Collection of Information
Use of Information
USP may use your Personal Information for the following purposes: to process your orders and administer your account; to administer and improve the Site and related services; to create and maintain user profiles based on browsing or purchasing histories; to notify you of our products, services, promotional events or special offers that may be of interest to you; to provide Internet security; to allow third parties to provide you with information about their products, services, promotional events or special offers that may be of interest to you; or to meet any legal requirements. USP may supplement information collected on the Site with data from other sources, but this information will not be available online. If USP is involved in the sale of a substantial portion of its business assets, Anonymous or Personal Information may be among the transferred assets.
USP may work with our business partners who may perform certain functions on our behalf, such as fulfilling orders, sending email messages, managing data, processing credit card payments or providing customer service. These business partners have access to your Personal Information only to the extent necessary to perform these specific functions and may not use it for any other purpose. Other than for the specific purposes set forth in this Policy, we will not disclose your Personal Information unless we obtain your prior consent or are legally required to do so.
USP may use Anonymous Information to update the Site to make it more useful to you and other users. We reserve the right to maintain, update, disclose or otherwise use Anonymous Information, without limitation.
Privacy of Children
USP encourages parents and guardians to be aware of and participate in their children’s online activities. We strictly adhere to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and will not knowingly collect, use or disclose Personal Information from any child under the age of 13 in any manner that violates this law.
When you visit the Site, USP or a third-party advertiser may store or recognize some information on your computer in the form of a “cookie” or similar file that can help us in many ways. For example, cookies allow us to tailor the Site to better match your interests and preferences. With most Internet browsers or other software, you can erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.

If you reject cookies, functionality of the Site may be limited, and you may not be able to take advantage of many of the Site’s features.
The Site may contain links to other sites on the Internet that are owned and operated by third parties. USP is not responsible for the collection or use of your Personal or Anonymous Information at any third party sites.
We have policies and procedures in place to protect the privacy and confidentiality of your Personal Information that we collect and maintain. All Personal Information is stored on our secured servers, behind a firewall at a data center with access to data strictly controlled. USP uses security measures, including: Secure Sockets Layering (SSL) encryption technology for portions of the Site, Netscreen firewall for server hardware security and AS/400 security standards for legacy data. Neither USP nor its affiliates guarantees electronic transactions made through the Site.
Please do not share any online user name or password with anyone, and please update your password at regular intervals. These steps will help to ensure the security of your Personal Information. Any unauthorized use of the Site may result in criminal and/or civil prosecution.
