Privacy Policy

Kosmatka, Donnelly & Co. LLP and KDCO Financial Services, LLC Privacy Statement
Thank you for visiting the Kosmatka, Donnelly & Co. LLP website. Your privacy is important to us. We have created this statement so you know how we protect and use the information obtained from our website. This statement applies to the http://www.kdcocpa.com website which contains information about Kosmatka, Donnelly & Co. LLP, and KDCO Financial Services, LLC.  Both entities shall be referred to jointly as “KDCO.”

KDCO is dedicated to protecting the confidentiality and privacy of information entrusted to it. As part of this fundamental obligation, KDCO is committed to the appropriate protection and use of personal information (sometimes referred to as “personally identifiable information” or “PII”) that has been collected through its website.

Generally, our intent is to collect only the personal information that is provided voluntarily by visitors to our website so that we can offer information and/or services to those individuals. Please review this Privacy Statement (“Privacy Statement”) to learn more about how we collect, use, share and protect the PII that we have obtained.

Collection and use of PII
We obtain personal information about you if you choose to provide it — for example, to contact mailboxes or to register for certain services. In some cases, you may have previously provided your PII to KDCO. By registering and/or submitting personal information on our website, you are also agreeing to the use of this information in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Your personal information is not used for other purposes, unless we obtain your permission, or unless otherwise required or permitted by law or professional standards. For example, if you send us an email message requesting information about KDCO, we will use your email address and other information you supply to respond to your request.

KDCO generally collects only the personal information necessary to fulfill
the visitor’s request. Where additional, optional information is sought, you will be notified of this at
the point of collection.

IP addresses
An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the internet. It allows computers and servers to recognize and communicate with one another. IP addresses from which visitors appear to originate may be recorded for IT security and system diagnostic purposes. This information may also be used in aggregate form to conduct website trends and performance analysis.

Sharing and transfer of PII
We do not share personal information with unaffiliated third parties, except as necessary for our legitimate professional and business needs, to carry out your requests, and/or as required or permitted by law or professional standards.

In some instances, KDCO may also share PII about you with various outside companies or service providers or vendors working on our behalf to help fulfill your requests.

KDCO may also disclose PII in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of the site to which the data relates, in order to respond to requests of government or law enforcement agencies or where this is required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations. These disclosures may also be needed for data privacy or security audits and/or to investigate or respond to a complaint or security threat. KDCO does not sell PII to any third parties. Also, KDCO will not transfer the PII you provide to any third parties for their own direct marketing use.

Children
KDCO understands the importance of protecting children's privacy, especially in an online environment. In particular, our sites are not intentionally designed for or directed at children under the age of 13. It is our policy never to knowingly collect or maintain information about anyone under the age of 13, except as part of an engagement to provide professional services.

Choices
You have several choices regarding your use of our sites. In general, you are not required to submit any PII when you visit our website, but KDCO may require you to provide certain PII in order for you to receive additional information about our services and events. Certain websites may also ask for your permission for certain uses of your PII, and you can agree to or decline those uses. If you opt-in for particular services or communications, such as an e-newsletter, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included in each communication. If you decide to unsubscribe from a service or communication, we will try to remove your information promptly, although we may require additional information before we can process your request.

As described above, if you wish to prevent cookies from tracking you as you navigate our sites, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Note, however, that some portions of our sites may not work properly if you elect to refuse cookies.

Access
If you have submitted personal information to KDCO, under most circumstances you have the right to reasonable access to that data to correct any inaccuracies. You can also make a request to update or remove information about you by contacting webmaster@kdcocpa.com and we will make all reasonable and practical efforts to comply with your request, so long as it is consistent with applicable law and professional standards.

Data security and integrity
KDCO has reasonable security policies and procedures in place to protect personal information from unauthorized loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Despite KDCO’s best efforts, however, security cannot be absolutely guaranteed against all threats. To the best of our ability, access to your personal information is limited to those who have a need to know. Those individuals who have access to the data are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information. We also make reasonable efforts to retain personal information only for so long as the information is necessary to comply with an individual’s request or until that person asks that the information be deleted.

Links to other sites
Please be aware that KDCO’s website may contain links to other sites. We encourage users to review the privacy policy of each website visited before disclosing any personal information.

Changes to this policy
KDCO may modify this Privacy Statement from time to time to reflect our current privacy practices. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Statement to be informed about how KDCO is protecting your information.
