Information We Collect and How We Collect It
When you access the Website, its content and its services, we will learn certain information about you during your visit. We collect this information:
- Directly from you when you provide it to us.
- Automatically as you navigate through the Website. Information collected automatically may include usage details, IP addresses and information collected through cookies, web beacons and other tracking technologies.
- From third parties, for example, our business partners.
If you are located in the European Economic Area (EEA), this means we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union (including in the United Kingdom) and we are responsible as data controller of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.
Information You Provide to Us
The Website provides various places for visitors to provide information. We collect information when you voluntarily sign up for our e-mails or e-mail newsletter, fill out any type of form on the Website including a contact form, leave comments including on Peter Beck Kim’s social media, purchase a service or product through our Website, or otherwise contact us via an online form located on our Website or e-mail. The information collected may include your name, e-mail, phone number, records and copies of your correspondence such as messages together with your e-mail address and our responses, your contributions to public areas of the Website, and if you have made a purchase through the Website, your address, billing information, and details of purchase transactions you carry out through the Website (collectively, “personal information”). You are not required to provide any personal information to merely access or visit the Website.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online – for example on message boards, web logs, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.
Information We Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technology
As you visit and navigate through the Website, we may use automatic data collection technologies such as “cookies” (small files saved on your hard drive by your web browser), such as Google Analytics or the Facebook ad pixel or others, to collect certain nonpersonal information about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns. This nonpersonal information will generally include information about your location, your traffic pattern through our Website, and any communications between your computer and our Website. Among other things, we may collect data about your computer hardware and software, your Internet connection, your IP address, your operating system, your browser type, domain names, access dates and times, referring website addresses, and information about the areas of the Website you visit and search terms you use on this Website and about the links you may select from within this Website to other areas of the Internet. We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking) such as the websites you visited just before and just after this Website.
The information we collect automatically is used for statistical data and will not include personal information. We use such technologies and the information collected by them to improve the Website and our service as it enables us to analyze Website performance, estimate our audience size, track usage patterns, save information from your previous visits about your preferences to customize your experience and speed up your searches and recognize you when you return to our Website.
To the extent that you voluntarily provide personal information to us, our systems will associate the automatically collected information with your personal information.
We also reserve the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. We reserve the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.
If your browser sends a “Do Not Track” signal, only a generic cookie will be placed on your device while the Website is accessed.
Information Collected from Third Parties
In addition to the information that you provide or that we collect through automatic data collection technology such as cookies, we may verify or collect certain information about you from third parties. For example, if we use a third-party survey software to gather information and you submit information to such third party, that third party may then pass it along to us.
How We Use Your Information
We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personal information, to send you e-mails when you sign up for our newsletter or request information from us, to respond to your comments and questions and to provide support that your request, to provide you with information about our services, to notify you about changes to our Website, to provide you with information, products or services you request from us, to carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, in any other way we may describe when you provide the information, to provide us with an overview of how people are accessing and using this Website, to understand and analyze usage trends and preferences of our visitors and users so that we can improve our service and develop new products, services, features and functionalities and improve our Website performance and customer service.

