Terms and Conditions
Collection and Use of Personal Information.
USFI wants to give you as much control as possible over information that personally identifies you ("Personal Information"). In general, you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any of your Personal Information. There are times, however, when we may need this information from you. This includes when you (1) open an account online, (2) request information to be sent to you, (3) contact us about our products or services, or (4) utilize our services on this website. We will use this Personal Information to reply to your requests and inquiries, to process account applications, to service accounts, and to assist with questions about membership, billing, or use of our products or online services. Collected data will generally be kept at our headquarters in Dallas, Texas. We also may use this information to provide you with updated information on USFI products and services, to alert you to special product and service offerings, and to conduct research, surveys or engage in other targeted marketing purposes. You may elect not to have your Personal Information used for any of these purposes ("opt-out") by notifying us at the address listed above or by sending an e-mail to email@example.com. Where applicable, you also may opt out by checking the box that indicates, "Check here if you do not want Personal Information disclosed or used." Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information: Our web service automatically gathers certain non-personal information about the usage of our site. We collect this non-personal data only on an aggregate basis. This collective data, which is used for internal purposes, helps us improve your online experience and facilitate your visit to our website. We do not connect this non-personal data to any Personal Information collected from you. Collected data will generally be kept at our Headquarters in Dallas, Texas. It may in the course of internal use be shared with our wholly owned affiliates worldwide as applicable.
Disclosure of Personal Information
USFI takes very seriously its responsibility to keep your Personal Information private. We may select unaffiliated companies to occasionally send you information or special offerings about products or services that are related to USFI’s products and services. We will share Personal Information for this purpose only with those unaffiliated companies whose policies regarding Personal Information are consistent with our privacy policies or who agree to abide by our policies with respect to Personal Information. If you do not want us to send your Personal Information to other select unaffiliated companies for this purpose, you may opt out by notifying us at the address listed above, by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or, if applicable, by checking the appropriate box declining your permission to disclose such Personal Information. We also may disclose Personal Information when required to do so by law or when such action is necessary or appropriate (a) to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on USFI, (b) to protect and defend the rights or property of USFI, or (c) to protect the personal safety of users of our website. We reserve the right to contact the appropriate authority at our discretion when it appears that activities that are illegal or violate USFI’s terms of service are taking place within the context of a member account. Except under the limited circumstances described above, we will not disclose any of your Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties.
How Personal Information Is Protected
USFI takes reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information. We use technologies and processes such as access control procedures, network firewalls and physical security. These technologies and methods increase the security and privacy of information traveling to, from and within our Web site. We also safeguard Personal Information from unauthorized access. Only authorized USFI employees or agents carrying out permitted business functions are permitted to access Personal Information. Employees who violate USFI’s privacy access policies are subject to disciplinary actions, including termination when appropriate.
