WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY

If the option for USERS to leave comments on a KC360 WEBSITE is available – via activity feeds, forums, discussions threads, direct messages, blog posts, learning management systems or community engagement or the like – then we may collect the data and USERS IP address and browser user agent string to help manage spam detection.

CONTACT FORMS OR SIGNUP
For KC360 educational services, information crucial to KC360’s ability to provide you with the very best service possible is collected when you signup for KC360’s consulting services and memberships and occasionally via other permission-based marketing, either through email contact with you or via www.kc360.co. This information is kept confidential and is only shared with selected parties with your permission: i.e. KC360 featured universities.
