Privacy Policy

USCS.org Privacy Policy

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. That is why we have adopted this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy lets you know how your personal information is processed and used. We promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Policy. The following policies are only in effect for the Web pages owned and operated by the Universal Ship Cancellation Society, (“USCS”). (The USCS Network includes all USCS controlled Web sites and certain other Internet media properties controlled by USCS.) The following discloses our Privacy Policy.

 

What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, that serve as that computer’s “Internet Protocol” IP address. When a visitor requests a page from any Web site within the USCS Network, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the USCS Network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.

 

What are cookies?

From time to time, USCS may send a “cookie” to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie can’t read data off of your computer hard disk or read cookie files created by other Web sites. Cookies do not damage your system. We may use cookies to identify which areas of USCS’s Network you have visited or customized, so the next time you visit, those pages may be readily accessible. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our Site and other Web sites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

 

What information do you collect when I use the chat room?

USCS collects the username used to login to the chat room, the IP address of the computer, and all information posted to the chat room. All chat room messages are archived, and may be edited, modified, or deleted without notice.

 

What other information do you request?

We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a survey or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about conferences and trade shows). 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 that means that we do not sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third-party. Wherever USCS collects personal information we will make an effort to include a link to this Privacy Policy on that page.

 

Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?

USCS will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:

Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on USCS,

Protect and defend the rights or property of the USCS Network of sites and related properties, or visitors to the USCS Network of sites and related properties,

Identify persons who may be violating the law, the USCS legal notice and Web site User Agreement, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing the USCS Network or its related properties, Fulfill a user’s order or request.

USCS uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure.

 

What else should I know about my privacy when online?

The USCS Network contains many hyperlinks to third party Web sites. USCS is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third party Web sites or advertisers. USCS does not share any of the individual personal information you provide USCS with the third parties to which USCS links, except as stated elsewhere within this Privacy Policy, although USCS may share general, aggregate data with such third parties (such as how many people use our site). Please check with those Web sites to determine their privacy policy.

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example through e-mail, discussion lists, or elsewhere – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you’re online.

 

Your Consent To This Agreement

By using the USCS Network, you consent to the collection and use of information by USCS as specified above. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
