WE WILL NOT USE YOUR PERSONAL AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION FOR PURPOSES OTHER THAN THOSE YOU HAVE SPECIFICALLY AUTHORIZED.

ONLINE PRIVACY STATEMENT
Unbound is committed to respecting your online privacy and security. Our website has been developed to allow you to visit us on the Internet without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. If you choose to provide us with information from which you can be personally identified, it will be used exclusively to support your relationship with Unbound.
To prevent unauthorized access and to maintain the accuracy and integrity of stored data, Unbound has implemented comprehensive control measures and processes utilizing current technology. Unbound uses internet encryption software Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Protocol when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as payment information. Entered data is encrypted at your browser and sent via the Internet in an encrypted format. It is then de-encrypted at our server. Once we receive your personal and financial data, it is only accessible to staff members authorized to access your account information and process these transactions.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Like many other websites, our site uses “cookies” to track activity within our site as well as record the IP address of each visitor to this site. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer. A cookie contains a unique identifying feature that allows our computer to recognize you when you return to our site. The recorded IP address tells us which site you came from when you visited our site and other identifying information about your visit such as which pages you visit, the type of electronic device you used to access our site and your location. It does not include your email address or other personal information.
We use Google AdWords Remarketing to advertise on other sites across the web. AdWords remarketing helps us display relevant ads tailored to you based on what parts of the Unbound website you have viewed. Adwords does this by placing a tracking cookie on your computer. This cookie doesn’t identify you personally and does not allow access to your computer. The cookie is used to say “This person visited this page on the Unbound site, so show them ads relating to that page.” Google AdWords Remarketing allows us to tailor our advertising and marketing to better suit your needs and helps us to display ads that are more relevant to you on the sites that you visit.
If you’d like to opt-out of allowing Unbound and Google to use this information to show you more relevant advertising, there are a couple things you can do:
- You can change the settings associated with your Google account here.
- In addition, you can use a tool created by the Network Advertising Initiative to control your online advertising preferences more broadly.
HOW WE USE IT
We use the information we record to help gather demographic information about visitors to our site including but not limited to what countries and domains visitors come from and general information about their behavior on the site. We also use it to troubleshoot problems with our servers and to administer this website more effectively.
The information we collect may be used to improve the content of our web pages, to notify visitors about updates to our website, or it may be used by us to contact sponsors, donors and others regarding Unbound programs when prior opt-in approval has been given.
