Thank you for visiting ubAlert.com, a Disaster Alert Network LLC (DAN) website. Our users' privacy is our priority. In an effort to better protect your privacy, we offer this statement that explains our online information practices, as well as the choices our users can make about the way their information is collected used on our websites.

The Information We Collect

At some DAN sites, we may from time to time products or premium services available for sale; users can enter contests, vote in polls or otherwise express his opinion, subscribe to one of our services such as our online newsletters or participate in any of our online forums or communities. The few types of personally identifiable information that may be requested and collected on these pages might include:

On certain pages within our websites, only users who provide us with any variation of the requested personally identifiable information shall be able to order products, programs or services or otherwise participate in the website's activities and offerings.

We also reserve the right to collect certain non-personally identifiable information when users visit many of our websites, including information regarding the browser release a user might be using (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system a user is using, (e.g., Microsoft Windows or Mac OS) and the domain name of a user's internet service provider (ISP address) (e.g., America Online, EarthLink).


Other Ways We Use Collected Information

We may use the information users provide about themselves to fulfill requests for our products, programs or services to respond to inquiries about our offerings and to offer other products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to our users.

We sometimes use this information to communicate with users, such as to send notifications when a user has won one of our contests, when changes are made to our subscriber agreements or service related issues, to fulfill a request by a user for an online newsletter or to contact a user about his account with us.

We use the information that users provide about others to enable us to send them gifts or cards ordered/requested/purchased by our users. From time to time, we also may use this information to offer our products, programs or services to them. The information we collect in connection with our online forums and communities is used to provide an interactive experience. We use this information to facilitate participation in these online forums and communities and, from time to time, to offer users products, programs or services.

If users choose to submit content for publication (e.g., a letter to our editors, comments sent to our television personalities, a posting to a blog or a discussion board), we will publish the author's screen name and other information the user has provided to us.

We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our website and to enable us to personalize our users' and visitors internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as to offer products, programs or services. This is done to ensure your visit to our websites is enjoyable.

We may be required to disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal processes; for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request, or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our terms of use, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our website and applicable laws or as otherwise required or permitted by law or consistent with legal requirements. We are legally and ethically bound to provide this information and will in all instances disclose any information in a legal manner when requested in the situations outlined above. In addition, we may transfer personally identifiable information about you if we or one of our business units are acquired by, sold to or merged with another company. Agents and contractors who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy by ensuring the information will not be used for any other purpose other than to carry out the services it provides on our behalf.

Although we taken all appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure any user that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.

Certain DAN sites may disclose personally identifiable information to companies whose practices are not covered by this Privacy Policy (e.g., other marketers, magazine publishers, retailers, participatory databases, and non-profit organizations) that wish to market products or services to any user. If a site shares personally identifiable information, it will provide users with an opportunity to opt out or block such uses either at the point of submission of personally identifiable information or prior to any such disclosure.

We may on occasion combine information we receive online with outside records to enhance our ability to market to users those products or services that may be of interest to them. If you have signed up to receive our e-mails and prefer not to receive marketing information from this site, follow the "unsubscribe" instructions provided on any marketing e-mail you receive from this site.

Finally, the DAN sites covered by this Privacy Policy shall not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing user with an opportunity to opt out of these unrelated uses.
