What information do we collect from you ?
In order to better provide you with our numerous services, we collect two types of information about our users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using our site.
Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on this site, such as registering for a membership, accessing member services, submitting content and/or posting content in discussion forums or other public areas, filling out a survey, or sending us feedback, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, we may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), email address, employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, salary, occupation, employer name, birth date, gender, creditor information, credit history, debt schedule, budget information (assets, expenses and other income) and other personal financial and identifying information necessary to adequately provide competent service. When purchasing a product or service on UCAN's site, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
In addition, for our current clients who have enrolled for our services, our site authenticates online users by verifying and collecting the following nonpublic personal information prior to allowing access to the site:
- Last name
- Last 4 digits of social security number
- E-mail address or client id
