kandipatterns.com is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement. kandipatterns.com may change this policy from time to time by updating this page.

What we collect

We may collect and/or store the following information:

  • Name
  • E-mail address
  • IP address
  • How you got to this website
  • Information on your activities and comments throughout the site - e.g. your comments on patterns, and "thumbs up" on pattern suggestions
  • Your comments and interactions with other members on the site (such as messages)

What we do with the information we gather

You are only asked to provide your name and e-mail address if you wish to access the "Adults only" patterns, which feature mature content. This is so that only registered members can access the content, and so that random visitors do not happen across it and associate sex and drugs with kandi. We will never sell your name or e-mail address, or give it to anyone. We may occasionally contact you if we have some news to share with you, but you can choose to opt-out of such e-mails at any time. Your IP address is stored to make sure that you are not abusing the services on this site, e.g. repeatedly asking for the same pattern pretending to be different people. We also keep track of your IP so that we can ban you from the site if you act in a manner that is not in accordance with our terms and conditions. We also reserve the right to read your messages at any time to determine if you are acting in a way that is not in accordance with our terms.


How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use cookies to personalise content and ads, to provide social media features and to analyse our traffic. We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to visitor needs.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Security

All passwords on the site are stored encrypted. This is for your security and means that if you forget your password you will have to reset it rather than have the plain text password sent to you. However, your connection to the site itself is not encrypted so any information you submit (via messages or comments, for example) could possibly be intercepted.

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.


Sharing your personal information with site members

Kandipatterns.com does not recommend the sharing of contact information and is not responsible for anything that occurs as a result of you sharing this information, trading with anyone, or meeting up with anyone you met on this website. Any information you submit is NOT transmitted over a secure connection and could be intercepted by a third party. It is also very common for people to scam others out of kandi on the internet.
