Information last updated on August 23, 2018.
We believe that our visitors’ privacy is a top priority, which is why we strive to do everything we can to respect the trust our visitors have on our site.
1. Information We Collect
From your use of our website, we gather information such as your approximate location, age range, gender, interests, browser type, service provider, device category, and mobile device information. This information cannot identify individual users. Your activity on our website also enables us to view how you interact with our site.
Your personal information, such as your first and last name, social media accounts, date of birth, email address, and mailing address, is only collected when voluntarily submitted by you through a form, in an email message, or through a Sweepstake. For example, some personal information, such as your name, date of birth, and email address, may be collected from you when completing an application form to join our team. Please note that any information you submit when purchasing a product from our store is not viewable to us; this information is collected by Spreadshirt, the company that produces and delivers our products.
2. How We Use Information Collected
We reserve the right to use and disclose any information we receive from you as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of our site, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a matter of public safety.
3. Children’s Privacy Notice
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children who visit our website, and we recognize the need to provide further privacy protection for them. This Children’s Privacy Notice is designed to disclose the information that may be collected from a child’s use of our site and how such information may be used. Under our terms, only those under the age of 13 are categorized as “children.”
Limited personal information may be collected from a child’s use of our website. Personal information, such as first and last names and email addresses may be gathered when sending an email to us and when submitting select forms. A child’s date of birth may only be collected if they choose to disclose it or when submitting an application form to contribute to our website, which should not be available to children (we require applicants to be at least 15 years of age to contribute to our site).
How Information is Used
We use names and email addresses submitted by a child in order to respond to a child’s request, if necessary. Any personal information submitted by a child to us will never be sold, transferred, or disclosed to third parties.
While we strive to protect any information submitted by a child, we cannot moderate all content on our website. It is strongly suggested that children do not release any information in a form or in a comment that may be seen by our community without parental or guardian approval. We advise that a parent or guardian monitor their child’s Internet use to prevent them from disclosing private information.
World of Universal shall not be held accountable if a child publicly discloses personal information to us or our community.
We take great care in handling any personal and private information and never share such information with third parties. Most information that we collect or that you submit to us through a form or in an email is stored in a secure environment that uses HTTPS connection. This means that all communications between your browser and the website in which such data is saved are encrypted.
In the case that any information is released by unauthorized sources because of a hack or vulnerability, World of Universal shall not be held accountable.
A cookie is a piece of data sent to a visitor’s hard drive or another Internet-connected device to identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser.
7. Links to Other Websites
Occasionally, we may provide links to websites that are not operated by us. Websites not under the address worldofuniversal.com (e.g. facebook.com, instagram.com, or youtube.com) may follow different policies and practices than we do. The World of Universal Store is the only exclusion to this. Although links from our store may be displayed under the worldofuniversal.com address, it follows the policies and practices of spreadshirt.com. World of Universal is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites and any information you submit to those sites. Your visit to a website not under our website address is your own risk; therefore, we are not to be held accountable for your safety on such other sites. If you visit a website under a different website address, we strongly encourage you to review their policies and practices as well as their reputation before continuing on or submitting information.
