Like most website operators, Kelowna Rock School collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Kelowna Rock School’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Kelowna Rock School’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Kelowna Rock School may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Kelowna Rock School also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Kelowna Rock School does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Kelowna Rock School’s websites choose to interact with Kelowna Rock School in ways that require Kelowna Rock School to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Kelowna Rock School gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a profile at kelownarockschool.com to provide an email address. Kelowna Rock School collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Kelowna Rock School. Kelowna Rock School does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Kelowna Rock School may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Kelowna Rock School may monitor the most popular profiles on the kelownarockschool.com site. Kelowna Rock School may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Kelowna Rock School does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Kelowna Rock School discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Kelowna Rock School’s behalf or to provide services available at Kelowna Rock School’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Kelowna Rock School’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Kelowna Rock School will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Kelowna Rock School discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Kelowna Rock School believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Kelowna Rock School, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Kelowna Rock School website and have supplied your email address, Kelowna Rock School may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Kelowna Rock School and our products. We primarily use our various product profiles to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Kelowna Rock School takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
