We also collect personal information to enhance your visit to this site or our Business Partners’ sites and deliver more individualized content, advertising and/or offers.  For example, we may use personal information to communicate with you regarding this Privacy Policy or regarding surveys, sweepstakes, contests, special events, promotions and other matters.  We may combine information collected online with information we have collected through other means.

Do Not Track Protocols

The major browsers have attempted to implement the draft “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (“W3C”) in their latest releases. As this standard has not been finalized, the web site is not compatible with DNT and so we do not recognize DNT settings.

We do not control the setting of these cookies. If you are a user of the services of any of those service providers and would like to know more about what kind of data may be collected through such social plugins and how such data may be used by the respective service provider, please check the privacy policy of those service providers, including, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

California Residents

California Law  provides residents of California a number of rights as they relate to personal information. These are the “right to know”, the “right to delete”, and the “right to opt out”.
Right to Know. You may request KSM provide you the specific pieces of personal information that KSM has about you; categories of personal information we have collected about you; categories of sources from which the personal information is collected; categories of personal information that KSM sold or disclosed for a business purpose about you; categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold or disclosed for a business purpose; and the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.   
Right to Delete. California law gives residents a limited right to request deletion of their personal information. However, this right is limited by a number of exceptions. Fundamentally, if KSM has a permissible need to retain personal information, we are not under an obligation to delete such information, even when requested. Generally, we retain personal information so we may complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected, provide a good or service requested by you, or reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform a contract between us and you; detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; or prosecute those responsible for that activity; enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with KSM; comply with a legal obligation; or otherwise use your personal information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information. As such, we generally do not accept requests to delete personal information in its entirety. However, we will respond to requests to remove personal information from some of our systems as a part of a request to close or otherwise disable a membership account.  
Right to Opt Out. KSM shares personal information  with Business Partners for marketing purposes and to permit our Business Partners to collect data directly from you. You may choose to opt out of the sharing of your personal information with third parties for marketing purposes at any time by submitting a request in writing to our contact address below or using one of the Opt Out tools noted in the “Behavioral Advertising” Section above. Please note that this opt out does not prohibit disclosure made for non-behavioral advertising purposes.
Designating an Authorized Agent. California law permits California residents to designate an agent to manage their rights under California law. If you would like to designate an agent to manage your privacy preferences, you may do so using the mechanisms noted below under “Exercising California privacy rights”.
Non-discrimination. California law does not permit KSM to discriminate against you because you exercised any your rights under this title, including, but not limited to, by: denying you access to goods or services; charging different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties; providing a different level or quality of goods or services; suggesting that you will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.    
Exercising California privacy rights. If you are a California resident and would like to exercise any of your rights you may do so by emailing us at [email protected] [insert toll-free number] . You may also contact us at the mailing address set forth above. Please note that with respect to any request we reserve the right to seek additional personal information in order to verify your identity and your or your agent’s rights to the data subject to your request.
