  • Users understand and agree that their information can be accessed by the Visitors and Users of our Website. Although Unbiased makes reasonable efforts to restrict access to the above mentioned information only to our registered Users, Unbiased can not guarantee that other third parties will not, without Unbiased’ consent, gain access to it.

  • You may ask Unbiased to remove your Product from the Website and thus disable access to your information by Visitors and Users at any time. However, you acknowledge that the Visitors, Users and other parties who have previously gained access to your information may have retained a copy. Unbiased is not responsible for the retention, use or violation of privacy of that information in those instances, or for the use or privacy of that information by any of such parties while it is available on our Website.

  • All our employees, independent contractors and agents have executed non-disclosure agreements, which provide explicit confidentiality protections. Any employee, independent contractor or agent who violates such privacy and/or security policies is subject to possible termination and civil and/or criminal prosecution.

  • We do not make any of your information available to third parties for their marketing purposes. Unbiased’ software runs on individual servers and no data given or collected is shared with other social media platforms. If however, we share your information with third parties, we will notify you. Please note that no transmission over the internet can guarantee confidentiality and non-disclosure, and as such, you transmit at your own risk.

  • Unbiased uses robust security measures to protect data from unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and help ensure the appropriate use of data. When the Services are accessed using the internet, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology protects your information, using both server authentication and data encryption. These technologies help ensure that your information is safe, secure, and only available to you and to whom you have granted access. Unbiased also implements other advanced technology measures to prevent interference or access from outside intruders.
