All personal information is private and confidential.  Any personal information we gather through our online forms or information that you otherwise provide to us for purposes of conducting business will not be released to third parties without your written consent.    We do not sell client personal information.

Profile

We may store information that we collect through cookies, log files, and/or clear gifs to create a profile of our users.  A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users that details their viewing preferences.  Consequently, collected information is tied to the user’s personally identifiable information to provide offers and improve the content of the site for the user. This profile is used to tailor a user’s visit to our websites, and to direct pertinent information to them.  We do not share your profile with other third parties.

What we share

We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on KathamEco or its websites; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of KathamEco; or (c) act to protect the personal safety of the employees of KathamEco and other users of the websites.

Use of Personal Data

Personal information provided by users may be used for marketing and informational purposes only by KathamEco and its subsidiaries and affiliates. KathamEco does not rent, sell or otherwise distribute to third parties, your personal information entered on this site. While we use all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your information, KathamEco will have no liability for disclosure of any information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized acts of third parties.  The information we collect is only for our own internal purposes such as:

  • Order Processing
  • To personalize our customer’s experiences
  • To improve our website
  • To improve our customer service
  • To send periodic promotional emails

We use “cookies” on this site.  A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site.  For example, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time when on our site.  Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our customer to enhance their experience on our site.  Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.

Children's Privacy

We believe that protecting the privacy of children is very important.  Our websites are not designed to attract individuals under the age of 13.  Use of our websites is restricted to those over the age of 13.  In accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we do not collect or store any personal information, even in aggregate, about children under the age of 13.  If we discover we have received any information from a child under the age of 13 in violation of this policy, we will delete that information immediately.  If you believe that KathamEco has any information from or about anyone under the age of 13, please contact us at the contact points specified below.

California Residents

As of January 1, 2005, California law permits users that reside in California to request certain information regarding the disclosure of personal information collected by KathamEco to third parties for marketing purposes.

Linked Sites

Our websites may contain links to various other websites.  KathamEco assumes no responsibility for the content or practices of websites linked through our websites and such linking should not suggest or imply any affiliation or endorsement by KathamEcoe of the linked website. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.  This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by our websites.

Choice/Opt-out

Our users are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having their information used for marketing and information communications.  Users can change or opt-out on how they are contacted at any time by writing to the contact points specified below.

Business Transitions

If KathamEco goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition, or sales of a portion of its assets, your personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. You will be notified via prominent notice on our website for 30 days prior to a change of ownership or control of your personal information. If, as a result of the business transition, your personally identifiable information will be used in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, you will be given choice consistent with the one outlined in “Revisions to this Policy” (below).

Security

We follow industry standards and practices to safeguard all of the information, anonymous and personal, that we collect.  If users have any questions about the security at our websites, users can contact us at the contact points specified below.

Data Security

The site incorporates physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, including Secure Sockets layer (“SSL”) for all financial transactions through the site.  We use SSL encryption to protect your personal information online, and we also take several steps to protect your personal information in our facilities.  Access to your personal information is restricted.  Only employees who need access to your personal information to perform a specific job are granted access to your personal information.  Finally, we rely on third-party service providers for the physical security of some of our computer hardware.  We believe that their security procedures are adequate.  For example, when you visit the site, you access servers that are kept in a secure physical environment, behind a locked cage and an electronic firewall.

While we use industry-standard precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security.  100% complete security does not presently exist anywhere online or offline.

Revisions to this Policy

KathamEco reserves the right to periodically revise this policy.  Please check this page periodically for changes.  The document revision date displayed below will indicate when this policy was last revised.  If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.  We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

If we are planning to use your personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify you via email. You will have a choice as to whether or not you allow us to continue to use and maintain your information under our new policy. Of course, if you have opted out of all communication with us or deleted/deactivated your account, you will not be contacted and your personal information will not be used or maintained under the new policy.
