You may also choose to disclose your information in the following ways:
While using the Khonzel service you will have opportunities to post
reviews or other information publicly, and third parties could use
the information you disclose;
Certain portions of our service may contain a tool which gives you
the option to share information by email, text message and social or
other sharing applications, using the clients and applications on
your smart device;
Social plugins (including those offered by Facebook, Twitter,
Pinterest, and Google) allow you to share information on those
platforms.
Social plugins and social applications are operated by the social network
themselves, and are subject to their terms of use and privacy policies.
Access to Your Account and Profiles
In order to provide you with ease of access to your account and to help
administer the Khonzel service, we use technology that enables us to
recognize you as the account holder and provide you with direct access to
your account without requiring you to retype any password or other user
identification when you revisit the Khonzel service. You can choose not
to take advantage of this feature on your computer by unchecking the box
"Remember me" when you log in to the website. Where possible, users of public
or shared devices should log out at the completion of each visit. If you
sell or return a computer or Khonzel ready device, you should log out and
deactivate the device before doing so. If you do not maintain the security
of your password or device, or fail to log out or deactivate your device,
subsequent users may be able to access your account, including your personal
information.
If you share or otherwise allow others to have access to your account, they
will be able to see your information (including in some cases personal
information) such as your watch history, ratings, reviews and account
information (including your email address or other information in Your
Account).
Your Information and Rights
You can request access to your personal information, or correct or update
out-of-date or inaccurate personal information we hold about you.
You can most easily do this by visiting the "Home" portion of our website,
where you have the ability to access and update a broad range of information
about your account, including your contact information, your Khonzel
payment information, and various related information about your account.
You must be signed in to access “Home". To make requests, or if you have
any other question regarding our privacy practices, please contact us at
privacy@khonzel.net. Please also see the Your Choices section of this
Privacy Statement for additional choices regarding your information.
We may reject requests that are unreasonable or not required by law,
including those that would be extremely impractical, could require
disproportionate technical effort, or could expose us to operational risks
such as free trial fraud. We may retain information as required or permitted
by applicable laws and regulations, including to honor your choices, for
our billing or records purposes and to fulfill the purposes described in
this Privacy Statement.
Security
We use reasonable administrative, logical, physical and managerial
measures to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft and
unauthorized access, use and modification. Unfortunately, no measures can
be guaranteed to provide 100% security. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee
the security of your information.
Other Websites, Platforms and Applications
The Khonzel service may be provided through and/or utilize features (such
as voice controls) operated by third party platforms, or contain links to
sites operated by third parties whose policies regarding the handling of
information may differ from ours. For example, you may be able to access
the Khonzel service through platforms such as gaming systems, smart TVs,
mobile devices, set top boxes and a number of other Internet connected
devices. These websites and platforms have separate and independent privacy
or data policies, privacy statements, notices and terms of use, which we

applications that interact with the Khonzel service.

only with the involvement, supervision, and approval of a parent or legal
guardian.
Changes to This Privacy Statement
We will update this Privacy Statement from time to time in response to
changing legal, regulatory or operational requirements. We will provide
notice of any such changes (including when they will take effect) in

Cookies and Internet Advertising
We and our Service Providers use cookies and other technologies (such as
web beacons) for various reasons. For example, we use cookies and other
technologies to make it easy to access our services by remembering you when
you return, to provide and analyze our services, to learn more about our
users and their likely interests, and to deliver and tailor marketing or
advertising. We want you to be informed about our use of these technologies,
so this notice explains the types of technologies we use, what they do and
your choices regarding their use.
1 What are cookies? Cookies are small data files that are commonly
stored on your device when you browse and use websites and online
services. They are widely used to make websites work, or to work more
efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information and assist
with service or advertising personalization. Cookies are not the
only types of technology that enable this functionality; we also use
other, similar types of technologies. See below for more information
and examples.
2 Why does Khonzel use cookies? We and our Service Providers may use
the following types of cookies:
Essential cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to
provide our website or online service. For example, we or our
Service Providers may use these cookies to authenticate and
identify our members when they use our websites and applications
so we can provide our service to them. They also help us to
enforce our Terms of Use, prevent fraud and maintain the
security of our service.
Performance and functionality cookies: These cookies are not
essential, but help us to personalize and enhance your online
experience with Khonzel. For example, they help us to remember
your preferences and prevent you from needing to re-enter
information you previously provided (for example, during member
sign up). We also use these cookies to collect information (such
as popular pages, conversion rates, viewing patterns,
click-through and other information) about our visitors' use
of the Khonzel service so that we can enhance and personalize
our website and service and conduct market research. Deletion
of these types of cookies will result in limited functionality
of our service.
Advertising cookies: These cookies use information about your
visit to this and other websites, such as the pages you visit,
your use of our service or your response to ads and emails, to
deliver ads that are more relevant to you. These types of ads
are called "Interest-Based Advertising." Many of the
advertising cookies associated with our service belong to our
Service Providers.
3 At this time, we do not respond to Web browser "do not track" signals.
4 How Does Khonzel use Web Beacons and other Technologies? Web beacons
(also known as clear gifs or pixel tags) often work in conjunction
with cookies. We and our Service Providers may use them for similar
purposes as cookies, such as to understand and enhance the use of our
service, improve site performance, monitor visitor traffic and
actions on our site, and understand interactions with our marketing
(including email and online ads on third party sites). Because web
beacons often work in conjunction with cookies, in many cases,
declining cookies will impair the effectiveness of web beacons. We
use other technologies that are similar to cookies, such as browser
storage and plugins (e.g., HTML5). Like cookies, some of these
technologies may store small amounts of data on your device. We may
use these and various other technologies for similar purposes as
cookies, such as to enforce our terms, prevent fraud, and analyze the
use of our service. There are a number of ways to exercise choice
regarding these technologies. For example, many popular browsers
provide the ability to clear browser storage, commonly in the settings
or preferences area; see your browser’s help function or support area
to learn more. Other technologies, such as Silverlight storage, may
be cleared from within the application.
