Why ULM Needs This Information

ULM utilizes the personal information collected for the following purposes: contests, promotions, surveys, focus groups and forwarding content.

First and last names will be used to personalize any messages ULM send to users.

Date of birth will help us identify our web users strictly for internal survey purposes (ex. What percentage of our web users are 18-34 years old). For more information on how ULM handle users who are minors, please review the Children's Policy section.

Gender (M/F) will be used strictly for internal survey purposes.

The email address will be used to confirm users' registration to our website. After users submit their information during registration, a confirmation email is sent to the email address supplied. Users will NOT be registered to Urbanlatino.com until they follow the link in the confirmation email. This prevents any automatic attempts to register users to our website without their consent.

Furthermore, users will receive via email newsletter updates, event information, and a promotion subscription offer to Urban Latino magazine if they decide to opt-in to those services during registration or when they edit their account information. Please review our Opt-Out Policy for more information.

Zip code will be used for internal survey purposes and to notify users via email or cellphone text message about ULM sponsored events that are occurring near their area. Users will only receive such notifications if they opted-in to that service. Please review our Opt-Out Policy for more information.

Cellphone numbers and providers will only be collected if users opt-in to receive Cellphone Text Message Notifications. Users who opt-in during registration or editing their account information will receive text message notifications of major events sponsored by or affliated with ULM.

Opt-Out Policy

During the registration process or editing account information, users can opt-in to receive email notifications for newsletters, events, and subscription to the Urban Latino magazine. Users can also opt-in to receive cellphone text messages for upcoming events.

These notifications will be personalized based on the information provided during registration. Users can decide to opt-out of receiving such notices by logging in to Urbanlatino.com, accessing the "Edit Account" option, and checking off the option(s) to receive notifications.

Regardless of whether users opt-in or opt-out of receiving email updates, they may still receive an email from Urbanlatino.com if there is a serious technical issue involving the website (such as site maintenance or login problems).

Children's Policy

ULM understands the importance of protecting the privacy of minors. ULM provide a notification at the registration page that informs users that they either must be 13 years or older, or have parental consent before they can register to our site. Regardless of the age of our registered users, ULM will never give any information that is personally identifiable to third-parties.

Sharing of Personal Information to Third-Parties

ULM collects information to enhance the users' visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. ULM respects the privacy of our users and does not share personal information with anyone. ULM may provide third-parties with results of our internal survey of Urbanlatino.com web users, but those results will not contain any personal information.

Changes to this Policy

ULM reserves the right to change this policy at any time. Please check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of our site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes. Information collected prior to the time any change is posted will be used according to the rules and laws that applied at the time the information was collected.

IP Address

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are on-line. Servers, the computers that deliver web pages to users, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. ULM collects IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our sponsors and advertisers, and to track the use of our Site. When visitors request information from this Site, our servers record IP addresses. ULM does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a visitor remains anonymous to us. However, ULM reserves the right to use IP addresses to identify a visitor only when ULM feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with policies or to protect our service or customers, this Site, or others.
