The Information Collected

Information Provided by You

When you create an Account (including login with other third party accounts), provide feedback or contact us via e-mail, or participate in surveys, you may be required to provide information such as User Names, Password or Email Address.

It is your choice whether to send this personal information to us. Yet in some cases if the information provided is incomplete or inaccurate we may not being able to offer Services accordingly.

In addition, when you use UCWeb Services, UCWeb will have access to information you post to UCWeb including, but not limited to, threads and comments you post in forums.

Cookies etc. are computer files that are saved to your device and which may store information about you, your device, and your browser and that may be used to transmit that information to us. For example, cookies are used to identify your device and record the visit so that the UCWeb Services can allow you access to your account without requiring you to re-enter the information.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to third party software. UCWeb shall not be responsible for any third party software.

Exception: the information NOT collected by UCWeb

Websites may require your information when you are browsing. For example when you visit online map or search engine, it may requests your location information. When you are trying to upload attachment to your mailbox, it may request to read your files. Your phone may pop-up as UC Browser requests your permission, but the information was NEVER received by UCWeb but sent to the website you visited directly.

It will be up to you to decide to give such permission or not. Yet please understand that if you deny such permissions, certain functions may be disabled. For example if you do not allow UC Browser to access to your location information, online map will not know where you are and search engine will not be able to provide location based search results; if you do not allow UC Browser to read your files, you may not upload attachments to your mailbox. You can always manage the permissions via your phone setting.
