Introduction

Your privacy is important to WeGush, Inc. ("WeGush").

WeGush may amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting a revised version at this link. The revised version will be effective at the time WeGush posts it, unless WeGush provides additional notice or an opportunity to “opt-in” because changes are material or retroactive.

Unless stated otherwise in this Privacy Policy, where WeGush discloses your personal information to its agents or sub-contractors for these purposes, the agent or sub-contractor in question will be obligated to use that personal information in accordance with the terms of this privacy statement.

In addition to the disclosures reasonably necessary for the purposes identified elsewhere above, WeGush may disclose your personal information as part of a payment-related or other legal or safety investigation or to the extent that it is required to do so by law, in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings, and in order to establish, exercise or defend its legal rights.

If WeGush is acquired by or merged with another company, we will transfer information about you to that other company. In this event, WeGush will notify you (by email or by putting a notice on the WeGush web site) before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Group Payments

WeGush uses third-party vendors for processing of group payments. Our current vendor is WePay, Inc.
