Notice To European Union Users
UniversalMed Supply’s operations are located primarily in the United States. If you provide information to us, the information will be transferred out of the European Union (EU) and sent to the United States. (The adequacy decision on the EU-US Privacy became operational on August 1, 2016. This framework protects the fundamental rights of anyone in the EU whose personal data is transferred to the United States for commercial purposes. It allows the free transfer of data to companies that are certified in the US under the Privacy Shield.) By providing personal information to us, you are consenting to its storage and use as described in this Policy.
UniversalMed Supply takes precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (e.g. credit card information), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the webpage.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers and servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. This is all done to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure or modification of the user’s personal information under our control.
The company also uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for authentication and private communications to build users’ trust and confidence in the internet and website use by providing simple and secure access and communication of credit card and personal information
Acceptance of Terms
If you answered “yes” to the question Does your website comply with the General Data Protection Regulation
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) places obligations with respect to processing of personal information of California consumers (“Personal Information”) primarily on “businesses” as defined under the act. A “business” as defined under the CCPA is a business that operates in California and determines the purposes and means of processing of Personal Information.
A “service provider” under the CCPA is an entity that processes Personal Information on behalf of a business. Service providers have very limited obligations under the CCPA, primarily to process Personal Information on behalf of a business in strict adherence to a written contract with, and on instructions from, such business.
UniversalMed Supply determines the purposes and means of processing of California consumers’ personal information solely with respect to the information UniversalMed Supply collects its customers, and is obligated as a “business” under the CCPA solely with respect to personal information it collects from natural persons that are California residents and that supply such information as employees in the initiation or administration of services or orders.
With respect to personal information of UniversalMed Supply’ customers, UniversalMed Supply processes such information as a service provider for such services or orders. Such services or orders determine the purposes and means of processing of any personal information collected from customers, constitute the “businesses” under the CCPA with respect to such personal information and consequently, with respect to such information, the privacy policies that govern.
THE FOLLOWING RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO PERSONAL INFORMATION ARE LIMITED TO THE PERSONAL INFORMATION OF NATURAL PERSONS THAT ARE CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS AND THAT SUPPLY PERSONAL INFORMATION TO UNIVERSALMED SUPPLY IN THE COURSE OF INITIATING OR ADMINISTERING SERVICES OR ORDERS OF CUSTOMERS OF UNIVERSALMED SUPPLY.
If you are a California resident who supplied Personal Information to UniversalMed Supply in the course of employment by, or agency of, a service provider that is a customer of UniversalMed Supply, you have the right to (a) know what categories of Personal Information UniversalMed Supply has collected during the preceding 12 months, including the categories of sources from which that information was collected, the business or commercial purpose for which it was collected, and the categories of third-parties with whom the information was shared (see Section 1 below); (a) request to know what Personal Information UniversalMed Supply has collected, used, disclosed, and sold about you during the preceding 12 months (see Section 2 below); (c) subject to important limitations, request that UniversalMed Supply delete your Personal Information (see Section 3 below); and (d) to the extent UniversalMed Supply sells any Personal Information, to opt-out of the sale of your Personal Information to third-parties. These rights, which are discussed more fully below, are subject to some important exceptions, which are intended, among other things, to protect the integrity and privacy of your Personal Information. You have the right not to be discriminated against for exercising your CCPA rights. You also have the right to designate an authorized agent to exercise your CCPA rights on your behalf.
If you need information on how to exercise your CCPA rights in an alternative, accessible format due to a disability, please email UniversalMed Supply at with your name and contact information to email@example.com.

Requests to Delete your Personal Information
You have the right to request that UniversalMed Supply delete your Personal Information, subject to certain exceptions such as our need to comply with legal obligations, fulfill orders, complete transactions, etc. If you are a California resident who supplied Personal Information to UniversalMed Supply in the course of employment by, or agency of, a service provider that is a customer of UniversalMed Supply, and wish to request deletion of your Personal Information, please contact UniversalMed Supply at email@example.com and indicate that you wish for UniversalMed Supply to delete your Personal Information and provide the identifying information requested. All deletion requests are subject to verification of your identity. If UniversalMed Supply verifies your request, we will also instruct our service providers (if any) to delete your Personal Information from their records, subject to applicable legal requirements.
No Sale of Personal Information
UniversalMed Supply does not sell any Personal Information to third-parties. Please note that UniversalMed Supply may still share your Personal Information with service providers and other entities for business purposes consistent with the CCPA.
In order to verify requests made pursuant to the CCPA, UniversalMed Supply may require at least two (2) pieces of identifying information that match information maintained by us. In some cases, UniversalMed Supply may require additional identifying information and a signed declaration attesting to your identity. In situations where UniversalMed Supply receives a request from an authorized agent on your behalf, it may require written proof that the agent is, in fact, authorized to act on your behalf and may take additional steps to verify your identity and the authorized agent’s identity.
In certain circumstances, UniversalMed Supply may decline a request to exercise the Right to Know or Right to Delete described above, particularly where UniversalMed Supply is unable to verify your identity. If UniversalMed Supply is unable to comply with all or a portion of your request, it will explain the reasons for declining to comply with the request.
