Consumer Privacy Policy


Updated November 1, 2013


Please note that this revision does not materially change the way Unity treats personal information as compared to any previous version of the Consumer Privacy Policy (“Privacy                          Policy”).


This Privacy Policy contains the following sections:




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”).


What This Privacy Policy Covers.


This Privacy Policy covers how Unity treats the information it collects through the Unity Services, from which this Privacy Policy is displayed or linked.


A Subscriber Site’s use of information collected through its branded Services are set forth in each Subscriber Site’s Privacy Policy displayed or linked from their branded Services, or through means of Supplemental Disclosures to this Privacy Policy. Your use of a Subscriber Site may be subject to that Subscriber Site's Terms and Conditions of Use and Privacy Policy.


BY REGISTERING FOR AND ACCESSING THE SERVICES THAT LINK TO OR DISPLAY THIS PRIVACY POLICY, YOU HEREBY ACCEPT THE POLICIES AND PRACTICES DESCRIBED IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY. Each time you register for, access or download a Service, you agree and expressly consent to Unity's collection, use and disclosure of the information that you provide as described in this Privacy Policy and any Supplemental Disclosures made a part of this Privacy Policy. Unity Services are also governed by all applicable laws, Unity's Terms and Conditions of Use, and when applicable the terms set forth in Subscriber Sites' Privacy Policiesi and Supplemental Disclosures made a part of this Privacy Policy, and any other published rules pertaining to a particular Subscriber Site from which you access, use or download the branded Unity Services.


Please read this Privacy Policy, the Supplemental Disclosures and the privacy policies of your Subscriber Site.


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 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:


In addition to information that you provide or we collect through the Services, we may verify or collect certain information about you from third parties, including your Subscriber Site. Unity may combine this third party information with information we have already collected from you via the Site Services. Unity will protect and use this third party information in conformance with this Privacy Policy in the same way that we treat other information.


How Unity Uses the Information Collected.


In general, Unity uses the information it collects as necessary or appropriate to:

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.


The Services may include message boards, chat rooms, profiles, interactive forums and social networking environments (collectively referred in this Privacy Policy as “Public Areas”). Please be aware that Unity makes no commitment to monitor these Public Areas. If you choose to participate in Public Areas, you should be aware that the personal and other information you provide there will be made broadly available to others and can be read, collected or utilized by other users of these Public Areas, both within and outside of the Services and by the Subscriber Sites which will have access to Public Areas. Certain Public Areas may have additional rules and conditions. With respect to the Public Areas found within Services and Services used, accessed or downloaded through Subscriber Sites, the Services may provide each Subscriber Site (not the user) with the ability to determine the privacy setting with respect to user generated content (“User Content”) within the branded Services. The privacy setting determines whether and who can view the User Content. Unity will abide by the privacy settings dictated by the Subscriber Site provided, or as the case may be the user provided, however that Unity may release such User Content: (a) as required by order of a government agency or court of competent jurisdiction; (b) to comply with legal process; (c) if necessary to enforce the terms of this Privacy Policy or the Unity Terms and Conditions of Use; (d) to respond to a good faith belief or third party claims that such information contents violate the rights or interests of a third party; (e) to protect the rights or property of Unity, other users, and Subscriber Sites. Please carefully review the privacy setting for each Service prior to accessing the Service or providing User Content.


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.


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.


Changes to this Privacy Policy Generally.


Unity reserves the right to make non-significant changes to this Privacy Policy that will not affect Unity’s use of PII at any time without any notice to you other than posting any such changes in the revised Privacy Policy on the Unity website and linked from those branded Services for which this policy applies. Unity may modify this Privacy Policy at any time so please review it frequently. If Unity makes material changes to this Privacy Policy that affect the use of PII, Unity will notify you if you provide Unity with an email address for that purpose. Material changes to this Privacy Policy mean changes that expand the permissible uses or disclosures of PII from the manner in which such information was allowed under the previous Privacy Policy(ies). You may choose to opt-out of continuing to use the Services by existing Services immediately. Your continued use of the Services signifies your acceptance of the changes to this Privacy Policy. In instances where we ask for your PII and we tell you through Supplemental Disclosures or other legal notices that the data collected on that page will be shared with unaffiliated third parties, including Subscriber Sites or in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy, those disclosures will override anything to the contrary in this Privacy Policy.


Changes to this Privacy Policy Affecting your Personal Health Information.


If a material change in this Privacy Policy involves the use of your PHI, your express opt-in permission will be asked for. If you choose not to accept the changes to the revised Privacy Policy, the current Privacy Policy terms and conditions will remain in effect for the period of time in which the specific health related Service is made available.


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.


Applicable Law.


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.


Correcting, Updating and Controlling Personally Identifiable Information.


Unity provides users with the ability to access, correct, change or remove the information they have submitted by going back to the Services as the case may be and logging into the associated account and making the modifications. If users no longer desire to utilize or access particular Services, they may remove the PII from their accounts. Unity may store and retain both the historical information users have provided (PII and PHI) in an active database or an inactive back up medium. Please be aware that even if you delete your information from Unity records, there is residual information that will remain in Unity’s database, access logs and other records, which may contain PII and PHI. Unity is not responsible for updating or removing any information within databases or lists of Subscriber Sites, or other third parties permitted to receive such information pursuant to this Privacy Policy as a result of your access to the Services. When you receive promotional communication from Unity you will have an opportunity to opt-out by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the promotional email you receive, or by editing your preferences on receiving these communications when you are logged in as a registered user.
