Website Visitors

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

Wölff also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Wölff does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain users choose to interact with Wölff in ways that require Wölff to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Wölff gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users to provide a username and email address. In each case, Wölff collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Wölff. Wölff 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

Wölff may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Wölff may reveal how many downloads a particular version got, or say which plugins are most popular based on checks from api.Wölff, a web service used by Wölff installations to check for new versions of Wölff and plugins. However, Wölff does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Wölff 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 Wölff’s behalf or to provide services available at Wölff’s 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 Wölff’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Wölff 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, Wölff discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Wölff believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Wölff, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Wölff website and have supplied your email address, Wölff 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 Wölff and our products. 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. Wölff takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
