K9JYM has a firm commitment to privacy. We take your privacy concerns seriously and make every effort to address them as we strive to offer our site visitors a high quality, interactive and personalized experience. We have adopted the following policy that explains our position on information gathering and how we intend to use and share any information we collect.
What information we collect and how it is used
Registering for classes or signing up for the K9JYM Newsletter requires you to provide certain Personally Identifiable Information, such as your name, e-mail address, and street address.
Passive data collection and use
Like most Web sites, K9JYM.com collects and logs information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to you, such as your IP address, the name and location of your Internet Service Provider, the type and version of your browser, the length of time that you stay on K9JYM.com, your click-stream data, the location that referred you to K9JYM.com and the average number of pages viewed. Your IP address is the identifier assigned to your particular computer when you access the Internet. Depending on how you connect to the Internet, your IP address may always be the same, or it may change each time you access the Internet. Note that logging your IP address does not in and of itself provide us with your name, e-mail address or home or work address. We use this log information for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes and may also use it to gather general demographic information about you such as your general location and your Internet Service Provider. In order to better provide our services to you and to develop member profiles that enable us to focus our site on your interests, we may correlate this log information with other information about you, such as your registration information.
Most standard Web browsers contain a feature called "cookies," which allow a Web site to place information about a user's visit to that Web site in a small data text file that is stored on the user's computer. Our use of cookie technology will likely be transparent to you and is used to recognize you and hold information from one visit to the next in an effort to increase your ease of use of K9JYM.com and to allow us to better understand how people use our site through click-stream analysis. For example, cookies are used to store your member name and password sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit. You can turn the cookies feature off by using your browser preference options.
Use of personally identifiable information
Personally Identifiable Information may be accessed by the user who entered it, by K9JYM.com personnel, and by certain third parties, such as those who provide technical support to K9JYM.com. We ask these third parties to keep any personal information supplied by us confidential.
We also reserve the right to disclose Personally Identifiable Information when deemed necessary or appropriate to comply with the law, respond to claims, protect our computer systems and customers, ensure the integrity and operation of our business and systems, or protect the rights, property or safety of K9JYM.com, its affiliates, or others.
