This privacy statement is applicable to the UMFM website. By using this site, you agree to the terms and conditions below.
UMFM respects the privacy of its Internet users and will protect that privacy as vigorously as possible.
UMFM does not collect information that personally identifies individuals except when individuals provide such specific information on a voluntary basis. In all such cases, UMFM will collect only information that is voluntarily provided by the user and undertakes that such information will be kept strictly confidential. Individual information provided to UMFM to gain access to any feature of our website will not be sold or made available to a third party. The only exception for disclosing user information is when required by law or when user is suspected of illegally interfering with our systems, files and copyrights. Adhering to the latest laws, UMFM does not want or keep personal information of readers under thirteen years of age.
UMFM reserves the right, however, to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics, in order to measure interest in and use of the various sections of its sites so as to improve design and navigation and to gather marketing information. Only aggregated data from these analyses, not individual data, will be used for this purpose.
If you do not want a cookie placed on your computer by UMFM, you may disable cookies altogether by modifying the Preferences section of your browser. Note that it is possible that some aspects of UMFM may be unavailable to you if you choose this option.
If you have no problem accepting cookies, but wish to be informed of their appearance, you may turn on a warning prompt by modifying the cookie warning section.
Users should be aware that when you are on UMFM, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from the UMFM pages that take you outside our service.
For example, if you “click” on a related links site, the “click” takes you off our site. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use UMFM logo as part of a co-operative or co-branding agreement.
These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information. UMFM’s policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond UMFM’s control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
When you send us e‑mail, we will use your name and e‑mail address only to respond to the concerns you write to us with. Your e‑mail may be shared with appropriate people within UMFM to help us respond to your concerns and improve our online services. If you choose to e‑mail a letter to the editor for publication, or submit a question to our advice column, we may run your message and name in our site. We will not publish your e‑mail address unless given explicit permission.
