privacy policy
As of 3.15.04
eKC online and its parent company Discovery Publications Inc. does not give, rent, exchange or sell its mailing and/or email lists to anyone. We are committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to our web site.

We do not collect or use any personal information on visitors to our web site through the use of “cookies” or other software or hardware techniques. In order to better understand our readers our web host does provide us with certain server statistics. We look at the number of hits the site receives, broken down by month, week, day and hour. We also keep track of the domains from which this site is accessed, the top 20 organizations/ISPs that are used to connect to this site and the top 20 referrers (the last page you were on before you connected to this site). To gauge what our viewers are interested in, we also look at the top 20 search words used in connecting to this site. We have the capability to calculate which eKC online files have been accessed, the types of files, the size of the files requested, the status of those files (i.e. 404 not found etc.) and a breakdown of the operating systems used to access the site.

At times, eKC online may request information from visitors to our web site. This information may include, but not limited to, name, postal and email address, age, sex, zip code and opinions and/or choices concerning what departments/columns/features are accessed on our web site. Responding to such requests are voluntary and on an opt-in basis.

Persons on the eKC online email list will periodically be notified via email of new information and editorial copy (stories, profiles, events, etc.) available at the web site. This information may include items dealing with our advertisers. Persons on the eKC online web site will also be part of Kansas City Event Driver, an entertainment electronic newsletter that is emailed every Thursday.

Persons who wished to be removed (opt-out) from the eKC online email list should contact us by phone at 816-474-1516 or 1-800-899-9730 or email

If we are required by law to disclose the information that you have submitted, we will attempt to provide you with notice (unless we are prohibited) that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by email, if you have given us an email address, or by postal mail if you have entered a postal address. We will independently object to overly broad requests for access to information about users of our web site. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information.
