Our Commitment to Privacy
Do You Sell My Information?
NO. We do not sell your information.
What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit the site, you may provide us with one of three types of information: (1) Personal Information, which means personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual or corporate basis; (2) De-Identified Information, which means collected online information in which all personal and individually identifiable elements have been removed; and (3) Aggregate Information, which refers to general web site use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse the site.
(1) Personal Information That You Choose To Provide
In addition, if you correspond further with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages with your email address and our responses.
Mobile Device Information
We also collect Personal Information from your computer, tablet, mobile phone, or other devices you are using to access our Services. This can include the IP address, the browser, geolocation, and your language settings.
PIndividual Data Set Information
In general, personal information may include name, home address, email address, IP address, device identifier, social media account username or ID, phone number, SMS text messaging account name or number, preferences, and other related information.
Personal information is collected online when users voluntarily submit non-public personal information on the site by requesting information, receiving electronic notices, or other similar communications. Only your IP address would be collected automatically when you access the site to enhance your browsing experience via cookies and/or auditing.
We will retain any personal information only to fulfil the intended purposes for which we collected it. We will establish minimum and maximum retention periods based upon the type of information collected (i.e., sensitivity), the intended purposes, and as otherwise may be legally required. We will retain your personal information for as long as you use the site and until you request to delete your data.
(2) De-Identified Information
De-identified information is used collectively for analyses and statistics to improve the site. De-identified information does not identify a specific user. This includes any statistical analysis derived from the efficiency and performance of the site or any resultant data for the real estate investments provided through the site.
We may use de-identified information to improve the efficiency, performance, and offerings of the site. We may also sell or share such de-identified information with others.
(3) Aggregate Information Based On Web Site Usage
Aggregate information is non-personally identifiable or anonymous information about you, such as pages most frequently accessed by you, time spent on a page or area of the site, the number of visits to the site by you, types of browsers used by you, cookie preferences, or search terms entered by you. Aggregate information is used collectively, and no single person can be identified by that compiled information (for example, the number of people who logged into the site on a particular day). Aggregate information does not identify a specific user.
When you visit the site, we automatically collect aggregate information about your visit. We can tell the type of computer, browser, and web service you are using. We also know the date, time, and pages you visit. Collecting this information helps us design the site to enhance your experience while on our site.
We may also use aggregate information for internal purposes, such as tracking demographic data and providing targeted content to make the site more useful to our members. The gathering of this aggregate information may be accomplished by cookies or web beacons. We will collect an IP address from all visitors to the site. An IP address is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet.
We may share aggregate information with third parties to enhance your experience on our site. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site, analyse trends, track users’ movements on the site, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use to improve the site, and deliver customised, personalised content and data analytics reporting. IP addresses, however, are not linked to personal information. We may also use a unique assigned number located with the site’s URL to determine the website from which you navigated to get to the site. While this number may not be apparent to you, it does not contain your personal information.
Like other commercial websites, our site utilises a standard technology called “cookies” and web server logs, orbeacons,” to collect information about how the site is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at the site, and the websites visited by you before and after the site. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.
How Do We Use Personal Information Provided By You To Us?
Generally, we use personal information to administer our business activities, provide client service, and provide other products and services to our clients and prospective clients. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to the site and new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. The lists are used to send you product and service offers developed and managed under our traditional corporate standards designed to safeguard our clients’ personal information security and Privacy.
How Does Unified use Social Media?
We use social media in different ways and for different purposes. We use it partly to facilitate the use of certain features of the site, promote our services and mission, advertise, improve, and promote our mission and our services, and showcase key clients and accomplishments. We also use it for advertising, to get feedback, to improve our product, and to expand our services.
Integration of Social Media Plugins
We have also integrated social media plugins into our platform. When you click on one of the buttons (such as Facebook’s “Like” button), certain information is shared with these social media providers.
What are Cookies and Web Beacon (or Pixel)?
Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognise the computer used to access a website. Cookies are small pieces of data stored by a user’s web browser on the user’s hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that website by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related web pages. This makes it easier for users to move from web page to web page and complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalised.
A web beacon (or pixel) is an object embedded in a web page or email that is usually invisible to the user but allows checking to see if the user has viewed the page or email.
How Do We Use Information That We Collect From Cookies Or Web Beacons?
We use website browser software tools such as cookies and web server logs to gather information about our website users’ browsing activities, improve the site, and better serve our clients. This information assists us in designing and arranging our pages in the most user-friendly manner and continuously improving the site to meet the needs of our clients and prospective Prospective Clients.
Cookies help us collect important business and technical statistics. The information in the cookies lets us trace the paths followed by users to the site as they move from one page to another. Web server logs allow us to count how many people visit the site and evaluate the site’s visitor capacity. We do not use these technologies to capture your individual email address or any personally identifying information about you.
The site may also use other technologies to track the specific pages viewed by visitors on this website or to target specific content that might interest you. These technologies help us understand how visitors use the site. However, you will opt-out (or opt-in if applicable law requires) of receiving such targeted content on those site pages where this technology is used.
We also use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and our marketing campaigns. Some browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that lets you tell websites you do not want your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, and our site is not currently set up to respond to those signals for tracking on our site.
Do We Share Personal Information Provided By Or Collected From You?
As a general policy, we do not share, sell, or trade personal information with third parties without your permission. However, we may provide personal information to third parties directly involved in the operation, performance, support, and/or maintenance of the site and each service offered on the site, including our web site service providers, technical consultants, network retailers, and business partners. We may also use your information to personalise your experience, allow us to deliver the type of content and information found on the site, administer a coupon, promotion, survey, or other site feature, ask for ratings and reviews of products and services, and correspond with you.
We may also share personal information with third parties under limited circumstances. For example, we may release personal information to third parties to perform services such as hosting the site. Such third parties must maintain the confidentiality of personal information and may not use personal information for any purpose other than providing those services or enhancing your experience on the site. We may share aggregate information with our business partners and other third parties.
Occasionally, we may have to provide personal information or aggregate information in response to a valid court order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law, or if we reasonably believe that you have committed unlawful acts or acts that may endanger the health or safety of another user or the general public. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities we, in good faith, believe to be illegal. We may release certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and ourselves.
Sharing Information With Affiliates, Strategic Partners, and Service Providers
Occasionally, you may notice offers from outside companies listed on the site. We cannot make any representations about the practices and policies of these companies. We may also share information with our affiliates, including Unified Global, Inc. We are committed To Proper Internet Practises And Full Compliance With The CAN-SPAM Act Of 2003 (15 USC Section 77-1 Et Al.) And Require Any Affiliate, Strategic Partner, And Service Provider To Do So.

