Although the Foundation has certain security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information you provide, no email or web transmission is completely secure against interception or incorrect routing. Thus, there is always the risk that unauthorized persons may access or use your personally identifiable information. You should exercise care and good judgment when transmitting data over the Internet or filling out forms for any website. If you are worried because your communication is very sensitive, please contact us as indicated in the “How to Contact Us” section below to coordinate sending your information via encrypted email.
We encourage everyone to visit this website and learn about the Foundation. Our website is not designed for or directed to individuals under the age of 13. No information should be submitted nor posted to the Website by individuals under the age of 13 without express parental consent. For example, if you are under 13, parental consent is required to submit a Koch Cultural Trust application. In certain jurisdictions, notification, prior written permission, or other verifiable consent may be required of a parent or guardian for children from 13 to 17 years of age. If you believe your child has provided us with information without your consent, please email us at address set forth in the “How to Contact Us” section below. In connection with the submission of a scholarship application, children are only eligible to register to use the services of the Foundation in conjunction with a parent or guardian. Parents or guardians should become knowledgeable about software and other tools so they can assure that children’s use of the Internet reflects parental preferences and requirements.
Keeping your account information and preferences up to date is very important to us. You have rights over your personal information may include the right to review your information, request that we stop using it or remove it from our database (thereby canceling your registration), or update your account information. The Foundation will provide you with all of your personal information provided at registration or application submission upon request. This information will only be sent to the email address on file for the subscriber ID associated with it. You can request this by logging in and accessing the account profile section of each online service for which you have registered. If you cannot locate, access or make desired changes to the information or permissions online, you may send a request by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, we cannot track down “de-identified” information to change it or undo any prior use of data we already used with your actual or implied consent.
