The Policy

Personal Information: For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, personally identifiable information means any information collected by or provided to Kudos such as your name, company name, email address, billing address, credit card information and any other information voluntarily provided. Members who sign up for the free account are not required to enter a credit card.

Use of Information: Any personal information voluntarily provided to Kudos is collected to provide users with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. Kudos will use aggregate information on what pages and widgets users access or visit, and information volunteered by the users (such as customizable features, widgets and/or survey information). The information we collect is used to improve the content of our Web Site and the quality of our service.

Your email address may be used to send you periodic news from Kudos. Users can opt out of promotional emails at any time, but will still receive communications such as receipts, confirmation emails and customer service updates that are considered necessary to provide the service to you. We use the information collected to deliver services, process payments, update our records, communicate with you about products and services, and generally maintain your accounts with us. We do not share, sell, trade, or rent your personal information to third parties, except as described in this privacy policy.

How you can access or change your personal information: Owners of the account (Super Administrators) can review and edit account and personal information at any time by logging into your account and accessing your profile through the Admin section. General users of the service can manage their account details and personalization settings under the My Settings tab. Users can control what personal information they share in the site by changing their preferences.

How we protect your information: Throughout this policy, we use the term "personal information" to describe information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person. We do not consider personal information to include information that has been anonymized so that it does not identify a specific user.

We store and process your personal information on our servers in the US and Canada, and we protect it by maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable law. We use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files, and we authorize access to personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfill their job responsibilities.

Kudos uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption when transmitting sensitive information that you enter on our registration or order forms. In particular, Kudos encrypts your password and credit card information when provided.

Who has access to your account, comments & messages: The content of the comments or messages sent by a user through Kudos will be provided and disclosed to that user's Employer to enable the Employer to identify the user for the purposes of rewards and recognition, performance reviews and coaching. Information that is made public at the users discretion by posting to the Team Wall is accessible by all users.

Marketing and Promotion: Kudos periodically posts customer and user testimonials on our web site which may contain Personal Information such as the customer or user's name. We do obtain the customer's consent prior to posting the testimonial and their name along with their testimonial. If you want to remove your personal information that is being displayed on our website under public pages please send your request to privacy@KudosNow.com.
