We Provide a Valuable Service
Our first order of business is giving you, our very important readers, the information that you would like to know. The staff of Lists World is composed of a team of very meticulous researchers and writers who are focused on supplying visitors to our website with lists of accurate information regarding a wide range of topics that include such areas of interest as Entertainment, Food & Health, People, Lifestyle, Travel, Tech, and just plain Fun. In order for our team to give you the kind of information you want, we rely on statistical information to guide us throughout our research and development processes.
We Collect Info to Assist us in our Work
- Basic Info On Each Visitor:
The process of selecting which topics to research and what articles you’d like to read is the most vital part of our website’s continued development and success. The webmaster that develops a website must depend on certain general information when evaluating the performance of any page, such as the number of times your IP address visits each page, when and for how long. This basic information is tabulated by the web server.
- Financial Info Concerning Purchases:
At any time that a purchase is made on our website and a financial transaction ensues, all personal information that is gathered during the purchase process is used specifically for processing that transaction and will never be made available to any other party, with the following exceptions: personal information that is required in order to process the transaction, and in the event that disclosure is required by law. Customers who register an account on our website will need to re-enter credit card information each time a purchase is initiated, as we do not keep any of your financial data on record.
- Info from Surveys:
Occasionally our website will post various surveys that we ask our readers to respond to with your opinions and other information that will help us decide how to better our services and continue to improve the quality of our website.
- Info in Email Messages:
Our readers at Lists World may send us questions in emails that contain personal information. Our administration does not share any of this information with third parties and only uses such knowledge in order to provide accurate responses to your email messages.
What We Do With Your Information
All of the basic information that is gathered from our web server logs, survey responses and transaction information are used to compile statistics that allow us to analyze our website’s performance. We collect demographics and other general categorical information including the age and gender of our readers, their educational background, their type of employment, their hobbies and other areas of interest and input all of this general information into reporting tools like Google Analytics. This info is gathered anonymously and used to create reports concerning search trends. Non-identifying information like this may be shared with third parties (like Google Analytics) but any identifying personal information is kept completely confidential.
Certain Exceptions to the Ban on Information Sharing
