    • Information about your tablet, smartphone, and or computer; and about your visits and utilization of our website including, but not limited to: your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views and website navigation paths;
    • Information that you provide to us when using our website, or that is generated in the course of the use of those services (including the timing, frequency and pattern of service use);

    This information is used to improve site functionality and server performance. Information is never disclosed to third parties. However, we may disclose your information:

    • in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights;
    • to any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.

  5. Cookies. Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

    We use both session and persistent cookies on our website. Blocking or deleting cookies will have a negative impact on the site usage by you. If cookies are deleted, the server will re-collect data and start the cookie session again.

  6. Security. To prevent unauthorized hijacking of database information, multiple security measures are in place, including aliasing the images, instead of granting direct access. Access to certain areas of this website is restricted and strictly prohibited. UCMugshots.com reserves the right to restrict access to certain areas of this website, or at our discretion, this entire website.

    • MySQL. Our site uses MySQL, an open-source relational database management system (RDMS), to power the site. Security measures are in place to prevent unauthorized SQL injections, or brute-force attacks.

    • SSL. Industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is installed on the site. This security measure encrypts information and data being transfered between you and our server; keeping it private and integral. It significantly reduces the risk of your data being hijacked unlawfully by malicious third parties. The site is encrypted and authenticated using a strong protocol (TLS 1.2), a strong key exchange (ECDHE_RSA with P-256), and a strong cipher (AES_256_GCM).

    • DOS/DDoS. A denial-of-service (DoS) attack is an attempt to make a network resource unavailable to its intended users, by disrupting services of a host. A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is where the attack source is more than one, often thousands of, unique IP addresses. Our server imploys firewalls and security measures to prevent such attacks; however, they are considered malicious and are strictly prohibited.

  7. Changes of Modifications. This policy will remain on this page and will updated as needed by the site owner. The last modified date is posted at the top of this policy. No notice will, or shall be required to, be posted on the site advising website visitors and or users that the policy has been amended, updated or otherwise changed. It is the duty of any and all website visitors and or users to read this policy, in full, as it is a legally-binding agreement between you, the website visitor/user, and the website.

  8. Law and Jurisdiction. These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Oregon, and any disputes relating to these Terms will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Oregon.

  9. Transparency. We made every effort to be as transparent with the data hosted on this site. The process of which mugshot data is retreived, formatted, and displayed on our website—as well as the statistics collected from users on the site—is proprietary. Our statistics and reports page includes as much data as possible about what website users are looking at, and viewing.

  10. Contact Us. We can solely be contacted via email. Any questions, comments, or requests can be made at support@ucmugshots.com or on our contact page. Again, as aforementioned, we do not respond to coercive or threatening emails.
