For FARPA Compliance, see FARPA Compliance

We at Blackhorn Associates, Inc. (“Blackhorn,” “we,” “us,” or “our”") created this privacy notice (“Privacy Notice”) because we know that you care about how information you provide to us is used and shared. This Privacy Notice relates to our collection and use of your information through our website located at www.kipinhall.com (the “Site”).

By visiting our Site, you are agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Notice and the accompanying Terms of Use. Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Notice shall have the meaning set forth in our Terms of Use.

If you do not want us to collect, use and share your personal information as described in this Privacy Notice, please do not provide us with any of your personal information.

Information We Collect

We do not collect any personal information from you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. If you register with us, you will be required to provide us with your name and email address. If you register or sign-in through Facebook Connect or another social media site, you are authorizing us to collect, store, and use, in accordance with this Privacy Policy, any and all information which you authorized the social media site to release to us through their respective Application Programming Interface or API. This information may include, without limitation, your first and last name, social media usernames, profile picture, unique identifiers and access tokens, and e-mail address. In this Privacy Notice, we refer to this information as “Personal Information.”

Like most web sites, we use automatic data collection technology when you visit the Site to record information that identifies your computer, to track your use of the Site, and to collect certain basic information about you and your surfing habits. This information includes information about your operating system, your IP addresses, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, keywords, date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, what sections of a website you visit, and similar information concerning your use of the Site and the Services (the “Usage Information”).

We collect this Usage Information by using cookies and pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear gifs). Cookies are small packets of data that a web site stores on your computer’s hard drive so that your computer will “remember” information about your visit. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web site users. You can reject cookies by following the directions provided in your Internet provider’s “help” file. If you reject cookies, you may still visit the Site, but may not be able to use some areas of the Site and/or the Services.

We do not collect Personal Information in this way, but if you’ve provided us with Personal Information we may associate that information with the information that is collected automatically. Automatic data collection may be performed on our behalf by our services providers.

How We Use Your Information.

We will use your Personal Information for the following purposes:

  • To respond to your inquiries and contact you about changes to this Site;
  • To send you e-mails regarding our products and/or services you are receiving, and for billing and collection purposes;
  • For any other purposes disclosed at the time the information is collected or to which you consent; and
  • As otherwise specifically described in this Privacy Notice.

If we or all or substantially all of our assets are acquired, we expect that the information that we have collected, including Personal Information, would be transferred along with our other business assets.

We may disclose user information to government authorities, and to other third parties when compelled to do so by government authorities, at our discretion, or otherwise as required by law, including but not limited to in response to court orders and subpoenas. We also may disclose user information when we have reason to believe that someone is or may be causing injury to or interference with our rights or property, other users of this Site, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

How We Protect Your Information

We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the Personal Information and the Usage Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the Internet. In particular, e-mail sent to or from us may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e- mail.

Your Choices

If you wish to stop receiving e-mails from us, you may do so by visiting this link or by e-mailing info@kipinhall.com. You may also choose to unsubscribe from our emails by following the instructions in the bottom of the email.

Links

This Site may contain content, services, advertising and other materials that link to web sites operated by third parties. We have no control over those other sites, and this Privacy Notice does not apply to them.

Important Notice to Non-U.S. Residents.

The Site is operated in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By providing us with any information, you consent to this transfer.

Children

We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13 through the Site. If you are under 13, please do not give us any Personal Information. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Notice by instructing their children to never provide Personal Information through any website without their permission. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided Personal Information to us, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.

We may change this Privacy Notice from time to time, and will post any changes on the Site as soon as they go into effect.
