When you download the Software for the first time, WOT automatically creates a random (anonymous) identifier for you. While using the Software it sends information about the identifier, the date and time of the request and the host name for each site you visit to WOT servers for the purpose of identifying the visited web sites and retrieving the corresponding rating information. This information will be stored only temporarily and will be erased after a month.
You can also give your opinion ("Rating(s)") on the web site you visit. These Ratings are stored on the servers for future use, for as long as is considered appropriate by WOT.
Some parts of the Service, such as the Website, may require registration and you will be asked for some personal information (name, username, email address and password). This information is collected only to help you to retain your previous Ratings and settings (for example; if you wish to install WOT on a different computer). Your password is processed so that it cannot be recovered.
When you register with the Service, you are asked to provide information that describes you (country, city, year of birth etc.). This information together with your Ratings and web site usage is used for statistical purposes only without any connection to your personal information. The statistical data may be stored and used as found appropriate by WOT.
If you choose to register with the Service and participate at the Website or leave feedback about a web site, we will display your username along side your comments and feedback.
