Although unitedlabsinc.com asks only for your email address and for you to establish a password, we do not link that information to an account or access to an account nor do we associate your email address with any other personal information through the unitedlabsinc.com website. However, you may choose to give United personal information or information relating to your business or organization in ways other than through unitedlabsinc.com in a variety of situations. For example, you may want to give United your name and contact information to communicate with you, to order a product, to process an order, to register for a service, to provide you with a subscription, or to do business with United if you are a supplier or a business partner. You may also provide your credit card details to buy something from United or may share a description of your education and work experience in connection with a job opening at United for which you wish to be considered. If you tell United that you do not want United to use your information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your request, we will respect your wishes. We may also collect information relating to your use of our Web sites and other offerings through the use of various technologies. For example, when you visit our Web sites or access our other offerings, we may log certain information that your browser sends United, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access time, and referring Web site addresses, and we may collect information about the pages or videos you view within our sites and other actions you take while visiting United. In addition, we may ask for or employ technologies that allow United to collect certain information about product use. We may also use such technologies to determine whether you have opened an e-mail or clicked on a link contained in an e-mail. Collecting information in this manner allows United to collect statistics about the usage and effectiveness of our Web sites, our products and our other offerings, personalize your experience and tailor our interactions with you. For details regarding the technologies we employ see Cookies, Web Beacons and Other Technologies below. From time to time, we may also collect information that pertains to you indirectly through other sources, such as list vendors. When we do so, we ask the vendors to confirm that the information was legally acquired by the third party and that we have the right to obtain it from them and use it. The information that we collect, either directly or indirectly, may be combined to help United improve its overall accuracy and completeness and to help United better tailor our interactions with you. Use of Personal Information
The following describe some of the ways that we may use any personal information you provide:
Fulfilling your Transaction Request.
If you request a product or service, a callback, or specific marketing materials, we will use the information you provide to fulfill your request. To help United do this, we may share information with others, for instance, our business partners, financial institutions, shipping companies, or postal or government authorities, such as Customs authorities, involved in fulfillment. In connection with a transaction, we may also contact you as part of our customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes. Personalizing your Experience on our Web Sites. We may use information we collect about you to provide you with a personalized experience on our Web sites, such as providing you with content in which you may be interested and making navigation on our sites easier.
Mobile Applications and Use of Information in the Social Computing Environment.
Please be aware that in certain circumstances, personal information may be subject to disclosure to government agencies pursuant to judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process. We may also share your information to protect the rights or property of United, our employees, customers and business partners and others when we have reasonable grounds to believe that such rights or property have been or could be affected. Retention
United will retain your registration information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you products or services. If you wish to request that we no longer use your registration information to provide you product or services contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will retain and use your registration information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements
Cookies, Web Beacons and Other Technologies
As mentioned above, we collect information from your visits to our Web sites to help us gather statistics about usage and effectiveness, personalize your experience, and tailor our interactions with you. We do so through the use of various technologies, including scripts, tags, Local Shared Objects (Flash cookies), Local Storage (HTML5) beacons, and one called “cookies”. A cookie is a piece of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as a tag that identifies your computer. While cookies are often only used to measure Web site usage (such as number of visitors and duration of visit) and effectiveness (such as topics visitors are most interested in) and to allow for ease of navigation or use and, as such, are not associated with any personal information, they are also used at times to personalize a known visitor's experience to a Web site by being associated with profile information or user preferences. Over time this information provides valuable insight to help improve the user experience. Cookies are typically categorized as “session&rdquo cookies or “persistent” cookies. Session cookies help you navigate through the Web site efficiently, keeping track of your progression from page to page so that you are not asked for information you have already provided during the current visit. Session cookies are stored in temporary memory and erased when the web browser is closed. Persistent cookies, on the other hand, store user preferences for current and successive visits. They are written on your device's hard disk and are still valid when you restart your browser. We use persistent cookies, for example, to record your choice of language and country location. You can generally express your privacy preferences regarding the use of most cookies and similar technologies though your web browser. Look under the heading “Tools” (or similar heading) in your particular browser for information about controlling cookies. You can set your browser in most instances to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it or not. You can also generally set your browser to turn off cookies. If you block, turn off or otherwise reject our cookies, some Web pages may not display properly or you will not be able, for instance, to add items to your shopping cart, proceed to checkout, or use Web site services that require you to sign in. Some of our Web sites may also use Web beacon or other technologies to better tailor those sites to provide better customer service. These technologies may be in use on a number of pages across United's Web sites. When a visitor accesses these pages, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by United. These Web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If you don't want your cookie information to be associated with your visits to these pages or use of these products, you can set your browser to turn off cookies or turn off cookies in the product itself, respectively. If you turn off cookies, Web beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to these pages; however, they will not be associated with information otherwise stored in cookies. We may use Local Shared Objects, such as Flash cookies, and Local Storage, such as HTML5, to store content information and preferences. Third parties with whom we may partner to provide certain features on our website or to display United’s advertising on other web sites based upon your web browsing activity may also use Flash cookies or HTML5 to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5. We may also include Web beacons in marketing e-mail messages or our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and links contained within clicked on. Some of our business partners may set Web beacons and cookies on our site. In addition third-party social media buttons may log certain information such as your IP address, browser type and language, access time, and referring Web site addresses, and, if you are logged in to those social media sites, they may also link such collected information with your profile information on that site. We do not control these third-party tracking technologies.
United does not deliver third party online advertisements on our Web sites but we may advertise our products and services on others' Web sites. Please familiarize yourself with those Web site operators' or network advertisers' privacy policies to understand their practices relating to advertising, including what type of information they may collect about your Internet usage.
Links to Non-United Web Sites and Third-Party Applications
To allow you to interact with other Web sites on which you may have accounts (such as Facebook and other social media sites) or join communities on such sites, we may provide links or embed third-party applications that allow you to login, post content or join communities from our Web sites. We may also provide you with general links to non-United Web sites.
Your use of these links and applications is subject to the third parties’ privacy policies, and you should become familiar with the privacy policies of any such third-party sites before using the links or applications. United is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those other Web sites.
