If you submit any Testimonials, Unchained Capital shall own and have the unrestricted right to use any Testimonials (and your name in connection with such Testimonials) without restriction or payment of any kind to you, including the right to display, distribute and otherwise exploit your Testimonial and name for advertising and other purposes.

When you apply for a Bitcoin Secured Loan, access the Site or use any of the other Unchained Capital Services, we or companies (e.g., Google Analytics) that we work with may place small data files called cookies or pixel tags on your computer or other device. We use these technologies to:
We use both session and persistent cookies when you access our Site or any other Unchained Capital Services. Session cookies expire and no longer have any effect when you log out of your account or close your browser. Persistent cookies remain on your browser until you erase them or they expire.
Your web browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. We do not honor any web browser “Do Not Track” signals or other mechanisms that provide you with the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services.
We may use or partner with other third-party companies, agents or contractors for various purposes in connection with our business and operations (“Service Providers”), including, ACH transactions, wire transactions, verification of Borrower’s bank details, relationship building, the marketing and growth of our business and the performance of services on our behalf, such as gathering and analyzing information and the provision of services to you. In the course of performing these responsibilities and providing such services, these other companies may have access to your information. We may also share information, including your information, with these Services Providers in order to enable them to perform these responsibilities and to provide these services. Many Services Providers have adopted their own privacy policies, which are not subject to control by Unchained Capital. You should always review the policies of these Service Providers to make sure that you are comfortable with the ways in which they collect, use, maintain, protect and disclose your information.
The Service Providers may also transmit cookies to your computer or device, when you click on ads that appear on or through the Service. Also, if you click on a link to a third party website, such third party may also transmit cookies to you. Please be aware that cookies placed by third parties may continue to track your activities online even after you are no longer using any our Services, and those third parties may not honor “Do Not Track” requests you have set using your web browser.
You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page, and if you want to, you can opt out of interest-based advertising entirely by cookie settings or permanently using a browser plugin.
We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personal information:
Some of the information that we collect automatically is statistical data and does not include personal information, but we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties or you provide to us. It helps us to improve the Site and the other Unchained Capital Services, and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including enabling us to:
We will not use your personal information for purposes other than those purposes we have disclosed to you, without your permission. From time to time we may request your permission to allow us to share your personal information with third parties. You may opt out of having your personal information shared with third parties, or from allowing us to use your personal information for any purpose that is incompatible with the purposes for which we originally collected it or subsequently obtained your authorization. If you choose to so limit the use of your personal information, certain Unchained Capital Services or features may not be available to you.
We may store any information that we collect (personal or otherwise) ourselves or in databases owned and maintained by us, our affiliates, agents or Service Providers. If you access or use the Site or any of the other Unchained Capital Services outside of the United States, information that we collect about you may be transferred to servers inside the United States and maintained indefinitely, which may involve the transfer of information out of countries located in the European Economic Area and other parts of the world unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law or agreed by Unchained Capital and you. By allowing Unchained Capital to collect information about you, you consent to such transfer and processing of such information without restriction. We may also store some information locally on your computer or other devices. For example, we may store information as local cache so that you can open the Site and view content faster.
Although users from all over the world may access the Site and the other Unchained Capital Services, keep in mind that no matter where you live or where you happen to use our services, you consent to us processing and transferring information in and to the United States and other countries whose data-protection and privacy laws may offer fewer protections than those in your home country.
We may use and disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that has been anonymized so that it does not and cannot be used to identify a specific user, without restriction.
We may also disclose your personal information:
We will never sell or rent your personal information to third parties.
Except as otherwise provided in this policy, before Unchained Capital shares your information with any third party that is not acting as a Service Provider or an agent or representative to perform services on behalf of and under the instructions of Unchained Capital, Unchained Capital will use commercially reasonable efforts to enter into a written agreement requiring that the third party provide at least the same level of privacy protection as required hereunder.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:
We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. You may be able to opt out of receiving personalized advertisements from companies who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative or who subscribe to the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising.

You may change, correct or delete most personal information that you have provided to us through your account. Certain information (e.g., social security numbers) can only be changed by contacting us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of the Site that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an e-mail to email@example.com or write to us at: Unchained Capital, Inc., P.O. Box 662, Austin, TX 78767.
We understand that the security of your personal information is important. We take reasonable precautions to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. We store and process your personal and transactional information, including certain payment information, such as your encrypted bank account and/or routing numbers, on our computers in the United States and elsewhere in the world where Unchained Capital facilities or our service providers are located, and we protect it by maintaining physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable U.S. federal and state regulations. We use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files, and authorize access to personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfill their job responsibilities. For more information about how we store and process personal and transactional information, please go to https://unchained-capital.com/security.
Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site or the other Unchained Capital Services.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to and use of certain parts of the site and/or the other Unchained Capital Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of any of the Unchained Capital Services.
We store our customers’ personal information securely throughout the life of the customer’s Unchained Capital Account in accordance with this policy. Unchained Capital will retain your personal information for a minimum of five years or as necessary to comply with our legal obligations or to resolve disputes.
