Your privacy is important to us at kanger.dev. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. By using our website and providing us with personal information, you agree to these policies.
State Law & Accompanying Rights
Please understand that you may have additional rights originating from state laws based on where you live. These state-based rights may augment, strengthen, or otherwise complement any privacy rights you have inherently or under federal law. Our policy is to fully comply with the privacy policies of every jurisdiction in which we operate. Accordingly, you are free to use our contact information to reach us at any time to assert any state rights.
Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important to us. Therefore, our website will never collect or maintain information from those we actually know are under 18, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 18.
According to our Terms of Service and Conditions of Use, children under 18 are not allowed to use our website or access our services. It is not our intention to offer products or services to minors, and we assume parental controls are in place.
Collection of Personal Information
When you visit our website, we may log the IP address used to access it, as well as the dates and times of access. We use third-party data analytics tools to analyze trends, administer the website, track user movement with heatmaps, and gather broad demographic information for internal use, such as statistical assessments and website improvement. Importantly, any recorded IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Other information may also be collected by Kanger, which is typical of most websites. For example, the source that referred you to our website is generally known. Likewise, your duration on our website and the destination when you leave our website can also be tracked. Other common data collected includes the type of operating system and web browser used to access our website. This data collection helps produce a better end-user experience with dynamic content.
At times, you may be the direct source of information, such as when you comment on a blog post, reply to an email (whether a broadcast message or autoresponder), provide an email address, complete a survey, share and like a resource from our website, or request an OTP (sms/email). Likewise, purchases necessarily involve collecting certain information, such as credit card information, PayPal addresses, your physical address for billing and/or shipping, phone number, and so on. Refusing to provide some of this information may prevent us from providing you with the products or services you have requested.
A prime example of limited access to our website is when some Kanger.dev content is protected by a username and password. Whether the username and password is generated by our website or created by you, it will almost always be connected with other information related to or connected with you. This is because much protected internet content is subscription-based, often requiring payment. Thus, the username and password must necessarily be linked to your other account data. Usernames and passwords, by their very nature, should be kept private.
Handling of Personal Information
Please note that any personal information you provide to others, besides us or our vendors, is entirely optional. For example, you might disclose something in a blog post comment. That "private" information is now "public," and we have no control over it. Similarly, if you share information with any other third party that does not function as a service provider to us, that information is beyond our control and is subject to the policy that the party has in place.
Our primary reason for collecting personal and private information from you is simply to conduct our business. We may use this information internally to better serve you. Therefore, we see no reason to share your personal information with other parties and outside interests unless you have authorized us to do so. Of course, there are instances where your information is stored with third-party service providers, such as email service providers, as they provide services that are industry-leading in quality and security and are far more beneficial to our end-users than attempting such services "in-house." However, you are never required to deal with any such third party directly, they are limited in how they use your information, and they cannot sell or transfer it to others in any way.
However, your information comprises part of an overall whole. This aggregate information may be used to understand our overall user base. Furthermore, we may share this information about our website visitors as a whole, not individually, with third parties for various purposes, at our sole discretion.
At Kanger, we are staunch privacy advocates. Nevertheless, there may be times when we are forced to abandon these ideals. Just as major search engines face ongoing compulsion to provide data against their will, the same may occur with our Kanger.dev website. Illegal activity or other serious acts or allegations could create legal liability for our website. In those cases, we reserve the right to share your information, or we may be compelled to do so by law. On the other hand, there may be times when we would need to share your information to protect our own interests. For instance, in cases of suspected or alleged copyright infringement or other intellectual property violations, it may be necessary to share personal information.
