The following is from the Privacy Policy posted on the kcbs.us website. While the policy states "If you do not want to receive information from such sponsors, you will be given an opportunity to opt out of the program" and "If you wish to be taken off these mailings and/or telemarketing lists, please uncheck the box labeled "Receive promotional emails" in the Profile page on our web sites", there is no such box on the profile page and currently no mechanism in place for members to opt out. The policy also says "this will be active when our Members Only functions are launched" but that was launched a couple of years ago.

We may also provide your personally identifiable information and/or reports to authorized and officially recognized sponsors of KCBS for their use in connection with membership benefits or independent marketing efforts. These third-parties may send you email relating to their products and/or services. If you do not want to receive information from such sponsors, you will be given an opportunity to opt out of the program.

In addition to the above, we sometimes contract with other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf or otherwise in connection with our membership services, such as hosting our web sites, distributing promotions or sweepstakes, performing marketing surveys, focus groups, or interviews or promoting other opportunities offered by KCBS. These parties may have access to personal information, such as addresses, needed to perform their functions, but are generally restricted from using it for other purposes. We may also disclose this information to third parties, such as employers, who have arranged discounts, purchased travel or other services on your behalf.

We have unique partnerships with individual supplier companies for the purpose of providing the various benefits of KCBS. As such, we may be required to exchange information, which may include your e-mail address, with one or more of these suppliers in order to ensure that you are able to use the service and realize these benefits when you choose to do so. The information exchanged is limited to what is required to meet this purpose.

We also uses customer information to identify, develop and market products and services that we believe you will value. From time to time, you may receive offers from our affiliates or from third-party companies with whom we have a business relationship. These third parties are also subject to confidentiality requirements with respect to your information.

Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that is collected will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.

E-MAIL COMMUNICATIONS

While a Member of KCBS, you cannot opt out of emails related to your membership or service benefits. To cancel your Membership, and to no longer receive email communications related to your membership, please contact our office.

Promotional Emails: We would like to keep you informed about emails that do not relate to your Membership or service benefits ("Promotional Offers") from KCBS, our affiliates and from third parties. If you wish to be taken off these mailings and/or telemarketing lists, please uncheck the box labeled "Receive promotional emails" in the Profile page on our web sites (this will be active when our Members Only functions are launched).
