Privacy Policy for  Mobile Applications


We are committed to protecting your privacy and we will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully in accordance with USA Data Protection Laws. We collect information about you for two reasons: first to process your order and second to provide you with the best possible service. We will not email you in the future unless you have given your consent. The type of information we will collect about you after submitting the order form includes your name, address, phone number and email address. You can check the information held by us about you by entering Customer Service System at our application. If you find any inaccuracies you will able to correct it promptly. We never pass on customer details to other companies or organizations for any purpose.

We integrate Google Analytics service to our apps because we want our apps and promotions to be relevant and interesting for you. We collect data on the app purchase/refund, conversion data, online sources where our customers come from without collecting any information that personally identifies you, such as name, email address or any other personal information that could be used to contact you or identifies who you are. We do not share this information with any third parties.

PenReader handwriting recognition app

PenReader app converts any text (whether written with a finger or stylus) into printed one with the highest accuracy and speed. The app neither collects nor saves the information entered with a finger or stylus; it only saves the words added to the custom dictionary. We do not use the information added to the custom dictionary and do not share this information with any third parties.

Data collection

KF processes Users' information for the purpose of dealing with inquiries and for maintaining existing relations. Personal information about the Users will not be used for any purpose which is unrelated to the use of the services unless specifically authorized by the User.

Security and our partners outside USA

All personal and credit card information is encoded using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology before being sent over the Internet.
We use encryption where possible to avoid exposing usernames, passwords, credit card numbers, or other sensitive information on the open Internet.
This website does not collect credit card information or billing details directly. For this service, we rely on PayPal. For PayPal privacy policy please click here.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted through the Internet; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your data, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

Legally Required Disclosure and Transfer in a Corporate Transaction

We reserve the right to disclose the Users' personal information if we are required to do so by law or if we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process. We also reserve the rights to transfer the personal information in case of a corporate restructuring (such as a merger or acquisition) as long as the receiving entity adopts this or stricter privacy policy that applies to the User's information.

Changes to this policy

We constantly strive to provide the best products and services. As the Internet is a dynamic and ever-changing medium and as new or changed products and services are released and threats and technologies evolve, changes to this policy may be required. We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Policy at any time. We expect most such changes to be minor, but there may be cases where changes may be more significant, and in such cases, we will first provide prominent notice to Users who are affected by such changes. We urge Users to examine this policy for changes when using this site. Posting the modified Privacy Policy on www.thekf.org online resources will give effect to the revised terms. The continued use of this online resource indicates Users' acceptance of any revised terms. If a User does not agree to the revised policy, we recommend refraining from using this online resource and/or leave this online resource.

Governing Law

To the extent that it is lawful, you agree that this privacy policy shall be exclusively governed by the laws of United States of America and shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of United States of America.

Anti-Spamming / AntI-Malware

We will make every reasonable effort to ensure that our website and servers are not exploited by people who seek to deliver unsolicited commercial messages, propaganda, or software meant to subvert the security of your computer. We do this by keeping our server software up to date, and by following strict system administration policies.

Our servers are operated by the Fund for the City of New York, contact compop@fcny.org immediately if you suspect that this site has been "hacked" or compromised in any way.

Server Logs vs. Privacy

The KF compiles and maintains industry-standard logs of all server activity in order to fine-tune our services and to provide abstract information about usage patterns on our sites.

A close audit of these logs, combined with the cooperation of your ISP, could theoretically be used to identify you. We will only undertake such an investigation in order to stop harassment of, or denial of services to, other Internet users.

Public pages on this website also make use of Google Analytics, a service which collects similar information about website usage using Google's servers. Please visit Google's Privacy Center (and see their Privacy Policy) for more details.

Form Responses vs. Privacy

The information which you submit to the KF via web forms or email becomes part of our institutional communications archive. This information is kept private during the normal course of business, but may someday be released publicly due to legal action or for historical/research purposes. Please do not use the web or email to communicate information which must never be disclosed; or if you do, please take appropriate measures to dissociate such communication from your identity. One way to do this is to use an anonymous proxy, see this article as a starting point for finding such a resource.

Note that the kind of information we are concerned with above includes "whistle-blowing" or anonymous tips meant for administrative follow-up, unauthorized disclosure of sensitive documents, or the use of personal information if disclosure of such information would put you at physical risk.

The Kosciuszko Foundation website includes articles, editorials, photos, audio, and video from a wide variety of sources. We make every effort to ensure that we have the right to publish, republish, or embed this material in our website.
