Westlan Privacy Statement

Last Modified:  May 1, 2018

Your privacy is critically important to us. This Privacy Statement explains how WestLAN Data Networks (“WestLAN Data Networks,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) collects, uses, and discloses your information.  The Privacy Statement applies to all services and products, except those products that have a separate Privacy Statement.

Where applicable, you consent to the use of your information as described in this Privacy Statement each time you use our products or services, so we urge you to read this document in full, and Contact Us if you have any questions.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information is information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify you.  Personal information also includes anonymous information that is linked to information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify you.  Personal information does not include information that has been irreversibly anonymized or aggregated so that it can no longer enable us, whether in combination with other information or otherwise, to identify you.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

Non-Personally-Identifying Information & Cookies

WestLAN Data Networks collects, or may have a third-party service collect, non-personally-identifying information of the sort that Websites typically make available, such as the type of device using the website, the operating system, location information, and aggregated user statistics. For instance, WestLAN Data Networks may monitor the most popular features of the Website. WestLAN Data Networks’ purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how users utilize the Website. From time to time, WestLAN Data Networks may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing or disclosing to third parties a report on trends in the usage of the Website.

We may engage third party tracking and advertising providers such as those named below to act on our behalf to track and analyse your usage of our website through the use of cookies. These third parties collect, and share with us, usage information about visits to our website and, sometimes by correlating this information with other information (e.g. your IP address), measure and research the effectiveness of our advertisements, track page usage, help us target our recommendations and advertising, and track use of our recommendations and advertisements.

Personally-Identifying Information

Certain users of the Website choose to interact with WestLAN Data Networks in ways that require WestLAN Data Networks to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that WestLAN Data Networks gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users who contact us though the Contact Us page or to file a return via the Returns Form to provide a name, company name, address, phone number and an email address. Those who engage in transactions with WestLAN Data Networks are asked to provide additional personally-identifying information, including, as necessary, their first and last name, physical address, telephone number, and additional data such as financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, WestLAN Data Networks collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the user interaction with WestLAN Data Networks. WestLAN Data Networks does not share personally-identifying information other than as described below. Users can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Website-related activities.

Sharing of Personally-Identifying Information

WestLAN Data Networks shares personally-identifying information only with those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on WestLAN Data Networks’ behalf or to provide services available through the Website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. For instance, WestLAN Data Networks uses third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, data storage, and related technology required to run the services available through the Website. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Website you consent to the transfer of such information to them and their potential sub-contractors. WestLAN Data Networks will not rent or sell personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, WestLAN Data Networks discloses personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when WestLAN Data Networks believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of WestLAN Data Networks, third parties or the public at large.

Use of Email Addresses and Push Notifications

If you are a user of the Website and have supplied your email address, WestLAN Data Networks may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what is going on with WestLAN Data Networks 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.

Protection of Information

WestLAN Data Networks takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, loss, or destruction of personally-identifying information.

Do-Not-Track Disclosures

Neither WestLAN Data Networks nor any third party engages in the collection of personally-identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services when you are accessing or using the Website. For this reason, the Website does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals or other mechanisms providing you the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of such information.

Age Limitation

The Website is not directed and should not be available to children under 16 years of age. We do not knowingly collect any kind of personal information from children under 16 years of age. If you are under the age of 16, do not use the Website or otherwise provide us with personal information. If we become aware that such information has been collected, we will immediately delete such information. If any parent or guardian learns or otherwise becomes aware of a child under 13 years of age using the Website or otherwise providing personal information to us, please contact us.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, WestLAN Data Networks may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in WestLAN Data Networks’ sole discretion. Changes to the Privacy Policy will be effective as of the date we post the revised version on this page or make it otherwise accessible through the Website as a notification and will apply only to our collection, use and sharing of information after such date. WestLAN Data Networks encourages users to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a WestLAN Data Networks account, you should also check your social network dashboard for alerts to these changes. After the effective date of any change in this Privacy Policy, your continued use of the Website, other than to review the revised version of this Privacy Policy, will constitute your acceptance of such change.

Your Consent

By using the Website, you declare your consent to our collection, use, and sharing of any information pertaining to you as described in this Privacy Policy.


Effective Date

The effective date of this Privacy Policy is displayed at the top of the page.


We may periodically change this Privacy Statement to keep pace with new technologies, industry practices, and regulatory requirements, among other reasons.  We expect most such changes to be minor.  Any non-material changes will take effect immediately upon posting of an updated Privacy Statement.  There may, however, be cases where changes to the Privacy Statement may be more significant.  In such cases, we will provide you either a prominent notice of such changes before they take effect or by directly sending you a notification.

Your continued use of our products and services after the effective date of the Privacy Statement means that you accept the revised Privacy Statement.  If you do not agree to the revised Privacy Statement, please refrain from using our products or services and Contact Us to close any account you may have created.
