KaDonk Privacy Policy

Introduction

This privacy policy last updated April 30th 2008

KaDonk is sensitive to privacy issues on the Internet. We believe it is important that you understand how we treat the information you may provide to us. Unless specifically stated otherwise, the information you provide is not shared with anyone other than KaDonk employees or authorized contractors.

This Privacy Policy applies to information collected by web addresses in the KaDonk.com and other domains owned and operated by KaDonk, hereafter referred to collectively as "KaDonk". This Privacy Policy does not apply to the use of your personal information that is collected by third parties that KaDonk does not own or control or third parties that do not support KaDonk in providing services to you.

BY USING KADONK'S WEB SITES OR SERVICES OR SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION THROUGH THE WEB SITES OR SERVICES, YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION ACCORDING TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE PROCESSED IN THE COUNTRY WHERE IT WAS COLLECTED AS WELL AS OTHER COUNTRIES (INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES) WHERE LAWS REGARDING PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE LESS STRINGENT THAN THE LAWS IN YOUR COUNTRY AND BY USING THE KADONK'S WEB SITES OR SERVICES OR SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION THROUGH THE WEB SITE OR SERVICES, YOU ARE EXPRESSLY CONSENTING TO SUCH PROCESSING.

How We Gather Information

When registering for Free or Trial versions of the LiveProject application we collect the information you provide in the registration forms. If you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we may use this information to contact you. We may also use the mailing address to send you conference brochures and other items of interest.

Some KaDonk training events are co-sponsored by other organizations. When you register for one of these events, the co-sponsoring organization may have access to your registration data. The co-sponsor may use this information for purposes related to the event but may not share it with others or use the data for marketing purposes.

KaDonk occasionally presents courses in conjunction with events sponsored by other organizations. In these cases, event registration may be handled by the event sponsor. When attempting to register via link from the KaDonk Web site, you will be presented with a web page informing you that the registration is not being handled by KaDonk. In these cases, you should familiarize yourself with the privacy policy of the sponsor organization.

KaDonk may occasionally provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our Web site. If you choose to participate, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact and demographic information such as name and address. We may share aggregated demographic information about our user base with our partners and advertisers. This information does not identify individual users.

In the event KaDonk goes through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personal information will likely be among the assets transferred. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of KaDonk or its assets may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. You hereby consent to KaDonk sharing your personal information under the above circumstances.

We may (and you authorize us to) disclose information we have collected from and about you (including personal information) if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; (b) to enforce any agreement we may have entered into with you and to enforce the Privacy Policy; or (c) to protect and defend the rights or property of us, other users, or third parties.

Log Files

As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track how visitors interact with the Web site.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. We do use cookies on our site. KaDonk may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browsers help file.

If you reject cookies, you may still use our Web site, but your ability to use some areas of our Web site, such as contests or surveys, will be limited and you may need to reenter personal information when you register for events.

How We Protect Your Personal Information

KaDonk takes reasonable steps to safeguard the security of the data you send us, by utilizing physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. Likewise, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols, and make sure you use a secure browser.

The KaDonk Web site uses encryption on all web pages where personal information is submitted. This is designed to provide some protection for the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information as it is transmitted over the Internet. However, no company, including KaDonk, can fully eliminate security risks associated with personal information.

KaDonk does not store credit card numbers on our servers. Credit card numbers are submitted to a credit card authorization service. This service provides KaDonk with credit card validation information only. We do not have direct access to your personal financial data.

You acknowledge and agree that KaDonk may employ independent contractors to help manage data services, and such contractors may have access to your data, similar to the access we give our employees. Also, KaDonk may store sales account data, including your personally identifiable information, with a third party application service provider.

Access to Your Personal Information

You have access to the information you have provided to us. To review and update your personal contact information, simply go to http://kadonk.com/UserInformation.aspx and log in with your e-mail address and password. You can update your personal information by starting LiveProject, click on the Options menu, and the User Information tab. You may also write This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Links to Other Sites

The KaDonk Web site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by KaDonk. Please be aware that KaDonk is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Web site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information, before you provide any such information to such web sites.

Information Obtained From Third Parties

KaDonk does not sell or trade your personal information. We may at times receive contact lists from other organizations. We may send mailings such as brochures to these addresses. Typically, these are one-time mailings, and the data is not entered into our database. If you want to remove yourself from the third party's database, you must contact them directly. These mailings may have a brochure code printed on the mailing label. By providing this code, we may be able to tell you from what provider we received your contact info.

Privacy of Minors

We do not intentionally collect or maintain information from persons under the age of 13.

Changes to This Privacy Statement

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, so please review it frequently. If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will amend this Privacy Policy accordingly, and place a notice on the homepage of our Web Site, (and we may also provide other notices as we deem appropriate) so that you are aware that such changes have occurred.
