8 Protection of Personal Information
We have implemented industry-standard measures to protect the security of the Personal Information We collect via the myKlovr Platform.

If We determine that Your Personal Information was accessed in an improper manner, We will comply with applicable laws as We understand them and will cooperate with internal investigators or law enforcement (including by possibly disclosing Your Personal Information to such investigators or law enforcement agencies).
Given the nature of the Internet, Your Personal Information passes through entities that we are unable to control. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that our security measures or those of third parties who access or transmit Your Information will prevent Your Information from being improperly accessed, stolen or altered. As required by applicable federal and state laws, we will notify You by email and any applicable regulatory agencies if we learn of an information security breach of Your Information. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and to engage in remedial measures.

Specifically, You authorize us to give access to Your account and Your Personal Information to any person who presents Your Access Credentials. To secure the privacy and control of Your Personal Information, You bear the entire responsibility for securing, preventing the disclosure of, and not sharing Your Access Credentials.
Part of Your responsibility to secure Your access credentials requires that You use an effective, secure, hard-to-guess password. We strongly advise that Your password be at least 8 characters long, include upper- and lower-case letters, at least one digit, and at least one symbol (e.g.; period, comma, hyphen, etc.), and that Your password not contain repeated characters or digits (e.g.; ‘aaaaa’ or ‘22222’), sequences of letters or digits (e.g.; ‘abcd’, ‘qwerty’, ‘1234’, etc.), common words or phrases (e.g.; ‘Password’, ‘secret’, ‘iloveyou’, etc.) or information readily obtained from Your social media presence (e.g.; Your date of birth, home-town, pet’s or spouse’s name, favorite band or car, etc.).
To the maximum extent permitted by law, We disclaim any responsibility or liability from any misuse of Your Personal Information resulting from illegal, improper, negligent, malicious, or inappropriate acts or omissions by You or any third party, or from any conduct other than willful misconduct by Us.

The CCPA gives You the right not to be discriminated against because You have elected not to have Your Personal Information sold.
If You elect not to have Your Personal Information disclosed or sold, then we will be unable to provide certain valuable services that are available to other myKlovr Application users that involve disclosing Your Personal Information, for example being introduced to colleges which are seeking students such as You, or being introduced to service providers that help students finance their college educations or obtain vocational training.
