The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your experience with UNIVERSAL NOTES™. Here are the types of information we gather.
We receive and store any information you enter on our SITE or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future products for you, improving our offerings and communicating with you. Please be aware that if you disclose information on SITE message boards or chat areas, that information may be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited communications from third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of UNIVERSAL NOTES™. Such information that you may give to us may include:
We collect your information when you send us inquiries, submit content to the SITE in any way, via mail, email or over the phone, as well as when you submit information on forms that exist on our SITE. You can choose not to provide us with certain information and can visit our SITE without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. However, that may result in your not being able to use certain features of our SERVICES or inaccurate transaction results because such information may be required in order to use those features.
We may also track SERVICES activity for the purposes of maintaining user accounts, user and customer support, targeted recommendations to you, notice of special events and opportunities and managing the operation of our SERVICES.
We may also collect information in the form of log files that are generated during transactions with the SERVICES, including usage patterns, IP addresses, browser type, browsing, and the frequency of use of certain SERVICES.
To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from UNIVERSAL NOTES™ if your computer supports such capabilities.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many web SITEs, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses the SITE or other content served by or on behalf of UNIVERSAL NOTES™ on other websites.
When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the SERVICE or information you have requested). In general, UNIVERSAL NOTES™ collects personal information when you use our SERVICES for the following purposes:
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we do not sell it or share it with others. We do use Third-Party Service Providers including other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Your Participation If you participate in a promotion, we may share your personal information with business partners offering the products, SERVICES, promotions, contests and/or sweepstakes. We will remind you of this in any registration form used to participate in any such promotion. We won’t share your personal information with these businesses unless you choose to participate in their offer or program. When you choose to engage in a particular offer or program, you authorize us to share your email address and other information with the relevant business partner.
Any personally identifiable information you submit on a forum board, blog, comment about the SITE, or any other public forum on our SITE can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We recommend that you do not provide your name, email address or any other personal information. You may not provide the names, email addresses or other personal information of any other person in such postings. Please note that if you choose to do so, it is at your own risk and you accept full responsibility for those posts and any consequences that may arise from posting this information.
We may share your non-personal information in any of the above circumstances. Also, we may share aggregated non-personal information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for general business analysis purposes. For example, we may provide our advertisers or partners with the number of visitors to our SITE and the most popular features or SERVICES accessed. This information does not contain any personal information. It may be used to develop and deliver targeted SERVICES or advertising on our SITE and on websites of third parties.
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using software, which encrypts information you input. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer. You should feel confident using our SITE. However, no system can be completely secure. Although we take very significant steps to secure your information that is under our control and appropriately limit access to it, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us by email, and you do so at your own risk.
We aim to keep our information about you as accurate as possible. If you would like to review or update your personal information you have supplied us with, you may do so by logging in to your account.
Our SITE may include third-party advertising and links to other websites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or thirdparty websites.
UNIVERSAL NOTES™ does not sell products for purchase by children. If you are under 18, you may use the SITE only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
