What information do we collect?
In order to provide our educational services in a meaningful and useful manner, we may request and/or collect information from you on a voluntary basis when you (as a parent, guardian, teacher, after school program, kids’ club, or library program coordinator or other official of such program): (1) register with us; (2) participate in contests, events or promotions; (3) send questions or comments via e-mail to our support center; and/or, (4) fill out online surveys. The requested information may include personal information such as your name and e-mail address. For some activities, we may also ask you to create a password and to provide demographic information about your children, such as gender, school and grade level. If demographic information is collected for an activity that also requires personal information, we may combine the demographic information with your personal information. This allows us to tailor the notices we send you and the content we provide you according to your preferences and interests.
We do not seek to collect or request any personal information from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, only your parent, guardian, teacher, after school program, kids’ club, or library representative, or other official of such organization, can provide any information to us about you for purposes of registration and other online activities. Kids, if you are ever unsure about anything you are seeing on this site, ask your parent, guardian or teacher for help. See Notice to Parents below for more information.
If you are an adult and wish to register with the Web site, you may be asked to supply personal information such as your full name and e-mail address. We may also ask you to provide demographic information, such as your postal code, or demographic information relating to children in your household, such as gender and grade level. We use such information to periodically contact you with relevant announcements, and to improve and tailor our educational materials.
To participate in some of our promotions or contests where prizes can be won by individuals , after school programs, kids’ clubs, libraries or schools, you may be asked to provide your e-mail address, screen name, your child's first name, grade level, gender and school, so that your child may participate in the contest. This is the means by which we can identify the winning kids and notify the adult(s) who registered them. We will let you know if your child, child’s school, after school program, kids’ club, or library has won a prize. All promotions on the Web site are administered by us. Your personal information is not shared with any third parties, except with entities who use it solely to provide support for the operations of the promotion/contest.
Should your child , your child’s school, after school program, kids’ club, or library win a prize, you will be notified by e-mail. By allowing you to send an e-mail to us, we are not attempting to collect any personal information about you. We will only use personal information of parents and teachers (such as full name and e-mail address) contained in your e-mail to respond to your specific inquiry or comments in the e-mail. Although we may retain your e-mail for a period of time, we will not use any personal information contained in your e-mail for any purpose other than responding to your specific inquiry or comments. If you have registered with us and provided your e-mail to us as discussed above, as indicated, we will only use such information as summarized above.
In order to improve the user experience at our Web site, we may employ online surveys for visitors to volunteer anonymous demographic information about themselves and provide us feedback about why they visit the Web site and what we can do to make it better.
Whatever the activity may be, we will only collect information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to fulfill your requests and our legitimate educational objectives. If you do not want to submit personal information when requested, you will not be able to access certain areas on the Web site.
Who is collecting your information and how will it be used?
We collect the personal information you provide on the Web site. We will use the information you submit to our Web site to send you information, including information about new contests, features and enhancements, and other events of interest, and to respond to your inquiries. We also use your personal information for our demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the educational offerings we provide you and can better meet the needs of our audience.
The demographic information (e.g., age and gender) you provide is collected by us and may be disclosed in aggregate to third parties. This aggregate demographic information cannot be used to personally identify you or your computer.
From time to time, we may employ and share users' personal information (including that of children under 13 provided by parents, guardians or teachers) with entities who will use it solely to provide support for the internal operations of the Web site (e.g., online registration and e-mail services or technical support). These entities have agreed that they will not use your personal information for any other purpose, and have agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information they obtain from us.
We may disclose personal information (including that of children under 13 provided by parents, guardians or teachers) in the good faith belief that we are required to do so by law, including but not limited to disclosure to law enforcement or other government officials in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, other activity that is illegal or may expose you or us to legal liability, or in response to legal process such as subpoenas. We do not sell, rent, or otherwise disclose personal information collected from and about users (including children under 13) to third parties for promotional purposes. However, in the event of a dissolution, donation, merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other similar event, information provided by Web site users may be transferred to a successor, assignee or donee, if permitted by and done in accordance with applicable law. Please see our “Questions and Complaints” section below for instructions on how we will notify you of such an event.
Clear GIFs, sometimes called "Web bugs," are file objects, usually a graphic image such as a transparent one pixel-by-one pixel GIF (Graphics Interchange Format, one of the two most common file formats for images on the Web), that are placed on a Web page that are placed on a Web page or in an e-mail message to monitor user behavior. The GIF tells us the IP address of the computer that fetched our page, the URL of the page the GIF is on, the time the page was viewed, the type of browser used, and can tell us a previously set cookie value. This anonymous information is returned by the clear GIF to us and we use this information to accurately count visitors and understand how they navigate and use our network of sites. We do not combine information gathered through clear GIFs with your personal information.
Other information passively collected by our Web site is in the form of logs - files that record website activity and gather statistics about web users' browsing habits. These entries are generated anonymously, and help us determine (among other things) how many and how often users have visited our Web sites, which pages they've visited, and other similar data. We also use the log file entries for our internal demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the online services we provide you. Log files are used internally only, and are not associated with any particular user, computer, or browser.
Linking to third party sites
To provide relevant information not found on our Web site and to facilitate the educational experience we offer, we may provide links from our Web site to third party Web sites. We will notify users when they are leaving our Web site and we encourage our users to read third party sites' privacy policies before submitting personal information.
If you do not want us to send you e-mails, you can opt-out at the time of registration or at the time of information collection. You may also follow the unsubscribe instructions included in each promotional e-mail. If you are receiving e-mails and at a later date you choose to opt-out and have your name removed from our e-mailing list, you can do so by sending an e-mail to our Website Administrator at email@example.com. Please understand that if you choose to opt-out, we will be unable to notify you if your child wins a prize or helps to win a prize for his or her school, after school program, kids’ club, or library.
