For additional information and resources on COPPA, please visit the Federal Trade Commission Web site at http://www.ftc.gov/. The Ummy Website and any Software or Services available on that site are not directed at children under 13 years of age and, therefore, COPPA does not apply.

Web beacons are used in combination with cookies to help website operators understand how visitors interact with their websites.

As opposed to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. These web beacons are not tied to personally identifiable information. The use of a web beacons allows the site to measure the actions of the visitor opening the page that contains the web beacon. It makes it easier to follow and record the activities of a recognized browser, such as the path of pages visited at a website. Ummy uses the information provided by web beacons to develop a better understanding of how the Website’s visitors use the Website, and to facilitate those visitors' interactions with the Website. Ummy may make the aggregate data obtained from web analytics (including from our third party analytics providers, if applicable) publicly available. If this data is made available, none of the information will be personally identifying information or potentially-personally identifying information.
Ummy collects information from you in order to record and support your participation in the activities provided by Ummy. We may use your e-mail address to send a confirmation e-mail when you sign up for a User Account and, if necessary, may use other information you provide to contact you for help to process the purchase or service you have selected. Your personal information also may be used to keep you informed about new services, service upgrades, special offers, and other Services.
As described above, Ummy may collect information about your use of the Website and Services. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually. Ummy may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.
Although we will always strive to guard your identity, we may disclose your personally identifiable information without your permission in limited circumstances. We will only do so if we have a good-faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) comply with laws, regulations, or government requests or (2) to investigate or protect against harmful activities to our guests, visitors, associates, or property (including the Website or Services), or to others. If we are required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide your personally identifiable information, we will only do so upon receipt of appropriate documentation. We may also disclose your information to investigate violation of and enforce our Terms of Service. Please know that we do not take this responsibility lightly. Your privacy is of paramount importance to us.
Ummy does use the services of third parties, such as e-mail service providers, purchase, shipping and order processing merchants and marketing companies that act as independent contractors on behalf of Ummy. These parties are contractually prohibited from using personally identifiable information for any purpose other than for the purpose Ummy specifies. We do provide non-personally identifiable information to certain service providers for their use on an aggregated basis for the purpose of performing their contractual obligations to us. We prohibit the sale or transfer of personal information to entities outside of the Ummy’s affiliates for their use without your approval.
In the event that all or substantially all of Ummy’s stock and/or all or substantially all assets are transferred or sold to another entity, Ummy may transfer personally identifiable information to the acquiring entity. If, as a result of such a business transition, your personally identifiable information will be used in a materially different manner, you will be given choice consistent with our policy regarding notification of changes.
You can always choose whether or not to disclose personally identifiable information and that choice will not prevent you from using the Website. Please note, however, if you should choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with some of the Services dependent upon the collection of this information and you will be given an opportunity to “opt-in” and make your preference choices for any items that are optional and which are not prerequisite for our rendering such Services.
You can choose at any time to opt out of receiving emails from Ummy by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email you receive from Ummy or by contacting Ummy directly at: email@example.com . If you elect to opt out, we will not, as applicable, share your personal information with third parties or send you emails. However, we may continue to use your personal information for internal purposes, to enhance your user experience or as necessary to administer the site or comply with applicable law.
We reserve the right to send a one-time registration confirmation email, and infrequent service alert messages to users to inform you of specific changes that may impact your ability to use a service that you have previously signed up for, regardless of email contact opt-in status. We also reserve the right to contact you if compelled to do so as part of a legal proceeding or if there has been a violation of any applicable licensing, warranty and purchase agreements.
Ummy is retaining these rights because in limited cases we feel that we may need the right to contact you as a matter of law or regarding matters that will be important to you. These rights do not allow us to contact you to market a new or existing Service if you have asked us not to do so, and issuance of these types of communications is rare.
If you wish to opt out of receiving emails, the sharing or retention of any personal identification information, or otherwise change your personal preferences, you must contact Ummy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To ensure that your request is honored, you must provide Ummy with information sufficient for us to accurately identify and access your records. The information we require is your full name, address and the email address you provided to Ummy when you requested Services or Software. Ummy reserves the right to contact you to verify that we have accurately identified your record.
Please note that if you provide Ummy with inconsistent privacy preferences (for example, by indicating on one occasion that third parties may contact you with marketing offers and indicating on another occasion that they may not), Ummy cannot guarantee that your most recent privacy preference will be honored.
