Privacy Policy

Unite Interactive is committed to respecting the privacy of individuals - whether you are clients who are considering the pursuit of our services or users of our website.

Unite Interactive collects information about you through our website in several ways. This information is used to provide users with information about our company and services, to allow us to understand how visitors navigate our website, and to provide information that is relevant to your interests.

Information Collected

Safeguarding your personal information

Registration is not required for you to use our website. If you are merely a visitor, we do not collect any personal information about you, except to the limited extent through the use of cookies, which are described below.

The nature of the Internet is such that web servers automatically collect certain information about a visit to a website, including the visitor's Internet Protocol (IP) address. IP addresses are unique numbers assigned by Internet Service Providers (ISP) to all devices used to access the Internet. Web servers automatically log the IP addresses of visitors to their sites. The IP address, on its own, does not identify an individual. However, in certain circumstances, such as with the co-operation of an ISP for example, it could be used to identify an individual using the site. For this reason, Unite Interactive considers the IP address to be personal information, particularly when combined with other data automatically collected when visitor requests a Web page such as the page or pages visited, date and time of the visit.

Electronic transmission of sensitive personal information

Unless specifically noted otherwise, neither electronic systems nor email are secure information transmission methods. It is not recommended that sensitive personal information be transmitted electronically.

Data encryption

The website is equipped with a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to ensure a secure connection between the server and an SSL-compatible browser. SSL protocol provides a safe passage for transmitting and authenticating data by encrypting the information. Data cannot be compromised when SSL is in use.

Third-Party Links

Please be aware that Unite Interactive sometimes contains links to other sites that are not governed by this privacy policy. Visitors to Unite Interactive may be directed to third-party sites for more information. Unite Interactive makes no representations or warranties regarding how user data is stored or used on third-party servers.

Cookies

Unite Interactive and our third-party providers collect information using various technologies, including cookies and pixel tags (which are also called clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixels). Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory that help us improve our services and your experience. Pixel tags are electronic images that may be used on our website or emails, and track usage of our website and email effectiveness for communication.

Unite Interactive occasionally uses session cookies to track how our visitors use our site, determine sites previously visited or facilitate the use of secure portions of this site. Information from the cookies is compiled for statistical analysis on traffic patterns and is used to assess and improve the efficiency of the website. A cookie is a file that may be placed on your hard drive without your knowledge by a website to allow it to monitor your use of the site.

The cookies we use do not allow Unite Interactive to identify individuals.

Visiting our website with cookies disabled will have no significant impact on your browsing experience. You can set your browser to detect and reject cookies. Please consult your browser's Help Menu for instructions.

Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be transmitted to and shortened by Google.

Google uses the information generated by the cookies for the purpose of evaluating the use of our website, compiling reports on website activity providing us with these reports for analytical purposes.
