What information does UDK collect?

UDK will not sell or disclose your name, email address or other personal information to third parties without your explicit consent, except as specified in this policy.

You may provide us with certain personally identifiable information when you:

  • Register for a UDK account;
  • Order products or gift certificates;
  • Request customer support or send UDK any other communication;
  • Sign up for newsletters, email alerts, and special offers;
  • Enter sweepstakes or contests;

Depending on which services you choose to use, UDK may require additional information, such as a shop name, billing and payment information (including billing address, telephone number, credit card information), a telephone number, and/or a physical postal address. As a shop UDK requires you to set up or use an existing account with Stripe which requires information such as your social security number or tax ID, date of birth, bank account information, credit card information and/or other proof of identification in order to verify your identity and provide this service to you.  UDK may contact individual shop owners to confidentially request more information about their shops or items listed on the site, to ensure compliance with UDK’s rules. 

 

Information collected by Cookies:

UDK uses cookies on the Site to improve the quality of the Site and services to you. A cookie is a small text file on your computer which a website sends to your computer to allow the website to store information which uniquely identifies UDK’s users. UDK's cookies do not collect or store personally identifiable information. Rather, the cookie stores a token which uniquely identifies a particular user at a particular time. That token is then linked to the user information in UDK’s secured databases. You can always delete the cookies and reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to display a message when a cookie is being sent. If you reset your browser, some of the Site features and functionality may not be available to you and you may not be able to take advantage of all the features on the Site.

 

Do Not Track:

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. UDK is committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected on the UDK Site for third party purposes, and that is why UDK provides the opt-out links below. However, UDK does not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.

These links may not represent all opt-out options available or third parties collecting information via the Site. 

 

Information collected by Web Beacons and Log Files:

When you visit the Site, UDK’s servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data" ). This Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type or the domain from which you are visiting, and any social media sharing you may engage in. For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider the IP address will be different every time you log on. UDK uses Log Data to monitor the use of the Site and the UDK Service, and for the Site's technical administration. UDK does not associate your IP address with any other personally identifiable information to identify you personally, except as required to enforce this Privacy Policy and the Terms and Conditions for the Site or as necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of UDK, its employees, customers, or other users.

 

Information collected through Product Reviews:

You may choose to submit a product review. If you post a review, UDK may ask for certain information to validate your review such as email address, photo, and your city/state/country of residence. If you submit a review, UDK may publish your geographic location or other anonymous information but your email address will be kept private. Additionally, any personally identifiable information that you submit as part of the review can be read or used by other visitors to the Site. UDK is not responsible for any personally identifiable information that you choose to submit as part of your review.  UDK believes you can post a helpful review without disclosing any personal information.
