We know that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly.
This Privacy Notice describes how KNOSS.com and its affiliates (collectively "KNOSS") collect and process your personal information through KNOSS websites, devices, products, services,
online and physical stores, and applications that reference this Privacy Notice (together "KNOSS"). By using KNOSS, you are consenting to the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

Here are the types of personal information we collect:

Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you provide in relation to KNOSS. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of KNOSS services.
Automatic Information: We automatically collect and store certain types of information about your use of KNOSS, including information about your interaction with content and services available through KNOSS. Like many websites, we use "cookies" and other unique identifiers, and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser or device accesses KNOSS and other content served by or on behalf of KNOSS on other websites.
Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources, such as updated delivery and address information from our carriers, which we use to correct our records and deliver your next purchase more easily.

For What Purposes Does KNOSS Use Your Personal Information?

We use your personal information to operate, provide, develop, and improve the products and services that we offer our customers. These purposes include:
Purchase and delivery of products and services. We use your personal information to take and handle orders, deliver products and services, process payments, and communicate with you about orders, products and services, and promotional offers.
Recommendations and personalization. We use your personal information to recommend features, products, and services that might be of interest to you, identify your preferences, and personalize your experience with KNOSS.
Provide voice, image, and camera services. When you use our voice, image and camera services, we use your voice input, images, videos, and other personal information to respond to your requests, provide the requested service to you, and improve our services.
Comply with legal obligations. In certain cases, we collect and use your personal information to comply with laws. For instance, we collect from sellers information regarding place of establishment and bank account information for identity verification and other purposes.
Communicate with you. We use your personal information to communicate with you in relation to KNOSS via different channels (e.g., by phone, email, chat).
Advertising. We use your personal information to display interest-based ads for features, products, and services that might be of interest to you. We do not use information that personally identifies you to display interest-based ads.
Fraud Prevention and Credit Risks. We use personal information to prevent and detect fraud and abuse in order to protect the security of our customers, KNOSS, and others. We may also use scoring methods to assess and manage credit risks.

What About Cookies and Other Identifiers?

To enable our systems to recognize your browser or device and to provide and improve KNOSS, we use cookies and other identifiers.

Does KNOSS Share Your Personal Information?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling our customers' personal information to others. We share customers' personal information only as described below and with subsidiaries KNOSS.com, Inc. controls that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.
Transactions involving Third Parties: We make available to you, services, products, applications, or skills provided by third parties for use on or through KNOSS. We also offer services or sell product lines jointly with third-party businesses, such as co-branded credit cards. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we share customers' personal information related to those transactions with that third party.
Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders for products or services, delivering packages, sending postal mail and email, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing payments, transmitting content, scoring, assessing and managing credit risk, and providing customer service. These third-party service providers have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes.
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy other businesses or services. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that KNOSS.com, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

We design our systems with your security and privacy in mind.

We work to protect the security of your personal information during transmission by using encryption protocols and software. We follow the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) when handling credit card data. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage, and disclosure of customer personal information. Our security procedures mean that we may ask to verify your identity before we disclose personal information to you. Our devices offer security features to protect them against unauthorized access and loss of data. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computers, devices, and applications. We recommend using a unique password for your KNOSS account that is not used for other online accounts. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

What About Advertising?

Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites: KNOSS may include third-party advertising and links to other websites and apps. Third-party advertising partners may collect information about you when you interact with their content, advertising, and services. We never share your name or other information that directly identifies you when we do this. Instead, we use an advertising identifier like a cookie or other device identifier.

What Information Can I Access?

You can access your information, including your name, address, payment options, profile information, and purchase history in the "My Account" section of the website.

What Choices Do I Have?

  • If you have any questions as to how we collect and use your personal information, please contact our Customer Service.
  • If you do not want to receive email or other communications from us, please contact our Customer Service.
  • The Help feature on most browsers and devices will tell you how to prevent your browser or device from accepting new cookies or other identifiers, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to block cookies altogether. Because cookies and identifiers allow you to take advantage of some essential features of KNOSS, we recommend that you leave them turned on.
  • If you want to browse our websites without linking the browsing history to your account, you may do so by logging out of your account here and blocking cookies on your browser.
  • For most devices, these controls are located in the device's settings menu. If you have questions about how to change your device permissions on devices manufactured by third parties, we recommend you contact your mobile service carrier or your device manufacturer.
  • To the extent required by applicable law, you may have the right to request access to or delete your personal information. If you wish to do any of these things, please contact Customer Service. Depending on your data choices, certain services may be limited or unavailable.
