceable to an individual, We only seek to identify individuals whom We believe are using our Website for improper purposes.
If You make a purchase on the Wysk Site, Wysk will collect your credit or debit card information and use it solely for the purpose of processing that payment.
We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about You to those employees who need to know that information to provide our products and services to You. Wysk maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your nonpublic personal information.

With your permission, Wysk will also send information provided by you to another business that requests this information, for example, when You are applying for credit. Wysk will not send information provided by you about your business to anyone else without your express prior authorization.
Once You have authorized the release of information to another business, Wysk will link your two businesses.

You may opt out of this service at any time by “de-linking” your business from other businesses on your Customer Dashboard.
