Knowledge Network Corporation (“Knowledge”) has developed this website as an electronic resource with information about our organization and its programs, and as a fun and entertaining site for our viewing audience.
We are committed to providing our visitors with a website that respects their privacy. This page summarizes the privacy practices on our organization's websites. It outlines the information we collect at this website and how we use that information.
When you Contact us Through our Website this is What We do With The Information
We do not collect personal information that identifies individuals (such as your name, phone number, address, or email address) unless you supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us via email, fax, regular mail, telephone, registering for services or contests at our website, or making a donation through our website.
Personal information voluntarily provided by you via our website will be used for the purpose for which it was provided (for example, to enter a contest, participate in an online forum, make a donation, send an inquiry, or send an email address to receive automatic information about upcoming programming) or to which you otherwise consent, will be kept strictly confidential, and is not disclosed to anyone inside Knowledge except the personnel who need the information to complete your request. Such information may also be used for internal analysis and management purposes.
When you voluntarily disclose information in a forum area or other public communication service of our website, your personal and other information disclosed in your communication will become public information and can be collected and used by outside parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Knowledge.
In some instances, we may use outside parties to administer contests, promotions and other online activities on our behalf. This may involve the collection of personal information. In such cases, we ensure that the manner in which any outside party collects, uses and retains personal information conforms to our privacy policies.
We reserve the right to collect, use or disclose a visitor’s personal information as required or permitted by law. We may disclose personal information to affiliates and outside suppliers or contractors from whom we obtain services for the purposes of supplying those services, or in connection with the sale of our business or enterprise. Knowledge does not sell, license, rent, market, disclose, barter or distribute any personal information obtained from our websites other than as disclosed in this statement.
We do maintain server logs and web logs which automatically collect certain non-identifying information regarding website users, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet Service Provider, the date and time you access our website, the length of your visit, the pages you look at, and the websites you visit before and after leaving our website. This non-identifying information is used for our website and system administration purposes and to improve the website. Your non-identifying information may be used and archived for future use in order to facilitate your online experience and to gather broad demographic information.
We make no attempt to link this information, including the information described below under ‘Cookies’, with the identity of individuals visiting our Website. We may, however, review server logs for security purposes, for example to detect intrusions into our network. The possibility exists that server log data, which contains visitors’ IP addresses, could in instances of criminal or other malfeasance, or where necessary to protect the security and integrity of our Website, be used to trace and identify individuals and be shared with appropriate investigative bodies and others as permitted by law.
We occasionally use "cookies" to track how our visitors use the site. If you do not want a cookie placed on your computer by Knowledge, you may disable cookies altogether by modifying the Preferences section of your Internet browser software. If you will accept cookies but wish to be informed of their appearance, you may turn on a warning prompt by modifying the cookie warning section of your browser software.
We will Protect You when You Are on our Site
Knowledge uses a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. All user contact information is contained behind secured networks and is accessible only by a limited number of trusted employees and/or contractors who have special access rights to production systems. Passwords are encrypted in Knowledge’s secure database, which is also located behind secured networks. All sensitive/credit card information supplied by users is transmitted by a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
