You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by un-subscribing from this service.

Opting-out of mobile inApp adverts

Woots can be pushed to mobile devices via advertising networks. To opt out of mobile inApp advertising, follow the steps below.

Opt-out of targeted advertising from iOS device
You may choose to enable Limit Ad Tracking on iOS by opening Settings, then tapping on Privacy, then Advertising, and sliding the Limit Ad Tracking switch to on. To enable Limit Ad Tracking in iTunes, open Preferences in iTunes, then click the Store pane, and check Limit Ad Tracking. To enable Limit Ad Tracking on Apple TV, open Settings, select General then Privacy, and set Limit Ad Tracking to on. If you chose to enable Limit Ad Tracking, iAd will opt your Apple ID out of receiving ads targeted to your interests regardless of what device you are using. Apps or advertisers that do not use iAd are required to check the Limit Ad Tracking setting and are not permitted by Apple's guidelines to serve you targeted ads if you have Limit Ad Tracking enabled. Whenever you want to clear the data associated with your Advertising Identifier, you can simply reset it. To reset your Advertising Identifier on iOS, open Settings, tap Privacy, tap Advertising, and tap Reset Advertising Identifier. To reset your Advertising Identifier on Apple TV, open Settings, then select General, select Privacy, and click Reset Advertising Identifier. Your Advertising Identifier is automatically reset when you enable or disable Limit Ad Tracking. If you enable Limit Ad Tracking, you may still receive the same number of ads, but the ads may be less relevant to you.

Opt-out of targeted advertising from Android device
Ads Settings lets you opt out of ads shown to you based on factors such as your interests, previous visits to other websites, and demographic details on your computer's browser. To opt out of all of Google's interest-based ads on your browser, you'll need to opt out in 3 places: once when you're signed in to Google products, once when you're signed out, and once for ads on the Display Network (websites beyond google.com). The reason for the different opt-outs is that Google uses different information to target ads, depending on how you're interacting with Google and whether you're signed in with your Google account.

  • Go to Ads Settings at www.google.com/settings/ads/anonymous.
  • Next to Ads based on your interests, click the switch if it's in the ON position.
  • In the dialog that opens, click the SWITCH OFF link to confirm your selection.

Security

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Updates

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time and all updates will be posted on this page. If you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy, you should contact us immediately via the feedback form accessible within the Wootled app.
