We take the security of your personal information very seriously. We store your information on secure servers that we host with reputable 3rd party suppliers who are also required to abide by strict privacy policies. The App communications are protected with industry standard SSL (secure socket layer). When you use our site, we do encrypt your connection using 128-bit encryption. You can confirm this by looking for a closed lock icon in your browser’s URL bar and/or seeing https:// at the beginning of the address of the web page.
We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties. However, we may disclose any and all personal information in our possession as required by law, such as for example if we receive a valid court order or subpoena, or when required to cooperate with law enforcement investigations. For example, if it is necessary under the law to provide a valid e-mail address (or other identifying data) of an App user—in response to an official request made by a law enforcement agency—we might have no choice but to disclose the requested data. Wattpad does try its best through legal methods to protect user privacy and will only use your information for the purposes outlined above.

We also have the right to obtain certain information from our users’ Facebook accounts to verify their identity. We collect personal information such as: username, email address, date of birth (if applicable), phone number, postal/zip code and country, external profile photo URL, IP address, social media account IDs or email addresses (such as for Facebook or Twitter).
