Cadence Keen Innovations, Inc. (CKI), respects your privacy. This Privacy Statement applies to all of our web sites and our other products and services (collectively, “CKI Products”). This Privacy Statement explains what information we collect through the CKI Products, how we use that information, and what choices you have.
The CKI Products may contain links to other web sites. This Privacy Statement does not apply to the practices of any company or individual that CKI does not control, or any web sites or services that you link to from the CKI Products. You should use caution and review the privacy policies of any web sites or services that you visit from ours to learn more about their information practices.
What information we collect:
In various places in connection with CKI Products, we collect “Personally Identifiable Information,” such as your name, postal address, telephone number, email address, or other information that can be used to identify you or contact you. For example, we collect this information when you sign up for our email newsletter, purchase or register a CKI product, register for a “CKI Account”, enter a sweepstakes or participate in promotions and give-aways. From time to time in the future we may offer additional features, services and promotional opportunities that would require you to submit Personally Identifiable Information to participate.
We do not intend that children will use the CKI Products. We do not solicit or knowingly collect information from children under 13 years old, nor will we knowingly accept registration from them.
How we use the information we collect:
We use Personally Identifiable Information that you provide us for such purposes as responding to your requests for information, products or services, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about our offerings. For example, if you sign up for our email newsletter, we will send the newsletter to the email address you provided. If you so choose, we will also use Personally Identifiable Information to send you information about products and services that may be of interest to you. Later on in this Privacy Statement, we provide you with more information on what choices you have.
We use Anonymous Information to determine how people use the CKI Products. For example this data tells us information including how often users click on our advertisements, which files are downloaded most frequently, and which components or areas of CKI Products are the most popular. Analyzing this data allows us to improve the offerings on and performance of CKI Products.
How we share information
We sometimes use third parties to help with some aspects of the CKI Products, such as delivering content, processing payments and providing marketing assistance. When we supply Personally Identifiable Information to these third parties, we require them to use it only for the function they are helping us with.
We aggregate the Anonymous Information that we collect and exchange it with advertisers and other partners who are interested in the use and performance of the CKI Products. We share this type of data so that our partners also may provide you with an optimal user experience and better understand how users access the CKI Products.
We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information as required by law, or if in our judgment it is necessary to protect CKI or our employees or users from harm, loss or liability. If we merge with or are acquired by another company or we sell substantially all of our assets, the acquiror or resulting company will receive and may continue to use the information you have provided as described in this policy. In the unlikely event we cease operation or enter bankruptcy, your information may be transferred to and used by another company that acquires our assets or offers similar or related products or services. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any such acquiror or successor may continue to use your information as set forth in this policy.
What choices you have:
When you register for the CKI Products, you have the option of checking a box to tell us that you do not want us to send you any information about our products and services, or that you do not want to receive information from our partners and others about products and services that might interest you. We will keep track of your decision in our database. Even if you choose not to receive information from us, we reserve the right to communicate with you on matters we consider especially important.

We do not accept information such as credit card numbers in the internet. This guards against interception of the information while it is on the Internet. We keep the Personally Identifiable Information you may provide on servers that are protected by firewalls and other technological means against intrusion or unauthorized access. They are located in a physically secure facility, however, there is no such thing as “perfect security” Please contact us if you have any information regarding unauthorized use of the CKI Products.
