Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Way Better Patents™ we have a few fundamental principles:

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Way Better Patents™ 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. Way Better Patent’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Way Better Patents’ visitors use its websites. From time to time, Wayfinder Digital may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Way Better Patents™ also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WayBetterPatents.com blogs. Way Better Patents 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Way Better Patents websites choose to interact with Way Better Patents™ in ways that require Way Better Patents™ to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Way Better Patents gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our Weekly Patent Scorecards waybetterpatents.com to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Way Better Patents™ — are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Way Better Patents™ collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Way Better Patents™. Way Better Patents 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

Way Better Patents™ may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Way Better Patents may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Way Better Patents does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Way Better Patents™ 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 Way Better Patents' behalf or to provide services available at Way Better Patents' 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 Way Better Patents' websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Way Better Patents 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, Way Better Patents™ discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Way Better Patents believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Way Better Patents™, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Way Better Patents™ website and have supplied your email address, Way Better Patents™ 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 Wayfinder Digital 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. Wayfinder Digital takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

If Way Better Patents™, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Way Better Patents goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Way Better Patents™ may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
