WESSA gathers and tracks several types of information about users:

  • Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our newsletters and special day bulletins, to participate in our message boards or forums, to e-mail a friend, and from participation in polls and surveys.
  • Information that WESSA gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers’ needs and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Because WESSA derives its revenue mainly from project management, sponsorships and advertising, providing such aggregated demographic data is essential to keeping our service free to users. Under no circumstances will WESSA divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
