  • Trial Account Login
  • Since we understand that you may wish not to disclose your Personal Information for trying out our services, we provide you the option of a Trial Account Login for all Kwanzoo services. The contents created by you using the Trial Account Login may be accessible to other persons, especially if not properly secured with a personal password. Hence we specifically request you not to store your personal and sensitive information, files and documents while using the Trial Account Login as doing so may make them publicly available to other users and consequently may result in your receipt of unsolicited messages.

  • Information Recorded and Use:

    1. Personal Information

You will also be asked to choose a unique username and a password, which will be used solely for the purpose of providing access to your Kwanzoo Account. Your name and email address will be used to inform you regarding new services, releases, upcoming events and changes in this privacy policy. When you elect to register an account, you may also have the option to create an account by using your Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter or Gmail login information -third party platforms. In doing so, no personal information within your third party email or social platform accounts is transferred to your Kwanzoo account without your explicit consent and is provided as a convenience to you.
