UNATION is the sole owner of the information collected on the Site. The Site collects personally identifiable information from our users at several different points on our Site.
Information we may collect from you
We may collect and process the following information about you (as the process change an update will be issued):
Information (such as your name, email address, zip code, birthdate and cell number) that you provide by completing forms on the Site, including if you register as a user of the Site, subscribe to any service, upload or submit any material via the Site, request any information or enter into any competition or promotion we may sponsor;
- in association with an account sign-in facility, your password and log-in details;
- your preferences, which helps us provide you with more relevant offers;
- details of any transactions made by you through the Site;
- communications you send to us, for example to report a problem, flagging or to submit queries, concerns or comments regarding the Site or its content;
- information from surveys that we may, from time to time, run on the Site for research purposes, if you choose to respond to them;
- details of your visits to the Site, the resources you access and any data you download;
- information obtained from your social networking profile, if you log-in via a social networking site, for the purpose of ease of use.
You are under no obligation to provide any such information. However, if you should choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with certain services.
Your Location Data
In order to get the most out of our service and to allow us to provide you with relevant events, we need to process your approximate location from time to time. The types of location data that will be processed are your latitude, longitude, cell tower ID, etc. Your location data will only be processed for as long as necessary in order for us to respond to your request for relevant offers. The location data may be transferred to our merchants for the purpose of providing you with the best offers at that time to match your preferences.
As is true of most Web sites, the Site gathers certain information automatically and store it in log records. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information to analyze trends, to administer the Site, improve the Users’ experiences, to track Users’ movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about our User base. The Site tracks non-personally identifiable information about visitors to our site in the aggregate such as clickstream data in order to better serve our customers. The Site may employ keyword analytics to track clickstream data.
If you purchase a product or service from the Site, certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form is obtained. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you. We may also use this information to send you updates on your account. Clients have the right to opt-out of non-critical communications such as event notifications or invitations. Clients may not opt out of critical emails such as notifications of account status, or notification of account status modification and/or account cancellations.
Surveys or Contests
From time-to-time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code).
We use this information to notify contest winners and award prizes, to monitor site traffic or personalize the Site (in the case of anonymous information collected in surveys), to send participants an email. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a contest or survey with other third parties unless we give you prior notice and choice.
A “cookie” is an element of data which is a piece of text, not a program and that a website can send to the User’s browser, which may then be stored on a User’s computer system. The Site can access the information from a cookie sent to a User’s computer system. UNATION may place cookies on Users’ computer or phone systems. UNATION cannot access other cookies sent by other web sites or the information contained therein. Cookies are used to track usage of the Site and further customize User’s experience when such is visiting the Site. By tracking usage, UNATION can best determine what features of the Site best serve each User. When a User revisits the Site, we will recognize such User by the cookie and may tailor her/his visit accordingly. Users may decline the cookie by using the appropriate feature of its web client software, if available, however, some functionality of the Site may not function properly or as fast if the User declines the cookie.

Use of Personal Information to Users
Data Analysis & Other User
Personal Information collected by the Site either on a form or passively, will be used by UNATION for general business purposes, including but not limited to Site development, for marketing and promotional purposes, for a statistical analysis of Users’ behavior, for product development, for content improvement, to inform advertisers as to how many Users have seen or clicked on their advertisements, and to customize content and layout of the Site.
Sharing of Personal Information
UNATION will not sell, rent, swap, or otherwise disclose the registration data of Users to any unaffiliated third party. However, we may share Personal Information supplied by the User with Affiliate Members. These Affiliate Members will not use this Personally Identifiable Information other than for the express purpose of providing the service(s) requested. The Site uses an outside credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services.
We may share Personal Information and Private Content in response to a valid law enforcement request or legal process, to protect our rights and property or those of third parties, or as otherwise permitted or required by law.
We may transfer Personal Information and Private Content if we sell some or all of our assets to another company in connection with a business merger or acquisition. We will require the recipient to notify you in advance of any material changes to the way in which information that identifies you personally will be used, and to give you the opportunity to opt-out of any such materially changed use.
Sharing by you
Remember that any Public Content that you voluntarily submit by posting to our service can be accessed by any other UNATION user and in most cases by non-members. You have the ability to designate content as Public Content or Private Content and the right to change such designation. We will not make any Private Content available to any third party except to a third party authorized by you to access such information as provided below. We allow you to make the choice to share Private Content you create or store on “nonpublic,” secure sections of UNATION (such as your private cards, calendar events and connections) with specific third parties of your choosing. You may do this by emailing such parties a link that provides them with access to the specific Private Content you want to share, or by creating a shared link with that person; that link will not provide access to the rest of your Private Content. If you use one of the helpful UNATION features designed to allow you to voluntarily forward or share your Private Content with family or friends, you automatically limit UNATION’s ability to keep that shared information private. We recommend that you do this only with trusted friends and family.
Emailing and Messaging Via an UNATION Account
As part of our Services, Account holders may communicate with other Account holders and, to a limited extent, with non-registered users, through use of their Accounts. Account holders may email or message non-registered users outside of the Services to share information regarding an Event, or to invite them to join or refer them to the Services. Additionally, Account holders can email or message other Account holders regarding an Event.
The Site may provide services or links to third-party service on our site. When you sign up for services, we will share your name and email as necessary for the third party to provide that service. These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
Third Party Providers
UNATION will from time to time contract with one or more third parties to maintain and host the Site, as well as provide Users with services related to its offering. Therefore, any information submitted by Users, including Personal Information, will be placed, stored and viewed on a computer server maintained by these third parties. The use of the Site by Users and any provision of Personal Information by same constitutes an irrevocable acknowledgement by such Users that such information or content could pass through and may be stored, accessed and used by third parties to process requests of such Users and in servers outside of the control of UNATION. These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
No Liability for Acts of Third Parties
Although these websites will use commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of Personal Information and/or the registration data, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure. UNATION will have no liability for disclosure of registration data due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties.
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our registration or order forms, that information encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can send email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use of Aggregated Information
UNATION reserves the right to disclose to third parties information about Users usage of the Site and any related services, including information gathered during use of the Site by Users. Any information disclosed will be in aggregate data form (such as overall patterns or demographic reports) that does not describe or identify any individual User.
Access to Personal Information
Upon request via postal mail, or e-mail to email@example.com the Site will provide Users with a summary of any of their Personal Information retained. Users may request their Personal Information to be removed from the UNATION database. UNATION will only send Personal Information records to the e-mail address on file for the User name associated with it.
