How can you access and control your information?

When you delete information, it will be deleted permanently from our website server. We will not retain copies unless legally required, or as part of general website back-up procedures.
How do we protect your information?
Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
All transactions are processed through an external PCI compliant gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers. We only collect sensitive information such as credit card data if you explicitly save it under your account. Such information is always encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this either via the closed lock icon in your web browser or the https prefix at the beginning of our website address.
While the security of your Personal Information is important to us, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Newsletter / Kili – GATERS Community E-Mail campaigns
To send out E-Mail campaigns (“newsletter”), KiliGATE uses the newsletter service MailChimp. MailChimp is provided by The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 512 Means Street, Suite 404 Atlanta, GA 30318. The Rocket Science Group has signed the Save Harbor Agreement and is therefore bound to the so-called Safe Harbor Principles (principles that enable European organizations to legally share individual-related data with organizations in the U.S.). For details on Safe Harbor refer to http://export.gov/safeharbor/.
If you have registered for our “Kili – GATERS Community” newsletter, your E-Mail address will be stored with MailChimp. Besides that, no additional personal data is stored/transferred. MailChimp will not pass this personal data to any third party but if there exists a valid judicial claim. For detailed information on privacy in the context of MailChimp refer to http://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.
MailChimp enables KiliGATE to analyze newsletter campaigns. The analysis does not refer to individuals, but only to campaigns on the whole. So KiliGATE can, for example, analyze how much recipients have opened a newsletter or how much recipients have clicked on certain links within a newsletter. The results of the analysis will only be used to optimize future newsletter campaigns. Further, MailChimp provides KiliGATE with the possibility to integrate Google Analytics in newsletters. The same provisions as detailed in “Privacy Statement for Testify – Collection, Use and Sharing of Personal Information” apply.
Users who wish to no longer receive our newsletter may click on a link named “Unsubscribe” which is embedded with every email sent by KiliGATE or send an email with “unsubscribe” in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to not receive future E-Mails.
