Collection of Information
A. Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information.
You are always free to decline cookies, but in doing so your child may not be able to use certain features on our Web sites. The "help" segment of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to configure your browser to not accept new cookies, how to have the browser inform you when you receive a new cookie, and how to erase cookies from your hard drive.
We may also use web beacons to count page visits by our users, to access our cookies, and otherwise to improve your experience on a Company Web site. Web beacons (also known as clear gifs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. If you or your child has registered to receive e-mails from our Company Web sites, we may also use web beacons in our HTML-based e-mails to let us know which e-mails the recipients have opened and acted upon, allowing us to gauge the effectiveness of our communications and marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these e-mails, please refer to your Profile on your Parent Dashboard. Web beacons also help us manage online advertising, and are provided by our ad management Service Providers. These files enable our ad management Service Providers to recognize a unique cookie on your Web browser, which in turn enables us to learn which advertisements bring visitors to our Web site. The cookie was placed by us, or by another advertiser who works with a Service Provider. With both cookies and web beacons, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. Our advertising Service Providers also use anonymous information about users' visits to this and other Web sites in order to deliver advertisements online that may be of interest to them.
B. Collection and Use of Personal Information.
We do not make a child's participation in any Company Web site activity contingent on that child's disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity. In order for any child to register on any Company Web site, we collect the following information about your child: first and last name, date of birth, gender, zip code, parent's e-mail address, password, secret question ( as a reminder for a forgotten password), and a unique username. In order to collect and use a child's personal information for these purposes, we are required to obtain verifiable consent from the child's parent or guardian. To reasonably ensure that the individual providing the consent is an adult, we require you to sign and return a consent form, either by mail or electronically (or if your child is participating in our program through their school, the consent form can be returned to their classroom). The consent form will request the parent's ( or guardian's) first and last name, mailing address, date of birth, gender, e-mail address, and telephone number. We may use the information collected about you and your child to inform you about future Company promotions, sweepstakes, contests, and other marketing activities. We may use the zip code and username information collected about your child to rank your child's performance on website activities and other competitions conducted on the Company Web sites. Additionally, there may be areas of the Company Web sites that are available only for registered Company Web site members.
We allow parents (or guardians) to manage their children's personal information or opt-in preferences by clicking your Profile on your Parent Dashboard. Parents or guardians may contact us to alter permissions, access the personally identifiable information that the Company has collected about their child, correct factual errors in such information, and request to have this information deleted or request that the Company Web sites no longer collect, use or maintain such information. To protect the privacy and security of Company Web site members online, the Company will take reasonable steps to verify the identity of the parent or guardian before granting the parent or guardian access to the personal information that we collect and maintain about the parent or guardian and his or her child.
If you wish to opt out of future promotional e-mails, you may request to unsubscribe within each promotional e-mail or SMS text message. We may send service-related e-mails and SMS text messages to Company Web site registrants. These may include a welcome message and other non-promotional e-mails or text messages, from which no opt-out option is provided. The Company may discontinue any or all of the Company Web sites and any related activities at any time and for any reason.
Disclosure of Information.
The Company will transfer or otherwise disclose the information it collects from children or parents to employees and independent contractors of the Company, its subsidiaries, affiliates, and Service Providers if the disclosure will enable that party to perform a business, professional, or technical support function for the Company, or if required to do so by law. These entities are restricted to using this information only to provide a service on our behalf. We do not share personal information with any third party for that party's own promotional purposes. We will also transfer or otherwise disclose personal information in response to judicial process, to comply with legal requirements, and, as permitted under provisions of law, to provide information to law enforcement agencies or in connection with an investigation on a matter related to public safety. We may also use the information as permitted by law to protect our rights or property, the Company Web sites or their users.
Security of Information.
We maintain industry-standard physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your personal information.
In the event that the Company or any of its assets are acquired by a third party, personal information acquired by the Company may be one of the assets transferred. In such an event, we will notify you as explained below under "Changes to this Privacy Statement".
Third Party Web sites
To the extent that any of the third-party sites accessible through the Company Web sites has different privacy practices from those stated in this Policy, those third-party privacy practices govern the collection and use of information you provide when visiting those sites. The Company is not responsible for the policies, content, and practices of third-party Web sites to which the Company Web sites may link and you should refer to those sites' own privacy policies to learn how they collect and use personal information.
