Information we collect and how we collect it:
Information collected automatically: When you use Kromatic, we may collect but do not store certain information about your computer or mobile device and your activities. This information includes:
- Offline Collection. We may collect information offline, where we also try to protect the privacy of your personal information. One example involves someone calling us to receive free advice during our office hours. When someone calls, we will ask only for the personal information we need in order to give advice. When we need to store information (such as order information), we will enter it into our database through SSL encryption. There are other ways we could learn of personal information offline and this Policy doesn’t discuss or try to predict all of those methods or uses.
Information you choose to provide:

However, we reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to Kromatic such as service announcements, security alerts, update notices, or other administrative messages) without affording you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such communications.
