Privacy Policy for WebCam in a Box

I. Overview

WebCaminaBox.com (“WCB”) respects and safeguards the privacy of every individual who visits our website. This Privacy Statement is a formal document that outlines information which may be collected by WCB and how that information may be used. This Statement also informs how to proceed if you do not want your personal information collected.


II. Personally-Identifiable Information

The WCB Network will not collect any personally-identifiable information about you (including, but not limited to, your name, address, telephone number, email address, Social Security number, Bank account or credit card information, or any combination of data that could be used to identify you, such as birth date, zip code, and gender) unless you provide it to us voluntarily.
If you do not want your personally-identifiable information collected, please do not submit it to us. If you have already submitted this information and would like for us to remove it from our records, please contact us through our Customer Care department. We will use reasonable efforts to delete your information from our existing files in a timely manner.
When you provide us with personally-identifiable information, such information will be gathered solely by the WCB Network and is for use solely by the WCB Network. At any point where personally-identifiable information is requested, the information is optional to provide rather than mandatory. We may use personally-identifiable information in the following ways, unless stated otherwise: we may store and process that information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services; and we may use that information to contact you. Financial information that is collected is used to check the users' qualifications for registration and to bill the user for products and services. WCB may utilize electronic newsletters to reach all or a subset of all registered users, using the e-mail address collected. Users may remove themselves from such mailing lists at any time by following the instructions that will be included as part of any of such mailings. WCB may request personally-identifiable information on specific pages that allow users to contact WCB. In all cases, such information is being collected to assist us in solving a specific issue addressed by the user and/or to allow us to contact the user with an appropriate response. Under no circumstances, unless required to do so by subpoena or court order by an authorized law enforcement agent or appointed Officer of the Court, will WCB release any personally-identifiable information, in whole or in part, to any third party, without first obtaining the express consent of the individual user.


III. Non-Personally-Identifiable Information Collected Automatically

In some cases, information may be collected about you that is not personally-identifiable. WCB may collect this information directly, or indirectly, through certain third parties such as DoubleClick.net. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet Browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using and the domain name of the website from which you linked to our site. To learn how to prevent WCB and other parties from using cookies during your visit to WCB, see "How to prevent WCB or other parties from writing cookies to your hard drive" and "How to erase cookies from your hard drive" below.


A. How to erase cookies from your hard drive

Microsoft Internet Explorer
Windows users: Make sure that Internet Explorer is not running. Using the "My Computer" or "Windows Explorer", browse to the Windows folder. If you are using Windows 3.1 or Windows 95/98 without user profiles enabled, double-click the "Cookies" folder. If you are using Windows 95 with user profiles enabled or Windows NT, double-click the "Profiles" folder, double-click the folder with the same name as the name you use to log on to Windows, then double-click the Cookies folder. Locate the username@site.txt file (username is the name you use to log on to Windows and site is the name of the site whose cookie you wish to delete). Click the cookie file, then click Delete on the File menu. If you wish to delete ALL cookies, just delete all the file that follow that are named username@site.txt.

Mac users: The instructions for deleting cookies depend on which version of MSIE you are using. For MSIE 2.x, simply delete the System Folder:Preferences:Explorer:Cookies.txt file. For MSIE 3.0, Delte the System Folder:Preferences:Internet Preferences file (however, this may affect other Internet-based applications, so do not delete this file unless you have written down all of the settings your others applications may need). For MSIE 3.01a, on the Edit menu, click Preferences, then, under "Receiving Files" click Cookies, then the cookies you wish to delete, click delete, and click OK. For MSIE 4.x, on the Edit menu, click Preferences, then cookies, click the cookies you wish to delete, click delete, then OK.
Unix users: Go to your home directory, then change to the .microsoft directory within. Change to the Cookies directory inside. Delete all .txt files within this directory (username@site.txt).


Netscape Navigator/Communciator
Windows users: Make sure that Netscape is not running. Using the "My Computer" or "Windows Explorer", browse to "Program Files", then "Netscape", then "Users", then your current user profile folder (often "default"). Within this folder, locate the file called "cookies" or "cookies.txt". Right-click on this file and select "Delete".

Mac users: Make sure that Netscape is not running. Go to your Mac System Folder, open Preferences, and open "Netscape Users". Locate the "Magic Cookie" file, drag it to the Trash, then empty the trash. Once you restart Navigator or Communicator, your cookies will be gone.

Unix users: Make sure that Netscape is not running. Simply delete the "cookies" file in your ".netscape" directory.

VI. Public Forums

This site makes chat rooms, forums, message boards and/or news groups available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information, and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.

VII. Minors

Because WCB is an e-commerce-driven web-conferencing platform, the company's services are directed to adults who possess validated credit-card information and are never marketed to individuals under the age of 18. WCB's registered "video chat hosts" host chat rooms under a potentially infinite number of different categories, ranging from how/to instruction to adult-oriented topics.
Certain portions of WCB which may contain content considered offensive to some, are inaccessible to individuals under the age of 18 via a standard "credit-card" wall, as advocated by the Communications Decency Act. For those portions which may be accessible to individuals under the age of 18, such as the WCB home page and other areas presenting non-offensive content, WCB has no intention of collecting any personally-identifiable information (that is, name, address, telephone number, or email address) from individuals under eighteen years of age. Where appropriate, the WCB Network will specifically instruct minors not to submit such information on our websites or advertisements. If a minor has provided us with personally-identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that minor should contact our Customer Care department if they would like this information deleted from our records. We will use reasonable efforts to delete the minor's information from our existing files in a timely manner.

VIII. Whom to Contact

If you have submitted personally-identifiable information through the WCB Network website and would like that information deleted from our records, please contact our customer care department on this website and provide us with your name, your WCB Network screen name and any other pertinent information. We will use reasonable efforts to delete this information from our existing files in a
