If you access third-party services through the Company Service, these third-party services may be able to collect information about you, including information about your use of the Company Service or their third-party services, in accordance with their own privacy policies.

Individuals located in countries and regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from federal U.S. law should review the supplement below, which provides additional disclosures specific to those jurisdictions.

Your Choices:

You may decline to share certain Personal Information with us, in which case Kodiak may not be able to provide to you some or all of the features and functionality found on the Company Service. Please note that once you have shared information with others through the Company Service, it may be re-shared by the recipients, and your subsequent modification or removal of that information will not necessarily affect all copies previously propagated by others.

Data Retention:

We retain data for as long as we deem necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our rights and agreements. Where possible (and subject to the foregoing), we use reasonable efforts to respond promptly to requests to remove user data, but we do not delete from our records information that is in de-identified and anonymized form, where doing so would undermine the rights of others, archival copies in routine backups, or subject to other exemptions under applicable law.

Third-Party Services:

The Company Service contains links to websites and services provided by third parties. Any Personally Information you provide on third-party sites or services is provided directly to that third party and is subject to that third party’s policies, if any, governing privacy and security. We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of third-party sites or services to which links are displayed on the Company Service. We encourage you to learn about third parties’ privacy and security policies before providing them with Personal Information.

Do-Not-Track Signals and Similar Mechanisms. Some web browsers transmit “do-not-track” signals to websites. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not take action in response to these signals.

Data Security:

Kodiak employs certain physical and technical safeguards designed to improve the integrity and security of your Personal Information, some of which are described in further detail below. Nevertheless, no physical or technical system, transmission, or storage mechanism is 100% secure or immune from outages, losses, attacks, and human error. Therefore, we cannot ensure or warrant that information you transmit to the Company will not be lost or compromised.

Please revisit this page periodically to stay aware of any changes to this Privacy Policy, which may be revised from time to time.
