Collection of your Personal Information
KEANE collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. KEANE also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by KEANE. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by KEANE for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the KEANE Web site.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through KEANE public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: KEANE does not read any of your private online communications.
KEANE encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from KEANE so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. KEANE is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the KEANE and KEANE family of Web sites.
Use of your Personal Information
KEANE collects and uses your personal information to operate the KEANE Web site and deliver the services you have requested. KEANE also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from KEANE and its affiliates. KEANE may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
KEANE does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. KEANE may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, KEANE may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to KEANE, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
KEANE does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
KEANE keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within KEANE, in order to determine what KEANE services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within KEANE to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
KEANE Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on KEANE or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of KEANE; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of KEANE, or the public.
The KEANE Web site uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Keane may use a vendor that provides the ability to identify you personally based on links you have clicked in emails or information you have submitted in online web forms and associate this information with certain cookies. Keane may continue to receive information that identifies you and tracks your web page views as you view other web sites that use these certain services.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize KEANE pages, or register with KEANE site or services, a cookie helps KEANE to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same KEANE Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the KEANE features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the KEANE services or Web sites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
KEANE secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. KEANE secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to this Statement
KEANE will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. KEANE encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how KEANE is protecting your information.
