For the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (known as the “GDPR”), Unite Humanity, LLC, located at 2028 E BEN WHITE BLVD STE 240-8242, Austin, TX 78741, is a “Data Controller.” This means that we direct the flow of collected personal information, as opposed to being a “Data Processor,” which is a person or company that does things with and to the information.
We do our best to remind you that you are opting-in to specific types of data gathering and use when you are interacting with our site. This includes when we collect identifiable information, non-identifiable information, sensitive information, cookie and usage information.
Information We Collect About You
We use this section to explain our data collection practices to you. We only collect information from you that allows us to make the site run smoothly and provide you with our services.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information is information that can identify you as a person — simple, right? Well personally identifiable information can also be a combination of information that reveals who you are.
For example, if I know your birthday is on July 4, 1976, I can’t necessarily figure out who you are. However, if I know your birthday, where you went to college, whether you’re married or not, and maybe your zip code, then I probably know enough to figure out who you are if I really wanted to. So personally identifiable information can be either something very specific about you, like your full name, or it can be a combination of general details that let me narrow down the possibilities until I figure out that it can only be you.
We purposefully seek the following personally identifiable information from you in a variety of circumstances: full name, home address, email address, IP address, date of birth, telephone number, username, gender, workplace, school, exact location, language(s), race, learning preference, sexual preference, spiritual and religious preferences, social security number, and shipping and mailing address.
We may seek personally identifiable information from you in a variety of ways, including: when you go through the registration process or fill out contact forms.
We may use personally identifiable information in the following ways: to match learners and mentors, mentors with mentors, and learners and learners. We may also use your information for marketing our services, products, and offerings, or those that we think may be of interest to you.
We store any personally identifiable information that we’ve collected for as long as the account is maintained.
Non-Identifiable Personal Information
Non-identifiable personal information is information that’s technically about you, but cannot be linked directly to you without being combined with personal information. For example, if I know that you use Google Chrome when you visit my site, I will never be able to figure out who you are without combining it with personally identifiable information — even if I know what search terms you typed in, what kind of computer you are using, and how long you use the site for every time you visit, I will not be able to figure out that the user is you without personally identifiable information.
We purposefully seek the following non-identifiable personal information from you in a variety of circumstances: your browser type, operating system, session length, page views, length of page views, referral links, search terms, purchase information, and browser settings.
We may request non-identifiable personal information from you in a variety of ways, including: through automated means, or when you go through the registration process or fill out contact forms.
We may use non-identifiable personal information in the following ways: To improve development and features.
We store any non-identifiable personal information that we’ve collected for as long as the account is maintained.
Sensitive information is the type of information that you might not necessarily want people to know, or at least, you would want to control who knows the information and how they come across it. An example of sensitive information could be your credit score or your social security number. As you can imagine, sensitive information should only be requested by a company if they really need the information to provide you with services.
We collect some sensitive information from you for various reasons and at various times, including sexual orientation and social security number. When we collect sensitive information, it’s so we can match learners and mentors, mentors and mentors, learners and learners or so we can pay mentor affiliate commissions. We collect that information through registration and contact forms. We store sensitive information for as long as the account is maintained.
About Automated Collection
Automated technologies help us make our website run more smoothly. Through the use of automated means, we are able to see which of our pages are most popular, how users find our website, what causes errors in the website, and a lot of other details which help us make the website the best it can be.
We may use a number of automation technologies, including cookies. Flash cookies, web beacons, or others as they become available or necessary.
Please note that disabling and deleting cookies might make this website (and others) work improperly.
Flash cookies are functionally similar to regular cookies, but they are not subject to the same controls as regular cookies are. While you can follow the directions in the “Cookies” section to block most cookies, flash cookies require a different type of opt out. To learn how you can manage your Flash cookie settings, visit the Flash player settings page on Adobe’s website.
Web Beacons are tiny files that load when a user completes an action like visiting a particular webpage, or opening an email. Because the tiny file is loaded from a server, and the server can see that your computer is trying to open the page or email, the server can deduce that you have visited the page or viewed the email.
“Do Not Track”
There is not yet an industry consensus on how to handle “Do Not Track” signals, so our website is not yet set up to handle them. In the future, this section will discuss how the “Do Not Track” signals are honored.
Who Else Sees Your Data
Most websites who collect user data have relationships with other companies or people that result in user data being shared with those companies or people. This section explains how those relationships work, and what our relationships with others look like when it comes to your data.
Processors Who Help Us Run Our Site
Most businesses need others’ help to run properly (imagine using eBay without PayPal!). When a business hires another business or uses another business’s services, that other business is sometimes called a third party processor, or a subprocessor.
We try to keep this section up-to-date with who our subprocessors are, and what kinds of information they collect.
As of the date that these terms were last updated, our subprocessors include PayPal and Stripe.
Our subprocessors have access to a variety of information, insofar as their access to the data is necessary to help us provide services to you. Our subprocessors have access to data you directly provide to them.
Third Parties We Share Information With
Businesses often have complicated relationships with other businesses. Some companies are owned by other companies, they work with companies that are owned by the same company, they engage in partnerships, and find any variety of ways to work together to bring services and products to the public.
We don’t share any user information with third parties as of the date at the top of this policy. If we ever change that, we’ll let you know!
However, one thing to note – if we ever sell the company, part of the company, or any of the assets of the company, our users’ data would probably be shared with the purchasing company or person. Be aware that sharing of your data might have to happen in that kind of circumstance.
We may always share data, if our legal counsel believes it is required of us, in order to comply with any court order, law, or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request. We may also share data, at our discretion, if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of the company, our customers, or others. We may also share data to protect ours or other people’s rights, or in connection with a sale, merger, etc. of the company, or sharing that is necessary for us to run our site or services.
Third Parties Who Share Information With Us
Some companies get information from third parties for a variety of reasons. One example might be if a website is trying to create a more personalized web browsing experience for their users. If a website knows the kind of content you like, and they’re able to share that information with another website, then that other website can also make sure to only show you content that you like. However, there can be any number of reasons why a website needs information from third parties, like for credit checks, allowing users to login through social media, or other reasons.
As of the date of the policy, we do not collect information about our users from any third party.

Our company makes efforts to provide security to our user data. It’s impossible to guarantee that data security will be 100% effective, that’s why you hear about hacks or viruses all the time now. Small companies, large companies, and even governments are sometimes the victims of cyber attacks. We take steps to protect your data through.
When we delete your information at your request, or due to our record keeping practices we no longer maintain copies of your data.
Your Choices and Rights

We try to respond to all legitimate requests under these rights within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated as to when we expect to have the request completed.
