Web Site Users
UPRAA generally collects personally identifiable information such as a name, postal address, E-mail address, telephone number, or credit card information with your specific knowledge and consent.
How does the Web site use information supplied by me? Occasionally, visitors to our Web site may be asked to supply certain personally identifying information, which is then retained by the UPRAA. For example, we ask you for certain information if you choose to subscribe to our E-mail newsletters, register for our online discussion forums, or purchase reservations for events. If you choose to give us personally identifying information at such time, such information will be retained by us and used only to provide you with products or services you have requested, or with additional information from UPRAA about UPRAA, its affiliates, or selected outside companies whose products or services we feel may be of use to you. Any information from selected outside companies will be transmitted by UPRAA so that such companies will not have access either to your E-mail address or to your other personally identifying information. Moreover, we will not sell or rent any personally identifying information obtained through the Web site to any other company or organization.
If, at some point after giving UPRAA your personally identifying information, you do not wish to continue to receive additional information from UPRAA about UPRAA, its affiliates, or selected outside companies, in general, you may opt out by E-mailing and put the words "remove my name" in the subject line of your E-mail; in the case of our E-mail newsletters, you also may follow the procedures at our E-mail newsletter registration page.
From time to time, the personally identifying information that you provide to us may be shared with our suppliers or service providers who assist us in maintaining and managing our E-newsletters, our archives, our premium online content, our online discussion forums, and other activities on the Web site. Such suppliers or service providers may use your personally identifying information only in the course of providing services to UPRAA but they may not use such information for other purposes.
While your individual information is protected as discussed above, UPRAA reserves the right to use such individual information to create aggregated, anonymous data about users in order to develop statistics about activity on and visitors to the Web site. In addition, UPRAA may disclose personal information if we in good faith believe that such action is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with legal process; (2) protect and defend our rights and property; (3) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Web site; or (4) protect the personal safety, property, or rights of our users or the public.
How is my credit card information used when I join UPRAA or make a purchase? When you join or make a purchase, we ask you to provide your credit card information so that we can process your payment. During the ordering process, such credit card information is transmitted to UPRAA third-party credit card processors and card issuers that must use your information to process your order.
