"Clickstream" data (e.g., information regarding which of our Website pages you access, the frequency of such access, and your product and service preferences) may be collected by KR itself, or by our service providers, using cookies, web beacons, page tags, or similar tools that are set when you visit the Website or when you view an advertisement we may have placed on another website.

How We Use These Technologies

We, our services providers, and third party business partners may use information collected from cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies for the following purposes:

to allow our Services to operate as you have requested; to understand how our Services are accessed and used; to recognize you when you return to our Website;

We may combine the information that we collect through cookies, web beacons and similar technologies with other personal information we have collected from you from both online and offline sources.
