KSE does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. For example, such personally identifiable information may be gathered from a contest or sweepstakes registration, the registration process for subscription sites or services and in connection with content submissions, community postings (e.g., chat and bulletin boards), suggestions, voting/polling activities and transactional areas.
Personally identifiable information on individual users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection. At such points of collection, the user will have the opportunity to indicate whether he or she would like to “opt out” of receiving promotional and/or marketing information about other products, services and offerings from KSE and/or any third parties. Further, notwithstanding any opt out promotional information by the user, KSE reserves the right to contact a subscriber regarding account status, changes to the subscriber agreement and other matters relevant to the underlying service and/or the information collected.
KSE may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) KSE’s rights or property, other KSE website users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. KSE may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
Additionally, users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., user name, e-mail address) on the bulletin boards or in the chat areas of the KSE sites, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in the user’s communication, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of KSE.
Upon request, KSE will allow any user to “opt out” of further promotional contacts at any time. Additionally upon request, KSE will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update/correct personal information previously submitted which the user states is erroneous to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user’s request, KSE will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user’s entry without some residual information because of backups and record of deletions.
The foregoing policies are effective as of April 2002. KSE reserves the right to change this policy at any time by notifying users of the existence of a new privacy statement. This statement and the policies outlines herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
By using this site, you signify your assent to KSE. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our sites. Your continued use of the KSE sites following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.
If you have questions or concerns regarding this Web site’s privacy statement, you should first contact the company at firstname.lastname@example.org