As Our Client, You Will Be Given The Opportunity To Notify Us Of Your Request Not To Receive These Offers By Clicking On A Response Box When You Receive Such An Offer Or By Sending Us An Email Request At Info@Unified.Law.
How Do We Secure Information Transmissions?
We maintain commercially reasonable safeguards to ensure the security, integrity, and Privacy of the personal information provided by you. Such security safeguards are intended to be appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information collected. When you send confidential and/or personal information to us on the site, secure server software encrypts all the information you input before it is stored on our network servers. The information is also scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches the site. These security measures work to ensure that such personal information is not accessible to third parties.
Other emails you may send to us may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures will be in place before you transmit that information. We ask that you not send confidential information such as social security or account numbers to us through an unsecured email.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
We Utilise Encryption And Security Software To Safeguard The Confidentiality Of Personal Information Collected On Our Site From Unauthorised Access Or Disclosure And Accidental Loss, Alteration, Or Destruction. We physically secure the areas where we hold hard copies of the information we collect online. We regularly back up the information we collect online to insure against loss. We Use Technical Controls To Secure The Information We Collect Online As Appropriate, Including But Not Limited To: Hash Technology, Encryption, Firewalls, And Password Protections. We disclose the minimum personal information necessary for the particular purpose in compliance with applicable law.

Employee Access, Training, and Expectations
Our corporate values, ethical standards, policies, and practises are committed to protecting client information. Our business practises limit employee access to confidential information and limit the use and disclosure of such information to authorised persons, processes, and transactions.

We train relevant personnel on our Privacy and security measures.
Although we make good faith efforts to store the personal information we collect in a secure operating environment that is not accessible to unauthorised users, we cannot guarantee 100% complete security.