Email Policies and CAN-SPAM Act
We are committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. We do not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to third parties, and will not disclose your e-mail address to any third parties except as allowed in the section titled Disclosure of Your Information: Who We Share Your Information With. We will maintain the information you send via e-mail in accordance with applicable federal law.
In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all e-mails sent from Peter Beck Kim will clearly state who the e-mail is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all e-mail messages provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving future communications from us by clicking on the unsubscribe link located at the bottom of any e-mail they receive from us at any time. After unsubscribing we will discontinue sending the messages as soon as technically feasible.
Disclosure of Your Information: Who We Share Your Information With
Peter Beck Kim respects your privacy and we do not sell, rent, lease, trade or otherwise transfer any information collected whether automatically or through your voluntary action to third parties (beyond what is necessary for the basic functionality of an online service or for fulfilling a customer transaction if applicable) without your consent.
- To our subsidiaries and affiliates.
- To third parties including, for example: contractors, service providers and ‘data processors’ as described below, that we use to support our business and our Website. Examples of such service providers include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, and/or content for sending email, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, and processing payments (including credit card payments). Access to your personal information by these service providers is limited to the information reasonably necessary to perform such service provider’s limited function, and all such third parties will always be bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them.
- To any successor in interest in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of Peter Beck Kim’s asserts and/or business.
- If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Peter Beck Kim, other users of the Website or the general public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
- To comply with any legal obligations such as court order, law or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request and when compelled by a court or other governmental entity to do so.
- For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.
- With your consent.
We are the ‘data controller” of any personal information collected through the Website and determine the purposes for which and the manner in which any personal information is used and processed. However, we pay for the services of third party ‘data processors’ who hold and/or process personal information of users of the Website on our behalf. We may have multiple data processors at any given time, including, but not limited to: our email marketing and email management software service provider, our Website hosting service provider, our Website platform service provider, various payment merchants if we offer an option to purchase through our Website, Google, Facebook and other social media sites.
Note that, while the above entities act as data processors on our behalf, some or all of them may also act as data controllers in their own rights. For example, if you purchase a product or service through our Website, payment merchants decide which information they need from our customers in order to process their payments correctly. The payment merchants or other data processing entities may also exercise control over the other purposes that a customer’s data is used for, for example direct marketing of their products and services, which is not within our control. The payment merchants or other data processing entities also have legal requirements of their own to meet, such as regulations relating to the use and retention of payment card data or other personal data. And, finally, each data processor has its own terms and conditions and privacy policies that apply directly to our Website users.
Use and Transfer of Your Information Out of the European Economic Area (EEA)
This Website is operated in the United States and third parties with whom we might share your personal information as explained above are also located in the United States. If you are located in the EEA or elsewhere outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide will be transferred to the United States. By using this Website, participating in any of its services and/or providing your information, you consent to this transfer.
The United States does not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA. While the European Commission has not given a formal decision that United States provides an adequate level of data protection similar to those which apply in the United Kingdom and EEA, any transfer of your personal information will be subject to the derogation in Article 49 permitting non-repetitive transfers that concern only a limited number of data subjects, as permitted by Article 49 of the General Data Protection Regulation that is designed to help safeguard your privacy rights and give you remedies in the unlikely event of a misuse of your personal information.
If you would like further information, see How to Contact Us below. We will not otherwise transfer your personal data outside of the United Kingdom or EEA or to any organization (or subordinate bodies) governed by public international law or which is set up under any agreement between two or more countries.
How Long Your Personal Information Will Be Kept
We will retain all non-customer personal information until you let us know you would like for us to delete it or unsubscribe from our e-mail contacts, which you are free to do at any time. However, if you make a purchase from our Website, we will hold personal data in our files for six years as advised by the IRS.
How We Protect Your Information: Data Security and Information Storage
We employ commercially reasonable methods to ensure the security of the information you provide to us and the information we collect automatically. This includes using standard security protocols and working only with reputable third-party vendors. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorized manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
E-mail is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by e-mail. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk.
Whenever Peter Beck Kim collects sensitive personal information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to Peter Beck Kim in a secure way. Customers can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of their web browser or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
However, unfortunately, please note that no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. You acknowledge that (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Website cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered within transit by a third party. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.
We will notify you and any applicable authorities of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
Please note that any comments or information that you post on the Website, including Peter Beck Kim social media pages, become public and third parties may use your information.

Peter Beck Kim cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to protect your username, password or account information. If you share your username or password with others, they may be able to obtain access to your personal information, therefore you do this at your own risk.
You agree to notify Peter Beck Kim immediately of any unauthorized or improper use of your username or password or account or any other breach of security. To help protect against unauthorized or improper use, make sure that you log out of your account at the end of each session requiring your username and password.
We will use our best efforts to keep your username and password(s) private and will not otherwise share your password(s) without your consent, except as necessary when the law requires it or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary, particularly when disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to others or interfering with our rights or property.
Message Boards And Chats

You should be aware that any information which you post to these interactive forums or otherwise choose to make publicly available, including your personal information, may be disclosed and available to all users who have access to that portion of the Website, and is therefore no longer private.
