THE INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT.
User-provided Personal Information. When you use the Website, you may provide and we may collect what is generally called “personally identifiable” information, such as your name, email address, mailing address, mobile phone number, and demographic information. For example, you may provide us with personally identifiable information when you fill out forms or fields on our website, when you participate in online surveys, when you contact us or request information about us, the Website (whether by email or other means), when you submit Visitor Content, and when you register for an account.
User-provided Financial, Professional and Health Information. When you use certain portions of the Website you may be asked to fill in and submit a form that collects, in addition to your personally identifiable information, your personal financial information, your professional information, and any additional information you choose to provide in the free-text portions of our request forms.
“COOKIES” INFORMATION. When you use the Website, we may send one or more cookies – small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your device. KiloWhat may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Website. Persistent cookies can be removed. Please review your web browser “Help” file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete, or choose not to accept, cookies from the Website, you may not be able to utilize the features of the Website to their fullest potential.
“AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED” INFORMATION. When you use the Website or open one of our HTML emails, we may automatically record certain information from your web browser by using different types of technology, including “clear gifs” or “web beacons.” This “automatically collected” information may include your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after the Website, the pages you view on the Website, your actions on the Website, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the Website. This information may be gathered for all visitors to the Website.
THIRD PARTY WEB BEACONS AND THIRD PARTY BUTTONS. KiloWhat may also implement third party content, or advertising on the Website that may use clear gifs or other forms of web beacons, which allow the third party content provider to read and write cookies to your browser in connection with your viewing of the third party content on the Website. Additionally, we may implement third party buttons (such as Facebook “like” or “share” buttons) that may allow such third party to collect information about you through such third party’s browser cookies, even when you do not interact with the button. Information collected through web beacons and buttons is collected directly by the third party, and KiloWhat does not participate in that data transmission. Information collected by a third party in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies.
HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT. Your information is an integral part of our operations, and we use it in a variety of ways in providing the Website and operating our business. For example:
WHEN WE DISCLOSE INFORMATION. KiloWhat discloses your information, including personally identifiable information, in a variety of circumstances in connection with providing the Website and the operation of our business. For example:
KiloWhat also reserves the right to disclose your information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability; to protect KiloWhat and others from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses or activity; to investigate and defend ourselves against any third party claims or allegations; to assist government enforcement agencies; to protect the security or integrity of the Website; or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of KiloWhat, the Website's visitors, or others.
If you submit a Request, a third party may directly contact you with quotes or information via telephone, fax, and email. You may also receive telemarketing calls as a result of submitting the request, even if you are on the National Do No Call Registry or any other similar registry.
Please note that if you do not want your personally identifiable information shared as described above, then you should not submit a Request. Once your submit a Request on the Website and we share your information as described above in connection with your Request, you will not have the opportunity to opt out of the disclosure of your information in connection with that Request.
