Your privacy on unitedft.com
What information do we gather?
Information on unitedft.com is gathered in two ways: (1) indirectly (for example, through our website’s technology); and (2) directly (for example, when you provide information on various pages of unitedft.com).
One example of information we collect indirectly is through our Internet access logs. When you access unitedft.com, your Internet (IP) address is automatically collected and is placed in our Internet access logs. We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the website, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
In accessing this service, no client, advisory, fiduciary or professional relationship is implicated or established and neither UFT nor any other person is, in connection with this website, engaged in rendering auditing, accounting, tax, legal, advisory, consulting or other professional services or advice.
You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your browser. Typically, by accessing the browser’s help feature, you can obtain information on how to prevent your browser from accepting all cookies or to notify you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our website and other websites may be diminished, and some features may not work as intended.
We also collect information when you voluntarily submit it to us. Throughout our website, we may provide the opportunity to register for an event, order a white paper, or participate in an online survey. When we collect this type of information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for information, and how this information will be used. It is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.
What other information does UFT request?
We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a survey, adding you to our mailing list or by your request, have someone contact you for additional information. Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested. We maintain a strict “No SPAM” policy, which means we do not intend to sell, rent or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third party, without your consent. If you are a member of our mailing list, you will be contacted with announcements, news, portfolio additions, and new products or services. You have the option of “Unsubscribing” from our mailing list at any time, thereby disabling any further such e-mail communication from being sent to you. If you wish to have specific communications with a member of the UFT staff, you will be required to provide specific information that will be routed to the appropriate contact within UFT.
How do we use this information?
We analyze it to determine what is most effective about our website, to help us identify ways to improve it, and eventually, to determine how we can tailor unitedft.com to make it more effective. We may also use data for other purposes, which we would describe to you at the point we collect the information.
Will we share this information with outside parties?
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We may partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user requests these services, we will share names or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services, nor do we grant these companies any independent right to share this information.
We will not rent or sell individual information and will share it only with our advisors or partners.
UFT will disclose your personal information or any of its log file information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such actions are necessary to:
Conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a legal process served on UFT;
protect and defend the rights or property of UFT or visitors of UFT;
identify persons who may be violating the law, the legal notice or the rights of third parties; and
cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities.
What about sensitive personal data?
Do we give you access to your information?
You are entitled to know whether we hold information about you and, if we do, to have access to that information and require it to be corrected if it is inaccurate. You can do this by contacting us via our Site Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What about data security?
We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data on unitedft.com. You should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended.
