Use of Personal Information
Any information you submit through UNIFY’s websites will be held in the strictest confidence. In no way will your personal information ever be used without your consent. To ensure this, all forms on our websites that send information to a database that may be used in the future, e.g. mailing lists, registration, etc., have checkboxes where you specify whether or not you would like to receive information from us in the future. Forms used just to send email, post messages, etc., do not include the option, but will never be used to send information. Be assured that we do not sell our name and address lists. If you choose to receive information from us, each message will also include instructions on how to “unsubscribe” from future mailings should you wish to cancel.
The only information we automatically collect is that related to the use of our website. This information is anonymous and is gathered through our servers’ log files. These log files record generic information, such as the number of visits our website receives, the types of browsers used and the number of files downloaded, but never personal information. This log file information allows us to create better content aimed at our viewers’ preferences.
UNIFY does not collect information that personally identifies individuals except when individuals provide such specific information on a voluntary basis. There may be occasions where specific personal information is requested before an individual can enter certain sections of UNIFY’s site or for participation in a certain programme. For example, registration may be required to participate in an online forum or contest. This kind of registration helps us to ensure that content standards are rigorously upheld or that contact can be made with prize winners. In all such cases, UNIFY will collect only information that is voluntarily provided by the user and undertakes that such information will be kept strictly confidential. Any such individual information provided to UNIFY will not be sold or made available to a third party. UNIFY does reserve the right, however, to perform statistical analyses from the information you provide so as to improve our products or to gather marketing information. Only aggregated data from these analyses, not individual data, will be used for this purpose.
