WTF Florida takes privacy very seriously, which is why we’ve taken the time to write this boring document.
Questions About Our Site:
What kind of information do y’all collect?
We collect everything that you provide us, such as your email address, name, and comments. You may choose to remain anonymous, or use a pseudonym.
We may also collect your IP address and other User Information, which is standard practice on most websites. We will never share your IP address with anyone, except to comply with court orders or to cooperate with law enforcement agencies when appropriate.
Whaddaya do with that information?
Not much really. If you contact us through a form and want us to reply, we may use the information you provide, such as your email address or phone number, to contact you (duh). If you simply leave a comment on our site, we probably won’t contact you, but technically we can. If you sign up for our Newsletter, we will email you a newsletter, which you can unsubscribe from at any time. We will never sell your information. We will never send you spam.
Can I “opt out”?
Sure. Just hit the Unsubscribe button on Newsletter emails. Don’t leave any details you don’t want to share with us when posting a comment. It’s that simple.
Can I have a cookie?
Sure, but they don’t taste like anything. Like any self-respecting and modern website, we use “cookies.” They’re basically little chunks of data that are stored on your computer’s hard drive. We use them to make our site work.
Some advertisement keeps following me around from site to site… why and how?
It might seem creepy, but it’s really not. Here’s what’s going on…
We run ads to pay for our expensive web servers. We barely stay afloat, probably because this site is just for fun, and not for profit. We haven’t sold out (…yet, we’re still waiting on that fat check from the evil overlords at Sinclair Broadcasting… OK just kidding).
Please don’t use an ad blocker on our site. Running ads is how we pay our bills and keep this site alive. If you really want to use an ad blocker, please buy a donation item from our website.
How do I know your website’s safe?
The little lock icon in the address bar should tell you something. It means we have a valid SSL certificate. We make a lot of jokes here, but our systems are solid. Hackers are blocked. Spam is deleted. Updates are made often. We take our website’s security very seriously.
What do you do with the survey information?
The data collected at surveys.wtfflorida.com will be kept anonymous. We will never sell your information. We will only collect the data you provide to us.
Sometimes the data will be calculated to yield certain results elucidating the Floridaness of something, for example a “How Florida are you?” quiz.
Sometimes we will ask questions about the site, how you like it, and changes you’d like to see. We collect that data to better serve you by understanding what y’all want.
Again, we will never spam you. We will never sell your data.
Surveys are mostly created to have fun, and to learn about our state.
Can I ask another question?
Sure, of course. Visit our Contact Page and ask away.
This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
