We regard personally identifiable information as information that someone can use to identify or contact you in person, such as your real name, telephone number, birth date, email address, or physical mailing address.

In addition, we may provide links to other services and on occasion to other sites that may interest you. All of these sites operate independently of Unhyped and they have their own privacy or security practices. For your best on-line experience, we encourage you to review their policies before submitting any personal information to them.
