For Children Under the Age of 13
We will not knowingly accept or collect information from children under the age of 13. Collection of Your Personal Identifiable Information ("PII") and Other Personal Information This Web site is intended to provide a unique education, entertainment and information site for users without requiring them to submit any more PII than is necessary to participate in particular activities that may be offered, or to use the Site effectively. We do not require users to register or submit PII in order to visit the Web site. Some activities on the Site may be performed without providing PII. When we ask for PII to participate in an activity we will not require anyone to disclose more PII than we believe is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity. At times, users may be asked to provide non-PII such as first name, age, gender, zip code, city, and/or state of residence.
When PII May Be Requested
Registration and/or input of PII may be required to participate in activities such as, but not limited to, participation sweepstakes or contests, specific promotional activities and offers, to receive email notices, and some surveys. If PII is requested for participation in an activity you cannot participate without disclosing the requested PII.
Use of PII
We may use PII for activities, such as but not limited to, sweepstakes, and other Web site promotional activity (i) to register you for those activities, to verify that you comply with the published Rules or Terms and Conditions, and to notify you if you are a winner in a sweepstakes, to keep track of your compliance with an activity's requirements, or provide you with information regarding promotion activity,(ii) for prize and email delivery, (iii) for notification of important changes to Web site functions, and (iv) to ensure that we comply with applicable laws. The PII you disclose for these and similar activities may be shared with third parties such as those who may administer the activity for us and shipping companies that may deliver a prize. We will inform you at the time we are collecting the PII that such collection is a requirement for participation.
Purchases through our Site, if offered, may require disclosure of your PII, your (or your parent's/legal guardian's) credit card information and other PII, and information about the name and address of the person receiving the purchases. The credit card information may be subject to verification by the issuing credit card company or other company. Shipping information will be shared with the shipping company. Sales and shipping records will also be generated and maintained. Unless you give us permission at the time we collect such information, however, this information will not be used for any purpose except the fulfillment and recordkeeping of the transaction.
Opting Out-Continued PII Use
If you opt out of the use of your PII, we may still use your PII for internal purposes, or as may be necessary to administer the Site, for example, sharing that data with those persons or entities that administer the Web site. Your PII may further still be used to comply with applicable law, for example, but not limited, to comply with valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order, and to report sweepstakes and contest winnings as may be required by law. And it may be used in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify or contact you, or bring legal action against you if, for example, we believe that you may be causing injury to, or interference with, our Site or company's rights or property, or other users of the Site, whether your actions are intentional or unintentional. Further, your PII may be shared with any successors and/or assigns we may have. If you wish to change your decisions to "opt out" or to "opt in" as applicable, you can email us at email@example.com.
Safety and Security
We take steps to help ensure that all information provided by you, whether PII or non-PII, is treated securely. We have implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect visitor information from unauthorized access and improper use. From time to time, we review our security procedures in order to consider appropriate new technology and methods. Please be aware though that despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.
If you share your computer or use a computer that is accessed by the general public, remember to sign off and close your browser window when you have finished your session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access your PII. No data transmission over the Internet, however, can be guaranteed to be totally secure. While we try to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us. You use the Site, and provide us with PII, at your own risk. To the extent reasonably necessary to protect a user's safety, we may collect his or her name, address, and/or email address. To protect our security, to protect us against liability, or as required by law, we may collect a user's name and email address. PII collected pursuant to this provision will not be used for any other purpose.
