What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Certain visitors to Wahm Addicts websites choose to interact with Wahm Addicts in ways that require Wahm Addicts to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Wahm Addicts gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at wahmaddicts.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Wahm Addicts are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Wahm Addicts collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Wahm Addicts. Wahm Addicts does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
