b. Identification Tools
USWDH may use automated Identification Tools like cookies and Google Analytics. Each of these Identification Tools work differently, however, they all collect information related to the website you came to USWDH from, a User’s operating system, browser type, where Users go on USWDH’s website, length of time on USWDH’s website, and where a User goes after visiting USWDH’s website. In addition, Identification Tools may keep Users logged into USWDH’s system. From time-to-time, USWDH may use Identification Tools that will be used to serve advertising and other information to Users after they visit USWDH’s website. Because the technologies underlying Identification Tools differ, Users may, or may not, be able to choose not to provide information to them.
c. Support Information
When Users contact USWDH for support for their services they will be asked to match certain information that is in their Registration Information. This information will be used to identify them personally. In the course of providing support to Users, USWDH may annotate the Registration Information with information disclosed while providing support (Support Information).

USWDH offers Users the ability to exchange information about its services, and their experiences with these services (Forum Information). Forum Information is publically accessible and may be indexed by search engines and other tools. Users are not required to disclose information that will identify them personally in order to participate in these tools. All Forum Information may be accessed and used by third parties for purposes known and unknown to USWDH.

In addition to providing support to Users, USWDH may disclose Support Information to third party vendors in order to provide the support requested by the User.

Unless necessary to provide support to Users, USWDH will not disclose Support Information containing information that identifies Users individually to these third parties. During a support request, Users may request that USWDH not disclose Support Information to third parties. This request will prevent USWDH from providing support to Users.

USWDH uses technical security measures to prevent the loss, misuse, alternation or unauthorized disclosure of information under our control.

When USWDH asks Users to provide financial information (such as a credit card number) that data is protected using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Electronic communication (for example: email, online chat, or instant messaging) that Users may send USWDH may not be secure unless USWDH advises a User in advance that security measures will be in place prior to transmitting the information. Users should not send confidential information such as financial information, social security numbers or passwords to USWDH through unsecured electronic communication.
