What is Personal Information?
“Personal information” is information that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us. Examples of personal information include your name, address, email address, credit card information, and the information you provide when you make a purchase.
Source and Use of Personal Information
Your local union or its affiliates periodically provide Union Now with personal information including but not limited to your name, e-mail and other contact information to permit Union Now, its affiliated companies and select vendors to communicate to you to offer select merchandise and service opportunities for purchase. Your use of the Union Now web site, and the web sites maintained by its affiliates and vendors, is deemed evidence of your consent to our use of personal information. If you do not wish to receive further communications from Union Now or its vendors regarding merchandise and service offers, please contact us to have you name and contact information removed from future marketing related communications. Your decision to have your name removed from future marketing will not prevent us or our vendors from communicating with you related to purchases you have already committed to.
In addition to the information provided to us about you, Union Now and its vendors collect web site visit information automatically regarding your use of the site.
