Personal Information We Collect Directly From You
Information You Provide
You provide us with your information when you communicate with us to: • Purchase products from our web store; • Submit forms or make requests for information on our website; • Subscribe to e-mail newsletters or updates; • Information you submit to us via email, fax or telephone. In most cases the information given in these interactions is not personal since the interaction is with another business entity, and not with a natural person. However, in the instances where we sell products or offer services directly to a person, we only collect the personal information you choose to provide. This may include your name, email address, billing and shipping addresses, and telephone number, language of preference. We also may maintain your responses to questionnaires or other forms related to our products or services that you may complete from time to time. Please do not submit information that you do not want us to have. Your submitting of the information is taken as your consent to use the information as outlined in this policy.

Usage information - This is information about the website and how you use it. We may also obtain data from our third-party partners and service providers to analyze how users use our site.

How We May Use Your Personal Information
We generally use your personal information to serve you, to improve our products and services, to perform our contract with you once you have ordered, to improve your customer experience, and for our legitimate business interests.
For example, we use personal information to provide products and services to you, communicate with you about those products and services, and enhance your customer experience. Specifically, your personal information may be used to process transactions, respond to questions, maintain online accounts, send you information about products or services that may be of interest to you, analyze and monitor sales trends, provide product recommendations and reviews, comply with our legal obligations, and develop a knowledge base regarding our customers.
In addition, we may combine your personal information with information that we receive from other sources, including from third party business partners. For example, we may use third party information to confirm shipping or credit information.
Legitimate business interests include activities such as us administering our site, processing transactions, conducting research, improving the usability of our site, and aggregating statistics on the number of unique devices using our site to detect and prevent fraud and misuse of it.
We may use the personal information you provide us to send you emails to invite you to participate in various programs or inform you of new products or services.
Note: We do not currently use your personal information for the purposes of profiling or automated decision making
How We May Share Personal Information
Unist may share your personal information with others for a number of different reasons. We may share your personal information to fulfill your requests, to ship you products, provide you with information regarding products and services, to comply with law, and to enforce our rights. We also may share personal information among our independent sales representatives and distributors so they can provide you the products or services you have requested.
Examples of how we may share your personal information include:
With Service Providers, Business Partners, and Vendors: If you purchase goods from us, we may have to provide credit card information to our credit card processor for payment purposes. We will also have to provide your name and address to the company that ships our merchandise. Similarly, we may share personal information with sales representatives and distributors who may be involved in the delivery of the services and goods. Your information may be shared with parties that provide online services, such as those who host our web store or those who provide web site maintenance, support, and optimization. We also may retain other companies and individuals to perform services on our behalf, and we may collaborate with other companies and individuals with respect to particular products or services (collectively, “Providers”). Examples of Providers include data analysis firms, credit card processing companies, customer service and support providers, email and SMS vendors, web hosting and development companies, and fulfillment companies. Providers also include our co-promotion partners for products that we jointly develop and/or market with other companies. Some Providers also may collect information on our behalf from our site. These third parties may be provided with access to personal information needed to perform their functions.
To Comply with Law or to Protect Our Rights: We may disclose your personal information as required by law, when we believe disclosure is necessary to comply with a regulatory requirement, judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us, or to protect the safety, rights, or property of our customers, the public, or Unist.
Unist does not share your Personal Data with third parties for the purpose of enabling them to deliver their advertisements to you.
Unist does not intend to or knowingly collect such information about, or sell products to, children who are under 13 years of age. If we determine we have collected personal information from a child younger than 13 years of age, we will take reasonable measures to remove that information from our systems. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information to us. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s activities and to help enforce this Policy.
No security program is impenetrable, and criminals have proven adept at circumventing widely adopted security safeguards, so we cannot guarantee the security of personal information. Accordingly, you acknowledge that you provide personal information to us at your own risk.
Any user or third party accessing our website or services is responsible for its own use of the website and the services. We are not responsible for any third party’s actions or its security controls with respect to information that third parties may collect or process via the website, services, or otherwise.
Cookies and Other Tools That May Collect Information About You
In addition to personal information you may provide directly to us, Unist and its business partners may collect and store information about you and your use of the Site through cookies, tracking pixels, and other technologies (collectively, “Tools”). Cookies are small text files that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. We collect, use, and modify this information to better understand, customize, and improve your experience with our website, services, and offerings as well as to manage our advertising. For example, we use web analytics services that leverage these Tools to help us understand how visitors engage with and navigate our site, e.g., how and when pages on the site are visited and by how many visitors. We are also able to offer our visitors a more customized and relevant experience on the site by delivering, through the use of these Tools, content and functionality based on your preferences and interests. If you have provided us with personal information, e.g., through a registration or a request for certain materials, we may associate that personal information with information gathered through the Tools. This allows us to offer increased personalization and functionality.

Use Common Sense with ALL of Your Online Activities
Even the best policies and practices cannot always protect your privacy and security. Dishonest advertisers, hackers and scam artists constantly search the Internet for new targets. Your best protection is to use common sense in all of your online activities. Understand that e-mail is inherently an insecure form of communication. Sometimes it is possible for third parties to illegally intercept your unencrypted messages. Be sure to give your e-mail address in circumstances in which it is safe to do so. Make sure you always verify the identity of anyone asking for your personal information. Do not give out your screen name, password, social security number or credit card number to someone you do not know.
