TERMS AND CONDITIONS
This Policy applies only to information received and collected by WBCUtah through this website.
WBCUtah respects the privacy of our website visitors, and we are committed to protecting our visitors’ personal information. We want you to understand how and why we collect, use, and disclose the information we obtain about you from this website.
PERSONAL INFORMATION WBCUtah COLLECTS ONLINE
Through this website, we may collect two types of information: non-personal information and personal information. Personal information is information that identifies or can be readily associated with a particular individual.
At times, WBCUtah may ask you to provide a limited amount of personal information that could identify you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number and/or policy information. This information is collected only when you voluntarily provide it. If you encounter a screen or page that requests information you do not want to share with us, do not enter the information and do not proceed with that screen or page.
WBCUtah CLIENT DISCLAIMER & NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT: Any client information disclosed will be held in strict confidence. (WBCUtah and SBA will not provide your personal information to commercial entities.) By becoming a WBCUtah client, you authorize SBA to furnish relevant information to the assigned management counselor(s) which may include contractors of the WBCUtah.
Clients understand that the counselor(s) agrees not to: 1) recommend goods or services from sources in which he/she has an interest, and 2) accept fees or commissions developing from this counseling relationship. In consideration of the counselor(s) furnishing management or technical assistance, clients waive all claims against SBA personnel, and that of its Resource Partners and host organizations, arising from this assistance.
WBCUtah CLIENT USE OF INFORMATION
Information provided by individuals and businesses seeking technical assistance services from the WBCUtah, Small Business Administration (SBA), or an SBA Resource Partner. The information is collected to help SBA’s continuing improvement of business counseling programs, to ensure effective oversight and management of entrepreneurial development programs and grants, and to meet Congressional and Executive Branch reporting requirements.
HOW WBCUtah USES THE PERSONAL INFORMATION IT COLLECTS
We may use personally identifiable information from you for a limited number of purposes, including providing you with services, products or information, and/or providing you with other information, opportunities, or products that may be of interest to you. We may also use the information we collect to respond to emails, provide customer support, and other similar business purposes.
Personal information you provide through this website may be combined with other personal information that we collect or receive about you through other methods, and such combined personal information may be used as described in this Policy.
COLLECTION AND USE OF NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
Non-personal information is information that does not identify an individual and cannot be readily associated with a particular individual.

In other cases, for example, when you use our tools and calculators, we only retain the cookie information and/or information you provide if you request that we do so for your use in subsequent sessions.
CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We utilize physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information and guard against its unauthorized access.
