    United Dance Merchants of America is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Statement sets forth our current privacy practices with regard to the information we collect when you or your computer interact with our website.

  2. PARTICIPATING MERCHANT POLICIES

    Related services and offerings with links from this website, including vendor sites, have their own privacy statements that can be viewed by clicking on the corresponding links within each respective website. Online merchants and others who participate in United Dance Merchants of America services are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude towards consumer privacy. However, since we do not have direct control over the policies or practices of participating merchants and other third parties, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of those sites. We recommend and encourage that you always review the privacy policies of merchants and other third parties before you provide any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties.

  3. INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT

    www.udma.org may use cookies to personalize or enhance your user experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web Server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

    One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.

    United Dance Merchants of America reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into www.udma.org a site that relies on third-party cookies).

    You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Website.

    Google Analytics Service
    www.udma.org uses the Google Analytics service to track visitor site usage patterns across individual pages and the site as a whole, the amount of time visitors spend on the site pages, general geographic location of visitors, search engine traffic, and referral traffic sent to us from external websites.

    Google Analytics forbids the use of its service to track Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of website visitors. It uses first party cookies to track anonymous visitor data in aggregate. This cookie expires two years from the date of the initial visit.

    We may also track anonymous demographic data in aggregate, such as age and interests to help us determine the type of content that interests our site users. You have the ability to opt out of Google Analytics tracking by blocking cookies in your browser settings or installing the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser Extension (available here)

  4. Personal Information Users

    Visitors to our website can register to purchase services. When you register, we will request some personal information such as name, address, email, telephone number or facsimile number, account number and other relevant information. If you are purchasing a service, we will request financial information. Any financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the services you purchased. If you purchase by credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider. For other types of registrations, we will ask for the relevant information. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.

    We will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to third parties without your permission except to the extent necessary including:

    • To fulfill your service requests for services.
    • To protect ourselves from liability,
    • To respond to legal process or comply with law, or
    • In connection with a merger, acquisition, or liquidation of the company.
  5. USE OF WEB BEACONS OR GIF FILES

    United Dance Merchants of America Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons – sometimes also called single-pixel gifs – that allow United Dance Merchants of America to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. United Dance Merchants of America may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

    Some of these Web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These Web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our website and how you use the site. United Dance Merchants of America prohibits Web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.

  6. ACCESSING WEB ACCOUNT INFORMATION

    We will provide you with the means to ensure that personally identifiable information in your web account file is correct and current. You may review this information by contacting us by sending an email to our support attendant.

  7. CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT

    United Dance Merchants of America has the discretion to occasionally update this privacy statement. When we do, we will also revise the “updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy page. We encourage you to periodically review this privacy policy to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the service constitutes your agreement to this privacy policy and any updates.
