Kennebec, Inc. Information about Privacy

This notice provides Kennebec, Inc.’s privacy policy regarding the nature, purpose, use, and sharing of any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) collected via this website. Our privacy policy explains our information practices when you provide PII to us, whether collected online or offline, or when you visit us online to browse, obtain information, or conduct a transaction. PII may include: your name, email, mailing and/or home address, phone numbers, or other information that identifies you personally. We do not require you to register or provide personal information to visit our website.

The PII you provide on our website proofpreferred.com of our facebook page will be used only for its intended purpose.

Personally Identifiable Information

As a general rule, the Department does not collect PII about you when you visit our website, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Submitting PII through our website is voluntary. By doing so, you are giving Kennebec, Inc. your permission to use the information for the stated purpose. Kennebec may also use your email address to send you further product offers from time to time.  Opt-out links are provided in each email sent to you.   However, not providing certain information may result in Kennebec’s inability to provide you with the service you desire.

If you choose to provide us with PII on a Kennebec website, through such methods as completing a web form or sending us an email, we will use that information to help us provide you the information or service you have requested or to respond to your message. The information we may receive from you varies based on what you do when visiting our site.

Generally, the information requested by Kennebec will be used to respond to your inquiry or to provide you with the service you request. When this information is requested, the reasons for collecting it, a description of Kennebec’s intended use of the information, how to grant consent to use mandatorily provided information, and how to grant consent for other than statutorily mandated uses will be fully described in a separate customized “Privacy Notice.” This customized Privacy Notice will either appear on the web page collecting the information or be accessible through a hyperlink (link) prominently displayed immediately above or below the information request.

Email

Many of our programs and websites allow you to send us an email. We will use the information you provide to respond to your inquiry. We will only send you general information via email. You should be reminded that email may not necessarily be secure against interception. Therefore, we suggest that you do not send sensitive personal data to us via email. There is no reason for you to send us any bank information, credit card information, or Social Security Numbers at any time.  All of our credit card transactions happen completely offline.  If your intended email communication is very sensitive, or includes information such as your bank account, charge card, or Social Security number, you should instead send it by U.S. mail. Another alternative may be submission of data through a secure web page, if available.
