Information from children
Kao has no intention of collecting personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. Kao will maintain procedures to assure that personally identifiable information about children under the age of 13 is only collected with explicit consent of such child’s parent or guardian. If a child under the age of 13 has provided Kao with personally identifiable information without such consent, Kao asks that a parent or guardian of the child contact Kao using our Contact Us page to inform us of that fact. Kao will use reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.
Kao may share the personally identifiable information you provide with other Kao divisions or affiliates, provided that, such other divisions or affiliates have privacy practices that are similar to those set forth in this policy.
Kao may permit its vendors and subcontractors to access your personally identifiable information, but they are only permitted to do so in connection with services they are performing for Kao. They are not authorized by Kao to use your personally identifiable information for their own benefit. Kao may disclose personally identifiable information as required by law or legal process.
Kao may disclose personally identifiable information to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, or the terms or policies for the web site.
In the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, dissolution, reorganization or acquisition of Kao, or a Kao business unit, information Kao has collected about you may be sold or otherwise transferred. However, this will only happen if the party acquiring the information agrees to use personally identifiable information in a manner which is substantially similar to the uses described in this policy.
Sweepstakes, contests and other promotions may set forth additional uses of your personally identifiable information in connection with such promotions.
