1. INTRODUCTION
 
Thank you for using Kanbee! Capitalized terms used but not defined shall have the respective meanings given to them in the Terms of Service (https://www.kanbeeapp.com/pages/terms-of-service) (the “Terms”). The provisions of the Terms apply to this Policy as well. We created this Privacy Policy (“Policy”) to give you confidence as you visit and use our Service. This Policy covers how we collect, use, store, and share your information when you use our Service. All references to “we”, “us”, “our”, “Kanbee”, or “Knab” refer to Knab, Inc., a Delaware corporation. All references to “you”, “your”, or “partner”, relate to the person who registered an Account on the App to use or access the Services.
 
Please read this Policy carefully. By creating an Account, you represent and agree that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by both this Policy and our Terms as binding agreements.
 
We may update this Policy from time to time. If you continue using the Service after we make any changes to this Policy, you accept and agree to be bound by those changes. The most updated version of this Policy will always be posted on the Service, so we encourage you to check the Policy periodically. In certain situations, we may notify you about material changes to the Policy. You are responsible for ensuring we have an up-to-date, active, and deliverable email address on file for you, and you agree that your use of the Service will be subject to any updated Policy posted on the Service, whether or not you receive notice of such changes.
 
2. APPLICABILITY
 
This Policy applies to personal information we collect on the Service. As used in this Policy, “personal information” means information that can be used to identify any natural person either directly or indirectly.
 
3. PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

These documents include, but are not limited to, contact information verification, copies of government-issued identification, or other pertinent financial information. The collection of this information is necessary to provide the functionality of the Service and/or to comply with applicable laws and regulations related to the Service’s product offerings.


3.2  Personal Information We Collect Automatically 
In addition to the information that you provide to us voluntarily, we collect information automatically through the Service, such as how you use and interact with the Service, data on activities that you pursue through the Service, pages visited, links clicked, and other similar activities.
This information is used to provide you with the Service, to better understand our partners and how they use the Service, and to improve the Service.

3.3  How We Use Personal Information
We use the personal information that we collect to make the Service available to our partners, to comply with our legal obligations under anti-money laundering and related laws, to market and promote the Service, to improve the Service, and to protect our legal rights.
 
Examples of the ways in which we may use your personal information include:

  • Allowing you to register for an Account and use the Services;
  • Verifying your identity in compliance with our obligations under applicable law;
  • Identifying fraudulent or illegal activity;
  • Providing you with information, products, or services that you request from us;
  • Carrying out our obligations and enforcing our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, including for billing and collection, if applicable;
  • Notifying you about changes to the Service, such as updates to this Policy; and
  • Understanding how our partners interact with the Service to improve the Service and our product offerings. 
In addition to the above, if you choose to opt in to receive marketing and promotional communications from us, we may use your personal information to contact you with email newsletters or about our products and special events. If you no longer want to receive marketing-related emails from us, you may opt-out via the unsubscribe link included in such emails, or by whatever other means we allow you to unsubscribe. We will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that if you opt-out of receiving marketing-related emails from us, we may still send you important administrative messages that are required to provide you with our Services.
 
We may also use your personal information for any other purposes with your consent.
 

3.4  How We Share Personal Information

We may disclose personal information that we collect in the following circumstances: 

  • With our subsidiaries and affiliates;
  • With our contractors and vendors who support aspects of the Service and our business, including: services related to website hosting, data analysis, information technology and related infrastructure, bank account identity and authentication, helpdesk and support, partner identity verification, and fraud prevention;
  • With our Third Party Partners;
  • With a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by us about our partners is among the assets transferred (in such event, we will provide notice to our partners of such transfer);
  • When we believe, in good faith, that disclosure is necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss, to report suspected illegal activity, or to investigate violations of our Terms of Service (https://www.kanbeeapp.com/pages/terms-of-service) or any other applicable policies; and
  • With your express consent. 
Additionally, from time to time, we may receive requests from government agencies to obtain information about our partners. In handling such government requests, we greatly value the privacy of your information. While we may be required to turn over partner information at times, we will strive to require a search warrant or subpoena, to the extent that we can reasonably demand such warrant or subpoena, before we turn over information about you and we will also strive to notify partners when we receive government requests about their data.
 
Finally, we may disclose anonymized, non-personal information about the Service and our partners without restriction.
 

3.5  Accessing and Correcting Your Information

You are solely responsible for ensuring that any personal information that you provide to us is accurate. You may be able to view and update certain personal information that we have about you by logging into your Account or by emailing the address provided at the end of this Policy. Please note that we reserve the right to reject any changes you make to your personal information and to reject any requests to change your personal information submitted through inappropriate channels.
 

3.6  Special Notice for California Residents
