Effective June 8, 2018
As used in this policy, “personal information” means information that would allow a party to identify you such as, for example, your name, address or location, telephone number, or email address, or information from which a person could accurately deduce your identity.
We may collect personal information at several places on the Websites, including, but without limitation, whenever you:
We use the personal information you provide to us when you send us emails, or sign up to receive our newsletter or product offerings in order to respond to your request — for example, to reply to your email, to send you communications about news and events related to Kukaret, or to describe products provided by Kukaret.
When you subscribe to a newsletter, events list, or an email discussion list, your name and email address is sent to and stored by Kukaret or its contractors. Personal information submitted as part of our email discussion lists is used for the purpose managing the discussion lists. Your name and email address may be visible to other list participants if you correspond on the list or to the general public in discussion archives. All emails sent to discussion lists may be publicly archived.
You may always unsubscribe to our newsletters, events lists, or email discussion lists. By creating an account, you agree that we may email you about issues critical to your privacy, or to confirm account changes, even if you have otherwise unsubscribed from our email lists.
When you purchase merchandise, we will use your personal information for the purpose of sending you the items or providing to you the services you purchased. This includes communication via telephone, email, US Mail, or other carrier, to confirm purchase quantities, costs, and shipping methods. Your personal information will also be used for to complete and to process your payment.
Kukaret does not store your credit card number, bank account number, or other identifiable banking information. We do store the minimum data provided by the payment processor in order to successfully complete the transaction and correlate your payment to your purchases or subscriptions, and whatever information the processor requires us to maintain to aid them in preventing fraud or abuse.
When you purchase merchandise, products, or services from Kukaret, we may use your name or your company’s name on a list of clients unless you request otherwise in writing.
In general, it is not Kukaret’s practice to disclose personal information to third parties, other than as made available on the Services in the course of their use. We may share personal information in the following instances:
Kukaret has implemented industry-standard measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of personal information that Kukaret stores and controls. However, no system can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.
Our Data Usage Policy covers how we maintain and use information about you that is collected by our Websites and server logs.
When you use the Websites, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your “IP address”) about your activities while visiting the Websites and information about the browser you are using.
We do not intentionally link browsing information to the personal information you submit to us. We use this information for internal purposes only, such as to help understand how the Websites are being used, to improve our Websites and the features we provide, and for systems administration purposes. Kukaret may use a third party analytics provider to help us collect and analyze non-personal information through operation of our Websites for those same purposes.
Kukaret automatically discards non-personal information from our server logs once we have used the information for the limited purposes noted above, under “No Linking.”
The following data are not considered Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and may be disclosed publicly:
If you are accessing or using the Services in regions with laws or regulations governing data collection, processing, transfer, use, or disclosure that differ from United States laws, please note that we may transfer your information to recipients in countries other than the country in which the information was originally collected. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws or regulations as the country in which you initially provided the information. The Websites and Services are hosted in the United States, and your personal information may be located on servers in the United States. By providing your personal data you consent to:
Kukaret intends to keep personal information accurate and up-to-date. We retain personal information no longer than is necessary to carry out the purposes described above, or as required by law. If changes need to be made to your personal information, please notify us as soon as possible. If you inform us of changes or we otherwise become aware of any factual inaccuracies in personal information, we will promptly make appropriate changes. You also have the option to update some of your personal information yourself via your Kukaret account.
Along with all other rights granted to you under applicable laws, you may at any time request to be informed of personal information that Kukaret holds. If you wish to access such personal information, you should apply in writing to Kukaret (as identified below, in the “Contact Us” section. You are generally entitled to access your personal information that Kukaret holds and to have inaccurate data corrected or removed, to the extent Kukaret still maintains it. In certain circumstances, you also may have the right to object for legitimate reasons to the processing or transfer of personal information.
We will retain your information as long as your account is active, as necessary to provide you with the Services or as otherwise set forth in this Policy. We will also retain and use this information as necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, and protect our legal rights.
To request access to the personal information we maintain, please contact
Please include your username and the email address associated with that
username. We may reply to your registered email address, rather than the
email address from which you contact us, if they are different. You are
responsible for maintaining the accuracy of the information associated with
your Kukaret account. If you no longer have access to the registered email
address, please inform us promptly. We may require additional verification,
in order to ensure that you are authorized to access the personal information
you have requested. If we cannot reasonably verify your identity, we may not
be able to provide any personally identifiable information.
