Amazon Payments processes all of the transactions on uStartups. No one sees your credit card information besides Amazon, not even us.
We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us.
We will send you email relating to your personal transactions. We will keep these emails to a minimum.
You will also receive certain email notifications (forwarded messages, etc.), for which you may opt-out.
We may send you service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so.
Project creators receive the email addresses of their backers if, and only if, the project is successfully funded.
Technology / Security
uStartups may obtain IP addresses from users. We will use this information to monitor and prevent fraud, diagnose problems, and (anonymously) estimate demographic information.
We use a variety of security measures, including encryption and authentication tools, to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information. Your personal information is stored behind firewalls and is only accessible by a limited number of people who are required to keep the information confidential.
When you place orders we use a secure server. To the extent you select the secure server method and your browser supports such functionality, all credit card information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
Regardless of these efforts by us, no data transmission over the public Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose in public areas becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by other users. You should exercise caution before disclosing your personal information via these public venues.
By entering into our User Agreement, uStartups Project Creators agree to not abuse other users' personal information. Abuse is defined as using personal information for any purpose other than those explicitly specified in the Project Creator’s Project, or is not related to fulfilling delivery of a product or service explicitly specified in the Project Creator’s Project.
uStartups Project Creators never receive users' credit card information.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as U.S. Copyright Law).
To modify or delete any or all of the personal information you have provided to us, please log in and update your profile.
