How We Collect and Use Information
We collect the following types of information about you:
Information you provide us directly:
We ask for certain information such as your username, real name, birthdate, address, phone
number and e-mail address when you register for a wikiHow account, or if you correspond
with us. We may also retain any messages you send through the Service, and may collect
information you provide in User Content you post to the Service. We use this information
to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service. Your
username and if you choose to disclose it, your real name, will be published publicly. Once
published your username and / or real name may not be able to be removed.
Information we may receive from third parties:
We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, if you access our
websites or Service through a third-party connection or log-in, for example, through Facebook
Connect, by “following,” “liking,” adding the wikiHow application, linking your account to the
wikiHow Service, etc., that third party may pass certain information about your use of its service
to wikiHow. This information could include, but is not limited to, the user ID associated with your
account (for example, your Facebook UID), an access token necessary to access that service,
any information that you have permitted the third party to share with us, and any information
you have made public in connection with that service. If you allow us access to your friends list,
your friends’ user IDs, and your connection to those friends, may be used and stored to make
your experience more social, and to allow you to invite your friends to use our Service as well as
provide you with updates if and when your friends join wikiHow. You should always review, and
if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or
connecting them to the wikiHow Service. You may also unlink your third party account from the
Service by adjusting your settings on the third party service.
Inviting a friend to use Radio Anywhere:
Radio Anywhere may, in its sole discretion, develop a feature that allows you to invite third parties to
the Service. If you choose to use our invitation service to invite a third party to the Service
through our “Invite friends” feature, you may directly choose a friend to invite through your
mobile device’s native contact list – but we do not require that you import your contacts list to
the Service, and we do not retain the information contained in your contacts list. You understand
that by inviting a friend to wikiHow through the “Invite friends” feature, you are directly sending
a text or email from your personal accounts and that we are not storing your contact list. In
addition, you understand and agree that normal carrier charges apply to communications sent
from you phone. Since this invitation is coming directly from your email or phone, we do not
have access to or control this communication.
Finding your friends on the Service:
Radio Anywhere may, in its sole discretion, develop a feature that allows you to locate your friends
with Radio Anywhere accounts through a “Find friends” feature. The “Find friends” feature allows you
to choose to locate friends either through (i) your contact list, (ii) social media sites (such as
Twitter or Facebook) or (iii) through a search of names and usernames on Radio Anywhere . If you
choose to find your friends through your contact list, then you agree to provide wikiHow access
to your contact list such that we can perform the search necessary to determine whether or not
someone associated with the information you provide is using wikiHow. If you choose to find
your friends through social media sites, then you understand that the information these sites
provide to use to conduct this type of search is governed by their privacy policies and your
account settings on those sites. If you choose to find your friends through a search of names
or usernames, then simply type a name to search and see if that name or username appears
on our Service. Note that we do not retain any information contained in your contacts list, or
information from social media sites about your contacts, and we do not use such information for
any purpose other than to help you find your friends on Radio Anywhere .
We may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools and services, to help us
measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your
browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and other information that assists us in
improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information in aggregate form such that
it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual user.

about how you use the Service (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click and other actions
you take on the Service), and allow us or our business partners to track your usage of the
Service over time. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser.

Log file information is automatically reported by your browser or mobile device each time you
access the Service. When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file
information. These server logs may include anonymous information such as your web request,
Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks
and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed,

Clear gifs/web beacons information:
When you use the Service, we may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons) which are

improvement of the Service.

files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely
identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device
hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or
data sent to the device by wikiHow. A device identifier may convey information to us about how
you browse and use the Service. A device identifier may remain persistently on your device,
to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Service. Some features of
the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or
When you access the Service by or through a mobile device, we may access, collect, monitor
and/or remotely store “location data,” which may include GPS coordinates (e.g. latitude and/
or longitude) or similar information regarding the location of your mobile device. Location data
may convey to us information about how you browse and use the Service. Some features of the
Service, particularly location-based services, may not function properly if use or availability of
location data is impaired or disabled.
Commercial and marketing communications:
We use the information we collect or receive, such as your email address, to communicate
directly with you. We may send you emails containing newsletters, promotions, and special
offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you will be given the option to opt out
or change your preferences. We also use your information to send you Service-related emails
(e.g., account verification, purchase and billing confirmations and reminders, changes/updates
to features of the Service, technical and security notices). You may not opt out of Servicerelated emails. You may also be able to be “found” on Radio Anywhere based on information that you
provide (see “Find friends on Radio Anywhere ”) above.

to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next
time you visit the site; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) to provide
and monitor the effectiveness of our Service; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total
number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns; (e) diagnose or fix technology problems;
