Privacy Statement

Because The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa wants to demonstrate its commitment to your privacy, it has agreed to disclose its information practices. Questions regarding this statement should be directed to the KCO's webmaster.

Does the KCO ask for personal information? This web site does not collect personal information in any form for visitors to the site. The private portion of the site accessible to members also does not collect personal information, though emails are retained by the site to faciltate access to other members.

Does the KCO use cookies and "IP Addresses"? The KCO does not use cookies. The KCO collects (but does not publish or share) IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate usage. What else should I know about my privacy? Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on-line - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information on-line that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Furthermore, while we strive to protect your personal information, KCO cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

In addition, KCO partners and third party Internet sites and services accessible through KCO or parties whom we inform you are collecting data in connection with sweepstakes, promotions, etc., have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of us.

KCO has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions. The point? You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're on-line.
