Pixels (aka web beacons/web bugs/java script). Pixels are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track the on-line movements of web users.

Kiss Products does not undertake any retention obligations through this statement.

  5. INFORMATION DISCLOSURE.
    • A. Affiliated Entities and Service Providers. We will not sell or rent any of your personally identifiable information to third parties for marketing purposes without your consent. However, we may disclose your information to any affiliated entity or organization and to agents and service providers to help us operate the Kiss Products Sites, improve our business or the Kiss Products Sites, and to provide services to us. These third parties may include customer service providers, business or sales service providers, or providers that supply support for the Kiss Products Sites. Use of information by affiliated entities and service providers will be subject to this Policy or an agreement that is at least as restrictive as this Policy
    • B. Legal Requirements. In some cases, we may disclose your information, including personally identifiable information (I) as required by any applicable law or legal regulation; (ii) if we believe disclosure is needed to protect our rights, property, or safety; (iii) to government regulators or law enforcement authorities in connection with any judicial proceeding, court order, subpoena, or legal process served on us or the Site; and (iv) to respond to a physical threat to you or another person.
    • C. Insolvency and Business Transactions. If we should ever file for bankruptcy or engage in a business transition such as a merger with another company, or if we purchase, sell, or reorganise all or part of our business or assets, we may disclose your information, including personally identifiable information, to prospective or actual purchasers in connection with one of these transactions.
    • D. Disclaimer. We cannot ensure that all of your information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Policy. For example, a third party may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or other users of the Kiss Products Sites may abuse or misuse your personally identifiable information. No transmission of data over the internet can be 100% secure.

  6. External Links. The Kiss Products Sites may contain links to other websites. Please be aware that Kiss Products is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites. Websites that are accessible by hyperlinks from the Kiss Products Sites may use cookies. Kiss Products encourages you to read the privacy statements provided by other websites before you provide personally identifiable information to them.

  7. Information Security Measures. We exercise care in facilitating the transmission of information between your device or computer and the third-party servers that operate and store information for the Kiss Products Sites. The personally identifiable information we collect is stored in operating environments that are not available to the public. While our third-party providers have mechanisms in place to safeguard your personally identifiable information once it is received, no transmission of data over the internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure... Kiss Products takes measures to restrict authorised access to your personal information to those persons who have a legitimate purpose to know that information to provide products or services to you and those persons you have authorised to have access to such information. Please be aware, however, that any e-mail or other transmission you send through the internet cannot be completely protected against unauthorised interception.

  8. “Do Not Track” Settings. Because we track usage information through the use of cookies, pixels and other tracking mechanisms, your selection of the “Do Not Track” option provided by your browser may not have any effect on our collection of cookie information. The only way to completely “opt out” of the collection of any information through cookies or other tracking technology is to actively manage the settings on your browser to delete and disable cookies and other tracking/recording tools. However, getting a “Do Not Track” signal to work as you might want is difficult. Using browsers as an example, not all tracking technologies can be controlled by browsers; unique aspects of your browser might be recognisable even if you disable a tracking technology; not all settings will necessarily last or be effective; even if a setting is effective for one purpose, data still may be collected for another; and even if one website observes a “Do Not Track” signal, that website usually will not be able to control other websites.

  9. Children’s Privacy.
    • A. The Kiss Products Sites are Not Intended for use by Children. The Kiss Products Sites are for general use and children under the age of 13 are prohibited from using the Kiss Products Sites or registering for an Account. We will not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13; nor will we send any e-mail correspondence to children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected information from a child under the age of 13, we will remove that information immediately and delete it from our servers. Children under the age of 13 should always ask their parents or guardians before providing their information on-line. If you believe information from a child under the age of 13 has been submitted to the Kiss Products Sites, please notify us at: [customerservice@kissusa.com].
    • B. California Minors. We may provide Kiss Products Sites users the ability to publicly post information, for example by submitting reviews, testimonials, or other User Content. If you are a California resident under age 18 and you are unable to remove publicly-available information that you have submitted to us, you may request removal by contacting us at: [customerservice@kissusa.com]. When requesting removal, you must be specific about the information you want removed and provide us with specific information, such as the URL for each page where the information is located, so that we can find it. We are not required to remove any information that: (i) federal or state law requires us or a third party to maintain; (ii) the information was not posted by you; (iii) we anonymise the information so that you cannot be identified; (iv) you don’t follow our instructions for removing or requesting removal; or (v) you received compensation or other consideration for providing the information. REMOVAL OF YOUR INFORMATION FROM THE KISS PRODUCTS SITES DOES NOT ENSURE COMPLETE OR COMPREHENSIVE REMOVAL OF THAT INFORMATION FROM OUR SYSTEMS OR THE SYSTEMS OF OUR SERVICE PROVIDERS. We are not required to delete the information; our obligations under California law are satisfied so long as we anonymise the information or render it invisible to other users and the public.

  10. California Shine the Light Law. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed personally identifiable information (as defined under that statute) of that California resident for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the categories of that kind of personally identifiable information that was disclosed to them.
