Kobie Marketing is very sensitive to privacy issues on the Internet. We believe it is important that you understand how we treat the information you may provide to us. Unless specifically stated otherwise, the information you provide is never shared with anyone other than Kobie employees or authorized contractors.
Information Collection and Use
Kobie Marketing collects and stores the information you provide to us through use of our web site. For example, you provide information to Kobie Marketing through registration or submission of other forms. Information collected and stored may include personal information such as your name, the company for which you work, postal address, email address, telephone number and/or other information. We may also collect user names and passwords, as necessary to host and support client’s web sites.
Additionally, we automatically collect certain information from your computer in the form of log files or cookies.
As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. This information may be collected from the Kobie Marketing site as well as web sites that Kobie Marketing hosts on behalf of its clients. We use this information to analyze trends, to administer the site, and to track how visitors interact with the Kobie Marketing web site.
If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site, such as contests or surveys, will be limited and you may need to reenter personal information when you register for events.

How We Protect Your Personal Information
Kobie Marketing safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. The Kobie Marketing web site, as well as web sites that we host on behalf of our clients, use SSL encryption on all web pages where personal information is submitted. This protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information as it is transmitted over the Internet.
However, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is absolutely secure; therefore, we cannot 100% guarantee the security of your data. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols, and make sure you use a secure browser.
Kobie may employ contractors to help manage data services, and such contractors may have access to data, similar to the access we give our employees. We require that our contractors apply similar standards to protect the security and confidentiality of any data shared.
We may provide your personal information to companies that provide services to Kobie Marketing, which assist us with our business activities. These companies are given access to and are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us. Your personal information will only be shared with such companies as described in this privacy statement. Additionally, we require that any service provider with which we share data applies standards equivalent to those used by Kobie Marketing to protect the security and confidentiality of any data shared.
We may also disclose your personal information (i) as required by law (ie. to comply with a subpoena, a government request or other legal process); (ii) when, in our good faith belief, disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, your safety or that of others, or to investigate fraud; (iii) to any other third party, once you have given prior consent; or (iv) in the event of a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of Kobie Marketing’s assets (a “Change in Control”). In the case of a Change in Control, we would notify you via email and/or a notice on our site of any change in the ownership or use of your personal information.
Kobie Marketing may retain any data collected and stored on behalf of our clients for as long as necessary to provide services to you and our Clients, as well as to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
