4. DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
Certain personal information that you upload to the Sites may be publicly available to other users on the Sites (such as promotion winners’ lists).

From time to time we may enter into an arrangement with another company that is not owned by or affiliated with us to provide additional features on the Sites. These arrangements may include business partners, sponsors, and co-branded online services (referred to here as “co-branded services”). Any information, including personal information, that you provide on one of these co-branded services may be shared with these partners. By participating in activities or providing your information on these co-branded services, you consent to our providing your information to those partners. Separate privacy policies may apply to these partners’ uses of your personal information.
We may use vendors to help us operate our business and the Sites, or administer activities on our behalf, such as sending emails, promotion or loyalty program administration, Sites maintenance, customer service, payment processing, web analytics, maintenance, online advertising, certain social media plug-in integrations, and security execution and clearing services. When we disclose personal information to vendors, we strive to enter into a contract requiring the recipient to keep that personal information confidential and only use it as necessary to perform business purposes or as otherwise permitted by applicable law. Our service providers may engage subcontractors to enable the service providers to perform services for us.
We may share your personal information in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business assets (e.g., further to a merger, reorganization, liquidation, bankruptcy, or any other business transaction), including negotiations of such transactions.

There are some Sites that may be intended for certain audiences that may include certain age ranges, in which case we may provide additional or separate privacy notices to address those specific audiences.

Applicable law may require or permit us to decline your request. For example, without limitation, where we do not maintain the personal information in a searchable or reasonably accessible format and where we maintain the personal information solely for legal or compliance purposes. If we decline your request, we will tell you why, subject to legal restrictions.
You are not required to create a password-protected account with us to make a request, but if you have a password-protected account with us, you may be able to use your account to do so, if the Sites allows you to.
Please note we are not obligated to comply with requests to the extent that doing so would infringe on our, or any other person’s or party’s, rights, or conflict with applicable law.
As permissible by law, we do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or unfounded, in which case we may limit the response and/or condition it on payment of our costs. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Our responses to privacy requests may be subject to legal requirements, such as responding to you within a certain timeframe, in which case we will provide you information about the process of your request.

D. Deletion. Subject to applicable law, you may request that we delete or remove from public view your personal information.

WKKC has appropriate safeguards in place in accordance with applicable legal requirements to ensure that data is adequately protected irrespective of the country.
