The various registration forms, on-line order forms, and surveys may request that you provide personal information (such as your name, mailing, and e-mail address), demographic information (such as your age and gender), and profile data (such as your preferences in entertainment). You may also opt-in to sharing such information with us through contests or links through our promotional or business partners. Information submitted at the time of registration or submission may be used for marketing and promotional purposes, and may be shared with our affiliates, or with business or promotional partners, with your consent. With your permission, we may use your contact information to send you information about us. You may always opt-out of receiving future mailings (see the Choice/Opt-out section below). We collect personal information about individual users when such personal information is provided to us on a voluntary basis, for the following purposes: (a) to monitor traffic to the Site; (b) to determine the future direction of the Site including any necessary technical upgrades; (c) to contact you regarding future services or changes to the Site; (d) to process purchase orders for Universal products; (e) to promote Universal and for marketing purposes; (f) to respond to customer inquiries and comments; (g) to maintain a list of customers; and (h) to personalize your shopping experience by using your site behavior to shape any recommendations about products which may interest you.

Universal may also use or transfer personal information to its affiliates for the purposes of review, storage and processing. Personal information about users will not be sold to third parties, and will not be otherwise transferred to third parties for any uses other than those purposes stated above, without the user’s express and informed approval.

Security

for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Once we receive your transmission, we will use best efforts to ensure its security on our systems. When you register or place an order, it’s done through a secure server. By using 128-bit encryption through Secure Socket Layers (SSL), the most advanced security available today, we ensure that your information will remain encrypted until it reaches the server. Only then is it decrypted for use on shipping labels or contest ballots, for example.

Cookies

Cookies are pieces of information that a web site transfers to an individual’s computer hard drive for record keeping purposes. Cookies make using the Site easier by, among other things, saving your passwords and preferences for you. As an example, Universal uses cookies to keep track of your shopping cart when you visit our online store, and help identify you when you return to the Store. These cookies are restricted for use only on the Site, and do not transfer any personal information to any other party. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies; however, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. (Note: you will need to consult the help area of your browser application for instructions.) If you choose to disable your cookies setting or refuse to accept a cookie, some parts of the Site will not function properly or may be considerably slower. For example, without cookies, you will not be able to set personalized preferences or you may have difficulty completing shopping transactions, entering contests, or playing games.
