At Umuse, protecting your privacy is very important to us. We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of information about our users and their organizations. As such, we view privacy and security as the most critical components of what we do, and our commitment to them is foundational to the success of our products and the business of the company.
Your Content and Privacy is Not for Sale
Simply put, we do not and will not sell or rent Your Content to anyone, for any reason. We treat the privacy and security of Your Content very seriously. Except for the legal situations described in the Privacy & Security section of our Terms of Service, no Personnel will ever read or access Your Content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in Your Content. In short, what belongs to you stays with you, it is yours!
What Information We Collect & Why
We collect and use the information to help us deliver the absolute best product experience possible. This information allows us to tune the user experience over time, optimizing the Service based on your feedback and how you actually use the Service. In addition, we use some of this information to protect and improve the security and confidentiality of the Service.
We collect different kinds of information for different purposes. Some of it is personally identifiable and some is non-identifying or aggregated. Here are the types of information we collect or receive:
Cookies and Related Technologies
Like many websites we use technologies such as Cookies and Web Beacons to record log data, collect usage information and customize the Service on your behalf.
Cookies are small text files sent by us to your computer and from your computer to us, each time you visit our website. They are unique to your Account or your browser. Some cookies are associated with your Account and personal information in order to remember that you are logged in. Other cookies are not tied to your Account but allow us to do, among other things, site analytics and customization. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use the Service.
Web Beacons (also known as single-pixel gifs, pixel tags or clear gifs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on our Service for several purposes, including to deliver or communicate with Cookies, to track and measure the performance of our Service, to monitor how many visitors view and interact with our Service, and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. Unlike Cookies, which are stored on the user’s hard drive, Web Beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages or in an e-mail.
How We Use Information
We use the information we collect to provide, maintain, customize, protect and improve the Service, to develop new features and to protect both Umuse and our users. We use your information for the following:
How We Share Information
There are times when communications, related content, and other user information may be shared by Umuse. This section discusses only how we may share user information. Companies or organizations that use the Service may have their own policies for sharing and disclosure of information they can access through the Service. We may share information:
We make good faith efforts to provide you access to your personal information upon request and to let you correct such data if it is inaccurate and delete it, when reasonably possible. If your personal information changes, you may update it using the settings link in the Application. When you update information, we may keep a copy of the prior version for our records.
We may access, preserve, and disclose your personal information, other account information, and content, including after you terminate usage of our Service, if we believe doing so is required or appropriate to: comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, respond to your requests; or protect yours’, ours’ or others’ rights, property, or safety.
You can uninstall the Umuse application at any time. When you uninstall the software, the application and all its associated data files will be deleted. Once deleted it cannot be recovered. However, if your Account is still valid, you may access the Service through other desktop, mobile or web applications.
If you close your Account and terminate your use of our Service, all of your personal information and content will be deleted. Once deleted it cannot be recovered. However, it can take up to one month to delete an account after account closure and some information may remain in backup copies for a reasonable period of time.
You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that our Service may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your user ID at login and you will need to re-enter it.
Our Service may contain links to websites, services and content that are maintained by third parties we do not control. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these third parties, and we recommend that you visit the privacy policies of each website that you visit. We may allow third parties to place and read their own cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to collect information automatically through the sites and online services.
Security and Data Protection
We take reasonable steps to protect information you provide to us as part of your use of the Service from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure. These steps take into account the sensitivity of the information we collect, process and store and the current state of technology. When you enter sensitive information (such as login credentials) we encrypt the transmission of that information using technologies such as SSL. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal data submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no electronic or email transmission or digital storage mechanism is ever fully secure or error free and we accept no liability for unintentional disclosure.
Our Service is not directed to children under 13. We do not knowingly collect, maintain, or use Personal Information from children under 13 years of age, and no part of the Service is intended for or directed to persons under the age of 18. If you learn that a child has provided us with Personal Information without your consent, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we learn that we have collected any Personal Information from children under 13, we will promptly take steps to delete such information and terminate the child’s account.
