  Privacy Policy Terms and Conditions

Kern Trust is:

the cornerstone of every valuable relationship. We believe that when you consider purchasing a Kern product and visit our web site to conduct your research, that to us, is the beginning of a relationship. We want you to feel comfortable while you're conducting that research. We want you to feel confident that the information you find and that we collect, during the time you choose to share, will be treated with care. The first step in helping you to achieve that level of comfort and confidence is by explaining exactly what types of information we collect and why we collect it. It is our sincere hope that by being forthright in this communication of our Privacy Policy that the relationship we establish is a long-lasting one.


Kern Promise:
Kern will never share your personal information with non-affiliated third parties. When we refer to non-affiliated third parties we mean organizations outside of the Kern Organization or any Kern Affiliates. Kern may share your data with companies who provide data handling or other services to us, but such companies will be contractually bound not to use your information except for the purposes of our contract with them.


Normal Web Site Usage:
All information about our products are free to browse at your leisure without the need for you to provide us with any personal information. Your visit does generate a session log.  When you visit any Kern website, the server housing the pages automatically generates a "session log." The logs are used by the Kern organizational staff managing the sites to track the pages you visit or request. The only data gathered is the Internet Protocol (IP) address from which you came (which by the way, contains no personal information), the web site that referred you, the pages you visited and the date and time of those visits. We use session logs to help us determine how people navigate through our site. In this way, we can structure our pages so that the information most frequently visited is made easier to find. By tracking page visits, we can also determine if the information we're providing is being used.


Personal Information:
Before we get into how and why we gather information about you, be assured: We will never share your personal information with any non-affiliated third party (Please see earlier explanation of "non-affiliated".)  Personal information such as name, mailing address, e-mail address, and in some cases your phone number is collected to respond to your requests for future contact. There are obvious areas within our site where collecting personal information is unavoidable. For instance, when you request a brochure or download a video of how our products function. Some of the information we ask for is mandatory and required to fulfill the request. Other information we ask for is optional and we use that to help us better understand you and better define how we design and enhance our communication processes. 


Downloadable files:
What they are and how we use them. 
Downloading files refers to the act of choosing to receive a file or program from a web site. Examples are a web browser, a sound file, movie file or screensaver. Downloadable files are usually executables. Meaning that once they are downloaded, clicking on them launches or installs a program or deposits files on your computer. Whenever you download a file from a web site, you will always be given the choice of where you would like to save the file. Unless you explicitly trust the site delivering the downloadable, it is a good idea to save the file to disk before opening or activating it.


Requests from Law Enforcement Agencies:
Kern reserves the right to share information collected from our web site with law enforcement agencies who are in the process of conducting lawful investigations.
