Information that Kirix Collects
Kirix collects the following information:
a) Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you or could reasonably be used to identify you personally (such as your real name, address, phone number, or e-mail address). Providing personally identifiable information is voluntary. You may, however, not be able to use the full functionality of this website if you do not provide certain information. Kirix collects personally identifiable information that you provide during your use of the website, including:
- information for using our online store or otherwise managing a Kirix user account, including your name and contact information. We use credit card information only to pass on to our credit card processors and do not store the credit card number after the purchase is complete. However, for historic receipt purposes, we do store the card type (Visa, MasterCard, etc.), the last three digits of the card (e.g., xxxx xxxx xxxx x123) and expiration date. These appear on your receipt page;
- information you provide when you sign up for community aspects of our website (forums, wiki, etc.). As a guideline, but without limitation, our forum registration collects a name, and a valid email address and other optional information;
- information you provide when you sign up for any services (e.g., newsletter or marketing offers) offered on the website; and
- information collected when you contact us via online forms (providing feedback, sales questions, etc.) or offline methods (e.g., telephone).
c) Web Server Log Information: Kirix collects non-personally identifiable web log information regarding visitors to its website and each visitor's activity on the website. This information includes, but is not limited to your IP address, the time and date of your visit(s), the pages you visit, the frequency of your visits and the length of stay on each page, your browser type, and information that identifies any linking or referral web page visited prior and /or subsequent to visiting our website.
The Kirix website is not directed at children and Kirix does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under thirteen (13) years of age unless the collection complies with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"). If you are under thirteen (13) years of age, do not send any information about yourself to Kirix. If Kirix discovers that a child under the age of 13 has provided Kirix with personally identifiable information, Kirix will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete that child's personally identifiable information from its system.
You may have the opportunity to provide us with the personally identifiable information of a friend (or a friend of yours may provide Kirix personally identifiable information about you), such as if you chose to email a friend a link, notice or other special feature from Kirix's website. Any email address that you supply to Kirix for those activities will not be retained, or used, for other purposes unless otherwise disclosed to you at the time the information is collected. We encourage you to send items from our websites only to recipients who are your friends or family or persons with whom you have a relationship that would expect such information, so that it does not seem like we are soliciting them.
How Kirix Uses your Information
We only use personally identifiable information collected from you for the purpose disclosed at the time the information is collected (e.g., we will collect credit card information to process a payment and we will collect contact information to manage your product licenses). We will only use personally identifiable information to contact you:
- to provide you with requested purchases, information, services or content;
- to notify you about Kirix's new product and services offerings, including software, software releases and services;
- in reference to your licenses to use Kirix software;
Kirix's User Forums and Wiki
Kirix provides user forums and a wiki that allow users to contribute content to the website. If you submit to Kirix a comment, code, work of authorship, photograph or any other content to be published by Kirix (either online or offline), you agree that we may publish your name or other personally identifiable information in connection with publishing the content.
Your Choices Regarding Your Personally Identifiable Information
You have the ability at any time to access your Kirix Account, forum profile or wiki profile and update your name, contact information, email address, and other information that you provide via a login on the Kirix website. You can also review your historical purchase information on your Kirix Account, but you can not change the purchase history information.

You may leave Kirix's website by clicking on certain links on Kirix's website. Many of these links take you to websites and online content that are not operated by Kirix and are beyond Kirix's control. Some of these links may even include Kirix's logo as part of a joint marketing arrangement. If you "click" on these links, you will be taken to a third party website. Kirix has no control over and is not responsible for the content of any third party sites to which you link. In addition, these other websites have their own privacy policies and practices that may differ from Kirix's, and we encourage you to review the privacy policies of any other website you visit.
Kirix takes reasonable steps to secure its systems and to secure your personally identifiable information on our systems, including limiting access to the personally identifiable information contained on our servers and using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol when processing credit card information. Unfortunately, data transmissions over the Internet can not be guaranteed to be secure. Kirix makes no warrant regarding the security of any information you transmit to Kirix and you do so at your own risk.
