This policy generally describes KMS’ gathering and dissemination practices for our website: www.kmsonline.org and some of your responsibilities in using our website. The purpose of this policy is to generally inform you about the types of information we gather about you, how we use that information, and whether we disclose the information.
Information written and displayed on this website is the property of the Kansas Medical Society and may not be reproduced or distributed without permission from the Kansas Medical Society.

Information KMS collects
KMS’ collection and storage of information about you depends, in part, on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. You can visit many pages on the web site without providing any information. Other pages may prompt you to provide personal information, such as when you register for access to portions of our site.
You may also provide information when you request information from us, register online, etc. KMS also collects information automatically when you access its website and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use “cookie” technology. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies. Disabling “cookies”, however, may limit your ability to access certain portions of the site. Additionally we may not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.
What KMS does with the information it collects
KMS will use your information only as permitted by law. Aggregated information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. As one example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive. Aggregated information may occasionally be shared with KMS' advertisers and business partners.
KMS may collect personal information about you through various technologies for the purpose of enhancing your visit to this web site and to make the visit more efficient and productive. KMS may also use this information to respond to inquiries.
KMS does not sell your personally identifiable information to third parties. When you provide personally identifiable information to us, however, we may share it with our business partners and third-party contractors solely for the purpose of fulfilling your requests or offering our products and services.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, KMS reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as KMS determines, in its sole discretion, to be necessary to satisfy any law, regulation, governmental request, or business need or to avoid liability for KMS or any third party.
KMS may modify, suspend, discontinue or restrict the use of any portion of kmsonline.org and its related sites, including the availability of any portion of the content at any time, without notice or liability. KMS may deny access to any person or user at any time for any reason. In addition, KMS may at any time transfer rights and obligations under this policy to any subsidiary or business unit of KMS or any of its affiliated companies or divisions, or any entity that acquires KMS or any of its assets.
