At WorkingCapital, we prioritize your privacy.
A word of caution: be mindful of what you post online. For instance, if you willingly share personal data in chat rooms or message boards (such as comments sections), that information could become public and may lead to unsolicited messages from others. We are not liable for the personal data you opt to share in these public areas. To request the removal of your personal data from our blog or community forum, please get in touch with us as mentioned below. Sometimes, due to legal retention requirements or technical constraints (like non-searchable data), we might not be able to delete personal data that you’ve voluntarily shared in these forums, in which case, we will inform you.
Collection of Information
Your personal data is collected when you engage with the Site. This might be data you provide or data gathered automatically. You can manage and adjust your preferences as outlined further.
Types of Information Collected
As you navigate the Site, various types of your personal data might be collected, used, and shared in different ways. As specified below, the nature of this data can vary depending on its source, but may include data that you voluntarily submit (like your contact details, social media handles, or professional information when setting up an account or registering on the Site), data automatically collected about your site usage (like your content preferences), and data shared with us by our third-party partners with your prior consent.
Consensual Information Provision
At WorkingCapital, we may collect personal data, including identifiable information, that you willingly provide or consent to share. For instance, when registering as a member of the Site, we might request your email address. You might also supply personal data in various other contexts, like on your member profile page, public profile URL, or when participating in sweepstakes, contests, or promotions. In cases where you make a purchase on the Site or one of our co-branded sites, additional details such as your physical address, phone number, and credit card information may be requested to complete the transaction. Remember, providing this information is optional, and choosing not to may limit your access to certain aspects and services of the Site. If you intend to provide information about a third party, like in a referral or recommendation, ensure you have their consent. When registering or providing information to WorkingCapital in any form, you agree to submit only truthful, accurate, current, and complete data.
Automated Information Collection
Our Site automatically collects specific user data from your device. In some regions, including California and the European Economic Area, this data might be regarded as personal under data protection laws.

Utilization of Web Beacons
Web beacons, also known as pixel tags or clear GIFs, may be employed on our Site for various business purposes, such as recognizing users, analyzing traffic patterns, identifying preferred content, and gauging site engagement. We also include web beacons in our email messages, like newsletters, to measure the level of engagement (for instance, tracking how many emails are opened or which links are clicked).
Log File Analysis
Our web and ad servers log details like a user’s IP address, browser type, and the requested URL. Such information, typically provided by your browser and logged by most websites, is stored securely and used internally to analyze traffic patterns on our Site.
Information from Third-Party Sources
Occasionally, we might collect personal information about you from external sources, such as data append services, public or social graph data, or social media websites, especially if you connect your social media with our Site. We use this data for business purposes, like enhancing content or promotions, but only when these third parties have your consent or are legally obligated or permitted to share your personal information with us.
Purpose of Using Your Information
The primary aim of collecting, using, and sharing your information is to enrich your Site experience, support the Site, and improve its features and performance. We use your information based on valid legal grounds and for purposes like:
Information Sharing Practices
Your voluntary provision of information during Site usage may lead to sharing with WorkingCapital affiliates, business partners, vendors, and service providers who support our business activities. These third parties, engaged for various services like hosting or email, are prohibited from using your information for other purposes. For credit card processing, we don’t collect, store, or process any details, and the third parties involved are similarly restricted in their use of your information.
When you participate in advertiser promotions, your information is directly provided to the advertiser. Similarly, attendee information for live events might be shared with event sponsors, subject to legal requirements. California residents can opt out of such activities as specified on our Site.
We may occasionally conduct contests or surveys on our Site, requesting information like your name and email. Participation is voluntary, and this information is used to notify winners and award prizes. Third-party service providers conducting these surveys or contests are forbidden from using your information for any other purposes.
Our Site allows login via social media, which can bridge your social media login information with our Site. These services may collect certain information like your name and email address and allow you to share your activities on your social network. Social media features and widgets, hosted by third parties or directly on our Site, are governed by the privacy policies of the companies providing them.
