Furthermore, your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential.

These third parties are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us on your behalf.

Additionally, we may disclose your personal information

  • as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process.
  • when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.

California Online Privacy Protection Act of 2003 (CalOPPA)
CalOPPA is the first state law in the United States to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the country (and conceivably the world) that operates a website collecting personally identifiable information from California residents to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy.

In accordance with CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

  • You can visit our site anonymously. We provide a link to this Privacy Policy when you register and on our homepage. Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’, and can be easily be found on our homepage.
  • You will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our Privacy Policy page, and we may email you with periodic changes to this Privacy Policy, but you should check our website frequently to see recent changes. We revise the updated date at the top of this Privacy Policy so you know exactly when any changes to our Privacy Policy have gone into effect. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account. However, material changes to this Privacy Policy are not retroactive without your affirmative consent. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this Privacy Policy periodically and become aware of any modifications.

Does our website track users?
We do not use tracking cookies, web logs, or otherwise track users on our website, either internally or across websites, and therefore we do not respond to “do not track” signals.

However, our third-party providers may track users. You can learn how to opt out of tracking by Google Analytics at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/. You can learn how to opt out of HostGator’s tracking by visiting http://www.hostgator.com/privacy.

Does our website allow third-party analytics?
No. Any analytics that are performed on the information we collect from you on or through our website are for our eyes’ only and we do not provide information to third parties for analytics.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
We limit access to our website and mobile application to college students who have a university-affiliated .edu email address. For that reason, we never knowingly collect or maintain information at our website or mobile application from those who are under 13.

Transparency and Choice
Users may have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to let you know what information we collect so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. You may change or delete the name or email address you used to register on our website by emailing us at support@kegg.co. You may also set your browser to block cookies that may be used by our third-party providers or to indicate when a cookie is being set by them.

Notifications and Other Messages
We may send you notifications and other messages using the contact information we have for you, such as your email address.
