Under What Circumstances Do We Collect Your Personal Information?
When you send us an e-mail request or inquiry through the “Contact Us” section of this Site, we obtain your name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address and other information relating to your inquiry/request. We also obtain Personal Information as part of our recruitment processes, and when you submit an online employment application form, you create an “Online Profile” of yourself and provide to us Personal Information, which includes your name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address and other employment-related information. Such Personal Information is only kept for the period required for fulfilling your request or dealing with your job application. We also may collect additional Personal Information from you from time to time through other forms on this Site, through e-mail correspondence, and through other online means. The information required will be the minimum to enable KCH to deal with your request. Where additional information is requested this will be marked and its provision is voluntary. Additional information is only requested to enable us to provide the most appropriate response to your request. Sensitive information is not sought through this Site except where legally required as part of the recruitment process. Sensitive information includes data relating to: race or ethnic origin; political opinions; religious or other similar beliefs; physical or mental health; sexual orientation or criminal record. Where you do provide sensitive information this will be accepted as explicit consent to use that information in connection with the purpose for which it has been provided.

Do We Use Web Bugs?
We may use “web bugs” (described in more detail below) in this Site or in our communications with you to verify your viewing and/or receipt of communications. A “web bug” is typically a one-pixel, transparent image (although it can be a visible image as well), located on a Web page or in an e-mail, which is retrieved from a remote site on the Internet enabling the verification of an individual’s viewing or receipt of a Web page or e-mail message.
