By using this site, you are deemed to have agreed to this policy. This policy will advise you about how we protect your personal information, and about your choices concerning our use of your personal information. Please read this policy carefully. We may need to change this policy from time to time in order to address new issues and reflect changes on our site. We will post those changes here, so please refer back to this policy regularly.
PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION INFORMATION
We will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily give it to us. Except as specified in this site, we will not intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user (such as, your full name, street address, telephone number, credit card number or e-mail address) to any third party without your consent or permission. USF Collections, Inc. (the “Company”) may share your information with other affiliated companies. Your information may be shared with agents or contractors of the Company in connection with services that these individuals or entities perform for the Company.
We may request personal identification information from you in connection with your use of, or participation in, surveys, registrations, requests for suggestions, and in connection with other activities, services or resources we make available to you. Again, please note that you must voluntarily give this information to us. If you identify yourself to us by sending us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use your personal information to respond to your questions or comments.
Additionally, we will release specific information about you to comply with any valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of the security of the Company’s websites, or a physical threat to you or others.
NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION AND THE USE OF COOKIE TECHNOLOGY
We may collect non-personal information through the use of either “cookie” technology, IP address tracking, or both. Non-personal information is information that does not identify you personally and might include the browser you use, the type of computer, the operating systems, the Internet service providers and other similar information. Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your hard drive, not on the Company’s site. Cookies allow us to personalize your experience at the Company’s site by automatically gathering information about the areas you visit on our site and about the links you may select from within our site to other areas of the World Wide Web or elsewhere online. Cookies also allow you to store your password (in the event one is necessary), without having to constantly re-enter it.
We use such information in the aggregate to understand how our users as a group use the services and resources provided on our site. In this way we know which areas of our site are favorites of our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our site.
CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13
USF Collections, Inc. is committed to protecting the safety and privacy of children who visit our web site. USFCollections.com is not directed at anyone under the age of 13, and no one under the age of 13 should provide personal information on this web site. Our web site may include features or material that may be appealing to children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information online from children under the age of 13 and USFCollections.com does not sell, rent, or trade the personal information about children under the age of 13 obtained from parents/guardians online at this web site to anyone.
A SPECIAL NOTE FOR PARENTS CONCERNING PRIVACY
USF Collections, Inc. believes that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. Please instruct your children not to give us their names, e-mail addresses, or, more generally, to provide any other personal information to anyone without your permission.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES AND LIABILITY TO THIRD PARTIES
Users may find advertising or other content on our site that provide links to the sites and services of our partners, sponsors, licensors, and other third parties. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and we are not responsible for the information or links you may find there. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies, or no policy at all. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party site or service before providing them with your personal information. The presence of these links on this website is not intended to imply our endorsement of that site or its goods or services, but to provide a convenient link to relevant sites managed by other organizations, companies, or individuals.
Although we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identification information, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure. The Company will have no liability for disclosure of information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties.
The Company will make reasonable efforts to keep secure the data you provide us and will take reasonable precautions in an effort to protect your personal identification information from loss, misuse, or alteration.
CHOICE / OPT-OUT
If at any time you would like to stop receiving information from us, you can let us know by sending an e-mail stating your preference to the Company’s Investor Relations department at the address provided in the Company’s site. We will then use reasonable efforts to remove your personal identification information from our files, unless we are entitled to retain it pursuant to an agreement that you have entered into with the Company.
TRANSFER OF BUSINESS ASSETS
As we continue to develop our business, we may be acquired, merge with another business, acquire or buy other businesses or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. In such an event, both personal identification and non-personal information will be one of the transferred assets.
