Privacy Policy

Wombat Apps LLC (“Wombat Apps”) operates My Writing App and its associated web site. It is Wombat Apps’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website and app.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Wombat Apps collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Wombat Apps’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Wombat Apps’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Wombat Apps may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Wombat Apps also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on My Writing App forums. Wombat Apps only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses may be visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Wombat Apps’s websites choose to interact with Wombat Apps in ways that require Wombat Apps to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Wombat Apps gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide their name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Wombat Apps, such as purchasing a subscription to My Writing App, are asked for email address and ZIP code information. In each case, Wombat Apps collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Wombat Apps. Wombat Apps does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Wombat Apps may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Wombat Apps may monitor the most popular foods on the My Writing App site or use a spam screener service to help identify spam in the forums. Wombat Apps may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Wombat Apps does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Wombat Apps discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Wombat Apps’s behalf or to provide services available at Wombat Apps’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Wombat Apps’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Wombat Apps will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Wombat Apps discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Wombat Apps believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Wombat Apps, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Wombat Apps website and have supplied your email address, Wombat Apps may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Wombat Apps and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Wombat Apps takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
