Free World U is the sole owner of the information collected on the Free World U
During registration a user gives contact information including the username, password,
name and email address. We use this information to contact the user about services
on our site for which he has expressed interest.
We request information from donors such as name, email, and shipping address and
financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). This information
is used to provide accurate record keeping. If there is a question, the information
is used to contact the user.
We store information that we collect through cookies and log files to create a profile
of our users. We do not share your profile with other third parties.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about
the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information
while on our site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For the
session ID cookie, once users close the browser, the cookie simply terminates. A
persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the user's hard drive for an extended
period of time. Persistent cookies can be removed by following Internet browser
help file directions.
By setting a cookie on our site, users would not have to log in a password more
than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If users reject the cookie, they
may still use our site.
Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol
(IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages,
platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer
the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information
for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable
We send all new members a welcoming email to verify password and username. Established
members will occasionally receive information on products, services, and a newsletter.
Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive
these types of communications.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information
such as name and email address. Out of respect for our users privacy we provide
a way to opt-out of these communications.
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement.
For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send
users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though
they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not promotional
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and in
regards to issues relating to their account we reply via email or phone, in accordance
with the users wishes.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal
information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action
is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal
process served on our Web site.
Third Party Intermediaries
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing
company to bill users for donations. These companies do not retain, share, store
or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
In the event Free World U goes through a transition, such as a merger, being acquired
by another organization, or selling a portion of its assets, users' personal information
will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications
may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to unsubscribe in the
subject line in the email or email us at email@example.com.
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation
in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether
or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes
contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information
such as zip code. Anonymous survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring
or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. Users' personally identifiable
information is not shared with third parties unless we give prior notice and choice.
Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys or contests, they may
not use users' personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
Chat Rooms, Message Boards, and Public Forums
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information
online - for example on message boards, through e-mail, or in chat areas - that
information can be collected and used by others. In short, by posting personal information
online that is publicly accessible, you may receive unsolicited messages from other
parties in return.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users
submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both
online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information such
as credit card number, that information is encrypted and is protected with the best
encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order
form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft
Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do
everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users'
information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in
our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are
granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected
screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their
password to re-gain access to user information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept
up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any
time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the
importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our users' information
is protected. Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information
are in a secure environment, in a locked facility. If users have any questions about
the security at our Web site, users can send an email to
