Privacy Policy


    The Kive Company, a Delaware corporation (“us,” “we,” “our,” “Kive” or “Company”) is committed to respecting the privacy rights of the Users of its Services. We created this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to give you confidence as you visit and use the Services, and to demonstrate our commitment to fair information practices and the protection of privacy. This Privacy Policy is only applicable to the Company’s Services, as made available primary via the Website and App, and not to any other websites that you may be able to access from the Website or App, each of which may have data collection, storage, and use practices and policies that differ materially from our Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy. Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning set forth in our Terms of Use. By viewing our Website, using our App, opting-in to our Newsletters or purchasing our Paid Services, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this Policy.

    1. Types of Information Collected.
      1. We may track and collect the following categories of information when you visit our Site: (1) IP addresses; (2) domain servers; (3) types of computers accessing the Site; and (4) types of web browsers used to access the Site (collectively “Traffic Data”). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for marketing purposes or for improving your experience on the Site. We also use “cookies” to customize content specific to your interests, to ensure that you do not see the same advertisement repeatedly, and to store your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit the Site (see Section 4 below).
      2. In order to become a Viewer, Reader, Artkive Customer, or Member (as defined in the Terms of Use), you may be required to provide us with certain information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information includes but is not limited to your name, e-mail address, and physical address (“Contact Data”) and credit card and billing information (“Financial Data”). In the event you process a credit card transaction to purchase a Paid Service, we will collect the date and amount of each order, which will be associated with the last four digits of the credit card you utilized (collectively, “Transaction History”). If you communicate with us by e-mail or upload User Content pursuant to Kive’s Terms of Use, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information.
    2. Uses of Information Collected.
      1. We use Contact Data to (i) provide Newsletters to Readers, (ii) to create and manage accounts for Artkive Customers and Members, (iii) provide customer service to Artkive Customers and Members, (iv) analyze our Readers’, Artkive Customers’ and Members’ usage of our Services, (v), send Readers, Artkive Customers and Members information about the Company and its Services, (vi) to contact Readers, Artkive Customers and Members for other legitimate business purposes.
      2. We collect Financial Information to charge Artkive Customers and Members for the Paid Services ordered, but we do not store or retain any of your Financial Information, except for the last four digits of your credit card. Your Financial Information is processed directly by the applicable third party processor through an API integration.
      3. We collect your Transaction History so that we can accurately track the orders you have placed and answer any questions you may have in connection with any charges made to your credit cards.
      4. We collect Traffic Data for the purpose of providing and improving the Service.
      5. We may link or combine the Personal Information we collect and/or receive about you and the Traffic Data we collect automatically during your visit to our website or use of certain of our Services. This allows us to provide you with a personalized experience and helps us to continually work to improve our Services.
    3. Retention of Information Collected.

      We will only retain your Personal Information and other data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of our legitimate business interests and satisfying any legal or reporting requirements. For clarity, retention periods may be extended if we are required to preserve your information or data because of litigation, investigations and other similar proceedings, or if a longer retention period is required or permitted by applicable law.

    4. Third Party Data Processors.
      1. Kive engages certain third parties that may process data submitted to Kive to perform certain business-related functions and to increase the functionality of our Services. For example, we use third parties for credit card processing and shipping purchases in the provision of our Services. Third party companies provide various other services to us, such as monitoring and analyzing how our Services are used or performing. When we engage another company to perform such functions, we may provide them with information, including Personal Information and Traffic Data in connection with their performance of such functions. These third parties may analyze the data we provide, combine that data with publicly available data, and provide us with access to their analysis and reports. The chart below lists our third party data processors (or type of data processor), a description of the service they provide, types of Users from whom the processors may process data, and the type of data processed by each processor.
