Who We Are
The sole proprietor Keith W. Crain, Jr. owns & operates KronosLabs.io (“KronosLabs“) and may operate other websites. It is KronosLabs’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, KronosLabs 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. KronosLabs’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how KronosLabs’ visitors use its website. From time to time, KronosLabs may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
KronosLabs also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on KronosLabs.io blogs/sites. KronosLabs only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to KronosLabs’ websites choose to interact with KronosLabs in ways that require KronosLabs to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that KronosLabs gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at KronosLabs.io to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with KronosLabs are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, KronosLabs collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with KronosLabs. KronosLabs 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.
KronosLabs may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. KronosLabs may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, KronosLabs does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
KronosLabs discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on KronosLabs’ behalf or to provide services available at KronosLabs’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using KronosLabs’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. KronosLabs will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, KronosLabs discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when KronosLabs believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of KronosLabs, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an KronosLabs website and have supplied your email address, KronosLabs may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with KronosLabs and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. KronosLabs takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
