Thank you for visiting the Kane Advisors website. This website provides general information about the fraud detection and related services that Kane Advisors offers, and other general information and resources.
Kane Advisors respects your privacy and is committed to collecting, maintaining and using personal information about you responsibly. We comply with all applicable privacy and data protection laws. This Policy describes how your personal information will be treated as you use the Kane Advisors Site and services. This Policy does not apply to information provided to us in the course of formal business relationships or which is protected by confidentiality or any other applicable privilege or protection. Nothing in this Policy should be construed to create a formal business relationship with visitors to our website or, conversely, to detract from any of the protections resulting from such formal business relationships.
1. Information Collected When You Visit the Kane Advisors Site.
Generally, the Kane Advisors Site collects your personally identifiable information when you submit it voluntarily. For instance, you may submit (and we may collect) your name, e-mail address or similar information when you choose to submit it to us. We may also collect non-personally identifiable information when you access and use the Kane Advisors Site. We are not responsible for the data collection or privacy practices or policies of any third-party websites that we may link to, or that may link to the Kane Advisors Site. You are encouraged to read the privacy policies of every website that you visit.
You may generally visit the Kane Advisors Site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself except as set forth in this section. Like many websites, our server logs may capture information regarding your operating system, browser software, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, and the full Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) clickstream to, through and from our website, including the date and time. We may use this information to improve the services we provide, to monitor and improve the performance of our servers, to administer the Kane Advisors Site and to protect and defend our rights, property or safety (or that of our clients and other users of the Kane Advisors Site). If you view a program on the Kane Advisors Site, the time that you watched the program will be logged. This information helps us determine which videos our clients and other visitors consider useful.
3. Use of Information Submitted Through the Kane Advisors Site.
Most of the personal information collected by Kane Advisors is provided by you voluntarily on the Kane Advisors Site, and is therefore collected with your permission. We will use that information for the purpose for which it was collected (e.g., asking to be contacted by Kane Advisors, registering for an event, requesting publications, signing up for a mailing list, administering the Kane Advisors Site, etc.). The remaining personal information is collected for Kane Advisors’ legitimate business purposes (e.g., to monitor and improve the quality of the Kane Advisors Site and our services, to protect and defend Kane Advisors’ rights, property or safety or that of our clients and other users of the Kane Advisors Site, etc.).
Your information may be accessed by third party service providers who will process that information solely for our benefit and in accordance with our instructions, as described herein. We will not, however, provide your personal information to, or share it with, any third party for their own marketing purposes, except in connection with requests that you make that clearly involve third parties, such as publications produced by third parties or events that are presented or sponsored by third parties.
If you apply for a job with Kane Advisors, any information that you submit will be maintained in Kane Advisors’ applicant database, which is managed by its trusted third party service providers. Kane Advisors personnel and agents involved in the recruitment process may then access your information. Such information will not otherwise be shared externally, and it will not be used for marketing purposes other than its possible use to recruit you to join Kane Advisors.
Kane Advisors will take reasonable steps to avoid unauthorized changes to any personally identifiable information that you submit through the Kane Advisors Site. For so long as Kane Advisors elects to continue to provide the Kane Advisors Site, and provided that you comply with all agreements concerning use thereof, we will make all reasonable efforts to provide you with online access to your personal information so that you may view, update or correct it. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you access or enabling you to make corrections.
