For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, "Personal Information" means information that would allow a third party to learn your identity or contact you, including, for example, your full name, address, telephone number, email address, or credit card number.

KoreVoices considers your privacy a top priority and we make sure that we go to great lengths to protect it.

We reserve the right to update this Privacy Policy from time to time.

We may also request your personal information if you choose to contact us via any "Contact" or "Help" links, sign up for any services that may be offered now or in the future, submit your story and photos online, or otherwise communicate with us in any fashion.  This information may include your name, email address, and zip code as well as your social media usernames.

If you connect to the KoreVoices website via a third-party social network such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or others, we may collect personal information from you that you provide in your profile on such social networks, including without limitation, your name, username, e-mail address, photograph(s), gender and date of birth.

We may use your personal information to provide services that you have requested, respond to your requests, and send you communications, as well as for auditing, research, and analysis to improve the products offered on our website. You always will be given the opportunity to unsubscribe from further emails in any promotional messages that we send to you.

You must be at least 18 years old to use our website and/or services and KoreVoices will not collect any information from anyone under the age of 13.  If you are a parent or guardian of a child under 13 years of age and you believe your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us at team@korevoices.com.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We may also collect non-personal information from you.  When you access our website, we may collect such things as your IP address, browser type, operating system, referring URL, service provider, and other general information about our visitors. This information, on its own, cannot usually be used to identify you. We may at times also collect automatically generated data that will help diagnose problems with our server, help administer our website, analyze trends, track user movement, or gather demographic information for purposes of improving the website and our services.

 

USE OF INFORMATION AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We may use your information:

·         To understand how users access and use our website and services, both on an aggregated and individualized basis, in order to improve our website and services and respond to user desires and preferences.

·         As necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements (including this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use), to protect or defend our rights, to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, and situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person.

If you use a story submission feature or bulletin board or chat room on the KoreVoices websites, you should be aware that any information you share may be visible to other users.  Personally identifiable information you submit in this manner can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. KoreVoices is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in this manner. For example, if you submit a story that includes information that was previously non-public, that information and data may become publicly available.

KoreVoices will not sell or rent your contact information to marketers.

To help us provide superior service, your personal information may be shared with the holder of the copyrights to the website who will take steps to safeguard it in accordance with our privacy policy.

There are also times when KoreVoices may make certain personal information about you available to companies or individuals to provide products and services to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, extend credit, fulfill customer orders, deliver products to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in our products and services, or conduct customer research or satisfaction surveys. We call them our “Service Providers.” We may share personally identifiable information with Service Providers solely as appropriate for them to perform their functions, but they may not use such information for any other purpose, except if we inform you otherwise at the time of collection. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to purchase products, have products delivered to you, receive customer service, provide us feedback to improve our products and services, or access certain services, offers, and content on the website.

At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.

We use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect information about you and about your use of our website and services.

We use this information to enhance and personalize your experience while using this website and our services, to track user activities in order to understand how users use our website, and to improve our website and services. You may have the ability to decline to permit cookies or other tracking technology, but in that case we cannot promise you that all features of the website will function properly as a result.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. MDMS and KoreVoices will not use or share this type of collected information to market directly to that person.

We use automated devices and applications, such as Google Analytics, to evaluate usage of our website. We may also use other analytic means to evaluate our services. We use these tools to help us improve our services, performance and user experiences. We do not share your personal information with these third parties.

We will abide by any “do not track” technology that you may choose to utilize, although, as described above with cookies, such technology may negatively affect the functionality of the website.
