This document (the “Privacy Policy” or “Policy”) sets out the Privacy Policy for the Union City Filament Corp. website, available at https://ucfilament.com/ (the “Website”).  Before using the Website, please read this Policy carefully.

Unless otherwise agreed by Union City Filament Corp. in writing, by using the Website, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use found at ucfilament.com, into which this Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference. If you do not want to agree to this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use, you must not access or use the Website.

  1. Personally-identifiable Information You Choose to Provide.
    You do not have to provide personally-identifiable information to access or use the Website. However, to take full advantage of the Website, you may choose to furnish us with personally-identifiable information through the Website. For example, if you contact us through the website “Contact us” form, you will be asked to provide your contact information (such as name, email address, and phone numbers). We will only collect such information through the Website when you provide it to us voluntarily.
  2. Website Use Information.
    Our Website may utilize technologies including “cookies” and web server logs to collect information about how our Website is used. Cookies are text files placed on your hard disk by our web server to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your email address or other personally-identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us. However, once you choose to provide the personal information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.

Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed and time spent at our Website, and the other websites visited just before and just after our Website.

We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information (i.e. generic information that does not identify you personally) when you visit any of the web pages on our Website, such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

The Website server may also collect your internet protocol (IP) address information. Your IP address is an identifying number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider (ISP). This number is identified and logged in our and/or our service providers’ server log or similar files whenever you visit the website, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) that you visited.

We may use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about your use of the Website. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this Website, what pages they visit and features they use, and what other website they visited before coming to this Website. We may use the information we get from Google Analytics to assess the use of and improve our Website. Our use of Google Analytics includes use of Advertising Features, which collects data about traffic to the Website through Google advertising cookies and identifiers.  Information about the cookies used by Google can be found at https://policies.google.com/technologies/types


  1. How Do We Use the Personally-identifiable Information that You Provide to Us?
    We use personally-identifiable information that you provide to us for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Website, new products and services, and special offers we think you will find valuable. We may use your personally-identifiable information, alone or in combination with your IP address and other automatically-collected information, for purposes of protecting the security and proper functioning of the Website, fraud detection and prevention, and similar purposes.  You agree to our use of your information for such purposes.

If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.

We will use the personally-identifiable information you provide on the Website for the purpose(s) for which you have provided such information, which may include:

  • Responding to Your Inquiries. We may use your personal information to respond to your inquiries to Union City Filament Corp.
  • Communicating with You About Our Products and Services. We may use your personally-identifiable information to send you information about specials, new products and services, and other items that may be of interest to you.
  • Sending Administrative Emails. From time to time, we may use your personally identifiable information to send you administrative emails regarding the Website, changes to the Terms of Use or this Privacy Policy, etc.
  • Any other purpose for which you provide such information and any other purpose with your consent.
  1. How We Share Your Personally-identifiable Information.
    We will not share the personally-identifiable information you provide to us with third parties without your consent except: (a) as may be required by law or as we think necessary to protect us or others from injury (e.g., in response to a court order or subpoena, in response to a law enforcement agency request or when we believe that someone is causing -or about to cause- injury to or interference with the rights or property of another); (b) with other persons or companies with whom we contract to carry out our Website operations or our business activities (for example, third parties who assist us with web analytics or fraud detection services); and/or (c) with our affiliated companies, in accordance with this Policy.

If we do share your personal information with a non-affiliated company, to the extent practical, we request that they protect such information in a manner that is consistent with this Policy. Such third-party companies and their websites are not under our control, however, so we cannot guarantee how these non-affiliated companies will use your personal information.

  1. Use and Disclosure of Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
    We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our Website and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze how our Website is used, as well as to offer you products, programs or services. Sometimes we share aggregate information with others, including affiliated companies and non-affiliated companies.

We use your IP address, and the IP addresses of all users, to calculate usage levels on the Website, to help diagnose problems with the Website servers, and to generally administer the Website. Your IP address is or may be used to help identify you, to track activity within our Website and to gather broad demographic information. We also may use IP addresses to communicate with users and, if necessary, to block access by users who fail to comply with our Terms of Use.  As noted above, we (or our third-party service providers) may use your IP address and other automatically-collected information, alone or in combination with personally-identifiable information that you provide to us, to detect suspected fraudulent transactions or other improper use of the Website and to take appropriate steps to address such actions.
