Kingfisher’s Commitment to Online Security
Physical, electronic and managerial procedures have been employed to safeguard the security and integrity of personal information. Kingfisher encrypts billing information wherever Kingfisher requests it. All Kingfisher agents and contractors with access to personal information obtained on Kingfisher Web sites are also bound to adhere to this policy as part of their contract with Kingfisher.
Personal Information that Kingfisher May Collect Online
Kingfisher collects personal information online, including names, postal and e-mail addresses, phone and facsimile numbers and billing information. Kingfisher does not knowingly collect or maintain any personal information from children under the age of 13. In addition, no part of our sites is designed with the purpose of attracting any person under age 13.
How Kingfisher Uses Personal Information Collected Online
Unless you otherwise consent, we will use your personal information only for the purpose for which it is submitted, such as to reply to your emails, handle your comments, and process billing and business requests related to program participation, and we will use such information to provide operational notices, in program record-keeping and to conduct research on industry marketplace practices. Our research may lead to the publication of aggregate demographic data but will not result in the reporting or publication of any personal information provided to us. At certain points where personal information is collected on our site, there may be a box where you may indicate you would like to be on a mailing list to receive information about other Kingfisher products and services. This election box only appears in places where the department collecting personal information maintains such lists. At any time you can add or remove your name from a Kingfisher list by contacting us at policy.info@Kingfisherinc.com .
How Your Information May Be Saved
In order to process your request, Kingfisher handle it itself, or refer the request to another appropriate organization for handling. By completing a request form or sending us a request or inquiry, you are allowing us to forward your information to the appropriate Kingfisher organization, if necessary, and potentially also to one of Kingfisher’s vendor partners. Consumer inquiries will be forwarded to the appropriate vendor partners by email, and consumers should recognize that this method of transmission may not be secure. Without submission of the requested information, Kingfisher will not be able to process your request.
Kingfisher never sells or rents your personal or company information.
Kingfisher may release personal information under the following circumstances:
- Where release is required by law (for example, a subpoena) or regulation or is requested by a government agency;
- Where our records indicate a company may be engaged in fraudulent activity or other deceptive practices that a governmental agency should be made aware of;
- To appropriate governmental authorities, where warranted by a company’s failure to participate in the advertising self-regulatory process or respond to an online privacy complaint, or where a company fails to honor the recommendations of the National Advertising Division, Children’s Advertising Review Unit or National Advertising Review Board;
- To appropriate persons, where your communication suggests possible harm to others.
