This Privacy Policy outlines our general policy and practices for protecting personal information that we collect through our Web site at (the “Site”) that we operate and which post this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy explains the types of information we gather through our Site, how we use that information, and the choices individuals may exercise regarding our use of, and their ability to correct, that information. By submitting personal information to us, you are consenting to use of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Notice, Choice and Use

In order to use this Site, you do not need to send us any personal information. You may voluntarily provide us with personal information, such as your name and contact information, by subscribing to publications or by submitting requests through our “Contact Us” link. In addition, you may voluntarily provide us with personal information by registering for some of our events (e.g. webcasts, seminars and conferences) or to receive media alerts through our Site, or through the registration processes on our Site. If you choose to apply for job openings through our Sites, we may collect additional information such as name, address and other contact information, work and educational experience, licenses and certifications and other personal information.

We do not seek sensitive personal information on our Site except for our Alumni network. Your decision to submit such information is entirely voluntary.

We may use the personal information you submit through the Site to respond to your requests (e.g. send you information about Kevane’s services or events), send you administrative information or notices, send you information about our services, and for our internal business purposes.

If you apply for job openings, we may use this information to process and evaluate your application for employment and to communicate with you about employment opportunities. We may also retain and use this information to identify and communicate with you about future potential employment opportunities with us. If we elect to make an offer of employment, this information may become part of the employee file and may be used for other employment and work-related purposes.

We retain personal information for only so long as necessary for the intended purpose, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law or our document retention policies.

If you no longer wish to receive promotional communications from us, you may at any time request that we discontinue sending you such materials by contacting us using the contact information listed below.

In certain cases in the future, as our Site expands, we may require visitors to register in order to obtain a user-id and password for authentication and secure access to a transaction or certain business confidential or proprietary information services on the Site.

Personally identifiable information provided to Kevane through the Site is provided voluntarily by visitors. Should visitors subsequently choose to unsubscribe from mailing lists or any registrations, we will provide instructions on the Site area or in communications to our visitors; or a visitor may contact us at:

Cookies and Similar Technologies

As is the case with many commercial Web sites, Kevane automatically logs certain information about user access to the Site, which may include a user’s internet protocol (IP) address, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, as well as date and time stamps. We also use “cookies” which are small data files stored on a user’s computer to enhance your on-line experience when visiting our Site. The use of “cookies” is common practice for most Web sites; however, most Web browsers include settings that allow users to decline cookies.

In addition, we use the services of Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). This analytical tool uses cookies and similar technologies to help analyze how users use the Sites. For more information about the collection and use of data through Google Analytics, please refer to Google offers the ability to opt out from tracking through Google Analytics cookies; for more information, visit

Do not Track (DNT)

Kevane does not track its users to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites may keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. Most popular browsers allow the user to activate a DNT signal to inform third parties (e.g. advertisers) that you do not want to be tracked.

Disclosures and Transfers

Kevane will not disclose an individual’s personal information to third parties, except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, when we have the individual’s permission to make the disclosure, or as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the information was submitted. We also may use or disclose personal information as we believe to be necessary or appropriate: (a) under applicable law, (b) to comply with a legal process or professional standards, or (c) to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property and/or those of our affiliates or clients.

We may use third party service providers to provide services on our behalf who may have access to personal information. We require all such service providers to protect the information we entrust to them.

Kevane may disclose and transfer personal information to service providers and to other member firms of Grant Thornton International Ltd. (“GTIL”) or within Kevane, and this transfer may result in data passing from one jurisdiction to another, including to and from the United States of America. Because privacy laws vary from one jurisdiction to another, personal information may be transferred to a jurisdiction where the laws may differ from the laws in the jurisdiction in which the information originated.

Third-Party Sites

This Privacy Statement does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information, or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any Web site or service to which the Site links. The inclusion of a link on the Site does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by us or by our affiliates.

Data Security

We process personal information only in ways compatible with the purpose for which it was collected, as subsequently authorized by the individual, or as otherwise permitted by applicable law. To the extent necessary for such purposes, we take reasonable steps to make sure that personal information is accurate, complete, current, and otherwise reliable with regard to its intended use.

Access and Correction

If an individual becomes aware that information we maintain about that individual is inaccurate, or if an individual would like to update or review his or her information, the individual may contact us using the contact information below. We will take reasonable steps to permit individuals to correct, amend, or delete information that is demonstrated to be inaccurate. We may limit or deny access to personal information where providing such access would be unreasonably burdensome or inappropriate under the circumstances. All requests to access or change personal information will be handled in accordance with applicable legal requirements.

Visitors who choose to register with this Site may correct and update their user profiles or unsubscribe from certain communications at any time. Visitors who would like to access or change their profiles or would like to request a copy of their personal information should contact us at

Enforcement and Dispute Resolution

We will investigate and attempt to resolve complaints and disputes regarding our use and disclosure of personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We encourage interested persons to raise any concerns with us using the contact information below. Any employee who we determine is in violation of our privacy policies will be subject to disciplinary process.

Merger, Change in Ownership and Other Business Transitions

In the event Kevane goes through a business transition, such as a merger, or the acquisition or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personal information may be among the assets transferred.
