(How we collect, process, secure
and manage your personally identifiable information)

  1. Collection of information

    1. In General, you are not required to provide information about yourself when you visit KESTRELPROJECT's Sites. You can browse our Sites and view their content anonymously, except for in certain circumstances, such as in the collection of traffic data by Google Analytics. The type and amount of information KESTRELPROJECT collects about you varies according to how you use our Sites. However, we may ask you for (or collect from you) some or all of the following types of information when you access various content or features, submit information to us, or directly contact us with questions or feedback: [1] Contact information, such as name, e-mail address, phone number and postal address, [2] Search queries, [3] Correspondence and other information that you send to us and [4] Additional information as otherwise described to you at the point of collection or pursuant to your consent. KESTRELPROJECT only gathers and processes your personally identifiable information when you voluntarily submit such information to KESTRELPROJECT, except in situations where the transmission of such information is reasonably necessary to preserve the integrity or security of our Sites or to prevent injury to KESTRELPROJECT and when disclosure is required by law.
    2. KESTRELPROJECT is the sole owner of the information collected on the Sites: kestrelproject.com, smartkestrel.com, coolkestrel.com. For the visitors to our Sites we may collect certain information automatically when you visit our Sites, including: [1] the server your computer is logged onto, [2] websites you visited before and after visiting our Sites, [3] information about your interactions with e-mail messages, such as the links clicked on and whether the messages were received, opened, or forwarded, [4] information collected through “cookies”, “web beacons”, Local Shared Objects, and other technologies; [5] the domain name of your internet service provider, [6] your browser type and operating system and version and your Internet Protocol (IP) address (the number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet and that can sometimes be used to derive your general geographic area). KESTRELPROJECT uses IP addresses to analyse trends, administer the website, track visitors’ movements, and gather broad demographic and general geographic area information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
    3. KESTRELPROJECT uses “cookies”, sometimes in combination with “web beacons” or similar technology, to collect information about how our Sites are used, such as average time spent on our Sites, pages viewed, information searched for, access times, response rates to online or e-mail advertising and other relevant information about the online visitor experience. For the anonymous visitor, the information in this paragraph does not personally identify the visitor but rather numerically identifies the computer’s browser. In addition, KESTRELPROJECT places a cookie on your computer that identifies your visit to our Sites and shares this cookie’s information with a third party marketing provider, which will use it to deliver marketing information about us to you. By using our Sites, you consent to our use of cookies and similar technologies. If you do not want to receive cookies on your computer, you can select the appropriate settings in your browser’s options; however, doing so may limit some of the interactivity our Sites offer you.
    4. KESTRELPROJECT does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If we nonetheless discover that it has received personally identifiable information from an individual who is (or who KESTRELPROJECT has reason to believe is) under the age of 13, we will delete such information from our servers and systems.
    5. KESTRELPROJECT's Sites may contain links to other websites and we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other such websites. We encourage our visitors to be aware when they leave our Sites and to read the privacy policy of every website that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by KESTRELPROJECT’s Sites.

    5. We work with certain third-party social media providers to offer social networking services through the content of our Sites. For example, you can use third-party social networking services, including but not limited to Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and others to share information about your experience on our Sites with your friends and followers on those social networking services. These social networking services may be able to collect information about you, including your activity on our Sites. These third-party social networking services also may notify your friends, both on content of our Sites and on the social networking services themselves, that you are a visitor of our Sites or about your use of our Sites, in accordance with applicable law and their own privacy policies. If you choose to access or make use of third-party social networking services, we may receive information about you that you have made available to those social networking services, including information about your contacts on those social networking services.
    6. We offer a publicly accessible blog. Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose any information through our blog, this information may be collected and used by others.

    7. KESTRELPROJECT retains personally identifiable information that you provide as long as we consider it potentially useful in providing information about our products and services, before securely deleting the information.

    8. KESTRELPROJECT's Sites may provide links to other websites. We do not control, and are not responsible for, the content or practices of these other websites. Our provision of such links does not constitute our endorsement of these other websites, their content, their owners, or their practices. This Privacy Policy does not apply to these other websites, which are subject to any privacy policies and other terms and conditions they may have.
    9. To facilitate our global operations, KESTRELPROJECT may transfer and access personally identifiable information from around the world. This Privacy Policy shall apply even if we transfer personally identifiable information to other countries.

    10. In the event that KESTRELPROJECT is acquired by or merged with another company, or in connection with the potential sale or transfer of some or all of the assets of our Sites, KESTRELPROJECT reserves the right to sell, license or transfer to a third party entity your information.

  3. Security of information

    1. All online contributions on our Sites occur through a safe, private, and secure system that protects the visitor’s personally identifiable information. If you request information regarding KESTRELPROJECT’s products and services, and in so doing, voluntarily provide information about yourself by mail or email, we will maintain and use such information for these purposes only.
    2. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. We secure the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. KESTRELPROJECT protects the information through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
