VOLUNTARY POSTING - COMMENTS, WIKIS, ETC.
The wiki and comments functions of the Site allow you to post your own information and to comment on what others have to say. Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post public information, that information can be accessed by the public and can in turn be used by those people to send you unsolicited communications.
The Services may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Kanu is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.

Members who no longer wish to receive updates or notifications may opt out in their user profile "Account Settings". All notification emails and e-newsletters also include the above instructions for opting-out of those communications in the future.
Kanu member accounts are secured by member-created passwords. Kanu takes precautions to insure that member account information is kept private. We use reasonable measures to protect member information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to member information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of member account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time.
