Privacy Policy 

 
 

This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, process, and disclose your information across the Hunit’s Services.

Last updated on January 14, 2019.

When this policy mentions “Hunit”, “we”, “us” or “our” it refers to Hunit AS, which is responsible for your information under this Privacy Policy (the “Data Controller”).

Information We Collect
There are three general categories of information we collect.

Information you provide. We collect information you share with Hunit when you use the Hunit Services.

  • Account Information. When you sign up for an Hunit Services, we require certain information such as your name, email address, and and other information related to you and your use of the Hunit Services.

  • Other Authentication-Related Information. To help create and maintain a trusted environment, we may collect identification (like a photo of your government-issued ID) or other authentication information.

  • Payment Information. We collect your financial information (like your bank account or credit card information) when you use Hunit’s Services

  • Communications with Hunit and/or other Authenticated Users. When you communicate with Hunit or use the Hunit Services to communicate with other Authenticated Users, we collect information about your communication and any information you choose to provide.

  • Other Information. You may otherwise choose to provide us information when you fill in a form, conduct a search, update or add information to your Hunit Account, respond to surveys, post to Hunit forums or help desks, participate in promotions, or use other features of the Hunit Services.

Information we collect automatically. When you use the Hunit Services, we collect information about how you use them.

  • Usage Information. We collect information about your interactions with the Hunit’s Services, such as the pages or other content you view and other actions as allowed by the Services.

  • Cookies and Similar Technologies. We may use cookies and other similar technologies, such as web beacons, pixels, and mobile identifiers. We may also allow our business partners to use these tracking technologies on the Hunit Web Services, or engage others to track your behavior on our behalf. While you may disable the usage of cookies through your browser settings, we do not change our practices in response to a “Do Not Track” signal in the HTTP header from your browser or mobile application. For more information on our use of these technologies, see our Cookie Policy.

Information collected from third parties. We may collect information that others provide about you when they use the Hunit’s Services, or obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through Hunit’s Services. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may receive additional information about you, such as demographic data or fraud detection information, from third party service providers and/or partners, and combine it with information we have about you. For example, we may receive background check results or fraud warnings from service providers like identity verification services for our fraud prevention and risk assessment efforts. We may receive information about you and your activities on and off the Hunit Services through partnerships, or about your experiences and interactions from our partnered third parties.

Sharing & Disclosure

With your consent. We may share your information at your direction or as described at the time of sharing.

Service providers. We use a variety of third party service providers to help us provide services related to the Hunit Services. Service providers may be located inside or outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). For example, service providers may help us: (i) verify or authenticate your identification, (ii) check information against public databases, (iii) assist us with background checks, fraud prevention, and risk assessment, (iv) provide customer service, advertising, or payments services or, (v) provide underlying infrastructure as required for the operation of the Hunit Services. These providers have limited access to your information to perform these tasks on our behalf, and are contractually obligated to use it consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Safety and compliance with law. Hunit may disclose your information to courts, law enforcement or governmental authorities, or authorized third parties, if and to the extent we are required to do so by law or if such disclosure is reasonably necessary:

(i) to comply with legal process and to respond to claims asserted against Hunit,

(ii) to respond to verified requests relating to a criminal investigation or alleged or suspected illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other of our users to legal liability,

(iii) to enforce and administer our Terms of Service or other agreements with our account holders,

(iv) for fraud investigation and prevention, risk assessment, customer support, product development and debugging purposes, or

(v) to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Hunit, its employees, its other account holders, or members of the public.

We will attempt to notify you about these requests unless: (i) providing notice is prohibited by the legal process itself, by court order we receive, or by applicable law, or (ii) we believe that providing notice would be futile, ineffective, create a risk of injury or bodily harm to an individual or group, or create or increase a risk of fraud upon Hunit’s Services, its other account holders and/or and the Hunit technical platform (collectively, “Risk Scenarios”). In instances where we comply with legal requests without notice for these reasons, we will attempt to notify you about the request after the fact if we determine in good faith that we are no longer legally prohibited from doing so and that no Risk Scenarios apply.

Corporate affiliates. To help us provide the Hunit Services, Hunit may share your information within its corporate family of companies (both financial and non-financial entities) that are related by common ownership or control. These related entities are covered under this Privacy Policy.

Assignment of rights. If Hunit undertakes or is involved in any merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of assets, bankruptcy, or insolvency event, then Hunit may sell, transfer or share some or all of its assets, including your information. In this event, Hunit will notify you before your personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Aggregated data. Hunit may also share aggregated information (information about our users that we combine together so that it no longer identifies or references an individual user) and non-personally identifiable information for industry and market analysis, demographic profiling, marketing and advertising, and other business purposes.

Analyzing Your Use

Hunit may review, scan, or analyze your use of the Hunit Services for fraud prevention, risk assessment, regulatory compliance, investigation, product development, research, and customer support purposes. In some cases, Hunit may also scan, review, or analyze your use of the Services to debug, improve, and expand product offerings. Hunit uses automated methods where reasonably possible. However, occasionally Hunit may need to manually review some use of the Services, such as for fraud investigations and customer support, or to assess and improve the functionality of these automated tools.

Global Operations
As described in this Privacy Policy, we may sometimes share your information within our family of companies or with third parties. When you use the Hunit Services, you authorize us to transfer, store, and process your information to Norway, the United States and possibly other countries. Laws in these countries may differ from the laws applicable to the place where you live.

Data Security
Hunit is continuously implementing and updating administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your information against unauthorized access, loss, destruction, or alteration. However, the Internet is not a 100% secure environment so we can’t guarantee the security of the transmission or storage of your information.

Changes to this Privacy Policy
Hunit reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time in accordance with this provision. If we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will post the revised Privacy Policy on the Hunit Services and update the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy. We will also provide you with notice of the modification by email at least thirty (30) days before the date they become effective. If you disagree with the revised Privacy Policy, you may cancel your Hunit Account. If you do not cancel your Hunit Account before the date the revised Privacy Policy becomes effective, your continued access or use of the Hunit Services will constitute acceptance of the revised Privacy Policy.
