Transfer of Private Personal Information
Your Private Personal Information may be processed by us in the country in which it was collected and in other countries, including the United States and/or Canada, where laws regarding processing of Private Personal Information may be different than the laws in your country. Our servers are located in various locations, including the United States and/or Canada– amongst other countries (since we operate via the Google Cloud Platform), and as such, your Private Personal Information may be available to other governments or their agencies under lawful orders made anywhere in the world. Please be advised that through your continued use of Wstreams, we may be transferring your Private Personal Information to other parts of the world and you expressly consent to that transfer and consent to be governed by Nigerian law for these purposes.
We will never ever sell, lease, license, or in any other way commercially distribute your personally identifiable information to third parties. We promise this to you on pain of death and commercial ridicule in the industry press. However as you can understand, we want to make sure that this service meets your needs as best as possible, so to that end, we do reserve the right to use your personal information strictly and only in a limited fashion where it helps us improve the product. An example could be if we see that customers using a specific type of handset are having issues with certain pages – this could indicate to us that our product has a bug, and that we should investigate the usability of our product on that handset. Where we interface with 3rd parties to improve our product – for example in relation to matters of product analytics, functionality, and scalability, we will ensure that all data exposed to such 3rd parties will be Summarized Data, an anonymized, general, and non-personally identifiable manner. “Summarized Data” means records which have been stripped of information potentially identifying individuals, and which have been manipulated or combined to provide generalized, anonymous information. Your identity and Private Personal Information will be kept anonymous in Summarized Data.
By providing Private Personal Information to us and by retaining us to provide you with Wstreams, you voluntarily consent to the collection, use and disclosure of Private Personal Information as specified in this Policy. Without limiting the foregoing, we may on occasion ask you to consent when we collect, use, or disclose your Private Personal Information in specific circumstances. Sometimes we may imply your consent through your conduct with us, and rely on that, if the purpose of the collection, use or disclosure is obvious and you voluntarily provide the information.
You may revoke any and/or all consents you have given to us; in order to revoke such consent(s), please contact our privacy officer in writing at the address listed at the end of these terms. At least twenty (20) business days are required to effectuate your revocation of consent from the time we receive it. Please note, however, that revocation of any consent does not have retroactive effect.
The General Data Protection Regulation also gives you right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the European Union (or European Economic Area) state where you work, normally live or where any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred.
Your Security and Private Personal Information
We take administrative, technical and physical measures to safeguard your personal information against unauthorized access, unauthorized disclosure, theft and misuse. This includes limiting access of employees to, and the use of, your personal information through the use of passwords and graduated levels of clearance to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorized manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We do not publish all of our security measures online because this may reduce their effectiveness. We take physical precautions to ensure that the computer servers on which your personal information is stored and archived are secure and that access to such servers is protected. We educate our employees with respect to their obligations to protect your personal information and we require our affiliates and any third-party service providers to take comparable steps to ensure the protection of any of your personal information that is shared with them.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
Although we take precautions against possible breaches of our security systems, no company can fully eliminate the risks of unauthorized access to your personal information and no website is completely secure. We cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss or breaches of our security systems will never occur.
While we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal data, you acknowledge that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal data that are transferred from you or to you via the internet.

Similarly, we cannot assume any responsibility for the content of any Private Personal Information or other information which you receive from other users through Wstreams, and you release us from any and all liability in connection with the contents of any Private Personal Information or other information which you may receive from other users. We cannot guarantee, or assume any responsibility for verifying, the accuracy of the Private Personal Information or other information provided by other users of Wstreams.
