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.

Sharing

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.
