This Policy is effective as of January 1, 2015.
- What Personally Identifiable Information Is Collected
We do not collect personally identifiable information on our Site unless you voluntarily provide information about yourself via an electronic mail message or by filling out one of our online forms. By “personally identifiable information,” we mean data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address or telephone number. For example, if you send us an email or send us your phone number, we may use the information you provide to follow up via telephone or email. The information you provide will be used to support your continued relationship with KSB. We may provide such information to our affiliates and agents in order to support your continued relationship with KSB. No software or hardware techniques are employed to capture a visitor’s email address or other personally identifiable information.
KSB does not monitor individual traffic patterns on our Site, and we do not use invisible images to track how you use our Site. Our hosting company may collect anonymous, aggregate information or statistics related to Site usage. These statistics indicate the total number of hits, the total number of page hits, the number of kilobytes transferred from our Site, and the IP address of the visitor. Email addresses and other personally identifiable information are not available to us, except if you choose to provide that information to us.
- How the Information You Provide Is Used
Should you send us your comments or questions via email to any email address provided on our Site, we will only share your communications with our employees, agents or affiliates most capable of addressing your questions and concerns. We will retain your communication until we have endeavored to provide you with a complete and satisfactory response and then we will either discard it or, in some cases, archive it. We will only disclose personally identifiable information if we are required to do so by law or we in good faith believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process; (b) protect and defend our rights and property; (c) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Site; or (d) protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public. We do not sell, rent or otherwise disclose our mailing lists or other personally identifiable information you may provide without your consent.
- Security of Information Sent to Us
Please note that, unless we expressly advise you otherwise, the email functionality on our Site does not provide a means for completely secure and private communications between us. Like all unencrypted Internet email communications, your email may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use email to communicate information to us that you consider to be confidential. While we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, KSB cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will use our commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our internal systems. Depending on the nature of the inquiry, your communication may be discarded or archived. If you wish, you may contact us instead via telephone at the numbers provided throughout our Site.
- Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information and Other Information Through Business Transfers
As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses, and in so doing, acquire personally identifiable information and customer information. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. Similarly, in the unlikely event that a portion or substantially all of KSB assets are sold or transferred to a third party, the personally identifiable information you have voluntarily provided to us, including your email address, would likely be one of the transferred business assets.
- Privacy Policies of Web Sites Not Under Our Control
- Access and Correction
You have a right to know about the personally identifiable information that KSB has collected as described above, including the right to correct, amend or delete the information that KSB has on file if it is incorrect. You also may change the status of whether you wish to receive KSB alerts, newsletters and communications at any time. If at any time you wish to exercise these rights, feel free to contact us at [email protected] or by phone.
By using this Site, you signify your agreement to the terms of our Policy. If you do not agree with the terms of this Policy, please do not disclose any personally identifiable information through this Site.
Please bear in mind that we may change the content or design of our Site, and consequently, this Policy at any time in the future. Notice of any revisions will be posted to this page, so please revisit this page from time to time to ensure that you are aware of any changes to it. You are responsible for reviewing this Policy periodically, and your continued use of our Site following any modifications to this Policy will be conclusively deemed acceptance of any changes.
- Governing Law
This Policy and the use of this Site are governed by Georgia law, without regard to its conflict of law provisions shall be brought before a federal court within one (1) year after the claim arises.
