Cookies

A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard disk, so that the website can remember certain information. Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you.

Currently, two types of cookies are used on this Site. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the site. Persistent cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser even after the browser is closed. The length of time a cookie remains depends on its lifespan.

We use session cookies to:  Carry information across pages of our Site and maintain your preferred language throughout the session. This cookie will be initiated each time you affirm your age on our Site.

We use persistent cookies to:  Generate anonymous, aggregated statistics about the visitors to this Site by using Google Analytics. These statistics help us understand how users navigate the Site and help us improve the structure of our Site. These statistics include for example: most popular and least popular pages visited, and amount of time visitors stay on the site. These cookies expire within two years after you leave the Site. Google offers instructions to opt out of tracking by Google Analytics across all websites at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Note that most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. However, you have the ability to disable cookies if you wish, generally through changing the internet software browsing settings. It may also be possible to change the settings to enable acceptance of specific cookies. Please refer to the help section on your browser. If cookies are disabled you will be unable to access our Site.

Pixel Tags

We and our service providers may also use so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”) in connection with some Site pages and HTML-formatted e-mail messages to, among other things, compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1×1), that is ordinarily not visible to Site visitors and may be associated with Cookies on the visitors’ hard drives. When used in HTML-formatted e-mail messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether and when the e-mail has been opened.

Your Information and Opting-Out

If you do not want to receive further communications from UDI, please send a written request to the postal or e-mail address set out in this Privacy Policy or follow the opt-out instructions in the e-mail you receive from us. Please specify the means of communication from which you would like to opt-out. Otherwise, you may not get communications you would otherwise expect to receive from us.

Access to and Amendment of Information

You can ask to review and correct the Personal Information that we maintain about you by sending a written request to United Distributors, Inc., 5500 United Drive SE, Smyrna, GA 30082, Attn: Director of Information Technology – Website.

External Links

This Site may include links to other websites whose privacy policies we do not control. Once you leave our servers (you can usually tell where you are by checking the URL in the location bar on your browser), use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting (unless otherwise stated). That policy may differ from ours. If you can’t find the privacy policy of any of these sites via a link from the site’s homepage, you should contact the site directly for more information.

Information Storage and Security

This Site and all information that you submit through this Site is collected, stored, and processed in the United States. We use reasonable physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized or inappropriate access. However, regardless of the effectiveness of our security measures, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. We ask that you do your part by, at a minimum, keeping any computer passwords you use to access the Internet or this Site strictly confidential.
