Personally Non-Identifiable Information. We may automatically collect personally non-identifiable information when you visit the Sites, such as your network location, the IP address of your computer, and what sections of the Sites you visit.
The Sites may also use “clear gif” technology, commonly known as web beacons that help us manage content on the Sites by tracking what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web site users. Unlike cookies, which can be stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.
Personally Identifiable Information. We do not collect your name, email address, telephone number or other personally identifiable information (“Personal Data”) from you when you visit the KBA Site as a Visitor unless you voluntarily provide us with such information (for example, when you contact us for KBA pricing information, etc.) or you become a Subscriber of the Login Site.
We may also use your Personal Data and personally non-identifiable information collected through the Sites to help us improve the functionality of the Sites, to better understand the end users of the Sites and to provide and improve our Services.
Sharing of Your Information. We are not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without notice to you including those set forth below:
(1) Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties. We, like many businesses, sometimes hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples include mailing information, maintaining databases, processing payments and running credit and background checks. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
(2) Legal Requirements. We may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with a legal obligation, (b) protect and defend our rights or property, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Sites or the public, or (d) protect against legal liability.
(3) Business Transfers. As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
Aggregated Personal Data. We may analyze your Personal Data in aggregate form which does not identify you personally. We may share this aggregate data with our affiliates, agents, advertisers, manufacturers and business partners. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Security. We have reasonable security measures in place intended to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of personally identifiable information that we have collected from you through the Sites. However, we are unable to guarantee that the security measures we take will not be penetrated or compromised or that your personally identifiable information will remain secure under all circumstances.
Third Party Web Sites. The Sites may contain links to third-party web sites. We have no control over the privacy practices or the content of any of our business affiliates, advertisers, sponsors, or other web sites to which we provide links from our site. As such, we are not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of web sites to which our site may link. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any web site sponsors when visiting other web sites.
