8. Severability and waiver
The invalidity of any term or provision of these Terms will not affect the validity of any other provision.

1. Information collection
RideKC collects information on the website at two different stages. First, we use server logs to collect anonymous, aggregate information (such as browser type, ISP, IP address, referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, number of clicks) from all visitors to the website. Our website also uses a standard technology called "cookies" to collect information about how the website is used. Information gathered through cookies may include the pages viewed and the amount of time spent at the website. This type of information is typically not linked to any personally identifiable information and is used primarily in the aggregate to generate statistical reports about the use of our website. RideKC does reserve the right to connect information collected through its server logs with other personally identifiable information.
Second, we require certain information when you use services available on the website. For example, when you contact us by email, we may collect your email address and any other personal information you provide. When you subscribe to one of our electronic newsletters, you must provide your name and a valid email address. You may also provide your address, telephone number and organizational affiliation, and you may choose to create a password for managing your account. If you purchase items from the online store, RideKC and its payment processing partner will collect additional information necessary for payment and delivery. If you apply for employment through the website, we will collect personal information such as your name, address and other employment-related information.
To unsubscribe from any of our email lists, simply click on the link labeled “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of any email from us.
2. Personal information of children under 13
RideKC complies with the requirements of the Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the FTC's Rule interpreting COPPA (16 CFR § 512). The website is not directed to children, and we do not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information on the website from children under 13 years of age.
3. Use of your personal information
RideKC does not sell, rent or disclose personally identifiable information to any third party not affiliated with us, except for disclosure to service providers who may assist us in such areas as data storage, and in accordance with Paragraph 4 below. However, users should be aware that RideKC is a public agency and personal information provided to RideKC may be subject to disclosure in accordance with public records laws. Information in anonymous, aggregated form may be shared freely. RideKC will not use your personal information to send you unsolicited commercial offers. However, we may need to contact you for certain purposes, as for example in response to your inquiry, or with a message regarding the status of the website.
4. Disclosure of personal information as required by law
We will disclose personal information when required by law, or if we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on us, (b) protect and defend our rights, or (c) protect the rights, property, and other interests of our users or others.
The website contains links to other sites. RideKC is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our website and to read the privacy statements and terms/conditions of use for each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the RideKC website.
We take reasonable precautions to protect your information. For example, we encrypt certain communications through our website with 128-bit encryption, the industry standard for strong encryption. However, given the nature of the Internet and the fact that network security measures are not infallible, we cannot guarantee the security of your information.
