Collection of Personal Information
The KW4 Navigator does not collect information that personally identifies individuals
except when individuals provide such specific information on a voluntary basis. In all
such instances, the KW4 Navigator will collect only information that is voluntarily
provided by its users and undertakes that such information will not be sold or made

and characteristics, in order to measure interest in and use of the various sections of
the KW4 Navigator so as to improve design and navigation. Only aggregated data from
these analyses, and not individual data, will be used for this purpose.

Users should be aware that certain non-personal information and data may be
automatically collected by the KW4 Navigator through the operation of what are called
“cookies”. “Cookies” are small text files that identify an individual computers’ and other
devices’ browsers entering an application or website. They allow the site to track
movement through the website or application over several sessions. Through cookies, a

use of the website or application and allow a site to track usage behaviour that will allow
content improvements. The KW4 Navigator uses cookies only for the above-mentioned

purposes and will not use them to identify users or to track usage other than on the
KW4 Navigator. If you do not want a cookie placed on your device by the KW4
Navigator, you may disable cookies altogether by modifying the “Preferences” section of

Navigator may be unavailable to you if you choose this option.
