Unity Corporation, Inc. (“Unity”) provides software as a service platforms including but not limited to FrameWork and CheckWork (collectively the “Services”). These Services are available to users directly through websites owned or operated by third parties through which you may register to receive, display, access and download branded versions of the Services (each a “Subscriber Site”, or collectively the “Subscriber Sites”). Unity also provides certain services to end users (“Unity Services”).
Types of Information Collected.
Unity may gather and maintain the following types of information:
Personally Identifiable Information (“PII” also called “Personal Information”) means information that can be used to identify a specific individual, and may include but is not limited to: name, address, email address, phone number, credit card number, debit card number, and other non-public information.
Personal Health Information (“PHI”) means known medical conditions or health characteristics when combined with PII, but does not necessarily include health topics you are interested in, which in the absence of a known medical condition or health characteristic is considered Non-Personal Information.
Non-Personal Information means information collected passively through the use of technology (such as cookies, beacons, and algorithms), as well as information you provide that is not generally traceable back to and used to identify a specific individual, including but not limited to: gender, age, marital status, household income, city and state, when such user provided information is not associated with or linked to PII.
Aggregated Information means combining Non-Personal Information collected from large numbers of users of Unity Services into aggregated statistical data and information.
How Unity Gathers Information.
Unity gathers information from three sources: (i) information you voluntarily submit during your registration and use of the Services, (ii) information gleaned passively through your use of the the Services, and (iii) information from third parties, including Subscriber Sites.
Listed below are some of the areas in which collection of voluntarily provided information may take place:
Registration: In order to use the Services, Unity will ask you to register for the Services on behalf of your Subscriber Site. During this registration process Unity may ask you to provide Personally Identifiable Information, select a screen name and password and ask you to provide Unity with additional Non-Personal Information so that Unity can provide you with a personalized experience. Unity retains your registration data along with your user ID on behalf of your Subscriber Site to provide ease of access to the Services.
Public Areas: If you engage in a Public Area you may add to your profile, ask or answer questions, provide comments, videos, photographs and other content. Please review the section below entitled “Public Areas - Blogs/Social Networking/Message Boards/Interactive Forum” for further details.
Share Feature: You may voluntarily access features that will provide the user's access to a messaging functionality, allowing the user to send an email notification to a friend about a particular Service. In so doing Unity collects your friend's email address, your name and your email address and automatically sends your friend a one-time email describing the Unity Services, referencing your name and email address. Your friend may contact Unity at firstname.lastname@example.org to request deletion of his/her email from the Unity database.
Health Information: In order to use some of the Services, such as Subscriber Sites (e.g. hospitals, health care providers and health plan providers), you may be asked to provide information about your known medical conditions or health characteristics. When you provide this information, in certain circumstances Unity will associate it with Personally Identifiable Information and such information will become “Personal Health Information” (“PHI”).
Customer Support Interactions: You may provide certain Personally Identifiable Information in the course of customer service interactions.
Information Unity collects through your use of the Services:
Unity receives and stores certain types of information as you interact with the Services. For example, like many websites and online services, we use various technologies such as cookies, algorithms, beacons and log files to learn and analyze what content you viewed and searched for, your login information, email address, password, computer and connection information such as browser type, use history, date, time and click stream data from the Service. Unity may also use Server logs to capture certain Non-Personal Information such as the operating system being used and the IP address. This information is generally used to help Unity plan for system enhancements and understand which content and Services are compatible with users’ Web browsing systems. Your IP address is a number assigned by your Internet Service Provider to your computer to identify its location. Unity generally uses the IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and administer the Services. Unity may also use the IP address to communicate with users and Subscribers, possibly ban those users who are not complying with the Unity’s Terms and Conditions of Use. Unity may also use the IP address to assist in delivering geographically targeted content and information.
Information we receive from third parties:
How Unity Uses the Information Collected.

