This Policy tells you, among other things, what information we gather from you through our Site, how we may use or disclose that information, and our efforts to protect it.
Notice of Information Collected and Disclosed
In connection with your use of our Site, we may collect the following information:
- The domain name, but not the e-mail address of visitors to our Site.
- The e-mail addresses of users who communicate with us via the Site or via e-mail.
- Aggregate information on what pages on our Site users access or visit.
- Information volunteered by the user, such as information provided if they register with the Site which may include name, address, email, phone, username, password, e-mail address, language of use, time zone, update requests, and general requests for information and other personal information as indicated on forms throughout our Site.
Providing the voluntary data described above is at your sole discretion. If you submit personally identifiable information to us through the Site, then we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Site. We use both your personally identifiable information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Site and to create new features, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends.
Universal Pest Solutions is the owner of the information collected on this Site. Except as provided in this Policy, we do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about you to anyone except as permitted by law; however, we may choose to disclose all of the information we collect, as described above, to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other similar companies with whom we have joint marketing agreements. Your information may be disclosed to companies that provide support services to us in relation to those services, such as data processors, technical systems consultants and programmers. Additionally, this information may be shared with some Universal Pest Solutions partners. Universal Pest Solutions may share aggregate information about our users with advertisers, sponsors and other third parties, though such summary information will not identify any specifics directly related to your identity. We may also provide analysis based on the information we collect, to our strategic alliance partners and other risk sharing partners. We may use the personal identifying information you provide to administer Site usage and monitor traffic-levels, and to contact you regarding improvements we can make to our Site and our services, if necessary. We also may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets and, depending on the transaction, your personally identifiable information may be one of the transferred assets. In the event that we are acquired by another company, your personal information may be part of the assets transferred to the acquiring party. Similarly, if Universal Pest Solutions should ever file for bankruptcy or merge with or be acquired by another company, we may sell the information you provide to us to a third party or share your personal information with any entity resulting from such transaction.
We will use your e-mail address to assist you if you forget your log-in information or to contact you directly regarding services, products or information that we believe might interest you. Only Universal Pest Solutions (or agents working on behalf of Universal Pest Solutions and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these direct mailings. If you do not want to receive such mailings, you can easily opt-out of receiving further marketing from Universal Pest Solutions as provided in Choice/Opt Out below.
You authorize us to disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other illegal activity.
We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Site, in which case Universal Pest Solutions may not be able to provide certain services to you. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before creating your user account. The user that created the account is responsible for maintaining the secrecy of his/her unique password and account information at all times.
Collection and Use of IP Addresses
We may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
When you register at the Site, Universal Pest Solutions uses a cookie to store a unique, random user ID. We do not store passwords or any personal information about you. We may use this ID to identify you anonymously in our database and to track information while you are on our Site. Cookies also enable you to enter the Site as a registered user without having to log on each time.
Confidentiality of Transmissions
Please remember that transmissions on the Internet are not always confidential. You are transmitting this information at your own risk.
If you prefer that we not disclose nonpublic personal information about you to nonaffiliated third parties, you may opt out of those disclosures; that is, you may direct us not to make those disclosures (other than disclosures permitted by law). If you receive communications from us that you do not want to receive, you can opt out from receiving these communications, by specifically telling us to stop sending them to you. We will generally be able to give effect to your withdrawal on 30 days’ notice. If you wish to opt out of disclosures to nonaffiliated third parties, you may email your request to Universal Pest Solutions email@example.com.
Onward Transfer (Transfers to Third Parties)
We will apply the Notice and Opt-out policies discussed above in the event we propose to disclose your information to a third party.
This website takes every reasonable precaution to protect our users’ information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. It should be noted that e mails and other information you send to us, except that which you send us on a secure page, is not encrypted and such transmissions cannot be considered a secure means of transmitting sensitive information. Universal Pest Solutions will never ask you to submit your financial data, such as your credit card account numbers, via e-mail. IF YOU RECEIVE AN EMAIL REQUESTING THAT YOU FORWARD INFORMATION OF THIS NATURE BY EMAIL, PLEASE CONTACT US DIRECTLY AT firstname.lastname@example.org.. DO NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO THE EMAIL. You should be aware of the limitations of security, authentication, encryption, and privacy measures used in connection with the Internet and that any information you transmit through the Site may be damaged, corrupted, “sniffed” and/or accessed by another person without your permission.
Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment, with access restricted.
Regardless of the precautions taken by you or by us, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. We cannot ensure or warrant the ultimate security of any information you transmit.
The Site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Universal Pest Solutions may not be responsible for content or the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site and recommend that they read the privacy statements of each and every website they visit.
