We sometimes use IP addresses to identify the general location of Your computer based on publicly available and third-party information.

However, setting Your browser to reject cookies may, in certain instances, prevent You from taking full advantage of the Website and its capabilities, or cause some features of the Website to function improperly, slowly or not at all.
As noted, the Website also uses various third-party services, such as Google Analytics. Google utilizes the data collected to track and examine the use of the Website, to prepare reports on its activities and share them with other Google services.

a. Inquiries concerning the collection and deletion of Your personal information.
We understand that You may have certain questions about KELLS’ access and use of information that We have collected. Under some circumstances, You may be able to opt out of Our continued collection or use of Your personal information, and/or seek access to or deletion of personal information that We have collected about You in the past.
There are circumstances when KELLS will not be able to comply with such requests. For example, We may deny a request if We determine, in good faith, that We should not comply because: to do so would violate or conflict with KELLS’ legal obligations, including, but not limited to, legal obligations as to the preservation and non-disclosure of financial, medical or personal health information; the information is the privileged, proprietary or confidential information of KELLS or someone other than the person making the request; the identity or authority of the person making the request cannot be confirmed; compliance with the request would compromise the privacy or legal rights of others; the burden or expense of responding would be disproportionate to the requesting individual’s privacy risk; the information is commercially necessary for Us to complete transactions or provide products or services that the User requested; or to do so would impede KELLS’ detection, correction or prevention of any security incident, or intentional or non-intentional interference with the Website, products or services.
Additionally, under some circumstances, even if You opt out, non-personal information regarding your activities on the Website, and/or information from third-party websites for non-interest-based advertising purposes may be collected and used to determine the effectiveness of the advertisements.
