We may, from time to time, send information to registered users about system changes or new applications that we think may be of interest. Social Security Numbers submitted to us as part of an employment application are transmitted in an encrypted format. This information is not used outside of Union Pacific for any purpose other than that for which it was originally intended.
Aggregate information, or automatically collected non-identifying statistics (such as information about how many visitors log on to our sites, the pages they access, etc.).

Cookies & Tracking Pixels
Occasionally, Union Pacific also collects information related to the effectiveness of our digital advertisements. Specifically, Union Pacific works with third-party companies that use tracking technologies (tracking pixels) on our website in order to serve interest-based ads on our behalf across the internet. These companies may collect information about your activity on our sites and your interaction with our advertising and use this information to determine which ads you see on third-party websites and applications. For more information about this practice and to understand your options including how to opt out of receiving these tailored advertisements, please visit http://www.aboutads.info.
Do Not Track Policy
Do Not Track is a privacy preference that users may set in their web browsers. When a user turns on the Do Not Track signal, the browser sends a message to websites requesting them not to track the user. At this time, we do not respond to Do Not Track browser settings or signals. For information about Do Not Track, please visit: www.allaboutdnt.org.
Registered User Access
Customers who have registered to access secured information and applications agree to abide by the confidentiality guidelines and policies of UP's Website Security Policy.
Links to Other Sites
Union Pacific provides links to its parent company, the Union Pacific Corporation, as well as its subsidiaries. We also link to a number of third-party external sites. The inclusion of any link does not imply UP endorsement of the external site company, its website, or the products and services it promotes or sells. When you leave the Union Pacific site to visit one of these linked sites, the only information transferred to the third party is the fact that you came from UP.com (the "refer address").
Union Pacific is not responsible or liable for the independent privacy policies of these third party sites. You should consult the privacy policies at these sites to determine how your information may be used.
Union Pacific is committed to online data security, and for that reason we take steps to make all information received from you as secure as reasonably possible from unauthorized access and use.
We are committed to protecting your information, but you can do your part. You should create a strong password and protect against unauthorized access to your password and your computer. Union Pacific policy prohibits the sharing of User IDs or passwords. While we try, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you provide to us, and by using our digital properties you acknowledge that you do so at your own risk.

While we do not direct any of the information on our site specifically to children, we are very proud of our History pages and the information they provide for students and railfans alike. We believe that protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important, and for that reason it is our intention to never collect or maintain information from children on our website.

Exercising Your California Access, Deletion, And Do Not Sell Rights
A California Resident may request that we disclose what personal information Union Pacific collects, uses, and discloses about you (the “Right to Know”), and you may have the right to ask us to delete the personal information we collect about you (“Right to Delete”). The Right to Know and Right to Delete may be subject to certain exceptions as set forth in the CCPA. For example,we may deny a Right to Delete request when Union Pacific is required to retain your personal information to comply with our own legal obligations. When exercising your CCPA rights, Union Pacific will notify you of any exceptions or other reasons that require us to deny all or part of your request, unless prohibited from doing so by law.
Union Pacific does not sell your personal information. However, a California resident may still make an opt-out request that Union Pacific not sell your personal information using the process described below.
If your verifiable Request to Know includes a request to receive a copy of the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you in the last 12 months (or a specific subset of your information), we will seek to organize the personal information associated with you in file formats and categories that are easy to understand. We will contact you when the information is available to you.
Making a Right to Know or Right to Delete Request
Right to Know requests may be made up to two (2) times in a 12-month period. We will not charge a fee to process or respond to a verifiable CCPA request. However, we have the right to charge for or decline any unfounded, excessive, or repetitive requests, in such cases we will inform you of our decision and, if applicable, provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Making an Out of Sale of Personal Information Request
Although we do not currently sell, as that term has been defined by the CCPA, your personal information, if you would like to opt-out of any potential sale of your personal information you can do so by submitting a request at CCPA-Request@up.com or calling our toll-free number 1-866-251-9185.
We do not target users younger than age 18 and, therefore, do not knowingly collect or sell personal information of minors younger than 16 years of age without affirmative authorization.
After submitting a request, we will take steps to verify your identity in order for us to properly respond and/or confirm that it is not a fraudulent request. In order to verify your identity, we will request, at a minimum, that you provide your name, email address, phone number, address, and relationship to UP, so that we can seek to match this information with the information existing in our systems. When providing us this information, you represent and affirm that all information provided is true and accurate. If we are unable to verify that the consumer submitting the request is the same individual about whom we have collected personal information, we may contact you for more information, or we may not be able to meet your request.
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable CCPA request related to your personal information. If you are making a CCPA request as the authorized agent of a California consumer, we will ask you also submit reliable proof that you have been authorized in writing by the consumer to act on such consumer’s behalf.
When you make a Right to Know or Right to Delete request, we will typically provide our response within 45 days. We will notify you within that time period and provide an explanation if we need additional time (up to 90 days) to process your request. When you opt-out from the sale of your personal information, we will honor your request as soon as feasible, but no later than 15 days from the date we receive your request.
Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of a Consumer’s Privacy Rights
Union Pacific will not discriminate against you for exercising your CCPA rights, including in terms of the price or services that we offer.
If you have any questions or concerns about Union Pacific’s CCPA Policy that are not requests, Union Pacific will attempt to answer any questions and you may contact us by email at CCPA-Request@up.com.
We may occasionally update this notice. We encourage users to periodically review this policy for the latest information on our privacy practices.
