Information We Collect and How We Use It
We may offer a number of services that do not require you to register for an account or provide any personal information to us. In order to provide our full range of services, however, we may collect personally identifiable information. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected include: name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information, and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services. When you sign up for a KYI, Inc. account or other KYI, Inc. service or promotion that requires registration, we may ask you to provide personal information (such as your name, email address and account passwords). For certain services we may also request credit card or other payment account information which we maintain in encrypted form on secure servers. We may combine the information you submit under your account with information from other KYI, Inc. services or third parties in order to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of our services. For certain services, we may give you the opportunity to opt out of combining such information.
We may use the information you provide to fulfill your requests for our products, programs, and services, to respond to your inquiries about offerings, and to offer you other products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you. We sometimes use this information to communicate with you. If you choose to submit content for publication, we may publish your screen name and other information you have provided to us.
We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience.

Agents and contractors of KYI, Inc. who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for KYI, Inc.
Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Notice. Inadvertent disclosures may result, for example, when third parties misrepresent their identities in asking the site for access to personally identifiable information about themselves for purposes of correcting possible factual errors in the data.
When you send email or other communication to KYI, Inc., we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services. Our server may record information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that uniquely identifies your browser.
