WTS respects your privacy. WTS, its affiliates and third-party service providers will collect personally identifiable information, such as your name, e-mail address, address or telephone number, only when you voluntarily submit it to us either through our website or through any other means, such as in connection with the following:
- Sales and/or demonstration inquiry form

- Job opportunity inquiry form or submission of job application
- Newsletter and email alerts request form
- Social Media
- Online campaigns
- Webinar registration form
- Contact Us form
- Other voluntary submission forms posted on our website from time to time
- Telephone, email or other form of communication
The personally identifiable information you provide will be used for the purposes for which you supplied it to us, and for such other purposes that we describe in this Privacy Statement. We also may use the personally identifiable information we obtain about you in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection. WTS, its affiliates or its third-party service providers may refer to the submitted information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services. We may also use that information to contact you from time to time. You will have the option to opt-out at any time from any marketing communications, or to request we correct or remove personally identifiable information you provide to us from our database, by emailing us with your request at email@example.com. We will honor your request to opt out within a reasonable time after receiving the request. We will modify or remove information in response to your request when required by law and in certain other circumstances. Before WTS is able to correct any inaccuracies or delete any information, however, we may ask you to verify your identity and to provide other details to help us to respond to your request.
WTS is a global organization and provides a global service. Sharing data cross-border is essential to ensure you receive the same high-quality service wherever you are in the world. As a result, we may, subject to law, transfer personally identifiable information or other data collected in connection with our services, to entities in countries where data protection standards may differ from those in the country where you reside. By continuing to visit our website and use our services, you understand that we transfer your personally identifiable information globally.
Public content includes any information you submit to WTS on message boards, social media, blogs, or other community features that are accessible by general visitors and other users. This information is public content because people do not need a password to access or view this content on our site. Prior to allowing you to post on our community feature, you may be required to submit your name and contact information, which will be treated as personally identifiable information as stated above, unless you choose to include such information directly in your public posting.
We collect certain information automatically when you visit this website. This information tells us such things as how many users visited our website and the pages accessed. We also may use third-party website analytics tools that collect information about visitor traffic on our websites. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our website to our visitors. We may collect this information either through “cookie” technology, “web beacons” or links, as explained below. In addition, we may use certain technologies to determine whether you’ve opened an e-mail or clicked on a link contained in an e-mail.
- Cookies – Like many companies, we use browser cookies on this website. Browser cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain websites. We use browser cookies to tell us, for example, whether you’ve visited us before or if you’re a new visitor and to help us identify website features in which you may have the greatest interest. Browser cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular website. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new browser cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new browser cookie, and how to disable existing browser cookies. Without browser cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all our website features.
- Google Analytics – we utilize Google Analytics to better understand interaction with out websites and ultimately refine that web experience to better serve you.
- Trackalyzer – we utilize software and services to monitor site traffic and use. The process includes the collection of IP addresses and search-related data in order to analyze visits to the site. This type of cookie may be referred to as a web beacon which is explained below.
- Web Beacons – Certain pages on our website contain “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, the information in cookies set by the third party. We use log files to store the data that is collected through web beacons. WTS also uses third party web beacons to help track how our website is being used and which links are being clicked. These web beacons are provided by Microsoft and other third-party tracking tools. With both cookies and web beacon technology, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address. We may however contact an organization regarding WTS solutions and services.
