What Personal Information We Collect and How We Collect It
We do not currently require you to provide Personal Information in order to have access to some general information available on the Services. But, we do receive and/or collect Personal Information from you in the following ways:
Membership and/or Registration for Use of Services. Some of the Services require registration. Upon registration, you will be asked to provide personal details such as first name and surname, date of birth, gender, home address, e-mail address and telephone number. The mandatory fields will be explicitly marked. Certain Services, for example reservation of facility services, community benefits and membership, may not be used without providing the information requested in the mandatory fields. Upon performance of actions through, or use of, the Services, the personal details that you provided will be recorded. You are required to provide correct, accurate and full details and, by the fact of use of the Services, confirm the validity of the details provided. It is clarified that erroneous or incomplete details may preclude you from using the Services or interrupt the use thereof, including prevention of the possibility of using the physical facilities. No personal details of a third-party shall be provided without his/her explicit consent.
Usernames and Passwords. Where you are asked to choose a username and password, you are required to keep them confidential in order to prevent misuse thereof.
Account. In order to utilize or benefit from certain Services, you may be required to create an account (“Account”). You acknowledge and agree that information you provide in the course of creating an Account or registering for an event or use of the Services, including but not limited to, name, email address, phone number, physical address, and employer, may be provided to and maintained by third parties offering services and Software to Kiln and its community members, whether or not you complete the registration process, and may be used by Kiln or its service providers in connection with the products, services and events offered by them. We may offer different options to create an Account, including:
Online Registration Form: You may choose to complete and submit an online registration form. You will be asked to provide us with certain mandatory information such as your name, telephone number and email address, position and organization name, and a password that you will use for your Account. You may choose to provide optional information, such as your age and gender.
Third-Party Accounts: You may choose to create an Account by clicking on a ‘connect’ or ‘sign-in’ button that we may display on the Services for a designated third-party website or service (each a “Third-Party Account”), including but not limited to Google, LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter. Doing so will enable you to link your Account and your Third-Party Account. If you choose this option, then you will be required to approve the connection as well as the provision of information (which may include Personal Information, such as your profile picture, gender, birthdate, headline, summary, friends’ lists, previous positions and organizations), that we may obtain from your Third-Party Account.
‘Contact Us’ Information. If you send us a “Contact Us” request, whether by submitting an online form, by sending an email, you may be required to provide us with certain information, such as your name, phone number and email address.
Actions on or Through the Services; Device Data. When you use or install certain Services, we may collect information about your laptop, mobile device or other digital device, applications, and user identification numbers. Such information may include your device type, device ID, installed applications and date and time stamps of Services use. In addition, we may deploy tracking technologies within the Software to help us gather different statistics, and track your use of the Services including your views, clicks, form submissions, time spent using or accessing the Services, etc.
Share with Friends Service. The Services may enable you to invite your friends to use our Services by sending them an invitation email, text message, or message on social media. You may do so by: (i) using the Services to send or post an invitation message via your Third-Party Account and/or (ii) using the Services to send an invitation to your friend’s external email address or phone number. If you send or post an invitation message, we may collect Personal Information about the recipient such as their email address or their Third-Party Account. To protect the recipient’s privacy, we provide this service subject to the Terms, and enable recipients to opt-out.
Location Data. We may provide certain location-based services (“Location Services”) in connection with the Services that are dependent on data related to the geographic location of your laptop, mobile device, or other digital device on which the Software is used or installed (“Location Data”). Specifically, we may obtain GPS coordinates and IP addresses as part of the Location Data. You agree that we may collect or obtain your Location Data. You should be able to use the settings on your device to turn off most location-sharing features. The use of some Services is subject to obtaining your Location Data.
Profile. Some parts of the Services may enable you to build a public profile in connection with your Account (“Public Profile”). Your Public Profile will include your name and other information that you choose to include in your Public Profile, such as your gender, birth date, profile picture and custom texts, and you may control which such information will appear on your Public Profile.
Events; Visits to Kiln Facilities. When you participate in Kiln events or visit our facilities, we may collect your name, position, email, and phone number, as well as members and companies you are visiting.
Log Files. We may make use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, viewed pages, clicked links, and any other information your device, application, and/or browser may send to us. We may use such information to personalize your experience when using our Services, analyze trends, administer the Services, track your use of the Services, gather demographic information, and analyze security aspects.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies. Our Services may utilize “cookies”, anonymous identifiers and other tracking technologies in order for us to provide our Services and present you with information that is customized for you. A “cookie” is a small text file that may be used, for example, to collect information about activity on the Services. Certain cookies and other technologies may serve to recall Personal Information, such as an IP address, previously indicated by a user. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser.
Publicly Available Information. Your Public Profile and any publicly available content that you post on or via the Services (“User Submissions”) may be publicly available to other users of the Services and may also be accessed and used by people off the Services. For instance, if you ‘like’ a certain event within the Services, such information can be viewed by others. If you publish your contact information in any User Submissions or as part of your Public Profile, you may receive unsolicited messages from other users of the Services or others. We therefore encourage you to only post information that you are sure you want to be accessible to anyone.

