A KH account allows you to access many of our services that require registration.

  • Content Uploaded to Site. Any personal information or photo content that you voluntarily disclose online (on the discussion boards, chat areas, etc.) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others.
  • "Private" Content.  Certain pages and information fields are identified as "private", such as within personal profile pages, and this information is used only by KH certified supervisors under normal operations without prejudice, and will only be disclosed to external parties for the purpose of ensuring that your application can be successfully processed. The information will not be disclosed to any external unrelated party.

  • We do not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent.  We may, however, use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major KH Site changes or for customer service purposes).
  • We use certain non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the KH Site and to create new features, promotions, functionality and services by storing, tracking, analyzing and processing user preferences and trends, as well as user activity and communications.

Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites

KH allows other organizations to upload custom pages that link directly to KH through your member homepage. You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party websites for more information on their practices and for instructions on how to opt out of certain practices. KH's privacy policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other websites.  

Changes to this policy

Regardless, we will post any Policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of Policy changes).
