Your IP address

Our servers collect and aggregate user information site-wide, including anonymous site statistics, such as the number of views of each page. We log domain names and/or IP addresses of visitors (e.g.,,,, etc.), which permits us to know "where" visitors are from, or what access service they use, without knowing their individual identities. Because we do not require users to register with us, this "host level" tracking is our primary basis for assessing traffic patterns.

Alert Service

We collect personally identifiable information in only one area of our site: after visitors perform a search of the site, we offer them the option of saving their search and receiving an email whenever new documents matching their search are published. In order to receive this service, visitors must provide us with their email address. This is an opt-in service. The email addresses collected are kept confidential, and will never be given or sold to a third party, or used for any purpose other than to provide visitors with the specific information they request. Visitors can unsubscribe at any time, at which point their email address will be permanently and completely deleted from our alert database.

Data Collected

The demographic and profile data collected at WCGMF is used to help us understand what content and services will be of most value to you. This information, in aggregate form, may be shared with existing and potential advertisers and partners as part of building relationships. No individual information will be shared with advertisers or third parties without your consent. However, we reserve the right to disclose any individual information, with or without your consent, when required by law or in response to a validly issued subpoena or other judicial order.

Links to Other Websites

This Website contains links to other sites. WCGMF is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

Interactive Features

WCGMF may, from time to time, offer listservs, online forums or other message boards. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. Contributions in public discussions may also be republished on WCGMF websites and in any WCGMF publications without compensation to or express permission from the original contributor.


This Website has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of information, but you should recognize that any such security measures are inherently limited. WCGMF will not be liable for any breach of the security measures on the Website or any loss, misuse or alteration of information resulting therefrom.

By using this Website you understand and agree to the terms outlined here and in our Terms of Service.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

If, however, we are going to use users’ personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via email and by posting a notice on our Web site for 30 days.
