To enhance your online experience, we may use “cookies” or similar technologies. Cookies are text files placed in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. Cookies do not contain PII; however, once you choose to furnish a site with PII, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.

We use cookies to understand site and Internet usage and to improve or customize the content, offers or advertisements on our site. We may also use cookies to help us offer you products, programs, or Services that may be of interest to you and to deliver relevant advertising.

We, our third-party service providers, advertisers, or partners also may use cookies to manage and measure the performance of advertisements displayed on or delivered by us and/or other networks or sites. This also helps us, our service providers, advertisers, and partners provide more relevant advertising.

We, our third-party service providers, advertisers, or partners may also use “web beacons,” clear “.gifs,” or similar technologies, which are small pieces of code placed on a web page, to monitor the behavior and collect data about the visitors viewing the Website.

If we have collected and processed your PII with your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time.

5. Data Security

We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the PII we collect. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we do not warrant or represent the security of any information (PII or otherwise) that you transmit to us. By using our Services, you understand, acknowledge and agree that you transfer data to us at your own risk.

6. International Transfer

We operate globally, and so it may be necessary to transfer your PII internationally. In general, your PII will likely be transferred to and processed in the United States and/or Europe. When transferring data from Europe, Kapta relies upon a variety of legal mechanisms, including contracts with our users as well as documents issued by regulatory authorities.

We may be required to disclose PII by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process, or in response to a government request. We also may be required to disclose PII in response to a lawful request by law enforcement or public authorities in an effort to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

We may disclose PII to relevant parties to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of Kapta or third parties, including enforcing contracts or policies, or in connection with investigating and preventing fraud or security concerns.

8. Disputes

In the event a dispute concerning the terms of this Privacy Policy arises between you and Kapta, Kapta will make a good-faith effort to resolve such a dispute via mutual discussion and/or negotiation. In the event the dispute remains unresolved after such discussion or negotiation, the dispute may be internally escalated to Kapta’s senior officers to attempt to resolve the dispute.

If a dispute remains unresolved following the attempts for resolution in the preceding paragraph, you and Kapta agree to commit to mediation by a mediator appointed by JAMS, an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States.
