Information We Collect
Information We Keep Private
We only give personal information to third parties when it is necessary to provide our services, such as when we partner with a payment processor or escrow provider to facilitate a transaction.
We reserve the right to disclose personal information when we believe doing so is necessary to comply with the law or law enforcement, to prevent fraud or abuse, or to protect our rights.

Umergence permits users to communicate with companies and other users posting information on the Site. We may read, collect and analyze information transmitted between users for regulatory compliance and marketing purposes.

Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if such other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail ("Notice"). Any notices to Umergence LLC, Umergence Marketplace LLC, or Umergence Holdings LLC are to be sent to 1224 Mill Street, Building B, East Berlin, CT 06023. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Umergence may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Umergence must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any.
YOU AND UMERGENCE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Umergence agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
If your information changes, or if you no longer desire to use our Services, you may correct, update, amend, or suspend information by logging onto your account and going to the settings section of the appropriate area where your Content is displayed. You may also email our admin team at Umergence and we will respond to your request within 30 days.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is in the system or as required by regulators or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements, which may be indefinitely.
