Privacy Policy

The UE Local 170 web site collects no personally identifying information about individuals except when specifically and knowingly provided by such individuals.

The UE Local 170 website does not normally collect names and/or personal information which could be compiled into a list in any form. The one exception to this policy occurs when, in the course of a UE struggle, we ask visitors to send e-mail on workers’ behalf to a third party or parties (usually an employer and/or a transnational corporate owner) and forward a courtesy copy (“cc:”) to a UE e-mail address. We may compile these addresses into a list to ask for additional support. Under no circumstances, however, will this information be distributed outside of the UE, nor used for any purpose other than seeking additional support in a struggle for justice.

We have established two subscriber-managed national email lists (one for members and another for the general public). These lists are kept in a secure location and are not used for any other purpose than the “action alerts” they were designed to be. The will not be shared with anyone.

Personally identifying information provided by a user will not be transferred to any other party unless otherwise stated at the time of collection. If a user has requested contact by, or information from, UE, he or she will contacted only by a UE representative by mail, phone, electronic mail or in person as is consistent with their request. No third parties will receive any information about the user.

More generally, our service provider’s web serving software collects routine information about where visitors are coming from on the internet, including the domain name from which you are browsing, but this does not include any personally identifying information. This is a standard practice for all web sites.

UE web users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, e-mail address) on the internet there is always the unlikely possibility that, unknown to us, information could be illegitimately collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties. However, please remember that privacy violations can occur with any form of electronic communication on the internet and these issues are not in any way specific to the UE web.

Users can send e-mail with questions or comments about our website to or contact us at 304.347.4396.
