1) Collected Information.
Unique Card Services™ collects several types of information from and about users of the Web Site. Generally, this information falls into two categories: "Personally Identifiable Information" and "Non-Personally Identifiable Information."
Personally Identifiable Information
For the purposes of this Policy, "Personally Identifiable Information" means information identifying a particular individual, such as an individual's name, postal address, e-mail address, and phone number. Personally Identifiable Information does not include Non-Personally Identifiable Information as defined herein. However, if we link such information with Personally Identifiable Information in a manner that identifies a particular individual, then Unique Card Services™ will treat all such information as Personally Identifiable Information.
Unless permitted by law, no Personally Identifiable Information is collected about an individual without first obtaining his or her consent to the collection, use and dissemination of that information. Consent may be written, verbal or implied as necessary to further your needs. Personally Identifiable Information will be collected, to the extent possible, directly from the individual concerned.
The following are certain situations in which Unique Card Services™ may collect Personally Identifiable Information from you based on your consent:
- When you fill out forms or fields on the Web Site;
- When you communicate with us or request information about us, the Web Site and/or our services, whether via e-mail or other means;
- When you participate in online surveys or other marketing initiatives by Unique Card Services™, including contests, events or promotions; and
- When you provide User Generated Content, as defined below.
Also, Unique Card Services™ may collect Personally Identifiable Information about you from sources other than you, such as forums, instant messaging services, blogs, other users of our products and services and our business partners.
If you use any functionality on this Site allowing you to send content to a friend or other user, please note that:
- Unique Card Services™ may display your e-mail address to your friend or user; and
- Unique Card Services™ may use information you provide about your friend or user to facilitate the communication and as otherwise set forth in this Policy.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
For the purposes of this Policy, "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" means: (a) demographic information about you such as gender, zip code, and birth date; (b) business contact information such as your office address, job title, business phone number, e-mail address, fax number or other related business contact information; (c) any information, recorded in any form, about more than one individual where the identity of the individuals is not known and cannot be inferred from the information; (d) screen names or user names you may provide to Unique Card Services™ or through the Web Site; and (e) information regarding your preferences and usage.
Unique Card Services™ may collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information about you through a variety of technical methods, including the following:
