Kinia knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate you trusting that we will do so carefully and sensibly. To better protect your privacy, we provide this Privacy Statement explaining our practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by Kinia. The information below explains our policy regarding your privacy, both online and offline. By visiting kinia.ie or sharing personal information with Kinia you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Statement.
Collection and Use of General & Personal Information
When you visit our website or make a donation online or offline, you may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers, credit or debit card for the purpose of donations) that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes. Credit or debit card information given for any transaction is only retained long enough for that specific transaction to process. We do not retain credit or debit information beyond that single transaction.
These purposes include registering to receive email newsletters, or other materials, requesting further information from us about projects and services, donating to us, making requests, submitting a form on our website, or simply asking a question. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way, whether it is online or offline. We ask for personal information so that we can fulfill your request and return your message. This information is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies. Kinia does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfill your request or complete your donation, but you will still be free to browse the other sections of the websites owned and administered by Kinia. This means that you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.
The way we use information
When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the service or information you have requested). For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to receive information, to make a donation, or to apply for a job. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
You can register with our website if you would like to receive updates on our new projects and services. Information you submit on our website or over the phone will not be used for this purpose unless you ‘opt-in’ specifically.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive, to receipt any transactions or if follow-up for that specific function is required. Such addresses are carefully guarded by Kinia for their specific purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
Kinia does not sell, rent, give-away or share its email addresses or other personal contact information with outside sources. Kinia also does not send mailings on behalf of other organisations.
Should any material changes be made to the ways in which we use personally identifiable information, Kinia will take commercially reasonable measures to obtain written or email consent from you. We will also post the changes to our use of personally identifiable information on our website at least 30 days prior to a change.
How we protect your information
Personally identifiable information is stored on our server and is not publicly accessible. Further, personally identifiable information is only accessed by Kinia personnel on a “need to know” basis. To prevent unauthorised access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We follow best practice industry standard measures, to provide an additional level of security.
How long will your information be held?
We will retain your personal information and maintain a record of your donations for as long as we are required for financial reporting purposes. We will also retain your personal information as long as necessary to comply with our legal obligations.
Your personal information is protected by a secure system both online and offline. Your information will be stored on a secure, computerised database which seeks to prevent loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, alteration or destruction of this information. We will always endeavour to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, alteration or destruction. We are committed to providing security for your information, including working with leading suppliers of secure payment services. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
Unfortunately, no collection or data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Thus, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any transmission and you transfer the personal data at your own risk.
We will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by a distributed denial-of-service (“DDoS”) attack, viruses, malware or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment, computer programs, data or other proprietary material due to your use of this Website or to your downloading of any material posted on it, or on any website linked to it.
If you are under 18, please ensure that you have a parent or guardian’s permission before providing Kinia with any personal information. If you provide us with any personal information we will assume that you are over 18 and that you accept the terms of this Privacy Statement, unless you inform us otherwise.
