Respecting the privacy of the visitors using the Skilled KC Technical Institute (“Skilled KC”) Site (the “Site”) is a priority for us. The following statements will help you understand how Skilled KC collects, uses and safeguards the personal information you provide to us on our Site.
The types of information that may be collected through this Site includes: (1) Voluntary Registration information, which is personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis (for example contact and log in information, individual or organization demographic data, you provide through voluntary registration); (2) Information about your usage of a Site; (3) Information regarding interaction with Skilled KC’s associates or programs; and (4) information about you that may be received from third parties.
In some instances, we may use a third-party payment processing system to facilitate payment, but Skilled KC will not take possession of credit card numbers, banking information, and billing addresses through the Site.
Visitors to this site may knowingly choose to register to receive email newsletter(s), program announcements, or other communications from Skilled KC. Visitors may also register to participate in Skilled KC’s events or program activities. When registering for events, or to receive communications, visitors may be asked to voluntarily provide their name, email address, telephone number, work address, and other pertinent information. Visitors may also indicate topics of interest, which will assist us in tailoring our content to your needs. Visitors who supply information will be included in the Skilled KC’s general contact database which Skilled KC will use to send emails and other communications. The Site through which you provide information in this category will present you with a consent statement that documents the purposes for which Skilled KC will use that information. Skilled KC will use the information you provide in accordance with this consent statement.
You may have your name removed from any of our emailing lists at any time, by following the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of every email.
As is true of most Web sites, Skilled KC tracks Site navigation information in order to optimize the Site and the content presented on them. In some instances, Skilled KC may also link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information Skilled KC already has about a specific user. Any Site Usage information that is related to personal information about a user is used to provide users with feedback about their experiences on the Site and to highlight information that a specific user may find interesting or informative. Skilled KC may also link this information to a particular individual or combine it with personal information if Skilled KC has determined that it needs to identify a user because of safety or security issues or to comply with legal requirements.
The Site Interaction Information Skilled KC may collect could include the following types of information.
Skilled KC collects personal information about individuals that participate in Skilled KC programs, attend Skilled KC events, or take a Skilled KC issued survey. In some instances, you will provide this information to Skilled KC yourself, but in other instances Skilled KC personnel may observe and/or document this information in the course of your interactions. In addition, Skilled KC may collect personal information about individuals with whom it engages to discuss programmatic activities and/or potential collaborations. For example, if you attend a meeting with a Skilled KC associate and you discuss information about a potential collaboration, a Skilled KC associate may document the content of that discussion as well as contact information to enable the associate to follow up with you about that discussion.
Personal information that falls into this category is used to further the programs in which the individual participates, to advance potential collaborations, to identify programmatic initiatives in which an individual may want to participate, and to identify constituents with which Skilled KC should engage.If you consent to Skilled KC’s use of this data for broader interactions with you, Skilled KC will treat this information as Voluntary Registration data (see Section II (1) above) to enhance its interactions with you. Otherwise, Skilled KC will limit its use of the data in this category to the facilitation of the interaction(s) you have with the Skilled KC Program or associate. Skilled KC may ask for your consent to have broader interactions, but you are under no obligations to provide that consent.
On occasion, Skilled KC may append or match personal information Skilled KC has collected with other information Skilled KC receives from third parties. This information could include contact information, economic, or demographic information, interest or affinity information, and/or other data that may help Skilled KC identify specific individuals as constituents with which Skilled KC should interact to advance its charitable purposes. Skilled KC will only collect and use third party information as set forth in this Section II (4) if you have consented to Skilled KC collecting such third-party information.
Skilled KC does not rent, sell, or share any personal information about individual users with any unaffiliated third party except (i) to operate the Sites, (ii) to provide the products or services you’ve requested, and (iii) to send you information consistent with Skilled KC’s purpose(s).
Skilled KC occasionally retains other companies to provide services on our behalf, including packaging and mailing, answering customer questions about products or services, sending and tracking postal mail, or email and processing data. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
In limited instances, Skilled KC may retain contractors to conduct charitable research on its behalf that is related to Skilled KC’s purposes (for example to conduct a survey or evaluate Skilled KC research information). In these instances, Skilled KC may provide access to the contractor to perform the research. Any data shared as set forth in this section will only be disclosed with the expectation that the information be held in confidence by the contractor, that it be used solely for Skilled KC’s benefit, and that the third party is not entitled to use the personal information for its own purposes.
Skilled KC reserves the right to disclose your personally identifiable information to respond to a subpoena, court order, or other legal process, to defend Skilled KC against legal claims, or if Skilled KC determines it is necessary to investigate or take action in connection with activities that Skilled KC suspects are illegal, threaten the safety of any person, or are in violation of these Terms.
