15Kv Design, LLC ("15Kv Design") values our clients and respects their privacy. We collect information about you through our website ("15Kv.com" or "Web Site") in an effort to improve your shopping experience and to communicate with you about our products, services and promotions. Neither your name nor anything about you is sold or shared with any other non-affiliated company or agency. However, as described in greater detail below, we may share your information under certain circumstances with business partners that help this site function or assist us in fulfilling your order. This Privacy and Usage Policy only covers information collected at this Web Site.

This policy describes the personal information we collect about you, why we collect it, how we use it, and when we share it with third parties. Our policy also describes the choices you can make about how we collect and use certain of that information. If our information practices change, we will post an updated policy on our website. You can tell if the policy has changed by checking the revision date that appears on this policy.

Types of Information Collected

We sometimes ask you for certain kinds of personal information to provide the services you request. This information includes:

Others With Whom We May Share Your Information

Service Providers: We also may disclose information to outside companies that help us bring you the products and services we offer. For example, we may work with an outside company to: (a) assist us with data collection; (b) provide us data storage and analysis; (c) provide fraud prevention; and (d) other services designed to assist us in maximizing our business potential. These outside companies agree to keep confidential all information we share with them and to use the information only to perform their obligations in the agreements.

Compliance with Law: We may provide access to information when legally required to do so, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Web Site, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors of this Web Site or the public.

Links to Other Sites

While visiting our Web Site, you may link to sites operated by our business partners or other third parties. This does not mean that we endorse these sites. We do not make any representations or warranties about any website you may access through the 15Kv Design Web Site. They are independent from us, and we have no control over, or responsibility for, their information or activities.

In addition, our privacy practices may differ from those of these other sites. If you provide personal information at one of those sites, you are subject to the privacy policy of the operator of that site, not the 15Kv Design Privacy and Usage Policy. Please make sure you understand the other site's privacy policy before providing personal information.


Several of our functions use cookies. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a website that is saved on your hard drive by your computer's browser. Cookies help us remember you when you return to our website. Cookies also hold information a site may need to personalize/enhance your experience and to gather website statistical data, such as which pages are visited, what is included in your shopping cart, the Internet provider's domain name and the addresses of the sites visited immediately before coming to and immediately after leaving www.15Kv.com. However, none of this information is associated with you as an individual. It is measured anonymously and only in the aggregate. The information in the cookies lets 15Kv Design trace your "clickstream" activity (i.e., the paths taken by visitors to our site as they move from page to page) to enable us to better serve our customers by revealing which portions of our site are the most popular. Cookies contain absolutely no personal information. You may disable cookies on your browser. Please review your browser's instructions for doing so.

We also work with business partners that use tracking technologies to deliver advertisements on our behalf across the Internet. These companies may collect information about your visits to our Web Site and your interaction with our advertising and other communications.

We may combine the information we collect through cookies with other information we have collected from you. This information may be used to improve our Web Site, to personalize your online experience, to help us deliver information to you, to determine the effectiveness of our advertising, and for other internal business purposes.

Your Security

15Kv Design makes reasonable efforts to keep your personal information private and safe. We take appropriate physical, electronic and administrative steps to maintain the security and accuracy of personally identifiable information we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as employing electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. 15Kv Design operates over a private, secure network. Please note, however, that e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting credit card information. In addition, it is our policy never to send your credit card number via email.

Because we use PayPal as our authorized 3rd party payment processor, 15Kv Design does not see, have access to, collect or maintain your personal financial information, including your credit card information.

We use Secure Socket Layers (SSL), the industry standard in transferring information to process your orders. The SSL encrypts, or translates, your order information into a highly indecipherable code, which is processed immediately. All credit card transactions occur in a secure area of our payment processing partner PayPal, to protect you from any loss, misuse or alteration of information collected. When you have finished shopping and begin the checkout process, you will move into the secure area of the Paypal website. Once you've entered, the page address (URL) will change from http to https, to let you know you are in a secure area. Also, a key or a closed lock will appear in the lower right hand corner of your screen to notify you of this change. You will remain in this secure zone for the entire checkout process. Please note, however, that when you are browsing on the 15Kv Design Web Site, you are not in a secure zone, as will be evidenced by the lack of a key or closed lock in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Similarly, the page address (URL) will reflect http to let you know that you are not in a secure area.

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, the transmission of data over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we will use every reasonable means to ensure the security of information you transmit to us, we cannot guarantee that such information will not be intercepted by third parties. We will, however, prosecute any unauthorized or fraudulent transactions to the fullest extent permitted by law.


You may receive promotional emails from us unless you have asked not to receive them. If you do not want to receive email from 15Kv Design, please contact us at info at 15Kv.com or at 1.415.751.2444. Please allow us 10 business days from when the request was received to complete the removal, as some of our promotions may already have been in process before you submitted your request.

"Spoofing" and "Phishing"

A common Internet scam is known as "spoofing" or "phishing." This occurs when you receive an email from what appears to be a legitimate source requesting personal information from you. Please be aware that 15Kv Design will NEVER send you an email requesting you to verify credit card, bank information, or any other personal information. If you ever receive an email that appears to be from us requesting such information from you, DO NOT respond to it, and DO NOT click on any links appearing in the email. Instead, please forward the email to us at info at15Kv dot com, as we will investigate all instances of possible Internet fraud.


Our Web Site is not meant for children, and we will not collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without verified parental consent. We will remove from our files any personally identifiable information of anyone we discover to be under 13 years old.