If you submit and/or we collect Personal Information through the Services, then we may use such Personal Information in the following ways:
We will use your Personal Information to provide and improve our Services, to provide you with support and assistance in using the Services, to solicit feedback in connection with your use of the Services, to contact you in connection with the Services and certain programs or offerings that you may have registered for, to display your Public Profile to other users of our Services, to develop audience insights and/or look-alike models in connection with marketing campaigns, and to target advertisements and other content to you or others, subject to applicable law, and to identify and authenticate your access to the parts of the Services that you are authorized to access.
We may choose to send you push notifications on your mobile device from time-to-time in order to update you about any events or promotions or other relevant information. If you no longer wish to receive these types of communications, you may turn them off at the device level.

As further described in the section on Opting Out, you may choose not to receive promotional, advertising or other Services-related emails from us.
If you choose to send your friend an invitation email or message we will use the contact information that you provide, or make available, to automatically send your friend an invitation email or message. Your name and email address may be included in the invitation email or message.

Use of Anonymous Information. We may use Anonymous Information or disclose it to Third-Party Service providers in order to improve our Services, offer Services and benefits, or improve our advertising effectiveness. We may also disclose Anonymous Information (with or without compensation) to third parties, including advertisers and partners. “Anonymous Information” means information that does not enable identification of an individual user, such as aggregated information about the use of our Services.
Opting Out. You may choose not to receive future promotional, advertising or other Services-related emails, and text messages (SMS), etc. from us by selecting an unsubscribe link at the bottom of each message that we send. Please note that even if you opt out of receiving the foregoing messages, we may still send you a response to any “Contact Us” request as well as administrative emails (for example, in connection with a password reset request) that are necessary to facilitate your use of the Services. Opting out of push notifications requires that you turn off push notifications on your device or uninstall the application.
Choice. At all times, you may choose whether or not to provide or disclose Personal Information. If you choose not to provide mandatory Personal Information, you may still visit parts of the Services, but you may be unable to access certain applications, options, programs, offers, and services that involve our interaction with you.
Access/Accuracy. To the extent that you do provide us with Personal Information, we wish to maintain accurate Personal Information. If you would like to delete or correct any of your other Personal Information that we may be storing, you may use the tools that we make available on the Services or you may submit an access request by sending an email to email@example.com. Your email should include adequate details of your request. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may retain certain Personal Information in connection with pending or potential legal disputes, as required by law enforcement or other government agencies, to process and maintain records of financial transactions, or as requested by you. Please note that depending on the nature and the scope of the Personal Information concerned, your denial to provide information may impede or prevent the provision of the Services.
Children’s Privacy. The Services are not structured to attract and are not intended for use by children under the age of 16 years. Accordingly, we do not intend to collect Personal Information from anyone we know to be under 16 years. If we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child under 16 years, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any such information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Security. The security of Personal Information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards, including the use of appropriate administrative, physical and technical safeguards, to protect the Personal Information submitted to us. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security or confidentiality. If you have any questions about the security of the Service, you can contact us at email@example.com.
Merger, Sale or Bankruptcy. In the event that all or part of our business is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, or in the event of bankruptcy or a comparable event, we reserve the right to transfer or assign Personal Information in connection with the foregoing events. If required by law, we will obtain your consent for such transfer.
Our ‘Do Not Track’ Notice. We do not currently respond or take any action with respect to web browser ‘do not track’ signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party web sites or online services. We may allow third parties, such as companies that provide us with analytics tools, to collect personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across different web sites when a consumer uses the Services.
