PRIVACY

Your use of the Website, and any information you provide to us while using the Website, is subject to our Privacy Policy. By using the Website, you consent to the use of your information as we outline in our Privacy Policy. If we connect you with a third-party service provider through the Website or a phone number displayed on the Website, you accept that:

Our Privacy Policy governs anything you do on the Website and the applicable third party vendor’s privacy policy governs anything you do (e.g. discuss insurance) with such third party vendor.
If we display the telephone number of a third party vendor, transfer your phone call to a third party vendor, or link to a third party vendor’s website, any and all contact with such third party vendors undertaken at your own risk. You, not UHSM™ are responsible for any personal information you provide to another company and we recommend as a general practice that you read a company’s privacy policy prior to sharing any personal information.

Information entered into the Website to request assistance with membership enrollment and voluntary health sharing information shall be shared with only with third party vendors. This information shall not be shared with other companies and shall not be used for general marketing purposes.

Governing Law & Arbitration

This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia without giving effect to any principles that may provide the application of the law of another jurisdiction. Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, including any controversy or claim involving a third party with whom information you have entered into the Website has been shared (but only to the extent such third-party consents to arbitration of such controversy or claim) shall be settled by mediation and arbitration.

As part of the sincerely held religious beliefs of the members, the members and the staff of UHSM believe that the God commands us to make every effort to live at peace and to resolve disputes with each other in private or within the community of believers.  Therefore, the parties agree that if any claim or dispute arising out of, or related to this Website and this Agreement, or any aspect thereof, including claims under federal, state, local statutory or common law, the law of contract or law of tort, that may remain, including a determination whether this provision is valid, shall be settled by mediation.

 If a resolution of the dispute and reconciliation does not result from mediation, the matter shall then be submitted to an independent and objective arbitrator for binding arbitration. The parties agree that the arbitration process will also be conducted with each party to bear their own costs, attorney’s fees, and 50% of the arbitrator’s fee. Each party shall agree to the selection of the arbitrator. If there is an impasse in the selection of the arbitrator, the parties agree that the arbitrator of their choice.

 The parties agree that these methods of dispute resolution shall be the sole remedy for any controversy or claim arising out of this Agreement, and they expressly waive their right to file a lawsuit against one another in any civil court for such disputes, except to enforce a legally binding arbitration decision.  The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and unappealable. The arbitration shall be conducted in Norfolk, Virginia and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered into any court having jurisdiction thereof.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may seek injunctive or other equitable relief to protect our intellectual property rights in any court of competent jurisdiction.

If either UHSM or you want to arbitrate a dispute, UHSM and you each agree to send written notice to the other providing a description of the dispute, previous efforts to resolve the dispute, all supporting documents/information, and the proposed resolution. UHSM and you each agree to make attempts to resolve this dispute within forty-five (45) days of receipt of the notice to arbitrate. Thereafter, either UHSM or you may submit the dispute to formal arbitration.

Both you and UHSM each agree not to pursue arbitration on a consolidated or class-wide basis, including any arbitration involving a third party with whom information you have entered into the Website has been shared. Both you and UHSM each agree that any arbitration will be solely between you and UHSM and/or, where applicable, a third party with whom information you have entered into the Website has been shared (not brought on behalf of or together with another individual’s claim). If for any reason any court or arbitrator hold that this restriction in unconscionable or unenforceable, then this agreement to arbitrate does not apply and the dispute must be brought in court.

TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE DISPUTES ON A CONSOLIDATED OR CLASSWIDE BASIS; THAT IS, TO EITHER JOIN A CLAIM WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY, OR ASSERT A CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF ANYONE ELSE IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION, OR OTHER PROCEEDING.

TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION, OR OTHER PROCEEDING.

If we fail to act with respect to your breach or anyone else’s breach on any occasion, we are not waiving our right to act with respect to future or similar breaches.

Third-Party Links

This Privacy Policy applies to all information that you provide on this Website.

If you choose to obtain certain services through a third-party site, the data collected by the third party is governed by that third party’s privacy policy.

Information Collection Technologies

To better serve our users and third-party vendors and increase the response time of the site, we use various technologies to collect information about our users, such as:

Cookies. Cookies are small bits of code, usually stored on a user’s computer hard drive, which enable a Website to “personalize” itself for each user. We generally use cookies to reduce the time it takes for pages to load on your computer and to assist with customer tracking. Customer tracking (or “click-stream”) data collected by us is used to optimize your experience by learning whether or not you successfully used the site. Additionally, we may capture click-stream data on some of our partner’s websites, limited to the activity involved with the completion of offers listed on our website. This information is used to monitor the performance of our partners. We also may use cookies to deliver targeted advertising (or allow third parties to deliver targeted advertising) on our website and the websites of our affiliates and third parties. Log Files. We also keep track of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP Address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet. Clear Gifs. We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons) that help us better manage content on our site and in our HTML emails by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movement of Web users. Clear gifs are not tied to users’ personally identifiable information. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