- process registration and log in to service your account;
- provide the Services;
- provide customer support and assistance;
- send communications and administrative emails about the Services;
- provide the ability to contact you and provide you with billing information, when necessary;
- provide the ability to create personal profile areas and view protected content;

Disclosure of Information Unity Collects.
Unity shares the information collected from your use of the branded Services with the Subscriber Site through which you access the Services, but does not otherwise sell, rent, or share your PII or PHI with third parties, except as specifically approved or under the circumstances described below. IF YOU DO NOT WANT UNITY TO USE OR DISCLOSE PII OR PHI COLLECTED ABOUT YOU IN THE WAYS IDENTIFIED IN THIS POLICY, DO NOT USE THE SERVICES.
Non-Personal and Aggregated Information: Unity may share Non-Personal and Aggregated Information about you with third parties. Depending on the circumstances Unity may charge third parties for this aggregated information, or limit third parties' use of the Non-Personal and Aggregated Information.
Personal Information and Personal Health Information may be shared as follows:
Subscriber Sites: The Services are generally made available through Subscriber Sites that license the right to provide access to a branded version of the Services provided by Unity. Unity will share all information gathered through your use of the branded Service, including your PII, PHI and Non-Personal Information and Aggregated Information with the Subscriber Site with which you have chosen to register, access, use or download the branded Services. Unity may retain your registration data along with your user ID to provide ease of access to the Services. Although Unity will retain PII and Aggregated Information collected about users from the branded Services accessed through each Subscriber Site, such information will also be shared with each such Subscriber Site and the Subscriber’s Sites use of such user information is subject to its own privacy policies and practices. Unity does not monitor, control or endorse the information collection or privacy practices of any Subscriber Site. You acknowledge and agree that Unity is not responsible for the legality, accuracy or inappropriate nature of any privacy practice, or use made of your PII, PHI, Non-Personal and Aggregated Information by Subscriber Sites or other third party sites linked to Subscriber Sites.

Public Areas - Blogs/Social Networking/Message Boards/Interactive Forum.
Due to the public nature of the Public Areas, it is important to exercise caution when deciding to reveal PII and PHI in Public Areas. By using Public Areas, you agree that neither Unity, nor your Subscriber Site, is responsible for any information that you disclose or communicate in such Public Areas, and any disclosures you make are at your own responsibility and risk.
Unity and your Subscriber Site may decide to utilize the User Content from Public Areas that you provide, such as but not limited to: Q&A’s, interactions with experts and chat room and message board content, video, photographs, and text. By posting to any Public Area, or by otherwise asking questions and sending comments through the Services, you automatically grant to Unity and your Subscriber Site, a perpetual, world-wide, royalty-free, irrevocable, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, edit, translate, distribute, perform, and display the messages, questions, photographs, comments, or any part thereof, alone or as part of other works, in any form, media, or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed and to sublicense such rights through multiple tiers of sublicenses.
Third Party Links.
To the extent the Services or Subscriber Sites link to outside services and resources, Unity does not control the availability and content of those outside services and resources. Unity does not endorse, monitor, control or make any representations about these third party sites, or any material found on them, or any results that may be obtained from using them or their information and privacy practices. If you decide to access any of these third party websites, you do so entirely at your own risk. You acknowledge and agree that Unity is not responsible for the legality, accuracy or inappropriate nature of any content, advertising, Services, or other material on or available through third party linked sites. Any concerns regarding any such service or resource, or any links thereto, should be directed to the particular service or resource.
Guidelines Regarding Minors.
Unity neither operates a commercial Web site nor an online service directed to children under age 13 that collects personal information from such children. Moreover, this Website is not intended for visitors who are under 18 years of age and does not knowingly solicit or collect information from individuals under the age of 18. If we learn that we have collected PII on a child under the age of 13, we will delete that data from our systems. Anyone under the age of 18 is discouraged from participating in any Services, Public Areas or content related to sex or sexual health.
Security of Personally Identifiable Information and Personal Health Information.
Unity is committed to protecting the PII and PHI that you share with us. When we transfer sensitive personal data over the Internet (e.g., credit card or PHI) we protect it using secure socket layer (SSL) encryption. Unity utilizes commercially acceptable means and industry standard technologies to help protect your PII from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Please understand however, that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage has proven 100% secure and therefore Unity cannot guarantee all possible aspects of its security even when employing stringent security measures. Please take every precaution to protect your PII and PHI when you are on the Internet.
Unity makes no representation or warranty that the content and materials on the Services are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States. The Services are controlled and operated from the United States. Neither this site nor Unity Services are intended to subject Unity to the laws or jurisdictions of any state, country or territory other than that of the United States. Please note that Unity does not represent or warrant that this Website or Unity Services are appropriate for use in any particular jurisdiction. Those of you who choose to access this Website and Unity Services from a country other than the United States agree that the laws, rules and regulations of the United States shall govern any dispute, including those arising from Unity’s use of Personally Identifiable Information or otherwise relating to privacy, even if such rules are less stringent than the laws of your country.
