Information We May Collect

Personally Identifiable Information

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personally identifiable information” means any information by which someone can be personally identified, including name, address, telephone number, email address, and other information incidental to providing goods or services (also referred to herein as “personal information”). We collect personally identifiable information from you only when you voluntarily provide us with this information, such as when establishing an account, contacting us with a question or comment, utilizing an “Email to a Friend” feature, or signing up to receive emails about our latest products and services.

Browsing Information and Cookies

When you visit the Site, our web servers may automatically recognize certain non-personally identifiable information about you, such as your domain name, access provider, IP address and browser language. The Site also uses a browser feature known as a cookie, which assigns a unique identification to your computer. The information collected from cookies allows us to provide better customer service to you and to improve features of our Site in a variety of ways, including by determining whether you have visited the Site in the past and which pages of our Site you have visited.

If you are not comfortable with the idea of your information being used in this way, most computer systems and web browsers offer privacy settings and options, such as disabling cookies or opting for “Do Not Track” features. [We do not override these settings or options.] However, in order to access certain content, features, services, products or benefits of the Site, you may be required to provide us with certain information, including some types of personally identifying information. If you do not wish to provide such information through the Site, or if you opt to utilize the aforementioned privacy features of your computer system or web browser, you may be unable to obtain certain content, features, services, products or benefits of the Site.

How We Use Your Information

By providing personally identifiable information to us, we are better able to match your interests. The Kuni Foundation may use your personally identifiable information to communicate with you and to send you information by email, postal mail, or other means about our work.

[In order to better serve you, we may combine information you provide to us on the Site with information from third parties, including demographic or public information]. The Site uses interfaces with social media websites or platforms that are owned and/or controlled by third parties, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and others (“Social Media Sites”). If you choose to “like” or share information from the Site through any Social Media Sites, if you are a member of a Social Media Site, the interfaces on our Site may allow the Social Media Site to connect your website visit to your Personal Data. The information that you share with the Social Media Sites will be governed by the specific privacy policies and terms of service of the Social Media Sites and not by this Privacy Policy. You should review the privacy policy of that Social Media Site before choosing to access and use any Social Media Sites, including interacting with our pages on those sites.