Sharing Aggregate Information with Advertisers
WorkingCapital generates most of its revenue from advertising and affiliate networks on the Site, making information sharing key to offering affordable services to users. To attract and retain advertisers, we utilize aggregated information from our collection and third-party market researchers to describe our services to partners and help advertisers and sponsors better understand our audience.
Should you prefer not to have your information used for targeted advertising, you can opt out or modify your choices as described in the relevant section. Note that opting out will not prevent you from seeing ads; they will simply be less targeted.
Service Provision Necessities
Occasionally, we employ other companies for limited services like processing and delivery of newsletter mailings, transaction processing, or statistical analysis of our services. These companies receive only the necessary user information to perform their tasks and may sometimes collect it directly from you, in which case you will be informed. These companies are bound by confidentiality agreements and are prohibited from using the information for other purposes.
In Case of Sale or Bankruptcy
If WorkingCapital undergoes a sale, merger, public offering, bankruptcy, acquisition, or other control changes, your user information might be shared with the new owner or controlling party, under the condition that it is used only as outlined in this Privacy Statement.
WorkingCapital may disclose your user information if required by law enforcement, regulatory agencies, courts, or when necessary to protect safety, investigate fraud, comply with legal proceedings, or defend our rights.
We may also share your user information with others if we have your explicit consent.
EEA Visitors Notice
For visitors in the European Economic Area (EEA), we process your user information only with a lawful basis, such as consent, contract necessity, or legal obligations. Our processing depends on the specific context, and we may also use your information based on legitimate interests, which are balanced against your privacy rights.
Controlling Your Information
You have rights regarding the control and use of your user information.
Upon request, we’ll inform you whether we hold any of your information. You can opt out of marketing communications or modify your personal account and submitted information. EEA residents have additional rights, including access, correction, deletion, or portability of their information, and can withdraw consent for processing based on consent.
For California residents, specific rights under the CCPA allow you to request information about the sharing of your data for marketing purposes, disclosure of personal information we collect, use, and sell, and the right to request deletion of your information.
Nevada consumers can submit requests under Nevada Senate Bill 220 as outlined below.
To make any requests, contact us via the provided email, and we may require additional information to confirm your identity. We aim to respond within 30 days or within the legal timeframe.
Cookie preferences can be modified as explained in the Cookies section above. For any queries, please reach out to us using the contact details below.
Data Retention Practices
We hold onto your user information as long as your account remains active or as needed for providing Site services, except in cases where you revoke consent or request deletion of specific information. We may also keep certain information for valid business needs (like for essential Site functions, legal, tax, or accounting purposes).
When there’s no longer a legitimate business need for your user information, we’ll either delete or anonymize it. If deletion isn’t feasible immediately (for instance, if the data is in backup archives), we’ll securely store and isolate it from further processing until deletion is possible.
The security of your user information is a priority. We employ suitable technical and organizational measures to protect it, tailored to the risks involved in processing your information. However, please remember that no internet data transmission is ever completely secure. Your data, stored on servers in the United States, is handled with care and protection. If you suspect any breach of your privacy, please reach out to us using the contact details provided.
Privacy for Minors
Our Site is designed for individuals 16 years of age and older. If you are under 16, please refrain from providing any personal information. We do not intentionally collect data from children under 16. Should we discover such collection, we will delete the data from our records and terminate any corresponding accounts. We advise minors to discuss their online activities with a parent or guardian.
International Data Transfers
Your information may be transferred and processed in countries other than your own, especially if you access the Site from outside the United States. While these countries may have differing data protection laws, we ensure that your information remains protected in line with this Privacy Statement. WorkingCapital adheres to the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks, ensuring the protection of data transferred from the EU, the UK, and Switzerland to the U.S. For unresolved privacy or data use concerns, our U.S.-based third party dispute resolution provider can be contacted.
