The types of information that we may collect include, but are not limited to, your name, phone number, credit card or other billing information, email address, and home and business postal addresses. We also may collect information you supply to us concerning your preferences and interests expressed in the course of use of our Sites and Services.

Information we collect about you is or may be used for the following purposes: (i) to provide and improve our Sites and Services (ii) to administer your use of our Sites or Services, (iii) to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate the Sites, (iv) to better understand your needs and interests, (v) to fulfill requests you may make, (vi) to personalize your experience, (vii) to provide or offer software updates and product announcements, (viii) to carry out other purposes described to you at the time the information was collected, and (ix) to provide you with further information and offers from us or third parties that we believe you may find useful or interesting, including newsletters, marketing or promotional materials, and other information on services and products offered by us or third parties. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive any such communications, please follow the “unsubscribe” instructions provided in any of the communications sent to you or contact us at support@konghq.com.

Information We Collect Automatically

When you visit one of the Sites, our servers automatically record certain information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. This information may include, but is not limited to, your computer’s Internet Protocol address, browser type, the web page you were visiting before you came to our Site and information you search for on our Site.

Like many websites, we also use various technologies to collect information, including web beacons and cookies.  A web beacon is an electronic image that may be used on our Sites or in emails and that helps us deliver cookies, count visits, and understand usage and campaign effectiveness. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We may use “persistent cookies” to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Sites. We use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of the Sites, to better understand how you interact with the Sites and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Sites. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Sites or all functionality of our Services.

Changing or Deleting Your Information

You may review, update, correct or delete the information provided in your registration or account profile by changing your account settings or by contacting us at support@konghq.com.

Information Sharing

Aggregated Information. We may disclose aggregated information about the use of our Sites and Services to business partners, prospective investors, and others in order to demonstrate usage of the Sites and Services, spot industry trends, generate publicity for the Services and for other business purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts cannot be traced back to you personally.

Service Providers, Business Partners and Others. We may employ third-party companies and individuals to, among other things, facilitate operation, access and use of our Sites and Services, provide the Sites and Services on our behalf, perform Site-related services (including, but not limited to, data storage, maintenance services, database management, web analytics, payment processing, and improvement of the Sites’ features) or assist us in analyzing how our Sites and Services are used. These third parties may have access to information about you for purposes of performing these tasks on our behalf.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement. Kong Inc. cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal processes (including, but not limited to, subpoenas and court orders), to protect the property and rights of Kong Inc. or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop any activity we may consider to be, or that poses a risk of being, illegal, unethical, inappropriate or legally actionable.

Business Transfers. Kong Inc. may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including information we have about you, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy.

With Your Consent. Kong Inc. also may disclose information about you with your consent or at your direction.

Links to Third-Party Websites and Services

We may provide social sharing features on our Sites or links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by Kong Inc. Often, such links to other websites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our Sites or Services. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of any third parties offering any social sharing features on our Sites or operating any websites linked from our Sites that are owned or controlled by a party other than Kong Inc. Your use of any social sharing features available on our Sites and browsing and interactions on websites operated by third parties, including those which have a link on our Sites or Services, are subject to separate rules and policies. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy practices, rules and policies of all third parties offering such social sharing features and all websites to which you navigate from the Sites or Services.

Security

We employ reasonable measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access, modification, destruction, or damage of data.

While we have taken efforts to protect and secure your information, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure and therefore we cannot ensure that your information and data will not be disclosed or accessed by accidental circumstances or by the unauthorized acts of others. In the unlikely event that information about you is compromised as a result of a breach of security on our systems, Kong Inc. will promptly notify those persons whose information has been compromised, in accordance with the notification procedures set forth in this Policy, or as otherwise required by applicable law.

Children Policy

This Site is not directed to children under 18. We do not knowingly collect information from children under 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information, he or she should contact us at privacy@konghq.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with information, we will delete such information from our files.

Users around the Globe

Kong Inc. processes and stores information in the United States of America. If you reside outside the United States, information you submit to us will be transferred out of your country and into the United States. By accessing and using our Sites and Services or otherwise providing information to us, you assent to the processing, transfer and storage of information about you in and to the United States and other countries, where you may not have the same rights and protections as you do under local law.

Changes to this Policy

Please check this Policy periodically to ensure that you remain informed of our information practices, the ways that you can help protect your privacy and any changes to this Policy. Although we reserve the right to modify or supplement this Policy at any time, we will provide notice to you of such changes by revising the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Policy and, in some cases, by providing you with additional notice (such as by adding a statement to our Sites or by sending you a notification).
