What Information do we collect

Like most website operators, Kinteract collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Kinteract’s visitors use its website and to monitor website performance, utilisation of features and services, traffic and demographic trends, and browser versions, to improve our website and services and tailor them to your interests. From time to time, Kinteract may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Kinteract may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Kinteract only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Certain visitors to Kinteract’s websites choose to interact with Kinteract in ways that require Kinteract to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Kinteract gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at Kinteract to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Kinteract are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Kinteract collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Kinteract. Kinteract does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Kinteract contains data pertaining to children that is provided by practitioners, providers and carers and this information is used to provide Kinteract services in a secure manner. We do not share this information with any third party except unless we are required to do so for the purpose of complying with the law. Specifically, this information is not used for marketing, promotion, advertising or any other revenue generating purposes.
