Registration is an optional service provided by our Web Site. You do not have to register to browse our Web Site, but you do have to register to purchase products on our Web Site. When you register, you may be asked for information such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, a password that you select, and your interests, if you choose to register them. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. UWS will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication (including unsolicited correspondence such as letters, phone calls or e-mail messages). Your registration information may be used to help make your online shopping quicker and easier, by pre-filling certain parts of your shopping information. When you register you will have the opportunity to sign up for future marketing information from UWS.

Such information may be recorded and filed by UWS to process your orders. In addition, when you return previously purchased products or request a refund or exchange, you may be asked to give your name, address, driver’s license number, and other identifiable information. UWS collects this information to help prevent fraud and identity theft. If you contact any employee of UWS or any affiliate of UWS, a record of that correspondence may be kept.

However, even with the best technology, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network is 100% secure.

We make no warranty, express, implied, or otherwise, that we will prevent unauthorized access to or use of your personal information.
Usage and Disclosure of Personal Information
We may use your Personal Information for record keeping purposes, to improve the content of our site, to customize the site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), site management, fulfillment of requested purchase orders, and marketing and research purposes.
UWS uses Personal Information to continually assess and improve the products and services we offer. To serve you better, we may combine the Personal Information that you give us with publicly available information and information we receive from or cross-reference with our marketing partners and others. We use that combined information to enhance and personalize your shopping experience with us, to communicate with you about our products and events that may be of interest to you, and for other promotional purposes.
Some of our operations, such as our electronic commerce functions, may be managed by service providers who are unaffiliated companies.

If your purchases are being shipped to you, your shipping information will be shared with our delivery service providers (U.S. Postal Service, UPS, or other delivery companies we or you select). Our delivery service providers are asked not to use your Personal Information for any purpose other than making the delivery.
We enter into marketing relationships with advertisers or other companies that provide products or services that we believe may be of interest to our customers. We will share your Personal Information with those marketing partners in order to help them send you information that we believe will be of interest to you.

When you place orders on our Web Site, all of your order information, including your card number and delivery address, is transmitted through the Internet using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL technology causes your browser to encrypt your order information before transmitting it to our secure server. SSL technology, an industry standard, is designed to prevent someone other than operators of our Sites from capturing and viewing your Personal Information. Since any order information you provide to us on our Web Site will be transmitted using a secure connection, if your Web browser cannot support this level of security, you will not be able to order products through our Web Site. The most recent versions of commonly used Internet browsers can usually support a secure connection and can be downloaded for free from the web sites for those browsers.
