Effective December 7, 2018
At Kindur, we take seriously our responsibility to protect the privacy and confidentiality of information about you. Kindur is committed to earning and maintaining your trust by safeguarding your Personal Information and making its protection a priority. Your “Personal Information” is data that relates to you and can – either on its own or in combination with other information – identify you as an individual.
How We Collect Information
We get information about you in a range of ways.
Information You Give Us.
We collect certain information directly from you, such as when you fill out forms on the Platform. Types of information we may collect from you directly include your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, username, password, demographic information (such as your occupation, gender, race or nationality), social security number, driver’s license numbers (or comparable state-issued ID numbers), tax ID number, financial account information, as well as other information you give us on our Platform.
Information you provide us may also include user created content such as messages, comments, photos, audio or video that you post, upload, submit, share or otherwise provide on or through the Platform (“User Content”). The posting of User Content is subject to our Terms and Conditions .
Information Required by Law
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires certain institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. We will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
Information Automatically Collected.
In addition to the Personal Information described above, we also may automatically collect information about the devices accessing our Platform. Some examples of this type of information include: type of device and browser you use, the type of operating system, IP addresses, location, application information, unique device identifiers, pages you viewed, how long you spent on a page and crash data. The type of information we collect depends on the type of device used and its settings.
As another example, we may generate analytics based on your preferences, characteristics, use and interactions with the Platform. Our Services may then analyze such data and generate derivative data or aggregated data as well as reports and other output.
Cookies and Tracking Technologies
Like many websites and online services, we may use "cookies" (see below), log files, web beacon technologies and other automated tracking technologies to obtain certain types of information when a web browser, mobile application or other application accesses our Platform. A cookie is a small piece of data that we transfer to a computer's or other device’s memory for record-keeping purposes.
We may perform analytics on your preferences, characteristics, use and interactions with the Platform to generate aggregated information. Our Services may then analyze such aggregated information to generate derivative data as well as reports and other output.

When is Information Shared with or Disclosed to Others or the Public?
In order to provide the Services and in connection with our everyday business purposes and activities, we may share your Personal Information with third parties who perform services on our behalf. Examples of these third parties and services include consumer identification verification services, public accounting firms and other professional firms, and certain other vendors and service providers who perform marketing, advertising, research and analytics services on our behalf. We have entered into agreements that require that these third parties keep your Personal Information confidential. We may also disclose your information to other third-party financial institutions (for example, if you ask to transfer assets from Kindur to another financial institution).
We may allow third-party service providers to display advertisements to our users on third-party websites based on your browsing history by using cookies or other tracking technologies.

You can opt out of such online based advertising by following the instructions below.

We share Personal Information among our affiliates and business units when we believe it will help enhance the Platform or Services we can provide, but only in circumstances where such sharing conforms to the law, any applicable confidentiality agreements, and our policies and practices.

Security and the Protection of Your Information
Kindur is focused on protecting your information. We employ physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to keep your information secure. We use robust, industry-standard browser encryption, store all of your data on servers in secure facilities and implement systematic processes and procedures for securing and storing data. We limit access to your Personal Information to only those employees with authorized access who need to know the information in order to perform their jobs, and we require third parties who perform services for us to agree to keep your information confidential. Furthermore, if you choose to close your account or your account is terminated with us, we will continue to adhere to the privacy policies and practices outlined here. If you maintain an account with us that you access through our Platform, you are responsible for protecting and maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and restricting access to your computer. While Kindur follows generally accepted standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Links to Other Services and Applications
Our Platform and Services may contain links to, interoperate with, and allow you to share content to and from third party services, websites and applications. The fact that we link to a website, service or application or allow you to share content with or through these third parties is not an endorsement, authorization or representation that we are affiliated with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. Other websites, services and applications follow different rules regarding the collection, use, storage or disclosure of personal and other information. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites, services and applications you use.

How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals
Online tracking is the collection of data about an individual’s Internet activity used to deliver targeted advertisements and for other purposes. Customers using certain modern browsers have the ability to activate a “Do Not Track” signal. Kindur does not currently respond to “Do Not Track” signals.
