KGardens ("KGardens") operates kgarden.com and may operate other websites. It is KGarden's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, KGardens collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. KGarden's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how KGarden's visitors use its website. From time to time, KGardens may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
KGardens also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on kgarden.com blogs/sites. KGardens only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to KGarden's websites choose to interact with KGardens in ways that require KGardens to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that KGardens gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at kgarden.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with KGardens are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, KGardens collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with KGardens. KGardens does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
KGardens may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. KGardens may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, KGardens does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
KGardens discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on KGarden's behalf or to provide services available at KGarden's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using KGarden's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. KGardens will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, KGardens discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when KGardens believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of KGardens, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an KGardens website and have supplied your email address, KGardens may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with KGardens and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. KGardens takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If KGardens, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that KGardens goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of KGardens may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
