UG may use other companies to mail coupons, manage websites or contact contest winners on our behalf. UG will temporarily provide these companies with only the personal information they need to provide these services. We require these companies to protect this personal information to the same standard UG does and to not use the information for any other purpose.
If a UG brand is sold to another company, personal information provided to that brand may be transferred to the purchaser.
When required by law, and / or public authorities, UG will disclose personal information.

We limit access to information to individuals who have a business need consistent with the reason the information was provided. We keep personal information only for a reasonably needed amount of time.
When we contract with other companies to provide services for UG and then temporarily provide personal information to them for that purpose, we require those companies to protect the information to the same standard UG does.
When we collect or transmit sensitive information such as a credit card number or health information, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption for added protection.
