Information Collection and Use 

RealKauai is the sole owner of the information collected within the RealKauai.com domain. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. RealKauai collects information from our users at several different points within our domain.

  

Registration
In order to use certain areas of this domain, a user must first complete a registration form. During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest. It is optional for the user to provide demographic information (such as income level and gender), but encouraged so we can provide a more personalized experience on our site. 
Personal information or personally identifiable information gleaned from registration forms within the RealKauai.com domain is never sold, shared, rented or otherwise disclosed to anyone or any entity outside RealKauai, except unless explicitly and prominantly stated otherwise on the individual form itself. There are many links to other websites, domains and email addresses outside the RealKauai domain. RealKauai does not control the collection of information outside its domain, therefore, users should be aware that when they follow links to other websites, domains and email addresses, that information collection will then be governed by the privacy policies of those outside domains, websites or email recipients. 
Order
We request information from the user on our order forms. Here a user must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customerís orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.

Cookies
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the userís hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, the user will not be able to participate in any of our Sweepstakes, Contests or Drawings that may take place from time to time. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. 

Some of our business partners use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies. 


Log Files
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track userís movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. 


Sharing
We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. 

We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. 

We partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. 

These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services. 


Links
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we RealKauai are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site. 


Newsletters
If a user wishes to subscribe to one of our newsletters, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. 


Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. 


Tell-A-Friend
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friendís name and email address. RealKauai will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. RealKauai stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. The friend may contact RealKauai at remove@RealKauai.com to request the removal of this information from their database. 


Security
This website takes every precaution to protect our usersí information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.  

When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with secure encryption software. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just Ďsurfingí. 

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our usersí information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. 

If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to security@realkauai.com. 

 


Correction/Updating Personal Information:
If a userís personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that userís personal data provided to us. This can usually be done at the member information page or by emailing our Customer Support. 


Choice/Opt-out 
Our users are given the opportunity to Ďopt-outí of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our order form has an Ďopt-outí mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but donít want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists. 

Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from our partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to unsubscribe in the subject line in the email or email us at support@RealKauai.com   

Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not. 


Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
