Privacy Policy

Effective as of: April 1, 2021

Your privacy is extremely important to us. To better protect you, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

This Privacy Policy relates to information collected by Kano & Co. LLC  (referred to in this Privacy Policy as "Kano & Co." "we" or "us" or "our") through your use of our website and our Services, features, and information available on our website (which are collectively referred to in this Privacy Policy as "Kano & Co. Services").​

This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase through https://www.kanoandcodesigns.com. We are committed to transparency with our customers, employees, and to protecting your data privacy.

What Information do we Collect?​

You will need to establish an account in order to take advantage of certain features of the Kano & Co. Service. If you wish to establish an account you will be required to provide us with personally identifiable information. In addition, we may obtain your personally identifiable information from you if you identify yourself to us by sending us an e-mail inquiry with questions or comments. Depending on your use of Kano & Co. Service, we collect two types of information: personally identifiable information, and non-personally identifiable information. 

Personally Identifiable Information

Personally Identifiable Information identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you. Examples of personally identifiable information include your name, IP address, company name, job title, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and/or billing and credit card information.

 

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Non-personally identifiable information is information, any single item of which, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you, including demographic information (such as age, profession, company industry, gender, current location, or zip code), IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and statistical data involving the use of the Kano & Co. Service. Certain non-personally identifiable information may be considered a part of your personally identifiable information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered non-personally identifiable information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-personally identifiable information (for example, your account preferences).

When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”

Device Information is collected using the following technologies:

    - “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
