Privacy Policy

Last updated: August 2019

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes the manner in which KenSci, Inc. (“KenSci”, “we,” “our” or “us”) and our website at www.kensci.com (the “Site”), as well as all related websites, networks, applications, and other services provided by us and on which a link to this Policy is displayed (collectively, together with the Site, our “Service”) use and collect data from individuals (collectively referred to as “information”).

Please read the following carefully to understand how we collect and use your information. By using our site and services, you acknowledge you have read and understood this privacy policy.

Information We Collect:

  • User-provided Information. When you use the Service, we may collect information about you, including your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, your date of birth, geographic area, or preferences and we may link this information with other information about you. You may provide us with information in various ways on the Service. For example, you provide us with information when you register for an account, use the Service, make a purchase on the Service, or send us customer service-related requests.We may also collect and use the information that you will provide to us in connection with a job opening or a general enquiry regarding employment opportunities with us, for instance information included in your CV, resume or other details of your employment history.
  • Cookies and Automatically Collected Information. When you use the Service, we may send one or more cookies – small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your device. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Service. Please review your web browser “Help” file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete, or choose not to accept, cookies from the Service, you may not be able to utilize the features of the Service to their fullest potential.We may also automatically record certain information from your device by using various types of technology, including “clear gifs” or “web beacons.” This automatically collected information may include your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after you use our website, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the site. We also may use these technologies to collect information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message. This information is gathered from all users and may be connected with other information about you.
  • Location Information. We may obtain information about your physical location, such as geolocation features in your device, or by inference from other information we collect (for example, your IP address indicates the general geographic region from which you are connecting to the Internet).
  • Third Party Web Beacons and Third Party Buttons. We may display third-party content on the Site, including third-party advertising. Third-party content may use cookies, web beacons, or other mechanisms for obtaining data in connection with your viewing of the third-party content on the Service. Additionally, we may implement third party buttons (such as Facebook “like” or “share” buttons) that may function as web beacons even when you do not interact with the button. Information collected through third-party web beacons and buttons is collected directly by these third parties, not by KenSci. Information collected by a third party in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies.
