“Personal information” is information about an individual that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. Personal information includes personal identifiers such as an individual’s name, address, phone number, driver’s license number and social security number. A domain name or Internet Protocol address is not considered personal information. We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily participate in an activity that asks for information (e.g., sending an e-mail or enrolling in an activity). If you choose not to participate in these activities, your choice will in no way affect your ability to use any other feature of KCDEE web sites. If personal information is requested on the web site or volunteered by the user, State law and the federal Privacy Act of 1974 may protect it. However, this information is a public record once you provide it, and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.
Where specific laws or regulations require that we obtain certain personally identifiable information and you refuse to provide it, KCDEE may be obligated to deny you certain services.
