But we may collect information from you only when you provide it to us (any information that you submitted when you complete any online registration or subscription form).

Protection of Information
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We use reasonable measures to safeguard your information in our possession. However, no data transmission over the internet is completely secure and no security mechanism is impenetrable. We will exercise all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of information, but we will not be liable for unauthorized disclosure of information due to no fault of our own, including, but not limited to, errors in transmission and unauthorized acts.
Cookies are files containing a small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive.
Like many sites, we use “cookies” to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Site.
Data in cookies may be read to authenticate user sessions or provide services. Cookies alone tell us nothing about who you are unless you specifically give us the information, which may then be linked to the data stored in the cookie. By adjusting settings on your browser, you may elect not to allow cookies to be collected.
KHI is not responsible under any privacy laws or local data protection legislation in any jurisdiction outside of the United States.
Compliance with Laws
KHI will disclose information to any government or law enforcement officials or private parties in its sole and absolute discretion only if it’s absolutely necessary to respond to any claim or to comply with any legal process to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical or actionable activity and to comply with any international, federal, state or local law, regulation or ordinance.
Children and Parents
We respect children’s privacy. We do not knowingly or intentionally collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us to resolve the issue.
