USG collects two types of information about you when you visit our site: personal information (including, by way of example only, your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address) and non-personal, aggregate information (such as information regarding the pages on our site that you have visited and your IP address).
The only personally identifying information we collect and store about you is the information that you choose to provide to us.
We will also gather your personally-identifiable information when you send us an e-mail. We will use this information to respond to your e-mail. We may also use the information to send you notifications about our service.
Business partners and professional visitors requesting access to specialized content areas of this website may be required to provide identifying information.
We may share your personally-identifiable information within USG.
The USG website and our applications may collect non-personally identifiable information during your visit, such as type of browser, operating system, domain name, or IP address. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the web. Web servers — the big computers that "serve" up web pages — automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you visit pages on USG's website, our servers log your IP address. We do not link IP addresses to any personally identifiable information. This means that your session will be logged, but you remain anonymous to us. IP address information is used only to improve the service of the USG site and is then discarded at the end of each session on our site.
USG also collects information through "referrers" and various environmental variables. A "referrer" is information the web browser passes along to USG's web server that references the URL from which you came. "Environmental variables" include, among other things, the domain from which you access the Internet, the time you accessed our website, the type of web browser and operating system or platform used, the Internet address of the website you left to visit USG, the names of the pages you visit while at our website, and the Internet address of the website you then visit. We collect all of this information to allow us to detect broad demographic trends, to provide information tailored to your interests, and to enhance your experience on USG's website and applications. USG may store "referrer" information for a limited period of time prior to deleting this information.
Analytical Tools: USG and our third-party service providers collect information about you, your device, and your use of the website and applications through analytical tracking tools and methods (collectively, “Analytical Tools”). Analytical Tools collect information such as operating system type, IP address, browser type and language, mobile device ID, device hardware type, the website or application visited or used before or after accessing USG’s website, the parts of the website accessed, the length of time spent on a page or using a feature, and access times for a webpage or feature. These Analytical Tools help us analyze how users use the website and our applications, including what features they use, what pages they visit, and what other sites or applications they used prior to or after visiting the website.
To help us improve our website and applications and to ensure that we make every effort to provide you with information and offers that are of interest to you, we may merge your personally-identifiable information with click-stream data and other data we have (including cookies and offline data). We will provide notice of this, as well as an opportunity to opt-out of it, at the time and place of information collection and before data is entered on our system.
We may also develop a non-identifiable profile on you based on the pages within our site that you visit.
This website and our applications may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to read the privacy statements of each and every website that they visit. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected when you visit our website or our applications.
The USG website and our applications are not targeted to children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly request personally identifiable information from any child under the age of 13 without parental consent. When we do receive such information, we delete it as soon as we discover it and do not use it or share it with third parties.

We make every effort to have reasonable security procedures in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control. If you have any questions about the security of our website or our applications, you can send an email to email@example.com.
