KMS Designs privacy policy

Katherine Swift understands your right to privacy and that visitors want to control the use of their personal information.  The privacy policy below details the measures taken by Katherine Swift and KMS Designs to protect your privacy in connection with your use of this site and services.

ACCEPTANCE OF PRIVACY POLICY

Your use of this site, including any dispute concerning privacy, is subject to this privacy policy and the terms of service. By using this site, you are accepting the practices set out in this privacy policy.  Katherine Swift and KMS Designs reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time. Please check the revision date at the bottom of this page to determine if the policy has been modified since you last reviewed it. Your continued use of any portion of our site following posting of the updated privacy policy will constitute your acceptance of the changes.

 
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

When you visit our website, the web hosting server recognizes your navigational information, including non-personally identifiable information (i.e. domain type, browser version, service provider and IP address), but not your email address. This information is shared with third party services, such as Google, to allow KMS Designs to gather broad information about visitors and their browsing patterns on the KMS Designs website.

KMS Designs collects information volunteered by visitors. This may include, but is not limited to, name and address, and telephone number, for the purpose of completing a sale to a customer. KMS Designs handles online credit card transactions through Paypal and does not store any customer credit card information within its confines. A copy of Paypal's privacy policy may be found here. Orders taken by Katherine Swift and KMS Designs via phone will include the above mentioned information, plus a credit card number and billing address for the purchaser. The purchaser may be asked to provide an email or physical address for inclusion on a mailing list. Visitors to the KMS Designs website may also submit their information voluntarily to be included on an email and/or physical mailing address list. Email addresses are collected by a third party email marketing company, Constant Contact. Their privacy policy may be found on the Constant Contact website. We do NOT sell or rent our visitor or customer email addresses or make them available to other organizations for marketing purposes.

 
WHY DO WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?

The navigational information we collect tells us about the use of our website by visitors, including the areas of our site that are most visited or the time of a last visit to a page on our website. The navigational information helps us better understand a visitor's experience and improve upon that experience by recognizing and delivering more of the features, services and products our visitors prefer. 

The information we collect is also used to acknowledge and deliver items that customers order, to improve the content of our website, to notify visitors who request specific information about updates to our website (i.e. new artwork in a specific category), and to contact visitors (with permission) for our own marketing purposes.

The information we collect may be disclosed if we are legally required to do so at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our website and applicable laws, or to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our website.

WHEN DO WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?

Information is only collected when a customer makes a purchase from KMS Designs (either online or by phone), or when a user submits their information for inclusion on the KMS Designs mailing list.

HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?

E-mail Communications. We do NOT send unsolicited commercial email, otherwise known as "spam." We do NOT send email marketing communications to a visitor provided email address unless the intended recipient specifically opts in to receive such communications from us. We do NOT sell or rent our visitor or customer email addresses or make them available to other organizations for marketing purposes. 

Postal mail Communications.  Information may be sent through the U.S. postal mail system providing information about new features, announcements, new artwork, special promotions and discounts.  Users and subscribers may opt out of postal mail options by contacting Katherine via phone (352-335-4859) or email (kmsdesigns@hotmail.com).  We do NOT sell or rent our visitor or customer postal mail addresses or make them available to other organizations for marketing purposes.

Telephone Communications.  Telephone communication is only used in cases where it is needed regarding orders placed.  We do NOT sell or rent our customer phone numbers or make them available to other organizations for marketing purposes.

WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION WITH?

We will not share your personally identifiable information with third parties (aside from entities that perform services for us, such as processing credit card payments, that either are bound to comply with our privacy policy or have privacy policies that protect your information) unless you have "opted-in" to such sharing.

However, we may disclose information you provide if required to do so by law or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with legal process served on us; (2) protect and defend our rights or property; or (3) act in an emergency to protect someone's safety.

As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets, and, depending upon the transaction, your personally identifiable information may be one of the transferred assets. In the event that we are acquired by another company, your personal information may be part of the assets transferred to the acquiring party. In the event of said transfer, CowArtandmore.com will attempt to insure that the privacy of your information is maintained by the acquiring party.

WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS TO CONTROL THE USE OF YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?

You can help us maintain the accuracy of your profile by notifying us when you change your address, phone number or e-mail address. If at any time you wish to update your information or stop receiving communication from us, you may send an email to kmsdesigns@hotmail.com. Email list subscribers can change their subscription preferences at any time by clicking on the appropriate link that is included at the bottom of every email.

WHAT ABOUT PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION OF MINORS?

Our site is not directed to children under the age of 13. We assume products purchased through credit card means are purchased by adults or minors supervised by a parent or guardian. We respect the privacy of parents and children and are committed to complying with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"). If a parent believes that a child has provided us with his or her personal information, the parent can contact us via e-mail, phone or postal mail as listed below.

WHAT ELSE SHOULD YOU KNOW ABOUT YOUR PRIVACY?

Although we will exercise reasonable care in providing secure transmission of information between your computer and our servers, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us over the Internet and we accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure.

Our site may contain hyperlinks and pointers to internet sites maintained by third parties. These links are provided for your reference only. Katherine does not control, operate or endorse in any respect information, products or services on such third-party sites and are not responsible for their content. Many third-party sites have their own privacy policies that differ from ours. This privacy policy only covers our site and does not cover any other site. While we make every effort to keep your information secure, we do not control the policies of other sites.
