Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Services, to administer your membership, and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate them.
UFOstart may use the information we collect about you for any of the following purposes:
We do not sell or rent your personal information to any third party, but we may disclose information about you to third parties acting on our behalf or who are our subsidiaries or affiliates. These third parties may assist UFOstart with processing payments, marketing, resolving service problems, and correcting errors related to the execution of its application. However, we do not give these third parties (other than our subsidiaries and affiliates) an independent right to share or use your personal information.
Information about our users is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as compatible with the purposes described above, and when we have your permission or as described in this section.
As part of the Services, UFOstart Subscribers may communicate with UFOstart Subscribers and non-registered users through use of their accounts. Where UFOstart Subscribers have selected the option of adding one or more email addresses to an online form, the message they create in the corresponding template will be sent from UFOstart to those email addresses on their behalf. These email addresses will be stored in the address book the UFOstart Subscriber creates and will be used only for the purpose of sending the email communication to the addressee.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to UFOstart. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website.
All Subscribers may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in their registration profile by changing the applicable information in their account settings or, for Services that are hosted on a social networking site, by changing the applicable information in their profile page. If you completely delete all such information, then your account may become deactivated. If you would like us to delete your record in our system, please contact us and we will attempt to accommodate your request if we do not have any legal obligation to retain the record. See below for privacy contact information.
UFOstart is very concerned with safeguarding your information. We employ administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on the Services in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
Your information may be transferred to - and maintained on - computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, UFOstart transfers Personal Information to the United States and processes it there and your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.
The Services are not directed to children under 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our files.
