This Privacy Policy applies to KENTWOOL's treatment of personally identifiable information that KENTWOOL collects through (a) the website maintained by KENTWOOL at www.kentwool.com or any other website or promotional or informational pages that may be maintained on any social media platform or website, including, but not limited to, Facebook or Twitter (individually, a "KENTWOOL Site" and collectively, the "KENTWOOL Sites"), and (b) any other use of KENTWOOL's products or services. This Privacy Policy does not apply to practices of companies whose sites may be linked to KENTWOOL. For access to the privacy policies of such linked sites please refer to the information provided by such sites at their respective home pages. Also see the paragraph below under the heading "Hypertext
Links."

The KENTWOOL Sites are intended for residents of the United States. Although residents of other countries are permitted, at the discretion of KENTWOOL, to utilize and access the KENTWOOL Sites, you should be aware that your personal identifying information, including your IP address, will generally be transferred to the United States and processed and stored there consistent with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and the privacy laws of the United States (such information may also be stored elsewhere as provided herein).

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

KENTWOOL collects personally identifiable information when you request information from KENTWOOL. On such occasions, KENTWOOL may ask for your name, email address, zip code and personal information concerning your interests, occupation, gender, and other demographic information. KENTWOOL also receives and records information from server logs from your browser including cookie information relating to pages requested and the like.

KENTWOOL does not seek to collect such information from persons under the age of eighteen (18). If you are under the age of eighteen (18), please do not submit any such information to KENTWOOL. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of eighteen (18) who has provided such information to KENTWOOL, please inform us (through the contact information previously set forth) and we will remove such information from our database as described further below.

In addition, no person (of any age) is required to provide KENTWOOL with the personally identifiable information we request, except to the extent necessary to fulfill an order for products. If you do not wish to provide such information, you are free not to do so. Your provision of requested information to KENTWOOL through a KENTWOOL Site or other means is presumed by KENTWOOL to be voluntary and with your consent to the uses described herein. If, after submitting personally identifiable information to KENTWOOL, you wish to "opt-out," please contact KENTWOOL as noted above and we will remove your information from our database as set forth below in the section titled "Managing Your Information." Please know that such a decision will not stop advertising or content that is generated prior to the time when we can accomplish the removal of your information.

KENTWOOL uses the personal information we collect for a variety of purposes; for example, to respond to requests, make internal business decisions, evaluate available offers and make decisions about services offered, protect our rights or property, create products and services, provide improvements to products or services, anticipate and resolve actual or potential problems with our products and services, and inform you of KENTWOOL products, services, and offers that we believe you will find of interest.

KENTWOOL may use your information to help us determine your potential interest in other products or services. For marketing and similar purposes, we may use personal information to offer products and services from us or others. We offer opt out opportunities and you may request to be opted out of any future offers by contacting KENTWOOL at the address previously set forth.

KENTWOOL makes its customer information (names, addresses, and email addresses) available to a set of related companies we believe may offer products or services of interest to our customers. If you prefer that we not include you on these lists, you can request that you not be included by contacting KENTWOOL at the address previously set forth.

KENTWOOL may also share your name, address, email addresses, and phone number with research firms that work on our behalf to survey our customers and others about products and services that KENTWOOL may offer. To opt out of our sharing this information with other companies, you can request that you not be included by contacting KENTWOOL at the address previously set forth. KENTWOOL does not share your other personal information with the other companies. KENTWOOL also contracts with these companies to require that they only use the information we share with them for the limited purposes described above.
USE OF COOKIES

KENTWOOL uses cookies to enhance the interactive nature of your Internet experience and to provide a convenient feature to save you time. Cookies enable KENTWOOL to quickly retrieve specific information from previous visits and to recall features that you may have customized on your browser. You may instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit.

MANAGING YOUR INFORMATION

You are entitled to request access to and correction of all your personal data collected by KENTWOOL by contacting KENTWOOL at the address previously set forth, and you may also require KENTWOOL to delete your data if you no longer want KENTWOOL to process it. KENTWOOL will keep your data as long as it is reasonably necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. You may choose not to receive unsolicited marketing material from KENTWOOL and you have the right to request deletion of your KENTWOOL account information, subject to KENTWOOL's need to keep appropriate archives of its business operations.

SECURITY

KENTWOOL employs reasonable measures to maintain all personally identifiable information provided by you on computer servers in a controlled and secured environment, in an effort to hinder unauthorized access, loss, alteration, use or disclosure of such information. However, the nature of the Internet is such that information may be transmitted over networks without appropriate security measures and may be accessed, deleted, altered, used or disclosed by unauthorized persons.

Because of the international nature of the services and products provided by the KENTWOOL Sites and the nature of KENTWOOL's business, personal data may, subject to applicable law, be transferred internationally throughout KENTWOOL worldwide (details of which are available on request by emailing or calling us as provided above) for the purposes described above. This may mean that personal data is transferred to countries which do not have laws or regulations which protect personal data, such as the United States, where the servers for the KENTWOOL Sites are located.

KENTWOOL uses reasonable measures to limit the disclosure of the data you provide to us only to certain staff within KENTWOOL and its affiliates (i.e. staff whose job it is to process your inquiries and survey answers or otherwise to administer the KENTWOOL Sites, and those staff involved in the provision of KENTWOOL services and products which may be of interest to you) and to require that they process the data only for the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy.

SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS AND WEBSITES

Any information, communications, or material of any type or nature that you submit to a KENTWOOL Site (including, but not limited to any KENTWOOL Site contained on a social media platform or website such as Facebook or Twitter) by email, posting, messaging, uploading, downloading, or otherwise (collectively, a "Submission"), is done at your own risk and without any expectation of privacy. KENTWOOL cannot control the actions of other users of any social media platform or website and KENTWOOL is therefore not responsible for any content or Submissions contained on such sites and platforms. By visiting any KENTWOOL Site that is contained on a social media platform or website, you are representing and warranting to KENTWOOL that you have reviewed the applicable privacy policy and terms of use of such platform or website and that you will abide by all such provisions contained therein.

Additionally, in the event that KENTWOOL offers a message board or any other interactive or social-type feature on a website administered directly by KENTWOOL, please be aware that these areas may allow you to publicly post, and share with other users, certain messages, content, or other information (e.g., stories, pictures, tips, etc.). Although KENTWOOL may take certain precautions to protect those who use these areas of a KENTWOOL Site, we encourage you to be wary of giving out any personal information in such public forums. The information you post can be collected and used by people you don't know. We cannot guarantee the privacy and safety of these areas and are therefore not responsible for any information you choose to post. Your use of these features is fully at your own risk.

Any Submission to a KENTWOOL Site, including but not limited to any Postings (as defined herein), is non-confidential and non-proprietary, and KENTWOOL and its affiliates shall be free to use and reproduce any such Submission freely and for any purpose. Not limiting the generality of the foregoing, KENTWOOL shall be free to use any ideas or concepts contained in any such Submission for any purpose whatsoever, including, but not limited to, developing, manufacturing, advertising and marketing products.

You further acknowledge and warrant that any Submission which you may make contains only your own material and content or material and content that you have undeniable rights to use, and that KENTWOOL's use of your Submission will not violate any third party rights.

You are prohibited from posting or transmitting any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic or profane material, or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any law.

KENTWOOL may remove Postings at any time and for any reason.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

KENTWOOL, its suppliers, licensors, or the original creators of all materials on the KENTWOOL Sites, own all copyrightable subject matter on the KENTWOOL Sites and all trademarks, patents, proprietary information, technologies, products, processes or other proprietary rights of KENTWOOL and/or such other parties. No license to or right in any such copyrights, trademarks, patents, proprietary information, technologies, products processes, and other proprietary rights of KENTWOOL and/or other parties is granted to or conferred upon you.

The use of such materials on any other website or in any environment of networked computers is prohibited.

THIRD PARTY ADVERTISING

Advertisements that appear on any KENTWOOL Site are sometimes delivered or "served" directly to users by third party advertisers. These third party advertisers automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer, or use other technologies such as JavaScript and "web beacons" to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. KENTWOOL does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by these third party advertisers. However, third party advertisers do not have access to your information stored by KENTWOOL unless you choose to share it with them.

HYPERTEXT LINKS

The KENTWOOL Sites contain hypertext links to sites that are not created or maintained by KENTWOOL. This Privacy Policy applies only to KENTWOOL Sites and not to any third party websites. KENTWOOL is not responsible for the accuracy, relevance, timeliness, or completeness of any third party websites. The inclusion of any link to such sites does not imply endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation by KENTWOOL of the site. KENTWOOL disclaims any liability for links (1) from another website to any KENTWOOL Site, or (2) to another website from any KENTWOOL Site. KENTWOOL cannot guarantee the standards of any website to which links are provided on a KENTWOOL Site nor shall KENTWOOL be held responsible for the contents of any third party website or subsequent links. For this reason, KENTWOOL does not represent or warrant that the contents of any third party website are accurate, compliant with state or federal law, or compliant with copyright or other intellectual property laws. KENTWOOL does not endorse the contents of these third party websites in any way. Additionally, KENTWOOL is not responsible for web casting or any other form of transmission received from any linked website. Any reliance on the contents of a third party website is done at your own risk and you assume all responsibilities and consequences resulting from such reliance.

VENDORS AND THIRD PARTY AGENTS

KENTWOOL may use outside companies, agents, or contractors (collectively, "Vendors") to provide support for the internal operations of the KENTWOOL Sites and to assist KENTWOOL with administering various other programs or services. In the course of doing so, these Vendors may be allowed to collect information (including personal information) from you or to process your information on behalf of KENTWOOL. These vendors are only given access to the information they need in order to perform the specific tasks they've been hired to do and are prohibited from using your personal information for any other purpose.

MODIFICATIONS TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

KENTWOOL may make modifications or amendments to this Privacy Policy from time to time.

LEGAL AND BUSINESS TRANSFERS

Notwithstanding any other provision set forth in this Privacy Policy, KENTWOOL may disclose your personal or other information if KENTWOOL is required to do so under any applicable law, or if in our good faith judgment, such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal processes, respond to any claims, or protect the safety or rights of KENTWOOL, our consumers, or the public.

In the event of a merger or acquisition of all or part of KENTWOOL, the acquirer may have access to the information previously maintained by KENTWOOL, which could include your personal information. Similarly, any information in our possession, including your personal information, may be transferred to a third party entity as part of a corporate reorganization, insolvency proceeding, or other similar event. In such cases, KENTWOOL cannot guarantee that the third party will adhere to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and KENTWOOL shall in no event be liable for the actions of any third party with respect to the handling and storage of any personal or other information.

PREVIOUS PRIVACY POLICIES

This Privacy Policy replaces all previous disclosures we may have been provided to you about the personal information practices of KENTWOOL. KENTWOOL will update this Privacy Policy if our practices change or if laws or regulations require that such changes. If KENTWOOL decides to disclose personal information in a way that is materially different from that which was stated in this Privacy Policy at the time personal information was collected, KENTWOOL will notify you by posting notice of the change on the KENTWOOL Site located at www.kentwool.com for a reasonable period of time before the implementation of such change(s) and, if feasible, will give you an opportunity to opt out of the proposed use of personal information.
