WHAT WE COLLECT
Depending upon which of our services you are utilizing, the types of non-public personal information that we may collect include:
All information entered into KLC’s online e-business applications database is stored in a secure location on KLC’s internal network and KLC takes reasonable precautions to prevent access by anyone not authorized.
We reserve the right to disclose personal data in special cases when we believe that disclosing information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with KLC Access Portals, other users of our KLC Access Portals, anyone else who could be harmed by such activities, or where we are required to do so by court order or applicable law. We reserve the right to disclose personal data when we believe, in good faith, the law requires it.
WHAT WE SHARE
We typically DO NOT sell, lease or otherwise share any aggregate non-personably identifiable data or personal information about our users with or to any third party companies or individuals. However, KLC reserves the right to provide your Personal Information to potential vendors that may sponsor or attend KLC events. If you are a city official or other public official, KLC reserves the right to provide your Personal Information to any constituency group at KLC’s discretion.
We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on KLC or its websites; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of KLC; or (c) act to protect the personal safety of the employees of KLC and other users of the website.
Use of Personal Data
Personal information provided by users may be used for marketing and informational purposes only by KLC and affiliates. Except as otherwise noted, we may utilize third party providers for marketing and informational purposes on our behalf. KLC does not rent, sell or otherwise distribute to third parties, your personal information entered using KLC Access Portals. While we use all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your information, KLC will have no liability for disclosure of any information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized acts of third parties.
Control Your Personal Information
We strive to provide users the opportunity to control their personal information that we maintain about them where possible. To access, update, or change the personal information we maintain about you, you can log in to your account, if applicable, and follow the instructions on that webpage.

We reserve the right to ask for information verifying your identity prior to disclosing any information to you. Should we ask for verification, the information you provide to verify your identify will be used only for that purpose, and all copies of this information in our possession will be destroyed when the process is complete.
If you do not wish to receive promotional emails from us, please let us know by using the opt-out response device that can be found at the bottom of every email we deliver or by contacting us at the Contact Information provided below. To help us process your request, please include sufficient information for us to identify you in our records (your email address will suffice).

CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY
Communications with KLC Access Portals containing confidential information require that a “secure session” be established. Such communication between KLC and its authorized users is encoded using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology utilizing a minimum of 128 bit encryption.
California Privacy Rights
California’s “Shine the Light” law permits users of the Site that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of PII to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us at the Contact Information provided below.
KLC Access Portals may contain links to various other websites. KLC assumes no responsibility for the content or practices of websites linked through our access portals, and such linking should not suggest or imply any affiliation or endorsement by KLC of the linked website. Please be aware that we, KLC, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites. We encourage our users to be aware of when they leave KLC Access Portals and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personal information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by KLC Access Portals.
DO NOT TRACK DISCLOSURES
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to websites with which the browser communicates. Our Site does not currently respond to these “do-not-track” signals.
Except as provided herein, we do not participate in bulk email solicitations that you have not consented to receiving (i.e., “Spam”). We do not sell or disclose user lists or email address lists to unrelated third parties. Except as otherwise provided herein, we do not share PII with any third party advertisers.
In the event KLC goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. Users will be notified via prominent notice on our website for 30 days prior to a change of ownership or control of their personal information. If, as a result of the business transition, the users’ personal information will be used in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, they will be given a choice consistent with our "Revisions to this Policy" section.
REVISIONS TO THIS POLICY
If, however, we are going to use users’ personal information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify users via email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication with the site, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our website notifying users of the change. In some cases where we provide a notice we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
