7) Do Not Track Disclosures

Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit. Note, however, there is no industry consensus as to what site and application operators should do with regard to these signals. Accordingly, unless and until the law is interpreted to require us to do so, we do not monitor or take any specific technical measures to respond to ‘Do Not Track’ settings in your internet browser. (For more information on “Do Not Track,” visit )

8) Email Opt-Out

The email messages UNIVERSALPREQUAL sends you are, service-related messages for members (such as transactional messages or legal notices).

If you desire that we stop e-mail communication with you and wish to close your account, please contact .

9) Risk of Security Breaches

While we believe and intend that our information security practices reflect good practice, there is no such thing as perfect information security. As such, users assume the risk of security breaches and all consequences resulting from them. In furtherance of the foregoing, users must safeguard their credentials. We assume no liability for any unauthorized access by a third party to any information or database maintained by or for us or with respect to the services which we provide.

This can include your IP address, browser information (including referrers), device information (such as iOS IDFA, IDFV for limited non-advertising purposes, Android AAID, and, when enabled by you, location information provided by your device).

We obtain location information you provide in your profile or your IP address. With your consent, we may also determine location by using other information from your device, such as precise location information from GPS or information about wireless networks or cell towers near your mobile device. We use and store information about your location to provide features and to improve and customize the Services, for example, for UNIVERSALPREQUAL’s internal analytics and performance monitoring; localization, regional requirements, and policies for the Services.

If you have consented to share your precise device location details but would no longer like to continue sharing that information with us, you may revoke your consent to the sharing of that information through the settings on the Apps or on your mobile device. Certain non-precise location services, such as for security and localized policies based on your IP address or submitted address, are critical for the Site to function. We will only share your geolocation details with third parties (like our payments, or, to the extent applicable, advertising providers) in order to provide you with the Services.

Cookie Policy - Introduction and Service Description

As described above in our Privacy Policy, we use cookies and other technologies to ensure everyone who uses UNIVERSALPREQUAL has the best possible experience. Cookies also help us keep your account safe. By continuing to visit or use our services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this policy.

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables UNIVERSALPREQUAL features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to UNIVERSALPREQUAL and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on UNIVERSALPREQUAL and help us serve relevant ads to you.

We use cookies on our sites and mobile applications. Any browser visiting these sites will receive cookies from us. We also place cookies in your browser when you visit non-UNIVERSALPREQUAL sites that host our plugins or tags.

We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to UNIVERSALPREQUAL or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by UNIVERSALPREQUAL when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit UNIVERSALPREQUAL, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with UNIVERSALPREQUAL faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the UNIVERSALPREQUAL sites, and bring customized features to you through UNIVERSALPREQUAL plugins.

Do Not Track (DNT) is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. UNIVERSALPREQUAL does not generally respond to “do not track” signals. For more information about DNT, please see our Privacy Policy above.

Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you. Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third party ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. Ads served by UNIVERSALPREQUAL may also set third party cookies.

If you are logged in on or another Service that references this Cookie Policy or browsing a third party partner site of UNIVERSALPREQUAL and one of our cookies on your device identifies you, your usage (such as your browsing behavior) and log data (such as your IP address), will be associated by us with your account as noted in this Privacy Policy. We also use aggregate data from third parties and data from your profile and UNIVERSALPREQUAL activity.

If you are a UNIVERSALPREQUAL member but logged out of your account on a browser, UNIVERSALPREQUAL may still continue to log your interaction with our services on that browser for up to 30 days in order to generate usage analytics for our services, which analytics we may share in aggregate form with our advertising customers.

Unless you clear these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:

  • provide more relevant, interest-based advertising
  • provide aggregate reports of ads activity to advertisers and websites hosting the ads
  • help website and app owners understand how visitors engage with their sites or apps
  • detect and defend against fraud and other risks to protect users and partners
  • improve our products

For further information regarding our use of cookies and similar technologies for advertising purposes, and the controls available to Members and Guests, please see our Privacy Policy.

Please note that the names of cookies, pixels and other technologies may change over time. Please also note that companies and other organizations that sponsor pages on UNIVERSALPREQUAL may use cookies, pixels or other technologies on their UNIVERSALPREQUAL pages to learn about your interest in them.
